While Chase Edmonds has once again found himself on the injury list with a back issue, expect him to be good to go on Sunday since he was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice. While Edmonds averaged a paltry 3.5 yards per carry in last Saturday’s matchup, he also logged eight receptions for 71 yards, once again showing his value as, at worst, one of the league’s best RB2s.
With James Conner still dealing with a heel injury, look for Edmonds to once again pick up the slack. Expect him to finish the game with 75 rushing AND 75 receiving yards, for 150 yards from scrimmage and his first receiving touchdown of the season.
On an even more positive note, the 25-yard-old back seems to get better with age. His 98 carries are the most he has received in a single season, and his 5.5 yards per carry average is also a career-best. He also broke the 500 rushing yard milestone last week, a solid number for a back who has spent his career splitting carries.
