WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds is signing with the Dolphins on a two-year, $12.6-million deal.

Miami is striking quickly on a lead back for Mike McDaniel, and the new head coach saw Edmonds up close in the Niners' matchups with Arizona. The soon-to-be 26-year-0ld has totaled 850+ yards in back-to-back seasons for the Cardinals, so he should have a solid floor as at least a strong FLEX option assuming no other big moves—like an early draft selection at the position—are made by the Dolphins. For those making moves in dynasty leagues, it is worth noting that the 2022 draft class is very deep at running back, including some early-down complements the team might consider pairing with Edmonds.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (ribs/toe) will not play in Week 18.

Edmonds is banged up and will miss the regular season finale against the Seahawks, but we'd think he'll be good to go for the start of the postseason. Edmonds' regular season ends with 116 carries for 592 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns along with 43 receptions for 311 receiving yards. The versatile running back again ran well (averaging 5.1 yards per carry) and was a strong piece in the Arizona offense, but James Conner's outstanding touchdown-making season made it difficult for Edmonds to supply high-end fantasy value in 2021.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

The Cardinals designated Chase Edmonds (ankle) for return from injured reserve.

The Week 14 Monday night game against the Rams was the earliest Edmonds would be able to return from injured reserve, and it looks like he has a good shot to do so, as was the hope when he was placed on IR a few weeks ago. Edmonds now has 21 days before he must be activated (or spend the rest of the year on injured reserve), and he can be activated on gameday to play in Week 14.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

The Cardinals are placing Chase Edmonds (ankle) on injured reserve.

With Edmonds dealing with a high-ankle sprain, this was expected. Edmonds is now out at least the next three games, but he should have a chance to be back after three games, especially because Arizona has a bye coming up. Tavien Feaster is being promoted to the Cardinals active roster as a corresponding move.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds suffered a high-ankle sprain.

The MRI confirmed the initial fear, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Edmonds has dealt with injuries throughout his career and has found a way to play through them, but when he left yesterday's Week 9 win over the Niners early it was unfortunately for a high-ankle sprain. This will knock Edmonds out for multiple weeks, and expect the dynamic running back to be placed on injured reserve (forcing him out at least three games). James Conner, who leads the league with 11 touchdowns this season, is now set for more touches and should be in must-start status in all fantasy leagues.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds is feared to be dealing with a high-ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Edmonds was knocked out of Sunday's game following just one touch, and it sounds like he is dealing with an injury that could will lead to multiple games missed. The news arguably elevates James Conner—coming off a three-touchdown performance—into the RB1 ranks for Arizona's offense, and second-year back Eno Benjamin is also worth a look on waivers after impressing on a touchdown run yesterday. Even if we don't see him for the rest of the month, Edmonds remains a definite hold in all leagues.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (shoulder) is officially active for Week 5.

Edmonds was officially listed as questionable on Friday, but he was expected to push through this shoulder issue. Expect him to get around his usual number of snaps while working in tandem with James Conner in the Arizona backfield.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday.

Edmonds is expected to go for Sunday’s matchup against the 49ers, but Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury says he's a game-time decision, and it’s a good idea to track his status and try to have a backup plan from the later slate of games if you’re planning to use the versatile running back in your Week 5 lineup.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (hip) has been ruled out for the rest of today.

Edmonds’ afternoon ends with two receptions for eight yards after leaving in the first half. Edmonds was already dealing with a couple of injuries entering today, and hopefully he’s feeling better soon.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (hip) is questionable to return for the Cardinals.

Edmonds is headed to the locker room, which probably isn’t a great sign. We’ll see if there’s an update on Edmonds to start the second half.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (ankle) is officially active against the Eagles.

Edmonds was considered questionable all week, but he’s been expected to be on the field for the Cardinals. Kenyan Drake is the preferred fantasy option among Arizona running backs for Week 15.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Week 15.

Edmonds will likely be limited in practice throughout the week, and he’s set to be listed as questionable when the final injury report is out on Friday. If Edmonds is out, Kenyan Drake might get a heavier workload than usual for Arizona.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (hamstring) officially remains out of practice.

There was some hope that Edmonds would return this week against the 49ers, but the second-year running back said today that he's expecting to return after the team's Week 12 bye week. We'll let you know if anything changes, but expect Edmonds to be out this week with a good chance to return to the field in Week 13. The addition of Kenyan Drake complicates things, but Edmonds is not a bad stash as someone that could get a good amount of playing time to end the season.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for Week 10.

