Sun, 29 Nov 2015 16:45:49 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) is inactive for the Week 12 game against the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Tip: As expected, Amendola is on the shelf. That leaves Brandon LaFell as the top wideout with Keshawn Martin and Chris Harper also in the mix.
Sat, 28 Nov 2015 16:33:42 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) has been ruled out for Week 12.
Fantasy Tip: Brandon LaFell ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) will likely be leaned upon more heavily, and the team could use James White ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) in the backfield more, which would hurt LeGarrette Blount's ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) value. You just never know with the Patriots. LaFell is a solid flex option on FantasyScore, though.
Sat, 28 Nov 2015 08:00:49 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) is not expected to travel with the team for their Week 12 game against the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Tip: Brandon LaFell ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) and Rob Gronkowski ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) likely will receive a majority of the targets against the Broncos because of the injuries the team has at receiver. They will be facing a tough Broncos defense but could be solid options for fantasy owners.
Fri, 27 Nov 2015 16:23:04 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, Nov. 27, and is questionable for Week 12 against the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is one of Tom Brady's few remaining reliable aerial targets besides Rob Gronkowski and Brandon LaFell. He'll have a big role if he plays, but he could be a game-time decision in the late game, and the matchup isn't idea. Consider Amendola too risky this week on FantasyScore.
Thu, 26 Nov 2015 11:05:18 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 26.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) would have a tough matchup against the Denver Broncos if he suits up this weekend.
Wed, 25 Nov 2015 13:40:04 -0800
New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman (foot), Danny Amendola (knee) and Aaron Dobson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are hurting at wide receiver right now; Brandon LaFell ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) is really the only healthy starting receiver. Edelman will probably miss this week, but keep tabs on Amendola and Dobson as the week continues. LaFell isn't a bad play on FantasyScore either way, but especially if Amendola sits.
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 14:06:15 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) suffered a knee sprain in a Week 11 win over the Buffalo Bills. He is not expected to miss extended time, though. Amendola still may not play in Week 12, however. His status will depend on how he reacts to treatment and an increased workload as the week progresses.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) seems to have avoided a serious injury, but he should be monitored leading up to the Patriots' Week 12 contest. He's now the Patriots' No. 1 wide receiver with Julian Edelman out. If he does play, he has a really tough matchup against a top-tier Denver Broncos' pass defense.
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 06:12:02 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) will have an MRI on his knee Tuesday, Nov. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Keep tabs on Amendola, who will have a tough matchup against the Denver Broncos in Week 12.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 22:12:48 -0800
Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) returned from the locker room to the sideline for the fourth quarter of the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 23, and he was walking around under his own power.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola is certainly needed with Aaron Dobson going down and Julian Edelman done for the regular season, so perhaps he did not re-enter the game as a precaution. More updates when we know them.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 20:08:50 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) suffered a right knee injury on a non-contact play on a punt return in the third quarter of the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 23.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola went for attention on the sidelines due to the issue, and he is questionable to return. Before leaving he posted the seventh 100-yard game of his career.
Sun, 15 Nov 2015 18:32:08 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola had 10 catches on 11 targets for 79 yards in a 27-26 win over the New York Giants in Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) saw plenty of looks after Julian Edelman exited with a foot injury. If Edelman misses more time, Amendola becomes an attractive option at FantasyScore.
Thu, 29 Oct 2015 10:24:01 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has a 122.1 quarterback rating in the last 11 games when throwing to WR Danny Amendola. His rating throwing to WR Julian Edelman in the same time frame is 99.3, and TE Rob Gronkowski's is 106.8.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has quietly been one of the more productive pass catchers for the Patriots this year, but he's in the shadow of both Edelman and Gronkowski. Now he'll also have Brandon LaFell taking targets away from him, but he'll still remain a sleeper target on FantasyScore in a flex spot.
Sun, 25 Oct 2015 16:26:54 -0700
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola had eight catches for 86 yards and a touchdown in a 30-23 win over the New York Jets in Week 7.
Fantasy Tip: Coming off a 105-yard performance in Week 6, Amendola ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) was a big part of the passing game once again. Injuries have always been an issue, but as long as he is healthy, he will have some sleeper potential at FantasyScore.
