Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 7 vs MIN (11 / 8 / 105 / 0 rec)

Danny Amendola had a good game after a disappointing game last week. Amendola worked primarily in the short area of the field and was seemingly unconverable for stretches. Amendola was able to break two bigger gains with runs after the catch and added a deep crossing route reception. Amendola creates easy throws for Matthew Stafford, especially in chain moving situations. He will face the Giants next week.

2019 Week 3 vs PHI (5 / 4 / 37 / 0 rec)

Danny Amendola had a quiet fantasy game against the Eagles on Sunday. He was involved early on the first series with a screen but was quiet through the rest of the first half. He had a 22-yard reception on a crosser route and later had a good third down conversion along the sideline late in the game. Amendola could see higher volume next week against the Chiefs.

2019 Week 2 vs LAC (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

After a big week one, Danny Amendola dropped his only target on a third down pass. Amendola will look to bounce back against Philadelphia in week three.

2019 Week 1 vs ARI (13 / 7 / 104 / 1 rec)

Danny Amendola had a strong debut with the Detroit Lions in week one against the Arizona Cardinals. He was targeted frequently and involved early in the offense. He played both the slot and outside, getting easy separation on an out route while playing the perimeter. He was shifty in his movements in the short area. Amendola did score a long touchdown on a blown defensive coverage but added a critical mistake on the final drive of overtime where he did not get out of bounds, forcing the clock to run out and essentially guaranteeing a tie. Amendola has intrigue in a potentially high scoring game in week two against the Chargers.

Our View: The game is on Monday night, so the veteran receiver has an extra day to heal. The last time he was on the field (Week 3), Amendola had just four catches for 37 yards. Fantasy GMs have better options than the Lions No. 3 receiver.
