Amendola caught four of his seven targets for 43 yards in Sunday's 26-6 win over the Jets. With fellow wideout Chris Hogan (shoulder) presumably on track to return to action in the playoffs, Amendola figures to see less snaps than either Brandin Cooks or Chris Hogan, but he'll still bring modest PPR utility to the table, in his role out of the slot. In terms of his fantasy upside in playoff formats, Amendola's value is hit-or-miss, given that his weekly target share will be game-flow dependent.
Amendola caught all three of his targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 37-16 win over the Bills. Sunday's win was largely powered by the team's run game, led by Dion Lewis, who rushed for 129 yards. For the second game in a row, Amendola didn't make much of a fantasy splash, and in his current role in the offense, he brings modest PPR utility to the table, with the slot man's weekly target share game-flow dependent.
Amendola caught two of his four targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Steelers. With Chris Hogan (shoulder) out Sunday, Amendola was on the field for 37 of the Patriots' 60 snaps on offense in Week 15, but the return of target-gobbling tight end Rob Gronkowski (nine catches on 13 targets) contributed to Amendola seeing less attention from QB Tom Brady than he did in Week 14, when the slot man hauled in six of nine targets for 76 yards. Looking ahead, Amendola figures to remain involved in the Patriots' passing attack next weekend against the Bills, but both Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks will continue to offer more fantasy upside.
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.
