Would you rather have drake or mixon rest of season?
Drake all day long. The points are coming. I have him in both of my leagues and I have no intention of trading him yet. If I had Mixon, he’d be gone or, at a minimum, benched. How do you get over 20 touches against a mediocre defense and still do nothing?
Edit: also, Drake plays on a MUCH better offense.
I agree with @Branhammer.
Drake had decent rush yds (86 wk 2 and 73 wk 3) the kast 2 weeks, just no TDs were scored. If he would have found the end zone once each game, we are not talking about Drake at all.
Furthermore, Murray has been vulturing TDs away from Drake. Murray is currently on pace to score 24-26 rush TDs, that would obliterate Newton’s QB rush TD record by 10-12. As good as Murray is, I do not believe he can sustain that pace.
ARI plays CAR this week. CAR defense is #1 in giving up fantasy points to RBs (7 rush TDs in 3 games). Drake has an excellent chance of being RB1 on the week, if Murray doesn’t vulture TDs away from Drake.
