Huddle Up: This was the expected outcome after Edelman fell to the ground following a violent cut on his right leg in Friday's exhibition game against the Detroit Lions, but it is still a major setback for the Patriots as the slot receiver is Tom Brady's most trusted underneath weapon. Chris Hogan figures to see the biggest bump for fantasy purposes and should now be considered a borderline WR3 in PPR formats, while Danny Amendola, Malcolm Mitchell and Brandin Cooks should see more targets as well.

Huddle Up: If Edelman is out of for the season, Brandin Cooks should be the biggest beneficiary. Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell should also enjoy a boost in value. Even without Edelman, Tom Brady would remain a QB1.
Posted: 8/25/2017 7:37pm ET
Huddle Up: The loss of Edelman isn't ideal, but Tom Brady still has enough firepower at his disposal to provide QB1 production. Brandin Cooks vaults firmly into the WR1 conversation, and Chris Hogan becomes an upside WR4. Malcolm Mitchell is also worth grabbing in the later rounds.

Huddle Up: We are still waiting for an official diagnosis for Edelman, but this news is far from encouraging. If he misses extended time, Brandin Cooks becomes a much safer bet to finish as a WR1. Chris Hogan would become an appealing WR4, and Malcolm Mitchell would be worth a late-round flier.

Huddle Up: The Patriots should have an update on Edelman's status after the game, so owners should monitor the situation. He played very well in the second half of the 2016 season and is expected to be the No. 1 receiver for the Patriots. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues as long as he is not sidelined for long.
Posted: 7/12/2017 7:27pm ET
Huddle Up: This shouldn't be too much of a surprise, as Edelman has always been one of Tom Brady's favorite weapons throughout his career. That figures to continue in 2017, as despite entering his age-31 season, the eight-year veteran continues to be as productive as any wide-out in the league. Even with Brandin Cooks joining the receiving corps, it looks like Edelman can be trusted again as a high-end receiver.

Huddle Up: As strange as it may seem, Edelman's 1,106 yards were a career high last season. He also had 98 grabs but only three touchdowns. At 31, his name value may carry more weight than in fantasy as he has only had two 1,000-yard seasons. His playstyle doesn't help him, either, as he doesn't shy away from hits in the slot. He's still in the WR2 discussion, but there are options with more upside.
Posted: 6/8/2017 5:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Despite being on the verge of entering his age-31 campaign, Edelman has continued to prove his worth year in and year out, and is coming off a season in which he registered his highest reception (98) and yardage (1,106) totals since 2013. Interestingly, he was also never targeted more than he was last year. Thus, he's always worth a look in fantast drafts as a WR2.
Posted: 6/8/2017 1:31pm ET
Huddle Up: The Patriots officially hold on to their star receiver, who was entering a contract year. As stated earlier, Edelman is a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 target with added value in PPR leagues.
Posted: 6/8/2017 11:49am ET
Huddle Up: Edelman is entering a contract year, so it's no surprise that an extension would get done this offseason. He's the Patriots' most consistent wide receiver and deserves low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 consideration in PPR formats.
Posted: 5/21/2017 5:40pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 2/11/2017 12:44pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 1/22/2017 6:47pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 1/14/2017 9:03pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 1/1/2017 7:15pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/24/2016 1:57pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/12/2016 9:48pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/4/2016 4:15pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/4/2016 7:15am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/2/2016 2:30pm ET
Huddle Up: In New England, 'questionable' is the new probable, and that is particularly the case with Edelman. The Patriots' slot receiver is in position to see another increase in targets following the loss of Rob Gronkowski, so if he isn't already in the low-end WR1 discussion in PPR leagues, he should be now.
Posted: 12/1/2016 5:16pm ET
Huddle Up: He'll be fine for Week 13. With Rob Gronkowski (back) out indefinitely, Edelman's already-high stock gets a slight boost, as he may see even more looks than usual. He's definitely a WR1.
Posted: 11/30/2016 9:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Edelman is expected to be ready to face the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13 barring any setbacks. He is a stud in PPR fantasy formats for his high rate of catches, as he is working on a three-game streak with at least seven grabs and 77 yards.
Posted: 11/30/2016 11:16am ET
Huddle Up: Edelman probably will return to practice at some point this week and should be able to play in Week 13. He has posted three straight solid games with at least seven catches and at least 77 yards in all three games. Edelman should be a fine No. 2 receiver in a majority of fantasy leagues.
Posted: 11/27/2016 10:56pm ET
Huddle Up: Edelman's yardage total was second highest of the season. He has at least 77 receiving yards in each of his past three games and he has re-emerged as a WR2 in all PPR leagues, while serving more as a WR3 in standard formats.
Posted: 11/27/2016 12:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Edelman has caught 15 passes for 176 yards and one touchdown over the last two games and should continue to see a solid amount of targets. Edelman should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 11/27/2016 6:57am ET
Huddle Up: Edelman was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 this week due to a favorable matchup, with added value in PPR formats.
Posted: 11/25/2016 2:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Edelman has been on the injury report for several weeks but has been able to play and should be active in Week 12. He has been targeted at least seven times in each of the last six games and should continue to be a focal point in the passing game. Owners in all leagues should consider Edelman as a No. 2 receiver.
Posted: 11/24/2016 2:11pm ET
Huddle Up: Edelman has experienced plenty of bumps and bruises and limited practices throughout his career. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks he should be able to take the field. The New York Jets are a favorable matchup, too. He's in WR2 territory with added value in PPR formats.
Posted: 11/23/2016 2:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Edelman has been targeted at least seven times in each of the last six games and has caught a touchdown in two of the last three games. He will continue to be a focal point in the passing game and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.
Posted: 11/20/2016 10:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Edelman has four or more receptions in each of the past six games, and he has been targeted 61 times during the span. He hasn't been posting a ton of yards, but he remains a solid fantasy option in PPR formats.
Posted: 11/20/2016 8:14am ET
Huddle Up: Edelman was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He's worthy of consideration as a WR3 or flex option because he sees plenty of targets, although he's had difficulty finding the end zone this season.
