Back in March, Danny Amendola opted to depart the New England Patriots for the divisional rival Miami Dolphins in free agency. The 32-year-old signed a two-year, $12 million deal after making just under $1.7 million in cash earnings a year ago (according to Spotrac).
It's been a bit of a tumultuous offseason for Miami, having dealt star wideout Jarvis Landry to Cleveland and cutting All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suhto provide some relief toward the cap. But the Dolphins will be looking to rebound from a 6-10 season, and there could be some opportunities to exploit for fantasy football purposes this year.
The team signed receiver Albert Wilson to a more lucrative ($8 million per year) three-year deal, so he'll join Amendola in competition for the third receiver role behind DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. However, there's reason to believe that Amendola will seize the opportunity, making him a late-round flier to target in your fantasy football drafts.
