It will work in the sense that it will record sound (and it's quite sensitive). The question is placement. To fully record drums, normally one would a) mic each drum and cymbal, b) use one or more overhead mics to capture ensemble sound, c) use one or more mics located elsewhere in the room to capture ensemble sound.
Mic vendors typically sell kits of instrument mics, complete with drum mounting hardware, for use as described in a) above.
The Yeti is physically a relatively large mic. In the context of recording drums, it would likely best be used as a room or overhead mic.
