Patriot's wide receiver Julian Edelman hauled in 10 catches for 84 yards in the team's Week 3 game against the Raiders.
Fantasy Impact: Edelman lead the team in receptions again. He is currently Tom Brady's favorite target, but as Rob Gronkowski's role continues to increase, Edelman will lose looks to the elite TE, especially in the red zone.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman hauled in 6-of-8 targets for 95 yards in the team's Week 1 game against the Dolphins.
Fantasy Impact: While he was third on the team in targets behind Kenbrell Thompkins and Rob Gronkowski, it's clear Tom Brady is going to be throwing the ball Edelman's way all season. He's a borderline WR2/3.
Patriot's WR Julian Edelman reeled all 8 targets for 99 yards in the Patriot's 30-7 win over the Panthers on Friday night.
Fantasy Impact: There's no doubt that Edelman is New England's No. 1 WR, and he's continued to impress throughout the preseason. While it's unlikely he'll repeat his 105-catch effort from last year with the impending return of Rob Gronkowski, he is clearly Tom Brady's favorite target. His ADP sits at #80/WR26.
The Patriot's WR caught two passes for 19 yards in Friday's preseason match-up against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: This is great news to hear from a fantasy perspective. Having the trust of Tom Brady is a plus to any receivers fantasy stock. Julian Edelman should be targeted as a low-end WR2 with the hopes of getting him as your WR3. He is a WR2 in PPR formats.

Fantasy Impact: With the return of Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola, and Shane Vereen, it's unlikely Edelman will match last year's team-leading catch totals, where he was fourth in the league with 105 receptions. Still, he's having an impressive camp, and has earned the trust of Tom Brady. The receiver's ADP sits at 79/WR26.
