Draft note
by John Paulsen
With Austin Ekeler vacating 230 touches, the Chargers had a big need at running back and Gus Edwards can run the ball. Prior to 2023, Edwards had never averaged less than 5.0 yards per carry, though he posted a career-low 4.1 yards per carry last season. Jim Harbaugh likes to run the ball, so Edwards could be the centerpiece of the rushing attack or perhaps part of a 1-2 punch in the backfield with either J.K. Dobbins or rookie Kimani Vidal. Entering his age-29 season, he should have a couple of productive seasons left.

BAL RB Gus Edwards - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Miami Dolphins

Gus Edwards was limited to nine carries and a reception against the 49ers on Monday night, but he finished with 70 yards from scrimmage and his 12th touchdown of the season. Edwards continues to get short-yardage touches and he’s found the end zone in two straight games, and in seven of his last nine.

This week, Edwards faces a tough Miami run defense that ranks second in aFPA to opposing running backs. Edwards’ propensity to find the end zone makes him a viable low-end RB2 option, but his upside is capped by his timeshare with Justice Hill and limited work in the passing game.
