Amendola questionable for Week 4 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

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.

The Dolphins have released WR Danny Amendola. The 33-year-old caught 59 balls for 575 yards and 1 TD in his lone season in Miami. Amendola is still a reliable depth guy, but his days as a fantasy asset are over. With WR DeVante Parker also expected to be let go, the Fins are down to Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant atop the depth chart. We'll see what they add over the next few months.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He’s a low-end PPR option.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. New England has struggled against slot receivers this season, but Amendola would be a risky Week 14 fantasy play at less than 100%.
