    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle) did not suffer a serious injury in Week 10 and is not expected to miss much time, if any, according to a source. He will be monitored, but the outlook is positive.

    Huddle Up: Edelman has been a beast for the Patriots since returning from suspension. He' seen double-digit targets in each of his last three games and has averaged 9.3 targets in the six games in which he's played. You're starting him as long as he's active.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 4:28pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle) registered nine receptions for 104 yards on 12 targets in the Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans, but he left the game late with an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Edelman has two weeks to rest his bumps and bruises with a bye coming up next weekend. When healthy he is a tremendous PPR option, with less value in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 12:42pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 10 game and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots have a bye next week, so Edelman will have time to rest his ankle before playing again. Owners should monitor his practice participation after the bye week to see if he will be in any danger of missing the Week 12 game.

  • Posted: 11/9/2018 1:44pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 9, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Edelman has been a big part of the passing game since returning to the lineup and should continue to be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver against most opponents.

  • Posted: 11/8/2018 1:51pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: Edelman should have a good chance to play this week despite the injury. He has been targeted 20 times over the last two games and has recorded 175 yards during that span. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in all leagues and will have more value in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 11/7/2018 2:33pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: Edelman has been resting during mid-week practices, which is pretty standard across the league for veterans. Circle back around Friday for the official injury designation before deciding on the PPR league option for Week 10.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 8:48pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman posted six receptions for 71 yards on 10 targets in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers and he ran twice for 28 yards. He also had a 37-yard pass to RB James White.

    Huddle Up: Edelman continues to be a solid fantasy option since return from his four-game suspension. He has four or more catches in each of his past five outings, and he has posted 216 total yards from scrimmage over the past two weeks. The Patriots travel to meet the Tennessee Titans in Week 10.

  • Posted: 11/2/2018 2:52pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Nov. 2 and he is listed as questionable for Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Edelman was in the same boat last week and he was able to play. He is a solid WR3 or flex option in PPR formats, and a decent WR4 in standard play.

  • Posted: 11/1/2018 1:47pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Edelman appears to be on track to play in Week 9 and likely will continue to receive plenty of targets during games. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues this week.

  • Posted: 11/1/2018 10:27am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle, illness) returned to practice Thursday, Nov. 1, after sitting out the previous day.

    Huddle Up: Edelman should be fine for the Week 9 Sunday-night matchup against the Packers. He is coming off his most productive outing (nine catches for 104 yards on 10 targets) since debuting in Week 5, and he could figure heavily in the game plan again if TE Rob Gronkowski misses another game or continues to produce at far less than Gronk Level.

  • Posted: 10/31/2018 3:25pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (ankle, illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 31.

    Huddle Up: Edelman probably will be back on the field later in the week. He has been targeted at least seven times in all four of his game this season and is coming off his first 100-yard game. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues in Week 9.

  • Posted: 10/29/2018 9:02pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman posted nine receptions for 104 yards on 10 targets in the Week 8 game against the Buffalo Bills on Monday, Oct. 29. He added two rushes for 13 yards.

    Huddle Up: Edelman was the most effective fantasy option in a game which had very few offensive stars. He was particularly impressive in PPR. He'll be an important option in the pass game when the Packers pay a visit to Gillette Stadium on Sunday night in Week 9.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 3:38pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman finished with five receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Edelman was listed as questionable with a heel injury, but he didn't show any ill effects of the injury. He has found the end zone in back-to-back games and is back as a WR3 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 against the Bills on Monday night.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 6:14am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Edelman was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. The fact that he traveled with the team bodes well for his chances of playing this afternoon and he's worthy of consideration as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 in all fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 10/20/2018 11:17am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) is traveling with the team for their Week 7 game and is still listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: Edelman likely will be active for the Week 7 game and should see plenty of targets during the game. He can be considered at least a No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/19/2018 1:36pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Edelman has recorded 11 receptions and 111 yards in his first two games of the season and should continue to be a popular target for Tom Brady. Edelman should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver in all leagues.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 3:46pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (heel) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Edelman had managed to maintain perfect health since his season debut up until now. However, it could also be the team managing the veteran wide-out's reps. Either way, owners should definitely check up on his status throughout the weekend. He's a quality WR2 if he suits up.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 11:47pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman turned seven targets into four catches for 54 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Edelman posted 54 yards on seven receptions in his season debut last week. Given the influx of weapons in New England and Tom Brady's heavier reliance on James White as an option in the short passing game, the catch and yardage totals are probably the types of performances owners can expect from Edelman going forward. He'll be a serviceable WR3 in PPR leagues again in Week 7 versus the Chicago Bears.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 10:27pm ET

    New England Patriots Julian Edelman was targeted nine times against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Oct. 4, catching seven for 57 yards.

