Having averaged at least nine targets per game in each of the past five seasons in which he has suited up, Edelman posted a career-high 1,117 receiving yards as a 33-year-old last season. With him now catching passes from a quarterback other than Tom Brady for the first time in his career, Edelman likely has the most productive seasons of his NFL career behind him.As an outside threat who tends to play faster than the Giants' other receivers, Slayton proved to be a solid complement to Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and tight end Evan Engram last season. Like Patriots quarterback Jarrett Stidham, Slayton may turn out to be a steal as a Day 3 selection in the 2019 NFL Draft after being underutilized as a college player in Auburn's run-oriented offense.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Last year's PPR WR7 is available in the 8th round of drafts. HUH?! Edelman is one of the most consistent receivers around when he's healthy and while he now lacks Tom Brady, Jarrett Stidham would have been a great replacement given his proclivity for slot receivers. Sadly for Edelman lovers, Cam Newton has arrived and that will not only boost his ADP, it likely hurts his fantasy production. Newton won't use the 34-year-old receiver anywhere near as much, making Edelman a PPR certainty with less usefulness in non-PPR. Nevertheless, he's still a great sleeper if his ADP remains outside the first five rounds and I'd suggest he's a very solid starting option.Darius Slayton had a strong debut season but his fantasy stock was overly boosted by his surprising 8 TDs. Massive regression is coming in an offense that now boasts a healthy Barkley, Engram, Tate and Shepard, something that was never true last season. He's a strong upside pick if everything goes right but not my preferred choice of target.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Did you realize Edelman has seen 793 targets over his last 83 games? That's a pace of 152.9 targets per season. But what happens when your whole world is flipped upside down? Losing Tom Brady is going to affect Edelman more than anyone, as those two had a connection and were continually on the same page. The Patriots also threw the ball 620 times last year, a number they won't even come close to in 2020. It's a different offense, yes, but did you know Cam Newton has never thrown more than 517 pass attempts in a single season? He's also failed to throw for more than 3,869 yards since his rookie year and has thrown more than 24 touchdowns just once. Meanwhile, Edelman has never averaged more than 7.9 yards per target. What does that mean? Even if he were to get 125 targets, his career-best wouldn't have totaled 1,000 yards. There's a lot of issues and question marks surrounding Edelman, and we haven't even discussed him turning 34 years old this offseason. He's likely to post low-upside WR3 numbers when on the field, but that's been a chore in itself, as he's played all 16 games just three times over his 11 years in the league. If you take the late-WR approach in drafts, it's not the worst thing to have Edelman as your WR3, but ideally, he's your WR4 with all the question marks and lack of upside.Everyone wants the shiny new toy that just posted 740 yards and eight touchdowns on just 83 targets last year, as evidenced by his WR39 ADP. The issue is stability. With Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate in the mix, it's going to be very hard for Slayton to get consistent targets and be reliable in fantasy. Sure, he had multiple 120-yard, two-touchdown games last year, but you know what else he had... after those games? A game with three targets. Another game with two targets. Keep in mind that was while Evan Engram was out of the lineup. Slayton outproduced what everyone expected last year, being a fifth-round pick, but there's a real chance he's the No. 5 option in this passing attack when everyone is healthy. His average depth of target last year was 14.5 yards down the field, which ranked 10th in all of football. That further indicates a boom/bust player who's being taken as a low-end WR3/high-end WR4. If you want to believe in his ceiling, that's fine, but don't pay for it. He's in the WR4 territory and not as safe as Shepard or Tate. If someone misses time, we saw what he can do if promoted.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
With Tom Brady no longer at QB, the safe, reliable feeling of drafting Edelman has faded. Even with the addition of Cam Newton, it's hard to imagine Edelman being quite as consistent as he used to be. I see him as more of a flex option this year as opposed to his usual WR2-self.Slayton surprised many as a rookie racking up 48 receptions, 740 yards, and eight TDs. For a rookie wideout, catching passes from a rookie QB, those are very impressive numbers. The progression of Jones is going to be key for Slayton but if Jones does take that next step, Slayton could finish as a top-30 WR.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Edelman's chances of returning fantasy value certainly increased with the Cam Newton signing, but at this point of his career, he's nothing more than a low-end WR2/WR3.Drafting Slayton in 2020 is a bit of a gamble. He was terrific last season, but the rest of the receiving options on the Giants were never fully healthy all at the same time. The Giants are still going to air the ball out a ton this season, but Slayton's going to have to see one or two other receivers miss significant time for him to see the target totals necessary.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 With Daniel Jones at QB and Evan Engram playing, Darius Slayton averaged just 3.83 targets per game and never eclipsed a 13.8% target share in a single game. @ConnorAllenNFL

Love his target-hog role, but will that continue with the first-ever QB not named Brady? 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Limped into the off season with injuries. Constantly exceeds expectations. Such little target competition(sorry Sanu). I'll keep waiting for something to give out and end up most likely avoiding him. A solid 82nd in Y/R. Not that he's ever excelled there but that doesn't play when the targets run out.I think he's less likely to take a value hit if targets get squeezed versus some of his slot friends..
