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 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at New York Jets
Julian Edelman led all Patriots wide receivers in snap share in Week 6 at 89% and turned 15 targets in a favorable matchup with the New York Giants into nine receptions for 113 yards, good for a WR10 fantasy ranking for the week. Edelman is averaging 9.3 targets per game, and he's the WR14 overall through Week 6.

Edelman draws primary coverage from Jets cornerback Brian Poole in Week 7, and while Poole as performed well so far, he's not a reason to fade Edelman. Edelman has demonstrated the ability to create separation from nearly anyone covering him, as his 10th-most 2.04 average yards of target separation indicates. Edelman's target volume gives him one of the highest floors among all wide receivers, and his 56 total targets tie him for fifth among all wide receivers. He's an easy start as a WR1 as usual.
