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.
