Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 5 vs IND (9 / 7 / 57 / 0 rec - 9.2 points, $6500)

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.

Patriots | Julian Edelman activated (Thu Oct 4, 05:47 PM) - New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman was activated from the Reserve/Suspended list Thursday, Oct. 4. The team also released RB Kenjon Barner.

Our View: Edelman should be good to go for PPR lineups tonight. Tom Brady seemed excited to have him back in his social media feed and the Colts corners don't feature anyone who will be able to consistently check him tonight.

Patriots | Julian Edelman may be eased back in (Tue Oct 2, 12:04 PM) - New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman is now eligible to play after serving a four-game PED suspension. However, Edelman's workout partner and former teammate Rob Ninkovich said the Patriots should take it easy in working Edelman back in after the slot receiver missed the 2017 season with an ACL tear. 'I just hope that he doesn't have too much,' Ninkovich said on this week's Ex-Pats Podcast. 'Everyone's like, 'Julian's back! Feed him the ball!' Yeah, Julian's back. Give him the football. But let's not over-run him into the ground and overdo it when he does have an ACL last year . . . Yeah, it's been a year, but it's still an ACL just like everyone else who has an ACL. It's not easy to come back and just take a guy flying at your knees, your legs, take these hits. When you're coming off an ACL, you didn't really play that much, you didn't really play last year because you had an ACL, and now they're going to give you 15 balls a game? And now you're going to take all those hits and run every route?'

Our View: They could ease him back in but Tom Brady is suggesting something different. Brady said he hopes there's a smooth transition for Edelman coming off his four-game suspension. The Patriots play on Thursday night against the Colts and upon his return we feel Edelman is a strong flex option -- with upside -- in Week 5.
