Patriots | Julian Edelman sticking around?

Sun, 21 May 2017 17:40:29 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman is in the final year of his contract, but former teammate Heath Evans said he doesn't expect a contract dispute like the one that saw WR Wes Welker leave New England and sign with the Denver Broncos in free agency. "I don't think we're going to see that with Jules," Evans said. "I think Jules embraces the grind-it-out-for-the-common-good mentality."

Fantasy Tip: The addition of Brandin Cooks and a healthy Rob Gronkowski could eat into Edelman's targets, but he has Tom Brady's trust, and that should keep him comfortably in the WR2 conversation, especially in PPR formats.

Patriots | Julian Edelman productive on road

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 12:44:24 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught all three of his touchdowns on the road this season. He finished the season with 43 receptions and 522 yards at home while catching 55 receptions for 584 yards on the road.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman had a slow period near the beginning of the season but finished strong with at least 75 yards in seven of the last eight regular season games. He should continue to be the No. 1 receiver for the Patriots and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

Patriots | Julian Edelman tops 100 yards

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 18:47:37 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman snared eight passes for 118 yards and a touchdown catch Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman was his typically dynamic self, and he is as productive as anyone when healthy. The upcoming draft season should find him placed somewhere in the neighborhood of being a WR2 in PPR and a third in standard scoring.

Patriots | Julian Edelman has busy night

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 21:03:52 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman finished with eight catches on 13 targets for 137 yards in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman has now been targeted at least 11 times in seven of his last eight games, and he has topped 70 yards in every game during that span. He has one of the safest floors of any receiver.

Patriots | Julian Edelman busy in finale

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 19:15:52 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman racked up eight receptions for a season-high 151 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets in the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman finished the season with at least five receptions in eight consecutive games, and he ended the season with 98 catches, 1,106 yards and three scores. He is a PPR fantasy owner's dream, and he will be a solid WR2 in most standard postseason fantasy formats.

Patriots | New England unlikely to rest starters

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 09:24:19 -0800

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick hinted he would not be resting his starters in Week 17, suggesting Tom Brady, LeGarrette Blount and Julian Edelman among others will play their full complement of snaps in Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins. "I don't understand that question. I don't know how many starters we have," Belichick told reporters after being asked about resting starters in the season finale.

Fantasy Tip: Another Belichickian gem for sure, but it makes sense as the Patriots try to lock up home-field advantage in the AFC next weekend. Brady, Blount and Edelman should all be started without hesitation in Week 17.

Patriots | Julian Edelman finishes with 89 yards

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 13:57:08 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught five passes for 89 yards against the New York Jets in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman has recorded at least 70 yards in each of the last seven games and has been one of the main targets in the passing game in the second half of the season. He will be a risky option in Week 17 because he may see limited snaps if the team has the No. 1 playoff seed clinched.

Patriots | Julian Edelman targeted frequently

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 21:48:20 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman was targeted a game-high 15 times in the Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens, posting seven receptions for 73 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman and Tom Brady obviously have the best rapport on the team, especially with some injuries to the receiving corps and others asked to step up who TB12 isn't as familiar. When there is trouble, Brady looks to Edelman first. He remains a top-notch fantasy option, especially in PPR formats.

Patriots | Julian Edelman cracks century mark

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:15:40 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) pulled down eight receptions for 101 yards in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted a game-high 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman was on the injury report again due to his foot injury, but he shined in this game as the top receiving option. He remains a solid low-end WR2 in all PPR formats and a WR3 in all other leagues in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Patriots | Julian Edelman to play Sunday

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 07:15:07 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) will play in Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report due to a lingering foot injury. Despite this, he is expected to see a decent number of targets this afternoon and should be viewed as a low-end WR1 option in all fantasy formats.
