2018 Fantasy Outlook
Edwards managed to appear in 14 games throughout the 2017 season after his 2016 campaign was shortened to just two contests, but his roster spot could be up for grabs after the Raiders selected a trio of talented defensive linemen in P.J. Hall, Arden Key and Maurice Hurst during the draft. Read Past Outlooks

March 15, 2019
Edwards signed a two-year contract with the Saints on Friday, Luke Johnson of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
ANALYSIS
Edwards played a reserve role with the Giants last season, appearing in 15 games while posting 14 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble. The 6-foot-3, 280-pound defensive lineman will provide the Saints with interior depth while Sheldon Rankins recovers from a torn Achilles.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2015
A hip injury sustained in mid-August prior to the regular season kept Edwards on IR until Week 16, when the Raiders activated him for the team's final two contests. After a rookie campaign in which he racked up 42 tackles, two sacks, and three forced fumbles, Edwards' second year in the league was certainly overshadowed by the sprained hip. He figures to be back at full strength in 2017, starting at defensive end across from Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack.
Though a neck injury prevented Edwards from participating in a large portion of the Raiders' offseason program, he is reportedly 100 percent recovered and is showing well during the onset of training camp. As a rookie, Edwards lined up at both defensive end and linebacker, totaling 41 tackles and 2.5 sacks on the year. As part of an ascending Raiders defensive unit, Edwards is poised to improve upon his rookie-year stat line.
The Raiders selected Edwards in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft, 35th overall out of Florida State. Edwards is a versatile defensive lineman that can play both tackle and end, and it's likely that the Raiders' will move him around throughout the preseason to find out where he fits best. He should see a solid amount of playing time right from the start and could be great addition to an already improved Raiders' defense.
