Gus Edwards News
Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (knee) has officially been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will have season-ending surgery. Edwards was expected to take the lead role with J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Justice Hill (achilles) both sidelined for the season, but caught a tough break in practice and what was feared as a torn ACL has now been confirmed. The Ravens backfield is currently in shambles and they have signed veteran running backs Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman in the past 24 hours. Bell and Freeman were both signed to the practice squad, but there is a good chance that one or both of them could be active for Week 1. For now, Ty'Son Williams appears to be in line for the most carries in Week 1 versus the Las Vegas Raiders. Both Bell and Freeman struggled in 2020 and Williams offers the most upside at the moment.
The Baltimore Ravens fear running back Gus Edwards (ACL) suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's practice. The Ravens' backfield has been destroyed by injuries and have now lost running backs J.K. Dobbins (knee), Justice Hill (Achilles), and Edwards for the season. Edwards and defensive back Marcus Peters sustained severe knee injuries in back-to-back plays in Thursday's practice. Ty'Son Williams is expected to replace the 26-year-old as the Ravens' primary running back and should be rostered in all league formats. The Ravens also signed veteran RBs Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman for the time being. Bell and Freeman should be rostered in most league formats with Thursday's crushing news.
Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman made it clear that running back Gus Edwards is in line for a lot of work this year. On Tuesday, Roman told the media, "He's our kind of guy. He's built for what we do." With J.K. Dobbins (knee) out for the year, Edwards is in position to have a fantastic season as the No. 1 back in a run-heavy offense. The 26-year-old Edwards has averaged 5.2 yards per carry over his three-year career and already has experience as the No. 1 back for the Ravens. He's a great RB2 target in the third or fourth round of fantasy drafts.
Sorry. I know that title isn't very descriptive, but it made me chuckle. Gus Edwards is a very simple man. He takes the ball from his quarterback, diagnoses where the hole is, and runs straight. He doesn't make defenders miss (just an 18.3% juke...
