|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.
| Malcolm Mitchell expected to be inactive|
Pats WR listed as questionable

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.
| Chris Hogan, Gronk out for New England|
Pats down two receivers

|The Patriots have ruled TE Rob Gronkowski and WR Chris Hogan (back) out for Sunday's game against the 49ers. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We expected Gronk to be sidelined but Hogan's absence comes as a bit of a surprise. Expect Danny Amendola to see more action at wide receiver, but he'll be nothing more than a dart throw given the Patriots tendency to spread the ball around. Hogan was limited in practice this week with a back injury.
