Wacker said Harbaugh was asked about Mitchell only getting 4 snaps and 1 touch in the second half. Harbaugh said, “Looking back on it would we have wanted him out there more? Yea.” The post said Harbaugh added the reason why he didn't get more work had to do with being a young guy and the team still working him in. Mitchell again showed big-play ability in Week 10. He had three carries for 34 yards and a touchdown and his only reception of the game went for 32 yards. Mitchell, on three carries, out-rushed Edwards and Hill combined as they only collected 31 yards on 13 carries. Mitchell will remain a risky play outside of deeper leagues until we see him get more work on a regular basis. But if he's still on your wire, now is the time to grab him because that day could be coming soon.
BAL RB Gus Edwards - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 14 vs. Los Angeles Rams
Gus Edwards was held to just 26 yards on eight carries against the Chargers before the bye last week, and he was held out of the end zone for the first time in six weeks. Edwards split time with Keaton Mitchell, whose role seems to be expanding. Mitchell led the Baltimore backfield in both snaps and touches.
This week, Edwards faces a Rams defense that ranks 17th in aFPA to opposing running backs. With a timeshare in play, Edwards should be considered a decent RB3 option, with a little more upside in standard leagues where a touchdown-only player isn’t penalized by not catching passes.
