Danny Amendola injury update: Will reportedly play, fantasy value could return

Gregory Shamus

After missing two weeks, the Rams' most productive receiver could return at the most important time. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola (foot) is set to play on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, according to Chris Mortenson on ESPN. Amendola has missed each of the last two games and was limited in practice this week, but will return to play in his ninth game of the season at a very opportune time.

The Rams are 3-1-1 in their last five games and are still clinging to playoff hopes. Amendola has 51 catches for 576 yards in eight games.

Fantasy Take: The Vikings are a below-average pass defense, allowing 21 touchdowns and recording nine interceptions this season. Amendola is Sam Bradford's favorite target and should make a nice WR3 or Flex play.
