The NFL denied Julian Edelman's appeal of his four-game suspension on Tuesday. He will miss the first four games of the season. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Although there was some thought that Edelman could have his suspension at least reduced, it was not to be. He will miss games against the Texans, Jaguars, Lions, and Dolphins. Chris Hogan will likely benefit substantially, but Rob Gronkowski should see an even higher share of targets in Edelman's absence. Edelman should return as a WR2 immediately after his suspension ends, so don't dock him too far in your draft rankings.
