Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs HOU (6 / 4 / 38 / 0 rec, 3 / 14 / 0 rush)

Amidst speculation the Patriots could run some Wildcat packages with Edelman, they did nothing of the sort. Instead, Edelman was involved, but didn't get big production, as his number was called on a few sweeps and short passes. He didn't have any huge gains, though he did drop a diving touchdown grab in the end zone. Unless the Patriots go down big next week, he may again have a smaller ceiling with Brissett at the controls.

2016 Week 2 vs MIA (10 / 7 / 76 / 0 rec)

Edelman was involved early, catching his usual complement of short and some intermediate passes. He was showing good rapport with Jimmy Garoppolo prior to Jimmy G's injury, but with Jacoby Brissett likely playing, his production is a question mark in the short term.

2016 Week 1 vs ARI (7 / 7 / 66 / 0 rec, 3 / 16 / 0 rush)

Edelman had a hot start to the game, as he caught 5 passes in the first half and several on the first couple drives. Nothing he did was different from last season, as he caught passes and generally ran into defenders with reckless abandon. He didn't have any huge plays or huge errors, but did play the most snaps of any Patriots wide receiver.

Patriots | Julian Edelman prepping as backup QB (Wed Sep 21, 09:38 AM) - New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman has done extensive work the last few days to prepare to be the backup quarterback.

Our View: Edelman was a college QB, so this makes a lot of sense. The Texans will be prepared for this as their head coach Bill O'Brien used to be an assistant (and offensive cooridnator) on the Patriots offense.

Patriots | Julian Edelman has solid outing (Sun Sep 18, 05:05 PM) - New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman caught seven passes for 76 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.

Our View: Edelman did almost all of his damage in the first half. He will be tough to trust against the Texans with Jacoby Brissett in Thursday night, but consider him a borderline WR1 again once Tom Brady is back.
