The Arizona Cardinals announced Week 15 inactives and Chase Edmonds is officially ACTIVE for their matchup against the Detroit Lions. Edmonds has been on the injured reserve list since suffering an ankle injury in Week 9. He was activated off injured reserve ahead of the contest.

With Edmonds back in the mix, the Cardinals will get another weapon to help mitigate the loss of star receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Edmonds was Arizona’s top running back entering the season, although James Conner did get a significant amount of the short-yardage and redzone touches. That may have been the most frustrating part of managing Edmonds, as he rarely was able to find the endzone.

Fantasy managers can play Edmonds knowing he likely returns to his heavy usage between the 20s. Conner is also dealing with an injury, so there’s a chance the Cardinals lean more on Edmonds in what should be a favorable game script for both running backs.
