Amendola Restructures Contract, LE$$ MONEY MO RINGS

Pyro's take: Amendola was likely hit by BB with the "Take less or were cutting you" Amendola chose to stay on the reigning Super Bowl Champion Patriots despite adding Cooks.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots WR core stays deep, this move implies that the Pats are moving money around to be able to afford a high draft pick (to trade for) or Richard Sherman from the Seahawks.

Patritos WRs Limited in PRactice all week

Pyro's take: Mitchell, Hogan, and Amendola were only able to log partial practices all week.

Fantasy goo: While I like Mitchell the best, he lead all Patriots WRs with red zone targets in December logging 12, missing practice is a concern. I will own maybe 10% Mitchell, maybe have 5% Hogan and that is it of these three.

Pats w/o Amendola on Mondday Night

Pyro's take: As expected, the Patriots will be without Amendola.

Fantasy Goo: Malcolm Mitchell has been a great play as of late. That is even more true now. The Pats face the Ravens. Because Baltimore is so tough to run against, teams take their chances through the air. That has been paying off lately. The Ravens have allowed 4 TDs to WRs in the last three weeks.

Guess Who's Back? Brady’s Back, Back Again And He Doesn't Skip A Beat As He Gets The Patriots Offense Into High Gear

Pyro's take: Tom Brady completed 28-of-40 passes for 406 yards and three touchdowns in New England's Week 5 win over the Browns.

Fantasy Goo: Brady showed no rust in his return and was in sync with the offense. The veteran QB was able to spread the ball around to multiple receivers, completing passes to seven different players. He looks like he is in midseason form.

Rob Gronkowski caught 5-of-7 targets for 109 yards. Although he did not score, he did provide his owners with confidence that the real Gronk is back and ready to roll for the remainder of the 2016 season.

Martellus Bennett caught 6-of-8 targets for 67 yards and three TD's. The Black Unicorn wasted no time showing Brady he is here in New England to produce. Bennett made the most of each target scoring three touchdowns on six receptions. Adding yet another option in this high powered offense look for Bennett to continue to provide another option for fantasy owners weekly.

Chris Hogan caught 4-of-5 targets for 114 yards. Seven-Eleven lead the Patriots in yardage on Sunday despite only getting five targets. It looks like he may become Tom's deep ball threat in the offense and the two were able to connect on two long passes of 43 and 63 yards. If the connection can continue then he is someone to target in fantasy leagues.

Julian Edelman caught five of 10 passes for 35 yards. Expect the double-digit targets to continue for Edelman as he is Brady's favorite receiver and the production should increase as well.

James White rushed five times for 26 yards and added four receptions for 63 additional yards. White was utilized as the third-down back for the Patriots this role has extra value when Tom Brady is QB as he likes to use his running backs in the passing game and there will be weeks that White may lead the team in targets coming out of the backfield it is safe to say he should have solid value in PPR formats.

Danny Amendola caught 2-of-2 targets for 11 yards he is listed as the WR3 but falls behind fellow receivers Julain Edelman and Chris Hogan as well as tight ends Martellus Bennett and Rob Gronkowski in the pecking order for targets. There is not much to go around for Amendola and he is not a fantasy option unless an injury occurs.

LeGarrette Blount rushed for 37 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries.An early touchdown helped fantasy owners. Expect a similiar workload for Blount going forward and he will be the goal line back which will help to increase his value.

Patriots receiver unlikely ready for beginning of season

Amendola underwent two procedures

Pyro's take: Amendola underwent two procedures this offseason on his left knee and ankle. The Boston Herald reported the Patriots "hope" Amendola will be ready for training camp. However, it's uncertain at this time whether he'll even be ready for the beginning of the regular season.

Amendola, 30, had 65 receptions for 648 yards and three touchdowns in 2015. He appeared in 14 games and became a focal point in the offense when Julian Edelman missed seven games due to injury.

Danny Amendola to return next season.


Pyro's take: Amendola, $5M of his cap hit is salary. He is coming off his best season in New England (65 catches, 648 yards and three TDs) and was terrific in the postseason in 2014. Even though he hasn’t produced stats commensurate with his paycheck all the way through, he has been a tremendously valuable player. But $5M is a little aggressive, especially when it’s exactly twice what Julian Edelman will make in 2016 salary. A release of Amendola – which I wouldn’t anticipate – would save $3.5M against the cap.