Sun, 18 Oct 2015 22:28:29 -0700
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola hauled in seven receptions for 105 yards in the Week 6 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He was targeted nine times.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could be a solid FantasyScore option going forward if he can start to perform like this one a regular basis. Just don't expect his salary to remain this low for long.
Fri, 13 Mar 2015 07:07:46 -0700
Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola's revised contract saved the team $2,583,334 in cap space. His 2015 salary was cut from $4 million to $1.25 million, and he was given a $500,000 signing bonus.
Thu, 12 Mar 2015 09:40:37 -0700
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola had his contract reworked Thursday, March 12. The deal is for three years and $12.75 million. Amendola can make up to $15 million in total.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola mostly disappeared in 2014, catching only 27 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown, but he came on strong at the end of the season and had some clutch catches in the team's Super Bowl run. The oft-injured wideout has become more of a third-down option for the Pats. He's a late-round flier in standard leagues in 2015, but he's probably best left to the waiver wire.
Sat, 10 Jan 2015 16:08:56 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola has nailed two big plays for touchdowns in the divisional-round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola was the recipient of a trick play on a 51-yard touchdown pass from Julian Edelman and leaped into the end zone on another 15-yard catch. He made up for two early miscues and has outplayed his $3,000 price tag on FantasyScore with four catches for 75 yards and those two scores.
Sat, 10 Jan 2015 13:50:47 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola has had two miscues early in the divisional-playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10.
Fantasy Tip: He fumbled a kickoff return, which the team recovered. He also had a catch overturned due to using the ground to assist with the catch. The reason this is notable is because Tom Brady is very big on trust, and Amendola had a very shaky season. Amendola was a sneaky $3,000 flyer on FantasyScore today, and these two plays could make Brady shy away from him the rest of the game.
Sun, 28 Dec 2014 08:47:58 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola should see more work with WR Julian Edelman inactive Sunday, Dec. 28.
Fantasy Tip: Danny Amendola is worth a flyer as a WR3 or flex on FantasyScore.
Mon, 22 Dec 2014 15:15:15 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola played 44 of the team's 61 offensive snaps in Week 16 against the New York Jets with WR Julian Edelman (concussion) sidelined. Amendola played a season-low 12 offensive snaps in Week 15. The team's receivers struggled to gain consistent separation with Edelman out of the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Edelman could sit again in Week 17. If he does, Amendola ($5,555) is worth a look as a weak flex play at FantasyScore. However, depending on the outcome of the Denver Broncos-Cincinnati Bengals game tonight, the Patriots could rest most of their players in Week 17.
Fri, 07 Nov 2014 07:19:33 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola's role has grown with the team's increased usage of three-receiver sets. The team used three wide receivers in 47 of 86 offensive plays last week.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola is too risky of a selection to bank on in FantasyScore right now. However, he could emerge as the season progresses. His usage negatively impacts Tim Wright's usage in two-tight end sets.
Mon, 06 Oct 2014 15:23:27 -0700
New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell played a team-high 77 out of 84 offensive snaps in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he's clearly now the top outside receiving option for the team. WR Danny Amendola (20 out of 84 snaps) wasn't used much because the Patriots didn't use many three-receiver sets.
Fantasy Tip: After a 119-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 4, LaFell disappointed with just one catch on four targets against the Bengals. However, the fact that he played the most snaps of all receivers is a big positive. It's time to start giving him a look on the waiver wire if he's out there in your league.
Fri, 03 Oct 2014 07:49:18 -0700
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (groin) disclosed that he had offseason surgery to repair his adductor muscle. Amendola has had trouble gaining separation from defenders, but he declined to use the operation as an excuse.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola is still worth rostering in deeper leagues, but it's clear QB Tom Brady doesn't have a lot of faith in him right now. He'll cost you $3,000 (6% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week. However, it would be nice to see progress before making that cheap gamble.
Mon, 08 Sep 2014 05:46:16 -0700
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola had three catches for 16 yards in Week 1. He played 71 percent of the snaps in Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola could be at a solid price point for a WR3 on FantasyScore for Week 2 against the Vikings.
Fri, 22 Aug 2014 22:41:55 -0700
New England Patriots WR Josh Boyce did not play an offensive snap until there was 1:26 remaining in the third quarter of the preseason game Friday, Aug. 22, against the Carolina Panthers. He is considered to be decisively behind WRs Kenbrell Thompkins, Aaron Dobson (foot), Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell on the depth chart.
