    Danny Amendola catches pair of touchdowns in win over Ravens

    Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola had five catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns in New England's 35-31 win over the Ravens Saturday. Amendola caught his first touchdown when quarterback Tom Brady found him in the endzone for a 15-yard strike. The second came after Brady threw a backwards pass to receiver Julian Edelman, who then found Amendola streaking down the field for a 51-yard touchdown to tie the game in the third quarter. It was Amendola's best receiving game of the season and only the second time he surpassed 50 yards receiving.

    Danny Amendola fills in capably

    Getting a chance for extensive playing time with Julian Edelman sidelined by a concussion, Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola took over as quarterback Tom Brady's preferred underneath route runner, leading the team with 11 targets. He caught a season-high eight passes for 63 yards. The Patriots are notoriously tight-lipped about injuries, so no one can say for sure if Edelman will also miss Week 17 against Buffalo, but it's nice to know Amendola can step in with similar numbers if he does. For Edelman owners, he's worth adding as handcuff in case Edelman can't go, and in PPR leagues, he might be worth adding whether or not you own Edelman. Just understand that, like Edelman, you shouldn't be counting on him for big yardage, just lots and lots of opportunities.
