Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (knee) has officially been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will have season-ending surgery. Edwards was expected to take the lead role with J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Justice Hill (achilles) both sidelined for the season, but caught a tough break in practice and what was feared as a torn ACL has now been confirmed. The Ravens backfield is currently in shambles and they have signed veteran running backs Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman in the past 24 hours. Bell and Freeman were both signed to the practice squad, but there is a good chance that one or both of them could be active for Week 1. For now, Ty'Son Williams appears to be in line for the most carries in Week 1 versus the Las Vegas Raiders. Both Bell and Freeman struggled in 2020 and Williams offers the most upside at the moment.
The Baltimore Ravens fear running back Gus Edwards (ACL) suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's practice. The Ravens' backfield has been destroyed by injuries and have now lost running backs J.K. Dobbins (knee), Justice Hill (Achilles), and Edwards for the season. Edwards and defensive back Marcus Peters sustained severe knee injuries in back-to-back plays in Thursday's practice. Ty'Son Williams is expected to replace the 26-year-old as the Ravens' primary running back and should be rostered in all league formats. The Ravens also signed veteran RBs Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman for the time being. Bell and Freeman should be rostered in most league formats with Thursday's crushing news.
Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman made it clear that running back Gus Edwards is in line for a lot of work this year. On Tuesday, Roman told the media, "He's our kind of guy. He's built for what we do." With J.K. Dobbins (knee) out for the year, Edwards is in position to have a fantastic season as the No. 1 back in a run-heavy offense. The 26-year-old Edwards has averaged 5.2 yards per carry over his three-year career and already has experience as the No. 1 back for the Ravens. He's a great RB2 target in the third or fourth round of fantasy drafts.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards got a few touches on Saturday during the preseason win over the Washington Football Team, finishing with two carries for 27 yards. While he wasn't anticipated to get much work in this one, things may change dramatically during the regular season, primarily if J.K. Dobbins (knee) misses time moving ahead after being carted off the field because of a left knee injury. Managers who have Dobbins on the roster should automatically grab Edwards if he is still available, although that's unlikely at this point.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards made an appearance during Saturday's preseason win over the Panthers. Edwards received only four carries but still managed to rack up 28 yards to finish with an impressive 7.0 YPC. Still, the 26-year-old didn't need to do much to cement his spot as the No. 2 option on the depth chart anyway, as he currently sits comfortably behind J.K. Dobbins. However, Edwards should be viewed as more than just an insurance policy, especially since he should get plenty of touches and scoring chances in the Ravens' run-heavy offensive approach. His stock would increase even more if Dobbins were to succumb to an injury at some point during the 2021-22 campaign.
The Baltimore Ravens placed a second-round tender on impending free-agent running back Gus Edwards on Wednesday. The team also placed tenders on center Trystan Colon-Castillo and linebacker Kristian Welch. Baltimore would clearly like to bring Edwards back after he led the team with 144 carries for 723 yards and six rushing touchdowns in 2020. The Ravens still have J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill in the backfield after cutting veteran Mark Ingram II, but Edwards should remain the primary back heading into the 2021 season. "Gus is going to be on the team, one way or the other," general manager Eric DeCosta said Tuesday. "We're going to certainly tender him if we don't get a long-term deal done, but he is a Raven. He played his butt off this year, and he had a good season for us."
