On Sunday, the Patriots' passing game will be as close to full strength as it's been this season. Tight end Rob Gronkowski debuted last week, and he will be joined on the field versus the Dolphins by wide receiver Danny Amendola , who missed Week 7 due to a concussion. NFL Network's Albert Breer has been told by a source that Amendola has passed all of his concussion tests, is cleared and will play in Week 8.
However, the Patriots are likely to be without their top cornerback for another game. Aqib Talib is still being bothered by a strained hip flexor. Although he practiced in limited fashion all week, Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio wrote Saturday that "the current expectation is that the Patriots won't have Talib available" for the Dolphins game.
Although there is a measure of mystery surrounding the health of quarterback Tom Brady, New England's passing game appears poised to have a great afternoon against Miami's so-so pass defense. Amendola is worth WR2 consideration in standard leagues, and you should start him with confidence in PPR leagues.
