Fantasy Football Week 14 Mailbag: Danny Amendola, Scott Chandler Advice

by NESN Staff

December 9, 2015

Welcome to the fantasy football playoffs, ladies and gentlemen.

Now that you are in the playoffs, though, the smallest error could be the difference between advancing or going home with nothing. But we’re here to help with our weekly mailbag, which you can check out below.

Tim on Facebook: Would you play Amendola vs Texans or Hurns, coming off a concussion, against Indy?
Until the New England Patriots get healthy on offense, Danny Amendola should continue to be one of Tom Brady’s main targets. Amendola found the end zone in his first game back from injury last weekend, so his recent health issues appear to be in the past.

Hurns has scored seven touchdowns this season, and he usually is good for double-digit points. It’s hard to know what he will do after his concussion, though.

Hurns isn’t a bad choice at flex, but definitely go with Amendola at wide receiver.

Colin on Facebook: Would you start Scott Chandler or Ben Watson?
Again, until the Patriots get Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski back, they will have to rely on the few weapons they have. That’s good news for owners who picked up Chandler after Gronk’s injury. The backup tight end didn’t disappoint last week, as he found the end zone for a second consecutive game.

Watson is coming off a strong performance against the Carolina Panthers, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers present a tough matchup for him and the New Orleans Saints this weekend. So keep riding the hot hand in Chandler until Gronk comes back.

Nabin on Facebook: Russell Wilson against Ravens or Blake Bortles against Indy?
Both quarterbacks have been putting up big numbers lately, and they also face favorable matchups in Week 14.

Wilson went from being benched in many leagues to three consecutive games with at least three touchdown passes, and Bortles is coming off an impressive five-touchdown performance for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The slight edge goes to Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks this week, but you really can’t go wrong.

Jason on Facebook: Start C.J. Anderson or Jeremy Langford?
Anderson is dealing with an ankle injury and is questionable for the Denver Broncos this weekend. Langford has had some big weeks of late, but he clearly is behind a healthy Matt Forte in the Chicago Bears’ pecking order.

While neither are great options, Anderson has the potential to get you more points if he plays. But you might want to take a look at the waiver wire for some better options.