    Huddle Up: New England didn't ease Edelman back in, deploying him in his customary underneath role. While his numbers weren't eye popping, they topped all other Pats wideouts in catches, yards and targets. Edelman is at his best in PPR formats and should be a steady WR3 that'll punch up as an WR2 some weeks.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 2:47pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman was activated from the Reserve/Suspended list Thursday, Oct. 4. The team also released RB Kenjon Barner.

    Huddle Up: Edelman will play in the Week 5 game but may not see his normal workload since he missed the first four games. He can still be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver this week because of the favorable matchup.

  • Posted: 10/2/2018 9:04am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman is now eligible to play after serving a four-game PED suspension. However, Edelman's workout partner and former teammate Rob Ninkovich said the Patriots should take it easy in working Edelman back in after the slot receiver missed the 2017 season with an ACL tear. 'I just hope that he doesn't have too much,' Ninkovich said on this week's Ex-Pats Podcast. 'Everyone's like, 'Julian's back! Feed him the ball!' Yeah, Julian's back. Give him the football. But let's not over-run him into the ground and overdo it when he does have an ACL last year . . . Yeah, it's been a year, but it's still an ACL just like everyone else who has an ACL. It's not easy to come back and just take a guy flying at your knees, your legs, take these hits. When you're coming off an ACL, you didn't really play that much, you didn't really play last year because you had an ACL, and now they're going to give you 15 balls a game? And now you're going to take all those hits and run every route?'

    Huddle Up: The Pats could use the pass-catching help with Tom Brady and the aerial game off to a sluggish start, but it's definitely not wise to expect too much from Edelman early as he is 32 now and hasn't played in a regular-season game since 2016. He's a WR4 for now, with flex upside if you're desperate.

  • Posted: 8/3/2018 6:33pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) said he doesn't have his 'football legs' yet and isn't in the best shape following practice Friday, Aug. 3.

    Huddle Up: Coming off a knee injury and scheduled to serve a four-game suspension to start the year, Edelman won't pay immediate dividends. However, he should be a strong WR3 in PPR formats when he does return. If he slips into WR4 territory, he is worth grabbing.

  • Posted: 6/25/2018 5:08am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman's appeal of his four-game suspension will be heard Monday, June 25, and sources say he plans to mount a vigorous defense that questions the NFL's handling of his case. The substance for which Edelman tested positive wasn't one the league's drug testers recognized. According to sources, he's also contesting the way the documentation and delivery of Edelman's test results were handled.

    Huddle Up: The 32-year-old will still have PPR value, but if he's forced to miss four games, his stock will take a huge hit. His durability and consistency are also concerns, and he'd fall into the WR3 territory if the ban holds up.

  • Posted: 6/7/2018 1:20pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman has not had the appeal of his impending four-game suspension heard by the NFL at this point.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Edelman's suspension remains after the appeal is heard. He is expected to be the No. 1 receiver for the Patriots this season but would lose some fantasy value if he misses the first four games. He can still be a No. 2 receiver in most leagues, but owners would need solid backup plans if he sits.

  • Posted: 6/7/2018 10:47am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman has a four-game suspension looming for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, according to sources. Edelman has appealed the suspension.

    Huddle Up: These suspensions are rarely, if ever, overturned, so plan to be without Edelman for the first quarter of the season. Chris Hogan receives a big bump up in value and has WR2 upside, while Jordan Matthews now demands more attention in mid-to-late rounds. As for Edelman, he falls out of the PPR WR1 conversation.

  • Posted: 5/21/2018 1:11pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) participated in organized team activities Monday, May 21.

    Huddle Up: Edelman is coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament and should be ready for training camp. He likely will be a top option for Tom Brady in the passing game in 2018 and can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

  • Posted: 2/9/2018 11:37am ET

    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

    Huddle Up: Owners should monitor Edelman's status during the season to see if he suffers any setbacks. He probably will be the main target in the passing game next season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.
