2021 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Carl Edwards in 2021. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
Open to One-Off NASCAR Start
Retired
April 3, 2021
Edwards says there is potential he could return to NASCAR for a one-off road course start, jayski.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Edwards shared with NASCAR Race Hub that he misses the people and the driving part of NASCAR racing, but doesn't miss the long grueling schedule. The retired driver has spent much of his time away from the sport traveling and farming. However, he did say a one-off start would be attractive. "Towards the end of my career, I really enjoyed the road courses. If I were going to do something, it would probably be on a road course. Or, if NASCAR by chance changed the package to where there was no downforce and about 1,000 horsepower, I could probably get pretty interested in that, too," Edwards said.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2014
2008
2006
Announced his retirement from NASCAR racing in January 2017.
With the departure of Matt Kenseth, Edwards becomes the number one focus at Roush Fenway Racing. Undoubtedly that is a good thing for the driver of the No. 99 Ford. Edwards is coming off a puzzlingly poor season in 2012. He missed the Chase for the Cup field for just the second time in his nine-year career and was held out of victory lane for the second time in the last four seasons. Edwards hopes to reverse those trends in 2013, and with the team’s new focus we believe that will happen. We don’t believe the Roush Fenway star will return to multi-win form, but we should see the type of consistency that made him a championship contender in 2011. A campaign of 20 or more Top-10 finishes should be in store.
Edwards was the phenom who stole the spotlight in 2005. He won four races and challenged for a championship during the Chase. Edwards will be as good in 2006, but we don't expect a Nextel Cup championship just yet.
