We know the Patriots will be a top-5 team in plays run, and you don't have to worry about Edelman being bogged down by a sputtering offense. He was the 16th-ranked receiver in PPR leagues last season while missing two games. I think you will have trouble not getting value from Edelman this season at his ADP, and even lower than his ADP.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

 
Edelman is a PPR monster with 92 receptions, but posted only 972 yards and 4 receiving touchdowns. He is a WR3 in standard leagues and a WR2 in PPR leagues.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

 
He's a PPR dynamo but not so much in standard leagues.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

 
Reception machine finished 17th WR overall in PPR scoring last season, but just 27th in standard settings. Brady suspension hurts.
