Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 8 vs NO (7 / 8 / 0 rush, 4 / 2 / 5 / 0 rec)
Edmonds was the clear starter against the Saints with David Johnson inactive, but was consistently stuffed as a runner, including a fourth down attempt and red zone reception on third down of note. Arizona was pass-centric in comeback mode most of the game and Edmonds also limped off the field with a hamstring injury late in the third quarter. Zach Zenner took over in relief and Arizona traded for Kenyan Drake after the game. Even if healthy for Week 9, the 49ers offer a stingy matchup for the Arizona rushing attack.
2019 Week 7 vs NYG (27 / 126 / 3 rush, 4 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Edmonds posted a career game against the Giants with 150 total yards and three touchdowns in the exploitable matchup. David Johnson drew the start but saw a single carry before exiting, never to return to action in the game. Edmonds ran with the lead role with 29 touches and enjoyed a few open running lanes by the Arizona offensive line. Edmonds scored on three chunk gains, two of them were great blocking and the third was fueled by a broken tackle. Edmonds had his best moments to the edge of the defense. The cherry on top was picking up a first down on a third-and-11 draw inside, which caught the Giants defense in a passing front. Edmonds did have a drop in the passing game. With Arizona exploring veteran running back signings early in the week, Edmonds looks poised to be the lead back for at least Week 8 against the stingy Saints.
2019 Week 6 vs ATL (5 / 34 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 33 / 1 rec)
While David Johnson was active for the Week 6 game against Atlanta, Edmonds was productive for a second straight week on limited touches. Edmonds entered the game on the second drive and was regularly mixed in with Johnson despite being the clear second running back in the rotation. Edmonds did his best work as a receiver, turning a goal-line swing pass into a touchdown and breaking a tackle on a later catch for more than 25 yards down to the goal line. Edmonds also found two big holes in the run game for 15 and nine yards respectively. Edmonds looks to continue his high efficiency play against the Giants in Week 7.
2019 Week 5 vs CIN (8 / 68 / 1 rush, 4 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)
Edmonds had his best game of the young season against Cincinnati logging 11 touches (previous high of six) and 86 total yards. David Johnson had his back 'lock up' by reports and hindered his later game snap count as a result. Johnson still saw 20 touches, but Edmonds converted his expanded opportunities into a long touchdown where he turned the corner on the defense to ice the game in the mid-fourth quarter, converted third-and-short on another occasion, and a third-down reception. Johnson's back is worth monitoring heading into Arizona's optimistic matchup against Atlanta next week.
2019 Week 4 vs SEA (6 / 37 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Edmonds was more involved in the Arizona offense early in this week's game against Seattle than previous weeks. Edmonds had three touches in the first four minutes alone, a strong uptick from his typical relief appearances for David Johnson's rest intervals. Edmonds, more so than Johnson, found success as a rusher, including a huge interior hole for close to 10 yards and two more quality runs later in the game. Edmonds projects as a high market share option for Arizona's backfield if David Johnson were to miss time in a future week.
