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. If the Patriots don't bring in some free agent receivers and draft a few early, I will probably move Edelman up, as he will be on track for another heavily targeted season.

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

- Brandon Funston, Yahoo! Sports

 
Edelman had only 61 receptions for 692 yards and seven touchdowns, but he played in only 9 games due to injury. At 30-years old, he should be able to play close to 16 games, but he is very much an injury risk. The 4-game suspension of QB Tom Brady will hurt his value early in the season.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

 
In 28 games over the past two seasons (including the playoffs), Edelman has averaged 7.0 catches for 75 yards and 0.43 TD on 10.3 targets...
