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.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell may be slot receiver

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 17:27:05 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell likely will spend most of his time as a slot receiver during the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell should receive a lot of playing time as the No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver for the Bengals and should be targeted often depending on what the team does at the position during the draft. LaFell can be a middle- to late-round option in most leagues.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell joining Bengals

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 13:01:17 -0700

Free-agent WR Brandon LaFell (Patriots) has agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to his agent.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell fills part of the void left by Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu. He won't necessarily take over as the Bengals' No. 2 wide receiver right away, but he has a great shot to earn that job considering he'll be competing with the likes of Brandon Tate and James Wright. LaFell could very well wind up as Cincinnati's No. 3 receiving target behind A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert. He has WR3 potential if he can stay healthy and earn the Bengals' No. 2 wide receiver job.

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 07:58:46 -0700

Free-agent WR Brandon LaFell (Patriots) will visit the Cincinnati Bengals.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell, Scott Chandler cut

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 13:59:27 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell and TE Scott Chandler were released Wednesday, March 2.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell and Chandler really didn't do a whole lot late last season when the players ahead of them were healthy. LaFell and Chandler both did most of their damage when Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski were injured. LaFell has more upside than Chandler, but neither guy offers much from a fantasy perspective.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell could be gone

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 12:05:47 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent WR Brandon LaFell was the fourth wide receiver on the Patriots' depth chart for the AFC Championship, only played on 33 of 38 snaps and was not targeted. This could spell a LaFell release, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: The warning signs seem to point to LaFell not being wanted and/or needed by the Patriots. His future doesn't look too promising when he's not even targeted in the most important game of the season. Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola are New England's top three targets, so LaFell's future there could be non-existent.
