Expert Note
View More Notes

After a hot start, Edelman has really cooled off the last few weeks, totaling just five catches for 58 scoreless yards against the Raiders and Chiefs. Whether people realize it or not, the Raiders (13th) and Chiefs (1st) are actually tough matchups for wide receivers. T.Y. Hilton, A.J. Green, and Edelman are the only receivers with 30-plus targets and no touchdowns this season. In Week 5, however, there are no excuses. Teams have continually attacked the Broncos cornerbacks, as wide receivers have averaged 25.3 targets per game against them. That's led to the fifth-most fantasy points in the league, including 16.8 receptions per game, which is the second-most in the league. The Broncos are not likely going to have A.J. Bouye back for this game, which means Essang Bussey is going to remain as the slot cornerback, which is a very good thing for Edelman. Bussey has allowed 12-of-14 passing for 120 yards and a touchdown in his coverage. It hasn't been pretty lately, but you have to shake it off and get Edelman back in lineups as a WR3 this week.

Julian Edelman (knee) ruled out for Week 8

Julian Edelman (knee) has been ruled out of the Patriots' Week 8 matchup versus the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Edelman is expected to land on IR after undergoing knee surgery this week. He reportedly isn't out for the season, however. N'Keal Harry won't play against Buffalo either, which means Cam Newton will need to rely on Damiere Byrd and Jakobi Meyers as his top receiving options.
