Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Edmonds operated as Arizona’s primary pass-catching back last year, tallying 67 targets, 53 catches, 402 yards and 4 TDs. Those marks ranked 7th, 7th, 6th and 3rd among RBs.
  • Among 41 RBs with 30+ targets, he ranked …
    • 16th in yards per target
    • 15th in yards per route run
    • 7th in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades
  • Edmonds wasn’t as busy on the ground, carrying just 97 times to Kenyan Drake’s 239.
  • But Edmonds averaged 4.6 yards per carry to Drake’s 4.0.
  • He didn’t fare as well in advanced rushing metrics, though. Among 76 RBs with 50+ carries, Edmonds ranked just 52nd in Elusive Rating and 63rd in Pro Football Focus’ rushing grades.
  • Drake departed in free agency this offseason. He tallied 239 carries and 31 targets last year. That was 49.9% of Arizona’s carries and 5.4% of the targets.
  • The Cardinals signed RB James Conner to a 1-year, $1.75 million deal in April.
    • Conner had an impressive 2018 season in Pittsburgh but has missed 9 games and averaged a mediocre 4.2 yards per carry over the past 2 years.
    • He caught 124 balls over the last 3 seasons, including 35 in 13 games last year. But he ranked just 35th in yards per route run and 32nd in PFF’s receiving grades among those 41 RBs with 30+ targets. Edmonds easily beat him in both metrics.
    • Conner was the more effective runner last year, beating Edmonds in Elusive Rating and PFF rushing grade.
    • At 233 pounds, Conner has more than 20 pounds on Edmonds. That makes him the favorite to win goal-line duties. Edmonds received just 1 carry inside the 5-yard line last year.
  • The Cardinals upgraded the offensive line by trading a 3rd-round pick to Vegas for C Rodney Hudson, who ranked 8th among 32 qualifying Cs in PFF’s 2020 run-blocking grades. That’s a big improvement over last year’s starter, Mason Cole, who ranked 21st.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

The Cardinals parted ways with Kenyan Drake but signed James Conner this offseason. So we’re likely looking at another committee backfield in 2021.

Edmonds finished 25th among RBs in PPR points and 30th in non-PPR on 97 carries and 67 targets last year. We’re expecting him to remain Arizona’s primary pass-catching back and post a similar target number this season. And he could take on a bigger ball-carrying load considering Conner has struggled with injuries and efficiency the past 2 years.

Edmonds has RB2 potential in PPR leagues. Consider him a RB3 in non-PPR.
