    Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Expects more frequent role in 2019

    Chase Edmonds is confident he'll have a regular role in the Arizona Cardinals offense in his second season, Kyle Odegard of the team's official site reports. "Me and Dave are definitely pushing for (two-back looks)," Edmonds said during OTAs. "It opens up his dynamic ability and mine as well. Whether it's two-back sets or Dave in the slot, me in the slot, it doesn't really matter."Edmonds is referencing backfield mate and 2016 All-Pro David Johnson, who has averaged 94.5 yards from scrimmage per game and scored 42 offensive touchdowns in 49 regular-season appearances. Clearly a bell cow, Johnson's noted ability as a receiver allows him to line up just about anywhere in the formation, whether its out of the backfield, in the slot or outside. This versatility should give Edmonds, a 2018 fourth-round pick, more chances to get on the field this fall. In a dreadful offense last season, he managed 311 scrimmage yards and two TDs on 80 touches, numbers that should increase with a corresponding boost in offensive snaps within new coach Kliff Kingsbury's scheme.

    Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Notches 311 scrimmage yards

    Chase Edmonds recorded 60 carries for 208 yards and two touchdowns while hauling in 20 of his 23 targets for 103 yards across 16 games during the 2018 campaign.The Arizona Cardinals already had an established lead back (David Johnson) prior to the 2018 draft, but it didn't stop general manager Steve Keim from selecting Edmonds in the fourth round with the 134th overall pick. Outside of a two-score performance in a Week 13 upset win over Green Bay, Edmonds was unable to make much of a dent in Johnson's workload. A stagnant offensive scheme partly was to blame, but Edmonds earned double-digit touches just once as a rookie (Week 15 in Atlanta). With Johnson locked into a lucrative extension through the 2021 season, Edmonds likely will need an injury from the former to make much of an impact during his first NFL contract. On the other hand, Arizona's lack of other backfield talent makes Edmonds the top candidate to fill in for Johnson in that scenario.

    Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Garners five touches in loss

    Chase Edmonds ran four times for 20 yards and added a one-yard reception during Sunday's 31-9 loss to the Rams.Edmonds has now recorded at least five touches in five of his last six games, averaging a respectable 4.2 yards per carry during that span. A two-touchdown explosion in Week 13 aside, the rookie has been quiet for much of the season, a byproduct of playing on a woeful offense behind a quality do-it-all back in David Johnson.

    Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Tallies 44 yards in ugly loss

    Chase Edmonds ran for 22 yards on eight carries and added 22 yards on two catches during Sunday's 40-14 loss to Atlanta.Week 13's two-touchdown game in which Arizona shocked Green Bay appears to have been a blip. Arizona has struggled mightily over the past two weeks with Edmonds not providing much production as David Johnson's clear backup. The rookie back did manage to record double-digit touches for the first time this season, but four of those came in the fourth quarter with the Arizona Cardinals down by multiple scores. Maybe, with the season and -- potentially -- this regime on its last legs, Arizona will try to get a better look at what it has in Edmonds. If that ends up being the case, there might be no better opponent than the Rams, who come to town next Sunday ranked as the easiest opponent in the league with 5.1 yards allowed per rush.

    Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Notches 14 yards rushing

    Chase Edmonds had three carries for 14 yards and returned one kickoff for 17 yards during Sunday's 17-3 defeat to the Lions.Acting as the clear No. 2 running back behind David Johnson, Edmonds has been afforded a shade over five touches per game this season. However, outside of a Week 13 outburst in which he totaled 66 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns, Edmonds has averaged a dismal 2.7 YPC with no end-zone visits. In reality, the aforementioned outing was an aberration, meaning anyone who took a chance on the rookie should get used to performances like Sunday's.

    Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Vultures two touchdowns in win

    Chase Edmonds rushed five times for 53 yards and two touchdowns while hauling in both of his targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Packers.Edwards only got five carries to David Johnson's 20, but the rookie scored both of Arizona's touchdowns, much to the chagrin of the embattled early pick's owners. In addition to his 6-yard score in the second quarter and 8-yard touchdown in the third, Edwards also peeled off a 29-yard run. Johnson is still Arizona's primary running back -- as evidenced by the workload distribution -- but Edmonds may have earned himself a few more carries in Week 14 against the Lions and beyond.

    Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Ineffective in loss

    Chase Edmonds ran five times for zero yards during Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Chargers.Edmonds also returned one kick for 13 yards. The rookie fourth-round pick's five carries tied a season high, but he was unable to make any sort of impact with his touches against the Chargers' revitalized run defense. He'll look to bounce back against the Packers in Week 13.

    Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Records five carries

    Chase Edmonds ran for 17 yards on five carries during Sunday's 23-21 loss to Oakland.The five carries tied a season high for Edmonds, though he struggled to make much of them against a Raiders run defense that is among the worst in the NFL. Edmonds, after catching nine passes in his first two games, has been quiet in the passing game as of late, but he gets a somewhat favorable matchup on the ground Sunday against a Chargers defense surrendering 4.6 yards per carry, placing them among the bottom half of the league.

    Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Gets just two carries Week 10

    Chase Edmonds notched two carries for seven yards during Sunday's 26-14 loss at Kansas City.Yet again, Edmonds did little more than spell David Johnson, who accounted for 183 yards from scrimmage and both of the Arizona Cardinals' touchdowns on the afternoon. To make matters worse, Edmonds wasn't the most productive reserve running back. That honor went to T.J. Logan, who hauled in both of his targets for 14 yards on three offensive snaps. Sure, Edmonds handled 17 such snaps, but his outlook appears barren due to the amount of volume taken on by Johnson.

    Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Receives three touches Week 8

    Chase Edmonds took two carries for nine yards and corralled one of two passes for 12 yards during Sunday's 18-15 victory against the 49ers.After going five games without a catch, Edmonds has been involved as a receiver the last two weeks, helping him post exactly 21 yards from scrimmage in back-to-back contests. In the wake of working under a new offensive coordinator, his touch count didn't waver from its typical handful, so the rookie running back isn't much more than a David Johnson handcuff at the moment.
