The 2016 third-round draft pick has played in 54 games for the Dolphins in his career, rushing for 1,532 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Arizona Cardinals have reached deal in principle to acquire running back Kenyan Drake from the Miami Dolphins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. I'll be bringing this Thursday night preview each week breaking down this single-game slate for DraftKings contests as part of the Footballers' DFS Pass.

The pick headed to Miami is a sixth-rounder that can become a fifth-round pick, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Drake was the Dolphins' leading rusher.

Drake will be the fourth player the Dolphins have traded since early September, following left tackle Laremy Tunsil, receiver Kenny Stills and defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick.

David Johnson did not play in Sunday's loss at New Orleans.

Despite being below the.500 mark, rookie head coach Kliff Kingsbury's squad has shown some pluck and feisty abilities this season, outperforming plenty of the expectations many had for a team which ended up with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft. With Drake out of the picture, the Dolphins' top remaining running backs are Walton, Ballage, Myles Gaskin and Patrick Laird. Chase Edmonds was injured in the Saints game, leaving the Cardinals very thin at the positon with the first-place San Francisco 49ers coming to Glendale on Thursday night. The Dolphins face the Steelers at 8:15 p.m. Monday in Pittsburgh.
