Wildcard Round vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Gus Edwards had only 12 carries for 76 yards last week against the Browns, but he averaged 6.3 yards per carry, helping him to a 5.2-yard season average, fifth in the league among qualified rushers. Edwards’ production has helped him maintain a steady workload through the second half of the season, and he should continue to get plenty of two-down work in the Ravens’ rushing attack throughout the playoffs.
This week, Edwards faces a Chargers defense that has allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. Edwards ran for 92 yards and caught a 13-yard pass – only his second reception of the season – when these two teams faced off two weeks ago, and his production this week should be similar. Edwards is a solid RB2 option with a high floor and a low ceiling this week.
