Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury confirmed Monday what most of us expected out of his backfield. "We expect both guys to share the load for the most part," the coach told ESPN's Josh Weinfuss, referring, of course, to RBs Chase Edmonds and James Conner. "We'll play to their strengths," Kingsbury added. "James is obviously a bigger back. Chase, when he had [an] opportunity, did some great things, and we want to make sure we're calling plays that both those guys are comfortable with when they're in and kind of tailor to them." Kingsbury added that "they can both do it all," but it's pretty clear that Conner will hold the edge near the goal line and Edmonds in the passing game -- much like with Edmonds and Kenyan Drake last year. Both remain fine values in current drafting: Edmonds as RB27 in FFPC best-ball formats, Conner at RB38.

ESPN's Josh Weinfuss believes Cardinals RBs Chase Edmonds and James Conner will "split the primary reps to start, with whoever has the hot hand getting the ball." Fantasy drafters are clearly expecting Edmonds to lead this backfield, taking him about 3 rounds ahead of Conner. We'll see if we get more clarity on the situation over the next month, but Conner is probably the better shot at ADP right now.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) is active for today’s game against the Rams. It’s unclear how big a role he’ll be able to play, making him a shaky fantasy option.

There's "optimism" Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) will be able to play vs. the Rams today, although he remains a game-time decision, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Edmonds has been playing through injuries for a few weeks now. He can't be trusted in Week 17 fantasy lineups, but his presence would continue to cap RB Kenyan Drake's upside.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. HC Kliff Kingsbury said he’ll be a game-time decision. Edmonds’ absence would be a boost to RB Kenyan Drake’s projected volume.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds suffered a hip injury in the 1st half of Saturday's game vs. the 49ers and is officially questionable to return. He entered this one with ankle and knee injuries. We'll pass along an update on Edmonds when we get one.

Update: Edmonds has been ruled out.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle, knee) got in just 1 limited practice this week and is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the 49ers. He was in the same boat last week -- and then went out and led Arizona RBs with a 53% snap rate, 11 carries and 5 targets. We'll get Edmonds' game status around 3 pm ET on Saturday.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. He only got in a limited practice on Friday this week and might have his role scaled back today. Edmonds shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) is expected to play against the Eagles today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He may have a reduced role, though, depending on how he feels," Rapoport adds. Edmonds was a fringe fantasy option at less than 100% and shouldn't be in lineups now. It sounds like RB Kenyan Drake might be in for a few extra touches.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Eagles. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, and HC Kliff Kingsbury said earlier in the week that Edmonds would be a game-time decision. He can't be trusted in fantasy lineups at less than 100%. Edmonds' absence would be a boost to RB Kenyan Drake's target projection.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury. HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled him a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Eagles. We'll keep a close eye on Edmonds' status leading up to that one. His absence would mean more passing-game work for RB Kenyan Drake.

The Cardinals selected Arizona State RB Eno Benjamin in the 7th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. We’re surprised he lasted this long. Benjamin is a fun watch; a Tazmanian Devil-style runner who darts and spins his way through traffic. Some scouts think he does too much dancing, though, which might explain his underwhelming 5.0 career yards per carry. Benjamin ranked a mediocre 15th among 21 of this year’s top RB prospects in Pro Football Focus’ 2019 Elusive Rating and 14th in the site’s rushing grades. And although he racked up 553 carries over the past 2 years, the 5’9, 207-pounder is likely too small to handle big workloads as a pro. On the plus side, Benjamin tested as a 72nd percentile athlete at the Combine and leads this RB class in career receptions (82), career receptions per game (2.4) and 2019 market share of receptions (18.0%). He should compete with Chase Edmonds for change-of-pace duties behind Kenyan Drake in Arizona.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game against the Rams. It’s completely unclear how much work he’ll see behind new lead back Kenyan Drake, so Edmonds can’t be trusted in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) is expected back for Sunday's game against the Rams, HC Kliff Kingsbury said Monday. Edmonds turned in a huge Week 7 before going down with the hammy in Week 8. Since then, Kenyan Drake has impressed as Arizona's lead back. It's unclear how the Cards will divvy work between Drake, Edmonds and David Johnson -- although Kingsbury said, "It's on us as an offensive staff to find different ways to get them involved and get them the football." Drake is the best fantasy bet for Week 13 but should be considered a risk/reward RB3.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the 49ers. Kenyan Drake out-snapped and out-touched David Johnson last week and is the better Week 11 fantasy bet.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds is expected to miss "a few weeks" with the hamstring injury he suffered in yesterday's loss to the Saints, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Arizona has a Week 12 bye, so Week 13 seems like the most realistic return date for Edmonds. We'll see what the backfield looks like at that point with David Johnson rehabbing his ankle injury and Kenyan Drake now in the mix.

The Cardinals have agreed to send a conditional 2020 draft pick to the Dolphins in exchange for RB Kenyan Drake, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Arizona has lost RB David Johnson to an ankle injury and RB Chase Edmonds to a hamstring injury over the past couple of weeks. Both guys seem unlikely to be ready for Thursday night's game against the 49ers. Schefter confirms that Drake "could be in line for significant work" in that one. There's nice short-term opportunity here, so Drake is worth rostering in all fantasy leagues. But he figures to struggle for volume when Johnson and Edmonds get healthy.
