Chasing Chase Edmonds

Where there is volume and opportunity there is fantasy points aplenty. Right away in the off-season when the Miami Dolphins acquired Chase Edmonds I was all aboard that train from the get-go. The contract first and foremost is what really put the icing on the cake for me personally. The trade of Tyreek Hill to take the top off the defense is what sold me next.

Anytime that Chase hits the second level of a defense he will be trotting his way to the endzone more times than not. That is just what kind of effect Hill has for an offense. Edmonds is no slouch himself as he posts a 4.5 which is a decent speed for a back in his own right.

Raheem Mostert was also added into this backfield a little on, but I have no worries about him really eating into the workload of Edmonds as he is just more of a friendly face for Mike McDaniel to have around form their time in San Francisco together. Having a back that knows the offense is for sure a leg up. But, with Mostert really over the age cliff as an RB and his ability to stay on the field is highly questionable at this point. I just don’t see the possibility of him being a threat to Edmonds workload this season.

Sure, maybe Edmonds kind of was thought of to be a big break out candidate last year. No one really saw the reemergence of James Connor in Arizona last season either.
Chase played 63% of all the offensive snaps in Week 1 while also posting up 4 catches for 40 yards and adding another 25 rushing yards. That was against a tight Patriots defense.

Bottom line here is: This is the year that Chase Edmonds puts it all together to have a fringe RB1 season. MAKE YOUR TRADES WITH LEAGUE MATES NOW! Thank me later.
