Julian Edelman tops 150 yards in playoff win

Julian Edelman rushed once for seven yards and caught nine of his 13 targets for 151 yards in the Patriots' AFC Divisional Round win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Mr. Reliable led all Patriots in targets and receptions outside of James White, and was the only WR or TE to factor into the offense significantly, as usual. Edelman's floor and ceiling are both substantially higher than any other pass-catcher on the team sans James White, so use him with confidence in applicable playoff pools next week in the matchup with the Chiefs.

Julian Edelman nears 100 and TD in Week 17 win

Julian Edelman rushed twice for 24 yards and caught five of his six targets for 69 yards (nice) and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 17 win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Edelman is likely back in New England for 2019 on the final year of his contract, and with a pretty thin WR depth chart, Edelman will have plenty of appeal even in his age 33 season, as targets could continue to funnel his way. If the Patriots make moves at WR this offseason, that could change fast, though.

Julian Edelman targeted 10 times in win over Bills

Julian Edelman caught 6 of his 10 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Edelman remains a rock solid option as an integral part of the Patriots' offense. Don't second guess his value for Week 17, and start him with confidence. Edelman is about as reliable as they come at WR.

Julian Edelman totals 90 yards in loss

Julian Edelman caught seven of his 11 targets for 90 yards in the Patriots' Week 15 loss to the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Edelman continues to rack up targets from Tom Brady, and should avoid the Bills top CB Tre'Davious White next week by moving around in the formations. Edelman should be started with confidence again for Week 16 as he should keep rolling.

Julian Edelman targeted 12 times in loss

Julian Edelman caught nine of his 12 targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Edelman led the team in targets easily, and turned in a very strong performance. He continues to be a key cog in a strong offense, and should be started in most formats every week. Edelman once again belongs in the starting lineup as a nice WR2 for Week 15 against the Steelers.
