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.

Latest News

Patriots | Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola progress (Fri Jul 29, 11:39 AM) - New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) an WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) ran hills Friday, July 29, and appear close to returning to practice.

Our View: Edelman was a PPR WR1 last year before going down, but he is falling to WR2 range in the late third in early drafts this year. If he can get back on the field early in camp, it will be a good sign. The Patriots trading for Martellus Bennett could make this primarily a two tight end attack, so Edelman might not be as central to the red zone pass offense as he was last year.

Patriots | Julian Edelman should be good to go (Tue Jul 26, 02:08 PM) - New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) is expected to be removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list in the near future.

Patriots | Three notable Pats put on PUP list (Mon Jul 25, 07:13 PM) - New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and Julian Edelman (foot) and RB Dion Lewis (knee) were all placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 25.

Our View: The PUP list to start camp is not a big deal. Any of these guys (on this team or any other team) can just activate players when they're ready.

Patriots | Julian Edelman feeling better (Sun Jul 17, 05:11 PM) - New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) said his injured foot is feeling better but is not sure when he will be cleared to practice.

Our View: Edelman has had two procedures on his foot since the last time we saw him on the field in Week 10 against the Giants. It's the Patriots, so Lord only knows when we'll actually know anything about this injury or Edleman's recovery or Edelman's availability. Keep an eye on his status as training camp goes on.
