Good timing for me...with Lindsay and Breida not being reliable flex guys.

Tough matchup today and Im sure NO will be fired up with Brees returming.

Yeah, the match-up this week and next dampens the excitement. I am hoping he can at least catch a bunch of garbage time passes to pad the stats a bit. I am seeking a trade with the DJ team right now hoping I can get them to bite.

I moved Chase to the DJ owner two days ago. I made an even swap for Tevin Coleman, being the Breida owner. I sold him on both of us locking down their respective RB situations.

I understand the scoring rules and roster makeup of each league will dictate the value of Edmonds, but what is fair compensation for him? He's at worst a flex moving forward. This is valuable insurance come playoff time and during bye weeks. We're halfway through the season but a lot can still happen. I was considering moving him to the DJ owner but looking at his roster, he has nothing, other than a WR1 that I may consider. I doubt people would give up a WR1 in a redraft for him and with the volatility of WRs in FF, it would be difficult to consider accepting anything less.

What are you guys looking for in return?

Interesting. I think Tevin is a fair swap but I would I rather add something else and get a bigger target.

Cardinals declared WR KeeSean Johnson, RB David Johnson (ankle), RB Alfred Morris, RB D.J. Foster (hamstring), OL Lamont Gaillard, DL Michael Dogbe and DL Zach Allen (shoulder) inactive for Week 8 against the Saints.

Johnson is also expected to miss the Cardinals' Thursday night matchup against the 49ers. Chase Edmonds and recently-signed RB Zach Zenner will be the offense's only two active RBs with Morris and Foster also sidelined.

Odd that only 2 backs are active and it's Zenner over Morris.

They did the same thing last week, correct?

And apparently knowing full well that DJ was not going to play much (if at all).

Zenner is the one that will play special teams too. Morris never has and certainly wouldn’t start now.

Cards O has done nothing. Don’t think they have had the ball more than 5 min 

The Saints D has been very good all year. They have given up garbage time yards and TDs in 3 games, but probably not this game.

Sorry everyone. I decided to switch him in last minute for Melvin Gordon. This has been the absolute worse season I’ve had in 20+ years playing as far as my decisions and the outcomes as far as I can remember.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) is questionable to return Sunday.

Edmonds suffered the injury in the third quarter and was spotted badly limping on the sidelined. Zach Zenner is the only active RB remaining with David Johnson (ankle) and D.J. Foster (hamstring) inactive. Edmonds was held in check before departing, posting 7-8-0 rushing and 2-5-0 receiving lines.

Glad it’s a hammy and not a season ending knee injury 

Sure but also this week and next were his big showcase spots (though the match-ups are awful).

Just glad it’s a hammy. Hopefully a couple weeks of rest and he’s back to being a nice flex even if DJ is healthy.

Last week we all leave him on the bench and he scores 35.

This week we all start him and scores 0.

I need a new hobby.  😚

Wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world if he sat against the 49ers,  but the bigger issue is that he may have missed a chance to stake a majority claim in the backfield.

If you have Johnson and don’t have Edmonds, now is the time to acquire.

Absolutely. I acquired him to become my RB2 after I traded Fournette a couple of weeks ago for Hopkins (had Breida as my RB2 for a couple of weeks). I was actually out today with some peeps from my league, and the guy I traded with joined us... I covered his tab today.

He said he is "hopeful" to play Thursday. Not holding my breath.

They play the 49ers. He's be just as well off sitting it out. They are gonna get destroyed.

That never existed. He could have absolutely earned a significant role(40%), and likely still has earned a decent workload(30%), but a healthy Johnson owns this backfield until he's no longer on the roster.

At this point, I'm not expecting either to be playing week 9, anybody's guess who makes it back first, though hamstrings worry me a ton with quickness based guys. If I had to guess, I'd bet on Johnson being on the field sooner, but that is 100% speculation.

So is Zenner the lead dog Thursday night?

I saw something earlier that DJ was expected to sit Thursday no matter what for an extra week off before reevaluating things, but that those plans might be revisited and he could possibly be thrown into action Thursday. Who knows how legit that is and if even possible with his injuries and I do not remember where I saw it, sorry. If I come across it I will post it.

They play San Fran. Surely we all have better starts than any of the AZ backfield?

Perhaps not, but it’s all speculation either way. For all we know, Edmonds may be evolving as the primary ball carrier with DJ primarily being split out side.

I think that particular speculation is silly. I've seen it from a few different places, and it just doesn't make sense. Johnson is as good as any RB in the NFL at receiving, but he's not a WR, and now especially with Christian Kirk back, that would be a waste of resources. 

You can certainly split Johnson out and have Edmonds in the backfield for several plays a game. Maybe 8-10? But it'd be a huge mistake to make that a full time alignment, even 25% would be a waste. Part of what makes Johnson such a valuable pass catcher is him getting matched up with LB's, and S's, with a head of steam already built up. Coming from a full stop against CB's(or S's) is another matter altogether. 

I like Edmonds, I really do, but the most likely scenario going forward(when both are healthy) is what we saw in the 2 games prior to the Giants game. Which was about a 70-30 split in favor of Johnson. 

ETA: The days of Johnson getting a McCaffrey-like snap share, are certainly over, Edmonds has done more than enough to stop that, as has Johnson's health, but I think people have been a little to quick thinking a changing of the guard is happening.

I was hesitant to do it against NO but felt he was my best option out of Breida and Lindsay (not a lot of difference there and I got steamrolled by Goff, Kupp, Edelman, Cook, and Mack yesterday anyway).

But there was no way I was starting him against SF.

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said there's "definitely concern" that Chase Edmonds (hamstring) won't play in Week 9 against the 49ers.

The Cardinals play on Thursday night, giving Edmonds just four days to get cleared. That puts him on the wrong side of questionable after not returning from his hamstring injury in Sunday's loss. With David Johnson (ankle) also sidelined, the Cardinals may have to turn to a committee of Alfred Morris and Zach Zenner.

I'm contemplating dropping Edmonds (in redraft) now.  Not willing to hold on to him through this injury only to split time with DJ and Drake.

Clarifying stance for redraft... not dynasty.
