The Baltimore Ravens will get a key piece of their running game back in the lineup, as Gus Edwards is expected to return from a hamstring injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12.

Edwards has appeared in just two games for the Ravens this season due to recovery from a torn ACL and the hamstring injury he suffered in Week 8.

The return of Edwards this week will send Kenyan Drake back into more of a change-of-pace role for Baltimore.

The Ravens' offense hasn't looked great lately, and the team could use Edwards' tough running in this matchup with the Jags.

Baltimore is favored on the road in this game, and it's looking to extend its lead in the AFC North with a win.

Jacksonville isn't the easiest opponent for Edwards on the ground, ranking eighth in the NFL in yards per carry allowed this season.

Best NFL Prop Bets for Gus Edwards vs. Jaguars in Week 12

It's unclear if Edwards will see his full complement of carries in this game, so I'd rather take him to find the end zone here.

Gus the Bus is one of the best goal line backs in the league, and he scored twice in his season debut in Week 7.

The Ravens have struggled to put points on the board recently, so adding Edwards back should be a boost to the team's red zone offense.

Rather than hope he sees enough carries to clear a rushing prop, I'll back Edwards at plus money to score this week.
