Fantasy Football Profile: Braylon Edwards
Braylon Edwards had a terrible case of the dropsies last year. After dominating the league in 2007 with 80 catches for 1289 yards and 16 TDs, he had just 55 catches for 873 yards and 3 TDs. Talk about a disappearing act. 2009 isn’t exactly getting off to a great start either. He has dealt with some minor injuries in training camp. If the Browns are going to claw their way up to mediocrity, they are going to need Edwards to stay healthy and focused. Edwards will have to be a bigger factor in their passing game as he had more than four receptions four times, and more than five receptions just once.
Kellen Winslow, Jr. is gone, and the Browns running game is far from formidable. You don’t know if Brady Quinn or Derek Anderson will be the QB, or if it even matters. I would take Braylon Edwards as a WR 3, but there are many of wideouts that I would prefer on my team. Braylon is going in the 6th-8th round in fantasy leagues as around the 20th WR. I’m predicting 65 catches for 950 yards and 6 TDs.
