Draft note
by John Paulsen
In 13 games (including the playoffs), Edelman played at a 102-catch, 1232-yard, 7.4-touchdown pace. Rob Gronkowski has retired, which will leave Edelman as the primary weapon in the passing game, if he isn’t already. In the 11 games since 2016 with Gronkowski sidelined, Edelman has averaged 6.9 catches for 84 yards and 0.27 touchdowns per game. Those are solid WR1 numbers in PPR and half-PPR formats, yet Edelman is going off the board as a midrange WR2.

NE WR Julian Edelman - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs Miami Dolphins
Julian Edelman is having the best fantasy season of his career, ranking as the WR7 through Week 17. Just when it looked like a knee injury might be a death knell for Julian Edelman's end-of-season fantasy value after a Week 15 dud, he rebounded somewhat with a WR31 performance in Week 16. It seems likely that if the Patriots final game had no bearing on their playoff seeding, they would rest Edelman for the playoffs, but they don't have that luxury. His snap shares of 62% and 71% over the past two weeks were his lowest of the season by a large margin, as he averaged a 90% snap share from Weeks 1-13.

The Dolphins have the highest aFPA to wide receivers, and receivers lining up in the slot as Edelman regularly does have taken advantage of this secondary repeatedly. Edelman's lowered snap count could be a limiting factor, and if the Patriots can build a comfortable lead early, Belichick would probably jump at the chance to rest him. If Week 16 was an indicator that Edelman is improving quickly from his injury, he has a high ceiling in this matchup. He's not without risk, and you'll have to pay up in DFS to start him, as he's got a top-ten price on both DraftKings and FanDuel.
