Danny Amendola injury update: Game-time decision harms fantasy value

Scott Rovak-US PRESSWIRE

Fantasy owners will have to wait until game-time if they think they need to start Amendola. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams receiver Danny Amendola (foot) is going to be a game-time decision according to offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. Amendola has suffered a myriad of injuries over the last two years, appearing in just nine of a possible 27 games.

Unfortunate, since Amendola started to break out in 2010 and continued that success this season, though he's had a hard time staying healthy.

Fantasy Take: The 49ers are obviously a tough matchup for any offense, but especially against a receiver dealing with yet another injury. When healthy, Amendola is one of the top PPR receivers in the league, capable of ten catches at any time. It's too bad he's almost never healthy, it seems like.

It's best to have a safe bet to start at WR2 in case Amendola is inactive, and that seems like a very real possibility.
