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.

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.

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards ran eight times for just 23 yards in the AFC Wild Card playoff game loss against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Edwards, an undrafted rookie from Rutgers, posted 718 rushing yards and two touchdowns. He basically came out of nowhere and will now be remembered by fantasy owners heading into 2019. How much he is featured next season depends on personnel moves and draft picks during the offseason, but it's clear he'll have some kind of role going forward.
