The Boston Globe insists Danny Amendola's roster spot could be in danger.

Our boy seems to be on the outs of the Patriots' plans and rightfully so. Hate this cat.. drafted him so high :(


At least once he leaves NE I won't overdraft him.. even though I'll probably still take him if he slips late ^_^

I back the realest and original Polanco :-)

If this is really true, then Edelman will be a top-20 WR.

You only have yourself to blame if you drafted this guy. Might as well have paired him with McFadden and Harvin.

Would be interesting to see where he went if NE did indeed cut him lose. I was fine with drafting him before last year, because I could tolerate his injuries at such a low price. No way I was drafting him as early as he was going last year, though.

Edelman really just showed him up, and finally stayed healthy himself. Edelman is the projected slot maven in 2014, but nothing is for sure with Belichik.

He'd be a good #2 WR in Detroit

Believe me, I felt the wrath of Brittle Jointsendola this year. With that said, wasn't his only injury the groin that he aggravated in Week 1? I believe he had a bad year because that never fully healed. If he stays in NE, I would definitely be willing to draft him in a later round, as I think he can be had for very cheap with Edelman in the mix. I definitely think he has bounce back potential, and would be willing to roster him again (unlike a guy like McFadden).

He also had the concussion that sidelined him for 2 games right after he returned from the groin injury.  And then he only got targeted when both the rookie WRs were out in the game against Miami.

Yep.  This guy was on my I'll draft him if he's there in like round 10 list.  People kept praising him, saying he'd be just like, if not, better than Welker.  Everyone was projecting what a full season would be like.  But I'm sure these are the same people who draft McFadden and Matthews high every year as well.

Amendolas injury proneness has gotten so bad that no matter where he goes, I'd only be able to draft him post 7th round so he could be a bench play for me. He just hasn't proven that he has an NFL body. I'm tired of the "upside" and "potential" in Amendola, it would not be good to shoe this guy in as a starter in 2014. Very attractive bench play, that's about it, and a lot of factors could keep his cost at a starting price.

Am I crazy to think Amendollar could be a very nice value pick this year?

He never was "quite right" last year, I could see him being a big difference maker for maybe 10 games this year. He will definitely miss a few games.

A healthy 2nd year Dobson on one side, Amendola on the other, Edelman in the slot. Could be nasty.

I think stonehands LaFell will be relegated to blocking and the underneath stuff. James Jones would have been a much better signing for roughly the same pricetag.

I could see him being decent in PPR but he's no lock to be anything more than a low #3 fantasy WR. Lots of mouths to feed still but I'm hoping to figure who are the top targets to Brady. I could see Dobson breaking our over Danny too

Never again is right. Even if he's available in one of the later rounds, I'd rather have someone with the same risk and much higher upside. If this was still year where he had the opportunity to be the possession guy that Welker was for the Pats, maybe. But Edelman has clearly taken up the mantle as Brady's reliable short pass PPR guy, so there's not much upside to Amendola even if he somehow manages to stay healthy.

If he falls far enough I'll take him. At this point I don't even know what 'far enough' is though. He's a heartbreaker

For fantasy purposes, he's an unreliable scrub... someone best used as a throw in on the back-end of a trade.
You can really only draft him to be a bye week replacement... and then you have to hope he can make it to the bye weeks.
He's an injury prone Patriot... good luck ever getting a reliable read on his health read week in and week out...

How many other guys are going to be available in the later rounds that have much higher upside than Amendola?  Edelman just got paid and he wasn't exactly one to avoid injuries prior to last season.  Not saying or assuming Edelman's going to get hurt and Amendola's going to stay healthy but if you can get Amendola with a last rd pick, I'd argue that he most likely has as much or more upside than anyone else you could take there.  If you have to use a middle rd pick on Amendola, than it's not worth it with Edelman back and the other receiving options in NE.

I'd rather take other WRs who might become a big part of their offense, like a Kenny Stills or Marvin Jones kind of guy who had a few good weeks last year and might get a chance to prove themselves this year.
