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

January 2, 2019
Edmonds recorded 60 carries for 208 yards and two touchdowns while hauling in 20 of his 23 targets for 103 yards across 16 games during the 2018 campaign.
ANALYSIS
The Cardinals already had an established lead back (David Johnson) prior to the 2018 draft, but it didn't stop general manager Steve Keim from selecting Edmonds in the fourth round with the 134th overall pick. Outside of a two-score performance in a Week 13 upset win over Green Bay, Edmonds was unable to make much of a dent in Johnson's workload. A stagnant offensive scheme partly was to blame, but Edmonds earned double-digit touches just once as a rookie (Week 15 in Atlanta). With Johnson locked into a lucrative extension through the 2021 season, Edmonds likely will need an injury from the former to make much of an impact during his first NFL contract. On the other hand, Arizona's lack of other backfield talent makes Edmonds the top candidate to fill in for Johnson in that scenario.
