Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
Injuries are starting to take their toll as Edelman has had 2 foot surgeries the most recent in May 2016. Currently on the PUP list he may not be available for week 1. He missed 2 games in 2014 and 7 games in 2015 due to injury. Even if he is available for week 1 he has a tough matchup against Arizona and may not be fully recovered from his foot injury.
Rushing: 2 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 6 Receptions, 63 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
At 30 years old and with two foot surgeries since Week 10 of last season, the quarterback-turned-wide receiver has us a little worried entering the 2016 season. The Patriots also seem a bit concerned as they've added TE Martellus Bennett from Chicago and WR Chris Hogan from Buffalo to assist QB Tom Brady in the short passing game. After having surgery during the season to insert a pin into his broken foot, Edelman needed another surgery in February. So while the early word is that Edelman will be ready in advance of Week 1, he's way too valuable to the Patriots offense to overuse during the regular season. That's why Bennett and Hogan were brought in to provide multiple options. If things go the way the Patriots and Bill Belichick would like, Edelman will not need to catch 100 passes for the Pats to be effective.
