Julian Edelman caught 5-of-13 targets for 87 yards in Super Bowl 51 against the Falcons.
He also rushed once for two yards and threw an incomplete pass. Eight straight Tom Brady targets to Edelman fell incomplete in the second and third quarters, but Edelman came through in the clutch with a David Tyree-esque 23-yard reception in the fourth frame that helped send the game to O.T., securing Brady's pass after it hit Robert Alford's foot. Turning 31 in May, Edelman has shown few or no signs of slowdown. He'll be a WR2 in 2017 fantasy drafts. Feb 5 - 10:50 PM

Julian Edelman snagged eight-of-10 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.

Edelman has been rolling since Rob Gronkowski went out with a season-ending back injury and that trend continued in Sunday’s AFC title game. He ate up 41 yards on a catch-and-run on the Patriots’ opening drive and never took his foot off the gas. Edelman scored his fifth career playoff touchdown on a 10-yard strike from Tom Brady late in the third quarter. He’s now the Patriots all-time leader in postseason receiving yards with 937 and also set an NFL record with Chris Hogan for the most receiving yards by two teammates in a postseason game. This marks Edelman’s third trip to the Super Bowl.
Jan 22 - 9:59 PM

Julian Edelman caught 8-of-13 targets for 137 yards in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Texans.

Edelman was sitting on one catch for six yards deep into the first half before improvising downfield with Tom Brady and adjusting for a 48-yard bomb, beating Texans CB Kareem Jackson. Edelman got white hot in the third quarter, torching Jackson incessantly in the short, intermediate, and deep passing games. As the Patriots' running game struggled against a stout Texans run defense, Edelman was leaned on to move the chains. He can expect another double-digit-target workload in the Conference Championship Round.
Jan 14 - 11:46 PM

Julian Edelman caught 8-of-13 targets for 151 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

His highlight-reel play was a 77-yard catch-and-run score on which Michael Floyd threw a vicious downfield block, nearly concussing Dolphins CB Tony Lippett. Edelman finishes his age-30 campaign with 98 receptions, becoming the focal point of New England's passing game in the absence of Rob Gronkowski. Edelman will get Week 18 to rest before returning for the Divisional Round.
Jan 1 - 5:17 PM

Julian Edelman delivered five catches for 89 yards on eight targets Saturday in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Jets.

Edelman was targeted in the end zone during the second quarter but couldn’t reel it in. Jets corner Justin Burris was defending him on the play. Edelman bounced back with a 35-yard catch later in the same quarter. That was his longest gain of the season. He didn’t catch any of Tom Brady’s three touchdown passes but still led the team in receiving yards for the fourth time in the last five games. Edelman is now 45 yards from his second 1,000-yard season. He’ll aim for that milestone next week against Miami.

Julian Edelman caught 6-of-12 targets for 75 yards in the Patriots' Week 15 win over the Broncos.

That's not a bad outing against Chris Harris and the Broncos. Edelman now has 67 targets over his past five games. He's going to eat up the Jets in Week 16, and will be a WR1 for the fantasy finals.

Julian Edelman caught 7-of-15 targets for 73 yards in the Patriots' Week 14 win over the Ravens.

Edelman leads the league in targets since the Patriots' Week 9 bye, seeing target counts of nine, 17, 11, 12, and 15 in the five games. He's easily been the biggest beneficiary since Rob Gronkowski (back) was hurt. Edelman wasn't able to do a whole lot in this one and was chewed out by Tom Brady early in the first quarter after stopping his route on a 3rd-and-20 deep shot down the middle into the end zone. The two quickly made up, and Edelman continues to be an elite PPR player. He'll face a tough Week 15 test at Denver against the Broncos' elite pass defense.

Julian Edelman (foot) has been removed from the Patriots' injury report.

Edelman never seemed hurt to begin with. He's in the WR1 mix against the Ravens.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 04:26:00 PM

Julian Edelman caught 8-of-12 targets for 101 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Rams.

He lost a ninth catch on a holding penalty back at the line. The Patriots attacked the Rams with a ball-out-quick passing game in order to mitigate the impact of Los Angeles' talented defensive line. The Pats also put double and triple teams on DT Aaron Donald. Edelman took over as the focal point of this offensive approach and was no match for Lamarcus Joyner in the slot. Edelman has earned every-week WR1 treatment heading into a Week 14 date with the Ravens on Monday Night Football.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 04:33:00 PM

The Boston Herald reports Julian Edelman's oft-troublesome foot has "progressed to the point where (the Patriots) would like it to be."

Howe added, "Don't be surprised if he starts to take off down the stretch," meaning have a big finish. The Patriots certainly need a big finish from Edelman after losing Rob Gronkowski for the season. Edelman's foot has been managed, never turning in full practices and sometimes taking practices off entirely. He has played in every game this season and has showed improved chemistry with Tom Brady in recent weeks. Edelman is now an every-week fantasy WR1.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 11:58:00 AM

Julian Edelman (foot) is active for Week 13 against the Rams.

As expected. He's a WR1 the rest of the way with Rob Gronkowski done for the year.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 11:39:00 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Julian Edelman (foot) will play Week 13 against the Rams.

The focal point of the passing offense with Rob Gronkowski (back) done for the season, Edelman saw 17 targets with Gronk sidelined Week 11 against the 49ers. While he is unlikely to see that big of a workload most weeks, he should average double-digit targets the rest of the way. That puts him back in the WR1 conversation.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 08:51:00 AM

Julian Edelman (foot) is questionable for Week 13 against the Rams.

Edelman has been a limited participant at practice the last two days. He'll be good to go on Sunday and should see a monster workload with Rob Gronkowski recovering from back surgery. Edelman has put himself back in the WR1 conversation.
Fri, Dec 2, 2016 04:20:00 PM

Julian Edelman (foot) returned to Patriots practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Edelman will be a highly-targeted, low-end WR1 against the Rams. He's been soaking up looks in Rob Gronkowski's absence.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 04:49:00 PM

The Boston Herald reports Julian Edelman's (foot) absence from Wednesday's practice is "nothing to worry about."

The Patriots gave a bunch of players days off Wednesday. The player we have the least amount of concern about is Edelman, who is dealing with a chronic foot injury but it is merely being managed. He hasn't missed a game all year.
