2020 Fantasy Outlook
For one brief, shining moment between David Johnson's uninspiring reign and the arrival of Kenyan Drake, Edmonds looked like a superstar, erupting for 150 yards and three TDs Week 7 against the Giants. That game ended up accounting for more than a third of his total yards, however, as he strained his hamstring the following week and found touches hard to come by behind Drake at the end of the season. Edmonds offers three-down potential, combining good power, vision and elusiveness with soft hands, and while he lacks breakaway speed, he's still dangerous in the open field. Avoiding injuries has been an issue for Edmonds dating to college, however, so while he's already demonstrated he can be a weapon as the lead back in short bursts, he's better suited to a depth role than a full-time starting gig. With Drake heading the backfield and 2020 seventh-round pick Eno Benjamin joining the mix, Edmonds likely will have to make up in efficiency what he lacks in volume. Read Past Outlooks

November 30, 2020
Edmonds had six carries for 29 yards and four catches (on five targets) for 14 yards during Sunday's 20-17 loss at New England.
ANALYSIS
On a day in which the Cardinals couldn't get much going through the air -- Kyler Murray averaged a measly 5.0 yards per attempt -- Edmonds' slight contribution as a receiver helped him finish third among the team's skill-position players with 43 yards from scrimmage. Only Kenyan Drake (93) and DeAndre Hopkins (55) compiled more such yards. In the 10 games that Drake has been available this season, Edmonds has averaged 8.2 touches for 56.7 total yards per game while scoring four TDs, so the latter still has utility when used as a complementary option out of Arizona's backfield.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Edmonds' landing spot in the aftermath of the 2018 draft wasn't ideal for production, what with workhorse David Johnson in front of him. Furthermore, Arizona was finding itself after Bruce Arians' retirement. Due to the presence of Johnson, Edmonds wasn't projected to have much of a role in the Cardinals offense, but two coordinators later, this unit ended the year ranked last in both points and yards. Such a finish had a residual effect on the skill positions, and despite getting 21 percent of the offensive snaps, Edmonds managed 311 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns on 80 touches as a rookie. With Johnson still on board as the No. 1 RB, Edmonds isn't expected to receive much more work, but a new scheme under coach Kliff Kingsbury may help the offense approach its potential, even those (like Edmonds) further down the depth chart.
In the wake of David Johnson's lost season due to a dislocated wrist, the Cardinals made a concerted effort to overhaul the depth behind him this offseason. Both Adrian Peterson (released) and Kerwynn Williams (unrestricted free agent) were sent packing, and while Elijhaa Penny was kept around, the new coaching staff led by Steve Wilks decided to move Penny from tailback to fullback during the offseason. With unknown entities in 2017 fifth-rounder T.J. Logan and the undrafted D.J. Foster the only other true running backs on the roster, the front office took a chance on Edmonds in the fourth round of this year's draft. Edmonds theoretically brings the total package to the pros, but almost all of his production at Fordham came against FCS competition. His profile is nonetheless impressive, featuring 5,862 rushing yards, 905 receiving yards and a subdivision record 74 touchdowns. Edmonds is unlikely to get more than a few touches per week so long as Johnson stays healthy, but the rookie does at least offer the most potential among the handcuff options in Arizona. Edmonds likely will need to prove competent as a pass catcher and pass blocker in order to beat out Foster and Logan for the No. 2 job.
