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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
