The addition of Sanu to the offense has allowed the Patriots to use Edelman in the slot more than usual, as he ran 81.3 percent of his routes from the slot in Week 9. That number was closer to 65 percent over the first seven games. Is this a good thing against the Eagles? Not necessarily. They've allowed eight wide receivers to hit 15 PPR points this year but none of them were slot-heavy receivers. The top three games for slot receivers were Geronimo Allison's 3/52/1, Trey Quinn's 4/33/1, and Cole Beasley's 3/41/1. Outside of them, no slot-heavy receiver has totaled 8.0 PPR points. Granted, they aren't Edelman, who's now seen 11-plus targets in each of the last four games, but it's something to note. Oddly enough, Sanu was the only slot-heavy receiver who saw more than six targets against them (he finished with just 4/16/0). There have been four receivers (Stefon Diggs, Davante Adams, Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley) who've seen double-digit targets against the Eagles, and all of them totaled 24-plus PPR points. There's clearly a lot going on here, but fading Edelman usually ends poorly. He's a high-end WR2 who comes with a solid floor.

The Eagles are 28th against fantasy wide receivers, Edelman is a WR1 on the road coming off his bye week in a great matchup.

Edelman is the unquestioned number one receiving option on the Patriots, and he's a must start every week, especially in PPR leagues.

No. 12 WR in FAN PTS has 10+ targets in 15 of past 21 games (inc. playoffs) and has 7+ catches in 6 of his past 7
