New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell and Kenbrell Thompkins each posted touchdown grabs in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Friday, Aug. 15. LaFell was targeted three times, catching two for 29 yards and the score, while Thompkins had three receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown while being targeted four times.
Fantasy Tip: The two are battling for the No. 3 job, although each figure to be a major part of the offense no matter how things shake down. Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola haven't exactly been the picture of health over their careers, so LaFell and Thompkins are likely to see a start of two during the season. A late-round flier on each wouldn't be a bad idea on draft day.

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell has looked good in training camp this summer, and the team has been pleased with his understanding of the offensive system.

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.

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell admits he is playing at half-speed as he adjusts to the Patriots codeword offensive system, after using a numbers-based system last season in Carolina. LaFell is focused on picking up the offense so he can continue to gel and build chemistry with QB Tom Brady during organized team activities, instead of waiting until training camp.
Fantasy Tip: LaFell is joining an already crowded wide receiver corps and has to learn the offense. Given New England's propensity to spread the ball around, his fantasy value is tied to an injury within the receiving corps.

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell said he chose to play with the Patriots because he wanted to play for a Hall of Fame quarterback in QB Tom Brady.

The New England Patriots agreed to terms with free-agent WR Brandon LaFell (Panthers) on a three-year deal Saturday, March 15, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: LaFell is a tall target who might see an uptick in production with Tom Brady tossing the football to him. He has to be viewed as a fantasy sleeper heading into the 2014 season.
