2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
After multiple seasons stuck in committee backfields in Miami, Kenyan Drake finally got an opportunity to show that he can produce as a bell cow running back when he was traded to Arizona mid-way through the 2019 season.

Drake made his debut for the Cardinals in Week 9, against a very stout San Francisco defense. He carried the ball 15 times for 110 yards and a touchdown, while adding an additional 52 yards receiving. With Chase Edmonds out due to an injury, Drake proceeded to take over the backfield down the stretch, becoming a league-winning fantasy back as he produced monster games in the championship weeks.

While most would assume that Drake has run away with this backfield, there is a chance that this backfield remains somewhat of a committee here in 2020. Yes, we know that Drake was the best fantasy producer in the Cardinals backfield in 2019, but one of the most under-reported realities of the 2019 season is that David Johnson was a fantasy RB1 for the first six weeks of the season before he got hurt. He did it without going over 100 rushing yards in a single game, but he - like Drake - was a serious threat in the passing game and he scored five touchdowns in those six games. The Cardinals were quietly one of the best run-blocking offensive lines in football in 2019, which helped backup Chase Edmonds produce a 126-yard performance on 27 carries in his only full game as the Cardinals' starter before he too, got injured.

It wasn't until both Johnson and Edmonds were out that the Cardinals finally made the move to acquire Drake and while it paid off for Drake, Edmonds also never looked fully healthy when he came back and there's no guarantee that the coaching staff is suddenly going to completely hand over the backfield to Drake this season. We do expect that Drake will lead the backfield but don't be surprised if he's not a complete workhorse. Prior to 2019, Drake had never touched the ball more than 200 times in a season going back all the way to his four years in college at Alabama. He showed that he's capable of shouldering a full workload for at least some of the season, but Edmonds may be more involved than some people want to admit.

The memory of Drake dominating and being a real reason why some people walked away with their fantasy football championships has been ingrained in our minds all offseason and it's led to Drake shooting up draft boards to the point that he's now being selected as high as the late-first round in some leagues. Fortunately, Drake is a quality contributor in the passing game and 50 receptions would seem to be close to his floor if he stays healthy. He could be a league winner again this season if he does remain the team's bell cow back, so he's probably worth taking a shot on if he does fall to the mid-second round in PPR drafts.

Injury Gametime decision for Chase Edmonds, Larry Fitzgerald
Hip injury for Edmonds
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 1, 2:30 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Kingsbury said it'll be game-day decisions whether RB Chase Edmonds and WR Larry Fitzgerald will play Sunday. S Budda Baker is "sore" but Kingsbury is hopeful he will play. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Both missed practice on Friday and haven't practiced all week making them on the wrong side of questionable. If Edmonds misses, this will lock Kenyan Drake into a workhorse role against the Rams. Los Angeles has done well against running backs this season allowing the fifth fewest fantasy points to the position.
