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.
Dolphins RB Chase Edmonds is adjusting to an outside zone running game for the first time in his career. “In college, I was predominantly inside zone,” Edmonds said. “High school, inside zone. The NFL with Arizona, inside zone. But here outside zone.” As for what’s different, here’s Edmonds’ take. “[I’m] just getting used to the wider tracks… the cuts are going to be at different angles and the lanes are going to be at different angles. The flow of the ‘backers are different because in inside zone, it’s more slow to fast, where I can pitter-patter my steps. Outside zone here, it’s kind of like you’re riding a wave. Once you hit that wave, you’ve got to hit it and go. I’m getting used to that.” We’ll monitor Edmonds’ transition this summer. But with new HC Mike McDaniel in charge, we fully expect a more dynamic Dolphins run game.
The Dolphins signed RB Chase Edmonds to a 2-year deal worth $12.6 million ($6.1 million guaranteed). Edmonds gives a barren Miami backfield some much-needed speed (and skill). In 2021, he set career highs in carries (116) and yards (592) while matching a career-high in YPC (5.1). The 26-year-old (in April) has also racked up 96 catches over the past 2 years. Miami might still address RB with a top-3 round pick in the draft, but for now, Edmonds is the clear lead RB.
Cardinals RBs Chase Edmonds (ribs, toe) and James Conner (ribs) are active for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Rams. Edmonds looks like the healthier of the 2 after getting in a full practice on Saturday and being left off the final injury report. Conner only got in a limited practice on Saturday and was listed as questionable.
Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ribs, toe) won't play vs. the Seahawks this weekend, HC Kliff Kingsbury said Friday. Edmonds didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday, and this early rule-out puts his status for the opening round of the playoffs in question. Assuming RB James Conner's heel is reasonably healthy, he'll carry big upside in Week 18 fantasy lineups. We'll get another update on Conner later today.
Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ribs, toe) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. RB James Conner (heel) remained limited but suddenly looks like the healthier RB in Arizona. We'll see what these guys do on Friday and how they're listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game vs. Seattle.
