BAL RB Gus Edwards - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Gus Edwards had 12 carries and 66 yards last week against the Browns, filling in for Mark Ingram after a calf injury sidelined him. Edwards has been productive when called upon to start, topping 100 yards in three of seven starts last season and he’s averaged 5.2 yards per carry in supplemental action this year.
This week, Edwards has a tough matchup against a Steelers defense that ranks fourth in aFPA to opposing running backs this season. Still, he’s worth considering in deeper leagues as Ingram is likely to miss the season finale. Edwards could wind up with double-digit touches, and if that’s the case, he’s a productive enough runner to put up solid numbers for needy owners as an RB2 option.
