 Suspended for the first four weeks but Edelman is a target hog who has weekly WR1/2 value in PPR leagues.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
One of 2017's trendiest picks, Crowder looked like a colossal bust with 149 receiving yards and four fumbles through his first six games. (Condolences to anyone who stuck by his side long enough to endure Week 4's -7 yards and fumble.) He then flipped a switch, totaling 640 yards and 74 targets in nine redemptive outings. Depending on which version drafters trust, he's either a steal or reach at his WR41 ADP. He created 3.2 yards of average separation, and opportunities should remain bountiful as Alex Smith's top target, so lean toward the former. 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

 The suspension hurts, but he's going to play 13 games still and a healthy Edelman carries value - esp in PPR formats
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Crowder has continued to have doubters but keeps getting better each and every year. This season, he fits perfectly with his new quarterback, Alex Smith, who tends to throw to receivers only when they have separation, which is Crowder's specialty. He could have a huge breakout campaign as a result.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.

Mike Tagliere

After Washington traded for Alex Smith, I knew I'd be high on Crowder. My interest only grew fonder when they brought in Paul Richardson, who should help stretch the field and open things underneath for Crowder. Smith doesn't like throwing into tight windows, as evidenced by NFL's NextGenStats that show a league-low 12 percent of his throws went to a wide receiver with one or less yard of separation. While Richardson and Josh Doctson were mediocre at separating, Crowder averaged 3.2 yards of separation, which ranked eight among wide receivers in 2017. Reports out of camp are that the Smith/Crowder connection has been apparent in the red zone. 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
The case for Crowder as a high upside play at #27 is an easy one: not only did the young receiver suffer from a slight case of stone hands last season, but he received his passes from a relatively inaccurate gunslinger in Kirk Cousins. Now nearly a year removed from the struggles of last season, Crowder enters 2018 as the primary slot receiver for a Redskins offense led now by conservative pitching machine Alex Smith. Aided by a jump in his QB's accuracy, an essential aspect of a successful slot game, and a defined role with the infusion of speedster Paul Richardson, Crowder looks poised to produce solid top 30 numbers over the course of a long season.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
Crowder was hyped pretty well last season and then crashed and burned early on, but he did improve after the halfway point. I still like his ability and am not sold on Josh Doctson just yet, while Paul Richardson should deep routes and give Crowder short and mid-range targets. As long as Jordan Reed continues his inability to stay on the field, Crowder will have a shot at a bounce-back season.Edelman will miss the first four games, which is a big chunk of the fantasy season.

Smith looks to love him some CrowderShould remain rock solid PPR asset when back from PED suspension
Kevin Wheeler

After coming into the season with lingering injuries, Jamison Crowder was PPR WR13 over weeks 10-17 last season. I expect Crowder and new QB Alex Smith will be working hard to form a solid connection during camp.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
