It took him a little bit to get going, but Kenyan Drake has emerged as a solid fantasy football asset this season.

There's a lot of obstacles in his way. He's on a team with a mediocre offensive line, he has terrible quarterback play, and he splits carries with Frank Gore. Yet with all of that in front of him, he's still turning into a player you can't stash on your bench.

Over his past four games, Drake is ninth in fantasy points for running back after nearly putting up 20 points per game in PPR formats. 

Imagine how good he'd be if Gore wasn't taking half his touches away from him.

It's hard to ignore what Drake has done lately. He's averaged 93.75 total yards per game on just 13.5 touches. The running back has added four touchdowns over this four-game span including scores in back-to-back weeks. 

The Dolphins may be floundering around .500, but Drake is turning into one of the more reliable options at his position.
