BAL RB Gus Edwards - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Cincinnati Bengals
Gus Edwards actually led the team in carries last week with 15 for 85 yards, but that was largely due to the Ravens playing in positive game script after getting up 20-3 at the half. Edwards also added 37 yards on a pair of receptions, turning in a double-digit fantasy day for the third time in his last four games.
Edwards faces a surging Bengals team coming off two consecutive wins, but one that just gave up big points to David Johnson in a thrilling victory over the Texans last week. If the Ravens can get up early again, expect Gus to get double-digit touches, giving him upside as an RB3 in standard formats. He’s risky because of his inconsistent workload, but even in closer games, he seems to get at least seven carries most of the time, and he’s always a threat around the goal line.
