Each NFL team is its own fantasy football organism. Will they thrive or die in 2018? This series outlines the critical questions for each team across their skill position depth charts. In this edition: NFC West
Who is the backup running back to own in Arizona?
David Johnson returns from injury as the offensive centerpiece for the Cardinals, but without Adrian Peterson, Andre Ellington, and other previous bigger names at the position, the rest of the depth chart is barren in 2018 by comparison. D.J. Foster has the most incumbent experience on the roster, but he offers like potential beyond being a slightly above-average receiver. T.J. Logan returns from a rookie season injury. Logan is sub-sized at less than 200 pounds but ran a 4.37 40-yard-dash and elite 3-cone time. Logan offers an explosive quality to the backfield not seen in a few years. Arizona also drafted Chase Edmonds early on Day 3 this offseason. Edmonds is a poor man's version of Danny Woodhead, a small school elite producer with a long track record as a lead back despite lacking prototypical size.
Verdict: Edmonds lacks better than mid-4.5s speed and is an average athlete otherwise. Logan offers more upside in an ancillary role, but Edmonds has the much better profile to be used as a spot starter in David Johnson misses time.
