InjuryWill miss entire 2017 season

New England’s worst fears have been realized. Julian Edelman is done for the season.

An MRI on Saturday revealed that Edelman indeed suffered an ACL tear in his right knee during Friday’s preseason win over the Lions, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. The Patriots’ Super Bowl hero will miss the entire 2017 campaign. (NFL.com)

Nerdy Football Analysis: As we expected, Edelman will the season. It’s a big blow to the Patriots and for fantasy owners who’ve already drafted the Patriots slot receiver. In his absence, expect Danny Amendola and Chris Hogan to see an increased workload. Hogan is likely the biggest beneficiary and should reps both in the slot and outside.
