Patriots WR Danny Amendola involved in less than half of offensive plays

After being limited in practice this week with a groin injury, Danny Amendola @DannyAmendola played only 32 of 69 snaps in Sunday's win. The Patriots looked to hold the lead running the ball in double TE sets, which forced Amendola to the sidelines. Amendola was coming off of his second 10-catch game of the season heading into week 16.

Fantasy Analysis:

One of the worst things to happen to fantasy owners: your player suits up, but hardly plays. At least he grabbed a couple of passes for 45 yards in his limited time on the field. Fantasy owners came into the season expecting Amendola to be a PPR machine with injury issues, and he is who we thought he was. That's why this week was such a disappointment. Amendola came into the week healthy enough to start and was expected to perform like a low WR2 or High WR3. If your championship is next week, or you have a 2 week championship format, consider him a low WR3 against Buffalo.
