 Suspended for the first four weeks but Edelman is a target hog who has weekly WR1/2 value in PPR leagues.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Leading the Rams in targets (95) and receiving yards (869), Kupp composited a quiet WR27 rookie season. Nobody created a higher average cushion (7.4) than the 6'2" slot receiver, who caught 12 of 20 red-zone targets for five TDs. He has a far lower ceiling than teammates Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods, but he's also most likely to fall in drafts. 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.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Everyone will flock to Cooks but Kupp looked great a a rook and already has chemistry with Goff. He's a fun value WR3 with WR2 upsideThe suspension hurts, but he's going to play 13 games still and a healthy Edelman carries value - esp in PPR formats
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Kupp finished as a top 30 fantasy receiver and the top rookie at his position last year. While there is, of course, room for growth and he may be their top red-zone weapon, it is also possible that he has already shown his ceiling considering how polished Kupp was when he entered the league.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.
Christopher Ventra

 *Suspended First 4 Games*
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite missing Week 17, Kupp finished as the No. 27 wide receiver in his rookie season, something that's not common in today's game. He did benefit from Robert Woods missing four games, and it now doesn't help that Brandin Cooks has been added to the mix. The part you can hang your hat on is that Kupp plays an entirely different role in the Rams offense than Cooks will, so it shouldn't affect his role too much. With Cooks, Woods, and Todd Gurley on the roster, it's going to be tough for Kupp to outperform last year's numbers without an injury. If there's one really good stat to support Kupp's continued success is his 23 red zone targets, which were more than double any other receiver on the team in 2017. 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.
Staff Rankings
QB List
"White Jarvis Landry on the Rams", as Kupp is fondly called in some circles, had a great year last season. Using crisp routes and the great QB play of Jared Goff, Kupp turned a mere 4.1 receptions per game into 800+ yards and 5 TDS. As such, He seems to have cemented himself into the slot/possession receiver role for an offense that is sure to chug along throughout the long season. However, it remains to be seen how he and Woods will divvy up the scraps Brandin Cooks leaves behind, and as a result Kupp just barely falls out of the top 30.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.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Kupp is good, but he's not Brandin Cooks. I like Kupp's ability and his value to the Rams, but he will have trouble getting the 94 targets he saw in his rookie season.Edelman will miss the first four games, which is a big chunk of the fantasy season.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
23 targets and 13 receptions in the Red-zone in 2017. 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

Cooks could see twice as many targets as Watkins did last year leaving Kupp as a volume based WR4 with WR2 upsideShould remain rock solid PPR asset when back from PED suspension
