Huddle Up: Sounds precautionary more than anything, especially with Amendola who typically only has a limited number of games in him anyway.
Posted: 6/9/2014 9:16am ET
Huddle Up: The key for Amendola is staying healthy; if he's able to remain intact he'll be a valuable fantasy contributor. Of course, we still have OTAs, training camp, and a 16-game NFL slate to go--which is why at present Amendola's fantasy value is discounted.
Posted: 5/8/2014 7:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Naturally Amendola feels good now after 3-plus months of rest and rehab, but it's definitely been a different story come fall of late.
Posted: 3/6/2014 1:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola caught 51 fewer passes for 423 fewer yards than fellow wideout Julian Edelman, who is a free agent, and it would be far more cost-effective to go with the former rather than the latter in 2014 if it boils down to finances.

Huddle Up: Amendola, was a fantasy fizzler with his 54-633-2 showing last season, and if couldn't make a impact on a WR-needy team quarterbacked by Tom Brady, it's more than fair to wonder where he could go where the situation would be better.
Posted: 1/26/2014 4:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola's continued injury issues (4 missed games and limited in others) and the emergence of Julian Edelman (team-leading and career-high 105 receptions) could spell a 1-and-done stay in N.E. for the former. Either way, look for the Pats to upgrade their WR corps this offseason.
Posted: 1/24/2014 11:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola played through the injury, albeit ineffectively; here's hoping the decision to heal on his own works out and he doesn't realize right around the time training camp opens that he's going to need surgery anyway.
Posted: 12/27/2013 10:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Strangely, health hasn't been the issue of late for Amendola, who has only 1 TD catch and has averaged 47.2 receiving yards per game over the Pats' last 6 contests.
Posted: 11/21/2013 7:49pm ET
Huddle Up: No surprise: Another health issue for Amendola to deal with. Further examining his stat lines, it's been a 2-game season for the wideout as he caught a combined 14 passes for 226 yards and a TD in Weeks 1 & 9. In the other 4 games he's played in, Amendola has 15 receptions for 115 yards and no scores.

Huddle Up: This is good news for both owners of Amendola and Tom Brady. Amendola should be heavily targeted against Miami. Start him with confidence.
Posted: 10/25/2013 1:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has practiced all week, but the Boston Herald cautions that he still hasn't received medical clearance to play Sunday. That decision -- a yea or nay -- could be coming at any time, up to and including a game-time decision.
Posted: 10/23/2013 7:37pm ET
Huddle Up: The good news is Amendola has been cleared to practice. If he's able to play against Miami on Sunday, Amendola will be a WR2 for fantasy owners.
Posted: 10/23/2013 11:27am ET
Huddle Up: Amendola sat out last week's game, and if he's back at practice you would assume he's cleared the necessary league protocols. Tom Brady will be glad to have him back in the mix.
Posted: 10/21/2013 5:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Hopefully Amendola could come back sooner than later, but this doesn't sound promising for Week 8.
Posted: 10/18/2013 2:16pm ET
Huddle Up: If Amendola sits out, it'll be his 24th missed game (out of a possible 39) since the start of the 2011 season, so it's really only newsworthy anymore if the wideout actually suits up and plays.
Posted: 10/17/2013 12:04pm ET
Huddle Up: We'll see if Amendola gets in a practice session this week, and if he passes the league concussion testing in time to play on Sunday. If he can't go, bump Julian Edelman back up your value board.
Posted: 10/7/2013 10:25am ET
Huddle Up: Amendola was to be on a "limited" snap count, and playing about 60 percent of the Patriots' offensive snap is limited for a guy who when healthy will command the bulk of Tom Brady's attention. The good news is that if Amendola survived playing on wet turf without aggravating the injury he should be ready for a larger play count going forward.
Posted: 10/5/2013 12:38pm ET
Huddle Up: It looks like this could finally be the week Amendola returns but we won't know for sure until closer to gametime. If Amendola is active, he should be in your starting lineup as a WR2 this week.
