Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards said he believes the team will be able to keep the top four running backs involved in the offense this season.
Huddle Up: The Ravens likely will have Edwards, Mark Ingram, J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill on their final roster, so they likely will be using a committee at the position. Ingram and Dobbins should receive most of the work in the running game and should be rostered in all leagues. Edwards and Hill could be late-round options in deeper leagues.

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards said he has been working out with RB Justice Hill multiple times a week this offseason. They have been participating in drills during the workouts.
Huddle Up: Edwards and Hill are part of a crowded running back corps, so it is not known how many touches they will receive each game. Edwards probably will see a few carries each game, while Hill should be part of the passing game. They could be a late-round option in some leagues but will not be starting options.

Baltimore Ravens exclusive rights free-agent RB Gus Edwards was tendered a contract Monday, March 16.
Huddle Up: Edwards was a solid part of the running game this past season and probably will continue to serve as the backup running back for the Ravens in 2020. He should be on fantasy rosters next season even if he does not receive a majority of the carries.

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards rushed for 66 yards on 12 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Edwards received a bigger role in the running game this week after Mark Ingram left with an injury and could be the main runner next week if Ingram is not able to play. Edwards can be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he receives a majority of the carries.

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards rushed 14 times for 55 yards in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Most of the work for Edwards came in a lopsided second half. The Ravens are doing a lot of that lately. However, when they're in closer games, Edwards isn't expected to see as much work as long as Mark Ingram is healthy and available. It should be a much tighter game against San Francisco in Week 13.

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards rushed eight times for 112 yards in Week 11 against the Houston Texans, including a 63-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
Huddle Up: Edwards and the Baltimore running backs weren't doing much until that late touchdown put a bow on the scoring. Fantasy owners might see him on the waiver and consider him, but he is still only worth a look in deeper leagues heading into Week 12 and beyond as long as Mark Ingram is healthy.

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards rushed seven times for 53 yards in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added two grabs for 15 yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Edwards will continue to spell Mark Ingram when needed, but the latter is the bellcow in Charm City and Edwards is only a reserve with very limited fantasy appeal. The Ravens will host the Browns in Week 4.

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.
