Player Outlook
Edmonds was one of the first running backs to sign in free agency, but the fact that the Dolphins also added Raheem Mostert and Sony Michel suggests Edmonds will remain in a committee. As such, he should be drafted as a flex, or borderline No. 2 running back no earlier than Round 6. The expectation should be that Edmonds sees eight to 10 carries per game and catches three or four passes. He does have upside beyond that if injuries or ineffectiveness from the other two gives him a shot at a larger role.

  • Dolphins' Chase Edmonds: Backfield competition still ongoing

    Coach Mike McDaniel said Sunday that the Dolphins' running back competition remains "fierce" and declined to name Edmonds, or any other player, the starter yet, David Furones of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. McDaniel said he doesn't "want to limit an opportunity by having a preconceived notion," noting that a player like Raheem Mostert having familiarity with the scheme may not provide an advantage in the training camp competition. On the other hand, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports that McDaniel lauded Edmond's "cerebral approach," one which he called "unique" among Miami's backfield. "He knows every receiver assignment and he's understanding of the blocking schemes and all that," McDaniel said. "But more so, he has a combination of feel to apply abstract coaching points." Those comments speak to Edmond's three-down versatility, which, when combined with the fact that he signed a two-year, $12.1 million contract with the Dolphins, still appears to make him the favorite to lead what could be a multi-headed rushing attack.

  • Dolphins' Chase Edmonds: Favorite for lead role

    Edmonds remains the favorite to handle the majority of touches among Miami's backfield, Mike Masala of USA Today reports. The Dolphins likely will work in Raheem Mostert (knee) and Sony Michel on a weekly basis, too, while Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed remain available as depth options. However, Edmonds' two-year, $12.1 million contract is far and away the largest monetary commitment given out by Miami within the running back room, and he boasts enough versatility to play all three downs. In fact, the 26-year-old's skill set and track record of efficiency makes him an ideal fit for coach Mike McDaniel's zone rushing scheme, at least on paper. If Edmonds indeed can emerge as a No. 1 option rather than a member of a backfield by committee, he could enjoy a true fantasy breakout during the 2022 campaign.

  • Dolphins' Chase Edmonds: Gets competition for touches

    Edmonds has been joined by Raheem Mostert (knee) atop Miami's backfield depth chart, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports. Edmonds and Mostert, who is recovering from knee surgery but expected to be ready for Week 1, look set to helm the Dolphins' revamped rushing game. New coach Mike McDaniel helped craft a prolific zone rushing attack in San Francisco, a scheme which Mostert has already proven himself in and which Edmonds appears perfect for, but it's uncertain whether each player's workload will be consistent. If the Dolphins employ a committee approach, or ride the hot hand on a game-by-game basis, fantasy managers may have difficulty extracting predictable production. Incumbents Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed also remain in the building, but appear more suited for depth roles under the new coaching staff.

  • Dolphins' Chase Edmonds: Signing with Dolphins

    The Dolphins and Edmonds have agreed to terms on a two-year deal, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per the report, Edmonds' deal is for $12.6 million and includes $6.1 million guaranteed. While working in a complementary role alongside James Conner with the Cardinals last season, Edmonds logged 116 carries for 592 yards and two TDs and added 43 catches for 311 yards in 12 games. With Miami, the 25-year-old has a chance to head his new team's backfield and thus appears poised to see an uptick in touches and, in turn, fantasy relevance in 2022. Other running backs the Dolphins currently have under contract are Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed and Gerrid Doaks.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Quiet end to campaign

    Edmonds rushed eight times for 28 yards and failed to catch his only target in Monday night's 34-11 wild-card round loss to the Rams. Edmonds played despite dealing with rib and toe injuries recently, alternating time with fellow banged-up tailback James Conner (ribs) and Eno Benjamin. Although Edmonds led the team in rushes and yards on the ground, his totals were nothing special, and it was Conner who scored Arizona's lone touchdown with a two-yard rush during the third quarter. Despite missing five games, Edmonds was a strong complement to Conner during the regular season, posting career highs in carries (116) and rushing yards (592) while scoring twice. He also caught 43 of 53 targets for 311 yards. After that uptick in production, the 2018 fourth-rounder is slated to enter free agency this offseason, making it unclear whether his career will continue with the Cardinals or not.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: To vie with Conner for touches