Amendola and Edelman Both Out; Edelman QUESTIONABLE


Pyro's take: The two lead WRs are both out for Week 16. Even LaFell is listed as questionable bumping up Martin who is 4th on the depth chart as well as newly acquired Hankerson, who is listed as 5th. Thus both Hankerson and Martin are essentially starters

Danny A Listed as Questionable, but Fully Expected to Play


Pyro's take: Amendola is officially listed as Questionable. But, according to all reports, he should be good to go in the Sunday night game in Week 14.

Looks Good to Go in Week 13


Pyro's take: Ammendola looks to suite up in Wekk 13. Danny could be in line for a big day as Gronk is out and of course Edelman. Plus, the Pats have the highest implied team point total accodring to Vegas. Coming off their only defeat of the season thus far, I think Wild Billd could slam the peddle down on this one as they may look to make a point. Billy might use this as his statment "Chip Who?"

12/06/15, 10:19 AM CST by PyromaniacMo

Danny Amendola (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.


Pyro's take: He should make the start on Sunday and getting plenty of targets his way, especially with Gronk out.

Jason Cole reports the Patriots expect Danny Amendola (knee) to return Week 13 against the Eagles.


Pyro's take: Danny Amendola just missed the game on Sunday against the Broncos, which means he should be good-to-go on Sunday after another week of rest.

Amendola is a NO GO in Week 12


Pyro's take: Danny Amendola did not make the trip.Park him on your bench, as you know he can still ehlp you in your playoffs, but make sure you get him out of all redraft amnd DFS lineuips today. LaFell and Gronkl should clearly see an uptick.

11/29/15, 07:12 AM CST by PyromaniacMo

Double check Danny Amendola as he may be out for Sunday


Pyro's take: The Patriots are planning for the strong possibility of being without wide receiver Danny Amendola (knee) on Sunday against the Broncos, so fantasy owners should do the same. Keep an eye on the health of receiver Keshawn Martin by Saturday, as he could be a sleeper option for those looking to fill a receiver void. He's missed the past five games with a hamstring injury but Tom Brady likes him. At this point, Brandon LaFell and Chris Harper are the only healthy receivers. -- Mike Reiss

Injuries could spark Danny Amendola's statistics


Pyro's take: With two of the top Patriots fantasy options now injured (RB Dion Lewis, WR Julian Edelman), it puts more focus on TE Rob Gronkowski and WRs Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola as Tom Brady’s top options. Something to consider for this week: Amendola has had some of the biggest games of his Patriots career against the Bills, who visit the Patriots on Monday night. There should also be a more concerted effort to get the running game going compared to the teams' Week 2 matchup, so LeGarrette Blount should see a higher snap total than the seven he saw earlier in the season against Buffalo. -- Mike Reiss

Opportunities Abound for the Pats

oh yeah

Pyro's take: When Dion Lewis and Julian Edelmen packed it in for the 2015 season, they took 39% of team receptions with them. Well, who is going to fill that space? Clearly everyone is looking to Amendola, but I would still rather have LaFell. Don't get me wrong, Amendola is a fantastic play, but I would take LaFell for cetain in standard. In full PPR, I might lean Amendola. But either way, I like both guys moving forward. The Patriots seem to pull at least a 26 implied point total almost every single week from Vegas. That is the kind of offesnse to latch on to. Heck, give me both guys. In fact, I do start Gronk and LaFell in one of my leagues. The Pats offense far outweighs the .07% negative correlation that starting similarly positioned guys on the same team has. Thanks to 4for4's Chris Raybon for that stat.

Danny Amendola caught 10-of-11 targets for 79 yards


Pyro's take: Get used to hearing Danny Amendola's name all over again. He caught 10 passes for 79-yards, he just couldnt find the end zone. With Edelman out for awhile and Dion Lewis done for the season, Amendola becomes project waiver wire find.

Amendola looking to make amends in 2014

Amendola is out of the spotlight, but he is still on the spot. He is the highest-paid receiver on a team that has significant questions about its receiving corps. If the Patriots are going to provide quarterback Tom Brady with a better arsenal of pass receiving options than last season, Amendola’s comfort level and production have to go up in year two or the team could send him on a go route after it.

“I feel comfortable,” Amendola said. “It’s different. A year under your belt in a new system, in a new place, in a new organization, it’s kind of like when a rookie comes in for the first time and tries to learn the offense. It might be difficult at times, but that second year that learning curve is much less. I feel very comfortable right now. I’m just trying to come out here and work.”

The Patriots are hoping Amendola catches on faster this year.

