25-Year-Old Running BackRB
Baltimore Ravens
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Edwards is perhaps the preeminent example of a back being the right fit for an offense. On another team, his lack of wiggle and bulldozer running style - not to mention his lack of receiving skills - might restrict him to a short-yardage role or even practice squad status. In Baltimore, Edwards offers an ideal complement to the threat posed by Lamar Jackson in the open field, and he's averaged more than five yards per carry as the guy who punches the defense in the face when it's expecting a dance. Edwards' success is also based on him knowing his limitations, and no back in the league bounced a lower percentage of their runs outside the tackles last season. That success won't save his spot on the depth chart, though. Mark Ingram remains the starter, and the surprise addition of J.K. Dobbins in the second round of this year's draft gives the Ravens a younger, more talented option for that smash-mouth role. Edwards should still thrive in offensive coordinator Greg Roman's scheme when he gets the ball, but it will be tough to reach triple-digit carries again. Read Past Outlooks

Edwards rushed eight times for 38 yards in Sunday's 20-13 wild-card win over the Titans.
ANALYSIS
Edwards' carry total trailed those of Lamar Jackson (16) and J.K. Dobbins (nine), but he nonetheless helped Baltimore rack up another 236 yards on the ground. As the power option in a relentless rushing scheme, Edwards should remain an important member of the Ravens' offense regardless of the team's opponent in the AFC divisional round next weekend.

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.
