|Edelman posted 74 catches for 850 yards and six touchdowns on 108 targets in just 12 games last season after missing the first month of action while serving a suspension. His 11.0 fantasy points per game where the second-most of his career, and he was on pace to set a career-high in receiving touchdowns.
With the retirement of Gronk and the unknown surrounding Josh Gordon's availability this year, Julian Edelman is the unquestioned No.1 WR for Tom Brady and the favorite target in the passing game after James White.
The fact that Edelman has yet to post more than seven touchdowns in a season of his career has always negated his value in non-PPR formats. However, his likely increase in volume with the absence of Gronk could make him of the best values of the fourth or fifth round.

Patriots ailing at WR position
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 23, 9:07 am
|Some context on injury front: WR Phillip Dorsett (concussion) has not been given clearance by doctors to resume full football activity. Thus, Patriots preparing for the increasing likelihood he won’t be available vs. Cowboys. WR spot a concern w/ Mohamed Sanu (ankle) also ailing. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: With Mohamed Sanu rumored to need a couple weeks to recover from his ankle injury the Pats could be starting Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers at wide receiver against the Cowboys on Sunday. If so, Edeleman would be the only trustworthy fantasy option along with James White at running back.
| Julian Edelman makes the trip to Buffalo|

|The seven Patriots who are questionable - WR Julian Edelman (chest/ribs), RB Rex Burkhead (foot), TE Matt LaCosse (ankle), LB Dont’a Hightower (shoulder), LT Marshall Newhouse (illness), S Nate Ebner (groin) and DE Michael Bennett (shoulder) - all made the trip to Buffalo. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Other reports suggest that Edelman will play against the Bills tomorrow but we won't know for sure until the inactives come out 90 minutes before gametime. He'll be on the WR2 / low-end WR1 radar if he suits up.
