Expert 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
This past year Chase Edmonds was viewed as the Arizona starting running back alongside James Conner. He stood as the RB21 through the first six weeks prior to suffering an ankle injury. Edmonds ranked fourth in the NFL in receptions among running backs (four catches and five targets per game). Edmonds won't ever be a true three-down back due to durability concerns, as he missed seven games this past season. But used properly and kept healthy, there's no denying Edmonds can be a viable fantasy option because of his receiving and explosiveness. His spot-start usage/production in Weeks 16-17 without James Conner in the lineup - 23.9 expected fantasy points per game - showcases a running back who can deliver massive fantasy upside any given week. In 14 career games when Edmonds has commanded at least 11 touches - his average fantasy finish is RB18 (PPR). Edmonds should see plenty of work in a Dolphins backfield splitting snaps with Sony Michel and Raheem Mostert. Considering Gaskins' fantasy spike weeks in 2021 all came from his receiving usage, Edmonds should find similar success in that role with Miami. The late signing of running back Mostert and Michel might have some fantasy gamers soured on Edmonds. However, Edmonds was never going to see a full bell-cow workload. Losing out on some early-down carries to Mostert or Michel was to be expected. I'd still prefer Edmonds in fantasy due to the pass-catching and hope the other signings keeps his ADP at a value.Gordon is bound to be written off by fantasy draft pundits this offseason due to his age, but he proved that he still has gas in the tank in 2021. The 29-year-old running back was efficient across the board, ranking eighth in both PFF rushing grade (83.4) and forced missed tackles (45) while compiling 231 touches (16th). With him back on a high-powered offense and with the potential to receive goal-line touches, he could easily become a screaming value in 2022 like James Conner or Leonard Fournette last year.

96 catches since the start of 2020, and 19.95 PPR ppg when Conner was injured. 
Nick Spencer
Fantasy Six Pack
 Was an RB2 last year with a worse offense, he will likely finish better than where he is drafted but upside is clearly capped. A good 0RB or Hero RB late target as he will be serviceable more weeks than not.

6/22: Now they add Sony Michel. This has quickly become a backfield I want to avoid -- dreaded hot-hand with three very capable backs. BUT Edmonds is paid the most, and a 49ers-inspired scheme could always yield monstrous stats -- Edmonds thrived in zone-usage last year too & has been very active as a receiver in early minicamp -- follow the $$, the ceiling is huge!5/2 Update: Returns to Denver where he was the RB21 last year in a grosser overall offense. Significant upside at a minimal price
