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.

Outstanding preseason. Clearly Brady's number one wideout.

PPR machine. He's the new Wes Welker and only injury will make that stop.
The Football Girl | Aug 27th
Numbers will fall off if Gronk, Dobson, Amendola stay healthy.
The Fake Football | Aug 26th
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.
Fantasy Sports LR | Aug 26th
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.

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.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 25th
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.

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.
Legion Report | Aug 25th
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.

Solid flex option, worry usage could go down if Thompkins and Dobson take looks on outside and Amendola somehow stays healthy in slot

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 […]