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards finished with eight carries for 38 yards during the win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Despite getting a carry less than J.K. Dobbins, the rookie was more efficient between the two by racking up 43 yards and a touchdown. With Lamar Jackson and Dobbins working as the team's featured backs, Edwards has been relegated to an afterthought. While the upside is still there, he will be a risky option in any fantasy contest in the Ravens' next postseason matchup.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards still has upside on Sunday against Tennessee. While J.K. Dobbins has been the preferred option out of the backfield, especially after finding the end zone in each of his previous six outings, Edwards continues to get his touches. With the Ravens committed to getting things done on the run, there should be plenty of work to go around on the ground for Edwards, Dobbins, and Lamar Jackson to be relevant from a fantasy standpoint during the Wild Card encounter with the Titans.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards finished with 60 yards off 12 carries during the win over the Bengals in Week 17. He also had a catch for 10 yards. Edwards continued to split time with Lamar Jackson and J.K. Dobbins on Sunday. However, it was the rookie who made the biggest impact on the ground by racking up 160 yards and two touchdowns on the afternoon. Although the 25-year-old had arguably the best season of his career, he may have more value in 2021 on a different team, primarily if he isn't involved in a timeshare. Nonetheless, regardless of where he ends up, he is a serviceable fantasy option who will likely retain late-round value in fantasy drafts during the offseason.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (back) is expected to play against the Bengals in Week 17. Edwards is seemingly on the right side of questionable after getting a limited practice in on Friday. The 25-year-old exceeded 100 scrimmage yards last week and has seen a bigger role with Mark Ingram II essentially relegated to the bench. Edwards will be sharing backfield duties with J.K. Dobbins but should have some upside against the Bengals' 25th-ranked run defense. Both backs should be looked at as fringe RB2s.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards racked up 85 yards off 15 attempts during the win over the Giants on Sunday. He also caught both of his targets for 37 yards. Although the 25-year-old didn't find the end zone like J.K. Dobbins did in Week 16, he still provided adequate support for fantasy managers in deeper formats. He may concede touches once again to Dobbins and Lamar Jackson in the regular-season finale against Cincinnati, but he still has flex appeal, nonetheless, as he is always a threat to score.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards had 42 yards off nine carries during the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. He also caught both of his targets for 36 yards. Although the 25-year-old conceded touches to J.K. Dobbins and Lamar Jackson, who combined for 24 attempts for 99 yards and two touchdowns, he remained involved, much to the delight of his fantasy managers. Although he will likely remain locked in a timeshare with Dobbins and Jackson for the remainder of the year, there still should be plenty of snaps to go around as the team continues to rely heavily on the run.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards has fantasy value despite conceding carries to J.K. Dobbins and Lamar Jackson from week-to-week. The 25-year-old has only 23 carries over his previous three outings, but he has racked up three touchdowns during that same span. Despite his low volume of carries, the Ravens appear committed to running the ball, so Edwards is still a sufficient option in all formats based on his high ceiling and potential to find the end zone. Fantasy managers should keep him in mind against the horrendous Jacksonville Jaguars Defense in Week 15.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards ran for 49 yards and two touchdowns off of seven attempts during the win over Cleveland in Week 14. He also added a catch for four yards. Although the 25-year-old conceded carries to rookie J.K. Dobbins on Monday night, he was still more efficient by maintaining an impressive 7.0 YPC. He has now found the end zone three times in his previous three outings. With the Ravens committed to attacking utilizing the run, there is no reason for Edwards not to be starting in fantasy lineups against the Jaguars next weekend. Keep him rolling in all formats.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards ran for 101 yards off seven attempts during the Week 13 win over the Cowboys. Despite a low number of carries, the 23-year-old put forth a solid effort, thanks in part to a 36-yard run early in the second quarter and an impressive 14.4 YPC. While he still conceded carries to the trio of Lamar Jackson, J.K. Dobbins, and Mark Ingram II, fantasy managers were likely pleased with the finished product. Edwards and company will next meet with the Browns for Monday Night Football. He remains a borderline flex option with upside for those with nowhere else to turn, primarily since the timeshare in the backfield should continue moving ahead.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards got a crack at the lead back role in Week 12 with J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram II on the COVID list. He responded with 10 yards on nine carries, though he did find the end zone once. Edwards has finished with two yards per carry or fewer in four of the last six games, and while he continues to get some red zone work, the fact that Justice Hill had the same number of carries as him last week shows just how limited his upside is. Even against a Cowboys Defense allowing the second-most rushing yards in the league, Edwards is a touchdown-dependent RB4.