Edelman turned 13 targets into nine catches for 151 yards in Sunday's 41-28 divisional-round win over the Chargers, while also adding a seven-yard carry. Edelman surpassed Reggie Wayne (93) for the second-most postseason receptions of all time, as his 98 catches are eclipsed only by Jerry Rice's gargantuan total of 151. While Edelman's no Rice, he's the unquestioned No. 1 wide receiver in New England heading into what should be a high-scoring AFC championship game in Kansas City next Sunday.
Edelman caught five of six targets for 69 yards and a touchdown while adding 24 yards on two carries in Sunday's 38-3 win over the Jets. He finishes the season with 74 catches for 850 yards and six touchdowns. Edelman's five-yard touchdown completed the scoring with 3:26 remaining. He's the clear-cut No. 1 wide receiver for New England heading into the playoffs, which is quite a feat for a guy who couldn't even play in the season's first four contests due to a PED-related suspension.
Edelman brought in seven of 11 targets for 90 yards in the Patriots' 17-10 loss to the Steelers on Sunday. Edelman paced the Patriots in receptions and receiving yardage, and his 34-yard grab coming out of the two-minute warning set New England up at the Steelers' 35-yard line. However, Tom Brady could only muster a trio of short completions to James White the rest of the way, with his final pass intended for Edelman near the goal line on fourth down failing to connect. From an individual perspective, it was another strong performance for the veteran wideout, and he's now racked up 16 receptions and a touchdown on 23 targets over the last pair of contests. He'll look to keep his productive run during fantasy postseason going against the Bills in Week 16.
Edelman logged 66 out of a possible 74 snaps on offense in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Vikings, en route to carrying two times for 35 yards and hauling in three of his eight targets for 25 yards. Edelman has had better days in terms of efficiency, but he remains heavily involved in the Patriots offense and is therefore a solid option in PPR formats thanks to his ample snap count and reliable target share.
Edelman (ankle) caught four of five targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Jets. Edelman's 21-yard touchdown broke a 13-13 tie with 1:52 remaining in the third quarter. He's eclipsed 50 yards in six of seven games played this season and has three touchdowns to boot, so roll Edelman out with confidence against the Vikings in Week 13.
