  • Falcons' Bryan Edwards: Traded to Atlanta

    The Raiders traded Edwards and a 2023 seventh-round pick to the Falcons on Friday in exchange for Atlanta's 2023 fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The Falcons continue to add to their pass-catching corps with the addition of another big-bodied wideout. Edwards was faced an uphill battle for target volume in Las Vegas with the acquisition of Davante Adams, but the 6-foot-3 wide receiver has a chance to carve out a solid role in Atlanta. The Falcons overhauled the wideout group this offseason in the wake of Calvin Ridley's suspension, led by the selection of Drake London in the first round; however, behind the rookie and phenom tight end Kyle Pitts, the Falcons will likely have a healthy competition for targets leading up to and during the 2022 campaign.

  • Raiders' Bryan Edwards: Facing added competition

    Edwards appeared likely to enter his third NFL season as the No. 3 option at wide receiver for the Raiders following the team's trade for first-team All-Pro Davante Adams, but the recent addition of Demarcus Robinson could create a job battle for Edwards, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

    Edwards' sophomore campaign in Las Vegas included a 34-571-3 line on 59 targets in 16 games, but he fell well behind teammates Hunter Renfrow and Zay Jones from a production standpoint throughout the latter half of the 2021 regular season. Jones has since departed for Jacksonville, but the aforementioned Adams' arrival brings another volume-heavy playmaker to an aerial attack that also features tight end Darren Waller. Edwards has the physical tools to beat out Robinson for a starting job opposite Adams with Renfrow occupying the slot, but Robinson has experience on his side with 42 starts in 97 career games with his former squad in Kansas City.

  • Raiders' Bryan Edwards: Leads team in receiving yards Sunday

    Edwards caught four of five targets for 63 yards in Sunday's overtime thriller against the Chargers, which ended in a 35-32 victory for the Raiders.

    Edwards saw north of four targets Sunday night for just the second time since Week 5, bringing his regular season totals to 34 catches for 571 yards and three touchdowns on 59 targets in 16 games. The 2020 third-rounder failed to match the production of fellow receivers Hunter Renfrow and Zay Jones through the latter half of his sophomore campaign, but Edwards still showed signs of improvement after a rookie season that was derailed by ankle and foot injuries. He'll remain involved on the outside this weekend as the Raiders head to Cincinnati for a wild-card contest against the Bengals.

  • Raiders' Bryan Edwards: Targeted twice in return

    Edwards was unable to haul in either of his two targets during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Colts.

    Edwards was dealt a full workload with 46 offensive snaps in his return from the reserve/COVID-19 list, but the second-year receiver was overshadowed by Zay Jones and Hunter Renfrow, who combined for 15 total catches on 19 targets for 196 yards and a touchdown. Not only has Jones' rapport with quarterback Derek Carr sharpened in recent weeks, but tight end Darren Waller (knee/back/illness) also has a legitimate chance to return to the lineup against the Chargers, so Edwards' target share may remain limited in the Raiders' regular-season finale.

  • Raiders' Bryan Edwards: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    The Raiders activated Edwards (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Edwards returns to the 53-man roster four days after landing on the list, implying that he was asymptomatic upon testing positive for the virus. Though the timing of Edwards' placement on the list prevented him from playing in the Week 16 win over Denver, the brevity of his absence should put him on track to suit up Sunday in Indianapolis without any restrictions. Despite playing greater than 60 percent of the Raiders' offensive snaps in all 14 of his appearances on the season, Edwards has cleared 50 receiving yards on only four occasions.

  • Raiders' Bryan Edwards: Out after landing on COVID-19 list

    The Raiders placed Edwards on the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Sunday's game against the Broncos.

    Quarterback Marcus Mariota was also added to the list Sunday, leaving both players unavailable for the Week 16 matchup. Wideout Dillon Stoner was elevated from the practice squad to provide depth at the position with Edwards away from the team.

  • Raiders' Bryan Edwards: Hits paydirt in win

    Edwards caught three of four targets for eight yards and a touchdown in Monday's 16-14 win over the Browns.

    Edwards' touchdown grab in the first quarter was the only time the Raiders found the end zone in the contest. Despite holding down a steady role on offense all season, the 23-year-old wideout has mostly disappointed, scoring three touchdowns while totaling just 30 receptions for 508 yards over 14 games. With matchups against the Broncos, Colts and Chargers to close out the season, Edwards will remain difficult to trust for fantasy purposes.

  • Raiders' Bryan Edwards: Raiders-Browns moved to Monday

    Edwards and the Raiders will no longer play the Browns on Saturday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Monday at 5 p.m. ET.

    Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Cleveland organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Browns will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Assuming the Week 15 game is played Monday as planned, Edwards and Las Vegas will face a quick turnaround for the Week 16 contest versus the Broncos, which is still expected to be played Sunday, Dec. 26 as scheduled.

  • Raiders' Bryan Edwards: Two catches in blowout loss

    Edwards caught two of three targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 48-9 loss to the Chiefs.

    Edwards was overshadowed once again by fellow receiver Hunter Renfrow, who racked up a career-high 13 receptions for 117 yards and a score as quarterback Derek Carr attempted 45 passes in the blowout defeat. Zay Jones picked up seven targets of his own, while tight end Foster Moreau and running back Josh Jacobs remained active in the Raiders' aerial attack as well. Edwards played less than 70 percent of the team's offensive snaps for a second straight week, and he's caught just nine total passes in six games since the Raiders' Week 8 bye.

  • Raiders' Bryan Edwards: Three grabs in loss

    Edwards caught three of five targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington.

    Even with Derek Carr running out of healthy receiving options, Edwards still didn't see a large role in the offense, although his five targets were his highest volume since Week 5. The second-year wideout can still find himself on the end of the occasional big play, but he otherwise has little fantasy appeal heading into a Week 14 clash with Kansas City.
