The New England Patriots have re-signed WR Julian Edelman. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Edelman was Tom Brady's favorite target last season, so at least Brady and the New England passing game will have some continuity heading into 2014.

Free-agent WR Julian Edelman (Patriots) will be testing the free-agent market, because he did not think the New England Patriots' offer was fair value. Edelman is also not happy that the team placed a deadline on him to respond to their offer.
Huddle Up: The Pats lost Wes Welker a year ago, and now they stand to lose Edelman, who hit career highs this past season with 105 catches for 1,056 yards and 6 TDs. We haven't heard from Tom Brady, but he and his keeper-league owners can't be happy.

The New England Patriots discussed a new contract with impending free-agent WR Julian Edelman Thursday, March 6.
Huddle Up: Edelman is coming off a career season (105-1,056-6), and he still would remain a very intriguing option -- particularly in PPR leagues -- if he stays with the Pats as part of an upgraded receiving corps.

It is unlikely that the New England Patriots will use the franchise tag on WR Julian Edelman this off season, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston, in part because of how much it would cost to use it.
Huddle Up: Look for the Pats to work around the tag and try to re-sign their leading pass-catcher, a year after being hurt by losing too many of Tom Brady's top weapons.

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (head) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16. The extent of his injury is not known at this point.
Huddle Up: It looks like Julian Edelman gets new life in fantasy leagues, particularly of the PPR variety. He is worth a start if Amendola is out, which looks to be the case.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught a career-high 13 passes for 78 yards Thursday, Sept. 12 in the team's 13-10 win over the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Edelman, who caught 7 passes for 79 yards and 2 TDs last week, was far and away Tom Brady's go-to receiver in a sloppy, drop-filled game, more than doubling the reception total (6) of the rest of the team combined Thursday night. With Danny Amendola out, Edelman was clearly the pass-catcher Brady trusted most, garnering 18 targets and producing big time for those fantasy owners who started him in PPR leagues.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman might benefit greatly in terms of targets in Week 2 against the New York Jets Thursday, Sept. 12, if WR Danny Amendola is inactive.
Huddle Up: Edelman has stepped into the Patriots' slot role before, at times with productive results, and last week he scored twice as one of the few receivers Tom Brady was actually familiar with. He projects to be a quality fantasy option, both this week and over the next couple of months with Shane Vereen sidelined with a dislocated wrist.
