Fantasy Football: Danny Amendola Inactive For St. Louis Rams
The inactives list has begun to come out for Week 14 and fantasy football owners must take note of the fact that St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola is inactive this week. I have suggested that Amendola would be a great pickup to have especially in a PPR league but owners won’t be able to take advantage of what Amendola is capable of doing. I would suggest looking at Brian Hartline or Jeremy Maclin as a suitable replacement for Amendola in your lineup.
Also out this week are the Philadelphia Eagles’ Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy again. Bryce Brown will start and could match his first two games so Brown is a must-start today. Nick Foles continues as the quarterback for the Eagles as well and will do so the rest of the season. I would drop Vick at this point because it isn’t likely he will see the field the rest of the season.
On the flip side, Jermaine Gresham is active this week for the Cincinnati Bengals. Gresham should have a solid afternoon from the tight end position and should be considered in the top-10 for tight ends this week. If you want to get sneaky with a pickup, Tim Tebow is active for the New York Jets. With the recent struggles of Mark Sanchez at quarterback, Tebow could easily end up in the game. It would be a huge risk in the opening round of the playoffs but if Tebow gets in, he could put up some solid numbers.
