Julian Edelman underwent a second surgery on his previously broken foot in May. He is expected to be healthy and active in Week 1.

Summary

Edelman was Tom Brady's top target in 2015, despite missing seven games with a broken foot. That's both a blessing for Edelman, who is clearly one of Brady's favorite weapons, and a warning about how spread out virtually all the other targets are among Patriot receivers. As for Edelman, the team believes he will be ready for training camp and therefore, the start of the season. Considering the success he had missing a significant portion of the season in 2015, and given that he continues to be a huge part of Tom Brady's offense, we expect very good production from him this year, serving as a very solid second receiver for his owners.

Patriots | Julian Edelman expected to sit (Thu Aug 18, 02:01 PM) - New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 18, so he can rest his injured foot.

Our View: They'll be careful with him, as they have a much bigger need for him in-season than in preseason. We're a little concerned with the opening four games of the season, as he has missed time with Jimmy Garoppolo but he should be productive anyway in that time and absolutely so when Tom Brady is back. Overall, he should be a solid WR3 for fantasy GMs this season.

Patriots | Julian Edelman looks sharp (Wed Aug 17, 12:59 AM) - New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) looked quick in his first full 11-on-11 day Tuesday, Aug. 16. He sported an impressive double move to win a one-on-one drill.

Our View: Edelman was a WR1 last year before he went down, but he might take a small step back this year with the addition of Martellus Bennett, especially in the red zone. He's still an excellent WR2, but one that comes with increased injury risk based on his track record.
