Kenyan Drake Gets Released

Green Bay Packers running back Kenyan Drake has been released by the organization on Friday. Drake was signed to the practice squad over a month ago. However, he only appeared in one game and had one carry in that contest. It doesn't look like the Packers are going to need Drake heading into their upcoming playoff game. The team will move on from Drake and he'll look to catch on as a backup elsewhere this offseason.

Kenyan Drake Elevated From Practice Squad

Green Bay Packers running back Kenyan Drake has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's Week 15 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This is the second week in a row that Drake has been promoted to the active roster. It's worth noting that Drake didn't log in a single snap last week. He was brought up last week because Aaron Jones (knee) was inactive, but Drake never took the field. Now, the Packers might be without both Jones and AJ Dillon (thumb) for Sunday's game. That means, Drake could actually have some streaming appeal if both backs are forced to the sideline.

Packers Add Running Back Kenyan Drake

The Green Bay Packers signed free-agent veteran running back Kenyan Drake to their practice squad on Tuesday and cut running back James Robinson from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Drake will take Robinson's spot as backfield depth while Aaron Jones (knee) recovers from an MCL sprain that he suffered in Week 11. Jones has missed the last two games and could be unavailable once again on Monday night in Week 14 versus the New York Giants. The 29-year-old Drake played in two games this year with the Baltimore Ravens and had just three touches for 31 total yards. He remains off the fantasy radar while backing up Jones, AJ Dillon and Patrick Taylor in his new home.

Kenyan Drake Released From Browns Practice Squad

Veteran running back Kenyan Drake was released by the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday. The 29-year-old signed with Cleveland's practice squad on October 31, but he lasted just under a month with the organization. In a corresponding move, the Browns signed John Kelly Jr., who has been on and off the team's practice squad since 2020. Drake appears to be near the end of his NFL career after stops in Miami, Arizona, Baltimore, and Cleveland.

Kenyan Drake Joining Browns Practice Squad

The Cleveland Browns are signing veteran running back Kenyan Drake to the practice squad on Tuesday. Drake played in one game for the Baltimore Ravens this season, rushing one time for zero yards and catching two passes for 31 yards. He also lost a fumble. He was released on October 17 and has remained a free agent until now. With Kareem Hunt, Jerome Ford, and Pierre Strong Jr. on the roster, it's tough to find a path toward fantasy upside for the 29-year-old ball-carrier. He's likely being signed as a mere depth move since the running back position always sees a ton of injuries. For now, he can be ignored in fantasy football.

Kenyan Drake Released By The Ravens

Former Baltimore Ravens running back Kenyan Drake has been released by the team. The Ravens lost starting running back J.K. Dobbins (achilles) in early September and Drake signed a few weeks later to help shore up their injured backfield. He only played in two games however, totaling 2 catches on three targets for 31 yards and a lost fumble. With both Justice Hill and Gus Edwards seemingly healthy at the moment, there's not much need for the veteran Drake. He'll likely sign with another team's practice squad in the coming days or weeks.

Kenyan Drake Activated For Week 5

Baltimore Ravens running back Kenyan Drake was elevated to the active roster ahead of Sunday's AFC North showdown against the Steelers. Keaton Mitchell (shoulder) isn't ready to play, and Melvin Gordon III will remain on the practice squad, so a roster spot was up for grabs. However, with Gus Edwards available, Drake probably won't get enough work to make him relevant for fantasy managers, regardless if Justice Hill (foot, hamstring) doesn't suit up.

Melvin Gordon, Kenyan Drake Elevated From Practice Squad

Baltimore Ravens running backs Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake have been elevated from the practice squad to the active roster ahead of the Week 3 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. Justice Hill (toe) will miss Sunday's contest, leaving Gus Edwards as the only healthy running back on the active roster. The Ravens elevated Gordon last week against the Cincinnati Bengals. Yet, the veteran didn't see the field. Meanwhile, Baltimore added Drake to the practice squad earlier this week. Edwards will be the lead running back and the only viable starting option for fantasy players. However, expect Gordon and Drake to see some work tomorrow against the Colts.

Colts Release Kenyan Drake

The Indianapolis Colts released veteran running back Kenyan Drake on Sunday, according to a source. Drake really must not have impressed the team's coaching staff during training camp and the preseason, as they could use all the running back depth they can get with Jonathan Taylor (ankle) and Zack Moss (arm) both injured. With the 29-year-old now back on the free-agent market, Deon Jackson, Evan Hull and Jake Funk will serve as depth for Indy in the RB room behind Taylor, who could be traded, and Moss. Drake, a former third-rounder in 2016 by the Miami Dolphins, has played for three different teams (Cardinals, Raiders, Ravens) in the last three seasons. In 12 games (five starts) in 2022, he had 109 carries for 482 yards and four TDs with Baltimore.

Kenyan Drake Not A Lock For 53-Man Roster

Indianapolis Colts running back Kenyan Drake is not projected to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer James Boyd. Drake just signed with the Colts a few weeks ago so he had an uphill battle in regards to making the team. Indianapolis' backfield situation remains murky with Jonathan Taylor on the trade block and Zack Moss (wrist) out with an injury. Moss should be back early enough in the season to make an impact but it's anyone's guess if Taylor ends up being traded or placed on the PUP list. Deon Jackson should be the odds-on favorite to be the Colts' starting running back in Week 1 if Drake is cut and Taylor is unavailable. Evan Hull would likely factor into that backfield mix as well. Drake posted 571 total yards with five touchdowns as a member of the Ravens last season and would likely sign with another team if Indy decides to let him go.
