Player Outlook

Danny Amendola has proven to be more valuable to the Patriots than Fantasy owners since coming to New England in 2013. He's coming off his best year with the Patriots in 2015 with 65 catches for 648 yards and three touchdowns, and we doubt he'll do much better than that this season. Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski remain the focal point of this passing attack, and the Patriots also added Martellus Bennett, Nate Washington and Chris Hogan this offseason. Amendola will still play a vital role (he had 65 targets last year), but his Fantasy value is limited. He is only worth a late-round flier in PPR leagues.

Player News
  • Amendola, who underwent an offseason procedure on his left knee, as well as his ankle, is slated to open training camp on the Patriots' active/PUP list, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Julian Edelman will also be on the list, though both wideouts can be activated and return to practice at any time during camp. It's a situation to track, though at this stage, the duo appears on track to be available by Week 1, barring any setbacks.

  • Patriots' Danny Amendola: Feeling good
    By RotoWire Staff

    Amendola, who underwent an offseason procedure on his left knee, as well as a procedure to remove bone spurs from his ankle, relayed Tuesday that he feels "really good" at this stage, ESPN.com reports. The wideout noted that he "had a couple minor procedures done after the season," with an eye toward heading into the upcoming season "feeling as fresh and ready as (he) can." Amendola's latest comments seem to reinforce the notion previously put forth that his injuries were "minor" and "not a long-term" concern. Though he didn't participate in the Patriots spring practices, and his status for the start of training camp is unclear, Amendola's Week 1 availability does not seem to be in danger at this time.

  • Patriots' Danny Amendola: Injury rehab going well
    By RotoWire Staff

    Though Amendola underwent a procedure on his left knee this offseason and also had bone spurs removed from his ankle, ESPN's Mike Reiss relays that he has been informed that the wideout's ailments have been portrayed as "minor" and "not a long-term" concern. The report also encouragingly notes that Amendola's rehab "has been on a positive track and he's already moving well." While the wideout's on-field activities figure to be limited as training camp approaches, the ESPN report offers an optimistic angle which suggests that Amendola in on pace to be ready for the start of the coming season. In the meantime, with top wideout Julian Edelman bouncing back from foot woes, the likes of Chris Hogan, Nate Washington, Aaron Dobson, Malcolm Mitchell and Devin Lucien should see added reps during the Patriots' upcoming OTAs and minicamps.

  • Amendola (knee/ankle) underwent a pair of procedures early in the offseason that could impact the start of his 2016 campaign, the Boston Herald reports. At this stage, a timetable for when the wideout might return to full strength has yet to be outlined, though the report suggests that there is hope that he might be ready to participate in training camp. One procedure that Amendola underwent addressed a left knee issue, while the other was performed to remove a bone spur in his ankle. Given that he recently restructured his contract with the Patriots, Amendola's roster spot appears secure, but if he is forced to miss any time out of the gate, the likes of Chris Hogan, Nate Washington and rookie Malcolm Mitchell could see added opportunities behind Julian Edelman, who is currently bouncing back from foot woes.

  • Amendola has restructured his deal with the Patriots, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Previous to agreeing to restructure his contract with the team, Amendola was in line to earn a base salary of $5 million and count $6.8 million against the team's salary cap in 2016. Per the report, Amendola's new deal holds a maximum value of $7.35 million over two years, but more importantly, it allows the receiver to remain with the franchise, as his prior agreement had made him a candidate to be a salary cap cut. By staying put, Amendola, who recorded 65 catches for 648 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games last season, retains a degree of value in PPR formats, though his target volume tends to spike any time the Patriots' top wideout, Julian Edelman, miss action. This coming season, the team's wideout corps will also include free agent additions Chris Hogan and Nate Washington, returnees Keshawn Martin, Aaron Dobson and Chris Harper, as well as promising draftee Malcolm Mitchell. It's a crowded situation to be sure, but given the trust the Patriots' coaching staff and QB Tom Brady have in Amendola, when he's healthy, the 30-year-old should remain a key cog in the team's passing game in 2016.
