5th Down Fantasy
Has missed 26 games since rookie year of 2013; was on an incredible pace in 2015 before that injury (142/1,577); still only 25 and practicing at full-speed at camp. 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

If Allen could keep from getting injured, he would have been one of the top fantasy receivers over the last two seasons, but, alas, he hasn't been healthy. Injuries are impossible to predict, just as if a player will stay healthy. Allen is a guy I will be targeting if his ADP doesn't get out of control.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.
Staff Rankings
QB List
If Allen had been healthy over the past couple years, he would've been one of the best receivers in football, but he hasn't been, and that risk is certainly here with him, but he's still an excellent receiver who could fall in drafts because of his injury history. He's been looking pretty good recovering from his ACL injury and will likely get a lot of targets given first-round draft pick Mike Williams' injury which could keep him out for some time. With Phillip Rivers throwing lots of targets his way, Allen could be better than wherever you draft him.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.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Before getting injured in 2015, Allen was on pace for 190 targets. Granted, they have Melvin Gordon rolling now and several other quality wide receiver pieces, but a star gets the ball in his hands, and that is who Allen was showing us to be. If he is healthy, he could be a top 6 wideout.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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Allen is the best receiver on the Chargers team, but he has struggled with health the last two years, so I cannot rank him as a WR1. The good news for him is that WR Mike Williams is hurt, which prevents a first round pick from overtaking him in the offense. 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 Edelman's value jumps in PPR but he doesn't score much and insert Cooks.

Corey Parson

Allen is progressing well from last season's ACL surgery. Further injury concerns remain an issue, but a healthy season will produce a top Fantasy wideout. Auction Value $22 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
In 27 career games with 10 or less targets, Allen has averaged just 3.96 receptions and 49.2 yards per game, compared to the 11 games where he's seen 11 or more targets and averaged 10.36 receptions and 117.8 yards per game. With all the mouths to feed, it's hard to see him getting more than 10 in many games.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.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Crap-shoot with his injuries, but if he can stay on the field he is a certain must start with the potential to be the #1 WR overall.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.
