When the Patriots traded for Brandin Cooks, I was legitimately concerned about Edelman's role going forward. That was until they extended him for another two years. You can't expect anywhere near the 9.7 targets per game that he's seen over the last four years, but he's obviously part of their plans. He was never a touchdown scorer, so it's hard to rely on him as anything more than a low-upside WR3. After starting the year as a droppable fantasy asset, Tate totaled 943 yards and four touchdowns over the final 11 games in 2016, which was good enough to be the No. 10 wide receiver in that span. The Lions lost Anquan Boldin and replaced him with a late third-round rookie.

Edelman's value took a blow when Brandin Cooks was added. Cooks could beat him out for targets this year, and if Rob Gronkowski stays healthy, he will also take away a big chunk of looks.Tate is pretty much Jarvis Landry at this point and deserves a similar ranking. Tate gets a big boost in PPR.
Corey Parson

Edelman had a quiet 98 receptions in 2016 to go along with a meager 3 touchdowns, the catch totals will go down with Cooks in the offense. Auction Value $13 Three straight season's of 90 plus receptions. Auction Value $20

 Tate emerged as the favorite target of QB Matthew Stafford later in the season. He should be able to build on a season where he had 91 receptions for 1,077 yards and 4 touchdowns.
