2. Danny Amendola
Three words: Wes Welker’s replacement. Amendola, as the team’s slot receiver, is a key portion of the team’s offensive machine, expected to replace the production and consistency of one of the league’s best receivers. At 27, he’s talented, speedy, and possibly shiftier in space than Welker.
Amendola, who has 196 career receptions for 1,726 yards, has the potential to be a dynamic force for the offense after quickly building a relationship with Tom Brady.
