2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Oct-25-2013 by Daniel Kalles
Update 10-20-2013 - After missing a game with a concussion, looks like Amendola will be back in action this week
(Update 10-5): Although tight end Rob Gronkowski appears likely to miss yet another game, the Patriots think they will get at least one of their leading receivers back from injury this week. According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, the Patriots "remain highly optimistic" that wide receiver Danny Amendola will play Sunday against the Bengals. Amendola hasn't played since Week 1 due to torn adductor muscles, but he practiced on a limited basis all week, and the reports on how he has looked in practice have been encouraging.
Update September 11, 2013 - Amendola hasnt practiced with his groin injury and looks unlikely to play in week 2.
Out goes Wes Welker, in comes Danny Amendola. The Patriots hope it is simply that easy and if Amendola can stay healthy, it really might be that simple. But that's a big if, as Amendola has struggled to stay healthy over his career. Missing 22 games over his first 4 seasons. In his 1 full season, Amendola caught 85 passes for 689 yards and 3 TDs. Amendola has a very similar skill set to Welker and might even be faster, so if healthy he should catch at least 85 passes for 1000 yards and 5 TDs. Obviously he shouldn't be drafted as high as Welker would have been, but he should definitely be drafted as a #2 WR, *if healthy, he could put up good numbers -- especially in PPR leagues).

2013 Mock Draft Results
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
|4.10||FFToolbox - Jamie Blackburn - In my opinion, Amendola will far exceed Welker's production this season, assuming he stays healthy. Bold, I know. With the TE issues in New England now, and question marks at the other WR spots, Brady will lean on Amendola and his RBs early and often. Also, Amendola can be a vertical threat for this offense as well. In a PPR, I think Danny is a steal at the end of the 4th round, especially with Calvin Johnson as my WR1.|
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
|3.12||KFFSC - I was glad to see Amendola available here. His ADP is going to rise the closer we get to the start of the season. I know he has an injury history but the ceiling is too high for him to go any later in your draft. Don't let talk of Vereen being split out or Gronk not being ready. Brady will get Amendola the ball.|

2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
|4.05||DraftSharks - Wes Welker went from a 67-687-1 line in Miami to leading the NFL with 112 catches in his 1st Patriots season. And that came with Randy Moss starting on the other side. Amendola brings the same obscenely high PPR ceiling in an offense full of question marks. And his injury history doesn't worry me at all. The collarbone and elbow were freak-type injuries. Not like he had recurring knee trouble or something.|
