RB Gus Edwards, Ravens
Nobody would blame you if you struggled to remember the last time Edwards played a game, which was a whopping 654 days ago on 1/3/21. “Gus Bus” has taken a bit longer than his fellow running mate J.K. Dobbins to recover from a similar torn ACL, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh seems optimistic that his return is coming soon. Edwards finally returning would be a sight for sore eyes with Dobbins dealing with alarming knee tightness while Justice Hill (hamstring) is still not ready to come back yet. Veteran Kenyan Drake just put up an impressive 10-119-1 line against the Giants, but was barely averaging 3.0 YPC before that. Edwards also just brings a thunder element that should be complementary not overlapping with Drake’s lightning, so there’s a lot of flex opportunity in deeper leagues especially with some appetizing matchups against the Panthers and Jags following the Ravens’ Week 10 bye.

WR Allen Robinson, Rams
OK, so he’s got a fantasy pulse at least. Now, go hurry and find some manager in your league who is willing to trade you anyone remotely valuable for Robinson’s brand name because this is likely just a flash in the pan. A-Rob has certainly been on the field a bunch, ranking 17th at his position in snap share (91.7%), but that has only translated to a sad 13.1% target share on the pass-heaviest team in the league. This is a team who also needs viable pass catchers so much that they’re waiting for Odell Beckham Jr. to re-sign like a puppy scratching at the door for their owner to come home and have targeted Ben Skowronek an average of nearly five times a game. They might get real reinforcements soon in the form of vertical threat Van Jefferson in what looks to be a Week 8 return from his knee injury. Robinson’s efficiency stats are ugly across the board, as he has not created separation (86th-best) and hasn’t excelled at what was supposed to be his calling card, which are contested catches (47th-best catch rate on those balls). Get what you can for him and move on.
