Patriots | Brandon LaFell could take on Aaron Hernandez role

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell could play the "Aaron Hernandez" role this year, according to a source. LaFell's former coach, Ron Rivera, said LaFell knew the tight end position in addition to all of their wide receiver positions. It helps that the Patriots aren't deep at tight end behind TE Rob Gronkowski.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell still has a lot of work to do in order to become fantasy relevant. Though, if he does end up in Hernandez's old role, he could gain more value. Monitor his status throughout training camp, but it's best not to draft him as of now.
