Week 14: vs Baltimore Ravens
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Tom Brady won his 201st career start last week (including the postseason), the most victories by a starting QB in NFL history - he's a winner with or without Rob Gronkowski (now on IR for the 2016 season due to a herniated disk in his back). No Gronkowski, no problem - New England 26, L.A. 10. Actually, though, Tom Brady had only one TD pass during the game (33/46 for 269 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, with zero sacks taken). Julian Edelman (12 targets for 8/101/0 receiving) and Malcolm Mitchell (10 for 8/82/0) both enjoyed double-digit targets, while Danny Amendola (four for 3/30/0) and Chris Hogan (five for 4/23/1) cleaned up behind the featured guys. Martellus Bennett disappointed with a mere four targets for 2/4/0 receiving - he's not getting a bounty of targets with Gronkowski out (at least, not yet). The Ravens crushed Miami 38-6 last week, so as you might expect Ryan Tannehill's numbers were ugly (29/40 for 215 net yards passing, one TD and three interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -11 yards). Two weeks ago Andy Dalton managed 26/48 for 261 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown (with three sacks for -22 yards, one a strip-sack for six points to Baltimore on the return). From Week 10 to Week 13 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 10 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Baltimore has averaged 17.6 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (ninth-least in the NFL); and 19.4 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (11th-least); with 8.2 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (13th-most). This looks like a tough matchup for Brady and company.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 11 vs SF (3 / 2 / 2 / 1 rec)
Amendola's biggest impact came on special this week in San Francisco. He logged a long punt return in the first quarter as well as recovering an onside kick with two minutes to play in the nearly-decided game. On offense, Amendola came wide open in the back of the end zone as Tom Brady make a spectacular floating touchdown pass with imminent pocket pressure fading to his left. Amendola's biggest upside remains if Julian Edelman were to miss time.
2016 Week 8 vs BUF (4 / 3 / 29 / 1 rec)
Once again playing a limited snap count, Amendola still made one of them count. On a goal to go play, Amendola caught a touchdown pass from Tom Brady, who deftly stepped up in the pocket under pressure to find Amendola open. Beyond that, his day was fairly quiet, though he did have a big kick return as well that set the Patriots up for a scoring drive.
2016 Week 4 vs BUF (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The only notable play for Danny Amendola was an overthrow by Jacoby Brissett. Other than that, he did not catch a pass.
2016 Week 3 vs HOU (2 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)
Because of game plan, Amendola wasn't heavily involved and didn't play many snaps on offense. This may be the case again if Brissett starts in Week 4, though Amendola hasn't seen a full snap count complement in any week thus far.
2016 Week 2 vs MIA (4 / 4 / 48 / 2 rec)
Danny Amendola was the red zone star of the day, catching two touchdown passes in the first half. His first was mostly due to Jimmy Garoppolo's ability to step up in the pocket facing pressure, while his second was a good move by Amendola to get open in the middle of the end zone. To his credit, on the first catch, Amendola moved around when he saw his quarterback under duress, improvising his route for the score. On the down side, he did lose a fumble, something he'll no doubt beat himself up over. It's also worth noting he was 4th on the receiver depth chart in terms of snaps played.
2016 Week 1 vs ARI (4 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec)
Amendola only played a handful of snaps, but made them count late in the game, as he helped convert two critical third downs on the Patriots' game winning drive. However, going forward, his game lines will be very inconsistent if his snap count is any indication.

Our View: That means Amendola could be shut down for the rest of the regular season. A high-ankle sprain can linger if not given enough time to heal. With Chris Hogan back in action, the Pats offense won't miss a beat without Amendola.
