2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Notches 14 yards rushing
RBArizona Cardinals
December 10, 2018
Edmonds had three carries for 14 yards and returned one kickoff for 17 yards during Sunday's 17-3 defeat to the Lions.
ANALYSIS
Acting as the clear No. 2 running back behind David Johnson, Edmonds has been afforded a shade over five touches per game this season. However, outside of a Week 13 outburst in which he totaled 66 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns, Edmonds has averaged a dismal 2.7 YPC with no end-zone visits. In reality, the aforementioned outing was an aberration, meaning anyone who took a chance on the rookie should get used to performances like Sunday's.
