Have we seen Edmonds carry the workload for the Cardinals before? Well, kind of. Despite Kenyan Drake struggling through much of 2020, there were just two games where Edmonds finished with more than eight carries, which is certainly a concern. The Cardinals went out and signed James Conner in free agency, but he's proven to be incapable of staying healthy with a full workload, and it wasn't a pricey contract, so maybe we see Edmonds in a bigger role. Whatever the case, we know he has the pass-catching role locked down, which has value in itself, as he was a flex-type option most weeks (he was an RB3 or better 62.5 percent of the time). This offense is going to score points, so if Edmonds were to get a slight bump in carries, he could make his way into the RB2 conversation. Draft him as an RB3/flex and hope that's the case. Just know that he's still yet to crack 100 carries in a season.

Chase Edmonds 'ready to run through a damn wall' as team's starting RB

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds says he's "ready to run through a damn wall" as the team's starter.

Fantasy Impact

"It's now or never," Edmonds said this week. "I've finally got my opportunity really and truly in front of me to have a pretty big role in this offense. It's something I've been dying for, praying for, since my first three years in the NFL. It seemed like it would never happen, but I've finally got this opportunity, and I've got to make the most of it." Edmonds' opportunity is a big one as the only moves the Cardinals made to address their backfield this offseason were letting Kenyan Drake walk and signing James Conner. Edmonds is expected to be used in more fantasy-friendly situations while Conner wears down stacked boxes between the tackles. Especially in PPR leagues, Edmonds carries some exciting upside entering 2021.
