Allen was named Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America after bursting onto the scene with 71 receptions for 1,046 yards and 8 touchdowns. Allen and owners can expect a bit tougher second season. Not only will the focus of quarterback Philip Rivers be on Allen but teams are expected to play their No.1 defensive backs up against Allen.
Re-Signed with the Patriots for 4-years $17 million. Coming off a career year where he posted 105 receptions for 1,056 yards and 4 touchdowns. It's a much better deal for the Pats than their 5-year, $28.5 million commitment to Danny Amendola appears through one season. Amendola is locked into a roster spot for 2014, but the Patriots could save $2.1 million in salary cap space by releasing him next offseason. The Edelman deal magnifies that 2015 is a make-or-break year for Amendola in New England.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Showed he has the talent and drive as a rookie. Did he already plateau, though?
PPR machine. He's the new Wes Welker and only injury will make that stop.
  
Sablich Brothers
The New York Times
Hard-pressed to improve on last year's breakout in a run-first offense.
Outstanding preseason. Clearly Brady's number one wideout.
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
Here is your hidden top 5-8 fantasy WR if there is one hidden outside of the top 30 overall players heading into 2014!
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
One of the rookies from 2013; he will continue is streak with Phillip Rivers and he is an easy fantasy selection this year.
PPR monster on the Patriots. He showed that he can be the reliable option for Brady and he will find a way to post a ton of receptions, 1,000+ yards and near double digit TDs.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
In theory, the development of the rest of the receiving corps and the presumed good health of Gronkowski cuts into Edelman's top10 target load, but can only drop him so far after impressive, reliable, durable 2013.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Allen had an impressive rookie season with 71 receptions for 1,046 yards and eight receiving touchdowns. His numbers should improve, due to having a year of experience under his belt and being their top receiver in Week 1. However, do not expect a huge jump, because the Chargers are going to be a run oriented offense in 2014.
Edelman emerged as a big target in the Patriots offense, finishing the season with 105 receptions for 1,056 yards and six receiving touchdowns. He is the Patriots receiver to own right now, but will probably not see as many targets as he did a year ago.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Tough schedule to begin and end the season. Bust Potential is eminent.
A lot of Edelman’s success last year came from being the only legit option in New England. In 2013 TE Gronkowski missed 13 games, RB Vereen missed 8 games, WR Amendola missed 4 games, WR Dobson missed 4 games and WR Thompkins missed 4 games – that’s a lot of Targets gone for Tom Brady. Edelman was Tom Brady’s only consistent WR which resulted in his 1000+ yard season. With everyone back this year, Edelman will have a hard time receiving the 151 Targets he received in 2013. He’s still a High-End WR3 with WR2 upside in a New England Offense that has had their trouble with injured players.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
No reason to be skeptical of strong rookie year. He's a peach.
Numbers will fall off if Gronk, Dobson, Amendola stay healthy.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Allen was a stud last season. I think he'll be fine this year, but I do worry somewhat with Malcom Floyd returning and the Chargers wanting to slow down the game. He'll be pretty touchdown dependent and I could see Floyde and Green hurting him there a little.
There are a lot of choices in New England, but injuries left Edelman as the de facto choice last season and he shined in PPR leagues.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Broke the mold for rookies wide receivers making a fantasy impact last season. Look for Allen to lead SD in receptions and draft him as a low WR1.
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
May be even better with Floyd running clear-out routes
Solid flex option, worry usage could go down if Thompkins and Dobson take looks on outside and Amendola somehow stays healthy in slot
