Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards said his role in the offense has not changed even though the team added RBs Mark Ingram and Justice Hill this offseason. He said he has been working with the first-team offense during practices.
Huddle Up: The Ravens are expected to run a lot this season, so Edwards should receive plenty of touches. Fantasy players should monitor the team's running back situation to see how the runners will be used in the offense. Edwards can be at least a No. 3 running back in standard leagues if he is the starter.

Baltimore Ravens exclusive rights free-agent RB Gus Edwards signed his one-year tender offer Monday, April 15, and will make $570,000 in 2019.
Huddle Up: Edwards was a big part of the offense during the second half of the 2018 season but likely will lose the starting job with Mark Ingram on the roster. He could still see some carries during games but may only be a handcuff to Ingram in fantasy leagues.

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards is the starting running back at this point but will have competition for the job, according to head coach John Harbaugh.
Huddle Up: Edwards took over the starting job during the second half of the season and finished with 718 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games. He appears to have good chemistry with Lamar Jackson and could be a No. 2 running back in most leagues if he keeps the starting job.

Huddle Up: Edwards has been nothing short of a workhorse for Baltimore the last three weeks, averaging 20.3 carries in that span. He's not involved in the passing game, which hurts his PPR stock, but he's an RB2 candidate if he is active against the Kansas City Chiefs.
