Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 14 Rankings
Julian Edelman photo 8. Julian Edelman (vs . KC)
He's seen 10-plus targets in seven straight games and that's unlikely to end this week. He's the one Brady looks to when he's in trouble, and the one who's had plenty of success even through Brady's struggles. Not many will believe this, and I even did a double-take when I saw it, but the Chiefs have allowed the third-fewest points to the wide receiver position. Are they that good? Not necessarily. They've faced just 189 wide receiver targets (15.8 per game) on the season, which is the second-fewest behind only the Chargers. On a per-target basis, they're pretty average. In the slot, they're below average, which is where Edelman runs 67 percent of his routes. Their cornerbacks/safeties have combined to allow 75-of-106 passing for 726 yards and five touchdowns in the slot. They got Kendall Fuller back from injury last week, but he's been the weakest link in the secondary. It's obviously not one of the best matchups in the league, but it's not as bad as some may think. Edelman should be in lineups as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2.

Mohamed Sanu photo 62. Mohamed Sanu (vs . KC)
After missing the Week 12 game, Sanu returned and played just 19-of-86 snaps in the loss to the Texans, so he's clearly not at 100 percent. He did see five targets when on the field, though they amounted to just three catches for 14 yards with a drop included. He's playing in the slot just 39 percent of the time with the Patriots, which doesn't bode well for his success in this matchup, as the Chiefs have been much better on the perimeter than they've been over the middle of the field. There have been just eight wide receivers who've topped 11.0 PPR points against the Chiefs this year, which is not something anyone would expect to be the case. You can't trust Sanu while he tries to play through his injury.

Phillip Dorsett photo 64. Phillip Dorsett (vs . KC)
Ever since the team acquired Sanu, Dorsett has been assigned to a perimeter role in the offense, which is not good for his Week 14 projection. The perimeter duo of Charvarius Ward and Bashaud Breeland have combined to allow 53-of-104 passing for 809 yards and three touchdowns in their coverage. They've surprisingly been one of the better duos in football from a results standpoint, and they're a large part of the reason the Chiefs have allowed the third-fewest points to the wide receiver position. Dorsett hasn't topped 53 yards since way back in Week 1, so he's essentially touchdown-or-bust. Knowing the duo has allowed a touchdown every 34.7 targets, that's not a smart bet. He's nothing more than a WR5.
