St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola is listed as doubtful after missing his third consecutive practice Friday. Amendola actually played last week with the doubtful tag. The third-year receiver is now out of his walking boot, but there are few positive signs that he will be able to play. WR Chris Givens played very well last week with Amendola out. The rookie caught five passes for 115 yards and a score. Amendola is expected to be a game-time decision Sunday.
When Amendola is healthy, he is certainly worth a fantasy start. This injury though is very limiting. Last week, he only saw one target before leaving the game early. Should Amendola not play, Givens is not a bad backup option despite a tough matchup coming against the Chicago Bears. Numerous receivers are emerging right now and Givens has scored twice in his last three games.
