Julian Edelman WR NE 7 Days

Edelman caught 4-of-9 targets for 44 yards in Thursday's 27-25 win over the Jets, adding eight yards on a lone carry.

After bouncing back from a two-game slump with a nine-reception, 101-yard outing last week, Edelman struggled in Thursday's game against the Jets, notably dropping a pair of passes. He's been surprisingly inconsistent for both owners and the Patriots this season, but it's hard to be too down on his stock when he still has such a key role in a strong passing game. His nine targets were second on the team, nestled between Rob Gronkowski's 10 and Shane Vereen's eight. Even with the recent struggles, Edelman still has at least four receptions and seven targets in each of New England's seven games this season.

Edelman caught nine passes on 12 targets for 91 yards in Sunday's 37-22 win over the Bills.

While his yardage results will vary, Edelman continues to see a steady dose of targets from QB Tom Brady and thus retains fantasy utility, notably in PPR formats.

Edelman had 5-of-8 targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 43-17 win over the Bengals.

Edelman turned in a second straight dud for owners, after posting a 4-23-0 receiving line on nine targets last week. While he's still going to have a huge role in the offense, Edelman may have some added competition for targets as Rob Gronkowski (knee) continues to increase his snap count. TE Tim Wright also made his case to stick around in the passing game, catching 5-of-5 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game. Of course, Edelman is still unchallenged as Tom Brady's favorite wide receiver on the team.

Edelman caught 4-of-8 targets for 23 yards in Monday's 41-13 loss to the Chiefs.

Edelman turned in a rare dud after recording six or more catches and 64 or more receiving yards in each of his previous nine contests. While the New England passing game has struggled this season, Edelman had been the one player immune to the problems before Monday. Brandon LaFell led the Patriots in targets (10) and receptions (six) in a 119-yard performance that he probably won't match the rest of the season. Edelman still seems to be the team's only wide receiver capable of consistently drawing Tom Brady's attention. Next week brings a touch matchup with a Cincinnati team that has excellent depth at cornerback.
