Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Don't forget how the Ravens used Dobbins/Edwards the last few games of the 2020 season and into the playoffs last year. Gus Bus will have a role, and the Ravens love to run. He's one of my favorite RB3/FLEX guys this year. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gus Edwards quietly put together a very solid season last year. He didn't get as much publicity or praise as JK Dobbins, but Edwards simply got the job done time and time again. With Mark Ingram now officially out of the picture, it's Edwards and Dobbins as the two main options in this dynamic offense that is committed to their run game for 2021. Edwards' usage might not be the most predictable week in and week out, but he's an extremely smart investment for your fantasy roster due to his upside if something were to happen to Dobbins. If you can get him as your RB4 or RB5 on your roster, that's simply cheating. My Very Early Projection: 161-819-7 rushing & 10-87-0 receiving.Did you know that McKissic led all RBs in targets last season? He finished with more than Kamara, Zeke, Ekeler, etc. and no one saw it coming. While this was in large part due to Alex Smith and his propensity for checking it down, McKissic was a viable fantasy option week in and week out in Full PPR formats. However, now that Fitzpatrick is in town, the opportunities for McKissic most likely take a nose dive. Fitz loves to push the ball downfield and there's also the strong possibility that Gibson takes another big step forward as a receiver and cuts into his workload. McKissic now falls into the low-end RB3 conversation that most likely won't see enough volume to sustain success week after week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Is it possible that Edwards is another version of Raheem Mostert? Someone who's never heavily used, but one who kills it with every opportunity he gets. He's averaged at least 5.0 yards per carry in each of his three seasons with the Ravens. Now that Mark Ingram is gone, it's possible we see Edwards top his 144-carry career mark from 2020, but the real issue is that he's obsolete in the passing game, totaling just 23 targets over 43 games. He's never caught more than two passes in a game. If J.K. Dobbins were to miss time, Edwards would be a solid RB2 in fantasy, though he'd be a bit more touchdown-dependent than most in that range.It seems that Washington is going to utilize Antonio Gibson in the passing game much more often in 2021, which will come at the expense of McKissic. It's not just Gibson, either. The Football Team also signed Curtis Samuel in free agency, a player that's used in a hybrid role who gets plenty of intermittent targets, as well as a handful of carries per game. While McKissic was a hidden gem in PPR formats last year, it appears his role is shrinking in this offense. As someone who relies on volume to produce, McKissic is more of a passing-down handcuff to Gibson.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
Edwards has never had less than 133 carries, and has never averaged under 5.0 ypc, yet he's rarely fantasy relevant. 
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
 in 2020, J.D. McKissic had 80 receptions and nearly 1,000 AP yards. The trouble is twofold in 2021. First, Ryan Fitzpatrick is far less of a check down QB, and that could limit his targets. This is especially true with Washington improving the WR corps this off-season. Secondly, Antonio Gibson really caught fire towards the end of the season. That all being said, McKissic remains one of the better "depth" running backs you can roster in fantasy and has PPR play appeal in certain matchups in season. He's worthy of a late target.

Roto Street Journal
Returns to BAL w/ no Ingram = More Gus Bus than you'd prob likeMight take a hit w/ Curtis Samuel filling his role w/ more juice
