New Orleans Saints
2019 Fantasy Outlook
In signing with the Saints on Mar. 15, Edwards joined his third team in as many years, after initially going to Oakland as the No. 35 overall pick in 2015 and spending his first three seasons with the Silver and Black. The Florida State product was mostly a starter with the Raiders (24 starts out of 30 appearances), but fielded just 21.2 percent of the defensive snaps while playing for the Giants in 2018, logging zero starts in 15 appearances. He hasn't yet delivered on the playmaking ability he exhibited during college, failing to exceed 3.5 sacks in any pro season, and averaging fewer than four tackles for loss per 16 games for his career.

Edwards (hamstring) will play in Sunday's game versus the Rams, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Edwards sat out the season opener with this injury, but he was a full participant in Friday's practice and is ready to make his 2019 debut. He'll likely rotate with David Onyemata at defensive tackle since starter Sheldon Rankins (Achilles) is out.

Mario Edwards began the season as a backup, but he's stood out following the season-ending injury to Justin Tuck.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
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.
