Amendola, like most of the rest of the Patriots, had a huge game in Week 9 against Pittsburgh, totaling 122 yards and a touchdown despite being targeted only four times. He caught all four passes, which helps. Now, with a bye week further separating him from the injuries that wrecked the first half of his season, Amendola looks like a high-end receiver for the stretch run.
That said, the Patriots draw a tough Carolina defense this week that could restrict Amendola to a more pedestrian day than his fantasy owners are hoping. The Panthers have been awfully tough against the pass, but with the Pats getting all their offensive producers healthy finally, they may have enough distractions out there that Amendola can go out and have a productive game.
