How to handle Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu injury in Week 15 fantasy football

Edelman should once against play through his questionable tag and dominate the Bengals; Sanu should also play, but should not be played in fantasy

Once again, Julian Edelman was limited in practice all week. Once again, Edelman is listed as questionable on the Patriots’ final injury report.

Once again, expect Edelman to soak up huge targets and turn them into a big fantasy day against the Bengals on Sunday.

Edelman has been dealing with knee and shoulder issues for what seems like every week this season. He has had a recurring starring role on the Patriots’ injury report. But none of his ailments have kept Edelman off the field. Indeed, Edelman has been one of the top fantasy producers in 2019, garnering double-digit targets in eight straight games and topping 24 DK points each over the past two.

Fantasy football analysis: Patriots WR Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu

This week, Edelman gets one of his best draws of the season against a Bengals team with just one win that is allowing 400 yards of offense on a weekly basis.

Edelman has either caught or thrown a touchdown pass in three of his past four games.

Mohamed Sanu is also listed as questionable with an ankle injury and should play Sunday, but he had been largely a non-factor, catching his only target last week for 14 yards. He is not someone to rely on in any fantasy format in Week 15
