Wide Receiver Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP1/29/2015 11:20:00 AM
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman isn't on the injured list this week, although he did miss some time in the last AFC Championship Game due to a hip injury.
Insight: Edelman,Tom Brady's top receiver target, caught nine passes for 98 yards in the win over the Colts. He had 92 receptions this season for 972 yards a nd four scores in 14 games.
Justin Blackmon, WR, JAC1/25/2015 6:16:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Justin Blackmon will return to the Jaguars in 2015 according to FOX Sports' Alex Marvez.
Insight: Just as Josh Gordon fails another drug test, it is announced that Blackmon will likely return. General manager Dave Caldwell said in December he heard good things about Blackmon's substance abuse recovery, but there is still no specific date for reinstatement. If he does return, Blackmon will be a big boost for quarterback Blake Bortles.
Josh Gordon, WR, CLE1/25/2015 5:04:00 PM
Description: Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon failed a test for alcohol and will be facing a year-long suspension according to Profootballtalk's Mike Florio.
Insight: To the common fan, alcohol doesn't seem like as big of a deal as marijuana, but Gordon was prohibited from alcohol consumption as part of his DUI treatment plan from July. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the NFL substance abuse policy is "extremely strict" and clear, so Gordon will wait until 2016 to be back on the field. He will be 25 by then. Gordon led the league in receiving at 22.
T.Y. Hilton, WR, IND1/18/2015 10:10:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton led the team in receiving on Sunday, but it was not much of an accomplishment.
Insight: He had one catch for 36 yards. All of the Colts' pass-catchers were bottled up by New England's secondary, as nobody had a good fantasy day.
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP1/18/2015 10:04:00 PM
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman recorded a team-high nine receptions for 98 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He also had 11 targets, and came up big for New England on a bunch of third downs. Edelman is Tom Brady's top receiver.
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP1/18/2015 8:05:00 PM
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman returned to action.
Insight: He briefly left in the second quarter, but the hip injury apparently is not serious.
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP1/18/2015 7:52:00 PM
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman left Sunday's game with a hip injury.
Insight: He was able to jog off on his own, but had to go to the locker room. He is questionable to return. Edelman had four catches for 27 yards before departing.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, SEA1/18/2015 6:44:00 PM
Description: Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse made his only reception count on Sunday afternoon.
Insight: The catch was the game-winning 35-yard touchdown in overtime. Kearse is not a great fantasy option, but the play was impressive nevertheless.
Doug Baldwin, WR, SEA1/18/2015 6:43:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin came up big on Sunday.
Insight: He was Russell Wilson's top target, with nine of them. Baldwin caught six passes for 106 yards, including a 35-yarder in overtime, to set up the game-winning score.
Randall Cobb, WR, GBP1/18/2015 6:38:00 PM
Description: Packers wideout Randall Cobb caught a team-high seven passes during Sunday's loss.
Insight: He had 62 receiving yards and a score on 10 targets. Cobb will be a free agent, and will likely cash in whether it is with Green Bay or another team.
Jordy Nelson, WR, GBP1/18/2015 6:37:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson totaled a team-high 71 receiving yards on Sunday.
Insight: Nelson had five receptions on eight targets, and was shadowed by Richard Sherman all day. He will be a top-five wideout in 2015.
Griff Whalen, WR, IND1/15/2015 1:52:00 PM
Description: The Colts have added Griff Whalen to the roster for Sunday's game in New England.
Insight: He'll take the spot of Josh McNary who was placed on the exempt/commissioner permission list. He's likely to see special team work only and has no fantasy value.
