2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 81st pick in the 2020 draft, Edwards had a low-impact rookie year, missing four games with a foot injury and eclipsing two targets only once all year. At 6-3, 212, he has excellent size, and while he didn't run in the NFL Combine, he's got good speed for a big receiver. He should get another chance this year in a wide-open receiving corps. Last year's 12th overall pick Henry Ruggs has yet to establish himself, last year's top wideout Nelson Agholor is gone and offseason addition John Brown didn't make the 53-man roster, so Edwards only has to compete with Ruggs and slot man Hunter Renfrow for WR targets.

Big-play threat in OT win
WRLas Vegas Raiders
September 26, 2021
Edwards caught three of five targets for a game-high 89 yards in Sunday's 31-28 overtime win over the Dolphins.
ANALYSIS
The second-year wideout didn't get many looks from Derek Carr, but he made his catches count, hauling in passes of 23, 32 and 34 yards, with the latter two helping to set up both of the Raiders' field goals in OT. Late-game heroics are beginning to become a habit for Edwards, and he could get an opportunity for more big receptions Week 4 in an AFC West showdown with the Chargers.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Four years of production at South Carolina included over 3,000 total receiving yards and no less than four touchdowns in a given season, but a broken foot kept Edwards out of the 2020 NFL Combine and he ultimately fell to the Raiders at No. 81 overall in the draft. The issue shouldn't linger into training camp, but Edwards faces stiff competition for targets as Las Vegas spent their first pick on Henry Ruggs to complement Tyrell Williams and slot receiver Hunter Renfrow, while tight end Darren Waller draws plenty of attention as well. Williams dealt with nagging plantar fasciitis in 2019, however, so the selection of the 6-foot-3, 212 pound Edwards selection provides the team with insurance on the outside.