    Edmonds (ribs/toe) will be joined by James Conner (ribs) in the Cardinals backfield for Monday's wild-card game against the Rams, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. While Edmonds emerged from prep for this contest without a designation after being listed as limited, limited and full on practice reports, Conner was questionable after managing just one capped session Saturday. That activity was enough for Conner to get the all clear for Monday's game, but the breakdown of reps between himself and Edmonds is up in the air. In 10 games when both were available this season, Edmonds was a close second to Conner in terms of touches (135 versus 112). Having said that, Edmonds seems to be healthier than Conner, so the former could get the upper hand in snap count.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Ready for playoff opener

    Edmonds (ribs/toe) doesn't have a designation for Monday's wild-card game at the Rams, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. After sitting out the Cardinals' Week 18 loss to the Seahawks due to rib and toe issues, Edmonds practiced Thursday through Saturday and even capped the week with a full session. Meanwhile, James Conner (ribs) and Jonathan Ward (knee) followed DNP/DNP/LP regimens and have been deemed questionable to suit up Monday. Conner's status is of particular interest for Edmonds' eventual workload. A decision on Conner won't be official until 90 minutes before an 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, but if he's absent Edmonds would be poised for most of the backfield reps. When Conner missed Weeks 17 and 18 with a heel injury, Edmonds reeled off 209 yards from scrimmage and one TD on 34 rushes and 13 catches (on 15 targets).

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Remains limited at practice

    Edmonds (ribs) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Though Edmonds wasn't able to take a step forward in terms of activity for the Cardinals' second practice of the week, he at least appears to be in a better spot than backfield mate James Conner (ribs), who was held out of a second straight session. Unless Conner shows tangible improvement at Saturday's practice, he'll be in jeopardy of missing Monday's wild-card game against the Rams. In that scenario, Edmonds would likely find himself in a three-down bellcow role for one of the few times all season.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Puts in limited practice

    Edmonds (ribs/toe) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. As expected, Edmonds was back on the field to begin the week of prep after missing the Cardinals' season finale against the Seahawks with a rib injury. He's now listed with a toe issue as well, but he at least managed some activity, which can't be said for either James Conner (ribs) or Jonathan Ward (knee). On Thursday, coach Kliff Kingsbury called both Edmonds and Conner game-time calls for Monday at the Rams, but the running back himself later stated he expects to play, per Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. How Edmonds and Conner fare in practice Friday and Saturday likely will determine their availability and likely breakdown of reps for the team's playoff opener.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Should practice Thursday

    Head coach Kliff Kingsbury expects Edmonds (ribs) to be tested at Thursday's practice, Dana Scott of The Arizona Republic reports. Kingsbury put Edmonds, James Conner (ribs/heel) and Jonathan Ward (knee) in the same category Wednesday, labeling them all as day-to-day and suggesting they would at least try to practice Thursday. Ideally, the Cardinals want Edmonds and Conner in a timeshare, but they've only had one or the other available throughout most of the second half of the season. That was the case Week 18 against Seattle with Edmonds sidelined by the rib injury, only for Conner to depart in the fourth quarter with a similar issue. With Ward also banged up, Eno Benjamin is the only healthy back on Arizona's roster as of mid-week. The Cardinals have a bit of extra time with their upcoming playoff game against the Rams scheduled for Monday.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Out for Week 18

    Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday that Edmonds (ribs) will not play Sunday against the Seahawks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. James Conner missed the past two games with a heel injury and may thus be limited if he makes it back for Sunday's. Eno Benjamin and Jonathan Ward are the backfield alternatives for an Arizona team that's playing for the win Week 18, hoping to avoid a slide from a top-three seed to a wild-card spot. Either way, Edmonds will try to make it back next weekend for the opening round of the tournament.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Not at practice Thursday

    Edmonds (rib/toe) wasn't present for Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. With Edmonds set to go down as a non-participant on the Cardinals' first two Week 18 practice reports, he looks at risk of missing Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Seahawks. Meanwhile, James Conner (heel), who missed Arizona's previous two contests, suddenly appears to be the healthier of the two backs, as he managed limited participation at Wednesday's practice and was on the field again Thursday. If Conner is cleared to play this weekend and Edmonds isn't available, the former could find himself in a three-down role.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: No practice due to two injuries

