Patriots WR Julian Edelman back from suspension

Monday, October 1, 2018, 9:34am

NESN - [Full Article]

As of Oct. 1 at 12 a.m. ET, the New England Patriots officially added another weapon to their offensive arsenal. Wide receiver Julian Edelman’s suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy ended at midnight. He now can return to Gillette Stadium, practice and talk football with players and coaches.

Related players: Josh Gordon, Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, Cordarrelle Patterson

Fantasy Impact:

Edelman will return atop a Patriots wide receiver depth chart that also includes Hogan, Dorsett, Gordon and Patterson. Hogan, Dorsett and Patterson are most likely to see their snaps decrease with Edelman back in the fold. Gordon played 18 snaps in his Patriots debut Sunday, but his work figures to increase as he gets more comfortable in the offense.

Scouting Report

Week 19 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers go west to east for the second consecutive week to take on the Patriots in New England with a trip to the AFC Championship game on the line. New England is a shrinking four-point favorite with a middle-of-the-pack implied team total of 25.5 points. The Chargers rank top five in aFPA to QBs, which makes Tom Brady a very risky option in the divisional round. Even though the Chargers rank top five in aFPA to WRs as well, Julian Edelman should still work as the primary pass catcher this week, making him an elite WR option. However, no other Patriots pass catcher can be ranked as more than a contrarian dart throw this week.
