Make sure to monitor Edelman's injury status this weekend. If he does go, the game script will likely dictate that he won't see too many looks, but the Patriots are big favorites so perhaps he slips into the end zone a time or two.

Houston was 5th against fantasy receivers this year, but Edelman catches a lot of short passes and he is a threat to break one of those into a long gain.
