Edmonds joined the Buccaneers this offseason and will battle Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Sean Tucker for touches behind Rachaad White. He's a fine pick in the double-digit rounds of a PPR league. The best path you can project is that Edmonds wins the third-down job and plays with Baker Mayfield, who led the NFL with an 11.9% checkdown rate in 2022. As much as Edmonds struggled as a rusher last year, he was still above average as a pass catcher, averaging 6.5 yards per target. Even if everything goes right for Edmonds, he's a flex at best. If everything goes wrong, he could be cut.
Edmonds signed with Tampa Bay after failing to make a mark with Denver and Miami last season. In a combined 13 games with the two clubs, Edmonds was limited to 402 yards (his fewest since his rookie season in Arizona in 2018) and three TDs on 84 touches. The 27-year-old peaked with a 25th-place fantasy campaign in 2020, which was fueled by a 53-402-4 receiving line (he finished top 7 among RBs in receptions, receiving yards and receiving TDs). Edmonds is positioned for a rebound campaign and he battles with second-year Rachaad White for work in the Tampa Bay backfield. Standalone value is unlikely in an offense likely to struggle, but Edmonds may find his way to insurance value in deeper formats.
