Edelman only played nine games in 2015, but did average in the Top-10 for fantasy points per game. When he was on the field, he was often the whole offense, as the Patriots were weak in receivers due to depth and injuries 
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Not expecting him to play all 16 games hence the ranking, will be very productive when healthy with Brady under center 
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Julian Edelman underwent 2 foot surgeries since November of 2015. He is currently on the PUP list and may not be ready until week 1. With a late start and Brady suspended for the first 4 games of the season, Edelman will be a player I'm avoiding in the first 3 rounds of my fantasy football league drafts this season. Julian Edelman has only played in all 16 games once in the past 7 seasons. He only played in 9 games last season.

5th Down Fantasy
Avoids major disaster with surgically repaired foot, but a reminder nonetheless of Edelman's wear.  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
He's a PPR dynamo, but he's also a 30 year old coming off foot surgery with a style of play that won't age gracefully 
FantasyPros Staff
FantasyPros
Nothing against the man's talent or the Patriots' system, but Edelman just isn't on the same level as the wideouts being drafted around him. He has never been able to stay healthy, is now 30 years old and hasn't put up a 150 point fantasy season in his career, so there is no reason to think he will produce one for you now.
