New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) said he doesn't have his 'football legs' yet and isn't in the best shape following practice Friday, Aug. 3.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman (knee) is still a work in progress in his recovery from a torn right ACL that kept him out all of last year. "I feel like I got to get my legs under me a lot more. I don't have my camp legs, I don't have football legs, and it's evident out there," Edelman said Friday after the team's eighth practice of training camp. Maybe it's a good thing that Edelman is suspended for the first four games of the season. With Brandin Cooks out of town, Edelman should be the overwhelming favorite for the majority of the passes aside from Rob Gronkowski. His four-game suspension knocks him down to more of a low-end WR2 in PPR leagues.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman won't take his four-game suspension to federal court as he has decided not to file suit, according to sources.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman's four-game suspension was upheld by the NFL on Tuesday, meaning he'll miss the first four games of the season against the Texans, Jaguars, Lions and Dolphins. It's surely a blow to Edelman's 2018 fantasy value, but he should still be selected as a strong WR2 in PPR leagues. In his absence to begin the year, tight end Rob Gronkowski will see heavy usage, as will receiver Chris Hogan on the outside. Running back Rex Burkhead could see a boost in passing situations as well, while receivers Jordan Matthews, Malcolm Mitchell and Phillip Dorsett could see more usage.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman's appeal to his four-game suspension was denied Tuesday, July 3. He will officially serve the suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman's appeal of his four-game suspension will be heard Monday, June 25, and sources say he plans to mount a vigorous defense that questions the NFL's handling of his case.

According to sources, he's also contesting the way the documentation and delivery of Edelman's test results were handled.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman's positive test for performance-enhancing drugs was triggered by a substance that wasn't immediately recognizable, and scientists are currently analyzing it. It's unclear if this will affect his pending four-game suspension, but we'll keep you posted with any updates. As of now, expect Edelman to be banned for the first four games of the season, which obviously hurts his fantasy value in all formats.
Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman has not had the appeal of his impending four-game suspension heard by the NFL at this point.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to league sources. The suspension is under appeal. That'd be a big blow to a player that missed all of last season due to injury. Edelman is a stud fantasy performer, especially in PPR leagues, when he's healthy and is one of quarterback Tom Brady's favorite targets. A suspension to start the year would mainly increase the fantasy value of receiver Chris Hogan, and tight end Rob Gronkowski would see even more targets, too.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman has a four-game suspension looming for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, according to sources. Edelman has appealed the suspension.

He's also recorded two 1,000-yard campaigns since 2013. He should return to being one of quarterback Tom Brady's favorite targets in the passing game and is a PPR stud.