Edmonds did not practice all week and is considered week-to-week with his hamstring injury. This is the second-year running back's second consecutive missed game. It'll be David Johnson and Kenyan Drake both getting a good amount of work this Sunday against the Buccaneers. Edmonds does not need to be held in redraft leagues after the addition of Drake.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (hamstring) will not play tomorrow night.

This was expected after Edmonds injured his hamstring a few days ago. The second-year running back is considered week-to-week for now. David Johnson (ankle) does appear to have a chance to play tomorrow night, but we'll see how he's listed when the final Week 9 injury report is released later today.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (hamstring) is likely out a few weeks, according to Tom Pelissero.

A multi-game absence for Edmonds certainly makes more sense of the landing spot for Kenyan Drake with David Johnson (ankle) also banged up, and the second-year back may suddenly not even be worth rostering for those who can't stash him on IR. That said, if there's a stretch for him to miss, this would be it with two games against San Francisco and one against Tampa Bay.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (hamstring) did not return for the Cardinals

Before leaving Edmonds had seven carries for just eight yards along with two receptions for five yards, as the Saints did an excellent job of shutting down one of the stars from last week. With a short week coming up (a Halloween matchup versus the 49ers on Thursday night), it might be difficult for Edmonds to be active for Week 9. David Johnson (ankle) also remains uncertain, so hopefully Arizona can get at least one of those guys active as they look to upset San Francisco.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (hamstring) is officially questionable to return for the Cardinals.

Edmonds has struggled to get much going against the Saints, and now he's dealing with a hamstring issue with the Cardinals down by 15 points in the fourth quarter. We'll update you when more information becomes available on Edmonds' status.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds goes off in Week 7.

Edmonds carried 27 times for 126 yards and three touchdowns along with two receptions for 24 yards in the Cardinals' victory over the Giants. All three of Edmonds touchdowns were 20+ yard scores, and he became just the sixth player in NFL history with three 20+ yard rushing touchdowns in a game (and the first since Doug Martin in 2012). And Edmonds went to school in the Bronx at Fordham, so it must have felt great to play exceptionally well in the New York/New Jersey game. Coming into the game, David Johnson (ankle) was active and appeared set to get his usual workload, but Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said after the game that DJ would be used in only an emergency situation, so it was Edmonds that unexpectedly carried the load for Arizona while most people had Johnson in lineups and Edmonds on the bench. Hopefully there's more clarity on the backfield situation for next week against the Saints, but it won't be surprising if the Cardinals don't shed any light on Johnson's status. The bottom line is Edmonds has earned a bigger role in the Cardinals backfield with his play this season and should be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Kliff Kinsgsbury says Chase Edmonds will have a "really nice role" in his offense.

The Cardinals first-year head coach called Edmonds "a really good player. I've been surprised at his ability as a pass catcher." Kingsbury did add that "[starter] David [Johnson] could have a pretty extensive role in this offense, and we want him fresh, and we want him at his best, whether we're asking him to carry it 35 times a game or catch ten passes, so we've just got to kind of see how the numbers shake out." Basically, Arizona is expected to run a bunch of plays this season (over 90 per game has been talked about, but that might be a stretch), and Johnson isn't going to be able to handle all of the backfield touches; Edmonds is fully expected to be his primary backup and could easily get double-digit touches per game this season.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds gets eight touches against the Seahawks.

Edmonds carried six times for 14 yards and caught two passes for four yards in the Cardinals' Week 17 loss. The rookie running back's first NFL season ends with 60 carries for 208 yards and two touchdowns along with 20 receptions for 103 yards. Edmonds will almost certainly enter 2019 as the clear backup and handcuff to David Johnson, but he could be more involved with a new coaching staff.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds handles five touches in Week 16 loss.

Edmonds rushed four times for 20 yards, also adding a one-yard reception. The rookie will look to make an impact in the season finale, but he won't be a recommended option against the Seahawks.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds handles ten touches in Week 16 loss.

Edmonds rushed eight times for 22 yards and caught two passes for 22 yards. The rookie was only out-touched by David Johnson 14-10 in a blowout, but he remains just a low-upside handcuff over the final two weeks of the year.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds rushed three times for 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Edmonds isn't a recommended fantasy option behind David Johnson on the league's worst offense.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds scores first career touchdowns in Cardinals' win.

