The scoring output for Menegola was volatile last season, his outside role can provide inconsistent scores across the season. 

Menegola is likely a pass in season long fantasy, his interrupted pre-season is cause for concern.

His ADP likely slides in single season draft leagues, he won’t be a priority target.
