2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a solid rookie season in 2009 when he caught 37 passes for 359 yards and a touchdown, Edelman seemed a decent bet to eventually assume Wes Welkerís role in the teamís offense. However, after two seasons in which he totaled 11 receptions for 120 yards, the odds of that happening now seem remote. He would have some fantasy value, especially in PPR leagues, if Welker were to go down with an injury. Entering the season, Edelmanís only real fantasy value is if you own Welker in a deep league and want to handcuff him. Dynasty owners in deep leagues could also grab him in the hopes that Welker isnít in New England in 2013.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rob Gronkowski out Week 1     -- Fri Sep 9 8:00 pm --

Didn't make the trip to Arizona
The Patriots announced Friday that tight end Rob Gronkowski will not play Sunday night, along with offensive linemen Jonathan Cooper and Nate Solder. Gronk was limited in practice all week after injuring his hamstring a fortnight ago. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: Gronk's pre-season hamstring injury is going to cost him at least Week 1. His absence means TE Martellus Bennett should see a slight increase in usage along with WR Julian Edelman. Jimmy Garoppolo will have his hands full with the Arizona defense on the road and without his best receiving threat.
Injury Gronk's Week 1 status in some doubt     -- Thu Sep 8 8:30 pm --

Decision reportedly to come down to coaches and medical staff
Rob Gronkowski's injured hamstring is serious enough that he wouldn't guarantee that he will play in Sunday night's season-opening game against the Arizona Cardinals. "Yeah, it boils to a coaching decision, the medical team, and myself. We'll all get together and collaborate and see where I'm at," Gronkowski said Thursday. Gronkowski has been a limited participant in practice this week and when asked if he was 100 percent, he answered, "No, I'm not. Since that one time during practices versus the Bears [Aug. 15], I've just been week-to-week with a little hammy thing. So it's just been week-to-week, day-by-day, but I'm feeling good." (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Considering this is the Patriots, it wouldn't be a surprise if Gronk lights up the Cardinals on Sunday night. To that end, two sources have already suggested he'll play "barring an unexpected setback". With that said, owners need to prepare themselves for the possibility he won't suit up. Martellus Bennett would go from low-end TE1 to a midrange one in such a case, while James White and Julian Edelman could be in line for more work in the passing game.
Injury Julian Edelman leaves practice (lower leg)     -- Tue Aug 9 11:04 am --

Pats WR appeared frustrated; more reports to follow
Pats Insider Tom E. Curran (@tomecurran) on Twitter: "Julian Edelman has gone off to the side with disgust, threw helmet. Trainer Jim Whalen looking at lower left leg as Edelman sits on cart." (Twitter)

FF Today's Take: The injury was sustained during a joint practice with the Saints on Tuesday. This is not good news for the Patriots, who are already without QB Tom Brady for the first four games of the season. Stay tuned.
Injury Julian Edelman returns to practice     -- Sun Aug 7 3:00 pm --

Off the PUP list
The Patriots offense received a big boost this afternoon with the return of wide receiver Julian Edelman to practice. Edelman was in pads and wasn't even wearing a non-contact jersey. Edelman, who has been recovering from foot surgeries, began training camp on the active/PUP list. He has been working out at camp, signalling that he was close to a return. Today, the Patriots finally removed him from the PUP and gave him the green light. (Boston Herald)

FF Today's Take: Foot injuries are difficult for athletes so while it's nice to Edelman back at camp and presumably he will be ready for Week 1, his injury history should be noted by fantasy owners. He's missed 9 games over the last two seasons.
