RB - ARI - Questionable
Week 17 Outlook
Myles Simmons with Pro Football Talk is reporting that Cardinal's head coach Kliff Kingsbury has said that he is confident that Chase Edmonds can be the team's lead back.
With Kenyan Drake set to become a free agent, there is a lot of uncertainty in the Arizona backfield. While rumors regarding Chris Carson and Aaron Jones have both been tied to the Cardinals, Kingsbury's endorsement toward Edmonds is great to see for those rostering him in dynasty leagues. Still, coachspeak and what the team actually does rarely align so be sure to keep an eye on the Cardinals' offseason transactions before declaring Edmonds the Week 1 starter.
Chase Edmonds (hip) will play in Week 17's matchup against the Rams.
Edmonds comes into this matchup against a stout Rams defense as a gametime decision, so it’s tough to trust him in this matchup. We’ve seen Kliff Kingsbury rest active players in the past, so Edmonds is a risky start this week. In a must-win game, they may try to get their electric running back some plays but the risk is too high to justify confidently starting him.
Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) will be a game-time decision for Sunday’s Week 17 contest against the Rams.
Edmonds was unable to practice this week and is a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the Rams. He exited Week 16’s loss to the 49ers early with a hip injury and is considered day-to-day. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor his status throughout the weekend. If Edmonds is unable to suit up on Sunday, Kenyan Drake would be in line for a heavy workload in Week 17.
Chase Edmonds (hip) didn't receive a carry and caught 2-of-3 targets for eight yards in a 20-12 loss to the 49ers in Week 16.
Edmonds injured himself in the 2nd quarter and wasn't able to make it back to the game. He finished without a carry and with three targets. It's unknown at this point if he'll be able to play in Week 17 against the Rams, but consider him questionable for that game.
Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) is questionable to return in Week 16 against the 49ers.
We’ll update Edmonds’ status once the team provides more information. He caught two passes for eight yards before departing.
