Julian Edelman Fantasy Football News 2019

Patriots WR Julian Edelman is "optimistic" about playing through knee and shoulder issues against the Bengals today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but he adds that "the team wants to see [Edelman] work out in the AM to be sure." As long as Edelman is active for the game, he should be in most fantasy football lineups.

The Patriots expect WR Julian Edelman (shoulder) and WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) to play through their "questionable" tags against the Chiefs today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Play them in fantasy as you normally would.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week, but we've heard nothing to suggest he’ll be limited today. WRs Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are inactive, leaving rookies N’Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers as New England’s #2 and #3 WRs.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett still hadn't cleared the concussion protocol as of Saturday morning, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. Both Dorsett and WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) are looking very iffy for tomorrow's game against the Cowboys. Their absences would mean more playing time for rookie WRs N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers -- and more targets for WR Julian Edelman, RB James White and TE Ben Watson.

The Patriots list WR Julian Edelman (shoulder) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week, but we've heard nothing to suggest that he's in danger of missing this game. Keep Edelman penciled into fantasy lineups for now. We'll let you know if something changes.

The forecast for today's Browns-Patriots game calls for a 100% chance of rain, with heavy rainfall at times possible. The wind will be at just 7-14 mph, so that shouldn't have a major impact. But this will be a wet one. We've made some slight adjustments to our projections for this game.

The Patriots have traded a 2nd-round pick to the Falcons in exchange for WR Mohamed Sanu. New England tried to acquire Sanu during this spring's draft, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, so it's clearly a player the team covets. Sanu was a steady producer in Atlanta, averaging 4.2 catches and 47 yards per game over the past 3+ seasons. He played primarily in the slot for the Falcons, but we'll see how he fits into the Patriots' WR corps alongside Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon (once he's back from his knee injury), Phillip Dorsett and Jakobi Meyers. When everyone's healthy, it figures to be Edelman, Gordon and Sanu in 3-WR sets. Sanu has a brand new offense to learn, though. And note that he's going from the league's 2nd pass-heaviest offense to its 14th run-heaviest. Sanu is worth stashing in most fantasy leagues but won't be a recommended Week 8 starter. The Falcons, meanwhile, figures to roll with either Justin Hardy or Russell Gage as the #3 WR. But Sanu's departure will mostly just free up extra targets for Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper.

The forecast for Thursday night's game between the Giants and Patriots calls for rain and wind gusts of 30+ mph. That's enough to impact the passing and kicking games. Hopefully you're not relying on anything in New York's passing game. We nudged QB Tom Brady and WRs Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon down the Week 6 Rankings -- but they all still sit safely inside starter territory in this pristine matchup. Try to avoid both Ks in this game.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (chest) is active for today’s game against the Redskins. He played through this injury last week and should be ready for his usual role today.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (chest) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. Although he mustered just 4 catches for 30 scoreless yards vs. Buffalo last week, he played 95% of the offensive snaps, so it doesn’t seem like the chest injury was a real factor. We like Edelman to bounce back in a much easier Week 5 matchup.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (chest) is active for today’s game against the Bills. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported this morning that Edelman’s snaps could be limited, so there’s elevated risk here. But we liked Edelman’s matchup against slot CB Siran Neal.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ribs) is expected to play today but adds that his snaps could be limited. That obviously adds risk to his Week 4 profile. Even if his snaps are limited, though, we'd expect him to be out there in passing situations. We'll keep an eye out for further updates, but we're sticking with Edelman as a WR2.

NFL Network's Michael Giardi reports that Patriots WR Julian Edelman is traveling with the team to Buffalo and that the "expectation is he plays." That's been our expectation all week as well, given that Edelman has been practicing. There will likely be some pain-tolerance question to Edelman against the Bills, but his toughness has rarely been questioned. There's some risk to Edelman but also lots of reception upside.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bills after a limited week of practice. His injury reportedly isn’t serious, and the New England media has seemed optimistic about his chances of playing this weekend. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. If Edelman can’t go, rookie Jakobi Meyers would step in as the Patriots’ slot receiver.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (chest) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. The fact that he was out there at all early in the week is good news. We continue to expect Edelman to play against the Bills on Sunday. We'll get another update on his status Thursday afternoon.

"He'll be good," a source tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport about Patriots WR Julian Edelman. Edelman avoided structural damage to his ribs, so it'll probably be a pain-management issue going forward. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation this week, but we like his chances of playing Sunday against the Bills.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman suffered a chest injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we learn more. Sans Edelman, Josh Gordon, Phillip Dorsett and Jakobi Meyers would be New England's top 3 WRs.

Update: Edelman has been ruled out for the day. New England's 30-7 lead might have something to do with that, but we'll look for an update on Edelman's injury.

Update: X-rays on Edelman's ribs came back clean, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
