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 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs Kansas City Chiefs
The Patriots' Week 13 game against the Texans was Julian Edelman's seventh straight game with ten or more targets. He remains the second-most targeted wide receiver behind Michael Thomas, and his WR9 finish last week bumped him up to the WR8 for the season. Edelman is Brady's most reliable target, and despite a nagging shoulder injury, that should translate into massive fantasy value in these next few playoff weeks. Edelman also leads all NFL wide receivers with 18 red-zone targets, and his touchdown total of five is the only thing that's keeping out of the top five fantasy scorers at the position.

Edelman's target volume makes him virtually matchup proof, which is valuable this week against a Chiefs defense that ranks fourth in aFPA to wide receivers. The defensive back duo of Tyrann Mathieu and Kendall Fuller cover the slot for Kansas City, but neither is skilled enough to win the majority of their snaps against Edelman. If Kansas City finds offensive success against the Patriots defense, the Patriots will have to lean on the passing game more heavily, and Edelman will continue to earn regular red-zone targets. Start him confidently as a WR1.
