Huddle Up: Amendola had more catches and more yards than he had during any game during the regular season. He could be a nice DFS sleeper next weekend in case the trend continues.
Posted: 12/24/2017 6:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola really fizzled down the stretch when fantasy needed him most. Over his past five games he managed just 176 receiving yards with no scores and 14 total catches.
Posted: 12/17/2017 8:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has managed just 11 grabs for 148 yards and no scores over his past four outings. That type of production makes him more of a WR4 in PPR leagues, and WR5 in standard play heading into Week 16.
Posted: 12/11/2017 10:25pm ET
Huddle Up: This was Amendola's best game in a few weeks, and it was almost even better had he not been one yard short of a touchdown late in the ballgame. This was also encouraging for the former Ram, as he still garnered a lot of looks despite Chris Hogan returning from injury. However, don't put too much stock into this one, as owners need to remember Rob Gronkowski was sidelined with a one-game suspension and will be back next week.
Posted: 12/8/2017 7:39pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola should see an uptick in snaps with Gronkowski sidelined, but he is far from a lock to replicate his Week 5 numbers. If you are going to gamble on him in Week 14, it should probably be in DFS formats.
Posted: 12/3/2017 2:02pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola didn't help anyone in fantasy on this one, especially those who used him in PPR formats. He should be treated more as a WR4 heading into Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night.
Posted: 11/30/2017 1:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola was hardly involved in the offense last week, but he does provide value with Chris Hogan looking unlikely to play. Brandin Cooks and Rob Gronkowski limit Amendola's targets, so start him as a WR3 or flex.
Posted: 11/29/2017 1:58pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has been limited in mid-week practices for a while now, but he has been able to fight through his nagging knee injury to play. While he laid an egg last week against Miami with just one catch, generally he is a solid WR3 or flex option in most PPR leagues when active. He has lesser appeal in standard formats.
Posted: 11/26/2017 5:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola was targeted four times, but he managed just one grab. That's simply not going to do. He is a stud for fantasy owners in PPR leagues normally, but perhaps it's his nagging knee injury that is hampering him and keeping him from doing what fantasy owners are used to. Right now he should only be trusted in deeper leagues.
Posted: 11/26/2017 8:55am ET
Huddle Up: Amendola should continue to be the slot receiver for the Patriots and will see a handful of targets during the game. He could be a flex option in deeper point-per-reception leagues but can be avoided in most standard leagues.
Posted: 11/26/2017 5:53am ET
Huddle Up: Amendola was listed as questionable on the injury report but was a limited practice participant throughout the week. He should be viewed as a viable option in PPR fantasy formats.
Posted: 11/24/2017 1:39pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola should be on the field this week despite the questionable tag and probably will receive a decent amount of targets during the game. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Posted: 11/23/2017 1:30pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola should be in uniform against the Miami Dolphins as long as he does not suffer a setback. He is coming off a terrific Week 11 performance and should receive a solid amount of targets against the Dolphins. Amendola should be at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Posted: 11/22/2017 1:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has been battling an injury for a while, but the nagging knee injury hasn't kept him off the field. He is coming off his most productive fantasy performance of the season, posting eight grabs with 66 yards and a touchdown against the Raiders down in Mexico City. He did leave that game briefly due to dehydration, but he is fine and will be a nice play down the stretch for all fantasy owners, particularly those in PPR.
Posted: 11/19/2017 12:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has been held to 40 yards or less in each of his last four games but was targeted 18 times during that span. He should receive some targets this week but can be benched if owners have better options.
Posted: 11/17/2017 2:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola should be a decent WR4 or flex play, particularly in PPR formats, as he'll suck up targets with Chris Hogan (shoulder) once again sidelined.
Posted: 11/16/2017 4:45pm ET
Huddle Up: The appeal with rolling with Amendola is that Chris Hogan is likely to be inactive again, but in that same scenario last week, the former Ram only managed four catches on four targets for 36 yards against the Broncos. He'll have a considerably easier matchup opposite the Raiders in Week 11, but he remains a risky play regardless. Amendola is better suited for PPR formats.
Posted: 11/15/2017 4:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola should be in uniform this week and may see more targets with Chris Hogan not expected to play. He has been held to under 40 yards in each of the last four games but can still be a valuable option in point-per-reception leagues.
Posted: 11/12/2017 5:23am ET
Huddle Up: Amendola was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is likely to see an expanded role in the offense due to WR Chris Hogan (shoulder) being ruled out and should be viewed as a solid WR3 this week, particularly in PPR fantasy formats.
