Summary

Amendola is the favorite to start in the slot for the Lions after signing a one-year deal in the offseason. He is 33-years old and has lost a step but was still fairly productive in Miami last season (59-575-1). His 9.7 yards per catch last season matches his career average. Amendola has also averaged just 2.0 touchdowns per season in his 10-year career. While he could again post 50+ touches, it is hard to see much fantasy upside given the lack of big-play ability and red zone usage. (May 23)

Lions | Week 11 injury report for Detroit (Fri Nov 15, 04:12 PM) - Detroit Lions DT Da'Shawn Hand (ankle), QB Matthew Stafford (hip, back) and OT Ricky Wagner (concussion) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys. DT Damon Harrison (groin, rest), P Sam Martin (abdomen), DE Romeo Okwara (groin) and DB Tracy Walker (knee) were limited in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and are listed as questionable. RB Ty Johnson (concussion) was upgraded to a full practice Friday and is also listed as questionable. WR Danny Amendola (hand), DT John Atkins (wrist), DT Mike Daniels (foot), S Will Harris (quad), S Miles Killebrew (concussion), DT A'Shawn Robinson (ankle, thumb) and C Darius Slay (neck) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Our View: Wagner being out will hurt a Lions offense already without its starting quarterback against one of the best pass rush units in the league.
