RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
