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.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell contract details

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 13:05:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell's deal is one year in length and has a base value of $2.5 million, including a $1 million signing bonus. He can earn an extra $500,000 for catches, too.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals had a big need at wide receiver behind A.J. Green, and LaFell could play his way into their No. 2 wide receiver. He has WR3 potential but it's safer to draft him as a WR4.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell may be slot receiver

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 17:27:05 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell likely will spend most of his time as a slot receiver during the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell should receive a lot of playing time as the No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver for the Bengals and should be targeted often depending on what the team does at the position during the draft. LaFell can be a middle- to late-round option in most leagues.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell joining Bengals

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 13:01:17 -0700

Free-agent WR Brandon LaFell (Patriots) has agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to his agent.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell fills part of the void left by Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu. He won't necessarily take over as the Bengals' No. 2 wide receiver right away, but he has a great shot to earn that job considering he'll be competing with the likes of Brandon Tate and James Wright. LaFell could very well wind up as Cincinnati's No. 3 receiving target behind A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert. He has WR3 potential if he can stay healthy and earn the Bengals' No. 2 wide receiver job.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell visiting Bengals

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 07:58:46 -0700

Free-agent WR Brandon LaFell (Patriots) will visit the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell had some big performances in New England but has yet to establish himself as a consistent target. He'll be a WR4 with potential for more.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell, Scott Chandler cut

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 13:59:27 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell and TE Scott Chandler were released Wednesday, March 2.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell and Chandler really didn't do a whole lot late last season when the players ahead of them were healthy. LaFell and Chandler both did most of their damage when Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski were injured. LaFell has more upside than Chandler, but neither guy offers much from a fantasy perspective.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell could be gone

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 12:05:47 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent WR Brandon LaFell was the fourth wide receiver on the Patriots' depth chart for the AFC Championship, only played on 33 of 38 snaps and was not targeted. This could spell a LaFell release, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: The warning signs seem to point to LaFell not being wanted and/or needed by the Patriots. His future doesn't look too promising when he's not even targeted in the most important game of the season. Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola are New England's top three targets, so LaFell's future there could be non-existent.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell probable

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 12:55:25 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both practiced in full all week and are probable for the AFC Championship against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) looks like a real nice pick this weekend, even against a strong Broncos defense. He had three touchdowns and almost 300 yards against them in Week 12 while missing Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) will be overlooked for a reason; he struggles to do much in the offense when Amendola and Edelman are healthy.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell practice

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 14:29:14 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Seeing as Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) came close to 300 yards and three touchdowns against the Denver Broncos in Week 12 without most of his offensive firepower, he's a solid daily pick this weekend. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) was overshadowed last week with Julian Edelman returning, and LaFell is more of a deep sleeper.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell practice

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 14:55:48 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) put up 280 yards and three touchdowns with limited weapons against the Denver Broncos earlier this year, so one has to figure he'll be solid yet again with a healthy receiving corps. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) had just three catches for six yards last week and will take a back seat with Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman healthy now.

Patriots | Several New England WRs could shine

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 20:10:32 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola, Keshawn Martin and Brandon LaFell each recorded at least two receptions last weekend in the win over the Kansas City Chiefs, but their production combined did not come close to that of WR Julian Edelman or TE Rob Gronkowski. Now they move on to face the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) shined when Edelman was sidelined, but he is now way overpriced in FantasyScore since his targets will be down. Martin ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) posted 57 yards last week on a pair of grabs, and he might be a nice sleeper at a low price. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is also way overpriced with Edelman and Gronk healthy, and he should be avoided, even with limited options across the board.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell listed as probable

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 13:54:10 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 15, and is listed as probable for the divisional round playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 16.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) should have a solid role in the passing game against the Chiefs. LaFell could be a cheaper on FantasyScore, but owners may want to consider other options if they are looking for more production.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell practice fully

