Danny Amendola injury update: WR probable, will play for fantasy owners

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Patriots wide receiver is listed as probable and will play in Week 14. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin) is listed as probable and will play in the team's Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns. Amendola practiced in full throughout the week and isn't in any danger of missing Sunday's game.

Fantasy Impact: Amendola's first season with the Patriots has left much to be desired for fantasy owners. He has missed four games due to injury and has only caught one touchdown on the year which came back in Week 9. While he appears to finally be healthy, it hasn't yet translated into the Wes Welker-type production that owners envisioned when they drafted him.

He has also been losing some snaps to Julian Edelman lately, and the story is likely to continue as Edelman has been highly productive in recent weeks. His targets should remain steady if the questionable Kenbrell Thompkins doesn't suit up but it remains a situation for owners to worry about.

Amendola has a decent matchup in Cleveland and what makes the situation better is that he likely won't see much of elite cornerback Joe Haden working from the slot.  He still can't be trusted as more than an average WR3 PPR play.
