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 says he's playing Sunday
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 6, 3:43 pm

Arizona Cardinals
RB David Johnson (ankle) on his availability for Sunday against the Buccaneers: "I'm definitely playing. I'm good, ready to go." (Kyle Odegard on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Last time we saw David Johnson on the field, it was Week 7 for one play against the Giants. It remains to be seen how much playing time he'll cede to newly acquired Kenyan Drake who popped off for 162 total yards and 1 TD in Week 9 against the 49ers. With Chase Edmonds expected to be sidelined, DJ and Drake should handle all of the RB duties.


Injury Chase Edmonds out, expect RBBC for Cardinals
Avoid Cardinals RBs
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 30, 3:48 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Chase Edmonds won’t play. David Johnson is “still working through it,” Kingsbury said. Regardless it’ll be “running back by committee.” Alfred Morris will be active. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It doesn't sounds like DJ (ankle) is going to play leaving newly acquired Kenyan Drake, Zach Zenner and Alfred Morris to handle the rushing duties in Week 9 against the 49ers. This is a good spot to avoid for fantasy owners.


Miami trades Kenyan Drake to Arizona
MIA receives conditional 2020 draft pick
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 28, 9:58 am

Miami Dolphins
Trade: Arizona has reached agreement in principle to trade a conditional 2020 draft pick to Miami for RB Kenyan Drake, league sources tell ESPN. Arizona lost RB Chase Edmonds to a hamstring injury Sunday, already had RB David Johnson dealing with an ankle injury that is expected to sideline him this week and now will add RB Kenyan Drake, who could be in line for significant work Thursday night vs. San Francisco. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With the Cardinals banged up at running back, Drake could get thrown right into the fire against the stout 49ers defense on Thursday night. This move isn't a good sign for the health of David Johnson or Chase Edmonds. This transaction also elevates Mark Walton in Miami although his team situation caps his value as a weekly Flex play.


Injury Chase Edmonds iffy for Thursday night
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 28, 7:00 am

Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said there's "definitely concern" that running back Chase Edmonds might not play Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers after leaving Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints with a hamstring injury. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With David Johnson (ankle,back) not expected to play, the Cardinals may be down to Alfred Morris and Zach Zenner at running back against the 49ers. Not good. Zenner is more likely to be involved in the passing game, making him the best fantasy RB option in Week 9.
