    Edleman?

    After a good season for Julian, does this year repeat similar production? With Gronk possible on the comeback and a healthy WR corp, it makes me wonder if he is going earlier than he should. As my keeper league drafts are approaching, doing a thorough research is a must.

    • The Pats are very hard to handicap because of their injury histories. A healthy Gronk and Vereen would severely cap Edelman's upside. But does that happen? Neither have an inspiring health record. Like Ben, I'm inclined to agree with his current ranking, but he has both down and upside risk from there. I am likely staying away as, if you wish to do so, there are much cheaper ways to take a flier on this receiving corps (Amendola or one of the field stretchers much later) and the quality available around Edelman's ADP is too enticing to ignore.

    • I think where he is being drafted is about right. a 3rd wr with help. in one league I took mike Wallace in another I took Edelman. I think they are pretty equal.

    • stay away from julian last year was his contract year and he was the only receiver that played with tom (dobson, thompkins, amendola) were all first year players with tom
      this year look for KT and amendola to play larger roles and gronk already said he is playing week 1 and all 16 games
      also incase your not a pats fan like me you should be weary of this rookie named TYMS that has been killing it in preason and probably going to take boyce's roster spot away from him
      add brandon lafell to the mix and that hurts him even more
      brady spreads the ball around and julian won't touch 100 catches this year