Posted: 10/4/2013 5:58pm ET
Huddle Up: That's the opposite of the current speculation on teammate Rob Gronkowski, but then again it's the Pats so it's anyone's guess right now. If you're looking to start Amendola if he plays, you're likely going to have to wait until the final hour before kickoff Sunday morning.
Posted: 10/2/2013 8:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola will be a game-time decision again this week. Fantasy owners will have to wait until Sunday to see if Tom Brady's No. 1 option will return against the Bengals or be sidelined for another week.
Posted: 10/2/2013 1:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Of course, according to the Patriots' injury reports Gronk and Amendola have been practicing "on a limited basis" for the past couple of weeks so it's difficult to determine if one or both will be available for game action this weekend.
Posted: 9/29/2013 2:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Who knows with the Patriots. This would be a boon to Tom Brady and fantasy owners across the country, though.
Posted: 9/28/2013 4:41pm ET
Huddle Up: There were rumblings that Amendola could play this week but he's still dealing with his groin injury that could linger for most of the season. Expect Julian Edelman to once again be a target monster on Sunday night in what could be a high scoring game.
Posted: 9/27/2013 4:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Some reports suggest Amendola could play but it's likely he will sit out one more week with his groin injury. The Patriots play on Sunday night so if you roll the dice on Amendola, make sure you have a Plan B in place.
Posted: 9/25/2013 6:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Those who thought Amendola would replace Wes Welker obviously forgot he gets hurt blowing his nose. It's another lost week for Amendola owners and his absence continues to hinder Tom Brady's overall fantasy value. Hopefully for Brady, Rob Gronkowski will make his season debut Sunday night.
Posted: 9/25/2013 5:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Define "near future." That could be 2 weeks or 2 months. It's good to see he is improving, but tough to have him languishing on your bench. Hopefully he comes back sooner than later.
Posted: 9/24/2013 9:58am ET
Huddle Up: Of course, with the Patriots you can get anything from a hangnail to a hip replacement listed as "limited in practice, questionable" so it's tough to determine just what Amendola's timetable might be. But "progressing well" is better than the alternative.
Posted: 9/20/2013 7:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola isn't going to play against the Bucs. Hopefully he'll be back on the field in Week 4 where fantasy owners can pencil him in for his usual 7-10 receptions from Tom Brady.
Posted: 9/17/2013 8:14pm ET
Huddle Up: And so it goes with Amendola, who's missed 21 of 34 games -- and counting -- since the start of the 2011 season.
Posted: 9/16/2013 5:22pm ET
Huddle Up: This is interesting news given the grim diagnosis Amendola got last week. It doesn't seem like he will be ready to play soon, but the fact he is practicing at all is encouraging.
Posted: 9/15/2013 5:18pm ET
Huddle Up: This sounds terrible for Amendola, but this shouldn't be surprising given his history of freak injuries.
Posted: 9/12/2013 12:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Those who drafted Amendola had to know what they were getting into, but they at least were hoping to get a couple games out of the wideout before the injury issues cropped up. Many, though, have smartly covered themselves by picking up Julian Edelman off waivers this week.
Posted: 9/11/2013 9:56am ET
Huddle Up: The short turnaround certainly doesn't help Amendola. Best make other arrangements for Week 2 if Amendola has been a regular in your fantasy lineup.
Posted: 9/9/2013 6:19pm ET
Huddle Up: This should come as no surprise, especially given the short week. He and Tom Brady were locked in against the Bills, so there is little to worry about here unless his injury persists.
Posted: 9/6/2013 6:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola is expected to start Sunday against Buffalo and he should have a big day playing against a Bills secondary that will be without CB Stephon Gilmore and S Jairus Byrd. Anything less than high-end WR2 production from Amendola in his Patriots' debut will be a big disappointment.
Posted: 9/5/2013 2:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Some of the injury concerns may have scared off some fantasy GMs, but if he's starting and playing -- especially with Tom Brady as his QB -- he's going to produce.
Posted: 9/4/2013 6:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Amendola has been dealing with a groin injury but all signs point to him starting Sunday against Buffalo. As long as he's in the lineup, Amendola should put up WR1 numbers in PPR formats.
Posted: 8/29/2013 7:00pm ET
Huddle Up: See the note on Brady above.
