Arizona Cardinals Fantasy Football Projections
Here are our projections for the Arizona Cardinals running backs for the 2020 NFL season:
|Drake's midseason trade to Arizona erased fantasy owner's frustrations over his usage as most felt that he was under-utilized during his time in Miami. With virtually no time to prepare, Drake rattled off 162 scrimmage yards and a touchdown in his Arizona debut and was one of the most productive backs in the second half of the season. From Week 9 (his debut with the Cardinals) to Week 17, Drake was fantasy's RB4 behind CMC, Derrick Henry and Ezekiel Elliott.|
|Edmonds played 60 snaps (94%) against the Giants in Week 8 and exploded for 150 YFS and three touchdowns on 29 touches. Missing all of November and playing only 15 offensive snaps in December, the third-year back out of Fordham enters 2020 as Kenyan Drake's primary handcuff.|
