2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
A torn right ACL in the third preseason game cost Edelman the entire 2017 season. The 32-year-old slot receiver worked his way back over the offseason and appeared primed to regain his place as Tom Brady's favorite WR target before news broke of a four-game suspension for PED use.

When active, Edelman has been a volume beast in the Patriot passing game, with over 150 targets in two of his last four seasons. Assuming he is back to full speed and will not be in Belichick's doghouse for missing time, Edelman will likely slide back into the slot receiver role and the 8 to 10 targets that come along with that position.

The four-game suspension will chase away risk-adverse owners who are not comfortable using an eighth-round pick on a player who will miss a quarter of the season. But for those willing to take the hit, adding Edelman as a reserve or Flex WR, especially in PPR formats, could be a league-winning move.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Gronkowski doesn't travel with team
Highly unlikely to play in Week 7
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 20, 4:30 pm

New England Patriots
Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is “highly unlikely” to play Sunday vs. Bears as he didn't travel with the team to Chicago, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gronkowski has yet be ruled out officially but that will likely come tomorrow. He's battled ankle and back injuries recently and doesn't seem to be his usual "Gronk" self on the field. In his absence, Dwayne Allen will likely start but isn't a viable fantasy options. Julian Edelman Josh Gordon and James White should lead the team in receiving.


Injury Gronk, Edelman active for Week 5
TE working through ankle injury, WR coming off suspension
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 4, 7:10 pm

New England Patriots
Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) and WE Julian Edelman (suspension) officially active tonight. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: There was some doubt earlier in the week about Gronkowski, but he's going to go against a shorthanded Colts defense that gave up a combined seven catches on nine targets to Washington in Week 2 and 12 receptions for 146 yards and a score in Week 3 against Philadelphia. He should be starting everywhere. Edelman is a bit of a different story in that he could be rusty, but he's usually good for about 10 targets every time he plays, so owners should find a spot for him in their lineups as well.


Eric Decker announces retirement
Revolving door continues for New England WRs
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 26, 1:00 pm

New England Patriots
Veteran wide receiver Eric Decker, who had signed a one-year contract with the New England Patriots on Aug. 3, announced his retirement on Instagram Sunday afternoon. Decker appeared to be on the roster bubble despite the Patriots' needs at receiver; he didn't play in the first half of Friday's preseason loss to the Carolina Panthers. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The wide receiver group in New England has been a revolving door as the Patriots have said goodbye to Jordan Matthews, Malcolm Mitchell and Kenny Britt earlier this off-season. With Decker headed toward retirement, Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson remain the top four options with Edelman severing a four-game suspension.


Patriots release WR Malcolm Mitchell
Knee still an issue
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Aug 6, 1:33 pm

New England Patriots
Patriots have released WR Malcolm Mitchell. Really flashed as a rookie but has battled injury problems (Jason La Canfora on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mitchell played 12 games in his rookie season but has battled knee issues ever since. The Patriots attempted to trade the third-year wide receiver but couldn't get a deal done. The wide receiver depth chart is still in flux with Chris Hogan, Julian Edelman, Kenny Britt, Eric Decker, Cordarrelle Patterson and Phillip Dorsett all vying for targets.


Patriots sign Eric Decker
One-year deal
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Aug 2, 11:25 am

New England Patriots
Patriots expected to sign former Titans’, Jets’ and Broncos’ WR Eric Decker to a one-year deal, per sources. And it’s neither here nor there, but is there now a better looking QB-WR combo in the NFL than Tom Brady and Decker? (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jordan Matthews suffered a hamstring injury in last Sunday's practice and the Patriots felt the need to bring in another wideout into a crowded group. Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, Cordarrelle Patterson, Eric Decker, Kenny Britt and Malcolm Mitchell fill up the top of the depth chart. He's a late-round dart throw in redraft leagues.


Injury Patriots release Jordan Matthews
Suffered significant hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Aug 1, 1:00 pm

New England Patriots
According to a league source, the #Patriots have released WR Jordan Matthews. He had suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday’s practice. (Jim McBride on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Reports surfaced that Matthews had suffered a significant hamstring injury and would likely miss most of training camp. The Patriots ultimately decided to cut the wide receiver who was working in a rotation opposite Chris Hogan. With Matthews released and Julian Edelman scheduled to miss the first 4 games of the season, the door is open for Kenny Britt, Malcolm Mitchell and Phillip Dorsett to earn more opportunities.
