Gus Edwards

Postby Themissingrum » Fri Feb 08, 2019 4:31 am

What happens to him?

Does he keep his current role in the Ravens, Does he disappear into obscurity, or do they get other people in so he still has a role but in a full committee system?

History seems to repeat itself in Baltimore. The Alex Collins hype train started much the same way.

I'd be shocked if he remained the lead back in 2019 throughout the season. He's a zero in the receiving game.

I like what he brought this season, but yeah, I wouldn't count on him getting carries like he has. It's a risk. I'd be tempted to sell if I had a decent offer.

I'm also not certain the Ravens return with the same offense as not many QBs can survive that much running.
Not all that counts can be counted. Not all that can be counted counts.

Sell. Sell. Sell. People are going to figure out that offense and Edwards is a typical two down bruiser.

I sold him for early 3rds in both leagues I owned him. (Both were 16 team IDP leagues so 3rds in those are like 2nds in standard leagues)

The problem is no one is buying. We're talking about a rookie running back that just rolled off 700 yards in 6 games to finish the season and people are lucky to get a 3rd round pick in most leagues.

The odds are certainly on him disappearing into obscurity, but he's a better dart throw than a 3rd round pick imo. He essentially had a half season of Jordan Howard's rookie year.

Agree. I'd rather hold and see knowing his value may very well disappear like Thanos snapped his fingers, as opposed to selling for a random third.

Honestly, I'd probably take a flyer on him at that price.

I agree. If I was an owner, I would rather hold than take a 3rd. If I was not an owner, I would certainly take a shot on Gus for the price of a 3rd.

Use him as a sweetener to get a bigger deal done. Of course, individually you're not going to get a haul. But, there would be enough intrigue to tip an offer from a skeptical maybe to an accept.

He was a nice pickup for people this season but we've seen Baltimore cruise through RBs like it's no one's business lol.

Sell for whatever you can get. If the Ravens draft a RB, and I bet they do, he'll be the new guy to own.

This is a pattern. Edwards is what Collins was. Learn from history so you don't repeat yesterday's mistakes. As a non owner, I wouldn't pay a 3rd round pick for him. I'd add if he was on the ww for the cost of a roster spot. If I owned, I'd sell for what I could get or hold and hope for the best.

I agree with what the above is saying, but I also like to zig when everyone's zagging. I'd pay a 3rd as of right now.

I think a 3rd is about the right price. I could see the case both buying and selling there, though I would be more a seller than a buyer at that price

I agree with this - I'm not selling for a 3rd - he is a way better dart throw than what you get there. not sure about his pass catching skills since he hasnt done much of it. But there is something about him I like.
