Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Since joining the Lions, Tate now has 90 or more receptions all three seasons. He is one of only a handful of receivers to accomplish that feat, and the others are all superstars. He is a terrific safe option in the 4th or 5th round of standard league drafts this season, but his ceiling is limited.Edelman has been a points per game warrior in fantasy football, but unfortunately, he isn't on the field enough to warrant grabbing him at his current ADP, especially with all of the weapons the Patriots have.
Sablich Brothers
5th Down Fantasy
Emerged in Week 6 as Lions top WR; 71/889/4 over last 11 games = 103/1,293/5 over 16 games.Cooks is in town, but Edelman still has great rapport with Brady; risky pick overall with so many receiving options; should remain very solid PPR pick.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Tate is pretty much Jarvis Landry at this point and deserves a similar ranking. Tate gets a big boost in PPR.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.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Golden Tate was the WR7 from week 6-17 (PPR), right when they moved him to the slot. He will begin 2017 in the slot, no doubt top 15WR. He's a better NFL receiver than fantasy, with so many options on this team the fantasy points will be spread around. With Gillislee, Burkhead, and the other backs crushing it on the goaline Edelman isn't getting the targets and TD's he was back in 2015.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Tate emerged as Matthew Stafford's favorite target, but that only resulted in four touchdowns on the year. Still, he came close to 1,000 yards and got a good handful of receptions. Similar to Landry, Tate gets a bigger boost in PPR leagues (he's more a WR2 there) but in non-PPR leagues, he's a solid flex play.Edelman is, without a doubt, a talented receiver, and he's in a great offense, but now with the acquisition of Brandin Cooks, Edelman is lower on the totem pole than he has been before. Both Cooks and Rob Gronkowski are going to eat into Edelman's targets. He's never been a huge guy in the red zone, so it looks as though Edelman's upside will be pretty limited this year. Still, being in a New England offense has a lot of potential.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 Edelman's value jumps in PPR but he doesn't score much and insert Cooks.

Corey Parson
RotoExperts
Three straight season's of 90-plus receptions. Auction Value $20 Edelman had a quiet 98 receptions in 2016 to go along with a meager three touchdowns. The catch totals will go down with Cooks in the offense. Auction Value $13
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
