Ravens RB Gus Edwards breaks out in Week 11

Just call Gus Edwards the Ravens’ secret weapon.

Edwards isn’t really a secret anymore after Sunday’s breakout performance – 117 yards on 17 carries that helped the Ravens grind out a 24-21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Ravens dressed four running backs, but Edwards was the one who stood out. In a must-win situation, Edwards became the first Ravens back to rush for more than 100 yards this season.

Fantasy Impact: 

Head coach John Harbaugh went on to say: “Gus was North and South, he’s a physical guy. He’s been practicing really well. When those young guys start practicing well for weeks after weeks, we want to get them out there. Then he was playing well on special teams, so it kind of gave an indication that he was ready. He sure took the bull by the horns.” Edwards' style is something Harbaugh went on to say the team hasn't really had this year, so it seems like Edwards is going to continue to get work moving forward. While it's surely a muddied RB situation in Baltimore, to add an RB at this point of the year with Edwards' kind of potential is a must. It would appear the emergence of Edwards will hurt the fantasy value of Collins the most.
