Danny Amendola limited in practice


During New England’s Week 11 meeting with the Carolina Panthers, Amendola tallied six receptions for 45 yards on seven targets. While that does amount to 10 points in point-per-reception leagues, that’s not the kind of production you want from a receiver you probably drafted with the hope of him becoming a mid-high WR 2 play every week.

He’s not even a consistent flex option at this point in standard leagues, and if he fails to produce this week against a banged-up Denver Broncos secondary, it may be time to cut your losses with him in your fantasy football league.

Speaking of banged-up, Amendola was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice session:


Amendola has been limited to just six games this year due to multiple injuries, including a torn abductor muscle and a concussion. Over the course of this year, he’s accumulated 29 receptions on 43 targets for 341 yards and one touchdown.

Keep him if you’re in a PPR league, but if you’re in a standard fantasy football league, one more bad performance should lead to his ouster from your roster.
