Julian Edelman (WR, NE) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Matt Hartman - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately (8+ teams PPR & Standard)

ANALYSIS: Last year, New England frustrated fantasy owners by starting Julian Edelman over Wes Welker for the first few weeks of the season. Unfortunately for Edelman, a hand injury brought the opportunity for Welker to return back to the starting lineup. Now in 2013, Edelman again shows why the Patriots value his services, with seven catches for 79 yds. and two TDs. To boot, Edelman played 83 of 94 offensive snaps. If he can stay healthy, which has been an issue in his career, he will have tremendous fantasy value this year. Edelman is primed for a repeat in Week 2 with Gronkowski, Sudfeld and Amendola all nursing injuries
