Target Time: Week 15 - Wright A Star?

Dec 19, 2013 10:25 AM EST

3. 2. Julian Edelman (19 week, 129 season)


I am a gambling man myself, and am willing to throw a few pesos down on the fact that a huge number of PPR teams that are still alive in Week 16 have the name Julian Edelman gracing their rosters. Book it. Week 15 was another huge week for Tom Brady’s new best buddy, as Edelman caught 13 of 19 targets for 139 yards and a touchdown. Over New England’s last four games, Edelman has been targeted an average of 12.8 times per game, which is a big time number. With Rob Gronkowski out, Edelman will continue to be heavily leaned on to help move the Patriots offense. Expect nothing different in Week 15 as another 12 or more targets are very likely.
