Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds wasn't able to get much going with his minimal workload against the Detroit Lions in Week 3. Edmonds carried the ball three times for 13 yards and caught both of his targets for 21 yards. The team's No. 1 back Kenyan Drake received 18 carries in the game, leading the backfield. Edmonds has now struggled to make a mark on the stat sheet for two straight weeks. He compiled just 13 yards from scrimmage last week. He's still someone worth owning in deep leagues. If Drake were to go down, he instantly becomes a sure thing RB2. Yet even with Drake in the picture, Edmonds could still have PPR value if he starts to make more of his opportunities.
Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds has been the team's only running back to see the field this year apart from starter Kenyan Drake. He's played in 35% of the team's offensive snaps, while Drake has played in 68%. Edmonds has been targeted nine times in the passing game, while Drake has been targeted four times. Apart from a Week 1 receiving touchdown, Edmonds hasn't made much of a mark on the stat sheet this year, but that could change soon, potentially as soon as Week 3 in a favorable matchup against the Detroit Lions. Drake will see somewhere around 20 touches in the game while Edmonds might see around 10. Edmonds is a desperation start this week, but you could do worse if you're in a pinch in a deep PPR league.
Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds gave a nice spark to the offense in Week 1, but he was unable to make much of an impact in Week 2. Edmonds carried the ball three times this week and gained just four yards. In the passing game, he was targeted four times and came down with three receptions for nine yards. He also fumbled, but it was recovered by the Cardinals. It was his second fumble of the year. Edmonds is going to be involved in this offense regularly and should typically deliver more production than this. He's the clear No. 2 behind Kenyan Drake, but has been more involved than Drake in the passing game so far, which is promising. He's a worthwhile stash in deep leagues, especially PPR, but in shallow leagues, he can remain on waivers.
Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds was targeted five times in the passing game in Week 1, which was tied for second on the team with Larry Fitzgerald. He caught three of those five targets for 19 yards and a touchdown while also rushing the ball six times for 26 yards in the game. The Cardinals are favored by about a touchdown in their upcoming Week 2 matchup against the Washington Football Team. Expect both Edmonds and the team's primary ball-carrier Kenyan Drake to play big roles. Edmonds should see around 10 total touches in the game, which gives him solid upside as a flex or RB3 in PPR leagues. In non-PPR, his upside is a bit limited and he might need another touchdown in order to come through for you.
Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds saw a good amount of action in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers. Edmonds carried the ball six times for 26 yards and caught three of five targets for 19 yards and a touchdown. While he was out-touched by the team's lead back Kenyan Drake 18 to nine, Edmonds was more efficient with his touches, averaging 4.3 yards on the ground and 6.3 yards per reception, compared with 3.8 and 2.5, respectively, for Drake. Edmonds should continue to see somewhere around ten touches per week in a high-functioning offense. He should be owned in just about all fantasy leagues and is a potential flex option in PPR leagues going forward.
Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds should certainly have a role in the Cardinals offense this year, but it's hard to know just how big of a role that will be at this point. The team's primary running back Kenyan Drake had been dealing with a minor foot injury in recent weeks but is not listed on the team's injury report and should be expected to handle a full workload in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers. Edmonds is a great stash in deep leagues. He could have value in PPR leagues if he's active in the passing game and he has humongous upside if Drake were to go down. But this week, it's best to just monitor the situation and see how big of a role he gets off the bat.
Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds was extremely effective in limited work last year. He averaged 5.1 yards per carry on 60 carries and 8.8 yards per reception on 12 receptions. While he's the clear No. 2 running back behind Kenyan Drake, Edmonds should still have plenty of opportunities to make plays this year, given the fact that the team doesn't have any proven NFL running backs behind their top two. Fantasy owners in deep PPR leagues should take a look at Edmonds and consider him with a late pick. Edmonds could be involved enough that he has flex appeal on his own, and if Drake goes down, he could be a stud.
Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds is the clear No. 2 behind Kenyan Drake on the offense, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury certainly won't be discluding Edmonds from the offense's plans this year. "When he had his opportunities, he shined," Kingsbury said, about the third-year running back Edmonds. Last year, Edmonds averaged 5.1 yards per carry, up from 3.5 his rookie year. He had a monstrous game in Week 7 against the Giants, rushing for 126 yards and three touchdowns on 27 carries. Kingsbury clearly trusts Edmonds and is likely to find ways he can make plays for the team. Drake is still in position to shine, but Edmonds might have some sneaky value in deep leagues and in PPR.
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds could be a starting running back in the NFL, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury Wednesday, Aug. 19.
Fantasy Spin: Edmonds rushed for 303 yards and four touchdowns while adding 12 receptions for another 105 yards and a touchdown over two starts and 13 total games played in 2019. RB Kenyan Drake was brought back this offseason to be the starter, but Edmonds is the next best option on the depth chart. He's a good depth or handcuff target late in drafts.
Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray worked out with a number of his teammates Monday, June 29. WR DeAndre Hopkins, WR Christian Kirk, RB Kenyan Drake, RB Chase Edmonds and TE Maxx Williams are among the players participating in the workout.
Fantasy Spin: Murray has not been able to work out with his teammates this offseason, so this workout allows him to build chemistry with Hopkins and the other offensive players. He has the chance to be part of one of the top offenses in the NFL in 2020 and should be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback.
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds averaged 5.1 yards per rushing attempt, 2.95 yards after contact and sported a 15 percent explosive run rate (per Pro Football Focus) - all team-best marks among running backs - on 60 carries in 2019. He also forced a missed tackle on 13.3 percent of his carries - good for on the team second behind Kenyan Drake's 17 percent forced missed tackle rate.
Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds had 20 rushes of 15-plus mph on just 59 carries last year, resulting in the highest percentage of explosive runs (minimum of 50 rushes) in the entire league. Edmonds had 303 rushing yards and four touchdowns in 13 games (two starts) last year for the Cardinals. As long as Kenyan Drake is healthy as the lead back, Edmonds probably won't see more than a handful of touches per game, though. The 24-year-old makes for a great handcuff for Drake owners, and he could have tremendous value in Arizona's rising offense if Drake were to go down with an injury at any point.
Arizona Cardinals RB Eno Benjamin is not expected to receive many offensive snaps during his rookie season since he is behind RBs Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds on the depth chart.
Fantasy Spin: Benjamin probably will receive a handful of touches early in the season but could earn a bigger role later in the season if he is productive. Fantasy players can avoid him during their drafts but should keep an eye on him during the season.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said the third running back spot behind RB Kenyan Drake and RB Chase Edmonds may still be open following the re-signing of RB D.J. Foster. 'We think he has a good skill set,' Kingsbury said in regard to Foster, 'but that's an area we'd like to have three that you feel like we could roll through and not lose much.'
Fantasy Spin: Drake is the clear fantasy target from the Cardinals' backfield, and he'll be a strong RB2 as the depth chart currently stands. The selection of a top-end rookie back within the first three rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft could take away from Drake's appeal in re-draft leagues, and the younger option would likely become the superior dynasty target.
Arizona Cardinals RBs Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds have head coach Kliff Kingsbury 'really excited' about the first two spots on the depth chart, but Kingsbury told a group of reporters in a videoconference on Tuesday, April 7, that he'd like to have three running backs 'that we feel like we could roll through and not lose much.'
Fantasy Spin: While this could be an indication Kingsbury wants to use a three-man committee, it's more than likely a realization that he wants to be deep at a position that was ravaged by injuries in 2019. Drake did more than enough after arriving via trade at midseason to warrant at least 15 touches per week and should be considered a low-end RB1 for fantasy purposes. Edmonds also performed well before getting hurt and should be considered Drake's high-upside handcuff.
