Patriots QB Tom Brady talked Monday morning about how the team will replace WR Julian Edelman. "We have to find a different way to do it," Brady said. "I mean obviously with Danny [Amendola], I’ve had that [chemistry] with Danny. Danny has been such a great player for us. Hogs [Chris Hogan], he’s had a great camp. Brandin Cooks has done a great job. Malcolm [Mitchell], when he has been out there, I have a lot of trust in him. All the backs and tight ends, we’re just going to have to pick up the slack. The production has to come from a different place." Hogan is the best bet to finish 2nd among Pats WRs in targets. But Amendola, RBs James White, Rex Burkhead and Dion Lewis and TE Dwayne Allen could also see volume boosts. Edelman averaged a whopping 9.7 targets per game over the past 4 seasons, so there's a lot of fantasy production to go around here. We'll be keeping a close eye on what this passing game looks like early on this season.
The Texans are adding WR Danny Amendola on a $2.5 million, 1-year contract, according to agent Erik Burkhardt. It's hard to react to any WR addition in Houston with anything more than a shrug or a head shake at this point. If no one's excited about Brandin Cooks as the lead receiver in Houston, then it's difficult to envision Amendola becoming a real fantasy factor.
Lions WR Danny Amendola was knocked out of Sunday's win over Washington with a hip injury. We'll look for an update on the severity.
Lions WR Danny Amendola (chest) is inactive for today’s game against the Chiefs. TE T.J. Hockenson might be the biggest beneficiary of Amendola’s absence. WRs Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones could also pick up a few extra targets.
Lions WR Danny Amendola (chest) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chiefs after only putting in a limited practice on Friday. Amendola shouldn’t be in your fantasy plans, but his absence would open up a few extra targets for Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and T.J. Hockenson.
The Lions signed WR Danny Amendola to a 1-year, $4.5 million deal. The 33-year-old has caught 120 balls over the past 2 seasons -- 1 with New England, 1 with Miami -- but totaled just 1,234 yards and 3 TDs. He figures to step in as Detroit's slot receiver behind Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. With run-loving OC Darrell Bevell now calling the shots, it's tough to imagine Amendola seeing enough targets to be a 2019 fantasy factor.
