Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 15 vs ATL (8 / 22 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Edmonds saw a season-high 10 touches in the blowout loss against Atlanta. Edmonds found a backside cut for his lone notable run but was stuffed on interior runs otherwise. Edmonds converted a third down with his best reception but would require a David Johnson injury to be a more than an ancillary option in Arizona's struggling offense.
2018 Week 14 vs DET (3 / 14 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Edmonds saw three carries against Detroit but fumbled on two of them. Fortunately, Arizona recovered both of them including one in the red zone. Edmonds has been used a fair amount in the red zone despite David Johnson being the clear starter. Edmonds would be a high-volume option if Johnson were to miss time but has yet to see more than eight touches in a game this season otherwise.
2018 Week 13 vs GB (5 / 53 / 2 rush, 2 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Edmonds came out of nowhere with a highlight performance of his young career. In cold, windy, and rainy conditions in Green Bay, Edmonds set a career high in total yards (66) and was used frequently in the red zone. Edmonds pushed the pile (with the assistance of the Arizona offensive line) down to the one-yard-line on a red zone carry, following it up with the goal line touchdown. Edmonds exploited a huge hole for more than 30 yards down to the goal line again on a later drive. Edmonds' contact balance and low center of gravity were on display, plowing through a defender for another red zone score. Edmonds also had a reception called back by penalty. Edmonds did not see a significant uptick in snaps, but enjoyed a career day in efficiency.
2018 Week 11 vs OAK (5 / 17 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Edmonds remains the clear primary backup to David Johnson and an injury away from a pronounced uptick in usage. Edmonds showed quality burst and balance on back-to-back carries in the first quarter against the Raiders, but otherwise had minimal offensive involvement.
2018 Week 10 vs KC (2 / 7 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
While still the primary backup to David Johnson, it was notable T.J. Logan saw some snaps on offense to soften Edmonds' projectable upside if Johnson were to miss time. Edmonds sparsely played but did post a quality red zone run down to the one-yard-line exhibiting good balance as he submarined for additional yardage.
2018 Week 3 vs CHI (5 / 10 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
For the third straight game Edmonds saw at least five touches as David Johnson's primary backup. Edmonds did not see snaps until the second quarter, but did grind out a third-and-short conversion on his best play of the game. Edmonds projects as a high-snap player if David Johnson were to miss time.
2018 Week 2 vs LAR (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 5 / 5 / 15 / 0 rec)
Edmonds saw most of his snaps late in the game against the Rams with the outcome already decided with a blowout loss. Edmonds' most notable play came on a low reception in the final minute of garbage time to extend the drive, which ended a few plays later. Edmonds mixed in with a breather for David Johnson every few drives, but the upside is limited due to the poor showings by Arizona's offense even if Edmonds were pushed to the starting role with a David Johnson injury.
2018 Week 1 vs WAS (4 / 24 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 24 / 0 rec)
Edmonds was the primary backup running back to David Johnson in Arizona's Week 1 blowout loss to Washington. Edmonds did not see snaps until the third quarter on offense, mostly due to Arizona logging only 14 total plays in the first half. Edmonds had a nice cut and eluded a defender on his most notable carry, buried in the fourth quarter. Edmonds also accrued most of his production in garbage time with the outcome already well decided.
