Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 10 vs TEN (12 / 9 / 104 / 0 rec)
Though his stat line was big, Edelman's totals are a bit misleading, as he was funneled targets due to a big Pats deficit early in the game and continuing throughout the game. As a result, most of his catches weren't necessarily manufactured, but many of them came with the game out of hand. Edelman also left in the 4th with an ankle injury, something worth watching. He does have the bye week to get right, however.
2018 Week 9 vs GB (10 / 6 / 71 / 0 rec, 2 / 28 / 0 rush)
Two reverses. A passing completion. A reception off a flea flicker. Oh, and his usual complement of tough catches. All in a day's work for Julian Edelman, who was utilized in a variety of different ways. His passing play was a cross-field completion to James White on a screen play, while Edelman was left open on his flea flicker reception. Edelman did see 10 targets, which may have been slightly inflated due to Gronk being an inactive, giving Edelman the middle of the field to himself for several plays. As Gronk's health is a concern, Edelman will continue to play his normal important role.
2018 Week 8 vs BUF (10 / 9 / 104 / 0 rec, 2 / 13 / 0 rush)
Along with James White, Edelman dominated the short and middle of the field, routinely catching passes and moving the chains. He converted a 3rd down run thanks to a Tom Brady "block" as well. Edelman certainly has a chance for more big games even though the Pats do have plenty of weapons.
2018 Week 7 vs CHI (8 / 5 / 36 / 1 rec)
Though he had 8 targets and Gronk was out, Edelman's only significant play was his touchdown. The play was a designed screen with Edelman bull rushed into the end zone, running over defenders in the process. Other than that, all of Edelman's catches were extremely short, and he could not get much going after the catch. Credit the Bears for shutting him down fairly well.
2018 Week 6 vs KC (7 / 4 / 54 / 1 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
With Tom Brady spreading the ball around, Edelman didn't have a monster day, but he shouldn't be expected to now. His touchdown was a nicely lofted ball by Tom Brady in which Edelman simply ran past his defender for an easy score with nice separation. He also converted a critical third down in the 4th quarter, but beyond that, actually played less snaps than Josh Gordon.
2018 Week 5 vs IND (9 / 7 / 57 / 0 rec)
Back but with some rust to show for it, Edelman was integrated right away into the game plan, catching 3 passes on the first drive of the game. The rust showed on a huge drop on a third down that could have easily gone for 20+ yards, along with a couple other routes that weren't quite 100%. As he gets more and more comfortable out there, he and James White will form a great security blanket duo for Brady.
