|Danny Amedola was signed by the Patriots immediately following Wes Welker’s signing with the Denver Broncos and many fantasy footballers not only saw Amendola as a replacement for Welker but also felt that he was a younger and faster version of the man known as “the slot machine”. Unfortunately for Amendola, he suffered a serious tear of the groin during the opening week of 2013 and was never able to unseat Julian Edelman for that important slot role. Amendola offers a similar skill set to Edelman so the team would likely prefer another wide receiver to step up and claim a starting role but as of right now it looks like Amendola should get first crack. Amendola has a reputation of being “injury prone” which generally is an unfair label, but it’s hard to argue against him having earned it. Fantasy owners are likely better off looking elsewhere, as Amendola’s upside is capped if he’s not a high volume pass catcher since he lacks big play ability. A large target number is not very likely being the fourth option in the passing game (at best) behind Edelman, Rob Gronkowski and Dion Lewis.

A healthy scratch, other areas of need

|Barring an unexpected change, I'm told Patriots wide receiver Michael Floyd will be inactive for Super Bowl LI as the team doesn't have the luxury to carry five players at the position on the 46-man game-day roster. It needs the spots for other areas, such as special teams and goal-line situations. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The Patriots will roll with Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell at the wide receiver position.

Pats WR listed as questionable

|Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell, listed as questionable for tonight's Divisional Playoff with knee injury, will not play vs Texans, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Mitchell's knee injury will likely land him on the inactive list. Expect Michael Floyd and Danny Amendola to be active and fill the secondary receiver roles for the Patriots. Neither will be viable fantasy options.
