Draft note
by John Paulsen
Edwards enters RB2 territory now that it appears that Dobbins is done for the year. The Ravens typically utilize a committee in the backfield, so Edwards is not a shoo-in for the 17-20 touches that typically lead to an RB1 season. However, he does have RB1 upside if the team utilizes him in the red zone as Dobbins was down the stretch. Dobbins scored nine touchdowns in the team's final eight games, including the playoffs. Ravens running backs combined to score 17 touchdowns during the regular season, so if Edwards sees 70% of those scores, he could find the end zone 10+ times. Since 2018, in the 21 games where Edwards has seen at least nine carries, he has averaged 14.8 touches (14.3 carries) for 74 yards and 0.29 touchdowns per game. He had the No. 4 PFF run grade last season and has finished 19th or higher in that metric in each of the last three seasons. He owns the fifth-highest yards per carry (5.18) from 2019-20. He hasn't been a big part of the passing game, but he has caught 18-of-22 career targets (81.8% catch rate) for 10.8 yards per catch. In other words, it's not that he can't catch the ball–it's that he hasn't been asked to thus far in his career. In June, Jeff Zrebiec reported that the Ravens were emphasizing getting the backs more involved in the passing game. Whether that translates to Edwards remains to be seen. Ty'son Williams is apparently the frontrunner for the backup job over Justice Hill, per beat writer Jamison Hensley. Edwards' ADP is likely to rise into the fourth round, which is fair. He's a great target in the fifth round, though he carries more value in standard and half-PPR formats than in full-PPR leagues.
