Braylon Edwards hopes to revive his career after making the Seahawks 53-man roster. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Seattle Seahawks, addressing questions about their depth at wide receiver, gave a handful of veterans an extended look in training camp, including names like Braylon Edwards, Antonio Bryant and even Terrell Owens. Of those three, Edwards is the one that made the final roster after an impressive preseason in limited action. He had only three catches for 83 yards, but showed some of the same playmaking ability that once made him a top fantasy player. He's expected to start the season fighting for snaps with Golden Tate at split end.

Fantasy Impact: Edwards hasn't been a true WR1 option since 2007, but there's some sleeper potential here. The Seahawks still have depth concerns with the injury-prone Sidney Rice and the unfulfilled potential of Tate, so Edwards should see plenty of snaps. Keep an eye on him in your league's waiver wire.