Edmonds had a spectacular game to help lead the Cardinals to a big win in Lambeau Field, as he carried five times for 53 yards and two touchdowns along with two receptions for 13 yards. Both scores were from eight yards, as Edmonds received opportunities to finish off drives with David Johnson on the bench. Congrats to Edmonds on his first NFL scores, and hopefully they are the first of many. Edmonds remains a handcuff to Johnson for fantasy purposes, but this was an excellent performance that must make the Cardinals feel good about drafting him.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds rushed five times for zero yards in Sunday’s loss to the Chargers.

Edmonds had no room to run, and he wasn’t targeted in the passing game. The rookie backup is nothing more than a handcuff on an underperforming offense, so he doesn’t need to be owned as the fantasy playoffs near/begin. 

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds gets five carries in Week 11.

Edmonds gained 17 yards on his five attempts against the Cardinals. The rookie running back is not a fantasy option while spelling David Johnson.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds gets two carries in Week 10.

Edmonds gained seven yards on his two attempts, including a carry deep in the red zone in the third quarter, but David Johnson (28 touches, two touchdowns) then punched it in for six. The rookie running back is just a handcuff for Johnson at the moment.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds gets three carries in Week 8.

Edmonds carried twice for nine yards and added one reception for 12 yards against the Niners. The rookie running back was in for much of the game-winning drive for Arizona late in the game while David Johnson was being checked for a concussion, but DJ was able to check back in. Edmonds remains a Johnson handcuff for now.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds handles eight touches in loss to the Broncos.

Edmonds rushed five times for nine yards and caught three passes for 12 yards. The rookie runner isn't a recommended bench stash in redraft leagues as a handcuff on the league's worst offense.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds handles one touch in loss to the Vikings.

It was a four-yard carry, and the rookie wasn't targeted in the passing game. Edmonds doesn't need to be owned as a handcuff on a bad offense.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (back) is active for Week 6.

Edmonds should be ready to back up David Johnson today versus the Vikings, but he's not a recommended fantasy option for the matchup.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds (back) is listed as questionable for Week 6.

After no practice designation the last two days, Edmonds was limited in the final practice of the week. He's likely a game-time call, but the rookie running back is not an advisable fantasy option even if he is active on Sunday.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds gets one carry in Week 5.

Edmonds' lone touch went for -1 yards. The rookie running back isn't a reliable fantasy option at the moment.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds rushed three times for one yard in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

Arizona wisely fed David Johnson in a 20-17 defeat, and that should remain the case every week if they don't want to remain the only winless team in the NFL. Edmonds is just a handcuff that's seen his stock take a hit on an underperforming offense.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds gets five carries against the Bears.

Edmonds gained ten yards on his five attempts, and he didn't have a reception in the Week 3 loss. Surprisingly, the rookie running back was in the game on a key third-and-two run late in the game,  but there was no push up front and he lost yardage. Edmonds isn't a recommended fantasy option as long as the offense continues to struggle.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds gets six touches in Week 2.

Edmonds had one carry for five yards and five receptions for 15 yards in the Cardinals' shutout loss to the Rams. The rookie running back is not a fantasy option at the moment, especially for an offense that's struggling to block and move the ball.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds gets eight touches in NFL debut.

The rookie running back was the clear No. 2 behind David Johnson, just as he had been in the preseason. Edmonds had four carries for 24 rushing yards and four receptions for 24 receiving yards in the Week 1 loss to the Redskins. Edmonds has a role on offense, but he's not a recommended fantasy option as long as DJ remains on the field.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

Chase Edmonds appears to be the clear number two running back for the Cardinals.

The fourth-round rookie has been getting most of the second-team reps for Arizona, and he's been the one filling in for David Johnson with the first-team offense when DJ sits. Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks called Edmonds "a solid three-down back" because he can run between the tackles, is good in protection, and can split out at receiver. Meanwhile, Johnson says he believes Edmonds is smarter than he was as a rookie and believes the Patriot League's all-time leading rusher will be "great." Also, offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has been getting both Johnson and Edmonds on the field at the same time for certain plays. Edmonds looks like the clear handcuff to Johnson this season, and he could deliver some value in very deep fantasy leagues.

Chase Edmonds | Dolphins RB

The Cardinals have selected Fordham running back Chase Edmonds wth the 134th pick (fourth round) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Edmonds is an excellent change-of-pace option for David Johnson as a player that can do a lot of damage in space with great quickness. However, Johnson won’t leave the field much for Arizona, so Edmonds doesn’t have a lot of upside as a rookie if the superstar starter stays healthy.
