Patriot's wide receiver Julian Edelman hauled in 4 catches for 23 yards in the team's Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Edelman was held in-check by the Chiefs' secondary all night, but he'll remain Tom Brady's favorite target, and should post strong WR2 numbers throughout the season.

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.

Patriot's WR Julian Edelman hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 2 match-up against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Edelman led the team in targets on a day where the Patriot's defense took control with 4 interceptions and a blocked field goal returned for a touchdown. He'll remain Tom Brady's favorite target.

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: It's unlikely Edelman will get close to last year's 105-catch season, but he is the clear #1 receiver in New England. He's had a great camp, and all signs point to his success from last year continuing. His ADP sits at #78/WR31.

According to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe, Julian Edelman has been Tom Brady's "most efficient target through the first two weeks of training camp". (Source: Boston Herald)

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.

ESPN Boston added that Edelman "put on a show" with a "highlight reel catch" during practice. (Source: ESPN)

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.

Cincinnati is ranked 12th against fantasy receivers and the Bengals will have the advantage coming off a bye week. The way the Patriots are playing right now, Edelman has WR3 value only.

BALLER MOVE: Target ~ 55 (Current ADP: 67, WR: 25) ANALYSIS: If you were to ask any average fantasy owner to name you three offensive players on the  New England Patriots it’s conceivable Julian Edelman wouldn’t even make that list. Chances are they would name Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and one of the random running backs […]
