The Patriots have listed him on the injury report all season for his groin injury. Amendola suffered an injury to his groin in the preseason and has aggravated it all season. His stats on the season are underwhelming to say the least, totaling 29 receptions, 341 yards and one score.
The good news is that this might be the healthiest he's been since Week 1. There was no report of an additional injury and he should be able to play without restrictions.
Fantasy impact: The Patriots seem like a type of team that will want to get Amendola involved. Tom Brady won't want to turn the ball over, so he might be more inclined to use intermediate routes. If you have Amendola in a PPR league, he should be in all lineups. As for standard leagues, he's still a strong WR2 and has a lot of room for upside.
