Adams vs. Edwards: who takes you to the championship? (1 Viewer)

Both appear to have been excellent late-season pickups.  Which one is more likely to lead your team to a championship if you managed to grab one or both?  Which one has the better skills?  Perhaps more importantly, which one will have the greater opportunity? Lots of RB mouths to feed on both teams.  Do you trust Pederson to let Adams be the bell cow? And is Edwards mostly a product of Jackson -- and what happens if (when?) Flacco returns? Or are they both fool's gold?

Both should be decent enough rb2 or flex options but neither are carrying you to a championship. 
I would tend to agree. Neither seems to offer much in the passing game so they’re likely going to be game flow dependent.

 
A good RB2 picked up in week 11-13 could be enough to move a team to the championship...even if the player himself isn't at the Gurley, Hunt level.

 
They both seem to be absolute touch monsters down the stretch as long as Philly doesn't get cute. Adams will catch a few balls too. He's proven capable, just no targets today.

Fortunate enough to nab both and paired with Gordon should be a wishbone that nobody wants to face.

Someone getting you 15 pts a game isn’t winning you a championship. If you’re winning the championship you most likely have someone producing better than that in the slot they would go in.

Adam's did have a 52 yd. TD called back

 Add that 11 in and you've got a pretty good RB

How can’t they...I’m missing bell, with Kupp now our for the year and AJ green hurt. Adams 15 in my second flex spot is much better then what I can expect from TreQuan Smith, Jalen Richard plus a couple others I have for that spot so yes he can and will help teams to championships

That’s fair. But it’s all individual. 

 
Just providing perspective, which apparently requires an asinine reprisal. 
What's asinine is making statements like someone scoring 15 isn't going to win you a championship. This without knowing the circumstances of anybody's team or injury issues. Which you seemed to acknowledge a couple posts up.

Then again, what do I know. Kamara only scored me 11 this week

 
Chubb certainly the #1 mid-season add...but that ship sailed long ago.  There's a chance that Adams and Gus are still available for this week's waivers.

Each league is different, but my guess is that many teams fighting for a championship could use a strong RB2...and maybe even a low-end RB1 with one or both of these guys.  But YMMV, of course.

Eagles were down by as much as 2 tds today and didn't have a lead until the 4th. Adams missed most of the first quarter with an injury and still ended up with 22 carries. Saying he is game flow dependent seems like lazy analysis.

The Eagles were never out of the game and were facing a weak run defense, so they didn’t abandon the run. When we see Adams remain in the game flow even when they go pass happy, I’ll be more convinced.

 
Adams.  Your odds of getting struck by lightning indoors are probably better than winning a championship with a Ravens offensive player this year.

Harbaugh’s recently starting to enjoy not telling anybody who he’ll be playing at RB and QB, and Collins will be back soon.

Local Baltimore media is also concerned Morhinweg will go back to pass heavy play calling once hes got Flacco back in week 13 or 14.  Play calling is why you haven’t had a fantasy worthy Ravens RB for much of this year so that’s a realistic concern.

Yep.  I had a particular great run with Samkon Gado in several leagues the year he flashed in the pan.

Adams points, vs the league leader in the highest scoring game of the week, got me over the line by 2.7 this week and into a playoff slot.

But that 52 yard TD would have been nice to add to that stat line

 
Left Edwards on the bench - Chubb, Cook & Lindsay in the Flex all outscored him. Glad I kept him off other rosters but he’s likely only gonna see 1-2 starts IF I make it to Championship Week.

ETA: also have Kerryon 

The whole production thing with Edwards is dependent on sticking with Jackson & the RPO. If Flacco returns I expect Montgomery (effective yesterday) and Allen and even Collins to eat into his workload. He’s a good north-south runner who is not afraid of contact, won’t make anyone miss, and he’s not involved in the passing game. Great late season RB3/Flex pickup but not a difference maker IMO.

Talking "wishbone" around Thanksgiving... jinx. :(

 
I think the argument above was a good floor/ceiling debate. 

I want floor. I draft well and have enough around me to solidify the FLEX position. 

I think Elevencents is wrong. You can win a championship with a low floor.    

 
Nice injury / flex option.  If you're depending on either to carry your team you are a very optimistic individual and probably fun to have a drink with.

I think it's just a semantics argument.

Of course on the right team Edwards or Adams could be enough to push you to a championship but neither are necessarily a guy that will carry your team on it's back to a championship. Every once in a while a player emerges late in the season that will do just that (i.e Tim Hightower in 2015)

Or OBJ that year, too, IIRC.  But he wasn't a RB, so there's that.

I own both in different leagues. Just saw a quote that Pederson wants to give Adams more work fwiw.  Both these guys can be difference makers and having fresh legs can be an added advantage.  I'd take Adams mainly b/c Edwards TD opps are going to be capped due to Jackson, although prob a bit higher injury risk with Adams.
