Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola said he has been working out with New York Giants QB Colt McCoy and Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield this offseason since they all live in the same area.
Huddle Up: Amendola is coming off a solid 2019 season where he posted 678 yards and one touchdown. He should be a reliable target for the Lions again this upcoming season and should have value in point-per-reception leagues.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola will sign a one-year extension with the team, according to league sources Saturday, Feb. 22.
Huddle Up: Amendola had four games of seven-plus catches and 95-plus yards, accounting for the bulk of his 62-678-1 season in 2019. He remains a WR5 consideration in PPR formats.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola can collect a $250,000 contract incentive if he earns 137 receiving yards in Week 17's game against the Green Bay Packers. Entering play Sunday, Dec. 29, he has 663 receiving yards for the season and needs to reach the 800-yard milestone in order to get the bonus.

Detroit Lions RB Danny Amendola ended up with eight receptions for 102 yards on 13 targets in Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Amendola posted his third 100-yard game of the season, and first since Oct. 20. However, he hasn't scored since Week 1 and remains nothing more than a WR4 in PPR leagues with lesser value in mixed play. The Lions meet the Broncos in Week 16.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola posted five receptions for 34 yards on eight targets in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Amendola hasn't found the end zone since Week 1. While he has three or more grabs in eight straight outings to make himself useful to fantasy owners in deeper PPR leagues, he is a risky standard option heading into Week 15 against the Buccaneers.

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola caught three passes for 32 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 13. He was targeted eight times during the game.
Huddle Up: Amendola has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last five games but has been targeted five or more times in six of the last seven games. He could be a flex option in some deeper point-per-reception leagues but is not a must-start option.
