Danny Amendola WR NE 1 Month

Amendola caught 5-of-7 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-24 Super Bowl win over the Seahawks.

After posting a modest 27-200-1 receiving line on 44 targets in 16 regular-season games, Amendola surprisingly played a huge role in New England's run to the Super Bowl. It helped that the team went pass-heavy in games against the Seahawks and Ravens, as Amendola typically only sees the field in three and four-wide sets. A few weeks ago, he looked like a strong candidate to be released this offseason, but that now seems somewhat less likely, though not out of the question. The Patriots can save $2.1 million against the 2015 cap by cutting Amendola before June 1, or they can save $4.5 million by designating him as a post-June 1 cut, according to overthecap.com. If Amendola returns, he'll presumably do so as the No. 3 wide receiver, behind Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell.

Amendola had five catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 35-31 playoff win over the Ravens.

After a quiet season, Amendola exploded when the Patriots needed him most, tying the game with a 15-yard score in the second quarter and pulling the game to another tie late in the third with a trick play touchdown reception from Julian Edelman. Amendola and the Patriots will host either the Broncos or Colts next weekend.

Amendola caught four passes for 24 yards on a team-high seven targets in Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Bills.

With Julian Edelman out for the second game in a row, Amendola continued to see extra snaps on Sunday. Once the playoffs start, however, Amendola figures to once again serve as the Patriots' No. 3 wideout behind Edelman and Brandon LaFell.

Amendola caught eight passes for 63 yards on 11 targets in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Jets.

Amendola filled the void created by the absence of Julian Edelman (concussion) on Sunday, with his Week 17 prospects directly tied to Edelman's availability next weekend.

With Julian Edelman ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Amendola is a candidate to see added looks in the Patriots' Week 16 offense, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

With Edelman out, the report also suggests that fellow wideout Brian Tyms and tight end Tim Wright could see added looks Sunday, but for those scrambling to replace Edelman, Amendola -- who has been serving as the Patriots' No. 3 WR -- looks like the player to target.

Amendola was on the field for a season-low 12 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Packers, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

For the second straight game, he did not record a catch, and as long as both Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell are healthy enough to play, Amendola is off the fantasy radar.

Amendola was on the field for 15-of-81 snaps on offense in Sunday's 34-9 win over the Lions, ESPN.com reports.

Amendola did not catch a pass in the contest, though he did contribute an 81-yard kickoff return that set up a touchdown in the second quarter. The 15 snaps were a season-low for Amendola, with the team using plenty of two-TE sets on Sunday. In any case, Amendola remains decidedly behind Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell in the Patriots' wideout pecking order.
