|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.

Former Titans wideout headed to New England

FF Today's Take: The Patriots will be releasing at least a couple of the veterans wideouts they signed as Danny Amendola and the two rookies (Aaron Dobson & Josh Boyce) are likely to make the roster. That leaves Donald Jones, Micheal Jenkins Julian Edelman (foot) and Hawkins battling for roster spots.

Former Viking headed to New England
|The New England Patriots have signed free-agent wide receiver Michael Jenkins, the team announced Thursday night.
Terms of the deal are not yet known. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Jenkins was released by the Vikings this off-season and will join a revamped wide receiver corps in New England that includes Danny Amendola and Donald Jones. He'll be a fringe fantasy prospect and will likely be on the roster bubble in training camp.
