Kenyan Drake Fantasy Outlook
One of the best trades last year was when the Cardinals acquired Kenyan Drake midseason. You could tell Drake was happy to be in a new environment and his play elevated and matched his mood.
It is hard not to talk about Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray when discussing anything that involves the Cardinals. Kingsbury will be calling plays himself again this year.
He certainly showed that he likes a fast pace. The Cardinals like to tempo and keep defenses on their heels.
When Drake is at his best is when he is heavily involved and gets in a rhythm. There were times last season that Drake was fed the rock and he produced.
The times Drake was given plenty of opportunities, Kyler Murray was hurt. To make matters worse the Hopkins trade speaks volumes to what Kingsbury is thinking.
Overall, Drake takes advantage of his opportunities. There are even some designed screens or gadget plays for him also. Expect a little inconsistency.
Some games Drake will light up the stat sheet for sure.
Arizona Cardinals Offensive Line 2020
Projected Starting Line: LT: DJ Humphries, LG: Justin Pugh, C: Mason Cole, RG: JR Sweezy, RT: Marcus Gilbert
This offensive line is above average. It is a solid group with a good mix of experience and youth.
Gilbert, Sweezy and Pugh all have over 80 career starts.
Humphries is a former first round pick with some good traits. However, he has had a ton of injuries and had 13 penalties last season.
Mason Cole is the youngster of the group with the least experience. He shows good effort and looks to be improving as his career advances.
The unit as a whole is similar. Each player has above average athleticism, strength and power. There is nothing to rave about with this group in regards to the run game. They do their jobs. They need to improve their pass blocking but that will not hurt Kenyan Drake.
Kenyan Drake Strength of Schedule
The Cardinals will only play in two primetime games this season. However, being a west coast team the majority of their games are played in the 4pm EST slate.
The schedule does not favor Arizona with 7 games against defenses that finished in the top 10 during 2019.
A week 8 bye is perfect. A good rest time for players.
