    St. Louis Rams

    Position
    WR
     
    Jersey
    80
    Name  Danny Amendola
    Born  11/2/1985
    Height  5-11
    Weight  188
    College  Texas Tech
    1/10/2015 8:28:00 PM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola picked a great time to have his best game in New England.
    Insight: Amendola caught five passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns against the Ravens in the AFC Division Round. The second touchdown pass came from Julian Edelman on a trick play in the third quarter. This kind of performance is exactly what the Patriots were hoping to get from Amendola when they signed him to replace Wes Welker.
     
    12/28/2014 7:15:00 PM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola had his second straight game with at least four catches.
    Insight: After a season-high eight catches and 63 yards last week, Amendola had four more catches and 24 yards in Week 17, though, Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman didn't play. It will be interesting to see how Amendola will be involved in the playoffs.
     
    10/17/2014 9:58:00 AM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola has been a non-factor for most of the season and Thursday night was another example.
    Insight: Amendola caught one pass for 19 yards and a score. He has just five catches for 42 yards this season and there is no indication that his workload is going to increase so fantasy owners can continue to ignore him unless Julian Edelman is injured.
     
    6/4/2014 12:10:00 PM
    Description: This could be Danny Amendola's final year in New England if he doesn't get his act together. SOURCE: Boston Globe
    Insight: The Patriots are prepared to cut ties with Amendola if he doesn't show significant improvement this season. Amendola was brought in to replace Wes Welker but didn't come anywhere close to Welker's level of production, catching just 54 passes for 633 yards. You won't have to pay top-dollar for him on draft day.
     
    12/15/2013 5:52:00 PM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola had his third 100-yard game of the season in Week 15 at Miami. He caught 10 balls for 131 yards on 14 targets.
    Insight: That's three more than Wes Welker, for what it's worth. Amendola's first season in New England has been beset by injuries, but he's once again an important piece in this offense with Rob Gronkowski done for the year and rookies Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins also sidelined.
     
    10/27/2013 10:18:00 AM
    Description: The Patriots are getting back wide receiver Danny Amendola Sunday against Miami. SOURCE: Albert Breer, NFL.com
    Insight: He missed last week's game with a concussion. We never know when Amendola's next injury is coming but when he's healthy, it's tough not to put him in your fantasy lineup.
     
    10/25/2013 2:49:00 PM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola (concussion) practiced on a limited basis for a third consecutive day on Friday.
    Insight: According to ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss, Amendola has passed all his concussion tests. The addition of Amendola and the return of Rob Gronkowski makes the Pats' passing game a threat again.
     
    10/25/2013 12:12:00 PM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola (concussion) practiced on a limited basis for a third consecutive day on Friday.
    Insight: He still has to complete a final independent test before he can play, but it's looking pretty good. If Amendola gets through the week without a recurrence of symptoms, he should start in Week 8 and would be a WR2.
     
    10/24/2013 11:41:00 AM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola (concussion) practiced for the second straight day Thursday.
    Insight: He still has to complete a final independent test before he can play, but it's looking pretty good. If Amendola gets through the week without a recurrence of symptoms, he should start in Week 8 and would be a WR2.
     
    10/23/2013 4:02:00 PM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola (concussion) practiced Wednesday, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald.
    Insight: That gives him a good chance of playing Sunday against the Dolphins. The Patriots don't divulge injury information but it's difficult to conceal concussion information, as we know a player has passed tests if they are allowed to practice. If Amendola gets through the week without a recurrence of symptoms, he should start in Week 8 and would be a WR2.
     
    10/18/2013 1:18:00 PM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola (concussion) did not practice Friday and won't be available for Sunday's game against the Jets.
    Insight: Predictably, New England's big offseason acquisition has not been able to stay healthy. Sunday will mark Amendola's fourth absence of the season and we're only in Week 7.
     
    10/17/2013 10:58:00 AM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola (concussion) did not practice again Thursday, according to Boston Herald beat reporter Jeff Howe.
    Insight: New England officially confirmed that Amendola has a concussion, but it typical fashion they aren't revealing much else. We don't expect him to play in Week 7.
     
    10/16/2013 6:59:00 PM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston.
    Insight: New England officially confirmed that Amendola has a concussion. He's a long shot to play Sunday against the Jets, leaving Julian Edelman, Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson as the top three wideouts for the Pats.
     
    10/15/2013 8:23:00 PM
    Description: The Patriots have yet to offer an update on receiver Danny Amendola (probable concussion).
    Insight: According to Tom Curran of CSN New England, the Patriots have put out the word to quit talking about any injured players after there were numerous leaks about Rob Gronkowski in the past few weeks. The Patriots were already pretty tight-lipped regarding injuries, so if we can't count on leaks it's going to be a guessing game as to whether Amendola plays.
     
    10/13/2013 6:45:00 PM
    Description: Patriots wideout Danny Amendola left Sunday's game in the third quarter with a concussion.
    Insight: He'll finish the day with two catches for zero yards and one rushing attempt for one yard. Rookies Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson should see more looks in Amendola's absence.
     
    10/6/2013 6:01:00 PM
    Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady targeted Danny Amendola nine times in the receiver's return to action Sunday against the Bengals, but Amendola had just four catches for 55 yards.
    Insight: Amendola dropped a couple of passes or he would have had a much better day. As is, he led the Pats in receiving yards and targets Sunday and should be a trustworthy fantasy receiver if he can stay on the field.
     
    10/6/2013 10:05:00 AM
    Description: FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that Patriots receiver Danny Amendola will play Sunday against the Bengals but the team is planning to limit his reps.
    Insight: He sat out the last three games with a groin injury. With Amendola playing but limited, it's anyone's guess as to who among Amendola, Julian Edelman and Kenbrell Thompkins will see the most targets from Tom Brady. All three are boom-or-bust WR3s.
     
    10/5/2013 3:52:00 PM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola made the trip to Cincinnati with his teammates. He'll be a game-time call Sunday against the Bengals. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
    Insight: He's expected to play after sitting out the last three games with a groin injury. Amendola had ten catches for 104 yards in the opener and should produce a similar output on Sunday, assuming he's active.
     
    10/5/2013 10:15:00 AM
    Description: New England's top wide receiver Danny Amendola said he's "looking forward to Sunday." SOURCE: Field Yates, ESPN Boston
    Insight: The Patriots are generally very tight-lipped when it comes to injuries and potential Sunday availability but this seems like a pretty big hint. After three weeks on the sidelines with a partially torn groin, it looks like Amendola is finally ready to return to the fold. Now the only question that remains is whether or not Amendola, a talented but extremely injury-prone commodity in recent seasons, will be able to make it through an entire 60 minutes of football Sunday at Cincinnati.
     
    10/2/2013 1:53:00 PM
    Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola (groin) practiced Wednesday and has a good chance of returning to action Sunday.
    Insight: Amendola has missed three straight games after catching 10 passes for 104 yards in Week 1. We won't likely get any solid information out of coach Bill Belichick, so your decision to start or sit him will have to wait until inactives are announced Sunday morning.
