Fantasy Impact: Owners had to double check the uniform number on Amendola Sunday, to make sure it was #80 and not #11 they were watching. Amendola filled the Edelman role on Sunday very nicely catching 8 passes on a team high 11 targets from Tom Brady. Amendola will go back to his old role behind Edelman upon his return.

Fantasy Impact: Amendola matched his highest catch total for the season with 3 catches but only amassed 7 yards. Amendola continues to be a non-factor with the emergence of LaFell in the Patriot offense.
Patriots WR DAnny Amendola hauled in zero catches on one target in the team's Week 2 match-up against the Vikings.
Fantasy Impact: In a crowded receiving corps, Amendola clearly hasn't earned enough of Tom Brady's trust to be fantasy relevant. He's worth keeping an eye on in case another Pat's WR goes down with an injury.
Patriot's WR Danny Amendola brought down 3-of-5 targets for 16 yards in the Patriots' Week 1 game against the Dolphins.
Fantasy Impact: Amendola is a starter, but after such a bad day for the offense, it's hard to say how much fantasy value he will hold. We'll see how things play out, but for the time being, he's playing behind Julian Edelman, and is a WR4 at best.
The Patriot's WR caught one pass for nine yards in Friday's preseason game against the Eagles.
Fantasy Impact: Julian Edelman remains solidly ahead of Amendola in the slot, so it's going to be tough for him to find playing time in the Patriot's normal two-wide sets. We will continue to monitor the situation, but without any significant presence on the field, his fantasy-relevancy is going to be limited.
