New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman registered seven receptions for 90 yards on 11 targets in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman missed the first four games of the season due to suspension, but he has still managed 63 receptions, 711 yards and four scores on 92 targets. He remains a tremendous WR3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues with slightly lesser value in standard play.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman recorded a team-high seven receptions for 90 yards in the Patriots 17-10 loss to the Steelers. Edelman enjoyed an active game as he saw 11 targets and came up with a huge 34-yard reception late to give the Patriots a chance to possibly tie the game in the closing minutes. Edelman has produced solid numbers this season but struggles to get open in the red zone. The veteran receiver has a tough matchup next week against the Bills but Edelman caught nine passes for 104 yards in Week 8 against them.
New England Patriot wide receiver Julian Edelman will have plenty of PPR-value in Week 15 against the Steelers. Pittsburgh's defense is allowing the 14th fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers this season but Edelman has been a consistent presence since returning from his suspension. He has 56 receptions in nine games played this season and should be active in this pivotal matchup. The Steelers have allowed only three touchdowns to receivers since Week 9 but Edelman should still have plenty of fantasy appeal, especially in PPR-leagues for Week 15.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman caught nine passes for 86 yards, including a three-yard touchdown catch, in the team's shocking 34-33 loss to the Dolphins. Edelman enjoyed a highly active first half and it was a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners to see Edelman targeted in the red zone. The veteran receiver now has four touchdowns on the season to go along with 56 receptions, 622 yards through nine games played and will remain on the WR2/3 fantasy radar for the remainder of the season.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught nine passes for 86 yards and one touchdown against the Miami Dolphins in Week 14.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman has been targeted at least 10 times in four of the last six games and has recorded at least 70 yards in five of the last six games. He can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues next week.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will go up against a Dolphins defense in Week 14 that has allowed the 12th fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers this season. Miami has allowed only five touchdowns to receivers in their six home games and Edelman has caught only one touchdown over his last five games. The veteran slot receiver still is a huge part of the offense (47 receptions in eight games) but the Patriots do not feature him at all in the red zone offense. Edelman should have an active game but his ceiling, from a fantasy perspective, should be capped as no more than a WR2 for Week 14.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman posted three catches for just 25 yards on eight targets in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman posted his worst yardage total of the season and the catch total was his lowest of the season, too. He'll look to bounce back in Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins, but should only be trusted as a WR4 or flex fantasy option.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman caught three passes for 25 yards and added 35 rushing yards in the Patriots Week 13 win over the Vikings. Edelman took two reverse hand-offs for some much-needed first downs but struggled to get open at times during the game. He caught only three passes on eight targets as quarterback Tom Brady tried to fit some passes into tight windows. Edelman is a integral asset to the Patriots offense but is no more than a possession receiver at this time. His best fantasy value is in PPR-leagues right now as the team gets ready to take on the Dolphins in Week 14.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman has been a reliable receiver for Tom Brady for several years and should receive a lot of targets against the Minnesota Vikings. He can be a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues in Week 13.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 29.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman has been targeted at least 10 times in three of the last four games and has posted at least 70 yards in all four of those games. He has been a solid fantasy option for several years and can be a No. 2 receiver this week.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will go up against a fast and fierce Vikings defense in Week 13. Edelman is having a solid season, totaling 44 receptions for 510 yards and three touchdowns through seven games. He will have a tough task, however, against a Vikings defense that has not allowed a single 100-plus yard receiving game to a receiver not on the Rams this season. Outside of the Rams game, the Vikings have allowed only four touchdowns to receivers all season. Edelman is a safety valve from the slot position for quarterback Tom Brady but could struggle to post yards after the catch against a swarming Minnesota secondary. Edelman has value in PPR-leagues but fantasy owners need to temper expectations for a player who becomes practically non-existent in the red zone. Edelman is a WR3 with upside in Week 13.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman was targeted only five times in the last game but still finished with 84 yards and one touchdown. He is a big part of the team's passing game and should be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver this week.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman registered four receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 12 against the New York Jets.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman has managed at least four grabs in each of his seven outings since starting the season on a four-game suspension. He has really kicked it into high gear over the past four, however, totaling 28 catches for 363 yards and a touchdown on 37 targets. He is back as a WR1 option in PPR leagues, and decent low-end WR2 or flex option in standard play heading into Week 13.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman caught four passes for 84 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown, in the Patriots 27-13 win over the Jets. Edelman got the Patriots offense going on the first drive, hauling in a 36-yard pass from quarterback Tom Brady. He later caught a pass in the second half and ran it 20 yards for a score that put the game away. Edelman numbers this season have been solid, if unspectacular, and now has three touchdowns on the season. The veteran can be expected to generate four-to-six catches with 50-90 receiving yards per week moving towards the fantasy playoffs.
New England Patriots TE Dwayne Allen (knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 12 versus the New York Jets. QB Tom Brady (knee) did not practice Friday, Nov. 23, and is listed as questionable. DB Nate Ebner (knee), TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back), OL Shaquille Mason (calf) and RB Sony Michel (knee) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. WR Julian Edelman (foot) was not given an official in injury designation Friday after being a full participant in practice early in the week but has been removed from the injury report.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 22. The Patriots did not hold a practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman has been targeted at least 10 times in each of the last three games and has two 100-yard games in that span. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in all leagues this week.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) was able to practice in full on Wednesday, Nov. 21.
Fantasy Spin: Barring any type of setback, Edelman appears to be on track to play in the Week 12 game against the New York Jets, so feel comfortable starting him if you normally depend on the veteran in fantasy.
New England Patriots TE Dwayne Allen (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 21. QB Tom Brady (knee), TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back), OL Shaquille Mason (calf) and RB Sony Michel (knee) were limited participants. WR Julian Edelman (foot) practiced in full.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will have a favorable matchup against a Jets defense that is allowing the sixth most fantasy points to opposing receivers. Edelman has been a PPR-darling since returning from his four-game suspension and has 40 receptions for 426 yards with two touchdowns through six games. He has been very active in each of the games he has played this season but has struggled, at times, springing free for huge gains after the catch. He has been a solid safety valve for Tom Brady from the slot and will play a Jets defense that has allowed nine touchdowns to receivers over their last seven games. Edelman has plenty of value in PPR-leagues but fantasy owners need to be aware that he is rarely targeted in the red zone. Edelman will be a safe play as a WR2/3 for Week 12.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman's (ankle) injury is not considered serious and he's not expected to miss much time, if any, according to a source. Edelman rewarded his fantasy owners with nine catches on a season-high 12 targets for 104 yards in the Week 10 loss to the Titans. He left in the fourth quarter with the game well out of hand. New England has their bye in Week 11, so we'd expect Edelman to be good to go for Week 11 against the Jets, barring a setback. He has had double-digit targets each of the last three games, making him a WR2 moving forward.
