Suspended for the first four weeks but Edelman is a target hog who has weekly WR1/2 value in PPR leagues.  
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
If missing all of 2017 with a torn ACL wasn't enough to curtail his stock, Edelman's return must wait until he serves a four-game suspension for a PED violation. Extend 2016's 14.4 PPR PPG to a dozen bouts, and his 172.8 points would have made him last year's WR30. That matches his current ADP, so the price barely bakes in any risk of a 32-year-old possession receiver returning from a major knee injury. Anyone who only follows football through preseason fantasy analysis will think Parker is one of football's finest wideouts. Once again expected to take a seismic leap, he once again underwhelmed by scoring once in 13 games. He also garnered 96 targets in 13 games and 35 of them in Miami's final four contests. Jarvis Landry vacated 161 targets (21 inside the red zone), giving Parker his best opportunity yet to meet the hype. A broken finger should derail the usual August hype, perhaps making him available at a fair price for a change.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The suspension hurts, but he's going to play 13 games still and a healthy Edelman carries value - esp in PPR formatsParker steps into a huge role with Landry leaving. It all depends if he's ready to break out
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Edelman is suspended for the first four games of the season, so his draft stock has fallen, but when he is on the field, he tends to give WR2 numbers. If you can afford to play without him for the first four weeks then you might want to make him a target around round 10.Sure, he was a major letdown last year, and the year before, but this could be the year. You might be tired of hearing that, but with Jarvis Landry gone and Tannehill back, are you seriously going to suggest Danny Amendola or Kenny Stills will step in as the top receiver in this offense? Be honest, you know it is Parker and you've gotta buy that lottery ticket once again.

*Suspended First 4 Games* 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Don't just automatically assume that just because Edelman is returning to the field, that he's going to be the same player. He's now 32 years old and coming off a torn ACL last preseason. It's not to say he can't return and produce, but he finished as the WR22 while playing all 16 games in his age-30 season. A lot of the targets have evaporated in the Patriots offense and you have to figure that Edelman will still get every opportunity to succeed, so you don't want to write him off completely. He's obviously someone who would benefit in a PPR format. He's now been suspended for the first four games, so it's going to be difficult to hang on to him because the first month is the most important time to acquire waiver wire players. He shouldn't be drafted as a top-50 wide receiver at this point.There are a lot of fantasy players who are bailing on Parker at this point in his career, and while I get why they'd want to do that, it's a mistake. He's a former first-round pick who is 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, who has produced when he's been healthy. There've been 25 games in which he's seen at least five targets, and in those games he's averaged 68.2 yards and 0.3 touchdowns, which is low-end WR2 numbers. He did that with Jarvis Landry on the team, who is now a Cleveland Browns receiver. It's rare to find a player this late in drafts who has 120-target potential, but Parker does. If he stays healthy, he's likely going to finish as a top-30 wide receiver with upside for more. Update: Parker is going to miss multiple weeks with a broken finger, which should temper expectations, though he's still undervalued.

QB List
Consistently a security blanket for Brady and without a clear challenger for his role upon his return, Edelman could be the prime stash to win you your league this year if you have the luxury to do so. However, be warned: he is still coming off of an ACL injury and Belichick is known for being wildly inconsistent with his players' target share and time. All in all, just another lotto ticket for y'all.Devante Parker was supposed to be the stud opposite Jarvis Landry in Miami, but seeing as he plays for the Dolphins, of course it didn't work out as planned. However, with Tannehill returning to the fold, and Landry and his massive target share gone from Miami, Parker has a big opportunity to perform. Keep in mind though, that Parker has not shown good skills or physical traits in the past year. Take it with a grain of salt, but the opportunity is there as he seems like the defacto #1 receiver in Miami.

NE moved on from Welker at age 32. Edelman will be 32, off knee surgery/suspension. I like the odds JMatt takes the slot and doesn't give it back. @ClutchFantasy DeVante Parker posted WR3 numbers 61.5% of the time, while Adam Thielen posted WR3 numbers 56.5% of the time. @MikeTagliereNFL
Chet Gresham

Edelman will miss the first four games, which is a big chunk of the fantasy season.I have Parker in dynasty and turned down some really good offers for him, so at this point, I'm just hoping he can live up to some of his potential. Jarvis Landry is gone; the Dolphins have a rookie tight end, and Kenny Stills is the only player who could see more targets. I'll give Parker one more season.
