Julian Edelman helps pile on the Vikings in Week 2


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Julian Edelman's first touchdown of the year came from 9 yards out and he snared 6 of 7 targets for 81 yards (all team highs) in the Patriots' dominant win at the Vikings in Week 2. Edelman also had 9 yards on a rush. 

Edelman will look to keep it rolling in Week 3 when the Raiders come to Foxboro. 


Julian Edelman silent after halftime in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman got off to a fast start in Week 1 against the Dolphins, a 33-20 loss Sunday.

Edelman was unstoppable in the first half, hauling in six of seven passes thrown his way for 95 yards, including a long reception of 44 yards. He also ran the ball twice for 21 yards before halftime, but wasn't heard from again from that point on. Edelman was targeted just once in the second half, a pass he was unable to haul in as the Patriots' offense fell apart in the loss.

Edelman finished in a tie for third on the team in targets, as the Dolphins focused more of their defensive pressure on him as the game went on. The Patriots will take on the Vikings in Week 2. 


Julian Edelman looking for history to repeat itself


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman has history on his side in Week 1 against the Dolphins, as he returns to the site of his best career performance this Sunday.

Edelman was an unstoppable part of the Patriots' passing attack in a Week 15 loss to the Dolphins last season, as he hauled in 13 of 19 passes thrown his way for 139 yards, a career-high total. He also found the end zone in the game, as he ended up with a massive 19 Fantasy points in the loss.

The Dolphins were actually solid against the pass last season, and Edelman managed just two catches for 7 yards in the lone game Rob Gronkowski appeared in against them a year ago. With Gronkowski healthy, Edelman is a bit less of a sure thing than he otherwise might be, but he still figures to see a hefty number of targets. 

Both of our experts have Edelman ranked among the top-24 wide receivers for Week 1, making him a solid starting option in both PPR and standard formats this Sunday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Edelman caught five passes in the first half, including one from backup quarterback Ryan Mallett in the first quarter. He caught passes for 8, 13 and 8 on the final drive of the night late in the third quarter. He caught all eight of his targets for 99 yards, averaging 12.4 yards per grab.

Tom Brady's favorite receiver is still Julian Edelman


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hit 11 of 14 passes in Monday's joint practice with the Redskins, and his favorite receiver was Julian Edelman, reports the Boston Globe. At one point Brady found Edelman on three straight throws.

Belichick glad to have Julian Edelman back


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) 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
(3/20/2014) 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."

Patriots, Julian Edelman talk new deal


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) The Patriots and representatives for free-agent-to-be receiver Julian Edelman talked about a new contract on Thursday, ESPN reported. Edelman is slated to be set loose on the market on March 11. 

It is believed that Edelman is looking for a deal similar to the one Danny Amendola signed last offseason (roughly $6 million per season). Edelman caught 105 passes for 1,056 yards and six touchdowns last year, all career highs.


Franchise tag deadline won't stir Patriots


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The tag costs $11.8 million for cornerbacks and $12.3 million for receivers, the two highest figures for non-quarterbacks, the report said.


Patriots have decisions to make at receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) The Patriots have to make some decisions at receiver this offseason, reports the Boston Herald

The first is deciding to pay free agent Julian Edelman. The report says Edelman might want a contract similar to what Danny Amendola got last season (five years and a max value of $31 million). But the Patriots will probably offer Edelman something similar to their offer to Wes Welker (two years, $10 million). Based on that, the report expects Edelman to chase the money elsewhere.

Amendola is safe this offseason despite a down year, but he could be released after the 2014 season if he struggles again. The team hopes the three second-year receivers of Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce continue to develop, and getting Rob Gronkowski (ACL) back at 100 percent is vital.

The Patriots also could look at receivers in free agency, especially if Edelman leaves, and they could be in play for Eric Decker, Jeremy Maclin or Hakeem Nicks. Or if Edelman returns, the Patriots could still add someone like Brandon LaFell, Nate Burleson, Riley Cooper or Kenny Britt.


Patriots to 'compete' for Julian Edelman?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) Julian Edelman is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason. He should do well for himself considering he's made $3 million total since arriving in New England five seasons ago. 

The Boston Herald thinks Edelman won't give the Patriots much of a break if any and will look for a deal close to what the team paid Danny Amendola last spring (five years, $31 million). Edelman might also shop himself around to other teams. 

Edelman caught 105 passes for 1,056 yards and six touchdowns last year, all career highs. 


Texans a fit for Julian Edelman?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) Impending free-agent receiver Julian Edelman could command as much money as Danny Amendola did last season, reports ESPN.com. While the Patriots could absorb another five-year, $28.5 million deal, they ultimately might decide not to, according to the report.

In that scenario, the Texans might land Edelman and give their new quarterback, whoever it is, another terrific weapon. "The idea of Edelman in the slot with Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins on the outside is particularly appealing," the report said.

Edelman led New England with 105 catches for 1,056 yards.


Julian Edelman open to leaving Patriots


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Patriots wide receiver and impending free agent Julian Edelman is leaving his options open, per MassLiveSports.

"We'll discuss what I want and come up with a plan," he said. "Playing for New England is a dream, but there's a short window in this sport."

Edelman was easily the team's best receiver in 2013. He led the Patriots with 105 catches, 1,056 yards and six touchdowns.


Tom Brady lobbying for Julian Edelman's return


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) Patriots receiver Julian Edelman is about to enter free agency. If quarterback Tom Brady has his way, New England would re-sign Edelman as soon as possible.

"He had an incredible season," Brady said on WEEI Radio, per ESPN.com. "No one could have ever predicted what he could accomplish for our team. I mean, he was one guy that was so consistent and dependable for us. I’m just proud of him because of his mental toughness and maturity and his work ethic. He spent a lot of time watching over the last four years. And to finally get an opportunity where he could be an every-down player, and the way he contributed to our team, especially in a game like yesterday where he made so many great plays for us, it was great to see.

"Free agency and stuff, that takes time to develop," Brady added. "And I know how difficult a task it is for our team to make decisions like this, and we’ve had to make a lot of tough decisions over the years. All those things sort themselves out. Coach Belichick is the one that makes all those tough decisions. I love [Edelman], he’s one of my best pals, I spent a lot of time with him. I’m just proud of him for everything that he’s accomplished. He deserves the best."


Julian Edelman finishes strong


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) Patriots receiver Julian Edelman drew a game-high 15 targets in the AFC Championship Game loss at Denver, catching 10 passes for 89 yards and a touchdown. Edelman was targeted at least nine times in his final eight games and scored five times in that span. He emerged as Tom Brady's clear go-to guy.

Sunday, Edelman hauled in a 7-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, his seventh score this season. Just 27, he'll be a hot free agent this offseason.
