2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
After seeing just 80 total touches in his rookie season while being firmly stuck behind David Johnson on the Cardinals' depth chart, it's hard for many fantasy owners to envision a scenario where Chase Edmonds suddenly takes a significant step forward here in 2019. Johnson should still lead the team in touches out of the backfield by a wide margin, but there is hope for Edmonds.

The obvious path to touches for Edmonds is through an injury to Johnson. We never hope for those things to happen in fantasy, but it is a realistic possibility given the position he plays. However, in addition to simply being a "handcuff," the overall offensive system in Arizona should benefit Edmonds in terms of touches.

The Cardinals ran just 56.4 plays per game in 2018 - second-fewest in the NFL. The massive change in philosophy will almost certainly mean a significant step forward in that number. It would not be surprising at all to see the Cardinals move into the top 10 in plays per game, which would put them closer to the 65 play per game range. If they're effective, there's even a possibility that they finish the season as the highest-paced offense, which would mean something like 70 or more plays per game. That simply increase in pace could mean 200 or more total offensive plays for the Cardinals this season than what we saw in 2018. Certainly the majority of those plays will be passes, but that could still mean something like 70 to 80 additional running plays - and that doesn't even account for the additional pass plays to running backs. While Johnson is certainly the workhorse, he already finished in the top five with over 300 total touches in 2018 despite the snail-paced offense that the Cardinals were running. Sure, he'll touch the ball a bit more if he stays healthy this year, but he's not suddenly going to get almost 400 touches. So where do those additional touches go? You guessed it - Chase Edmonds.

Edmonds is still a late-round flier in standard leagues, but he does have the potential for some weekly contributions even if Johnson remains healthy all season. If he doesn't, however, Edmonds would almost certainly instantly become one of the hottest waiver wire adds in fantasy.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury David Johnson expected to play
Listed as questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 19, 11:47 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals’ RB David Johnson, listed as questionable for today’s game against the Giants due to an ankle injury, is expected to play, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Head coach Kliff Kingsbury made waves on Friday when he said that if the game were today, Johnson wouldn't play, but it sounds like it's all systems go for DJ in a prime matchup against the Giants. Chase Edmonds is a low-end flex option.


Injury David Johnson likely to play on Sunday
Gametime decision
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 11, 4:00 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Word is he's likely to play on Sunday but check back because if you start him in fantasy at 1p and then he doesn't play at 4p you'll be tweeting all kinds of vulgar things to me and then I'll feel really bad. I get it. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like David Johnson's back was OK today, but Sunday could be a different story. Fantasy owners should follow this situation closely as both Johnson and Chase Edmonds will be in play against a struggling Falcons defense.


Injury Christian Kirk practices Wednesday
David Johnson works with trainers
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 9, 1:42 pm

Arizona Cardinals
During open portion of Cardinals' practice today, WR Christian Kirk, CB Tramaine Brock and WR Damiere Byrd were participating. Looked like veteran days off for WR Larry Fitzgerald, DT Corey Peters and OLB Terrell Suggs. RB David Johnson was working with trainers on the side. (Bob McManaman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kirk and Byrd are expected to play this week in a juicy matchups against the Falcons defense. David Johnson's availability will be key for fantasy owners as backup Chase Edmonds could become a fantasy factor if Johnson (back) isn't able to suit up.


Injury David Johnson could miss Week 6?
Back tightness sidelined him for a bit in Week 5
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 7, 4:30 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Kingsbury said David Johnson will be monitored all week with his back tightness. Would not rule out that Johnson could miss Falcons game. Have to see how week goes. (AZcardinals.com - Darren Urban)

FFToday's Take: Johnson was able to finish the game, so it doesn't seem like this is going to be that big of a deal. With that said, any back issue is worth keeping an eye on. Johnson's absence would thrust Chase Edmonds into low-end RB1 territory in Week 6 against an Atlanta defense that has actually kept running backs somewhat in check since Week 1 but is giving up a ton of volume.