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 13:59:14 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both were full participants in practice Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) has been a full participant the last two days now, so he should be good to go versus the Kansas City Chiefs. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6%) should be able to play, too, but his value decreases with the assumption that Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski are all active.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell practice

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 15:07:42 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both were full participants in practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) injury is concerning, but it shouldn't slow him down enough to be worried. What you should be worried about is the Kansas City Chiefs fearsome pass rush. It's not an ideal matchup for Brady and that weak offensive line. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is a midrange receiving option this weekend, but with Julian Edelman back, LaFell's ceiling is lowered.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell to face Miami

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 08:34:31 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) is active for Week 17's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was limited in practice throughout the week and was designated as questionable on the injury report. He should be avoided in FantasyScore this week because he has posted more than 36 yards just once in his last five games.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell listed as questionable

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 15:03:04 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as questionable for the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been limited during practice throughout the week and appears to have a chance to play. He has posted more than 36 yards in only one of his last five games and probably is not a great fantasy option this week.

Patriots | Top three WRs limited for Patriots

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 15:49:55 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola (knee), Julian Edelman (foot) and Brandon LaFell (foot) were limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor the situation over the next few days to see which receivers will be able to play against the Miami Dolphins. LaFell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was the only one of the three able to play in Week 16 and was held to one catch. Amendola ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) and Edelman ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) missed the last game and their statuses are uncertain for Week 17.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell, Scott Chandler limited

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:03:36 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) and TE Scott Chandler (knee) were limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) hasn't done a lot with the opportunities he's been given, and Chandler has tailed off since Rob Gronkowski returned. Julian Edelman ($7,300, 14.6%) and Danny Amendola ($6,600, 13.2%) were both limited in practice today, but LaFell and Chandler are still risky FantasyScore plays even if Edelman and Amendola are inactive.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell active for Week 16

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 08:55:42 -0800

Confirming a previous report, New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) is active for Week 16's game against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Lafell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is a somewhat risky matchup in FantasyScore against the Jets' passing defense, although he could see more targets than usual because Julian Edelman (foot) and Danny Amendola (knee) are both inactive this week. He has yet to record more than five receptions or 66 receiving yards in a game this year, so his upside appears limited.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell expected to play

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 07:37:50 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the New York Jets, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was listed as questionable on the injury report despite practicing on a limited basis three times during the week. He has yet to post more than five receptions or 66 receiving yards in any game this season and is a somewhat risky option in FantasyScore today.

Patriots | Two New England receivers questionable

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 13:31:20 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Brandon LaFell (foot) and Danny Amendola (knee) were limited in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and are listed as questionable for the Week 16 game against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) hasn't caught more than five passes in any game this season and has only topped 66 receiving yards twice. Amendola ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has more upside, but he also left his last game with the knee injury. There is risk associated with both receivers, but they're attached to a high-powered offense, so there is FantasyScore appeal given the affordable cap hits.

Patriots | Three Pats receivers limited

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 12:46:24 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola (knee), Julian Edelman (foot) and Brandon LaFell (foot) all were limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Knowing the Patriots, all three will be questionable against the New York Jets. Edelman ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) is probably the least likely to play, so he's the biggest risk. Amendola ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) and LaFell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) are shaky daily options even if they play, though.

Patriots | Three Pats receivers limited

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 17:14:11 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola (knee), Julian Edelman (foot) and Brandon LaFell (foot) were all limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23. Edelman took part after sitting in the walkthrough Tuesday, Dec. 22, which typically means that player isn't in the game plan. Edelman has missed five games with a broken foot.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) is likely to rest up for another week, so don't plan on having him in any lineups. Amendola ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is questionable, as well, and may be limited even if he does play. LaFell ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) had one of his better games last week and could quietly be an excellent value pick on FantasyScore if both Edelman and Amendola are out in Week 16.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell posts 66 yards

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 22:45:55 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell rolled up four receptions for 66 yards in the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 23. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has yet to find the end zone since making his season debut Oct. 25, but he has been targeted at least six times in each of his five games while totaling 66 or more yards in each of his past three. He is a decent mid-tier FantasyScore option, and worth using as a WR3/4 or flex play in standard leagues, especially with the rest of the receiving corps so banged up.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell shows up

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 15:12:44 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell caught five balls for 102 yards in Week 9 vs. the Washington Redskins. LaFell played his third game of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners have been waiting for him to show signs of life, especially after being plagued by uncharacteristic drops in his return. Still, he's a tough play each week, given Patriots QB Tom Brady's propensity to spread the ball.

