According to ESPN, citing a source, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman recently had surgery on his left foot. This relates to the injury that sidelined the slot receiver for seven games to close out last regular season before he returned to play in each of New England’s playoff games.

Though he’s going to reportedly “return for training camp,” it will be interesting to see what Edelman’s participation is as the OTA program transitions to mini-camp and then the start of training camp.

Fantasy Impact:

In 28 games over the past two seasons (including the playoffs), Edelman has averaged 7.0 catches for 75 yards and 0.43 TD on 10.3 targets per game. That works out to low-end WR1 numbers in PPR formats, so as long as he's healthy, he should provide good value in the 3rd round of fantasy drafts.

With the Patriots receiving corps ailing, one backup has stepped up and seized the opportunity in front of him.

The respective absences of Julian Edelman (foot) and Danny Amendola (knee) have opened the door for Keshawn Martin to get extended first-team reps.

When Brady was under duress in last Sunday's loss to the Jets, he began to get tunnel vision for one wide-out, and it wasn't Brandon LaFell, the receiver he won a Lombardi Trophy with last February.

Brady targeted Martin 11 times (seven catches, 68 yards). He threw to LaFell once.

Fantasy Impact:

Martin's name started to emerge soon after Edelman went down. Martin was battling his own injuries so it took a little longer, but Martin seems to be a key part of the offense and earning Brady's trust with all the injuries to the position in New England.
