He's going to play and this is some of the Patriot shenanigans we've grown to know and hate in the football world. He could be in for a big game for a couple reasons: Danny Amendola is out of the lineup, so Edelman will see all the work he can handle in the slot when the Patriots go three wide -- pretty much every play. He also torched the Jets Week 2, with 13 catches on 18 targets.
Fantasy impact: If you're in a PPR league, Edelman should be looking pretty good for Sunday. The Jets don't have their secondary at 100 percent and they're going to have their eyes on Rob Gronkowski returning. Of course, Edelman isn't going to be handing in a line that includes 13 catches, but it's not a wild projection to think he can get it up to seven or eight catches. Owners in standard leagues shouldn't be as attracted to Edelman since he does run deep routes.
