From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): Amendola is just a role player in New England now, and a small one at that - no pun intended. He can be dropped - at least as long as Julian Edelman is healthy.

Week 3: vs Oakland Raiders

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Tom Brady is currently the 26th-ranked fantasy quarterback in the land, with 44/78 for 398 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown. Julian Edelman (15 for 12/176/1) and Rob Gronkowski (17 targets for 8/72/1 receiving) are his main men in the passing game, though Gronkowski is still rusty and working his way back into shape as you can see from his sub-.500 reception percentage right now. The Raiders' pass D ranks second in the NFL through two games (164.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with three passing scores allowed and one interception so far) - Oakland's pass D doesn't get tested much as their rush D is dead last in the NFL allowing an average of 200 yards rushing per game. Ryan Fitzpatrick wasn't sacked at all last week, while throwing 14/19 for 139 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions at the Black Hole. This looks like a neutral matchup for Brady and company as New England may not need to throw the ball much this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs MIA (5 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)

Danny Amendola was an afterthought in the Patriots passing game. He saw 4 targets, and none were down the field. His target count may be diminished going forward once Aaron Dobson and Rob Gronkowski return to full health, so he's not fantasy rosterable at this point in time.

2014 Week 2 vs MIN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

While Tom Brady only threw the ball 22 times, Danny Amendola was only targeted once. It would have gone for a big gain, but there was an offensive penalty on the play. At this point, Amendola is an afterthought in the Patriots passing game.
