 Edelman is the unquestioned favorite target in the Patriots offense, and he may be the only one that Tom Brady trusts. You're starting him.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If you want to see double-digit targets, just watch his Week 15 game against the Lions. It doesn't matter if he's shadowed by Darius Slay; Winston will be targeting him relentlessly. There have been three games Godwin has seen 10-plus target this year. In those games, he's averaged 9.3 receptions, 132.3 yards, and 0.7 touchdowns. Slay is coming off a game in which he allowed 8-of-10 passing for 128 yards in his coverage, so it's not a must-avoid matchup, though it's also not necessarily a smash spot, as Stefon Diggs is pretty dang good. Knowing there have been 16 wide receivers who've finished top-24 against the Lions, you should have little fear about Godwin's floor in this matchup. Start him as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 and you just might get one of those massive performances.Despite Brady's struggles this year, Edelman currently sits as the No. 4 fantasy wide receiver in PPR formats. It certainly helps that he's averaging 10.4 targets per game, but that's all that matters to us. He's now seen double-digit targets in eight straight games and hasn't finished below 13.7 PPR points since way back in Week 4. The Bengals have Darqueze Dennard covering the slot for them, a veteran who's played well this year, allowing just a 54.5 percent catch-rate in his coverage with just 4.63 yards per target. Is that who he is? Over the course of his six-year-career, this is the best he's ever played in coverage, though volume hasn't been there. The only slot-heavy receiver who was heavily targeted against him (when he played) was Dede Westbrook back in Week 7 when he finished with 6/103/0 on nine targets, though not all production was in Dennard's coverage. You're starting Edelman as a low-end WR1 in season-long leagues with all his targets, though you may not need to play Edelman in cash games this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Godwin should see a ton of targets with WR Mike Evans gone for the rest of the season. Godwin is going against a Lions D that is 24th against fantasy wide receivers this year.The Bengals are 10th against fantasy wide receivers, but QB Tom Brady targets Edelman enough to keep him in the WR1 discussion.
