The Las Vegas Raiders to the moon?

Kenyan Drake was a controversial signing for the Las Vegas Raiders. The analytics community threw a tantrum about signing a backup running back for that price.

Drake himself is excited about his role in the Raiders offense and expressed this on his Friday interview with Good Morning Football.

“I know who for sure is going to space, and that’s this offense this year. I feel like were definitely taking off to another trajectory you know I mean? You like how I kind of threw that in there?”

Drake's confidence in this offense is high since he has been singing their praises on every show he can jump on. He will bring an element to the passing game Jon Gruden covets. Hopefully, during the season, we see the offense skyrocket in real-time.
