Edelman is facing a suspension for the first four games of the 2018 season for violating the league performance-enhancing drug policy

Summary

Edelman is coming off a massive knee injury which robbed him of the 2017 NFL season. At 32 there is some concern about him rebounding from an ACL tear, and the Patriots will take it easy on him this summer. Prior to 2017, Edelman led the team in targets for four years and while we may not see him much this summer, we expect him to be one of the most targeted players here again this season and next to Rob Gronkowski, there is nobody who is more relied upon in big moments than Edelman. Expect WR3 numbers from him in his 2018 return to action. (June 1)
