Gus Edwards

Well this one came out of nowhere. Alex Collins had control of the Ravens backfield all season until last week. Collins was out touched by Gus Edwards 17 to 7. Edwards looked amazing. He led all Running Backs in Week 11 with 5.4 yards after contact. If the Ravens can commit to Edwards the rest of the season, he very well can be someone that can win you a league. There is the fear that the committee of Alex Collins, Javorius Allen, and Ty Montgomery will not allow for Edwards to be too effective due to the lack of volume. John Harbaugh is very impressed with Edwards saying, “Gus was North and South, he’s a physical guy. He’s been practicing really well. To give us that type of a back is very important. When those young guys start practicing well for weeks after weeks, we want to get them out there. Then he was playing well on special teams, so it kind of gave an indication that he was ready. He sure took the bull by the horns He gives us that back that we probably didn’t have earlier in the year. It’s hard to see a scenario in which Collins or Buck Allen—who was active but garnered just one touch against Cincy—have their numbers called more than a handful of times in these upcoming games. Make Edwards your No. 1 priority waiver wire claim for Week 12, you won’t regret it.

 

Josh Adams

It is tough to see many positives with the Eagles after getting embarrassed by the Saints last week losing 7-48. However, if there had to be one positive, it would have to be Josh Adams. Doug Pederson did say that he was going to get Josh Adams more touches and that stood to be true this past week. He took advantage of the touches he received as he received 7 carries for 53 yards and a TD while tacking on 3 catches for 19 yards. Since he received just seven carries in the game, some aren’t paying as much attention to him. That had more to do with game flow than his actual performance, as the Eagles trailed for most of the game. The Giants have been gashed by RB’s so Adams could have a true breakout game in Week 12.

Latavius Murray

Murray was a solid fantasy Running Back while Dalvin Cook was out. However, with Cook back, Murray becomes nothing more than a handcuff. Last week he was limited to 5 yards on 4 carries whereas he was averaging 16.4 touches per game in the past five with Cook out. Dalvin Cook had over twice as many carries as Murray in Week 11 and will continue to get the bulk of the workload when the Vikings face the Packers in Week 12.

 

Ito Smith

When Devonta Freeman got placed on the IR, all heads turned towards Ito Smith as the next RB up in the Falcons backfield to earn fantasy relevance. Smith had some solid games but is back to his normal self. In Week 11 he ran the ball six times for 10 yards and catching both of his targets for 12 yards. Meanwhile, Tevin Coleman racked up 58 yards on eight carries and caught three passes for 27 yards. Smith now has 199 yards on 59 carries and 19 receptions for 126 yards on the season. He’s entirely touchdown-dependent, and with byes all but in the rear-view mirror, he’s no longer a viable play in any fantasy formats.
