Wed, 19 Oct 2016 14:47:15 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) posted four receptions for 30 yards on seven targets in the Week 6 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) has been listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman didn't produce the big game in Tom Brady's return many expected, but his time is coming if he can stay healthy long enough. Owners should shake off last week and saddle up Brady's buddy as a strong WR2.

Patriots | Julian Edelman limited again

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 14:16:31 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) was limited in practice for the second day in a row Friday, Oct. 7, and is questionable for Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: It's too early to take Edelman out of your starting lineup, but a midweek downgrade for a player with a foot that has been operated on twice in the last year raises some red flags. He'll be a strong WR2 in fantasy if he plays. If he doesn't, expect Martellus Bennett, Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola to play starring roles in Tom Brady's debut, especially of lieu of Rob Gronkowski still being less than 100 percent.

Patriots | Julian Edelman added to injury report

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 17:18:53 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 6.

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 14:08:42 -0700

Patriots | Julian Edelman to serve as backup QB

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 07:29:49 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman will serve as the backup quarterback for Week 4's game against the Buffalo Bills. QB Jacoby Brissett (thumb) will start and QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) has been declared inactive for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming he is not pressed into service as a quarterback during Sunday's game, Edelman should merit consideration as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 this week, although the Patriots are likely to run the ball more than normal versus the Bills.

Patriots | Julian Edelman not worried about QB

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 18:50:38 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman said he is focused on executing his job and not worried about who the quarterback will be in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills.

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 06:38:54 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman has done extensive work the last few days to prepare to be the backup quarterback.

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 14:05:46 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught seven passes for 76 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 11:01:20 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 18, so he can rest his injured foot.

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 21:59:48 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) looked quick in his first full 11-on-11 day Tuesday, Aug. 16. He sported an impressive double move to win a one-on-one drill.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman gave owners a sigh of relief, but he's not completely out of the woods after a flare-up a few days ago. He's still a high-end WR2 with some risk to go with ample reward.

Patriots | Julian Edelman back at practice

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 07:36:44 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: It's as if the grim scene of him slamming his helmet in frustration of a re-injury never happened. He was even leaving his feet to catch passes today. Edelman is a legit WR2, but use caution.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (undisclosed) suffered an injury in practice Tuesday, Aug. 9, but it is not believed to be serious, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: That's a sigh of relief, but as with the Pats and injuries, expect a shroud of secrecy. Edelman remains a No. 2 PPR receiver until further notice.

Patriots | Julian Edelman practicing

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 11:44:10 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) is participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman started training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, so he probably will be eased back into practice over the next few days. He probably should be considered a No. 2 wide receiver at this point but will have more value in point-per-reception leagues.

Patriots | Four WR spots set in New England

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 20:27:40 -0700

New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell are considered locks as the top four wide receivers. The team is expected to keep one or two more receivers from a list that includes WRs DeAndre Carter, Aaron Dobson, Chris Harper, Devin Lucien, Keshawn Martin and Nate Washington. Dobson has reportedly looked good in training camp so far, but the fact he doesn't play special teams might hurt his chances. Martin received a $600K fantasy bonus in January, so he might be the favorite for the No. 5 job.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman and Amendola will be the top fantasy options, while Hogan and Mitchell are worth fliers in leagues with deeper rosters. The others have little to no fantasy appeal, although if injuries open up more prominent roles the No. 5 or 6 receivers could emerge later.

Patriots | Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola progress

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 08:39:31 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) an WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) ran hills Friday, July 29, and appear close to returning to practice.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman is coming off of a broken foot and will be without Tom Brady for the first four games. Those issues are enough to push him down into the high-end WR2 range in fantasy. Amendola has been a bit of a fantasy tease, but he has struggled to stay on the field and remain a consistent fantasy threat. He'll have potential for big games occasionally, but he's best left to the WR5 area.

Patriots | Julian Edelman should be good to go

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 11:08:04 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) is expected to be removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman avoided a serious injury, but we don't really know just how much he'll be able to practice yet. He probably won't miss the start of the regular season, but an eye should be kept on his progress throughout training camp and preseason. Edelman is a borderline WR1 in PPR leagues.

Patriots | Three notable Pats put on PUP list

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 16:13:35 -0700

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and Julian Edelman (foot) and RB Dion Lewis (knee) were all placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola has had trouble staying on the field throughout his career and is an untrustworthy fantasy football commodity. Leave him to the waiver wire in standard leagues. Keep an eye on Edelman's progress this fall, but if he's ready for Week 1, he should be firmly in WR2 territory with more intrigue in PPR leagues. Despite a strong season for Lewis in 2015 before his injury, his injury makes him extremely risky. Not to mention the fact he's never had more than 50 carries in a season in the NFL. He's running back depth in deeper leagues and could be a flex option in certain weeks in PPR formats.
