Is it possible that Edwards is another version of Raheem Mostert? Someone who's never heavily used, but one who kills it with every opportunity he gets. He's averaged at least 5.0 yards per carry in each of his three seasons with the Ravens. Now that Mark Ingram is gone, it's possible we see Edwards top his 144-carry career mark from 2020, but the real issue is that he's obsolete in the passing game, totaling just 23 targets over 43 games. He's never caught more than two passes in a game. If J.K. Dobbins were to miss time, Edwards would be a solid RB2 in fantasy, though he'd be a bit more touchdown-dependent than most in that range.

Gus Edwards reaches two-year contract extension with Ravens

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Baltimore Ravens and RB Gus Edwards have come to terms on a two-year, $10 million contract extension.

Fantasy Impact

The deal with keep Edwards in Baltimore through the 2023 campaign. Edwards has been an underrated "real life" runner for a couple of years now, and he's in position to see the most work of his career in '21. The departure of Mark Ingram to the Texans theoretically creates more rushing attempts for both Edwards and sophomore RB J.K. Dobbins, the latter of who is going far earlier in spring fantasy drafts. Dobbins is likely the more talented player, but these ADPs should probably be closer than they are as of now. The receiving usage for both backs will be a storyline to monitor throughout training camp.
