Updating a previous report, Roush Fenway Racing driver Carl Edwards, an impending free agent who will not be back with RFR, said earlier this week that he has a deal for 2015. "My deal is worked out," Edwards said. "I have a deal moving forward. I can't announce it yet. When all of those pieces come together, it'll be announced. We'll talk about it."
Fantasy Tip: Edwards has a clause in his contract where he cannot speak about his future plans until after Sept. 1. The general opinion has been that Joe Gibbs Racing will add a fourth team, Edwards, but nothing is official, at least to the public.

Roush Fenway Racing drive Carl Edwards will depart at the end of this season, leaving the team with a youthful roster featuring Greg Biffle, Trevor Bayne and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Edwards has been with Roush since the 2004 season, winning 23 races and twice coming close to a championship during the span. There is a provision in Edwards' contract that he does not disclose his plans for 2015 until after Sept. 1.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain where Edwards will end up for the 2015 Sprint Cup Series season, but he will find a full-time ride, that is for certain. However, monitor the situation closely. If he ends up with a lesser team, his fantasy value could be altered dramatically. Stewart-Haas Racing and Hendrick Motorsports have no room, and rampant speculation has Edwards landing a ride with Joe Gibbs Racing in 2015. If so, he could remain a fantasy force for years to come with potential teammates in Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth.
