Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds rushed for 46 yards on eight carries and caught all five of his targets for 29 yards in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: This is about the type of performance fantasy managers should expect from Edmonds moving forward since he splits the rushing work with James Conner and is the primary back on passing downs. His touchdown upside is minimal because Kyler Murray essentially serves as the No. 1 option near the goal line. Fantasy managers should expect roughly 13 touches per week without a score from him most weeks, but his work in the passing game makes him a serviceable RB2 in PPR leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds rushed 12 times for 63 yards in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans and he added four catches for 43 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Edmonds averaged 5.3 yards per carry, while Conner ended up with 53 rushing yards and 3.3 yards per tote. So Edmonds is likely to continue at least in a timeshare with Conner. He is a solid low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds says he's ready to take advantage of the opportunity and seize the team's lead-back role in 2021. 'It's now or never,' Edmonds said in an article posted Friday, May 21, on the team's website . 'I've finally got my opportunity really and truly in front of me to have a pretty big role in this offense. It's something I've been dying for, praying for, since my first three years in the NFL. It seemed like it would never happen, but I've finally got this opportunity, and I've got to make the most of it.'
Huddle Up: Edmonds has averaged 101 touches in his three seasons with the Cards, including a career-most 150 last season (good for 850 total yards and five TDs). Former Pittsburgh Steelers bellcow back James Conner was added in the offseason, but the incumbent Edmonds should finally be the Cards' No. 1 back this season and is a low-end RB2 draft possibility.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds may receive some competition this offseason as general manager Steve Keim suggested Monday, March 22, that he will monitor the running back position. However, Keim is of the belief that Edmonds is an 'excellent' player.
Huddle Up: This is definitely one situation to monitor as the offseason unfolds. Edmonds has been allowed to assume a heavy workload on occasion when Arizona's starter has been sidelined - like Kenyan Drake was for a game in 2020 - suggesting the team could be willing to make him the unquestioned starter if they don't add anyone of note. If Arizona avoids the running back position over the first two days of the draft next month, Edmonds would have a solid path to potential fantasy RB1 status.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds gives the team confidence in his abilities as a starting running back if they don't re-sign RB Kenyan Drake.
Huddle Up: Everyone remembers the 27-126-3 game he had against the New York Giants two years ago. Edmonds can run and catch, and he would be an upside RB2 in PPR leagues if he winds up the starter.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) is officially active for the Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Edmonds did not practice this week, so he may have a limited role in the offense this week. Fantasy players can consider benching him if they have better options available.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) is considered a game-time decision for Week 17's game against the Los Angeles Rams, though there is optimism that he will play, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Edmonds had been listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing at all during the week but since the Cardinals are in a must-win situation, it appears likely that he will suit up unless he suffers a setback in pregame warmups. If he is active for the game, he should be viewed as a somewhat risky flex option in deeper fantasy formats.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, as he deals with a hip injury.
Huddle Up: Edmonds' last shot may come down to a game-time decision Sunday, and he would be a flex consideration if he's able to play. If not, it'll be Kenyan Drake's show in the Cards' backfield.
