|You could easily make the argument that the beginning of the Rams 2011 offensive collapse began when Amendola was lost for the season in Week 1 with an elbow injury. Operating out of the slot in 2010, Amendola was the teamís most productive receiver, catching 85 passes for 685 yards and three touchdowns. With Amendola out, the Rams lost their best chain moving option and several players tried unsuccessfully to operate out of the slot as his replacement. Amendola is ready to roll in 2012 and with the Rams receiver depth chart loaded with unproven young players and journeyman veterans, he should be in line for plenty of work this coming season. He is clearly a poor manís version of Wes Welker but without the 100-reception upside. Since Amendola isnít as quick and shifty as Welker, he isnít as solid of an option in the red zone and it doesnít help that the Rams as a team donít spend much time there. He is, however, quarterback Sam Bradfordís go-to receiver, catching 69.1% of his targets in 2010. Amendola rates as a WR4 in standard scoring leagues and as a WR3 in PPR leagues.

Pats thin at wide receiver

FF Today's Take: While the Patriots haven't made anything official, multiple reports suggest Amendola did not travel with the team to Denver. His loss will be a big blow to an already depleted receiving corps. Brandon LaFell and Chris Harper are the healthiest receivers of the group. Keshawn Martin (hamstring) is listed as Questionable.
| Danny Amendola expected to play -- Fri Nov 27 4:45 pm --|
WR listed as questionable
|New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola practiced on Friday, according to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe. Amendola also got in a limited session on Thursday, indicating that the Patriots are preparing to suit him up for the Week 12 matchup with the Denver Broncos. The Patriots' slot receiver was featured heavily in the offense before exiting Week 11's victory over the Bills with a sprained knee. However, it appears that Amendola is not in danger of being kept out of action on Sunday. (SB Nation)|
FF Today's Take: Amendola is a must-start this weekend as Tom Brady's second-best receiving option after Rob Gronkowski. The diminutive receiver is in line for his third straight week with more than 10 targets.
| Edelman to have surgery on Monday -- Sun Nov 15 9:52 pm --|
Broken bone in foot

FF Today's Take: It's been reported that Edelman broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot which is a similar injury that Dez Bryant suffered earlier this season. Bryant missed 7 weeks. In all likelihood, Edeleman's regular season is over. Danny Amendola should see increased work and should be a high waiver wire priority in Week 11.
