Pats WR Danny Amendola's playing time down

Monday, September 26, 2016, 8:26am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Through three regular-season games, the snaps played by New England Patriots wide receivers have provided early-season insight on how the coaching staff views the group.

Chris Hogan -- 175 of 215
Julian Edelman -- 169 of 215
Malcolm Mitchell -- 87 of 215
Danny Amendola -- 51 of 215

Fantasy Impact:

It's notable that Hogan is leading the way and Edelman is trailing by a significant amount. The story said Amendola's time is down but his impact hasn't been significant with a couple of key third down catches to go along with two touchdowns catches. The story added Amendola usually plays in three-WR sets but sometimes the team opts to have Hogan, Edelman and Mitchell together instead. Keep in mind, Amendola missed all of training camp so it's possible the numbers even out a bit going forward.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
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.

Fantasy Downside
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.
