Scouting report

TB RB Chase Edmonds - 2023 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Chase Edmonds had 903 scrimmage yards in 2021 before heading to Miami last season. He couldn’t quite find a role in Miami so he was traded to Denver. Heading into 2023, Edmonds joins a decent situation in Tampa Bay. He’ll likely play handcuff again, but with Leonard Fournette out of the picture, there should be a good role for Edmonds with the Bucs. Fournette is leaving behind 73 receptions, and in Edmonds final two seasons with the Cardinals he had 96 receptions for 713 yards.

Fantasy Downside
Edmonds didn’t look great last season, spending time on two teams. He averaged just 3.6 yards per carry after averaging 4.7 ypc during his time in Arizona. And while he likely will have a role as a handcuff player, the Bucs have a clear RB1 in Rachaad White. And White proved to be a capable receiving threat himself, so Edmonds doesn’t offer up much of a different skill set for the Bucs.

2023 Bottom Line
Edmonds isn’t much more than a late-round flier in redraft leagues this season. He’ll mostly be a handcuff back for White managers, or league managers hoping for a White injury. Edmonds could have some value as a bye-week filler depending on just how much he gets used in the Bucs offense, but for now he doesn’t offer a ton of value. We have him projected around 600-700 scrimmage yards.

DEN RB Chase Edmonds - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Kansas City Chiefs
Chase Edmonds looks locked into a third-down and pass catching role out of the Broncos' backfield, but he is still ceding early-down carries to Latavius Murray in a completely dysfunctional offense. Edmonds projects for extra work this week with the Broncos projected to get destroyed by the Chiefs, but he is not someone to count on for reliable fantasy production in his current environment.

MIA RB Chase Edmonds - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Detroit Lions

Chase Edmonds saw a decrease in playing time last week, but an increase in touches. He played on just 18 offensive snaps (29%), and ran the ball seven times for 17 yards. Edmonds saw two targets out of the backfield, but failed to get a catch. Heading into the season, we thought Miami would lean on Edmonds as a receiving threat, but he has just 10 total receptions through seven games. Edmonds gets a great matchup this week against the Lions, but he's not quite seeing enough touches to make him a viable option. We wouldn't consider playing Edmonds in Week 8.

MIA RB Chase Edmonds - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

After Chase Edmonds was barely utilized in Week 5 (he saw just 10 offensive snaps), he came back with a decent performance in Week 6. Edmonds ran the ball twice for three yards and caught both of his two targets for 28 yards. More importantly, he played on 40% of the offensive snaps, which is the most he's seen in a game since Week 3. While he saw some increased usage, Edmonds still isn't quite seeing enough touches to make him relevant in fantasy. We probably wouldn't fully cut ties with him, unless you play in shallow leagues, but he's likely best left on your bench for Week 7.

MIA RB Chase Edmonds - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at New York Jets

Chase Edmonds found the end zone again last week, but that's about all he did. Edmonds played a season-low 28% of the offensive snaps (his previous low was 44%) and had just 20 scrimmage yards on seven touches. After seeing 12 carries in Week 1, Edmonds has seen five, six and five carries in the games that followed. He also hasn't been the PPR threat we expected with just eight receptions through four games. He remains a red zone threat, but his lack of production elsewhere is concerning, as is his decreased playing time. He'll be a low-end RB3 or flex play this week in a decent matchup vs. the Jets.

MIA RB Chase Edmonds - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Cincinnati Bengals

In a general sense, Chase Edmonds did not play well last week. In a fantasy sense, he had a good game as he managed to find the end zone twice on short goal line carries. Outside of the two scores, though, Edmonds didn't provide much. He ran just six times for 21 yards and had just one target, which he caught for six yards. He was also out-snapped by Raheem Mostert (24-19) and out-touched (8-7). Edmonds has provided very little to start the season, rushing a combined 23 times for just 79 yards through three games. He gets a fairly tough matchup against the Bengals this week, who are giving up an average of 68 rush yards to running backs this year. With the matchups, his limited touches, and split duties with Mostert, it's hard to get very excited about Edmonds. He'll be a low-end flex play in Week 4.

MIA RB Chase Edmonds - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Buffalo Bills

Chase Edmonds wasn't utilized much in Week 2, which is disappointing considering the Dolphins scored 42 points. Edmonds finished with five carries for 33 yards (with a long of 28) and had three targets, catching just one pass for eight yards. The good news is he was still involved in the offense, playing on 51% of the offensive snaps. The bad news is he wasn't productive, and Raheem Mostert ended up with more touches (14). Edmonds gets a tough matchup vs. the Bills this week, so we're not projecting a great game for him. He should be viewed as a low-end flex play in Week 3.
