Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Productive again on limited touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds carried the ball three times for 36 yards and a touchdown and caught five of six targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 30-10 win over the Jets.

While Kenyan Drake saw 19 touches to Edmonds' eight, it was the latter who led the Arizona backfield in yardage as he dashed for a 29-yard TD in the first quarter and added a 30-yard reception in the second. It was Edmonds' best yardage total yet this season and he's making a strong case for a bigger workload, but he may not need many touches to make an impact in Week 6 against a porous Dallas defense.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Nine touches, one TD in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds notched four carries for 16 yards and gathered in five of six targets for 24 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-21 loss at Carolina.

Edmonds' snap share (37 percent) wasn't out of the ordinary, but he matched his season high in touches and reached the end zone for the second time this season. Meanwhile, starting running back Kenyan Drake had an injury scare late in Sunday's contest, but on Monday it was revealed he merely had the wind knocked out of him. In the end, Edmonds should maintain his usual workload moving forward, barring something happening to Drake.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Has 34 yards from scrimmage Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds compiled three carries for 13 yards and caught both of his targets for 21 yards during Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Lions.

Edmonds' touch count has decreased in each game this season, as he earned nine Week 1 and six Week 2 before five this past Sunday. He hasn't exactly been productive either, turning 20 touches into 92 yards from scrimmage and one TD. With his share of the offensive snaps hovering in the low-to-mid 30s, Edmonds' workload isn't enough to make him a consistent producer behind Kenyan Drake, who himself has yet to surpass 100 yards from scrimmage in a given game and has scored just one touchdown.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Notches six touches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds tallied three rushes for four yards and gathered in three of four targets for nine yards during Sunday's 30-15 win versus Washington.

After playing 28 snaps on offense and scoring a TD on nine touches in the Cardinals' Week 1 victory at San Francisco, Edmonds logged 27 such plays but didn't find pay dirt on six touches one week later. Meanwhile, starting running back Kenyan Drake has racked up 108 offensive snaps and scooped up most of the backfield work (40 total touches). Edmonds will make the occasional splash play, like he did in the season opener, but as long as Drake is healthy, the former will have outings like Sunday's more often than not.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Finds end zone vs. 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds carried six times for 26 yards while catching three of five targets for 19 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-20 win over the 49ers.

Edmonds didn't do much on the ground outside of a 20-yard gain, but he did manage to get his team on the board with a 10-yard receiving touchdown in the first quarter. The production was likely a pleasant surprise for Edmonds' fantasy managers, as he wasn't expected to play much of a role in this one given the team's other offensive weapons. He remains a worthy backup to Kenyan Drake, but he seems unlikely to produce bankable fantasy numbers in next Sunday's home matchup against Washington.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Feeling heat from draft pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds has some competition for backfield reps after the Cardinals drafted Eno Benjamin in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

A fourth-round pick in 2018, Edmonds could feel some heat for reps behind starter Kenyan Drake, who received the transition tag this offseason and is in talks with the Cardinals on a long-term contract. As evidence, Edmonds only received two touches in the five games in which both he and Drake were on the roster during the 2019 campaign. Additionally, Edmonds has averaged just 24.8 yards from scrimmage per game in 29 pro appearances, while Benjamin accrued 3,335 yards from scrimmage over his final two seasons at Arizona State.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Racks up 408 yards from scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds had 60 carries for 303 yards, 12 receptions (on 21 targets) for 105 yards and five total touchdowns in 13 games during the 2019 season.

Edmond got a chance to act as the Cardinals' lead running back for one contest, dashing 27 times for 126 yards and three TDs against the Giants in Week 7. Otherwise, he seemingly was an afterthought in the offense, especially after a midseason hamstring injury coincided with Kenyan Drake's arrival in Arizona. Drake enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, but his dynamic performance may have endeared himself to the team's brass. In any case, the Cards will head into the new league year with just Edmonds and David Johnson as RBs under contract.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Notches one touch Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds had a nine-yard carry and didn't haul in either of his two targets during Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Steelers.

Since sitting out three games and using the Cardinals' Week 12 bye to get past a hamstring injury, Edmonds has lost all sway he may have built up earlier in the season. Over the last two contests, he's logged just 11 offensive snaps -- all of them Sunday -- while Kenyan Drake (90) and David Johnson (37) handled the vast majority of RB reps. Without an injury to that duo, Edmonds is unlikely to make a regular impact out of Arizona's backfield.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: No snaps on offense Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds played no offensive snaps and 13 plays on special teams during Sunday's 34-7 loss to the Rams.

