|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.
| Chris Hogan, Gronk out for New England -- Fri Nov 18 2:10 pm --|
Pats down two receivers

FF Today's Take: We expected Gronk to be sidelined but Hogan's absence comes as a bit of a surprise. Expect Danny Amendola to see more action at wide receiver, but he'll be nothing more than a dart throw given the Patriots tendency to spread the ball around. Hogan was limited in practice this week with a back injury.
| Julian Edelman lands on injury report -- Thu Oct 6 7:45 pm --|
|The Patriots made an addition to their injury report after Thursdayís practice.
Wide receiver Julian Edelman wasnít on Wednesdayís report, but popped up as a limited participant in practice with his foot given as the reason. There arenít any details about the reason for the change in status. (Pro Football Talk)|
FF Today's Take: No cause for alarm yet, but it is a bit troubling considering Edelman has had two foot surgeries in the last year and wasn't on Wednesday's injury report. With Tom Brady back from suspension, Edelman is a high-end WR2 in PPR formats. If he has to sit out this game, however, Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola stand to benefit the most, especially since Rob Gronkowski isn't 100 percent yet.
