  1. I actually think Nyheim Hines is quite a bit better than Chase Edmonds.
  2. What world are you living in? Not Planet Earth, year 2021. That's for sure. 3 down back? There are only a handful of those left. Saquon, CMC, Dalvin, maybe Zeke. C"mon man.
  3. Well do you like TDs? Conner is your guy. Looking for a (very) low-end flex in full ppr? Edmonds all the way, until they add even more competition in the draft or right afterwards.
  4. Priority UDFA means one of the best running backs eligible for the 2021 draft who do not get drafted, but get to pick where they sign and they get more of a signing bonus than is typical. Phillip Lindsey on the Broncos, Austin Ekeler for the Chargers, and Arian Foster for the Texans are examples of priority UDFA players who went on to have success in the NFL.
  5. Betcha they will draft a RB or sign a priority UDFA. Edmonds is going to be a bye-week, desperation flex in full ppr leagues only. If that's your keeper, you must be playing in a very deep league indeed.
  6. After Kyler turned his shoulder into hamburger, the Cardinals sank like a stone. I am betting the opposite happens.
  7. After Kyler hurt his shoulder, he stopped running for those 1 yard bunnies and Drake got more of them.
  8. Conner will be a little bit worse Kenyan Drake in 2021 in the unlikely event Conner can stay healthy. Draft both, then trade Edmonds to a gullible league mate after Conner gets hurt but before the next Arizona Cardinals game.
  9. Chase Edmonds is a role player. Not a featured guy. RW, errr. NBC Edge writers need to accept that fact. Chase Edmonds dynasty owners need to accept that fact. Chase Edmonds needs to accept that fact.
  10. Zero RB works better in an auction because you can target players who will be cheap but productive (James Conner 2018) and land them at any point. Since falling victim to David Johnson 2017 and Saquon Barkley 2020, zero-RB is looking better and better. Of course that means hitting on a handcuff who becomes the starter or a lottery pick or two...
  11. You are right. I hate it, but dammit, you are right. Also they lost Bud Dupree so...
  12. I agree. There is actually a pretty big list of experienced RBs who do not currently have a job. Bernard may have been better off taking that paycut, insteading of demanding his release, and heading to the back of the line.
  13. Any team that needs a receiving back and backup could find Gio useful. But I suspect he asked for his release because Cincy asked him to take a pay cut. Not sure how many free agent dollars he will command. And it seems pretty unlikely to me that any NFL team will make him their undisputed starter. So his ceiling is likely committee back that will have stand-alone value only if there are injuries to the backs ahead of him on the depth chart. And floor is waiting to get signed as are Gore, McCoy, Gurley, Le'Veon Bell, etc.
  14. Claypool suspended for 4 games. April Fools
  15. One of the easiest landmines to avoid for the 2021 season. Don't forget that Nagy is an Andy Reid disciple and (tries to) run the same offensive system Damien Williams thrived in for KC the 2018 and 2019 seasons. Monty will be drafted the highest, but I suspect Damien Williams will be the most valuable guy in this backfield.