Posted: 11/10/2017 2:06pm ET
Huddle Up: It sounds like the team is expecting him to serve in a big role on Sunday night, so perhaps he was limited more for preservation purposes. The team needs someone to step up with Chris Hogan sidelined with a shoulder injury, and it appears Amendola will absorb most of Hogan's targets. Amendola is a solid WR3 in most fantasy formats this week, especially PPR, while Phillip Dorsett should also see a larger role and is a sleeper streaming option.
Posted: 11/9/2017 3:24pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola could be headed to a more significant role on Sunday night with Chris Hogan (shoulder) likely out. However, he has to prove he's healthy enough to suit up first, and even then, it won't be an easy task going up against Denver's stingy secondary. If Amendola is out along with Hogan, Phillip Dorsett would be an interesting sleeper play.
Posted: 11/8/2017 2:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has hit somewhat of a wall after a decent start to the season, averaging only 24.6 yards per game over his last three games. That being said, Amendola can still be started as a flex if Chris Hogan does not play this week.
Posted: 10/29/2017 8:58am ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has reached the end zone just once this season and has been held to fewer than 50 receiving yards in four of his last five contests. He's not worthy of consideration as anything more than a flex option in PPR formats.
Posted: 10/29/2017 5:30am ET
Huddle Up: Amendola was listed as questionable on the injury report and was a limited participant in two out of three practice sessions during the week. He shouldn't be regarded as anything more than a flex option in PPR leagues.
Posted: 10/27/2017 6:43pm ET
Huddle Up: It sounds like Amendola is likely to take the field this weekend, but he has been held under 50 yards in four of his six games this year. He is no more than a flex option in PPR formats.
Posted: 10/27/2017 3:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola appears to have a good chance to play against the Los Angeles Chargers, but owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineup. He has been quiet over the last few weeks but can still be a flex option in point-per-receptions leagues.
Posted: 10/26/2017 4:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola missed practice on Wednesday, so this is encouraging regarding his status for Sunday. He still may end up being a game-time call, but fortunately, his game will be taking place during the early slate. If Amendola is able to suit up, the former Ram will be a decent WR3 option, as the Patriots have averaged more than 30 points per game at home with Tom Brady under center over the last five seasons. There's a good shot they live up to that.
Posted: 10/26/2017 2:56pm ET
Huddle Up: The injury bug has bitten Amendola again. It makes sense that the Patriots would sit Amendola this week before their bye, but his status will need to be monitored heading into the weekend. If he can't go then Rob Gronkwoski, Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan and James White will demand almost all of Tom Brady's targets. The above four players should all be started, for the record.
Posted: 10/25/2017 3:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will have to check later in the week to see if Amendola is in any danger of missing Week 8. He has recorded only 57 yards over the last two games but still has solid role in the team's passing game. Amendola can be a flex option point-per-reception leagues.
Posted: 10/15/2017 1:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has been a solid target for the Patriots this season but posted a season low in yards this week. He will continue to see a solid amount of targets and can be at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Posted: 10/5/2017 10:07pm ET
Huddle Up: As usual, Amendola worked short and averaged just 9.6 yards per catch. The 31-year-old is never going to stretch the field, but Tom Brady trusts him to be in right spot on crucial downs. He's a steady flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Posted: 9/29/2017 2:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has been targeted 12 times in his two games and will remain a reliable option for Tom Brady in the passing game. He can be considered at least as a flex option for owners this week.
Posted: 9/28/2017 1:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola should be on the field this week against the Carolina Panthers and will continue to be the slot receiver. He likely will receive a solid amount of targets in Week 4 and can be at least a flex option in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 9/27/2017 1:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola was back in action in Week 3 after a one-week hiatus and he posted 48 yards on three receptions. When he is on the field he is a solid WR3, especially in PPR fantasy formats.
Posted: 9/24/2017 3:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola's targets likely will change depending on the opponent but should be involved in the passing game as the slot receiver. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues next week against the Carolina Panthers.
Posted: 9/24/2017 7:17am ET
Huddle Up: Amendola was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be a solid WR3 or flex option in most fantasy formats, although it wouldn't be surprising if the Patriots attempt to limit his snaps in his first game since the season opener.
Posted: 9/22/2017 2:23pm ET
Huddle Up: The veteran proclaimed himself 'good to go' earlier in the day, so the injury report designation looks to be a formality. He opened with 100 receiving yards in Week 1 and could be a valuable fantasy asset if he can stay on the field.
