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.

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.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 11:34:00 AM

Danny Amendola (knee) is expected to play Week 12 against the Dolphins.

As is the norm, Amendola was limited all week because of a knee injury, but he will continue to play through the issue. Coming off a nine-target game against the Raiders, Amendola will be a solid PPR option against the Dolphins and is even worth a look in standard leagues.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 08:34:00 AM

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

Amendola didn't play much in the second half last week, so he may be dealing with a setback. He's still fully expected to play Sunday. With Chris Hogan (shoulder) not expected to return, Amendola is locked into a top-three role.
Wed, Nov 22, 2017 04:25:00 PM

Danny Amendola hauled in 8-of-9 targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 11 win over the Raiders.

Even with Chris Hogan out, Amendola did not see a big bump in targets last week against the Broncos, but that changed against Oakland, with Amendola garnering five targets in the first half and finding the end zone from five yards out in the second quarter. A non-competitive scoreline and dehydration issues limited him in the second half, but he did manage to top 50 yards for just the second time since Week 1. With Chris Hogan (shoulder) looking unlikely to return anytime soon, Amendola will be in play again next week.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 07:40:00 PM

Danny Amendola (knee) is active for Week 11 against the Raiders.

Martellus Bennett (shoulder, hamstring) is also good to go. With Chris Hogan (shoulder) still out, Amendola should see a target bump in what should be a shootout, but he has topped 50 yards once since Week 1.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 03:11:00 PM

Danny Amendola (knee) is questionable for Week 11 against the Raiders.

Amendola's been playing through a hyperextended knee for the past few weeks and should be fine for Sunday's game in Mexico City. He hasn't topped 50 yards since Week 5, though he gets a good matchup Sunday against a listless Raiders secondary.
