Dolphins signed WR Danny Amendola, formerly of the Patriots, to a two-year, $12 million contract.
The deal reportedly includes $8.25 million guaranteed. After waiting 11 years, the Dolphins are finally taking their revenge for the Patriots poaching Wes Welker. "Playoff Danny" is joining a crowded receiver room in Miami that now includes DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant in addition to Amendola. Having Amendola available in the slot could free up Wilson to play more on the outside. Coach Adam Gase will be happy to have so many bodies at receiver but it's going to make for a nightmare situation in fantasy football. 32-year-old Amendola has appeared in more than 12 games just three times since 2010.

The Boston Herald reports free agent Danny Amendola's market is "unfolding favorably," and that he could receive between $3-$5 million annually.

That could make it hard for the Patriots to keep a player of whom they've requested, and received, $10 million in pay cuts over the past three years. For his part, 32-year-old Amendola has said winning is more important than money. ESPN's Mike Reiss reported last month the "feeling is positive" Amendola will remain in New England.

ESPN's Mike Reiss reports the "feeling is positive" that impending free agent Danny Amendola will be on the Patriots if he decides to play another season.

Amendola turns 33 in November. He's mentioned before that playing for a contender matters more to him than how much money he makes. Coming off 26 catches for 348 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' three playoff games, Amendola showed he definitely has some run left in him. It seems likely the Patriots will try and sign him on a team-friendly deal.

Danny Amendola caught 8-of-11 targets for 152 yards in the Patriots' Super Bowl 52 loss to the Eagles.

Amendola made his presence felt on a 50-yard reception in the first half, exploiting a coverage bust in the Eagles’ defense. On a second-quarter trick play, Amendola wound up to pass and would have had a huge gain to Tom Brady, but Brady dropped it. A flurry of early fourth-quarter catches put Amendola well over 100 yards. Amendola has finished under 700 receiving yards in all nine years of his career, but he’s earned a niche role in the playoffs for New England, and this was arguably Amendola’s best run with a team-high 26/348/2 receiving line in three postseason games. "Playoff Danny" is now a free agent. The Pats would likely take him back for a below-market salary.
Feb 4 - 10:51 PM

Danny Amendola caught 7-of-9 targets for 84 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Jaguars.

The touchdowns doubled Amendola's regular season total. Any time the Pats needed a big play, Amendola seemed to be catching the ball beyond the sticks. He and Brandin Cooks both stepped up after Rob Gronkowski was lost to a first half concussion. Savvy and tough, Amendola figures to be a key target against either of the Vikings or Eagles' tough defenses in Super Bowl LII.
Jan 21 - 7:11 PM

Danny Amendola caught 11-of-13 targets for 112 yards in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Titans.

He led the team in targets, catches, and receiving yards. Amendola piled up chain-moving gains and made repeated first-down gains on third-down passing plays. He won his battles with former Patriot Logan Ryan, who is now the Titans’ slot corner. Amendola’s highlight play was a Willie Mays catch thrown by a scrambling Tom Brady, who dropped it right in the bucket to New England’s slot receiver to extend a drive. Expect Amendola to remain a major part of the Patriots’ game plan in the AFC Championship round, regardless of whether they face the Jags or Steelers.
Jan 13 - 11:57 PM

Danny Amendola hauled in all three of his targets for 28 yards in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Bills.

Amendola was the definition of catch and fall in this game, coming up with a couple big grabs in big situations but not doing anything after the catch. He will remain a low-upside fantasy option in the season finale.

Danny Amendola hauled in 2-of-4 catches for 23 yards in the Patriots' Week 15 win over the Steelers.

Amendola looked like he was going to get something going with two catches in quick succession in the second quarter, but that ended up being the extent of his damage. Amendola will pop up for a big game every now and again, but he is only an option in deeper PPR formats.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 08:15:00 PM

Danny Amendola caught 6-of-9 targets for 76 yards in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to the Dolphins.

Amendola led the team in targets, racking them up over the middle and filling the void left by Rob Gronkowski's suspension. He could have had an even bigger game, but was stopped at the one-yard line on a near score. With Gronk returning and WR Chris Hogan likely playing a bigger role, Amendola is a dicey start in Week 15 against the Steelers.

Danny Amendola caught 2-of-4 targets for 34 yards in the Patriots' Week 13 win over the Bills.

Both of Amendola's catches came on the Pats' opening drive. He then went into hibernation as the Pats wore the Bills down on the ground. It's possible Chris Hogan returns for Week 14, which would burst Amendola's already-tenuous WR4 bubble.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 05:38:00 PM

Danny Amendola (knee) wasn't listed on the Patriots' final injury report for Week 13 against the Bills.

Amendola has been dealing with knee issues for weeks. He hasn't missed any games, but this is the first time he wasn't listed as questionable. Even with Chris Hogan sidelined, Amendola should be avoided for Sunday's Buffalo matchup.
Fri, Dec 1, 2017 04:08:00 PM

Danny Amendola (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Amendola's been playing through a hyperextended knee for several weeks but has yet to miss a game. He's been held to 40 yards or less in five of his last six outings and won't be on the fantasy map for Sunday's game at Buffalo.
Thu, Nov 30, 2017 04:21:00 PM

Danny Amendola (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Amendola has been dealing with knee issues all season. He could be listed as questionable again this week, but should be fine for Sunday's matchup with Buffalo.
Wed, Nov 29, 2017 04:34:00 PM

Danny Amendola caught 1-of-4 targets for 15 yards in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Dolphins.

Although he pops up for productive games now and then, Amendola hasn't been a consistent fantasy contributor in a passing game where he simply doesn't see consistent targets. He's someone to avoid in Week 13 at Buffalo.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 05:01:00 PM

Danny Amendola is active for Week 12 against the Dolphins, as expected.

Amendola was technically listed as questionable with a knee injury, but he was always expected to play. The Patriots will be without ST/WR Matt Slater and TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) on Sunday.
