Is Gus Edwards playing week 11?

Edwards (hamstring) is officially ruled “questionable” ahead of Baltimore’s Week 11 home game with Carolina, according to the team’s official injury report.

Edwards was restricted in practice all week after missing the Ravens’ final fight against the Saints in Week 9. Edwards seems poised to return to action this Sunday and while he’s been fairly efficient in his first two games, a solid fantasy day for Edwards is one where he reaches the end zone. Edwards is yet to record a reception in two games while also playing with less than 40 percent of the team’s snaps in those games. Should Edwards be inactive for his second straight game, Kenyan Drake jumps to a solid RB2 with advantages in a Plus matchup against a Panthers defense struggling to contain RBs. Projected windy conditions could also mean more carry for Baltimore’s backs.

Is Ezekiel Elliott playing week 11?

Elliott (knee) is officially ruled “questionable” when he takes on the Vikings late afternoon on Sunday, but head coach Mike McCarthy has said so he assumes Elliott will play.

While Tony Pollard owners are banging in the air, Elliott’s potential return certainly caps the benefits of Pollard, who finished as a top-10 RB in the two games Elliott missed. Should Elliott return to play, both Pollard and Elliott sit as RB2/3 on the boundary in a tough matchup against a Vikings defense allowing for the 5th lowest FPPG for RBs (17.8). Pollard could still see more carries, but Elliott would likely get the bulk of the goal-line touches and have plenty of the advantage.
