24-Year-Old Running BackRB
Baltimore Ravens
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. Read Past Outlooks

Edwards will remain with the Ravens after the team placed a contract tender on the exclusive rights free agent.
ANALYSIS
Edwards is thus slated to reprise his role working behind Baltimore's top back, Mark Ingram. Edwards finished up the 2019 campaign with 133 carries for 711 yards and two TDs, to go along with seven catches for 45 yards. As long as Ingram stays healthy, Edwards isn't a strong fantasy lineup option, but the 24-year-old has been productive when given the opportunity, having maintained an average of 5.3 yards per carry over his first two seasons with Baltimore.
