Danny Amendola injury update: Cleared from concussion, still a risky fantasy play

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Danny Amendola is questionable for the game against the Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots receiver Danny Amendola is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins due to a groin injury and concussion issues. He was limited in practice and is expected to be a game-time decision.

Usually, when a player is limited all week with the Patriots, they're going to play. It's a little different with Amendola, considering how frequently he has been hurt. His groin injury has cost him a few games and his concussion from two weeks ago kept him out of action last week.

His numbers have not been impressive due to the injuries, totaling just 16 catches and 159 yards with no TDs in three games.

This week, the Patriots have their second divisional game in a row as they take on the Dolphins at home. After last week's divisional loss to the New York Jets, the team is likely going to want to have their primary slot guy.

Fantasy impact: If he had no concerns, DA would be one of the better PPR plays. Not only is he a risky option with his questionable status, but the possibility of an aggravation is a legitimate reason to knock him down. He's more of a WR3 with big upside.
