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.

Amendola's status not made clear by Belichick

On Wednesday, Belichick was asked about wide receiver Danny Amendola, who is dealing with a concussion. In typical Belichick fashion, the head coach offered up some simple yet smirk-inducing responses as seen in the conversation with the media below, via Patriots media relations.

Q: Is Danny Amendola subject to the concussion protocol?

Bill Belichick: Every player has to go through medical clearance.

Q: But specifically concussion protocol, does he still have to go through that?

Bill Belichick: Yeah, sure, every player has to go through whatever the medical procedures are.

Q: So he hasn’t been cleared to practice yet?

Bill Belichick: I didn’t say that. I said every player has to go through the medical procedures.

Q: So has he been cleared to practice?

Bill Belichick: We’ll give our practice report after practice like we always do.

Pyro's take: As long as you are not truly trying to find out what Amendola's status is, this is pretty funny. Belichick is a master at dead pan, and giving no information. That is what happened to today.

Danny Amendola expected to return for week 5

There is optimism that wide receiver Danny Amendola could return after missing three games with a torn groin, a source told the Herald.

Amendola even sounded more chipper than usual yesterday after completing his third practice session of the week.

“Had a good day today,” said Amendola, whose travel bag included his pink cleats that he’ll wear during the NFL’s recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “Had a good practice. Ran around and made some plays and looking forward to Sunday, so we’ll see.”

Pyro's take: Finally we get some good news out of New England with all their injuries. Amendola was pegged by us to have a great season if he stayed healthy, so now that he is back it is time to show it. Tom Brady should be looking for him often in this match-up and if you have been sitting on Amendola all this time you better get him in your lineup this weekend.

Danny Amendola out for week 4

The Patriots left for Atlanta on Saturday and neither Gronkowski nor Amendola made the trip, meaning neither player will play in Sunday night's game, according to ESPN.com.

Pyro's take: Here we go again as we miss another week of Danny Amendola. This once again opens the door for Julian Edleman, Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins.

Danny Amendola to miss 2-6 weeks

The Patriots’ Danny Amendola was listed as inactive for last night’s Jets game and is now expected to miss two to six weeks of action, according to the NFL Network.

The wide receiver has been hampered by a lingering groin injury that he aggravated in Week 1 against the Bills.

Pyro's take: Damn you Amendola!!! This is always the worry with this receiver who just can't seem to stay healthy. He finally gets into a perfect situation in New England and with all the other injuries would have been in prime position to score big this season, but once again he lets an injury take him out. Amendola may be the most frustrating player in fantasy and he has just hurt 3 of my fantasy teams as well as many of yours. All we can do now is hope for a quick recovery and that when he does come back he is 100% healthy.

Danny Amendola most likely out for Thursday Night

Multiple reports make Amendola's chances of playing Thursday look bad. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Amendola is "almost certain" to miss Thursday. The Boston Herald notes that Amendola wasn't present through the walkthrough on Tuesday. That doesn't guarantee he won't play, but it's certainly not a good sign.

Tom Brady, for his part, wasn't talking about any specific injuries during media appearance on Tuesday.

"We'll see how that all sorts itself out," Brady said. "There's a lot to prepare for in a very short amount of time. We're cramming a lot in but that's what we have to do."

Pyro's take: This is a tough break for owners of Amendola, who is dealing with a groin strain, but the fact that he will get a full 2 weeks to recover and should be just fine for your lineup in week 3.

This is very good news for Julian Edleman who figures to play in Amendola's role and who is coming of a nice week 1 performance as well. This is also good for Kenbrell Thompkins, who had only 4 catches but 14 targets in week 1, as he should see a hefty amount of targets in this game as well.

Danny Amendola "sick" of talking about his injury label

Danny Amendola might have shown up on the New England Patriots' injury report as being limited (groin), which is something he’s been managing since playing 20 snaps in an Aug. 16 preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it shouldn’t affect his availability for Sunday’s season opener.

On Wednesday, Amendola echoed something he’s said in recent weeks: He’s champing at the bit to play in the regular season.

“I’m sick of talking about it, I just want to go play, to be honest with you,” he said. “I’m excited about getting out there. I’m just ready to go.”

Pyro's take: Danny Amendola is stepping into a great situation, as he looks to be Tom Brady's top target heading into the season. Amendola has been a player that has dealt with injuries throughout his short career and is fighting to get rid of that label. When healthy, the speedy Amendola creates mismatches all over the field. This will be evident in week 1, when Amendola and the Patriots will face the Buffalo Bills, a team that Tom Brady torches every time they play each other. Amendola is a great start in week 1 and will be a PPR machine with Brady as his quarterback this season.

Danny Amendola looked great, but is day to day

Danny Amendola was hit in the back of the head on his sixth and final reception of Friday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He left the field but returned two plays later. He was the intended target on what ended up being Brady’s final pass attempt of the night, a third-and-7 try.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said he was “day-to-day.”

Pyro's take: This is rough news for Amendola, as he seems to be a player that injuries follow, but his performance before the injury was quite encouraging.

Amendola had 6 catches for 71 yards including a 26-yard touchdown. Amendola looked like the favorite target of Tom Brady and they displayed some nice chemistry in the game.

Amendola will be a PPR stud this season, but this head injury may cause him to slip in drafts, which is a good thing, and really makes him a nice value on draft day. He is a top 20 receiver this year in fantasy.
