Fantasy Update: Danny Amendola Has Practiced All Week


If you own New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola in fantasy football, it looks like you might be able to put him back in the lineup soon. He has practiced all week and likely has to go through one more concussion test before he is cleared to play on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. This could be the first time that Amendola and Rob Gronkowski play in the same  game.  That should take some of the pressure off of Amendola in the passing game.

When Amendola has been on the field for the Patriots, he has been a big focus for Tom Brady and the offense. He just has not been on the field enough for fantasy football’s liking. If he is going to be on the field, then you might as well put him in the lineup. How many other opportunities are you going to have to use him this year.

He should get a lot of balls thrown in his direction and the Patriots are looking to stomp on some team after losing to the Jets. The Dolphins have a decent defense, but Amendola and Gronk should see a bunch of action.
