1. Julian Edelman
Edelman is the perfect slot receiver. He knows how to gain separation and is a great route runner.
Even though he missed 4 games last season he was still the Patriots top receiver. In 12 games he racked up 74 catches for 850 yards and 6 touchdowns.
As soon as Edelman returned to the field it was like the offense flipped a switch. All of a sudden everything started to come together.
Now Edelman will have to continue to churn out these great numbers. At 32 I don’t know if he will be able to do so.
So expect Julian Edelman to get plenty of targets in 2019. They will definitely need him to continue to be the great slot receiver that he has always been.
