Houston receiver Patrick Edwards had 228 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the Cotton Bowl victory.
Edwards was quarterback Case Keenum's favorite toy all season as he caught 88 passes and 20 touchdowns this season, including today's win. The senior's 20 scores should be easily the most in the country, barring any minor miracles in the remaining bowl games to be played. Edwards' 228 yards were the second-most of the season, trailing only the incredible 318 yards he amassed on Oct. 27 against Rice. Mon, Jan 2, 2012 04:03:00 PM

Houston’s Patrick Edwards had 318 yards receiving and 5 touchdowns in Houston’s 73-34 win over Rice.

That’s a lot of action for seven receptions. Edwards averaged a remarkable 45.4 per catch, which seems all the more remarkable in that his long was 64. With more than 300 yards and such a bloated average, one would think an 80-plus yard catch would be somewhere in the mix. The effort was Edwards’ fifth 100-yard game of the season and put him over 1,000 yards for the third straight season. He now has 11 TDs.

Freshman quarterback David Piland appears to have found his favorite target in wide receiver Patrick Edwards as he connected with him nine times for 169 yards and three touchdowns against Rice.

If these two continue to build a rapport with one another, Edwards could be a nice WR3 in deeper leagues.

Before Case Keenum left the game with what appeared to be a head injury, his favorite target of the night was speedster Patrick Edwards.  Edwards finished his night with six catches for 118 yards.  Edwards had numerous chances to score, but was held out of the end zone.

With Houston, any receiver could have a big day but Edwards is a familiar target and is the team's top outside receiver.

Today marks the anniversary of Houston wide receiver Patrick Edwards' gruesome collision with a sideline cart, breaking Edwards' leg in two places (click on the link below if you dare).  The date, however, doesn't seem to bother Edwards as he says he is starting to have fun again. “I felt like my old self,” Edwards also said.

Much attention has been put on the touchdown production from Houston wide receivers of late.  But in my opinion if you have a guy on your roster with the last name of Edwards, Carrier or Cleveland and they play wide receiver for the Houston Cougars, they should be in your fantasy lineup.

“I'm ready to play,” Houston wide receiver Patrick Edwards (broken leg) said . “I'm just ready to go out there and play.”

According to his teammates and coaches Edwards has picked up right where he left off last October.  “He's already better than he was before,” Cougars receiver Tyron Carrier said. “Some injuries cripple people. Sometimes injuries make you better. It made him a lot better. He's way faster than what he was last year.”   Edwards is a great value pick if you still have a draft this weekend.

Edwards was turning into the top receiving threat for the Cougars before he broke his leg running into a cart on the sideline against Marshall. If he can make a full recovery, he will certainly challenge Tyron Carrier as the Cougs' best fantasy wide receiver.
