Julian Edelman signs two-year extension with Patriots

Julian Edelman and the Patriots have agreed to terms on a two-year, $18 million extension.

Fantasy Impact

The deal includes $12 million guaranteed and an $8 million signing bonus. About to turn 33, Edelman was fantastic in his first year back from ACL surgery in 2018. The veteran slot receiver hauled in 74 receptions for 850 yards and six TDs. He then went on to win Super Bowl MVP. It's likely he finishes his career with the Patriots now.

Julian Edelman wins Super Bowl MVP with 141 yards

Julian Edelman hauled in 10 catches for 141 yards as the Patriots beat the Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl 53.

Fantasy Impact

Edelman was a one-man wrecking crew for New England, consistently picking up first downs when the Patriots needed it most. The 32-year-old missed all of last season with a torn ACL and then the first four games of 2018 due to a PED suspension. Still, Edelman proved once agin last night that he is uncoverable one on one in the slot. As always he will be a better PPR option in fantasy leagues next season.

Julian Edelman leads team with 96 receiving yards

Julian Edelman hailed in seven passes for 96 receiving yards as the Patriots beat the Chiefs 37-31 in the AFC Championship on Sunday night.

Fantasy Impact

Edelman finished second on the team with 10 targets. He was Tom Brady’s go to option on third down in this one, consistently picking up chunk yardage when the Pats needed it most. Edelman and the Patriots will face the Rams in the Super Bowl in two weeks.

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.
