Fantasy owners of New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will be very happy to know that he's taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers, a team he's done very well against in each of their last three meetings.
Edelman only has one touchdown over this span but does have 28 catches for 275 receiving yards. In PPR formats, this is the type of production we've been looking for out of him for quite some time now. After a four-game ban to start the season, Edelman ranks second on the Patriots in both receptions (56) and targets (81).
Julian Edelman's last 3 lines against the #Steelers:— Jared Smola (@SmolaDS) December 14, 2018
This year's Steelers have allowed the 3rd most PPR points to slot receivers.
Things get even better for Edelman, as the Steelers are allowing the 3rd-most PPR points to slot receivers.
Julian Edelman ($7,200) has seen at least 10 targets in 4 of his last 6 games. Is Edelman a good play in both cash and tournament games? @MariaCMarino and @JimSannes discuss on FanDuel Hurry Up. pic.twitter.com/EUUJ29yafK— FanDuel (@FanDuel) December 14, 2018
It has been tough to decipher which weapon from the Patriots' arsenal will be the most productive of the bunch. Given what we know about his history and the Steelers' vulnerability in the slot, perhaps Edelman does it once again.
