Ravens' Gus Edwards: Slides to backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens signed Mark Ingram to join Edwards and Kenneth Dixon in the backfield, ESPN.com reports.

Coach John Harbuagh referred to Edwards as his No. 1 running back a couple weeks ago, but it's pretty clear that won't be the case unless Ingram misses time with an injury. The 29-year-old former Saint is coming off four straight seasons with at least 4.6 yards per carry and six rushing touchdowns, and he's also far more proven than Edwards and Dixon in terms of blocking and receiving (228 career receptions). The team should still have a role for Edwards in a run-heavy offense, but he'll presumably be competing for the No. 2 job instead of the starting gig.

Ravens' Gus Edwards: No. 1 back in Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Edwards is the Ravens' No.1 running back "right now," Ryan Mink of the team's official site reports.

Harbaugh made the comment during his media availability at the NFL Scouting Combine, an event Edwards wasn't even invited to one year ago. Edwards went on to lead the team with 718 yards and two touchdowns as an undrafted rookie despite not taking on a major role until Week 11. As it stands, Edwards will be the starter in what projects to be one of the league's most run-heavy offenses. Kenneth Dixon looked good once he got back on the field in 2018 and will warrant his own workload, and the Ravens could still add depth at the position via free agency or the mid-to-late rounds of the upcoming draft. Still, Edwards did enough for himself to earn top billing on the depth chart heading into 2019.

Ravens' Gus Edwards: Struggles with efficiency in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Gus Edwards: Makes most of carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Ravens' Gus Edwards: Combines to go over 100 again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
