Question about metal roof on shed and drip edge
Had a relative help me build a storage shed in my backyard, but we didn't realize we couldn't get metal roofing anywhere in my area, so I ended up ordering it, and now I need to finish up the job by myself. It's not a big deal as the shed is only 7' x 11' size. But I know little about roofing, so I had a question.
The relative told me to install drip edge. However I am questioning that need, since I've read on Fabral's instruction sheet the following mention:
"To provide a drip edge, allow an overhang of 1 to 2 inches at the eave."
I plan on extending the roof a few inches in every direction past the rafters. Will that be enough or do I need to bother with the drip edge?
The roof simply slopes down as such (in case it matters in what I'm saying).

Thoughts? Comments? Do I need a drip edge if I'm not planning on having the roof flush with the deck edges? Or SHOULD I have it flush with the deck edges? I'm not planning on putting any gutters, the runoff wil just dump into the backyard.
