Brandon LaFell came down with three catches for 37 yards on five targets Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.
Most of his yardage came off a play-action pass from Andy Dalton early in the second quarter. Benefiting from a missed tackle by safety Justin Simmons, LaFell was able to turn it into a 29-yard gain. That was really the extent of LaFell’s production as he was held to just one catch for six yards after halftime. This was a big letdown from LaFell’s previous game when he tallied 95 yards and a touchdown on six catches in a loss to Tennessee. He’ll tangle with the Browns at home in Week 12. Nov 19 - 9:15 PM

Brandon LaFell (knee) is questionable for Week 11 against the Broncos.

He practiced fully Friday, so LaFell should be out there. Coming off his best game of the season, LaFell isn't a recommended fantasy play in Denver.
Nov 17 - 12:43 PM

Brandon LaFell (knee) returned to practice Thursday.

He was "limited." It puts LaFell on track to play, but even coming off a breakout game he will not be a fantasy option in Denver.
Nov 16 - 11:40 AM

Brandon LaFell (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

LaFell had a knee issue back in Week 4 but played through it. He's coming off a 6-95-1 game against the Titans for his first 50-yard game of the year. LaFell won't be a recommended play this week against Denver.
Nov 15 - 3:49 PM

Brandon LaFell caught six-of-10 targets for 95 yards and one touchdown in Week 10 against the Titans.

LaFell led the team in targets with 10. His touchdown came on a 37-yard pass where he was wide open in the middle of the field. LaFell has had a few big games this season but his floor is extremely low. He shouldn't be on the fantasy radar in Week 11 against the Broncos.
Nov 12 - 5:49 PM

Brandon LaFell caught two passes for 28 yards in Week 9 against the Jaguars.

Even with A.J. Green getting ejected, LaFell was a non-factor. Green could be suspended next week, but LaFell won't be more than a low-end streamer.
Nov 5 - 4:31 PM

Brandon LaFell (hamstring) was removed from the Week 9 injury report.

He's good to go against the Jaguars' top pass defense and isn't a fantasy play.
Nov 3 - 1:15 PM

Brandon LaFell (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday.

LaFell sat out Wednesday's session and will likely be limited today, but the practice still puts him on track to face the Jaguars. He will not be a fantasy option in a terrible matchup.
Nov 2 - 11:30 AM

Brandon LaFell (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

LaFell managed a 4-44 line in the Week 8 win over the Colts, setting a new season-high in yards. Even if active, he won't be a fantasy option against the Jaguars' elite pass defense. Tyler Boyd (knee) also didn't practice.
Nov 1 - 3:47 PM

Brandon LaFell delivered four catches for 44 yards on five targets Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 8 win over the Colts.

LaFell committed a fumble in the third quarter but luckily it went out of bounds before anyone could recover it. His longest gain of the afternoon came on a 17-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter, setting up a first-and-goal at the 10-yard line. The 44 yards were a season-high for LaFell, which tells you pretty much all you need to know about his fantasy outlook. He can be safely ignored next week at Jacksonville.
Oct 29 - 5:39 PM

Brandon LaFell caught 4-of-7 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 7 loss.

LaFell actually out-targeted A.J. Green in this one, 7 to 6. LaFell is the second option on a team that struggles to pass at times, making his production very volatile. At the moment he's a touchdown-dependent fantasy start each week.
Oct 22 - 8:30 PM

Brandon LaFell caught 5-of-8 passes for 32 yards in Week 5 against Buffalo.

LaFell was more involved this week with Tyler Boyd getting injured. His eight targets were behind only A.J. Green, though he didn't do much despite the increased role. LaFell has been dealing with a knee issue and will use the Week 6 bye to get healthy.
Oct 8 - 5:09 PM

Brandon LaFell (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's the same routine LaFell went through last week. LaFell will be fine for Sunday's matchup with Buffalo.
Oct 4 - 4:34 PM

Brandon LaFell (knee) wasn't listed on the Bengals' final injury report for Week 4 against the Browns.

LaFell got in a full practice on Friday after being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday. Even with a favorable matchup this week, LaFell is probably best left on the waiver wire.
Sep 29 - 2:34 PM

Brandon LaFell (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

LaFell should be fine for Sunday's game in Cleveland. He's been a non-factor this year, corralling just eight-of-14 targets for 59 yards and no touchdowns.
