Draft note
by John Paulsen
Edwards has some appeal as the RB2 in Baltimore. He’s not going to set the world on fire as J.K. Dobbins’ backup, but he has serious upside in the event of a Dobbins injury, and he did score at least 7.0 fantasy points (half-PPR) in 10 of his final 11 games last season after the Ravens put Mark Ingram out to pasture. Edwards scored 10+ in four of those 11 games. He also has the fourth-highest yards per carry (5.18) among running backs with at least 150 carries over the past two seasons.

BAL RB Gus Edwards - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

For a non-starter, Gus Edwards isn’t a bad option to throw in your lineup from time to time. While J.K. Dobbins will be the lead back, Edwards gets work. He only had three games with four or fewer touches last year, and he had double-digit touches in seven games. Edwards has been productive when given the opportunity, averaging 5.2 yards per carry over his three-year career. The Ravens brought him back as a restricted free agent, so he clearly has a role and without Mark Ingram on the roster, he’s the clear-cut change-of-pace back on a team that runs the ball more than any other team in the league.

Fantasy Downside

While Edwards will get work, giving him some nice late-round value, his upside is limited as long as Dobbins is healthy. Edwards will also suffer – along with Dobbins – from Lamar Jackson’s ability to run, particularly in the red zone. Finally, his 18 total receptions in three seasons don’t bode well for him in PPR formats.

2021 Bottom Line

Edwards is a nice high-floor back for fantasy owners, especially considering he’s available in the 10th round of 12 team leagues. He’s a great “won’t get you zero” lineup option, and he carries with him the added bonus of being a stellar handcuff to Dobbins. Should he be thrust into the starting role, he’s shown before he can put up RB2 numbers.