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards will likely serve as the team's workhorse in Week 12 against a tough Steelers Defense. With J.K. Dobbins (illness) and Mark Ingram II (illness) both testing positive for COVID-19, the former Scarlet Knight's fantasy stock is the highest it's been all year. Although Justice Hill will be around the gobble some snaps on Thanksgiving, Edwards should still handle most of the snaps out of the backfield in both the run and passing game. While the matchup against Pittsburgh isn't favorable for anyone, the 25-year-old should still be a suitable waiver-wire option and a value play in DFS formats.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards rushed three times for six yards in Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans. He was on the field for just 13 snaps. Maybe it was a one-game blip, or maybe J.K. Dobbins has assumed the lead running back role in Baltimore and isn't going to give it back. Don't drop Edwards, who still has deep league value thanks to his ability to find his way into the end zone, but it might be a good idea to keep him on the bench in Week 12.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards could be a significant fantasy contributor if he was not part of a three-headed, by-committee backfield monster that the Ravens have created. Even though he was the team's leading running back rusher last week, he still logged just seven carries for 42 yards. With Mark Ingram II on track to suit up versus the Titans on Sunday, fantasy managers should expect more of the same when it comes to a division of labor on carries, severely capping intrigue as it pertains to Edwards. He'll be a touchdown-dependent option in deeper season-long formats or for those fantasy managers desperate for an RB3 that is slated to see at least half a dozen carries.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards finished with 23 yards off 11 attempts during the win over the Colts on Sunday. He also caught two passes for 11 yards. For the second consecutive week, Edwards received an enhanced role due to the absence of Mark Ingram II (ankle), who is considered week-to-week. While he split carries once again with rookie J.K. Dobbins, who had 12 attempts for 30 yards, neither player reached the level of efficiency that they had in Week 8 against the Steelers. Both men should continue to receive touches out of the backfield until Ingram can make his way back, which could come as early as next weekend against the Patriots for a Sunday Night Football showdown. Until then, Edwards and Dobbins should be considered adequate options with upside for those looking to fill an injury or bye week void.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards may split carries once again with J.K. Dobbins against the Colts. With Mark Ingram II (ankle) likely out of the picture on Sunday, Edwards should be of value for those fantasy managers looking to fill a void. The 25-year-old filled in admirably against the Steelers last weekend, finishing with 87 yards and a touchdown off 16 attempts. Though Dobbins could see a few more looks from quarterback Lamar Jackson, making him a more desirable option in PPR leagues, Edwards still a place in all formats in Week 9.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards finished with 16 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown during the loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday. Although the 25-year-old split carries with rookie J.K. Dobbins, he still made the most of his time on the field. With Mark Ingram II (ankle) expected to be out of the mix for a week or more, Edwards could be in store for an expanded workload and increase in fantasy value despite the anticipated timeshare with Dobbins.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards turned 14 carries into 26 yards and a touchdown in a 30-28 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6. Edwards saw some extra work pushed onto his plate after starter Mark Ingram II left during the second quarter with an ankle injury. His touchdown run went for seven yards to cap off a drive at the end of the first quarter. Edwards played ahead of rookie J.K. Dobbins after Ingram's injury, seemingly making him the preferred waiver add if Ingram's ankle were to cause him to miss time. Edwards and the Ravens are on bye in Week 7 before they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards has exceeded expectations in 2020 and is currently the team's most productive option out of the backfield, at least from a yardage standpoint. Despite Mark Ingram II and J.K. Dobbins having more rushing touchdowns, Edwards has a chance to rack up some yards on the ground, albeit not enough to make a dent on the fantasy end in Week 5 against Cincinnati. For those in the deepest of formats, he could have a starting spot in fantasy rosters, but only if managers absolutely have no other alternative.
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards carried the ball nine times for 38 scoreless yards in a 31-17 win over the Washington Football Team in Week 4. Edwards actually led the Baltimore backfield with nine carries in the win, but it was Mark Ingram II who found the end zone in the win over Washington. Edwards has seen more work than most imagined he would this season but his upside is capped thanks to almost no presence in the passing game and a three-man committee in the Baltimore backfield. He will be a low-end flex play for Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals at home.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