Patriots | Tom Brady has confidence in LaFell

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 09:28:31 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell struggled with drops in his season debut last week but played 48 of 68 offensive snaps in the win over the New York Jets. QB Tom Brady continues to have confidence in LaFell, and the receiver should remain a big part of the offense in Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) should be fine after struggling in his first game back from injury, and Brady's confidence in him shouldn't be overlooked. LaFell's return will mean less action for Danny Amendola, but he can still have usefulness in deeper leagues. LaFell is a fine value pick coming off a short week.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell benched in return

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 02:24:15 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) made his season debut against the New York Jets in Week 7, finishing with two catches for 24 yards and six drops on eight targets. He was benched in the second half. "Performance? If I had to give myself a grade, it would be an 'F.' I let the ball get out of my hands too many times," LaFell said. "Tom threw some good balls, I should have caught them. But overall we got the win. I just have to get back to it. We have a short week. Dust the cobwebs off and come back out here and play."

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) was more than a little rusty in his debut, and it might not be a bad idea to give him a game or two to work out the kinks before chancing him at FantasyScore.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell may see solid time

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 08:04:49 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) could play at least half of the offensive snaps in the Week 7 game against the New York Jets if he has good conditioning.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) will be making his 2015 debut against the Jets and could be involved in the passing game. LaFell may not be the best fantasy option this week because of the Jets defense, but he could he a solid option down the road.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell being activated

Sat, 24 Oct 2015 12:00:07 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) is being activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Oct. 24. LaFell will be available to play Sunday, Oct. 25, against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if LaFell ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) will actually play, or if he'll be limited if he does play. LaFell will enable the Patriots to open up the field, but it may be best to wait a week before starting him.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell could play in Week 7

Sat, 24 Oct 2015 06:47:52 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) participated in practice this week and could be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list before the team's Week 7 game against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell's ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) status for Week 7 is still uncertain, but he probably will have a good chance to play next week if he is not activated. It likely will take time for LaFell to return to playing shape and may not be a great fantasy option when he initially returns.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell returns to practice

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 09:24:46 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) informed teammates he'll return to practice Wednesday, Oct. 21

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) comes off the PUP and could be back soon, but it's probably too optimistic to think about using him against the New York Jets on FantasyScore this week.

Tue, 20 Oct 2015 08:27:13 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) will likely begin practicing this week, but that decision isn't final.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) probably needs a week or two of practice before seeing extensive game action. He'll be a midrange flex option on FantasyScore.

Sun, 18 Oct 2015 19:07:37 -0700

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson might be in jeopardy of losing his spot on the 53-man roster whenever WR Brandon LaFell (foot) is healthy enough to return.

Fantasy Tip: Dobson has been a healthy scratch the past two weekends, sitting against Sunday night in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell feels he is ready

Sun, 18 Oct 2015 19:07:00 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) feels he is ready to return to the practice field after opening the season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. He is eligible to practice Monday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell would be eligible to return as soon as Week 7 against the New York Jets, but FantasyScore player would do well to wait to see him make it through a game or two, knock off the rust and get into game shape before counting on him.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell goes to PUP list

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 13:49:14 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Sept. 5. He will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: This is big news for Danny Amendola, who is now likely to assume the No. 2 wide receiver position behind Julian Edelman until LaFell returns. Amendola ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) isn't a bad sneaky start for Week 1 on FantasyScore.

