Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said regarding Chase Edmonds "We all feel like he’s starting running back in this league." (Kyle Odegard on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Chase Edmonds was spectacular last season when given a starting role. In his one start he racked up 150 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns on 29 touches. The very next week, Kenyan Drake was brought in from Miami and it muddied the waters. Now, Drake is being drafted as low-end RB1 even though the backfield isn't exactly clear. There's a possibility that Edmonds and Drake can end up a 1a/1b situation rather than a definitive RB1/RB2 split. While Drake should still be drafted around his ECR as the 13th overall running back, this quote and recent news of Edmonds' standout camp should push him up above his current standing at 51st running back.
