Danny Amendola out of walking boot, back at practice: Fantasy implications

David Welker

Danny Amendola is out of a walking boot, and back at practice participating on a limited basis for the Rams. We break down the fantasy implications.

Danny Amendola is no long wearing a walking boot, and was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday for the St. Louis Rams, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Amendola is dealing with a nagging foot injury he suffered in Week 11 against the New York Jets.

There is no word yet on his status for Week 14 against the Buffalo Bills, though the fact that Amendola is participating in drills with the team should create some optimism. He is a heavily-targeted weapon within the offense when healthy. Amendola had a season-high 15 receptions for 160 yards and a touchdown in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Amendola has hit double-digit targets in four out of the eight games he has played, and if he starts Sunday he will be worth immediate starting consideration at the Flex spot. He could be a solid WR2 in PPR leagues. His health is a big if, however. Be sure to monitor reports out of Rams practice closely this week.
