  • Amendola caught six of nine targets for 76 yards in Monday night's 27-20 loss to the Dolphins. Amendola led the Patriots across the board in receiving on a night when the team's passing game as a whole struggled with Brandin Cooks blanketed and Rob Gronkowski suspended. With those two nearly non-factors, Amendola was able to produce his third game of over 75 yards this season and also caught a pass of 25-plus yards for the second straight game. Although New England figures to get Cooks more involved while welcoming Gronk back this Sunday in Pittsburgh, Amendola's outing Monday gives him decent momentum in advance of that contest.

  • Amendola was on the field for 32 of 70 snaps on offense in Sunday's 23-3 win over the Bills, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, Amendola caught two of his four targets for 34 yards, en route to his second straight modest fantasy output. Amendola still has the trust of QB Tom Brady, a reality that should result in more productive outings for him in the coming weeks, when game-flows require more of the veteran wideout's chain-moving skills than they did against the Bills on Sunday.

  • Amendola (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice. Given that Amendola has been limited at practice lately, the assumption is that his status for Sunday's game against the Bills isn't in question. The same can't be said of fellow wideout Chris Hogan (shoulder), who didn't practice Wednesday. In the event that Hogan remains sidelined this weekend, Amendola, while working in the slot, would be in a decent position to bounce back from his one-catch effort against the Dolphins in Week 12.

  • Amendola (knee) brought in one of four targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 35-17 win over the Dolphins. He also fumbled once and returned three punts for four yards. Amendola was somewhat of the forgotten man on an afternoon when Brandin Cooks and Rob Gronkowski combined for 11 receptions, 165 yards and three scores. The veteran possession snare has posted receiving yardage totals in the teens in three of his past five games, but as with many other of the Patriots' skill position players, he could also bounce right back on any given week. Amendola will look to do precisely that against the Bills in Week 13.

  • Amendola (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. With Chris Hogan (shoulder) still sidelined, both Amendola (who hauled in eight of his nine targets for 66 yards and a TD in Week 11's win over the Raiders) and field-stretching wideout Brandin Cooks figure to be busy in Sunday's contest. Amendola is of note more so in PPR formats.
