Danny Amendola returns to practice on a limited basis: Fantasy implications

Scott Rovak-US PRESSWIRE

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola (shoulder) returned to practice on Wednesday on a limited basis. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola returned to practice on a limited basis, coach Jeff Fisher said on Wednesday. Amendola suffered a serious shoulder injury in Week 5 and has not played since.

Amendola remains the team's leading receiver despite missing the last two games. He dislocated his clavicle on Oct. 4 against the Arizona Cardinals and will likely miss several more games. The Rams face the New England Patriots on Sunday in London.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should expect to be without Amendola for a few more games even with his return to practice. He was starting to emerge as a reliable No. 2/3 receiver before the injury but it's unclear when he will be ready to return.

Brandon Gibson has seen recently seen increased work and Chris Givens has become a deep threat for the Rams, but neither should be considered more than flex plays at this point.
