Summary

Julian Edelman saw more targets than any other player on the New England Patriots last season, and turned more of them into catches than any other player as well. Edelman is one of Tom Brady's favorite targets and he rarely misses a ball, catching 68% of his targets last season. His yards don't necessarily reflect what you'd expect from 92 catches, but that's because many of Edelman's receptions come on shorter routes. As that is the case (he missed cracking 1,000 yards by 30 yards last season), it limits his overall appeal, though the massive amount of catches helps him in PPR leagues. Edelman is solid receiver who can put up fair numbers, which makes him attractive in the later rounds of the top half of a fantasy draft. (May 17)
