Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards carried 10 times for a team-high 73 yards in Week 2 versus the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Baltimore offensive coordinator Greg Roman promised an unpredictable backfield and so far he has delivered, somehow making it nearly impossible for fantasy owners to start one back in an offense that has rushed for 341 yards through two games. Edwards possesses the lowest upside of the group and should only be rostered in the deepest of leagues. Don't expect him to get much run in Week 3 in Week 3 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards was forced down the depth chart following the arrival of second-round draft pick J.K. Dobbins. However, ESPN's Jamison Hensley believes his roster spot is safe after rushing for at least 700 yards in consecutive seasons despite the fact Baltimore has yet to carry four running backs on its season-opening roster in 12 seasons under head coach John Harbaugh.

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 RB Gus Edwards averaged 5.3 yards per carry in 2019, the third most among qualified runners.

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.
Posted: 11/17/2019 9:56 pm UTC
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.
