Julian Edelman, WR, Patriots

2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Nov-11-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (Nov. 11): Edelman is now a rock-solid WR1 across all formats. Although he lacks the huge-week potential of someone like Antonio Brown or Julio Jones, the productivity of this offense has been reliable enough for Edelman to establish himself as a weekly mid- to low-caliber WR1.
Edelman will never match the career of Wes Welker, but he's done an excellent job impersonating him over the past two years. Since the start of 2013, Julian has 197 catches on 285 targets, 2,028 yards and 10 TDs in 30 games. Edelman was Brady's top option in the 2014 playoffs as he caught eight or more passes in each game for 281 receiving yards and the eventual Super Bowl-winning touchdown. A concussion led to him missing the last two games of the regular season and some people believe be suffered another concussion against the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl. Over his last nine games in 2014, Julian had 73 catches, 786 yards and four TDs on 102 targets. The growth of Brandon LaFell and the presence of Rob Gronkowski helped Edelman find more open spaces to make plays late in the season. Julian was a top-15 WR in PPR leagues in each of the past two years. If he stays healthy for 16 games and scores a few more touchdowns, he could finish in the top 10.
