2019 Fantasy Outlook
Undrafted out of Rutgers last year, Edwards started his rookie campaign on the practice squad before eventually making his NFL debut Week 6. It wasn't until after the Ravens' bye week and Alex Collins' season-ending foot injury that Edwards moved into a significant role, exploding for 233 rushing yards and a touchdowns in his first two starts to seize the lead job for good down the stretch. His rise coincided with Lamar Jackson's, and Edwards' no-nonsense, bruising running style proved to be an important component in the team's improvisational, option-driven, run-heavy offense. But he doesn't offer much in the way of speed or elusiveness, and he showed almost nothing as a receiver, limiting him to early downs. Edwards' role is set to diminish with Mark Ingram arriving from the Saints and speedy fourth-round pick Justice Hill joining a backfield that also includes holdover Kenneth Dixon. Even so, Edwards should still get his chance to carve out some carries. Read Past Outlooks

Continues to see limited role

Edwards had five carries for 17 yards Sunday against the Steelers and added one catch for six yards.
ANALYSIS
It was another quiet outing from Edwards, who now has been held under 30 rushing yards in three of his last four outings. He's averaging just 19.7 offensive snaps per game in that span and simply isn't seeing a useful role for fantasy purposes. Mark Ingram and Lamar Jackson are accounting for nearly 70 percent of the rushes in the offense, so even though Edwards is firmly ahead of Justice Hill, there aren't enough carries left over for Edwards to manufacture relevant production.
