Edelman has been a contributor on the Patriots offense throughout his five-year career. But with Wes Welker leaving for Denver and the Pats receiving corps ravaged by injuries, the former college quarterback became Tom Brady’s No. 1 target in 2013. Edelman has shattered his career highs in every receiving category, catching 96 passes (fourth in the NFL) for 991 yards and six touchdowns through New England’s first 15 games. He’s a near lock to surpass the 1,000-yard plateau for the first time in Week 17 against Buffalo.
