The Fantasy First Down
The Raiders passing down back now has some competition in Devontae Booker, Theo Riddick and Lynn Bowden. Given his large contract and experience, he's the favourite to play on passing downs and he provides intriguing upside if Josh Jacobs goes down. He's purely a PPR stash.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
Richard is back with the Raiders for another season, but he's more of a thorn in the side for fantasy players than anything else. Richard isn't going to see enough passing volume to be relevant, but he's going to be involved enough in the offense to steal targets from Josh Jacobs. With the addition of Lynn Bowden too, it's unlikely that Richard ever sees enough work to be put into your fantasy lineup this season.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's odd that Richard was re-signed to the Raiders roster when they said they wanted to get Josh Jacobs more involved in the passing game, as Richard is the primary competition. Not just that, but they then drafted running back/wide receiver Lynn Bowden in the second round. However we slice it, Richard isn't likely to top the 43 targets he got in 2019, which makes him a non-factor in fantasy leagues. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Jalen Richard is the prime example of a PPR dependent player. Nearly all of his production comes from catching the ball meaning unless you play in full PPR formats, Richard is going to bring very little value to your team. Regardless, if you draft Josh Jacobs, grabbing Richard late isn't a bad idea.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.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Richard saw a dip in production with Josh Jacobs on the roster, but he'll always be the passing-downs thorn in Jacobs' side. The Raiders gave Richard a two-year extension this offseason, so despite talk of Jacobs' added involvement in the passing game, Richard should continue to hold his role. Unfortunately, that role isn't worth that much, particularly with Lynn Bowden added to the mix. Richard is worth a look in extremely deep PPR formats, nothing more.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.
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)
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
The Raiders are giving Richard a 2-year deal worth $7 million, source said. He gets up to $8 million with $4.6 million fully guaranteed.
