Patriot's wide-receiver Brandon LaFell caught 3-of-4 targets for 62 yards in the team's Week 11 win over the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: He's got a legitimate role in the Patriot's offense, and is putting up solid WR2/3 numbers every week. Fire him up against the Lions in Week 12.

Patriot's wide-receiver Brandon LaFell caught 6-of-13 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 9 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: He's become the Patriot's go-to outside receiver, and while he dropped a potential TD reception in the end zone, he's looking more and more like an every-week WR2.

Patriot's wide-receiver Brandon LaFell caught 11-of-11 targets for 124 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: LaFell continued his streak of success, and is benefiting as the Patriot's offense is taking more shots down-field. He's got the trust of Tom Brady and the coaching staff, and will be a legit WR3 in Week 8 against a tough Broncos defense.

Patriot's wide-receiver Brandon LaFell caught 4-of-5 targets for 55 yards in the team's Week 7 win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: LaFell now has at least 50 yards in three of the Patriot's last four games. Tom Brady is giving him looks, but he's a WR4 at best.

Patriot's wide-receiver Brandon LaFell hauled in 4 catches for 97 yards and 2 touchdowns in the team's Week 6 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: LaFell saw some success playing opposite Julian Edelman in the Patriot's scheme, but he's not likely to be a reliable fantasy option in the long-term.

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.

By Jeff Moore, Patriots Correspondent, Mon, Sep 22nd 4:06pm EDT

Patriot's wide receiver Brandon LaFell hauled in 3 catches for 46 yards in the team's Week 3 game against the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: While he was second on the team in receptions behind Julian Edelman, LaFell doesn't hold any fantasy relevancy.

By Jeff Moore, Patriots Correspondent, Mon, Sep 8th 12:54pm EDT

Patriots WR Brandon LaFell couldn't haul in a single of his five targets in the Patriots' Week 1 game against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: It didn't help that Tom Brady and the Pats' offensive line were having a bad day, but LaFell did not look good. He has very little fantasy relevancy.

By Jeff Moore, Patriots Correspondent, Sat, Aug 23rd 2:17am EDT

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.

During his first month with his new team, Brandon LaFell didn’t have much to offer. He started the season slowly, with a six target zero reception game in New England’s opening week loss against Miami. He and QB Tom Brady looked out of sync, and uncomfortable. Since then, New England has played a game of … Continue reading » The post Brandon LaFell emerging as he gains co...

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues Owned in 40% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: The Patriots haven’t had a legitimate sideline threat since Randy Moss, and while I’m not saying LaFell is even in the same ballpark as “The Freak”, he has been incredibly valuable in Tom Brady’s rejuvenated aerial attack. LaFell pulled in all 11 of his […]

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.
