2023 Season Outlooks

Edwards is a medium-priority handcuff and bench RB for Fantasy managers to keep in mind once Round 13 starts. His Fantasy contributions have been slim since 2020 but he does play, logging 11-plus carries in five of six games he played at least 20% of the snaps in last year, averaging 5.0 yards per carry for the fourth time in four seasons. Unfortunately, Edwards has constantly struggled to score (one touchdown every 38.5 carries for his career), has been a non-factor in the passing game (18 career receptions) and is sure to split reps. He'll likely need an injury to J.K. Dobbins to become a reliable Fantasy starter.

Edwards returns to the Baltimore backfield after missing all of 2021 with a torn ACL and managing only 87 touches in nine games last season. The 28-year-old has proven an effective rusher throughout his career (5.16 YPC on 501 attempts) and that carried over to last season, albeit on a very small sample of work. Edwards is a nonfactor as a receiver (194 yards on 26 targets in his career) and was actually held without a single catch last season. Edwards figures to carve out a role in the Baltimore backfield, but J.K. Dobbins will lead the way, leaving the veteran back without much fantasy upside.
