NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that an MRI on Patriots WR Julian Edelman's right knee confirmed a "complete ACL tear." He's done for the season and is tasked with a lengthy rehab. If all goes smoothly, he'll be ready for the start of training camp next year. But Edelman will be 32 years old at that point. He's signed in New England through the 2019 season with cap hits of $5.2 and $4.7 million over the next 2 seasons. We've already removed Edelman from the 2017 WR rankings and bumped up Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola. QB Tom Brady's projections took a slight hit, but he's still flush with weapons and sitting 2nd in the QB rankings.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

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.
