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.
Patriots signed WR Brandon LaFell to a 3-year, $11 million contract including a $3 million signing bonus. A disappointing 4th-year , LaFell posted just 49 receptions, 627 yards, and 5 touchdowns with Carolina last season.
