Bengals | Brandon LaFell practicing Sunday

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 13:37:13 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (hand) participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 21. He caught balls during warmups.

Fantasy Tip: The hand injury isn't as serious as originally thought, but he could be good to go for the regular season opener. Tyler Boyd has looked impressive, though, and could compete with LaFell for the No. 2 wide receiver position.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell may not miss time

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 11:07:18 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (hand) is still expected to be ready by Week 1 despite a torn ligament in his hand, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Boyd won't be taking over that No. 2 receiver position just yet. LaFell's status should be monitored leading up to the regular season, but he could actually be somewhat of a value in drafts now if other owners are scared away. Still, don't view him as more than a WR5. He's unproven and in a new offense.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell may need surgery

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 08:47:41 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (hand) has a torn ligament in his hand, and he could require surgery. The surgery isn't expected to be of the season-ending variety.

Fantasy Tip: His fantasy stock is likely to take a sizeable hit if he's forced to have surgery. Stay tuned for updates on the midrange fantasy receiver.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell stepping up game

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 21:36:16 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell has struggled at times in camp with drops and getting open, but he showed improvement Monday, Aug. 8. Beat writer Geoff Hobson says LaFell has been flashing more and more each practice lately.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell is expected to start opposite A.J. Green, and he could re-emerged as a legitimate WR3/4 or flex option, especially if he is forced to step up his game with teams electing to double Green or concentrate their better cover men on Green and Tyler Eifert.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell ahead of Tyler Boyd

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 13:49:52 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell is listed ahead of rookie WR Tyler Boyd on the Begnals' initial depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Boyd should still play a nice role in Cincinnati's offense, but at this point he's only a deep flier consideration in standard leagues. LaFell has WR5 value, but A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert, if he's healthy, will be the two main targets in Cincy's passing game again.

Bengals | Depth at receiver for Bengals

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 11:37:24 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Mario Alford, Jake Kumerow and Brandon Tate were named by director of player personnel Duke Tobin as receivers who can contribute behind WRs A.J. Green, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd.

Fantasy Tip: Tate might be the better bet of the three to have fantasy value with his experience and return ability, but none of them should be regarded as vital additions to fantasy rosters.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell feeling comfortable

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 22:10:16 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell is feeling confident with QB Andy Dalton, and two continue to build rapport. "I've been working with (Dalton) for a little over two months now so we've got the timing down and it's been showing in practice every day," LaFell said Tuesday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell failed to find the end zone last season in New England after going off for 74 grabs, 953 yards and seven touchdowns, all career highs, in 2014. He is replacing Marvin Jones in the Cincinnati offense, and will likely be the No. 3 receiver. As such, he is only worth a late-round flier in most fantasy leagues, as he hopes to re-gain his '14 magic.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell picking up offense

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 19:01:18 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell has picked up the offense quickly, QB Andy Dalton said, and LaFell said he is ready to take advantage if defenses double team WR A.J. Green.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has a chance to open the year as Cincinnati's No. 2 receiver, and he is worth grabbing in the later rounds of drafts in case he runs with the role.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell ready to prove himself

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 18:34:30 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell said his desire to be able to play at a high level after battling injuries in 2015 has been motivation to work hard this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: With Cincinnati looking for a No. 2 receiver, LaFell has some upside. However, he is far from a sure thing, so draft him as a backup and hope for the best.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell contract details

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 13:05:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell's deal is one year in length and has a base value of $2.5 million, including a $1 million signing bonus. He can earn an extra $500,000 for catches, too.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals had a big need at wide receiver behind A.J. Green, and LaFell could play his way into their No. 2 wide receiver. He has WR3 potential but it's safer to draft him as a WR4.
