Draughn gained 20 yards on six carries in Sunday's 26-6 loss to Chicago. He did not haul in either of his targets in the passing game. It's tough to blame Draughn for his lack of involvement as a receiver when you consider two San Francisco quarterbacks combined for five completions and 39 yards in Sunday's snowy affair. Expect Draughn to remain involved in the passing game under normal conditions, but he isn't more than a deep league PPR option at best.
Draughn secured all six of his targets for 49 yards in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Dolphins. He did not receive any carries. It was another strange stat line for Draughn, who saw all of his touches exclusively come through the air for the second consecutive week. While it's disappointing to see he's all but fallen out of the backfield rotation in favor of both Carlos Hyde and DuJuan Harris, the five-year veteran continues to be a presence in the passing game, now having caught nine passes for 92 yards and a touchdown over the last two games. Draughn's productivity will naturally fluctuate week to week while being deployed in this manner, making him a low-end fantasy option at the moment.
Draughn caught all three of his targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-17 loss to New England. Draughn had been a forgotten man the last couple of weeks, but made a few nice plays, including his 13-yard touchdown catch late in the game. He's not going to supplant starter Carlos Hyde, but it's interesting that backup RB DuJuan Harris was not targeted once in the passing game.
Draughn was not involved in Sunday's loss to Arizona. This shouldn't come as a surprise considering that Draughn did not receive a carry last week against the Saints. With Carlos Hyde (shoulder) back on the field, DuJuan Harris will serve as the team's change of pace back and Draughn will remain buried on the depth chart.
Draughn failed to touch the ball in Sunday's 41-23 loss to the Saints. Draughn was heavily involved as a pass catcher in San Francisco's last game before its bye, but DuJuan Harris dominated the action Sunday while filling in for Carlos Hyde (shoulder). Harris finished with 15 touches for 142 yards and a touchdown, so for now it's safe to assume that Draughn will not have much of a role.
