Patriots | Julian Edelman working little with Tom Brady

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman has been on the field for just four snaps (including penalties) with QB Tom Brady through two preseason games, and none in the most recent game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It's uncertain if the team already feels they know what they have in Edelman, so they are working their rookies in more, or if Edelman is behind on the depth chart. Edelman is likely to work as a top target in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22, against the Detroit Lions, with WR Danny Amendola (undisclosed) not expected to play.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman has proven useful in the past, and with only Amendola as a proven NFL receiver on the roster, it is hard to believe there isn't a role for Edelman following the departure of Wes Welker (Broncos). Still, it's unclear where exactly Edelman stands, so you won't want to risk anything more than a late-round draft pick on him at this point.
