Julian Edelman has been playing through knee and shoulder injuries, and is once again "questionable,quot; in the Patriots' Saturday game against the Bills in Week 16. He played through ailments in Week 15 , although its performance probably did not increase many owners of fantasy football games. If you did it and you have Edelman, especially in the PPR leagues, his injury status for Week 16 will be very important in determining fantasy championships. The official active / inactive report falls around 3:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, and we will have the latest updates below.

Julian Edelman plays on Saturday in week 16?

Edelman has apparently been injured all year, but appeared more than usual in Week 15. Edelman is playing through a "tendon problem in his left leg." according to Mike Giardi of NFL Network. This week, Edelman has been included in the New England injury report with a knee and shoulder injury.

SATURDAY DFS: DraftKings main slate line | Alignments of clashes

In both Tuesday and Wednesday practices, Edelman was listed as a limited participant. He is likely to play on Saturday, as New England has a first-round goodbye to play, along with an outside shot in first place in the AFC.

(Update: Edelman was also limited in Thursday's practice, and is officially questionable before Saturday's game against the Bills.)

However, it is worrying that the leg problem seemed to delay Edelman a week ago. He caught two passes for nine yards on five goals while playing his lowest total in 11 weeks. 62 percent of the plays were on the field, less than Mohamed Sanu and N & # 39; Keal Harry.

On the bright side, Edelman's work out of the slot should keep him away from Buffalo's cornerback, Tre & # 39; Davioius White, who works almost exclusively abroad this season. And the reality is that if he owns Edelman, especially in PPR formats, it will probably depend on him in his fantasy championship. Your advantage may be limited if you need to be in a pitch count due to the injury.

Tom Brady probably shouldn't be a fantasy consideration against the Bills, and that's especially true with injured Edelman. Brady will be a QB2 low this week. If Edelman resisted completely, expect Mohamed Sanu to lead the Pats with double-digit targets, while rookies N & # 39; Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers would play more than half of the offensive snapshots and each will see about five goals .
