Amendola caught eight of 11 targets for 59 yards in Sunday's 31-28 overtime win over the Bears. Amendola led the team in targets and catches with Brock Osweiler filling in for the injured Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) under center, though nobody benefited more from the change at quarterback than Albert Wilson (155 receiving yards, two touchdowns). Regardless of who starts under center for Miami against the Lions in Week 7, Amendola's relevance will likely be limited mostly to deeper PPR formats.
Amendola nabbed three of four targets for 30 yards during Miami's 27-17 loss to the Bengals on Sunday. Amendola once again served as Ryan Tannehill's preferred checkdown target. The veteran wideout made an impressive contested catch for a 16-yard gain to move the chains on third down, but otherwise didn't make much noise against Cincinnati. With DeVante Parker (quadriceps) nearing a return, Amendola could receive a smaller share of targets in Week 6 and beyond.
Amendola brought in two of three targets for 21 yards in the Dolphins' 38-7 loss to the Patriots on Sunday. Amendola's first game against his former team was largely forgettable, as Miami logged a lackluster offensive performance and failed to do any damage through the passing game, with no receiver going over 50 yards. Though the Dolphins will look to bounce back against the Bengals in Week 5, Amendola remains a low-upside fantasy option. The 32-year-old has yet to surpass 42 yards or record a touchdown this season.
Amendola caught all three targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 28-20 win over the Raiders. Amendola's 42 yards serve as his highest total of the season, and the 32-year-old still has yet to find the end zone. He serves mostly as a check-down target for Ryan Tannehill and doesn't seem to be in the mix for deep-ball targets. Amendola remains a mid-floor, low-ceiling play in PPR formats.
Amendola did not suffer a concussion during Miami's 20-12 victory over the Jets, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Amendola exited Sunday's game after receiving a hit from Jets safety Jamal Adams, but reportedly was not concussed. The 32-year-old has sustained at least three concussions in his NFL career. Amendola managed to log a team-high four catches for 32 yards Week 2, despite being sidelined for a significant amount of time.
