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 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.

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.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Edmonds played just 16 offensive snaps before leaving the Week 16 games against the San Francisco 49ers. He should be left out of lineups in a tough matchup against the Los Angeles Rams even if active.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) is considered day-to-day with the hip injury that forced him to exit early in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: It sounds as if Edmonds has a decent shot at playing in Week 17 versus the Los Angeles Rams. Kenyan Drake has been asked to handle more work in recent weeks, but it hasn't led to much more production. If Edmonds can play, he'll be a decent flex option with RB2 upside. Looking ahead to 2021, Drake's lackluster finish could mean Arizona will let him test the market and give Edmonds a shot at the starting job.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) suffered a hip injury during the Week 16 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Kenyan Drake will receive most of the work at running back if Edmonds misses an extended period of time. Drake can be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
