Patriots' Julian Edelman: Extension includes $12 million guaranteed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman's two-year contract extension with the Patriots includes an $8 million signing bonus, as well as $12 million in guaranteed money, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Edelman, who turned 33 on Wednesday, is thus under contract with the Patriots through 2021. Though he missed the first four games of the 2018 regular season due to a suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, Edelman still managed to rack up 100 catches for 1,238 yards and six TDs in 15 games (playoffs included). He then capped off his strong campaign by being named the MVP of Super Bowl LIII. Now further removed from the torn ACL that cost him the 2017 season, Edelman remains QB Tom Brady's top passing target, an arrangement that ensures the slot maven fantasy relevance, especially in PPR formats.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Finalizing extension with Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman is finalizing a multi-year contract extension with the Patriots, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The 2019 Super Bowl MVP was entering the final year of his contract, so an extension was expected to get done at some point this offseason. Due to an ACL tear in 2017 and a four-game suspension to kick off his 2018 campaign, Edelman has not played a full season of football since 2016, but Tom Brady's most reliable wideout will remain alongside him for a 10th season and more with this extension.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Snags Super Bowl MVP honors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman brought in 10 of 12 targets for 141 yards in the Patriots' 13-3 win over the Rams in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday. He also rushed once for eight yards and returned two punts for two yards.

Edelman was the no-brainer choice for Super Bowl MVP honors on a remarkable night where he constantly seemed to befuddle the Rams' secondary. The shifty veteran became the seventh wide receiver in NFL history to garner the award, and the second one in franchise history alongside Deion Branch. Seven of the receptions and 93 of Edelman's yards came in the first half, but he provided his game-long 27-yard grab on the first possession of the third quarter. Having put a sensational cap on a season that began with a four-game suspension -- and having missed the 2017 campaign due to an ACL tear -- Edelman will look forward to his first full season since 2016 when the Patriots begin defense of their sixth Super Bowl title next September.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Totals 96 receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman caught seven of 10 targets for 96 yards during Sunday's 37-31 AFC Championship Game overtime win over the Chiefs.

Edelman was quiet through the early stages of the contest, but he made several big plays late in regulation and overtime to boost his overall line. After leading the team in targets, catches and receiving yardage, the veteran now has 16 receptions (on 23 targets) for 247 yards through a pair of postseason games. Edelman will be a key cog in the passing attack once again in the Super Bowl against a Rams team that has been vulnerable to opposing wideouts this season.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Moves to second in playoff catches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Finishes strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Paces passing game in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman caught six of 10 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-12 win over Buffalo.

Edelman was the lone productive target for quarterback Tom Brady, accounting for more than half of his 126 passing yards. His touchdown was a 32-yarder on fourth down in the third quarter. With fellow wide receiver Josh Gordon (suspension) away from the team now, Edelman should see all the targets he can handle against the Jets in Week 17.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Strong effort in Week 15 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Gets into end zone Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman hauled in nine of 12 targets, turning in 86 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Dolphins.

Edelman has paced all New England pass catchers with nine targets per game since returning from suspension in Week 5, edging scatback James White for that distinction (8.6 targets per contest). Certainly the most trusted wide receiver among Tom Brady's arsenal of offensive weapons, Edelman has transformed a healthy workload into steady fantasy production, with at least four catches or a touchdown in eight of his nine appearances. In Week 15, he'll oppose a Steelers defense that entered the weekend as one the NFL's sturdier units against opposing wideouts, with a catch rate of 61.7 percent and fewer than 2,000 receiving yards allowed to the position this year (among league's 13 best units in both categories).

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Catches three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Scores key touchdown in Week 12 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Practices fully
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday.

The Patriots' bye week gave Edelman the healing time he needed to get ready for Sunday's game against the Jets. As a result, he's poised to maintain his high-volume role in the New England offense this weekend.

November 14, 2018 02:33 PM
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Present for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (ankle) was on the field for Wednesday's practice, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

Wednesday's practice is the only session of the week for the Patriots, who are on bye. Edelman was forced out of this past Sunday's loss to the Titans, but the severity of his ankle injury has subsequently been downplayed. While it's expected Edelman will be limited to some degree at practice next week, the assumption remains that he'll be able to fill his usual starting role in the slot Nov. 25 against the Jets.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Avoids serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The ankle injury Edelman suffered Sunday against the Titans is not considered serious, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Per the report, Edelman is not expected to miss much, if any, time. Working in his favor is that the Patriots are on bye Week 11, which will afford Edelman added healing time in advance of the team's Nov. 25 tilt against the Jets. As that contest draws closer, we'd expect Edelman to be listed as a limited practice participant, but for now his chances of being ready to play Week 12 are looking favorable.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Exits game with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman was forced out of Sunday's game against the Titans in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.

Prior to his exit from the contest, Edelman -- who was previously dealing with an ankle issue before being removed from the Patriots' injury report Friday -- caught nine of his 12 targets for 104 yards. He'll no doubt benefit from the added healing time provided by the team's upcoming Week 11 bye.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Good to go this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (ankle) does not carry a Week 10 injury designation in advance of Sunday's game against the Titans.

After being limited Wednesday and Thursday, both Edelman and Cordarrelle Patterson (neck) were removed from the team's injury report Friday. As a result, the Patriots list six players as questionable this week, in a game that will feature a coaching matchup between Bill Belichick and one of his former players, Mike Vrabel. Now minus an injury designation, Edelman is poised to maintain his high volume role in the New England offense on Sunday.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Logs limited session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (ankle) was listed as limited at Wednesday's walk-through practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Edelman logged 64 of 71 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Packers, hauling in six of his 10 targets for 71 yards, rushing twice for 28 yards and completing a 37-yard pass. With no reported setbacks coming out of that contest, it's assumed his limitations Wednesday were mainly for maintenance purposes.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Contributes in three ways
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman caught six passes for 71 yards, rushed two times for 28 yards, and completed his only pass attempt for 37 yards in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Packers.

Edelman literally contributed every way he could Sunday, getting involved on some trickery in the second half to help kickstart the Patriots' offense. He even almost nabbed a pass intended for Josh Gordon in the fourth quarter, but he let up at the last second to allow his teammate to make a better play on the ball and score a long touchdown. Gordon's production has fluctuated based on whether or not Rob Gronkowski (back/ankle) has been in the lineup, but Edelman's role (8.8 targets per game) appears to be steady regardless of whether or not the star tight end suits up, making him the more consistent wide receiving option heading into a Week 10 matchup with the Titans.

November 5, 2018 05:56 PM
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Suits up Sunday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday night's game against the Packers.

Edelman played 96.1 percent of the Patriots' offensive snaps in Week 8, and assuming no setbacks Sunday night, he should see a steady flow of targets as QB Tom Brady's most trusted receiving option in a passing attack minus star tight end Rob Gronkowski.

November 4, 2018 12:08 PM
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Expected to play Sunday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edelman (ankle) is expected to play Sunday night against the Packers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Good news for those hoping to use the Patriots' PPR ace in Week 9 fantasy lineups. He'll be needed by the team Sunday, especially with the status of key play-makers Rob Gronkowski (back) and RB Sony Michel (knee) to be determined in pre-game warmups.
