Last Call for Sleepers

By Matt Schauf 7:08am EDT 8/29/18


Danny Amendola, WR, Dolphins

With less than 2 weeks before the start of the regular season, DeVante Parker is not even allowed to catch footballs yet -- following his mid-August finger fracture. That follows yet another disappointing camp for the former 1st-round pick.

Parker's situation shoves the door wide open for his teammates to claim available targets and deliver big upside on modest draft prices. We've already highlighted Kenny Stills, whom you can still get in mid-to-late WR4 territory for some reason.

But Amendola has also not seen the drastic rise in ADP that seemed likely to follow as buzz followed him from spring workouts into training camp. In their 2 shared preseason contests, Amendola has played 29 snaps to Stills' 35. That included the opener, with Parker around as well. Amendola drew 6 targets to Stills' 5 in those 2 games.

We're obviously not projecting a team target leader off that small sample, but leading the team in that category resides within Amendola's range of possible outcomes. And when you're talking about a going going outside the top 70 at WR, that's attractive PPR upside -- regardless of the offense's quality.

And just in case you forgot, this is a team that watched Jarvis Landry take with him 166, 131 and 161 targets from the past 3 years.
