Jacob Wayne
Lineups
When the Jaguars signed Chris Thompson earlier this offseason, I already started to project him to eat into Leonard Fournette's pass-catching volume from last season. Fournette was released this past week, leaving behind 100 targets to go to other players on the team. Chris Thompson has historically struggled to stay healthy, but he has a strong rapport with Jay Gruden (new Jags OC). He'll be heavily involved in the passing game as long as he can stay on the field. 
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
In Jay Gruden's last two full seasons as Washington's head coach, Thompson played at a 64-catch, 1,000-total-yard pace when healthy. Now in Jacksonville, where Gruden is offensive coordinator and the RB depth is razor thin, Thompson should be the Jags' third-down back right away and could earn an early-down role. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
With Leonard Fournette no longer in Jacksonville, Thompson could step into a nice pass-catching role on a team that projects to trail in most games. Meanwhile, it will be Ryquell Armstead taking all the early-down work. I like Thompson in PPR and Armstead in standard,Edwards along with Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins make up one of the scariest, yet confusing backfields in the league. While it's likely that Edwards will be the third man out, we've seen the Ravens get tricky with their formations. I wouldn't draft Edwards alone but he's not a terrible handcuff to Ingram or Dobbins.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
It's easy to forget that Chris Thompson is a sensational running back when he's healthy. An explosive receiver and under-appreciated runner, he arrives in an unsettled Jags backfield and may just take over much of the third-down work. With Leonard Fournette out of town, Thompson is an intriguing PPR add in the James White/Tarik Cohen mold.With the arrival of JK Dobbins and expected emergence of Justice Hill (still a great boy band name), it's easy to forget that Gus Edwards is very much still a thing. The Gus Bus rumbled through 2019 with 140 touches for 750+ yards and 2 TDs and in an offense with 600 rushes last year, there's room for Gus in the 2020 offense too. While I don't think he's got any fantasy value initially, he only needs Ingram OR Dobbins to go down and he's suddenly in again. Plus, it's not impossible Gus starts ahead of the rookie until he finds his feet. Edwards is an intriguing deep non-PPR option.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Thompson's struggled to stay healthy the past few seasons, but he's proven to be very valuable when he's in the lineup. Jacksonville's defense is no longer the rock-solid unit that it was a few years ago and the Jaguars are most likely going to need to be playing catch up in a lot of games this season. This leads to Thompson being heavily involved out of the backfield as the receiving back, which is going to inevitably lead to some level of fantasy production. He's not going to be a top-36 option or anything, but Thompson could have some value this season as a filler in your lineup during bye weeks.Edwards has flashed at separate points throughout his short NFL career, but with the addition of JK Dobbins to this backfield, it's unlikely that we see Edwards involved in any sort of significant role in 2020. Edwards received quite a bit of work last season, but the majority of this happened after the Ravens went up on their opponents and pulled their starters. Edwards can remain on waiver wires in typical 12-man leagues.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Thompson should be in line to see plenty of passing-down work with the Jaguars, as we know that Jay Gruden loved to utilize him heavily in that role when healthy with Washington. With Leonard Fournette being released, Thompson may see a slight uptick in usage, but he does not have the size or durability to carry a major load in the backfield. In half- and full-PPR formats, he should be rostered, but even with Fournette gone, he's not worth much in standard leagues.Edwards could probably be a star if he got a full workload in Baltimore. He's averaged 5.3 yards per carry in his career and has lost just one fumble in two seasons. He would have been a high-end handcuff for Mark Ingram this year, but the addition of J.K. Dobbins essentially relegates Edwards to irrelevancy. He'd almost certainly need multiple injuries to have much fantasy value, and despite the high upside in that unlikely scenario, he's not worth wasting a roster spot on.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Thompson followed his old coach Jay Gruden over to the Jaguars, though it's not worth getting excited about, as Thompson has struggled to stay healthy and is going to be 30 years old later this year. He's more of a party pooper to someone like Leonard Fournette than he is a standalone fantasy asset. Even if Fournette were to miss time, Thompson's role wouldn't change much. 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 No one cares about Gus Edwards for fantasy, but would just like to put in perspective how not-good a 700 rushing yard season can be: 0-6 points: x11 7-10 points: x3 10+ points: x2 (once in week 17)

UFA - Could be a very intriguing addition to the right attack
