Insight: Like fellow wideout Julian Edelman, LaFell is expected to suit up. He will be a borderline WR2 versus Miami.
 
12/11/2014 4:36:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder) was limited during Thursday's practice.
Insight: LaFell will play Sunday against the Dolphins and he will be a borderline WR2.
 
12/8/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell was targeted a solid nine times, but came up with just four receptions for 41 yards.
Insight: LaFell's yardage totals are inconsistent this season and he's dependent upon getting into the end zone to help his fantasy owners. Unfortunately, he didn't do that against San Diego, but he does have a career-high seven touchdown catches this season.
 
12/7/2014 7:34:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder) is active for Week 14.
Insight: LaFell's yardage totals are inconsistent, but he's become a Tom Brady favorite in the red zone with six touchdown receptions in the last seven games.

Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell set a personal best Sunday, catching his sixth and seventh touchdowns of the season.
Insight: LaFell's yardage totals are inconsistent, but he's become a Tom brady favorite in the red zone with six touchdown receptions in the last seven games.
 
11/23/2014 6:37:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell had a team-high 98 receiving yards during Sunday's win over Detroit.
Insight: LaFell had nine catches on 12 targets, and is clearly turning into a favorite of Tom Brady. He will be a borderline WR2 for Week 13.
 
11/17/2014 9:20:00 AM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell was mediocre catching three balls for 62 yards.
Insight: The Patriots featured a ground attack to keep the ball away from Andrew Luck and it worked, but that forced low receiving totals for all Pats receivers, including LaFell.
 
11/3/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell returned to mediocrity catching six for 53 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: After his 11-catch, 124-yard, one touchdown game against Chicago, fantasy owners were hoping he could repeat the effort, but he came up short. Still, he did post double-digit fantasy points in a game where he was the third or fourth option which is encouraging.
 
10/26/2014 7:36:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell had a big day against the Bears.
Insight: He caught 11 balls for 124 yards and a score. LaFell should now be considered a borderline WR2, as the season progresses.
 
10/17/2014 9:56:00 AM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell caught just four balls for 55 yards Thursday night against the Jets.
Insight: The excitement of Week 6's huge game against Buffalo (4-97-2) has quickly faded, but at least he's still involved in the offense. It's just going to be hard to figure out when he's going to go big.
 
10/13/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell caught four passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns against the Bills in Week 6.
Insight: Tom Brady is back, so the Patriots recieving game is relevant again, but Brady is spreading the ball around so much, it is hard to predict who will score big when. Rob Gronkowski is the only viable fantasy option in the New England receiving core.

Description: Another Panther has left the nest. Brandon LaFell is headed to New England on a three-year deal. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: The contract is worth $11 million. LaFell has averaged 639 yards and four touchdowns over his last four seasons. He's a late-round flyer at best in fantasy leagues.
 
10/24/2013 2:28:00 PM
Description: Carolina wideout Brandon LaFell got in a solid afternoon of practice Wednesday and is probable for Thursday's game with Tampa Bay.
Insight: LaFell has been dealing with a sore knee. We keep seeing small glimpses of his ability to be a viable fantasy wideout, but not enough. After posting 107 yards and a score in Week 6, he slipped backward last week with a three-catch, 35-yard performance.
 
12/20/2012 2:57:00 PM
Description: Carolina wideout Brandon LaFell didn't practice Thursday. He's still dealing with a turf toe injury. SOURCE: Jonathan Jones, Charlotte Observer
Insight: LaFell practiced on a limited basis last Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday and ended up playing Sunday but he failed to record a catch. We'll see tomorrow if he is going through the same routine this week.
 
12/16/2012 3:34:00 PM
Description: Carolina wideout Brandon LaFell will be on the field for Sunday's game against the Chargers. LaFell had been questionable because of a toe injury.
Insight: LaFell has scored a touchdown in two of his last three games and he could get another one this week against San Diego's below average pass defense (22nd in the league at 242.9 yards per game).
 
12/14/2012 2:35:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell (foot, toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego. Coach Ron Rivera called it 50-50 when asked about the chance of Lafell playing.
Insight: Not only does LaFell have a turf toe injury, he's also dealing with a chipped bone in his foot. Louis Murphy will start if LaFell is inactive and caught five balls for 36 yards last week.
 
12/9/2012 12:20:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell (foot, toe) is inactive Sunday against the Falcons.
Insight: Not only does LaFell have a turf toe injury, he's also dealing with a chipped bone in his foot. Louis Murphy will start but isn't a safe play.
 
12/4/2012 7:18:00 PM
Description: Panthers interim GM Brandon Beane says WR Brandon LaFell is dealing with a turf toe injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. SOURCE: Joe Person, Charlotte Observer
Insight: Carolina coach Ron Rivera called LaFell's injury a sprain on Monday. Louis Murphy is the next man up but won't be a fantasy option this week, as Atlanta has allowed just 16.5 fantasy points to opposing wideouts this season.
 
12/3/2012 10:34:00 AM
Description: Carolina receiver Brandon LaFell sprained his foot in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.
Insight: At this point, the Panthers are still trying to determine the severity of LaFell's injury. For now consider the wideout questionable for Week 14's matchup with the first-place Falcons.
