New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is officially listed as out for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is officially listed as out for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Edelman has a hand injury and missed practice all week. He will not play against the Bills. The injury to Edelman likely means more snaps for Wes Welker. Bill Belichick has been giving Edelman more playing time than Welker in recent weeks, but Welker will regain prominence in the offense now.

Fantasy Impact: Julian Edelman wasn't a huge fantasy producer, but this injury provides a big boost to Wes Welker's fantasy value. Make sure you don't leave Edelman in your fantasy lineups this week. The Patriots offense should function normally even without Edelman. The Bills provide a nice matchup for them as well.
