New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) has 'progressed in a positive direction,' according to head coach Bill Belichick, who added that Edelman has not suffered any setbacks. Edelman is now eligible to return to practice and open the 21-day window to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list, though Belichick did not indicate how soon they'd take that step.
Huddle Up: Considering there was a lot of talk that Edelman would miss the rest of 2020 when he went on IR this has to be considered a positive sign. If someone jettisoned him and you can stash him on your bench or IR slot it may be worth the flier.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 30, and has been ruled out for Week 8.
Huddle Up: Edelman is expected to miss multiple weeks after undergoing knee surgery. Damiere Byrd and Jakobi Meyers will be the main options in the passing game but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) is likely headed to the Reserve/Injured list after having surgery to clean up his knee.
Huddle Up: Ian Rapoport also went as far to say that Edelman's knee was a bone-on-bone situation, which spells doom for a football player. You can stash Edelman on an IR spot for now in hopes of getting something from him in the stretch run, but this was a grim report for a gritty player.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) has undergone 'recent' surgery on his knee, according to a source. He is out of practice Thursday, Oct. 29, and is expected to miss Sunday's Week 8 game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Another blow to Edelman's fantasy owners and Cam Newton and the Patriots' struggling offense, which now will need more from WRs N'Keal Harry, Damiere Byrd and Jakobi Meyers. Use an IR spot to keep Edelman around if needed but certainly move on if you haven't already.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) is not practicing Thursday, Oct. 29, with a knee injury that is expected to keep him out 'of some game action,' according to a source. The injury could require surgery, but it likely wouldn't be a season-ending procedure, the source added.
Huddle Up: In four games since his career outing in Week 2 (179 yards on eight receptions), Edelman has only caught 8-of-21 targets for 79 yards and remains without a TD grab this season. Perhaps the knee issue has affected Edelman more than he's let on, but he's certainly been droppable in any case. Those in deeper leagues might soon be able to use an IR slot to keep him around if needed.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: Edelman has been dealing with the injury for the entire season but still has not missed any time. He has been held to under 40 yards in each of the last four games and may only be a possible flex option in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman posted just one catch for 13 yards on three targets in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Edelman has just not jelled with Cam Newton at all, going for eight catches for 79 yards on 21 targets across the past four outings. He has been more of a WR5 in PPR leagues.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) is officially active for the Week 7 game.
Huddle Up: Edelman has been dealing with the injury for most of the season but has not missed any games. He should be one of the main options in the passing game and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
