2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Chase Edmonds finished 2020 with a career high in rushing attempts (97) and rushing yards (448), but the real story was that he smashed career highs in the passing game with targets (67), receptions (53), receiving yards (402) and receiving touchdowns (4). Most Edmonds supporters have always suggested that he should be used more often in the passing game, but we finally got to see it and he certainly did not disappoint.

In addition to being a contributor in the Cardinals' committee backfield, Edmonds was impressive in the two games he actually started, compiling 233 total yards with 10 receptions. It was still an overall lackluster fantasy season for Edmonds, however, as he was stuck behind Kenyan Drake, especially in the red zone where he finished with just one goal line carry. Drake, meanwhile, finished with the second-most goal line carries in the entire league.

The offseason moves did seem to initially go in Edmonds' favor as the Cardinals moved on from Drake, who they had originally traded for midway through the 2019 season. This seemed to imply that Arizona would be looking for Edmonds to be the new workhorse back. However, the acquisition of former Steelers starter James Conner really threw a wrench into that equation.

Furthering the concerns about Edmonds is the reality that the Cardinals did make significant investments into their passing game. They finished sixth in the NFL in team run plays per game, but will almost certainly look to pass more often this season.

On the bright side, Arizona did also make moves along their offensive line, including adding former Jets guard Brian Winters, who started all 16 games for the Bills in 2020. They also signed Rodney Hudson, who's spent the last six years anchoring one of the league's most under-the-radar high-end offensive lines for the Raiders.

Edmonds' ceiling is likely around 210 to 220 total touches, but a more realistic number is probably closer to 170 to 190 touches, which equates to around 10 touches per game. That's enough to be a viable RB3/Flex option in PPR formats, but it's probably not enough that we should be confident in him delivering more than that without injuries to Conner and perhaps other backs on the roster.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury James Conner, Chase Edmonds gameday decisions
Edmonds says he's playing
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jan 13, 1:16 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Listening to Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds just now leads me to believe both he and RB James Conner will be ready to go Monday night against the Rams. Both players have been banged up. (Bob McManaman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Speaking to the media, HC Kliff Kingsbury said Conner (ribs) and Edmonds (ribs, toe) will be gameday decisions but Edmonds said he would be good to go. It's likely Conner will be playing as well but its difficult to tell at this point if he will be limited. Both will be risky Flex plays in the Wildcard Round of the fantasy playoffs.


Injury Chase Edmonds ruled Out for Week 18
Toe, rib injuries for Edmonds
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 7, 1:26 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said RB Chase Edmonds (toe/ribs), CB Marco Wilson (shoulder) and DL Jordan Phillips (knee) will not play Sunday vs. Seahawks. (Bob McManaman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Edmonds missed practice all week and will not suit up against Seattle. James Conner has missed the last two games with an ankle injury and was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday. It remains to be seen how much he will play this week. He should not be counted on for a full workload. We may see Jonathan Ward and Eno Benjamin this week.


Injury James Conner a gametime decision
Optimism the RB will play
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jan 2, 8:00 am

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals view James Conner (heel) as a game-time decision vs. Cowboys but there's optimism the RB will play, per @RapSheet (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Cardinals and Cowboys play late this afternoon so we'll have to wait midway through the early games before we find out Conner's status for certain. Chase Edmonds would be an easy RB1 if Conner sits.


Injury James Conner expects to play in Week 16
RB: Heel injury a pain management issue
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 23, 11:55 pm

Arizona Cardinals
James Conner said today that he’s confident he’ll play Saturday against the Colts. He told me it’ll all come down to pain management in his heel. He added that his ankle is fine. (ESPN - Josh Weinfuss)

FFToday's Take: Conner was listed as questionable on the final injury report after failing to practice all week. It sounds as if fantasy managers can plan on Conner playing through the pain, but there is also the distinct possibility Arizona won't know his status for sure until he warms up for Saturday night's showdown against the Colts. If he plays, he will be a dicey RB2 option that comes with the risk of leaving the game at any time. If he sits, Chase Edmonds would likely get enough work to serve as a solid RB2 option.


Injury James Conner expected to play
Chase Edmonds returns
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 18, 11:30 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals’ RB James Conner, listed as questionable for Sunday due to an ankle injury, is expected to play vs. the Lions, per source. Arizona now will have Conner and Chase Edmonds, fresh off IR, available on its DeAndre-Hopkinsless offense. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Edmonds back and Conner less than 100 percent the question is how limited will Conner be against the Lions. He second in rushing TDs (14) behind Jonathan Taylor (17) and has scored 9 TDs in the last seven weeks.


Injury High ankle sprain for Chase Edmonds?
MRI today, could land on IR soon
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 8, 9:56 am

Arizona Cardinals
#AZCardinals RB Chase Edmonds is feared to have suffered a high-ankle sprain, source said, bringing a stint on short-term IR into play if today’s MRI confirms. He hurt his ankle on the 1st play, and high-ankle is worst-case. Generally, these injuries knock players out 4-6 weeks. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Edmonds is heading for the short-term Injured Reserve. James Conner did damage in Week 9 (21 carries, 96 yds, 2 TDs; 5 catches, 77 yds, 1 TD) with Edmonds out most of the day. Eno Benjamin also saw some action (9 carries, 39 yds). Edmonds owners should plan to be without his services for the near term.
