News: 4 days agoEdmonds rushed once for 11 yards and failed to bring in his only target in the Buccaneers' 27-20 loss to the Colts on Sunday.
Spin: The reserve running back saw just five snaps on offense compared to 10 on special teams, underscoring how dominant a grip Rachaad White retains on the No. 1 role in Tampa Bay's backfield. Edmonds hasn't even been able to take advantage of the Buccaneers' frequent negative game scripts over their multi-week struggles, as White is a highly capable receiver in his own right and therefore often negates the need for Edmonds to be deployed on passing downs.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Edmonds signed with Tampa Bay after failing to make a mark with Denver and Miami last season. In a combined 13 games with the two clubs, Edmonds was limited to 402 yards (his fewest since his rookie season in Arizona in 2018) and three TDs on 84 touches. The 27-year-old peaked with a 25th-place fantasy campaign in 2020, which was fueled by a 53-402-4 receiving line (he finished top 7 among RBs in receptions, receiving yards and receiving TDs). Edmonds is positioned for a rebound campaign and he battles with second-year Rachaad White for work in the Tampa Bay backfield. Standalone value is unlikely in an offense likely to struggle, but Edmonds may find his way to insurance value in deeper formats.