His debut season with the Patriots was framed by a serious groin injury and an inability to get into Brady’s circle of trust. The fast-talking, quick-footed Texan hurt his groin in the preseason and then tore it completely in the season-opener against Buffalo, soldiering on to catch 10 passes for 104 yards in that game.

Pyro's take: Amendola is on his last legs with the Patriots, and has fallen well down wide receiver rankings this summer. Injury is still the biggest concern for Amendola, who has only played in 24 games the last three seasons.

If Danny can stay healthy, and hold onto the football, he will have a chance to have a bounce back season. The other major obstacle for Amendola is the emergence of Julian Edleman. Edleman has the trust of Brady, and is a hard worker who is not going to give anything up easy. I would target Amendola in the later rounds of your draft, especially if you are in a PPR league. High risk/reward with Danny.

Patriots could trade or cut Amendola

Veteran NFL scribe Dan Pompei reports that the Patriots have “floated” wide receiver Danny Amendola’s name in trade discussions and speculates that he could be cut if a deal is not made.

Still, making a move would not be cheap. Trading Amendola before June 2 would cost the Patriots an additional $645,000 in 2014, though his cap number would go from $5.75 million to zero in 2015, according to PatsCap.com.

There are several scenarios involved with cutting Amendola, though this one spelled out by PatsCap.com seems to make the most sense:

Cut Danny Amendola before 4PM March 11 and make him a June 2 designation.

That means the Pats would carry his $3 million salary and his $375,000 roster bonus on their books until June 2nd. On June 2nd he would be released. His 2014 cap number would then drop from $4.575m to $1.2million ($1.2 million signing bonus proration) – net cap savings in 2014 of around $2.88 million.

His 2015 cap number would go from $5.575 million to $3.6 million.

Pyro's take: Oh Danny Boy, a cut or trade is calling.

Amendola was a total underachiever, and once again an injury risk in 2013. The Patriots have a decision to make with Julian Edelman, as it became clear towards the end of 2013 that Tom Brady prefers him over Awomandola.

The best case scenario for the Patriots would be to trade Danny Boy in order to get his contract totally off their books in 2015, as well as keep more continuity in their offense by re-signing Edelman.

In the end, the Patriots are probably going to keep him for this season, but he will remain on the hot seat. If the Pats do resign Edelman, there is no reason to keep Amendola. New England has three young talented receivers who are entering their second year: Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce.

Amendola looking to end the Welker discussion this week

Amendola was either supposed to be the second coming of Welker or an injury-prone “wuss” who couldn’t finish a season. It turns out neither party was correct.

It would have been impossible for Amendola to live up to his hype or his predecessor. The slot receiver has followed in Welker’s footsteps his entire career from attending Texas Tech, to going undrafted, to signing with the Patriots. Now, Amendola will be compared to Welker once again as the Patriots face the Broncos on Sunday in the AFC Championship Game.

Just because Amendola didn’t turn out to be Welker 2.0 doesn’t mean his regular season was a disappointment, though. Amendola displayed impressive toughness, missing just one game with a concussion and playing through a painful groin injury. Amendola originally suffered the groin ailment in the preseason. He had healed by the regular season but the injury worsened before halftime in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills when he ripped the groin muscle completely off the bone.

Amendola wound up with 54 catches for 633 yards and two touchdowns during the regular season. He added three catches for 77 yards in the Patriots’ divisional-round playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady offered up some lofty praise for Amendola on Thursday.

“Danny’s had a great season,” Brady said glowingly. “He’s showed me really what he’s all about. He’s fought through a lot of adversity earlier in the year and is really playing his best football. He’s done a great job. He’s been in and out of different roles in the whole offense and different positions, different formations. He’s had to learn a lot of different spots. He’s willing to do whatever it takes. He’s doing great and I love being out there with him.”

Pyro's take: Amendola has been walking in Wes Welker's footsteps since he enrolled at Texas Tech. This season he was supposed to step in the role vacated by Welker, and, in the eyes of many, was supposed to be the next coming of Wes.

Well, as it turned out it looks like Julian Edelman did a better job at filling that role. Amendola still had some success in the offense, just not what he, the Patriots or anyone in fantasy expected from him. That can all be put to bed with a great showing in the AFC Championship game.

These are the types of games where players who are not necessarily the best on their team step up to make the difference. With how well Edelman has been playing it could be easy for defenses to forget about Amendola. Danny will look to make this be his statement game of the season, and help New England fans to move on from Wes Welker envy.
