Amendola exited the team's Week One contest versus the Bills due to a groin injury, but later returned to cap off a 10-catch, 104-yard performance. However, after being limited at practice all week due to the injury, the Patriots' top receiving threat could now potentially miss a handful of games.
Fantasy Spin: Two-to-six weeks is a vague timeline that could be attributed to the uncertainty of the injury, or Head Coach Bill Belichick holding his cards to his chest in trademark fashion. What is known, however, is that when Amendola is on the field, he will be called upon to be a big component of the offense with the team already hurting for contributors on offense. Amendola's upside remains through the roof in PPR leagues, and is worth a stash despite the weekly headache of checking on his status and speculating if he's worth a start. Provided he hits the field in a reasonable amount of time, it would all be worth it.
