If Edelman's four-game suspension holds up, he is, of course, going to lose value. Still, he would quickly move back into being the most-targeted Patriots receiver on his return.The Packers released Nelson and the Raiders signed him to be their No. 2 receiver after releasing Michael Crabtree. I don't like the move, but it's done and Nelson will have some value, although not nearly as much as his name carries. I figure his ADP will be too high for me.

 Nelson could be a massive steal if the Packers got his release wrong. Still, there are a ton of mouths to feed in OAK and he sure looked slow last year

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

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 always gives low-end WR2 type numbers. If you can afford to play without him for the first four weeks then you might want to make him a target.After being a top-three fantasy receiver two straight years, Nelson disappeared last year, posting more than 100 fewer points than the previous year and finishing as a WR5. Now that he is in a new offense and playing in the slot, we might see him split the difference in half.
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. Let's be clear - when you go from Aaron Rodgers to Derek Carr, there's going to be a massive efficiency decline. One positive from the move to the Raiders is that it appears they'll be using him in the slot, similarly to the way that the Cardinals use Larry Fitzgerald. Nelson isn't as physically imposing as Fitzgerald, and he's also got to compete with Amari Cooper and Martavis Bryant for targets. While Nelson will be usable as a safe WR4 play most weeks, he doesn't offer you much upside.
