Arizona Cardinals: Meet the 2019 running backs
Edmonds enters his second season as the Cardinals backup running back. He showed flashes of why the Cardinals thought so highly of him coming out of Fordham in 2018.
He only had 208-yards rushing but those were some hard-earned yards. He scored two touchdowns last season, both on the ground.
He also caught 20 passes. As anemic as the Cardinals offense was last season, that gave the Cardinals 70 receptions from their top two running backs. Expect even more from him in his sophomore season.
Fantasy value: You may not think of Edmonds having any fantasy value at all but don’t immediately rule him out for those of you in deeper leagues.
Edmonds will be used often, especially in short yardage situations. That means should find him getting opportunities inside the 10-yard line. That means more scoring.
He had just the two touchdowns last season but he is likely to top that number in 2019. Still, only play him when you absolutely have to. He’s not going to get you 15 touchdowns, but at some point he could become what former Cardinals running back Tim Hightower was. As a backup he had 10 touchdowns one season.
