Patriot's wide receiver Brandon LaFell caught six passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.
Fantasy Impact: With only three receivers active for the game, and Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman unable to shake the Chiefs' coverage, LaFell saw a team-high 10 targets. It's unlikely he'll see this much action again, after failing to impress earlier in the season.

Patriot's WR Brandon LaFell hauled in 2 balls on 5 targets for 14 yards in the Patriot's 30-7 win over the Panthers on Friday night.
Fantasy Impact: It's clear LaFell is still getting used to the Patriot's offensive scheme, but Tom Brady definitely felt comfortable targeting him. In a crowded Patriots receiving corps, it's going to be hard for LaFell to contribute much fantasy-wise this year.

ESPN Boston reports that Patriot's wide receiver Brandon LaFell is feeling a lot more comfortable in New England, after initially feeling "shell-shocked." Coach Bill Belichick added "he might be able to carve out a role for himself...it might be a big one." (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: The Patriot's offensive scheme is deep and complicated, so it's understandable that LaFell needed some time to acclimate himself in first year with New England. The Patriot's have a crowded receiving corps, but LaFell has a shot to contribute. He's gone 4-for-7 with 45 yards and a touchdown in two preseason games.

Brandon LaFell caught two catches on three targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason match up against the Eagles.
Fantasy Impact: In a crowded Patriot's receiving corps, it's going to be an uphill battle for LaFell to earn playing time this year. He's been improving his chemistry with Tom Brady at camp, and with many of the Patriot's receivers having past injury issues, he'll have a shot to contribute.

Brandon LaFell's concentration problems have followed him from last season, with Patriots Football Weekly noting that the wide receiver's "inconsistent hands" are drawing negative attention early on at camp. (Source: Patriots Football Weekly
Fantasy Impact: LaFell is already buried in the depth chart and it's going to take him some time to learn the Patriot's complicated offensive playbook. He's not helping his cause with concentration issues early on at camp, especially with his 14% drop rate in 2013. Lafell has the size and separation ability to potentially fill Aaron Hernandez's role in the slot if he can turn things around, but his sleeper potential is dwindling.

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues Owned in 14% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: LaFell is another guy that I mostly dismissed after his first strong game of the fantasy football season. That was justified when he followed it up with just 20 yards against the Bengals when Tom Brady was great, but in Week 6 they were both at their best […]
