Danny Amendola missed his two targets and rushed once for 15 yards in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Texans.

Amendola played only in four-receiver sets and wasn’t visible on special teams as Dion Lewis returned kickoffs and Julian Edelman continued to handle punts. Amendola’s highlight play was a fourth-quarter double reverse that gained 15. Amendola will remain game-day insurance behind the Patriots' featured receivers in the Conference Championship round.
Jan 14 - 11:56 PM

Danny Amendola (ankle) is practicing fully this week.

Amendola has been out since Week 13 with a high-ankle sprain. The Patriots' plan had always been to get him back for the Divisional Round. Amendola will fight with Malcolm Mitchell and Chris Hogan for targets behind Julian Edelman.

Danny Amendola (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

He's been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain against the Rams in Week 13. The Patriots' receiving corps is crowded, but Amendola has had some big playoff games for New England. He has just 23 catches on the year.
Jan 4 - 1:20 PM

Danny Amendola suffered a high-ankle sprain Week 13 against the Rams.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the "plan is to make sure he's ready for the playoffs," suggesting he will be out for the rest of the regular season. Amendola does not have much fantasy value on his own, but his absence solidifies Malcolm Mitchell's spot in the offense. Mitchell is shaping up as a solid WR3 despite a tough schedule the rest of the way.

Danny Amendola went to the locker room with a right ankle injury in the third quarter of Sunday's Week 13 game.

He got hurt on a punt return, then hopped off the field unable to put any pressure on his injured leg. Amendola did not return and was spotted in the Patriots' locker room with a boot and crutches after the win.

Danny Amendola handled two-of-three targets for two yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Patriots' Week 11 win over the 49ers.

With DFS players going all-in on LeGarrette Blount and Martellus Bennett, of course Amendola found the end zone with Blount and Bennett both coming up empty. Aside from vulturing a five-yard touchdown to begin the fourth quarter, Amendola was essentially non-existent. He wasn’t targeted at all in the first half and fumbled on a punt return, though he was able to recover it. Amendola has already set a new career-high in touchdowns (four) despite seeing just 23 targets this year. Fantasy owners can safely skip him next week against the Jets.

Danny Amendola one pass for 14 yards in Week 10 against Seattle.

Amendola was a non-factor even with Chris Hogan (back) limited. He remains off the fantasy radar.

Danny Amendola secured three-of-four targets for 29 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Patriots' Week 8 win over the Bills.

He also contributed a 73-yard punt return that set up a two-play touchdown drive at the start of the second half. Amendola was left wide open on his nine-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. It looked like Buffalo safety Jonathan Meeks missed his assignment on the play. Three of Amendola’s 16 catches this year have gone for touchdowns. He won’t be on the fantasy radar when the Patriots come back from their bye week against Seattle.

Danny Amendola caught 2-of-2 targets for 11 yards in New England's Week 5 win over the Browns.

Tom Brady was back, but Amendola remained largely invisible. He's behind Chris Hogan on the depth chart. Amendola has 11 catches in five games.

Danny Amendola caught 4-of-4 targets for 50 yards and two touchdowns in New England's Week 2 win over the Dolphins.

Amendola also lost a soft fumble, letting the ball get punched out from behind. The touchdowns were just his seventh and eighth in four years as a Patriot. With Jacoby Brissett under center for Week 3, Amendola won't be a viable play in any format.
Sun, Sep 18, 2016 05:38:00 PM

Danny Amendola secured three-of-four targets for 48 yards in the Patriots' Week 1 win over the Cardinals.

Amendola operated as New England’s No. 4 wide receiver behind starters Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and rookie Malcolm Mitchell. That’s not an encouraging sign, though Amendola keyed the Patriots’ fourth-quarter comeback by snagging a 32-yard catch to convert on third-and-15. Amendola will have big weeks here and there but his inconsistency and uncertain role in the Patriots’ passing game makes him a difficult player to trust in fantasy.

Danny Amendola (knee, ankle) is absent from the Week 1 injury report.

Amendola just returned to practice on Sunday, but is evidently 100 percent. We still wouldn't be stunned if the Pats made him a "healthy scratch" for the opener — it's hard to believe he's in top-notch shape after missing so much practice time — but he's more likely to play than not. With a jumble on the receiver depth chart and Tom Brady on the couch, Amendola is off the fantasy radar for the time being.
Fri, Sep 9, 2016 06:42:00 PM

Danny Amendola (knee, ankle) is optimistic about his status for Week 1.

"I’ve been preparing a lot," said Amendola. "I feel strong, I feel fast, I’m ready to roll." Amendola returned to practice on Sunday following a long recovery from knee and ankle surgeries. In a crowded New England offense, Amendola is no better than the Patriots' third-best receiving option. He's a better real-life player than a fantasy asset.

Danny Amendola (knee, ankle) returned to the practice field Sunday.

Amendola was surprisingly activated off the PUP list at final cuts, and now he has surprisingly returned to practice. He is still questionable at best for Week 1, but it looks like he will be ready to return in the near future.
