It required at least 11.7 PPR points to finish as a WR3 or better in 2018. That's a number Woods hit in 87.5 percent of his games. The wide receivers who did it more? Davante Adams, DeAndre Hopkins, and Antonio Brown. That's it. He doesn't offer the upside of the top-tier guys, but as a consistent WR2 in your lineup, Woods gets the job doneThere are not nearly as many familiar faces for Tom Brady to look at nowadays, but Edelman remains his favorite target. With Rob Gronkowski ailing last year, Edelman stepped up and finished as a WR2 or better in 75 percent of his games, a new career-high. With Gronkowski and Chris Hogan gone, Edelman's role isn't going to shrink in 2019. He's a sturdy WR2 presence
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
There was negligible difference between him and teammate Cooks in fantasy last season - both were tucked right inside the top 20 in half-PPR FAN PPGIn Half-PPR formats, he delivered 12+ FAN PTS in 10 of 12 games - He was WR14 in FAN PPG, a level he should be able to sustain in a now Gronk-less offense
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Woods has been outstanding in his two seasons with the Rams, and he posted career-highs in most relevant categories last year. Like Brandin Cooks, Woods was actually better with Cooper Kupp on the field, so Kupp's return shouldn't be viewed as a negative. There's little downside with Woods at this point, so draft him as a strong WR2 and enjoy the production.Edelman was outstanding last year after returning from suspension, playing as a strong WR1 in PPR formats. He's getting up there in age but with Rob Gronkowski gone and incredible chemistry with Tom Brady, there shouldn't be many concerns. Josh Gordon's return takes a minor bit of shine off Edelman, but in any format where you are awarded anything for receptions, he will likely put up WR1 numbers.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Woods With Kupp: 5.6 - 85.48 - 0.38 Woods Without Kupp: 5.15 - 66.87 - 0.38 There is no reason to think Woods will digress with Kupp back and healthy. Woods is the definition of a rock-solid WR2. 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Despite the age, Julian Edelman is lined up for what could be a career year. He was on pace to eclipse 150 targets last season if he were to play in all 16 games, and that was with Josh Gordon for some time and Gronk for some time. The Pats did not make any real splashes to boost their position players this offseason, so it is going to be all Julian Edelman again for the wideouts.

Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Woods ends a six-man third-tier of fantasy receivers before a huge drop-off to the fourth tier. It might not feel as sexy as some other picks in the fourth or fifth round, but there is something to be said for his safety week to week and year-long in this Rams' machine of an offense.Those expecting Edelman to outperform his ADP might be in for a surprise as he has never finished higher than WR19 in fantasy. Part of this has to do with his inability to stay on the field and at 33 years old, reversing that tendency may prove a difficult task. He comes with reliability while healthy but perhaps with a price tag too steep.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Woods and Cooks were 1A and 1B in the passing offense last year, but the return of WR Cooper Kupp should make Woods a boom / bust WR3 most weeks.Edelman had 74 receptions for 850 yards and 6 touchdowns in 12 games last year. He sees a ton of short passes and he should maintain WR3 value this year.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Woods finished last season as the WR 11 with an 86/1219/7 stat line. Woods was the most consistent WR on the Rams roster last season, posting double digit fantasy points in 14 of 16 weeks, while going over 60 receiving yards in that same number. While the consistency was nice, he showed a slightly lower ceiling than the other receivers near the top 10. Woods topped out at 109 receiving yards, and he topped 22 fantasy points just twice. Woods was extremely durable last season, playing in 98.6% of Goff's snaps. He appeared in every game, and was really an every down player in all of those games. That was his best season as a pro, not only from a production standpoint, but also when looking at his health. He's suffered 2 ankle sprains, a pulled back, a groin tear, a knee strain and a shoulder strain. Despite these injuries, he's still been able to appear in 89% of his possible games. Sports injury predictor gives him the highest percent chance to miss time due to an injury with 3 projected games missed. I think that projection is fine, but I wouldn't worry too much about him having the highest chance to miss time, It's really just because he's missed a game in 4/6 seasons…but he's never missed more than 3 weeks, and it's not a big deal if he misses a game or two. I don't think you should be concerned at all with his injuries. This will be Woods's 7th season as a pro, last year being his first with over 800 yards, although it's tough to blame anyone for not producing while on the Bills. In his first season with the Rams he was on pace for over 1,000 yards…but he missed 3 games with a shoulder injury, and then the starters were held out of week 17. I also want to mention his splits with and without Kupp. With Kupp out of the lineup last season Woods averaged the same number of targets, but for half a reception less, and for 19 less yards. He also averaged 2.3 less fantasy points per game. So, the return of Kupp actually helps him. Ultimately, Woods should be viewed as a safe pick. He's a consistent point scorer on an elite offense, and he's still just 27.Since becoming a full-time starter in 2013, Edelman has averaged 2.5 more targets, 1.25 more receptions and 15 more yards per game without gronk in the lineup. His stats sans Gronk, regressed over a full season, comes out to 181 targets / 116.8 receptions / 1,289 yards / 4.8 TD's. That stat line would have finished 10th last season. Edelman has the 13th highest projection according to my model and his projection is extremely reasonable. The biggest risk with Edelman is with his health. He's really struggled to stay healthy over his career and he's got one of the highest projections for games missed due to injury this season. Fortunately, that's the only risk he carries. He's going to produce every game he plays, and he very rarely has down games. Since 2015 he has just three total games with less than 6 targets. In those games, his stat lines were, 4/84/1, 4/53/0, 4/120/1. Edelman is coming off the board as the WR 15 in the 4th round. The only way he doesn't finish as a value is if he gets hurt, and even then, he'll still get there on a per game level, So if he's hurt for 4 weeks, then just slide in one of the million under valued receivers going late in drafts. You won't be taking a 0 for the games he misses.
