Edwards rushed eight times for 23 yards in the Ravens' 23-17 wild-card loss to the Chargers on Sunday. With a nearly non-existent role in the passing game thus far in his young career, Edwards has seen his fantasy production exceedingly dependent on his success, or lack thereof, on the ground. Thus, when the running game is neutralized by game script, so too is Edwards, as was clearly the case Sunday. It was a disappointing finish for the Rutgers product, who certainly made a noticeable impact during the stretch run of the regular season with a trio of 100-yard efforts and another two over 80 in the last seven games. He'll look to pick up where he left off in 2019 while likely sharing a fair amount of touches with backfield mate Kenneth Dixon.
Edwards carried the ball 12 times for 76 yards in Sunday's 26-24 win over the Browns. Edwards was limited to 12 touches but made the most of the opportunity by averaging 6.3 yards per carry. The bulk of his yardage came on three carries that went for 24, 18 and 12 yards respectively, though he was held relatively quiet otherwise. Edwards ends the season with 718 rushing yards, with only Lamar Jackson surpassing him for the team lead even though he was only on the active roster beginning in Week 6. Once the playoffs have concluded, Edwards will enter the offseason as an Exclusive Rights Free Agent, meaning he'll likely be with the team again. However, his role will be uncertain with Lamar Jackson, Kenneth Dixon, and potentially Alex Collins all vying for carries.
Edwards rushed 14 times for 92 yards and added 13 receiving yards by catching his lone target in Saturday's 22-10 win over the Chargers. Edwards continues to thrive as the lead back under Lamar Jackson's iteration of the Ravens' offense. The threat of a mobile quarterback has opened up running lanes and allowed the undrafted rookie to produce at least 100 all-purpose yards in four out of the last six contests. Edwards is a non-factor in the passing game (Saturday's catch was his first since becoming starter), but his healthy production on the ground combined with a consistent role makes him start-worthy in almost any format. The Browns and their 24th-ranked rush defense are on tap for Week 17.
Edwards (ankle) wasn't listed Wednesday on the Ravens' initial injury report for Week 14. Edwards has been tending to an ankle issue of late, but he logged 21 carries for 82 yards in a Week 13 win over the Falcons. His exclusion from the injury report indicates that he escaped that contest without any setbacks with his ankle, which should set him to head the Baltimore backfield again Sunday versus the Chiefs. He'll take aim at a Kansas City defense that has allowed an average of 122 rushing yards per game to date.
Edwards is continuing to receive treatment for a lingering ankle injury but believes he'll be available for Sunday's game at Kansas City, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. The Ravens swapped out Kenneth Dixon (knee) for Alex Collins (foot) as residents of injured reserve, but Edwards remained the lead runner in this backfield Week 13 in Atlanta. Over his three impressive performances in a row, Edwards has recorded 61 carries for 315 yards and one touchdown. However, he was seen limping off the field near the end of Sunday's game, increasing the likelihood that he will be included on the injury report this week. Wednesday's version will reveal Edwards' level of practice participation.