Posted: 9/22/2017 10:59am ET
Huddle Up: While an in-game injury is always a risk for someone like Amendola, the primary slot option in the New England offense is always a good bet for a huge PPR day. Even though the Patriots figure to limit his snaps, he should remain a solid WR3 option in most leagues.
Posted: 9/21/2017 1:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola will need to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared, so he may be a game-time decision. Amendola will have a solid role in the passing game when he returns, but owners may want to use other options this week.
Posted: 9/20/2017 10:36am ET
Huddle Up: Owners of Gronkowski and Amendola have to be encouraged by this news, as the Patriots would have likely held out both players if there was any concern about setbacks and/or their status for Week 3. For now, it appears both are on the right track to start Week 3 against the Houston Texans. Don't hesitate to start either player, so long as both make it through the week without any further issues.
Posted: 9/15/2017 2:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Phillip Dorsett likely will serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Patriots this week but may not have a big role in the passing game. Owners should be able to find other receivers to use in their lineups. James White, Rex Burkhead and Dion Lewis may be more involved in the passing game and could be flex options in some leagues.
Posted: 9/15/2017 9:33am ET
Huddle Up: The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe notes it has been at least nine years since a Patriot played after missing a full week of practice, pretty much confirming Amendola will sit in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan figure to see more time in the slot as a result, while James White, Rex Burkhead and possibly even Dion Lewis should see more work in the passing game in what figures to be a bit of a shootout with the Saints.
Posted: 9/14/2017 10:35am ET
Huddle Up: It's looking like a longshot for Amendola to play this week after missing back-to-back practices. Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan are both great plays, though, especially Cooks in what will be a revenge game on the road against the New Orleans Saints. Look for both receivers to make nice rebounds after a rocky start to the season.
Posted: 9/13/2017 9:47pm ET
Huddle Up: As already reported, Amendola predictably missed practice on Wednesday, and this newfound knee injury makes it even more unlikely that he suits up in Week 2. It's a tough blow for owners who scored a real bargain by drafting the former Ram in the latter rounds, after how impressive he was filling in for injured WR Julian Edelman (knee) in the opener. Those who are desperate at wide receiver and in deep formats might want to give Phillip Dorsett a look, as New England's next affair is a probable shootout in New Orleans.
Posted: 9/13/2017 9:36am ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has suffered multiple documented concussions throughout his career, so this news - or the likelihood he does not play Week 2 - should not come as a surprise. Already expected to be a part-time player despite the season-ending injury to Julian Edelman, this latest head injury may cement that status despite his solid play in Week 1. Expect Chris Hogan and Brandin cooks to see more time in the slot moving forward.
Posted: 9/7/2017 8:51pm ET
Huddle Up: It didn't take long for the oft-injured receiver to suffer another injury. To rub salt in the wound, he was having a great game before he went down, catching six passes for 100 yards. If Amendola misses more time, Chris Hogan would have WR3 potential.
Posted: 9/4/2017 10:06pm ET
Huddle Up: That's not exactly what owners of Amendola want to hear, especially those who expect the former Ram to fully help fill the void left in the absence of Julian Edelman's injury. However, it's probably not as bad as it sounds, as Amendola should still manage to provide enough production on a weekly basis to at least keep him relevant enough in the deeper formats. He'll enter the new campaign with WR3 potential.
Posted: 8/28/2017 9:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Brandin Cooks obviously has the highest ceiling within New England's receiving corps but it may be Danny Amendola who benefits the most from Julian Edelman's unfortunate season-ending injury. With WR3/FLEX potential, and a ceiling that could potentially solidify him as a legit WR2, Amendola should be drafted in all leagues and may be worth reaching for. Edelman's whopping 158 targets from a year ago are out there for the taking.
Posted: 5/28/2017 10:45am ET
Huddle Up: Brandin Cooks, Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell aren't going anywhere, while Matthew Slater's Pro Bowl-caliber work on special teams pretty much makes him a lock. Amendola holds the edge because he is a known quantity in New England, but his injury history give Hawkins a legitimate chance to stick. Neither player figures to be worth much in fantasy, however.
Posted: 2/12/2017 10:18am ET
Huddle Up: Amendola keeps producing in big games and the team obviously trusts him in those spots (eight catches for 78 yards, a touchdown and a game-tying two-point conversion in Super Bowl LI), but he is the No. 4 receiver on the team behind Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell. As a result, he'll probably need to take another sizable pay cut like he has each of the last two years in order to remain in Foxboro. He can be ignored in most fantasy leagues.
