After dropping four of the last five games, the Arizona Cardinals will look to get back on track against the New York Giants in Week 14. The Cardinals have received good news on Kenyan Drake's injury update, as the running back is expected to be active for this week's game.

Kenyan Drake Fantasy Outlook

Despite being limited with a hip injury this week, Drake is expected to give it a go, which is good news for his fantasy managers. After disappointing in fantasy for much of the season, Drake has been much better over the last four weeks.

He has recorded either 100 rushing yards or a TD in each of his last four games, averaging 80.0 yards from scrimmage and 1.0 TDs per game during that stretch.

However, he does draw a tough matchup against the Giants. New York's defense has quietly been really effective against the run. The Giants have allowed the third-fewest rushing yards in the league, allowing just 10 TDs on the ground, which is tied for the 10th-best mark in the NFL.

Given the tough matchup, Drake should be viewed as a decent RB2 option, though he's probably a bit more valuable in standard-scoring formats than PPR leagues.
