Unfortunately for the Rams, they lost their top producer early in the second quarter when WR Danny Amendola dove for a pass on the sideline and reportedly broke his collarbone, an injury that is sending ripples through the fantasy football world.
The fourth-year pro has been QB Sam Bradford’s favorite target whenever he is in the game. That hasn’t been as often as Amendola, Bradford or the rest of the Rams want.
Amendola missed 15 games last season after breaking his arm and, if it is a broken collarbone, he could miss another month or more this season. San Diego Chargers' RB Ryan Mathews suffered a similar injury this preseason and was projected to miss four to six weeks.
With 32 catches in just over four games, Amendola is a PPR-league monster. On pace to set career-highs in receptions, yards, touchdowns and first downs, this loss hurts the Rams and has big implications on the fantasy front.
Here are the five biggest implications of the Amendola injury.
