Gus Edwards is a true underdog story - a former undrafted free agent who owns a top-5 PFF rushing grade and yards per carry (5.1) since 2018. But with coming off a torn ACL and J.K. Dobbins entrenched as the 1A starter in the Ravens backfield, is the efficient GusBu even worth the squeezer in fantasy football?

Consider in his best season, 2021, Edwards finished RB35 in 0.5 PPR scoring. That low-end RB3 upside is gone now. He can't be viewed as much of anything but a hand-cuff to Dobbins, with hopes that he can also occasionally find the end zone to make up for a lack of pass-game work. Because ten touches per game in the form of carries is going to do literally nothing to help your fantasy lineup. Do not buy into the fallacy that Edwards owns "stand-alone value."

8/2: Team worried more about Gus than Dobbins to begin the year. As the more replaceable player (is he really that much better than Mke Davis or rookie Tyler Badie?), I am suddenly very worried about Gus.

5/15: Big draft day winner with the team making minimal investment into the position, while also beefing up the line and suggesting a run-obsessed 2022 attack
