RB Kenyan Drake had a huge game against the Broncos
- The Miami Dolphins got a huge effort from running back Kenyan Drake in the teams Week 13 win over the Denver Broncos. With just one game left to play this week, Drakes 95.4 game grade is the highest of the week across all positions.
- Drake was incredible producing yards beyond the scope of what his blockers created for him. 106 of his 120 yards came after contact on the day. On 26 total touches, Drake forced nine missed tackles and on his 23 carries he averaged a whopping 4.61 yards after contact per attempt. In total he produced an elusive rating of 159.5 which ranked second behind only Alvin Kamara this week.
- The Dolphins have gotten solid production from Drake since they traded Jay Ajayi earlier this season. His overall grade of 74.0 ranks 34th out of 62 eligible running backs. In a limited sample, Drake has been very effective generating extra yards all season. On his 83 touches he has forced 21 missed tackles and when running the ball has averaged 4.69 yards after contact per carry.
- Drake has also shown a knack for the big play, with 46.9 percent of his yards coming on runs of 15 yards or more, the third-highest percentage among running backs with at least 62 carries.
- Pass protection has been an underrated skill of Drake’s. He currently leads all running backs in pass-blocking efficiency, not allowing a single pressure on 25 pass-block snaps.
