Bengals | Brandon LaFell pulls down five balls

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 18:23:24 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell posted five receptions for 32 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell was limited by a knee during the week, but he didn't seem to have any ill effects of the injury during the game, which was played in rainy conditions, too. That's a good sign, but he still is doing nothing. His 32 yards on Sunday were a season high and he has zero touchdowns through five games, so that tells you a little something about his fantasy value going forward.

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 13:21:21 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell limited by knee

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 13:15:30 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) was considered a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has managed a total of eight receptions, failing to take advantage of the absence of rookie John Ross. In fact, he managed just one grab for five yards in Week 3, and that's not helping anyone in fantasy.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell hauls in three balls

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 18:21:44 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell racked up three catches for 24 yards on five targets in Week 1 against Baltimore.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell is second in the pecking order in Cincinnati for receptions and that's exactly where he slotted behind A.J. Green. It was an ugly game all around for the Bengals offense. Expect some improvement from LaFell heading into Week 2 against the Texans.

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.

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 13:41:15 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR Brandon LaFell agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Bengals Wednesday, March 8. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell had a solid 2016 season with the Bengals and finished with 862 yards and six touchdowns. He should be a top-three receiver for the Bengals in 2017 and can be a No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners.

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.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has been targeted at least seven times in three of the last four games but has more than 32 yards in only one on his last six games. He will continue to receive most of the snaps at receiver but should only be considered as a flex option in deeper leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell posted five receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was targeted a team-high seven times.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell just missed out on a 100-yard day, but looked solid as the team's No. 1 receiver with A.J. Green still on the shelf. He remains a decent WR3 heading into Week 14.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell upgraded to full

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 15:57:40 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't matter how healthy LaFell is, as he's been pretty useless for fantasy teams over the past month. In fact, the 30-year-old wide-out has exceeded 13 receiving yards only once in his last four games, while garnering no more than a pair of targets in each of the last two. Owners should avoid him.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell also limited

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 13:24:05 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell hasn't done much at all since the return of Tyler Eifert. Most of the offense has been channeled either through the running game, A.J. Green or Eifert. LaFell shouldn't necessarily be dropped just yet, but don't expect the kind of numbers he was producing pre-Eifert.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell does very little

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 21:00:57 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Before heading to London, LaFell had four touchdowns in three games, but he has just two catches for 15 yards on four targets over the past two outings. He has disappeared from the offensive plan, and fantasy owners can return him to the waiver wire now.

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 14:27:15 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell caught four passes for 82 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 7.

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 22:20:10 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell had two receptions for 13 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the New England Patriots. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell didn't do much against his former team, but he was able to find the end zone for the third time in two games. He remains more of a low-end WR3 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell finds end zone twice

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 21:56:16 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell rolled up eight catches for 68 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys. He was targeted a game-high 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has held off rookie Tyler Boyd for the No. 2 job in Cincinnati opposite A.J. Green and he is not showing any signs of relinquishing his hold on the job. He remains a decent WR4 in most fantasy formats.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell yet to lock up job

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 21:27:53 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (hand) has yet to play in a preseason game due to a hand injury. He and rookie WR Tyler Boyd are considered the top two candidates to start opposite WR A.J. Green. LaFell is likely to play in the preseason game Sunday, Aug. 28, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell is a veteran receiver who is worth using as a WR4 or flex fantasy play even if he is able to win the starting job opposite Grene. He posted 37 catches for 515 yards with no touchdowns last season in New England, so he isn't spectacular even in a prominent role.

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 13:37:13 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (hand) participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 21. He caught balls during warmups.

Fantasy Tip: The hand injury isn't as serious as originally thought, but he could be good to go for the regular season opener. Tyler Boyd has looked impressive, though, and could compete with LaFell for the No. 2 wide receiver position.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell may not miss time

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 11:07:18 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (hand) is still expected to be ready by Week 1 despite a torn ligament in his hand, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Boyd won't be taking over that No. 2 receiver position just yet. LaFell's status should be monitored leading up to the regular season, but he could actually be somewhat of a value in drafts now if other owners are scared away. Still, don't view him as more than a WR5. He's unproven and in a new offense.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell stepping up game

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 21:36:16 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell has struggled at times in camp with drops and getting open, but he showed improvement Monday, Aug. 8. Beat writer Geoff Hobson says LaFell has been flashing more and more each practice lately.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell is expected to start opposite A.J. Green, and he could re-emerged as a legitimate WR3/4 or flex option, especially if he is forced to step up his game with teams electing to double Green or concentrate their better cover men on Green and Tyler Eifert.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell ahead of Tyler Boyd

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 13:49:52 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell is listed ahead of rookie WR Tyler Boyd on the Begnals' initial depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Boyd should still play a nice role in Cincinnati's offense, but at this point he's only a deep flier consideration in standard leagues. LaFell has WR5 value, but A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert, if he's healthy, will be the two main targets in Cincy's passing game again.

Bengals | Depth at receiver for Bengals

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 11:37:24 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Mario Alford, Jake Kumerow and Brandon Tate were named by director of player personnel Duke Tobin as receivers who can contribute behind WRs A.J. Green, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd.

Fantasy Tip: Tate might be the better bet of the three to have fantasy value with his experience and return ability, but none of them should be regarded as vital additions to fantasy rosters.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell feeling comfortable

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 22:10:16 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell is feeling confident with QB Andy Dalton, and two continue to build rapport. "I've been working with (Dalton) for a little over two months now so we've got the timing down and it's been showing in practice every day," LaFell said Tuesday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell failed to find the end zone last season in New England after going off for 74 grabs, 953 yards and seven touchdowns, all career highs, in 2014. He is replacing Marvin Jones in the Cincinnati offense, and will likely be the No. 3 receiver. As such, he is only worth a late-round flier in most fantasy leagues, as he hopes to re-gain his '14 magic.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell picking up offense

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 19:01:18 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell has picked up the offense quickly, QB Andy Dalton said, and LaFell said he is ready to take advantage if defenses double team WR A.J. Green.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has a chance to open the year as Cincinnati's No. 2 receiver, and he is worth grabbing in the later rounds of drafts in case he runs with the role.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell ready to prove himself

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 18:34:30 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell said his desire to be able to play at a high level after battling injuries in 2015 has been motivation to work hard this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: With Cincinnati looking for a No. 2 receiver, LaFell has some upside. However, he is far from a sure thing, so draft him as a backup and hope for the best.
