Julian Edelman is active for Week 12 against the Lions.

He was listed as probable. The Pats' Week 12 inactives are OG Cameron Fleming, RB James White, WR Aaron Dobson, DT Dominique Easley, DE Chandler Jones, CB Malcolm Butler, and OG Jordan Devey.
Nov 23 - 11:34 AM

Julian Edelman (thigh) is listed as probable for Week 12.

He'll be a fantasy WR3 in Sunday's bout with the Lions.
Nov 21 - 4:28 PM

Julian Edelman (thigh) remained limited on Thursday.

Edelman tweaked his thigh in Sunday's win over the Colts, but played through the injury. He should be ready to roll as a WR3 against the Lions.
Nov 20 - 5:26 PM

Julian Edelman (thigh) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Edelman played a season-low 35 snaps on Sunday night after going down in the first quarter. His status will be worth monitoring, but he should play in Week 12. Edelman will be a mid-range WR3 against Detroit.
Nov 19 - 4:42 PM

Julian Edelman played on a season-low 35 snaps in Sunday night's win over the Colts.

Edelman played on 10 of the first 12 snaps, but finished with 35-of-73. It's likely a result of the fall he took near the sideline during the first quarter, when he clearly got up slowly. Edelman still finished with 5-50-0, but his status will be worth monitoring this week.

Julian Edelman had five catches for 50 yards in Sunday night's Week 11 win over the Colts.

He was targeted a team-high eight times, including two drops. Edelman's biggest contribution was a critical block on Rob Gronkowski's 26-yard touchdown. He remains the No. 1 option, but continues to be limited by his lack of scoring upside. Edelman will be a mid-range WR3 in Week 12 against Detroit.
Nov 17 - 1:14 AM

Julian Edelman caught 9-of-10 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in New England's Week 9 throttling of the Broncos, adding a second score on an 84-yard punt return.

The catches and yards were both Edelman's most since Week 6, but it was his second-quarter special teams score that really broke the game open. Edelman heads into the Patriots' bye week averaging a weekly 6/62. That's WR3 material in standard leagues, but he's a high-floor option.
Nov 2 - 8:34 PM

Julian Edelman caught 1-of-4 targets for 14 yards in New England's Week 8 rout of the Bears.

Edelman could have had a second catch, but committed an ugly drop. Tom Brady's supposed No. 1 receiver took a backseat as Rob Gronkowski and Brandon LaFell combined for 20 targets. With the Pats going more vertical since their embarrassing Week 4 loss to the Chiefs, Edelman has a modest 19 catches over his past four games. With half the season in the books, the slot maven is on pace for 90/934/2. He's falling back to mid-range WR3 status in standard leagues.
Oct 26 - 6:19 PM

Julian Edelman caught 4-of-9 targets for 44 yards in New England's Week 7 win over the Jets, adding an eight-yard rush.

It wasn't the bonanza Edelman owners were looking forward to against the Jets' weak secondary. Edelman hurt his own cause with two brutal drops. Tonight was just the second time in seven 2014 efforts that Edelman caught fewer than five passes. He'll remain a mid-range WR2 for New England's Week 8 hosting of the Bears.
Oct 17 - 12:04 AM

Julian Edelman caught nine passes for 91 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win over Buffalo.

He added 10 yards on an end-around in the first quarter. Edelman didn't have any notable plays outside of a pass interference call in the end-zone. He was mostly targeted on check downs and finished with a team-high 12 targets. With Tom Brady getting back on track, Edelman is a locked-in WR2.
Oct 12 - 5:53 PM

Julian Edelman caught five passes for 35 yards in the Patriots' Week 5 win over the Bengals.

Edelman struggled to get open playing against physical corners for the second straight week. He was the No. 2 option in the pass game, with Tom Brady targeting his tight ends 16 times. Edelman will look to get on track against Buffalo's undersized secondary in Week 6. He has just nine catches for 58 yards over the last two games.
Oct 6 - 1:02 AM

Julian Edelman caught four passes for 23 yards in the Patriots' Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.

Edelman was targeted eight times on the night, but couldn't win at all against the Chiefs' bigger corners. That left Brandon LaFell to do most of the "damage" the Patriots could muster in the 41-14 blowout loss. After four games, Edelman is on pace for a 104-1,132-4 receiving line. He should definitely come close to those numbers if he stays healthy. Edelman is a locked-in WR2.
Sep 30 - 12:35 AM

Julian Edelman (back) is absent from the Week 4 injury report.

Edelman was "limited" with a back issue last week. Tom Brady's most reliable target this season, Edelman is locked in as a WR2 in a week where six teams are on bye.
Sep 25 - 5:47 PM

Julian Edelman had 10 catches for 84 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over Oakland.

Edelman's 13 targets led the Patriots, and he was the clear No. 1 option. It was his fourth career game with at least 10 receptions. Edelman's only downside is he that continues to lose looks to Rob Gronkowski and Shane Vereen in the red-zone. He's a WR2 with upside in PPR formats.
