Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds has made the most of his opportunities in this backfield and is coming off an impressive performance. He has been dealing with a shoulder injury, so his status is one to monitor as we get closer to kickoff on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.
Note — Edmonds is listed as questionable for Week 5 vs. the 49ers.
Fantasy Football analysis: Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds
Edmonds finished with just 12 rushing attempts in last week’s game against the Los Angeles Rams and went for 120 yards, highlighted by a 54-yard run. He also caught four of five targets for 19 receiving yards. Unfortunately for those who have Edmonds on their fantasy roster, James Conner saw a bigger workload with 18 rushing attempts for just 50 yards but played well as the goal-line back with a pair of 1-yard touchdown runs.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
If Edmonds is healthy enough to play, he should be a running back No. 2 from a fantasy perspective. He is clearly the better playmaker in this backfield and deserves more usage in the ground game.