Edmonds' role was far different than what it was prior to his three-game absence. primarily due to the presence of Kenyan Drake, who paced Cardinals running backs with 51 (of 64) snaps on offense and 15 touches. Meanwhile, David Johnson picked up the scraps (15 snaps and six touches). Without an injury or downturn in play from Drake or Johnson, Edmonds doesn't hold much sway in Arizona's offense.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Avoids Week 13 designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Rams, Mike Jurecki of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The Cardinals listed Edmonds as a full participant in practice Friday for the second straight day, clearing the way for him to return to game action after a four-week hiatus. He'll rejoin an Arizona backfield that looks quite different from the last time he was healthy, as trade-deadline pickup Kenyan Drake has since taken over as the lead option. With Drake expected to garner the starting nod again in Week 13, Edmonds and David Johnson will vie for the primary backup duties.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Elevates to full participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds (hamstring) was a full practice participant Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Edmonds may have taken the final step in his recovery from a hamstring injury with his elevation to all activity. If he puts and end to a three-game absence Sunday against the Rams, he'll rejoin a backfield currently led by Kenyan Drake. Since Drake arrived in Arizona from Miami in Week 9, he's dominated the reps out of the backfield, seeing 57 touches to David Johnson's six while Edmonds was absent.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Limited off bye week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's walk-through, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Coming off a Week 12 bye, Edmonds and defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard (foot) are the only Cardinals with injuries that are impacting their practice reps. While there's an expectation Edmonds returns from a three-game absence Sunday against the Rams, the state of the backfield is far different than his last appearance Week 8. Kenyan Drake, formerly of the Dolphins, has overtaken David Johnson for the top job, leaving nothing but scraps behind for the remaining backs. It remains to be seen if Johnson and/or an active Edmonds can reclaim some of their former workloads.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Likely to return Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday that he expects Edmonds (hamstring) to play in the Cardinals' Week 13 matchup with the Rams, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

After missing the Cardinals' previous three contests, Edmunds appears at or near full health coming out of the team's Week 12 bye. He was spotted on the field Monday in the Cardinals' informal practice session, but the extent of his activity won't be known until Arizona reveals its first injury report of Week 13 on Wednesday. Assuming Kingsbury's prediction comes to pass, Edmonds will rejoin a crowded backfield that now counts Kenyan Drake as its lead option. Prior to getting hurt Week 8, Edmonds had entered a timeshare with David Johnson, owing largely to his breakthrough 150-yard, three-touchdown outing a week before that versus the Giants. Poor health along with Drake's success have rendered Johnson an afterthought lately for the Cardinals -- he garnered zero touches and played only nine offensive snaps Week 11 -- but a healthy Edmonds could prove to be a more worthy challenger to Drake for the No. 1 role.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Spotted at practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds (hamstring) was present for practice Monday, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Edmonds no doubt benefited from the Cardinals' Week 12 bye and seems to be trending in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Rams approaches. That said, even if Edmonds is available this weekend, what sort of role he might have is cloudy, with Kenyan Drake and David Johnson also in the team's backfield mix.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said that Edmonds (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Edmonds' absence for a third consecutive game paves the way for the tandem of Kenyan Drake and David Johnson to lead the backfield in Week 11. Per Josh Weinfuss of, Kingsbury declined to name a starter among the two healthy backs, instead noting that he would take a "committee" approach with Drake and Johnson, who are both expected to have packages on offense. The Cardinals' muddled backfield will become even cloudier if Edmonds is ready to play again coming out of Arizona's Week 12 bye.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Remains sidelined at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Yet again, Edmonds was listed as a DNP on the team's injury report, but in the part of Thursday's session open to the media, Edmonds was spotted working on the side, per Urban. Until he takes part in practice, Edmonds won't be a candidate to return to action, leaving him in danger of missing his third consecutive game Sunday in San Francisco. In that reality, Kenyan Drake and David Johnson will share the team's Week 11 backfield duties.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Held out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds (hamstring) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Edmonds has made negligible progress in his recovery from a hamstring injury, missing every practice and two games since picking up the issue Week 8. With Kenyan Drake and David Johnson in their backfield, the Cardinals don't need to rush Edmonds through his rehab. Plus, the team has a bye after Sunday's game at Arizona, so it wouldn't surprise if Edmonds misses a third consecutive contest this weekend.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Out another week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Edmonds was never expected to play and still hasn't returned to practice. It's unclear if he'll be a significant part of the backfield even after he gets healthy, considering the Cardinals also have David Johnson and Kenyan Drake. The team faces the 49ers in Week 11, followed by a bye in Week 12.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Misses another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

With David Johnson (ankle) back to full health and Kenyan Drake in the fold, the Cardinals can opt for caution with Edmonds, who hasn't practiced since Oct. 25. If Edmonds misses a second consecutive contest Sunday at Tampa Bay, the aforementioned duo will be the team's top two running backs in some order with Zach Zenner in reserve.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds (hamstring) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Meanwhile, David Johnson practiced fully and noted afterward he's "definitely playing" Sunday at Tampa Bay, per Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site. With Johnson past his ankle injury and Kenyan Drake coming off a dynamic debut with the team, the Cardinals can proceed cautiously with Edmonds. Still, a decision on Edmonds' Week 10 availability may not come until the end of the week.
