WR - FA
Week 5 Outlook
The Raiders have placed Brandon LaFell on IR with a torn Achilles tendon.
LaFell's season is over, and this could also end his career. He came on recently as the top WR for the Raiders, but at this point Jared Cook and Jalen Richard are the only fantasy-relevant pass catchers in Oakland.
Brandon LaFell had two receptions for 29 yards and one touchdown on three targets in Oaklands’ 23-21 win over the Cardinals Sunday. He left in the second quarter with an achilles injury.
LaFell was productive before leaving with the injury against Arizona. The severity of his injury was not immediately known.
Brandon LaFell had four receptions for 47 yards on six targets in the Raiders' 20-6 loss to the Chargers Sunday.
LaFell was second on the team in targets and receiving yards Sunday. He is only an option in very deep leagues.
Brandon LaFell brought in all three of his targets for 20 yards in the Raiders' 34-3 loss to the 49ers Thursday night.
LaFell put up limited numbers in the anemic Oakland offensive attack against the 49ers Thursday. He is not a fantasy factor this season.
Brandon LaFell had three receptions for 39 yards and one touchdown on four targets in the Raiders' 42-28 loss to the Colts Sunday.
LaFell is part of a messy Oakland receiving corps with questionable value. Owners should monitor the situation to see if any of Jordy Nelson, LaFell, or Seth Roberts emerges as the clear leader.
