The hardest spot to fill on the roster? The No. 5 receiver position behind Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Chris Hogan and rookie Malcolm Mitchell.
A case can be made for Keshawn Martin (who signed a contract extension in January), Aaron Dobson (who is healthy), Chris Harper or DeAndre Carter. Or even Nate Washington.
The author didn't really say his opinion on who could emerge in that spot, but did say Carter and Harper can be placed on the practice squad while Dobson and Martin cannot. The author did say Carter is in the Edelman/Amendola mold which could provide some insurance since both are currently hurt.

Danny Amendola took a pay cut to stay a Patriot, so his job is likely safe and he has been said to be moving well after his offseason ankle and knee surgeries though his Week 1 status is still in question.
Competition, health, age, pick your poison as Amendola will most likely be eased into action following these injuries. His role could be in danger to guys like Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell.
2016 Bottom Line
Amendola should really be on your fantasy radar unless he can come back healthy and carve out a role in this offense. Could be tough sledding and an unreliable fantasy season for Amendola on an offense that is loaded with talent.
