Kenyan Drake stood in the way of a big 2020 season from Chase Edmonds, but Arizona's third-year back excelled in the limited opportunity he received. It's possible that Edmonds sees that opportunity expanded in 2021, as Arizona has far less invested (just $1.75 million) in James Conner than they did in Drake. Conner will likely be involved in short-yardage situations, but Edmonds' percentage of passing downs and backfield snaps as a whole should increase from what he saw in 2020.
Edmonds is a clear top-30 RB pick for season-long leagues, but how high should the 25-year-old back be ranked in Dynasty formats with no guarantee of playing a Fantasy-relevant role beyond the 2021 season?
