New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman became the second player in Super Bowl history to catch at least 10 passes for at least 140 yards. The other was former Patriots WR Deion Branch in 2004.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman was deservedly the MVP in a largely forgettable Super Bowel 53. He's been Tom Brady's go-to man for years now and will be in the PPR WR2 conversation going into the 2019 season. A potential Rob Gronkowski retirement would obviously raise Edelman's ceiling.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman was named the MVP of Super Bowl LIII, finishing with 10 catches on 12 targets for 141 yards in a 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman polished off the postseason with 26 catches for 388 yards in three games. He will enter 2019 as one of Tom Brady's security blankets and should be no worse than a WR3, especially in PPR formats.
Patriots' WR Julian Edelman had 10 receptions for 141 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's win in Los Angeles Rams.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman caught seven passes for 96 yards in the Patriots 37-31 overtime win over the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. Edelman was quiet for most of the game but was heavily targeted in the games final minutes, delivering clutch catch after catch. Edelman is clearly quarterback Tom Brady's preferred target in crunch time and the veteran receiver made some fantastic receptions in traffic. Edelman will be a top choice to lead the team in targets when the Patriots take on the Rams in the Super Bowl February 3.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught seven of his 10 targets for a team-high 96 yards in a 37-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman was particularly clutch on third downs throughout the game, and he has been Tom Brady's favorite target this postseason. Heading into the Super Bowl, Edelman has 16 catches on 23 targets for 247 yards in two games.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman has 54 first downs on 83 receptions over his last 10 postseason games. Both are NFL highs for a 10-game postseason span.
Fantasy Spin: With Josh Gordon gone and TE Rob Gronkowski not himself these days, Edelman has become Tom Brady's go-to target. He has drawn 10 or more targets in seven of his last 10 games this season, including a season-high 13 last weekend against the L.A. Chargers, resulting in nine receptions for 151 yards -- also season highs. Look for more of the same until a defense makes a concerted effort to take Edelman away.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman caught nine passes for 151 yards in the Patriots 41-28 win over the Chargers to advance to the AFC Championship Game. Edelman delivered when it mattered most, hauling in some big-time catches, including a 35-yard gain to set up a score. Edelman has been solid this season but has failed, at times, to produce down the field and in the red zone. But he was a dynamite option for quarterback Tom Brady and will be a top WR choice in DFS tournaments against a Chiefs team that he racked up 54 receiving yards and one touchdown against on October 14 of this year.
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught nine passes for 151 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman has been the top option for the Patriots for several years and will continue to receive plenty of targets in the passing game. He is a must-start option in all playoff fantasy leagues.
New England's WR Julian Edelman had 9 receptions for 151 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's win against the Chargers.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will have a tough matchup against a Chargers defense that allowed the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers during the regular season. The Chargers finished up the season allowing only five touchdowns to receivers over their last 11 games. Edelman has enjoyed an active season, catching 74 passes for 850 yards and six touchdowns. But he has struggled producing in the red zone at times and thrives more as a possession receiver. The Patriots offense has sputtered to the finish line to wrap up the season and may elect to lean on the running game. Edelman's fantasy value for this weekend would be in DFS tournaments that awards points for receptions.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman caught five passes for 69 yards, including a five-yard touchdown pass, in the Patriots 38-3 win over the Jets. Edelman also added 24 rushing yards in the game as the Patriots spread the field throughout. After serving a four-game suspension to begin the season, Edelman finishes the season with 74 receptions for 850 yards.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught six passes for 70 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Edelman has been targeted at least 10 times in six of the last eight games and continues to be the main option in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues next week.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman caught six passes for 70 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown, in the Patriots 24-14 win over the Bills. Edelman appeared to be tackled by two Bills defenders but landed on both of them as he escaped untouched to score his fifth touchdown of the season. Edelman may have lost a step from seasons past but is still a very solid, productive fantasy performer. Expect the Patriots, however, to protect their most important offensive weapons in a meaningless game against the Jets next week.
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.

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.
