RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Once such an afterthought he saw most of his snaps as a reserve defensive back, Edelman has been quarterback Tom Brady's No. 1 target the last two years. While Rob Gronkowski will reprise his role as the team's touchdown catcher, Edelman's sure-handedness and reliable route running provide a high-floor in PPR formats ó he's racked up 197 catches over his last 30 games. Don't expect many big plays from the 5-10, 200-pounder. While Edelman has good quickness, his small stature and average (4.52 40) speed have limited him to a possession role (only 16 catches of 20-plus yards on 285 targets the last two years.) Edelman also poses some injury risk as he has a history of concussions, notably one suffered in December that cost him two games last year, and he seemed to play through another in the Super Bowl, though the injury was never confirmed.

2014

With Wes Welker gone and Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski often hurt, it was Edelman who did his best Welker impression and became Tom Bradyís most reliable target. The pedestrian per-play numbers (10.1 YPC, 7.0 YPT) are somewhat beside the point as Edelman was running short routes and lacked the speed (4.52 40) to turn them into big gains (only nine of his 105 receptions went for 20-yards plus). While the 5-10, 198-pound Edelman saw 21 red-zone looks (T. 6th), only six of those were from inside the 10. He signed a four-year deal to remain in New England with $8 million guaranteed so itís likely heíll be Tom Bradyís security blanket again. But heíll have to compete with a healthy-for-now Danny Amendola, and Aaron Dobson, Brandon LaFell and a few others could get into the mix. Moreover, a healthy Shane Vereen and Rob Gronkowski would command a big portion of Tom Bradyís targets.

2013

The Patriots have retooled their wideout corps in 2013, adding Danny Amendola, Michael Jenkins and rookies Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce. At minimum, Edelman provides the Pats with good insurance in the slot behind Danny Amendola, similar to Edelman's role when Wes Welker was in town. If he can stay, healthy this coming season, Edelman has the playmaking ability to make an impact in the team's transitioning offense.

2012

Edelman made his mark as a jack-of-all trades last season, returning punts and kickoffs and seeing part-time work as a defensive back. His role in the New England offense has been limited, however, by the good health of Wes Welker, who he essentially backs up. The team brought in reinforcements at wideout this past offseason, so Edelman must fight to retain his spot on the team, with his versatility his best defense for sticking.

2011

With Wes Welker staying healthy, Edelman was limited to seven catches for 86 yards overall during the regular season in 2010. When given touches, as he was as a rookie when he caught 37 passes for 359 yards in 11 games, Edelman can make plays, but heading into 2011, his fantasy value will clearly be dependent upon the health of those ahead of him on the Patriots' wideout depth chart. His best bet for fantasy relevance would be another Welker injury, as Edelman demonstrated in 2009 that he can do many of the things his veteran counterpart does, albeit in a less polished fashion.

2010

After Wes Welker tore his knee in Week 17, Edelman stepped in and performed like his clone with 10 catches for 103 yards and a touchdown. Edelman also had an eight-catch game in Week 2 when Welker was out. All told, in the three games of which Welker missed substantial parts, Edelman had 21 catches for 221 yards and two scores. At 6-0, 198, the former quarterback isnít quite as quick as Welker, but heís more stout, able to break tackles and run through defenders who donít square up on him. Edelman also showed an excellent rapport with quarterback Tom Brady and is likely to line up again as the teamís slot man this year ó at least until Welkerís able to return. The signing of Torry Holt complicates things as itís unclear to what extent the 34-year-old ex Pro Bowler will cut into Edelmanís targets. But the slot receiver gets a lot of work in New Englandís offense, and so long as Edelman has the role to himself, he should be a factor.

2009

The Patriots like Edelman's athletic ability (think Wild Cat formation potential) and if they can keep him away from other teams, he's an intriguing project who they can develop on the practice squad if he doesn't make the cut.
