Is Chase Edmonds enjoying on Monday evening?
Edmonds (ankle) hasn’t performed since Week 9, however after being designated to return from IR on Thursday, many anticipated him to go well with up on Monday evening in opposition to the Rams. Actually, Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury implied last week that Edmonds would return for this recreation. Nonetheless, Arizona has till Monday afternoon to activate Edmonds, and it apparently needs to attend till then earlier than making an official determination.
It nonetheless appears doubtless that Edmonds will play, however given the uncertainty of the scenario mixed with Edmonds comparatively low ceiling (and mediocre ground in commonplace leagues), fantasy house owners can be clever to maintain Edmonds on their benches for no less than another week. There aren’t many viable pivots if Edmonds is said out, as you’d need to depend on a dangerous WR, akin to Rondale Moore or A.J. Inexperienced on your flex spot. When you want an RB, you’d doubtless be decreased to Eno Benjamin or Mekhi Sargent.
With only one TD this yr, Edmonds is merely a solid-floor flex in PPR leagues. In a tricky matchup like this the place he might see restricted touches, Edmonds merely is not value ready for.
