When the Patriots traded for Brandin Cooks, I was legitimately concerned about Edelman's role going forward. That was until they extended him for another two years. You can't expect anywhere near the 9.7 targets per game that he's seen over the last four years, but he's obviously part of their plans. He was never a touchdown scorer, so it's hard to rely on him as anything more than a low-upside WR3.

Edelman's value took a blow when Brandin Cooks was added. Cooks could beat him out for targets this year, and if Rob Gronkowski stays healthy, he will also take away a big chunk of looks.

Edelman had a quiet 98 receptions in 2016 to go along with a meager 3 touchdowns, the catch totals will go down with Cooks in the offense. Auction Value $13