Patriots | Three NE players absent

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 10:08:08 -0700

New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray (undisclosed), WR Brandon LaFell (foot) and WR Reggie Wayne (undisclosed) were not at practice Saturday, Sept. 5.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell's absence is no surprise since he's been dealing with a foot injury for a while. Gray and Wayne could just have the day off. LaFell ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is a risky play to start the season since he's been hampered for so long. Gray ($2,200, 4.4%) could be a good option in Week 1 since LeGarrette Blount is suspended. It's probably best to hold off on Wayne until we better know his role in the offense.

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:29:51 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) was not at practice Tuesday, Aug. 25, as he continues to nurse a left foot injury.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list in late July, but he's able to return at any time, unless the injury lingers, of course. LaFell still has three weeks to fully recover, but he needs to practice first. View him as a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:18:32 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell was able to shed his walking boot earlier this month, so hopefully he'll be healthy enough to practice with the team soon after training camp begins. LaFell still has more than a month to fully recover. Assuming he does so, he should be drafted as a high-end WR3.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell out of walking boot

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 11:58:09 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (undisclosed) said he is out of the walking boot he was wearing earlier this offseason. LaFell said he was dealing with some nagging injuries from the season and was giving the injuries time to heal. He has been trying to improve this offseason by working with QB Tom Brady and improving his knowledge of the playbook.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell is coming off a solid 2014 season with 74 receptions, 953 yards and seven touchdowns during the regular season. LaFell will be one of the team's top receivers this season and could be a middle-round option in a majority of fantasy drafts.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell in a walking boot

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 07:23:56 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (leg) was spotted with his left foot in a walking boot recently. LaFell hasn't participated in organized team activities due to the undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell came on strong last season, but Tom Brady's suspension will hurt him early this season. LaFell is a low-end WR3 in fantasy.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell listed as questionable

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 14:57:25 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Jan. 23, and is questionable for the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($4,444, 8.89% of cap) should be fine to play in the big game after another week of practice. Seattle poses a stiff test for LaFell and his deep threat, but a cheap price at FantasyScore next weekend makes the decision to start him not as scary.

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 16:54:58 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 22.

Fantasy Tip: There aren't a lot of options at any position with just two teams playing, but LaFell faces a tough test in the Seattle Seahawks and will cost $4,444 (8.89% of cap) on FantasyScore.

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 21. The team did not practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell should be ready to go for the Super Bowl, and will cost $4,444 (8.89% of cap) in FantasyScore contests. He has a tough matchup against a good Seattle defense. There may be better options available to you.

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 13:33:20 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 16, and is listed as probable for the AFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell should be able to play in the game despite his injuries. He is coming of a solid Division Round playoff game performance and will receive a number of targets during the game. LaFell costs $6,600 (13.2% of the cap) on FantasyScore and is an attractive option against the Indianapolis Colts.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell limited again Thursday

Thu, 15 Jan 2015 14:06:34 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is at a bit of a risk of disappointment at FantasyScore this weekend, and it doesn't help that it's a PPR format. Vontae Davis and the rest of the Indianapolis Colts' secondary have really stepped it up in the postseason.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell limited Wednesday

Wed, 14 Jan 2015 13:49:49 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($6,600, 13.2%) isn't the most reliable option at wide receiver and the Colts defended the position better than most teams this season. There are better wide receiver options for championship weekend on FantasyScore.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell expected to play

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 13:27:29 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Jan. 9, but he is probable for the divisional round game against the Baltimore Ravens Saturday, Jan. 10.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has an excellent chance to return profit on his FantasyScore salary if Tom Brady has time to look downfield in the divisional matchup against the Ravens.

Thu, 08 Jan 2015 14:25:41 -0800

New England Patriots WRs Julian Edelman (concussion) and Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) were limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman ($6,700) and LaFell ($5,300) both have excellent matchups versus the Baltimore Ravens, who were one of three teams to surrender 3,000 yards or more to wide receivers this season.