    Edmonds was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to rib and toe injuries, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Edmonds has earned two straight starts in place of an injured James Conner (heel), combining for 47 touches for 209 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown. The elevated workload has left Edmonds compromised on the health front, however, while Conner managed a limited session to begin Week 18 prep. Edmonds will have two more chances to put himself on a path to active status Sunday versus the Seahawks, but the script again may flip for the two running backs when it comes to which of the two serves as the top option out of the backfield.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Moderate production Sunday

    Edmonds carried the ball 18 times for 53 yards and caught five of six targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 25-22 win over the Cowboys. Despite the fact he once again didn't have to share the backfield touches with James Conner (heel), Edmonds wasn't able to come close to matching the 127 scrimmage yards and a TD he put up against the Colts the week before. His workload, and his production, in Week 18 against the Seahawks will depend largely on whether Conner is able to return to the lineup.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: To be lead back again Sunday

    Edmonds will be the Cardinals' primary running back for Sunday's game in Dallas with James Conner (heel) sidelined, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. Taking on the mantle of unquestioned No.1 running back Week 16 versus the Colts with Conner not available for that contest, Edmonds handled 24 touches and turned them into 127 yards from scrimmage and one TD. Edmonds should be poised for a similar workload versus Dallas' 12th-ranked run defense (109.5 yards per game).

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Cleared to play, Conner uncertain

    Edmonds (back) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Dallas, while backfield mate James Conner (heel) is listed as questionable, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Conner returned to practice Friday in a limited capacity, hoping to gut it out after Edmonds erupted for 127 total yards on 92 percent snap share in last week's 22-16 loss to the Colts. It is possible Conner has a smaller-than-usual role even if he's active, but that'll be tough to count on for those with a tough lineup decision between Edmonds and another running back(s). Most of those decisions swing towards Edmonds if Conner is out again, while the matchup with Dallas starts to look awfully daunting with the prospect of a timeshare added. Conner could be a game-time decision ahead of the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Still limited Thursday

    Edmonds (back) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Both of the Cardinals' top running backs are at less than 100 percent health at the moment, but Edmonds at least has been able to log some on-field work this week. On the other hand, James Conner (heel) was listed as a non-participant on a fifth straight practice report and may be poised for a second consecutive absence Sunday in Dallas. If that comes to pass, Edmonds again would be Arizona's unquestioned No. 1 RB -- assuming he's active -- which translated to 24 touches for 127 yards from scrimmage and one TD this past Saturday versus the Colts.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Fruitful performance sans Conner

    Edmonds tallied 16 carries for 56 yards and one touchdown and gathered in eight of nine targets for 71 yards during Saturday's 22-16 defeat to the Colts. With James Conner unable to play through a heel injury, Edmonds was thrust into a major role out of the Cardinals backfield, earning his highest touch count of the season. The result was Edmonds' third outing of the campaign with at least 100 yards from scrimmage, but it was his first since Week 4. Additionally, he visited the end zone for just the second time through 11 appearances. His week-to-week usage likely depends on the availability of Conner, but as long as the latter is banged up, Edmonds should be in line for a larger share of the RB reps.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Six touches in return from IR

    Edmonds (ankle) rushed six times for 53 yards and failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 30-12 loss to Detroit. Edmonds was productive on a per-touch basis in his first action since Week 9, but neither he nor James Conner (70 scrimmage yards on 10 touches) were fed the ball much as the Cardinals surprisingly spent the entire game fruitlessly attempting to play catch-up. Conner thrived while Edmonds was out and will likely see the majority of touches in Week 16 against the Colts, but don't be too quick to write Edmonds off given his robust 5.9 yards per carry this season.

  • Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Looks healthy in practice

    Edmonds (ankle) is running routes at Friday's practice and looks healthy, according to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com. Edmonds is closing in on a return after four consecutive missed games, while James Conner is now dealing with an ankle injury of his own, though the 230-pounder did return to practice Friday. Unlike his teammate, Edmonds won't be listed on the practice/injury report this week, as he's technically still on IR (with a designation to return). The Cardinals need to move Edmonds to the active roster by Saturday afternoon to have him available for Sunday's game in Detroit.
