Draft note
by John Paulsen
Edelman finished last season as the No. 14 half-PPR receiver, but he’s another year older (34) and lost his BFF Tom Brady, so the passing game is bound to regress even though the Patriots signed Cam Newton to replace him. Brady threw for 4,057 yards and 24 touchdowns last year, and Newton has only cleared 3,600 yards once in the last seven seasons and has averaged 22.8 touchdown passes per season in his first eight seasons. Edelman should be the top target in the Patriots’ talent-deprived receiving corps. Rob Gronkowski is gone, so Edelman’s main competition is James White, N’Keal Harry and Mohamed Sanu (barring another surprise signing--Antonio Brown?!?). Edelman is currently being drafted as a high-end WR4, but that’s bound to change now that Newton is in tow.

NE WR Julian Edelman - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. San Francisco 49ers
Julian Edelman's fantasy profile has deteriorated alongside the New England passing game in recent weeks. Edelman has seven catches in his last three games and has totaled 66 yards in that time. Edelman's 179-yard game in Week 2 feels like the distant past at this point, and New England will not be switching up their run-first philosophy any time soon with Cam Newton back under center. The 49ers have been tough against slot receivers, but recently lost K'Waun Williams to injury, meaning Edelman will face off primarily with backups on Sunday. The matchup is Edelman's saving grace for consideration as an unexciting WR3 in PPR formats, but his floor is extremely low.
