I am decently high on Amendola going into this year. There is a lot of speculation that the Josh McDaniels effect will turn Amendola into St. Louis' Wes Welker. Amendola will be working out of the slot this year, and is going into his 3 year as an NFL receiver. Most of his value hinges on the development of Bradford, as touch downs will be scarce for StL receivers. If Bradford can move the ball and the Rams offense using Amendola as his possession receiver, a big year isn't out of the question. I expect him to be able to improve on his 2010 season.
In a PPR he could have value, just don't expect yards-after-the-catch. He's more of a Bess to me than a Welker.
I understand you there. I should've emphasized more that although I think Amendola will assume a Welker role
, that doesn't necessarily mean he will have Welker production.
Touchdowns have been scarce in St. Louis and as you said, he's not quite the same pedigree as Welker.
