He simply can't shake this groin issue. Amendola missed three games so far this year and at this rate, he's going to miss some more. The 27-year-old wideout had dealt with groin issues this preseason and has been on the sidelines for much of his career.
If it wasn't for the injuries, Amendola had a shot to compete for the reception crown this year. He caught 10 balls in Week 1 and even missed time in that game with his troublesome groin issue.
Fantasy impact: His owners can't be happy about the two-catch outing for zero yards against the porous Saints D in Week 6. This week they'll have a decision on their hands, since the Patriots used a lot of slot balls in their Week 2 game, so the decision to play him probably isn't clear yet. He's more of a high-upside WR2 in PPR leagues for now. Julian Edelman is a nice player to stash.
