|You could easily make the argument that the beginning of the Rams 2011 offensive collapse began when Amendola was lost for the season in Week 1 with an elbow injury. Operating out of the slot in 2010, Amendola was the teamís most productive receiver, catching 85 passes for 685 yards and three touchdowns. With Amendola out, the Rams lost their best chain moving option and several players tried unsuccessfully to operate out of the slot as his replacement. Amendola is ready to roll in 2012 and with the Rams receiver depth chart loaded with unproven young players and journeyman veterans, he should be in line for plenty of work this coming season. He is clearly a poor manís version of Wes Welker but without the 100-reception upside. Since Amendola isnít as quick and shifty as Welker, he isnít as solid of an option in the red zone and it doesnít help that the Rams as a team donít spend much time there. He is, however, quarterback Sam Bradfordís go-to receiver, catching 69.1% of his targets in 2010. Amendola rates as a WR4 in standard scoring leagues and as a WR3 in PPR leagues.

A healthy scratch, other areas of need
|Barring an unexpected change, I'm told Patriots wide receiver Michael Floyd will be inactive for Super Bowl LI as the team doesn't have the luxury to carry five players at the position on the 46-man game-day roster. It needs the spots for other areas, such as special teams and goal-line situations. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The Patriots will roll with Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell at the wide receiver position.

Pats WR listed as questionable

FF Today's Take: Mitchell's knee injury will likely land him on the inactive list. Expect Michael Floyd and Danny Amendola to be active and fill the secondary receiver roles for the Patriots. Neither will be viable fantasy options.
