FANTASY FOOTBALL THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
THE RETURN OF EDELMAN (WEEK 5)
BEAST DOME NATION.
If there is one thing that is for sure with all the Preseason BEAST Clients this season, that one thing is they all have Julian Edelman. 95% of the teams have Gronk, but everyone has Julian Edelman.
It was a silver lining in the suspension for the first 4 games that allowed Edelman to fall to the 5th/6th, sometimes 7th Round of all Fantasy Football Drafts. In reality, Edelman is a 3rd Round Pick and should have been selected among the Amari Cooper/Doug Baldwin/Stefon Diggs range.
With Edelman back, so is the Patriots offense. Tonight they take on a Colts team that is struggling with injuries, in New England. With that being said, good luck Andrew Luck.
How can Luck beat the Patriots?
It will take more than Luck, it will take actual real life Luck for the Patriots to lose in this game. The Colts WRs have no chance against the veteran Patriots Secondary. No TY Hilton so players like Ryan Grant and Chester Rogers are really going to have to stand out and make big plays down field. Little check downs to Ebron and Nyheim the Inception Dream will help, but those will not be open at all if the WRs cannot make plays down the field.
The only advantage the Colts have over the Patriots Defense is surprisngly their offensive line. The Patriots pass rush is barely there, so if Luck has time to make some throws down the field, the Colts can move the chains and keep that tock ticking. The only way the Colts can win this game is moving the chains, 10 yards at a time, and keep Brady off the field. If the Colts own Time of Possesion, Colts have a chance. Though the second they punt the ball to the Patriots..
Tom Brady will be finding open WRs all night long, the Running Game is going to be very strong led by Sony and White. Gronk will be open for the first time all season because Edelman will get a lot of attention in the middle of the field as well, and Brady could have a perfect QB Rating after this game.
