  • Amendola agreed Wednesday with the Lions on a one-year, $5 million contract extension, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Amendola's extension includes $4.5 million guaranteed and carries a maximum value of $6 million when incentives are included. The 34-year-old recorded 62 catches for 678 yards and one touchdown across 15 regular-season games with Detroit last season, and he stands to once again provide the team with consistency in the slot. In 2019, Amendola quietly had seven games with eight or more targets.

  • Amendola will re-sign with the Lions on a one-year deal, Peter Schrager of Good Morning Football reports. Amendola hauled in 62 passes for 678 yards and one touchdown in 15 games for the Lions last season. The 34-year-old will be entering his 12th season in 2020 and second in Detroit. He figures to once again help out in the slot.

  • Amendola caught two of three targets for 21 receiving yards during Sunday's 27-17 loss to Denver. A week after racking up eight catches for 102 yards on 13 targets against Tampa Bay, Amendola finished second among Detroit receivers in yardage against the Broncos. Unfortunately for those with vested interest in Amendola's fantasy stock, he was the second-leading receiver on an afternoon in which the Lions managed just 117 yards through the air. Amendola is still averaging eight targets per game over his past four outings in spite of his quiet afternoon Sunday, but he carries a 13-game scoring drought heading into a matchup against a Green Bay defense that enters Monday Night Football ranking No. 2 in the NFL with just 146 receptions allowed to opposing wideouts on the season.

  • Amendola caught five of eight targets for 34 yards during Sunday's 20-7 loss to Minnesota. After seeing eight targets from David Blough last Sunday while tight end T.J. Hockenson (ankle) saw 11, Amendola wasn't among the teammates to benefit from Hockenson's placement on injured reserve this past week. Instead, Kenny Golladay (eight targets) and Marvin Jones (seven) were the ones to see a bump. In any case, there's no question that there are more targets up for grabs in Hockenson's absence, and it's possible Amendola could be the one to benefit as soon as Detroit's Week 15 game against a Buccaneers defense that has allowed the second-most receiving yards per game in 2019.

  • Amendola caught three of eight targets for 32 yards during Thursday's 24-20 loss to Chicago. Despite a change at quarterback from Jeff Driskel (hamstring) to third stringer David Blough, Amendola essentially matched the 32.3 receiving yards per game he had averaged in three contests with Driskel at the helm. However, Amendola easily could have done better had he been able to bring in a perfect over-the-shoulder pass that Blough tossed to him in the final minutes of the game. While a bigger outing wasn't meant to be, Amendola investors can at least take solace in the fact he saw as many targets as he did in the past two games with Driskel. Not to mention, Amendola now appears to be the primary punt returner with Jamal Agnew (ankle) banged up and Marvin Hall (foot) on injured reserve.
