RB - ARI
Week 2 Outlook
Chase Edmonds carried the ball six times for 26 yards, while also catching three passes for 19 yards and a touchdown on five targets.
Edmonds played second-fiddle to Kenyan Drake in the Cardinal backfield, but still ended up seeing a solid number of snaps. He was used primarily in the passing game, and was able to find the endzone to cap off a decent day. Edmonds could have some standalone flex value, but offers upside as one of the more valuable handcuffs in the league should Drake suffer an injury. Next up for Edmonds and the Cardinals is a matchup with the Washington Football Team in Week 2.
Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said regarding Chase Edmonds "We all feel like he’s starting running back in this league."
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.
Chase Edmonds didn't receive a touch in Week 15.
Kenyan Drake is the lead back with David Johnson backing him up at the moment. Edmonds can be safely dropped in re-draft fantasy leagues.
Chase Edmonds rushed once for a gain of nine in Week 14.
He didn't catch any passes but was targeted twice. Edmonds is clearly working behind both Kenyan Drake and David Johnson right now. He doesn't have any fantasy value entering Week 15.
Chase Edmonds didn't receive a touch in the Cardinals' Week 13 loss to the Rams.
Edmonds was healthy for the first time in over a month. However, Kenyan Drake received 15 touches and David Johnson got six. Edmonds doesn't need to be owned in 10-team leagues right now.
