2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
After spending his first two seasons stuck behind David Johnson, Chase Edmonds is still second in the Cardinals backfield this season behind Kenyan Drake. Drake had some truly gigantic fantasy performances down the stretch and there's no question that he deserves to be valued highly in drafts, but fantasy owners might just be sleeping on Edmonds.

He saw the field only sparingly for the first few weeks of the 2019 season, but Edmonds quietly began to sneak onto the field a bit more in the weeks leading up to Johnson's injury. Then Edmonds proceeded to absolutely crush in his one starting opportunity, as he accumulated 150 total yards and three touchdowns on 29 total touches. Fantasy owners were ecstatic that they might have struck gold off the waiver wire, but the ride didn't last long as Edmonds unfortunately suffered a hamstring injury that would keep him off the field for three weeks. By the time he returned, the Cardinals had traded for Kenyan Drake who had taken over the backfield and Edmonds simply didn't look like the same player in the limited opportunities he did get to spell Drake down the stretch.

The Cardinals did draft Eno Benjamin who himself was a serious weapon out of the backfield at Arizona State, but Edmonds appears to be entrenched as at least the primary backup for Drake. He may even see between eight to 12 touches per week when Drake is healthy, given that the Cardinals run a fast-paced offense that regularly requires them to give breathers to their starters.

Now healthy after a full offseason, Edmonds could have fantasy-viable weeks even if Drake remains healthy as the starter. He's a solid contributor in the passing game and he's shown an ability to find the end zone near the goal line. He also looks to be one of the few late-round handcuff-type running backs who has real upside to provide RB1 weeks in the case that he does become the starter.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Christian Kirk lands on COVID-19 list
Arizona limping into Week 17
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jan 2, 11:30 pm

Arizona Cardinals
We have placed WR Christian Kirk on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. (Arizona Cardinals on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Kirk down, Kyler Murray nursing a leg injury and Chase Edmonds battling a hip issue the Cardinals will be at less than 100 percent when the face the Rams in Week 17. Edmonds is a gametime decision but their is optimism he will play. The Rams will be without Cooper Kupp and Jared Goff.


Injury Gametime decision for Chase Edmonds, Larry Fitzgerald
Hip injury for Edmonds
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 1, 2:30 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Kingsbury said it'll be game-day decisions whether RB Chase Edmonds and WR Larry Fitzgerald will play Sunday. S Budda Baker is "sore" but Kingsbury is hopeful he will play. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Both missed practice on Friday and haven't practiced all week making them on the wrong side of questionable. If Edmonds misses, this will lock Kenyan Drake into a workhorse role against the Rams. Los Angeles has done well against running backs this season allowing the fifth fewest fantasy points to the position.


Injury Chase Edmonds expected to play
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 20, 7:45 am

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals’ RB Chase Edmonds, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a sprained ankle, plans to play against the Eagles, though he does want to first test it in pre-game warmups, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ian Rapoport noted that Edmonds could have a reduced role depending on how he feels. It might be wise to leave Edmonds on your bench this week if you have equal options. The Eagles have been relatively stingy against running backs this season.


Injury Cardinals sound optimistic on Kenyan Drake
Gametime decision
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 14, 11:30 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals’ RB Kenyan Drake, listed as questionable due for Sunday to an ankle injury, has a good chance to play vs. the Bills, per source. Arizona sounds optimistic and hopeful about his availability, but the Cardinals want to test Drake in pre-game warmups and see how he feels. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Positive signs for Drake but this muddies the waters for Chase Edmonds owners. Hopefully we'll get further clarification on Drake's status before lock of the early games on Sunday.


Injury Kenyan Drake limited Friday, listed as Questionable
Gametime decision
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 13, 3:15 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Kingsbury said he feels strong that S Budda Baker will play Sunday but they do want to run him around pregame to make sure. RB Kenyan Drake must show on game day he's able to do all the things he normally would, otherwise he will be inactive. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Sounds like Drake will be a gametime decision which is problematic for fantasy owners since Arizona and Buffalo play in the late-window on Sunday afternoon. Chase Edmonds received 28 touches with Drake out in Week 9.


Injury Kenyan Drake out for Week 9
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 6, 3:51 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Kingsbury made it sound like, because D.J. Foster knows the offense so well, he will be the likely backup running back to Chase Edmonds. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Earlier in the week, Arizona stated that Kenyan Drake's ankle injury wasn't as bad as first thought. However, he will miss Week 9. Chase Edmonds is locked in as a RB1 this week against the Dolphins.


Injury Injury to Kenyan Drake not as bad as first thought
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 2, 9:25 am

Arizona Cardinals
On a more positive note, Kingsbury said the injury to RB Kenyan Drake wasn't as bad as first feared. He called Drake "day to day" although he wasn't sure that meant playing this week. Said Cards and Drake were "very fortunate" from what it first looked like. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We were expecting a multi-week absence from Drake but it sounds like he may be able to return in Week 10 against the Bills. Assuming Drake sits in Week 9, Chase Edmonds against the Dolphins is shaping up to be one of the better running back plays of the week.
