Gus Edwards called ‘bell cow’ by GM Joe Hortiz

Chargers GM Joe Hortiz labeled Gus Edwards as a workhorse.

Fantasy Impact

"I think specifically with Gus, I've seen him deal with the adversity of the [ACL] injury two years ago and come back from it," Hortiz said. "Grind, be physical, continue to play the same brand of football he's always played. Really excited to have him. He's the bell cow, the goal line [guy], the finisher." Hortiz added the Chargers want to play a more physical style of football on both sides of the ball and he helps them do that. It will be worth monitoring to see what the Chargers do at the running back position in the NFL Draft next month.

Gus Edwards signs two-year deal with the Chargers

Gus Edwards reached agreement on a two-year deal with the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards now will be reuniting with former Ravens and current Chargers assistant Greg Roman. With Austin Ekeler being a free agent, the Chargers will likely address the backfield again through free agency or the NFL Draft to compliment Edwards.

Gus Edwards scores in win Sunday

Gus Edwards rushed the ball 16 times for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 56-19 blowout win over the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards was clearly the team's top running back on Sunday, totaling 16 carries on the day while nobody else had more than six. He did pretty well with the work that he was given and was able to get in the end zone, but that was watered down a bit by a fumble that he lost. It's unclear what the team plans to change in the backfield in 2023, but it seems likely that he will have some sort of fantasy relevance for the foreseeable future.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards could not find much room on the ground in a tough matchup, but he was able to find the end zone on the goal line. He also took a quick pass for 39 yards through the air. He has a matchup against Miami next week.

Gus Edwards finds the end zone in Week 15

Gus Edwards carried the ball 16 times for 58 yards and a touchdown while adding an 11-yard reception in a 23-7 win over the Jaguars in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Edwards found the end zone on a one-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. The veteran tailback had been losing work to rookie Keaton Mitchell over the past few weeks, but Mitchell suffered a potentially season-ending knee injury in the win. The injury to Mitchell led to Edwards seeing his largest workload since Week 8 against the Cardinals. The Ravens will be adding Melvin Gordon III from the practice squad this week but expect Edwards to remain the team's lead back. Edwards will be on the radar as an RB2 in Week 16 against the 49ers.
