The New England Patriots are hosting the 0-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers in rainy conditions later this afternoon. New England could use all the help they can get at the receiver position but it appears that two of their top offensive weapons might not see the field this afternoon.
WR Danny Amendola did participate in practice this week but is officially listed as doubtful and NFL Network reporter Albert Breer reports that it’s likely going to be two more weeks before Amendola returns to actual game time conditions.
Breer is also reporting that TE Rob Gronkowski is questionable to see action this afternoon. Breer believes Gronkowski will not see action, but if he does somehow manage to find the field, it will be very limited action.
Fantasy owners should prepare for Amendola to be out and look elsewhere at the tight end position.
