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.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell probable

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 12:55:25 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both practiced in full all week and are probable for the AFC Championship against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) looks like a real nice pick this weekend, even against a strong Broncos defense. He had three touchdowns and almost 300 yards against them in Week 12 while missing Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) will be overlooked for a reason; he struggles to do much in the offense when Amendola and Edelman are healthy.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell practice

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 14:29:14 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Seeing as Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) came close to 300 yards and three touchdowns against the Denver Broncos in Week 12 without most of his offensive firepower, he's a solid daily pick this weekend. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) was overshadowed last week with Julian Edelman returning, and LaFell is more of a deep sleeper.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell practice

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 14:55:48 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) put up 280 yards and three touchdowns with limited weapons against the Denver Broncos earlier this year, so one has to figure he'll be solid yet again with a healthy receiving corps. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) had just three catches for six yards last week and will take a back seat with Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman healthy now.

Patriots | Several New England WRs could shine

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 20:10:32 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola, Keshawn Martin and Brandon LaFell each recorded at least two receptions last weekend in the win over the Kansas City Chiefs, but their production combined did not come close to that of WR Julian Edelman or TE Rob Gronkowski. Now they move on to face the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) shined when Edelman was sidelined, but he is now way overpriced in FantasyScore since his targets will be down. Martin ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) posted 57 yards last week on a pair of grabs, and he might be a nice sleeper at a low price. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is also way overpriced with Edelman and Gronk healthy, and he should be avoided, even with limited options across the board.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell listed as probable

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 13:54:10 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 15, and is listed as probable for the divisional round playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 16.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) should have a solid role in the passing game against the Chiefs. LaFell could be a cheaper on FantasyScore, but owners may want to consider other options if they are looking for more production.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell practice fully

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 13:59:14 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both were full participants in practice Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) has been a full participant the last two days now, so he should be good to go versus the Kansas City Chiefs. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6%) should be able to play, too, but his value decreases with the assumption that Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski are all active.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell practice

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 15:07:42 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both were full participants in practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) injury is concerning, but it shouldn't slow him down enough to be worried. What you should be worried about is the Kansas City Chiefs fearsome pass rush. It's not an ideal matchup for Brady and that weak offensive line. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is a midrange receiving option this weekend, but with Julian Edelman back, LaFell's ceiling is lowered.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell to face Miami

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 08:34:31 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) is active for Week 17's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was limited in practice throughout the week and was designated as questionable on the injury report. He should be avoided in FantasyScore this week because he has posted more than 36 yards just once in his last five games.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell listed as questionable

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 15:03:04 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as questionable for the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been limited during practice throughout the week and appears to have a chance to play. He has posted more than 36 yards in only one of his last five games and probably is not a great fantasy option this week.
