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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

Draughn had been a forgotten man the last couple of weeks, but made a couple of 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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Draughn had just one carry for 16 yards, but caught five of seven targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Draughn actually led the 49ers in all receiving categories, as Colin Kaepernick struggled with his accuracy, completing just 16 of 34 passes. Meanwhile, Mike Davis got the start and scored an early rushing touchdown, but was quiet otherwise. DuJuan Harris, who was just promoted from the active roster, was also involved, carrying the ball 11 times for 39 yards, while catching both of his targets for 18 yards. Draughn will probably retain some value in PPR formats, even when Carlos Hyde (shoulder) returns to the lineup. Make sure Draughn is not in your lineup next week, as San Francisco will have its bye.

Draughn could see his receiving back role resurface if Hyde (shoulder) is held out of Sunday's game.

EDGE Analysis

Hyde is considered a long-shot to play Sunday against Tampa Bay, which would open up a potential running back by committee situation. Mike Davis is better suited for early-down work, but Draughn could get re-involved as a pass catching back with no true three-down back outside of Hyde on the roster. Draughn could be a sneaky play in deeper PPR formats.

Draughn carried the ball just once for two yards and failed to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 45-16 loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Draughn was expected to be a change-of-pace and receiving back for the 49ers this season, but poor play has resulted in very limited playing time. He was only on the field for five of the 49ers' 61 offensive snaps. Colin Kaepernick -- who took over the team's starting quarterback duties -- doesn't check down to his running backs as often as Blaine Gabbert did, so Draughn's skills as a pass-catcher may continue to sit on the sidelines going forward.

Draughn carried the ball twice for a loss of a yard in Thursday's loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

After rushing for 15 yards combined in Weeks 3 and 4, Draughn dug below rock bottom on Thursday. His yardage and carries have gone down each week since Week 2, while Carlos Hyde has topped 20 carries in three of the first five games of the season and Blaine Gabbert has topped 10 carries in each of the last two games - a trend Colin Kaepernick is likely to continue. Draughn has further competition with Mike Davis for scraps, making him a non-factor from a fantasy perspective.

Draughn rushed for five yards on two carries and caught one pass for three yards in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

The output was a season low for Draughn. His touches have gone from nine to nine to six to three in the first quarter of the season. He hasn't scored since Week 1 and has difficulty getting past one of the top power backs in the game Carlos Hyde. That challenge is being exacerbated by a mobile quarterback, Blaine Gabbert, that has more rushes than Draughn, 29 to 23.

Draughn was held to 12 yards on six touches (five carries and one catch) in Sunday's 37-18 loss to Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Draughn did next to nothing with his limited touches Sunday. His absence from the gameplan in a contest that the 49ers trailed from end-to-end is concerning for a back who's value relies on getting receptions out of the backfield. This further proves that Carlos Hyde is the unquestioned, every-down back in San Francisco.
