|Belichick glad to have Julian Edelman back |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(3/25/14) Patriots coach Bill Belichick said at the NFL owners meetings Tuesday that he's happy to have receiver Julian Edelman back in New England this season.
"I'm glad we were able to work things out with Julian," Belichick said. "It's been an on-going process, glad it was resolved, good player who is versatile, does a lot of different things for us, works hard. He's tough, and he's developed all the way through our system. He came in not as a receiver, not as a punt returner, he’s developed into being pretty good at both those things, so glad to be able to keep him."
|Brady big reason why Julian Edelman stayed with Patriots |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(3/20/14) Patriots receiver Julian Edelman said one of the reasons he decided to stay in New England was quarterback Tom Brady, reports ESPN.
"It would be very tough to leave him because he is my dawg," Edelman said Thursday on a conference call. Edelman signed a four-year contract from the Patriots with a maximum value of $19 million, of which $8 million is guaranteed.
"It’s good to have a little security and knowing that a team believes in you enough to pay you that kind of stuff, and a little security on how many years I’ll be here," Edelman said. "I've really never been in that situation. I've always felt like if I had a bad practice, I could potentially get cut the next day. It's good to be back with this franchise. It's a surreal moment."

(3/15/14) Free-agent wide receiver Julian Edelman may be staying with the Patriots after all, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora on Friday. Edelman, who turned down a three-year deal earlier this week, is working on a new contract with the Patriots.

2014 Draft Prep: Quarterback tiers and strategies
Quarterbacks are as deep as they've ever been for Fantasy owners, but Dave Richard has his reasons for considering them early on as we unveil this year's tiers and strategies.
|Julian Edelman, not Danny Amendola, turned out to be the replacement for Wes Welker in 2013, and Edelman was rewarded with a four-year contract extension this offseason worth $17 million. Edelman set career highs in 2013 with 105 catches, 1,056 yards and six touchdowns. He had six games with double digits in Fantasy points and seven games with at least 11 targets. He became Tom Brady's go-to receiver, especially when Rob Gronkowski (ACL) went down, and we expect Edelman to continue to play at a high level this year. Gronkowski should be healthy, but if he has a setback that will only enhance Edelman's value as the slot receiver for Brady, which is the role Welker dominated in for years. Edelman should be considered a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in standard leagues, with his value slightly higher in PPR formats. He is worth drafting in Round 4 or 5 in standard leagues and no later than Round 4 in PPR formats.
