The Patriots wide receiver group takes a hit.

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will be out for Week 8’s matchup against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Honestly at this point, it’s not worth rostering Edelman anymore. The Patriots offense is a mess and he clearly is banged up. “Some period of time” is never a good thing to hear so best just cut bait and free up the roster spot. This now leaves just Damiere Byrd, Jakobi Meyers, and Gunner Olszewski as the Patriots lone healthy receivers. I would expect a heavy dose of the ground game this week (though I did like what I saw from Meyers against the 49ers).
