    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Affected by Dobbins pick

    Gus Edwards' role with the team could take a hit after the Baltimore Ravens drafted Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins in the second round, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.Baltimore placed a tender on Edwards in March, so he's presumably still in the team's plans to an extent, but the Dobbins pick is a strong statement that the Ravens are still looking to beef up the run game. Dobbins, a second-rounder, has a three-down skill set and projects to be the direct backup to Mark Ingram. If the Ravens are looking to reduce Ingram's workload to keep him fresh later in the season, Dobbins would get the first crack at the carries. Edwards is still uniquely effective in short-yardage situations; he's notched a positive run rate of at least 88 percent in both of his two seasons. Edwards can still have that role with Dobbins on the roster, but the path to matching his overall carry volume from 2019 just got a lot more treacherous.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Retained for 2020

    Gus Edwards will remain with the Baltimore Ravens after the team placed a contract tender on the exclusive rights free agent.Edwards is thus slated to reprise his role working behind Baltimore's top back, Mark Ingram. Edwards finished up the 2019 campaign with 133 carries for 711 yards and two TDs, to go along with seven catches for 45 yards. As long as Ingram stays healthy, Edwards isn't a strong fantasy lineup option, but the 24-year-old has been productive when given the opportunity, having maintained an average of 5.3 yards per carry over his first two seasons with Baltimore.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Underutilized in shocking loss

    Gus Edwards saw three carries for 20 yards in the divisional-round loss to the Titans.The Baltimore Ravens surprisingly went away from using Edwards against the Titans despite the second-year running back ripping off 6.7 yards per carry. Edwards finished the regular season with 133 carries for 711 yards (5.3 YPC) and two touchdowns, proving to be a reliable option out of the backfield behind Mark Ingram and Lamar Jackson. He is set to hit free agency this offseason, but given his skill set and familiarity with the system, Baltimore will likely attempt to retain him.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Could see bigger role Saturday

    Gus Edwards could be leaned on out of the Baltimore Ravens' backfield Saturday against the Titans if Mark Ingram (calf) is limited or sidelined, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.Edwards was the lead RB option Week 17 when Ingram rested a tight calf, totaling 22 touches for 132 yards from scrimmage. After the Ravens' first-round bye, Ingram didn't practice until Thursday, when he was limited, and received a questionable designation for the upcoming divisional-round matchup. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Ingram is "expected to play," but Edwards is on hand in the event the former's ability to get on the field is at all compromised.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Piles up 132 scrimmage yards

    Gus Edwards carried 21 times for 130 yards and caught one of two targets for two additional yards during Sunday's 28-10 win over the Steelers.Edwards thrived as the team's featured back, rumbling for 6.2 yards per carry en route to a new career high in rushing. Perhaps the only gripe for Edwards' fantasy owners in this one was his inability to find the end zone, as backfield mate Justice Hill vultured a red zone touchdown from Edwards in the second quarter. Still, it was an excellent performance from the second-year back, who could play an expanded role in the team's divisional-round game if Mark Ingram (calf) is still limited by his injury.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Primed for increased workload

    Gus Edwards is in line for more work in Week 17 with Mark Ingram (calf) ruled out against the Steelers.Edwards turned in his second-highest rushing output of the season against the Brown in Week 16, taking 12 carries for 66 yards. Edwards is ripping off 5.2 yards per carry on the season and is now primed to take on the bulk of the rushing work for at least the season finale with Ingram sidelined. He'll likely cede passing-down work to rookie Justice Hill, however.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Effective after Ingram's injury

    Gus Edwards rushed 12 times for 66 yards and caught his lone target for seven yards in Sunday's 31-15 win over the Browns.Edwards took over as the lead back after Mark Ingram exited with a second-half calf injury. While Edwards got 12 carries to Justice Hill's three, it was Hill who scored Baltimore's lone touchdown after Ingram's exit on an 18-yard run. Even if Ingram's injury doesn't prove serious, he'll likely sit out against the Steelers in Week 17 with Baltimore having locked up the No. 1 seed in the AFC, but it's unclear whether coach John Harbaugh will opt to hand Edwards a workhorse role or limit his touches to keep him fresh for the postseason.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Rips off long run in win

    Gus Edwards had five carries for 35 yards in Thursday's 42-21 win over the Jets.Baltimore turned to Edwards to close things out Thursday, giving him three carries in the second half. Edwards has been effective when given opportunities, averaging 5.2 yards per carry, but his workload has been inconsistent. He's only seen double-digit carries twice all season and both of those instances came during blowouts. Edwards also has little involvement in the passing game with just five targets, keeping his weekly floor fairly low. He and the Baltimore Ravens will travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns in Week 16.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Muted role in close game

    Gus Edwards had four carries for 20 yards in Sunday's win over the Bills.The Baltimore Ravens have played close games in each of the past two weeks, and Edwards' playing time has suffered as he's combined for 10 carries for 35 yards in that span. Meanwhile, Mark Ingram and Lamar Jackson have been taking on the bulk of the rushing workload. That said, with Baltimore checking in as two-touchdown favorites for Thursday's game against the Jets, there's a chance Edwards' workload ticks up in Week 15.

    Ravens' Gus Edwards: Limited to 22 yards in win

    Gus Edwards ran for 15 yards on six carries and added a seven-yard catch during Sunday's 20-17 win over the 49ers.Predictably, Edwards' usage and efficiency dropped precipitously when forced to face off against a stout defense in a close game. After beating up on the Texans and Rams in back-to-back blowouts, Edwards, and the Baltimore Ravens offense as a whole, struggled against the 49ers. A similarly tough matchup awaits Sunday in Buffalo, though the Bills have been gashed at times in the run game, surrendering 4.5 yards per rush -- 21st in the league.
