Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Edmonds has now gone 95 touches so far this season without finding the end zone. He has nine rush attempts inside the 20, but it has translated to just 23 yards and no touchdowns. From a talent perspective, Edmonds is among the best in the NFL with the ball in his hands. He's coming off of a game where he posted a 140 Elusiveness Rating from Pro Football Focus, which was top-4 on the week, but it's not meaning much from a fantasy perspective if he's not delivering touchdowns. Edmonds will remain a valuable low-end RB2 moving forward for fantasy rosters, but we know at this point that the upside just isn't there with him. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Edmonds has averaged only 6.3 fantasy points over his last 3 games, he is more of a flex option with James Conner taking so much of the goal line work.Cooks is only averaging 7.3 fantasy points over his last four games and he draws a Rams D that is 13th against fantasy wide receivers. Cooks is a low-upside WR3.
