Edmonds was receiving some hype earlier this off-season that he could be in line for a huge workload. I never bought into that thinking at all and it didn't shock me to see the Cardinals add Conner to this backfield. Edmonds will have his set role, which will have him seeing 10-12 touches per game, but he's never going to step into this massive workload that would push him into top-24 consideration for fantasy football. He's a fine RB3 for your roster that receives a bump in Full PPR formats, but we should temper our expectations for the dynamic RB in 2021.Sermon now enters an offense that is set to explode under Lance and we could be looking at one of 2021's greatest fantasy steals. With Mostert above him on the depth chart - for the time being - Sermon's ADP will remain low enough where you don't have to rely on him as a starter. He can remain on your bench until he steps in as the lead option in this offense and you suddenly now have a potential locked-and-loaded RB2. With Sermon's skillset and size, he should be a factor around the goal line and he could see enough of a workload on the ground to bring a safe floor each week. We'll see a rotation of other backs in this offense, but Sermon figures to see 12-15 touches per week if he is the starter. We might have to wait a while until we get to the point where Sermon is the starter, but he's worth stashing on your bench for when that moment comes.

James Conner was signed in free agency, but the good news for Edmonds is the Cardinals didn't address RB in the draft. Conner has had injury issues in the past. He seems too slow for Kliff Kingbury's high octane offense. If Conner goes down, all of a sudden Edmonds is in line for a big workload. Kyler Murray will steal some TDS, but he also opens up running lanes on the read option. Edmonds could be a sneaky pick on draft day.49'ers RB Jeff Wilson's knee injury in May (out 4-6 months) forces everyone to move up one rung. Rookie RB Trey Sermon suddenly becomes very interesting. Preach it Brother Ringo! He's a heartbeat away from the starting role in San Fran. He lit up Clemson in the college football playoffs and looked good doing it. The 49'ers have one of the better lines in the NFL. Rookie QB Trey Lance lurks though. If Lance takes over at QB he could vulture some TDs. The comp by scouts is Josh Allen. That said, if Sermon's price tag doesn't skyrocket over the summer he could be a nice sleeper. That said, I'm already hearing a lot of buzz about him on Twitter and it's only June. Now let us pray to the fantasy gods for good luck in 2021.

Drake left, Edmonds drew featured back endorsements from Kingsbury... and then James Conner joined. Now Rondale Moore could threaten receiving snaps. Conner has a nose for the end zone, can catch, and could play a ~200ish touch role. A big name rookie would've been more damning, but this isn't great, either. Although Edmonds has dominated first-team work in early preseason action, including all but one third down snap. 3-down role in a juggernaut O remains a slim possibility, and worth the midround stab to find outAbsolutely perfect landing spot, should thrive in Shanny's zone blocking scheme. Mostert still the 1, but we know his injury history. Sermon has been the main RB2 all camp

Have we seen Edmonds carry the workload for the Cardinals before? Well, kind of. Despite Kenyan Drake struggling through much of 2020, there were just two games where Edmonds finished with more than eight carries, which is certainly a concern. The Cardinals went out and signed James Conner in free agency, but he's proven to be incapable of staying healthy with a full workload, and it wasn't a pricey contract, so maybe we see Edmonds in a bigger role. Whatever the case, we know he has the pass-catching role locked down, which has value in itself, as he was a flex-type option most weeks (he was an RB3 or better 62.5 percent of the time). This offense is going to score points, so if Edmonds were to get a slight bump in carries, he could make his way into the RB2 conversation. Draft him as an RB3/flex and hope that's the case. Just know that he's still yet to crack 100 carries in a season.As of now, we have to assume it's Raheem Mostert as the starting running back, though Kyle Shanahan did trade up into the third round to get Sermon. This should tell you that Mostert is on a short leash, and to be fair, he hasn't been able to hold up to a workhorse workload. The 49ers have one of the softest schedules in the league among running backs, so if we start hearing whispers that Sermon will start right out of the gate, he should shoot up draft boards. For now, he should be viewed as one of the best bench stashes in fantasy football.

Edmonds is being perceived as the RB1 in Arizona, but we should be a bit concerned about how he'll be used. He had 52 receptions last year, but his Vegas O/U is 45.5 receptions WITH OUT Kenyan Drake there. He's only had one goal line carry in 3 seasons and he's never hit 100 carries in a season.Trey Sermon "continues to get a lot of snaps with the first-team unit," could eventually begin games as 49ers main back to "tenderize the defense" before Raheem Mostert enters. @evansilva "a lot of snaps at RB with the 1st team unit. In 2019, the 49ers liked to begin games with Tevin Coleman at tailback, which both tenderized the defense & kept the 49ers' home-run hitter, Raheem Mostert, fresh. Sermon appears to be on track for a similar role" @DBro_FFB

Edmonds is currently the lead back in Arizona, but he will spit carries with James Conner. Edmonds is an upside flex option in a very good offense.I do not think Wilson and Mostert will stay healthy this year and when all is said and done, Sermon should emerge as the lead back in SF.

I know Kliff Kingsbury went on record as saying Chase Edmonds was a starting back in the NFL. Don't confuse starting with workhorse. They are not the same thing. James Connor was brought in to share the workload and barring an injury to one, this seems like a backfield that is destined to frustrate fantasy owners, even if you roster both. Edmonds as RB depth is ok, but I'd prefer a WR in my flex spot over Edmonds.