Thu, 07 Aug 2014 16:46:46 -0700
New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman (undisclosed) and Danny Amendola (undisclosed) did not play in the team's preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 7.
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:33:17 -0700
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola has spent the offseason working with trainer Alex Guerrero. Guerrero is also QB Tom Brady's trainer, and he helped WR Julian Edelman prior to last season.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola has usually produced solid numbers when healthy, especially in PPR formats, but he has battled a variety of injuries throughout his career. He has WR2 potential in PPR formats, but because of his injury history, he should be drafted as a WR3.
Fri, 20 Jun 2014 12:17:58 -0700
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola and QB Tom Brady have developed a nice rapport this offseason, according to a source. WR Kenbrell Thompkins also impressed during drills, beating new CB Brandon Browner frequently.
Fantasy Tip: Now the trick will be for Amendola to develop a rapport with good health, as he has missed 11 games the past two seasons. If Amendola can stay healthy and further his connection with Brady, he could be an under-the-radar sleeper in 2014.
Mon, 09 Jun 2014 05:30:39 -0700
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola looks like the player that impressed the team in practice last year early on in OTAs.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola still has a lot of value and doesn't seem to have the hype leading up to drafts. He makes for a great WR2 in PPR and standard leagues.
Wed, 04 Jun 2014 16:09:19 -0700
New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is looking forward to a more productive season from WR Danny Amendola in his second year with the team. "Danny's not dissimilar to the rookies," McDaniels said. "He wasn't here before, and he had an opportunity to get a foundation and a system last year. And now it's his second year, and it will be exciting to see Danny's growth. Any time you're in your second year in a system, you're more comfortable. We're excited to see what he does." However, after the team expected him to be a big part of the offense in 2013, they aren't trusting him to be a featured piece in 2014.
Fantasy Tip: Julian Edelman, Shane Vereen, Rob Gronkowski and possibly even Brandon LaFell, Aaron Dobson or Kenbrell Thompkins could be in line to see more targets from Tom Brady this year. Amendola, mainly thanks to his injury history, may struggle to scratch his way into the top-50 wide receivers.
Thu, 08 May 2014 07:17:43 -0700
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (groin) is taking part in voluntary offseason workouts with the team. He didn't have surgery on his groin this offseason but said he did a lot of rehab work and feels healthy.
Thu, 06 Mar 2014 02:00:38 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola cannot be designated as a post-June 1 cut for the 2014 season. The Patriots have to carry the wide receiver on the roster into the '14 league year to make him a June 1 cut and if they do that, his '14 base is guaranteed.
Sat, 01 Mar 2014 23:28:09 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola may be on the trading block following a dismal first year of his five-year, $25.5 million contract. If a trade can't be completed, the Patriots could simply release Amendola, who costs $4.575 million against the 2014 salary cap but who would leave behind $6.8 million in dead money.
Fri, 07 Feb 2014 11:23:31 -0800
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman should feel like he is every bit as valuable as WR Danny Amendola's five year deal that was worth $31 million, in the opinion of Jeff Howe of The Boston Herald. Howe believes Edelman will not be interested in giving a home-team discount on a contract because the Patriots allowed him to visit the Giants for two days last offseason.
Sun, 26 Jan 2014 07:54:08 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola may be fighting for a roster spot in 2014. $2 million of his $3 million base salary becomes guaranteed if he is on the roster at 4pm on Mar. 11.

Sat, 28 Dec 2013 06:51:44 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola is excited to be playing meaningful football for the first time in his career, but is not looking too far ahead past his Week 17 match up. "Playing meaningful football late in the season is something everyone strives for. It'll be exciting. But obviously (I'm) just focused on the Bills right now," Amendola said. "I really haven't stopped to look around. All we really do is work. I really don't do much else.
"Once the offseason rolls around, I'll have time to kind of reflect on things — but not yet."
Fri, 27 Dec 2013 15:20:36 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as probable for Week 17.

Wed, 18 Dec 2013 15:58:57 -0800
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (groin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola becomes a much safer play with Rob Gronkowski out. Consider Amendola a solid WR2 against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16.
