Horrible news out of the Patriots Pre-Season, star WR Julian Edelman has reportedly torn his ACL. Below is the tweet from Adam Schefter…
Patriots suspect Julian Edelman tore his ACL, but do not definitely know, per source. MRI on Sunday to determine full extent of injury.

This is horrible news for the Patriots, of course. With Edelman out for the season look for Gronkowski to see a bump in targets, as well as the rest of the team.
If you own Edelman in fantasy leagues, it is recommended not to drop him until this is confirmed by the Patriots. But, a smart owner would go look into potentially picking up Chris Hogan who could see more work.
