Bengals | Tyler Boyd the real No. 2 in Cincinnati?

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 10:25:01 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell will be the "official No. 2" to start the season, but WR Tyler Boyd could end up being the second-most productive wide receiver on the team, according to Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals are quite deep at receiver behind A.J. Green, as first-round selection John Ross and Boyd are backing LaFell at the moment. LaFell is average at best in a number of areas as a receiver, so it would not be surprising to see his role diminish as the season progresses. Either way, Green and Tyler Eifert figure to dominate the majority of high-leverage targets in Cincinnati this year.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell likely will make team

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 13:26:24 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell likely will make the 53-man roster this season because it would leave at least $3 million of dead money on the salary cap if he was released, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Katherine Terrell. The Bengals also like that LaFell has a mentor-like relationship with WR A.J. Green.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell should continue to be one of the starting receivers for the Bengals in 2017 but could lose some targets because of the younger receivers on the team. He posted 862 yards and six touchdowns this past season and could be a No. 4 or No. 5 fantasy receiver if he can post similar numbers.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell expects more

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 19:48:04 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell said he feels he will be even better in 2017 because he is already familiar with QB Andy Dalton and the offense.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell finished with 862 yards and six touchdowns in his first year in Cincinnati, and if the Bengals don't add any more receivers this offseason, he should be a useful WR4.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell to have thumb surgery

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 09:49:55 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (thumb) will undergo surgery this offseason to repair a ligament in his thumb, but it should not affect his availability for next season.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell will be a free agent this offseason and may receive interest from multiple teams as a potential No. 3 receiver. He finished the 2106 season with 862 yards and six touchdowns. LaFell probably will be a depth player for fantasy owners next season as a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell catches seven passes

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 14:21:24 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell caught seven passes for 67 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell played well in the last five weeks of the season with three games with at least 90 yards and two touchdowns during that span. He should find a decent contract this offseason and probably will be a No. 3 receiver for a team. Owners can consider LaFell as a late-round option in drafts.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell over 100 yards

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 03:36:16 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell caught six of his 10 targeted passes for 130 yards and a touchdown in a 12-10 loss to the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: One of those passes was an 86-yard touchdown effort from Andy Dalton. Take that away and LaFell still has five catches for 44 yards. Not the best numbers, but no slouch either. Keep an eye on LaFell because he and Andy Dalton seem to have developed a rapport in A.J. Green's absence.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell misses 100 yards

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 15:38:44 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell caught seven passes for 91 yards but did not score in a 24-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell was targeted nine times, meaning he had a pretty decent day on the field. LaFell may not have scored, but it's clear from this game that he is one of Andy Dalton's top threats. LaFell makes a decent WR3 candidate but Dalton's struggles make it harder to recommend him higher.
