Brandon LaFell caught 2-of-4 targets for 35 yards in Week 17 against Baltimore.
LaFell remained the Bengals’ No. 2 receiver with first-rounder John Ross a rookie disappointment. He didn’t do much despite a lack of competition for targets, finishing with 52 catches, 548 yards, and three touchdowns. LaFell will return on a $2.6 million salary next year, but should see his role reduced. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 08:53:00 PM

Brandon LaFell caught 4-of-8 targets for six yards in the Bengals' Week 16 win over the Lions.

Lafell continued to put up lackluster numbers with the Bengals passing offense sputtering. Surpassing 55 yards in just 1-of-15 games this season, Lafell shouldn't be started in fantasy leagues Week 17.

Brandon LaFell caught 2-of-6 targets for 53 yards in the Bengals' Week 15 loss to the Vikings.

LaFell was quiet for the majority of the game, catching a 45-yard pass late. With the offense falling to pieces, he shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar for Week 16 against the Lions.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 04:48:00 PM

Brandon LaFell caught 3-of-6 targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Bears.

LaFell has topped 55 yards in just 1-of-13 games this season. Despite Sunday's score, he will not be a fantasy option in Week 15 against the Vikings.

Brandon LaFell caught 4-of-7 targets for 55 yards in the Bengals' Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

LaFell and A.J. Green (16 targets) were the only Bengals to see more than three targets in this one. LaFell made a nifty grab along the sideline for 27 yards, dragging both feet, but that was his lone highlight. He remains mostly a non-factor in fantasy and will stay that way Week 14 against Chicago.

Brandon LaFell caught 3-of-6 targets for 33 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Browns.

LaFell was second on the team in targets, but continued to be a non-entity for fantasy purposes. He has hit five catches just twice on the season while being held to fewer than 50-yards receiving in every game except for one. He is not an option next week when the Bengals host the Steelers.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 04:55:00 PM

Brandon LaFell (knee) was taken off the Bengals' final injury report for Week 12 against the Browns.

LaFell was limited to start the week but has practiced fully the past two days. Even in a good matchup, LaFell won't have much fantasy appeal this week against a Browns team that held him to 17 yards back in Week 4.

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

It's the same knee issue that's limited him the last two weeks. LaFell has a plus matchup with the Browns but should be avoided as a Week 12 streamer.

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.

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.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 12:43:00 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.
Thu, Nov 16, 2017 11:40:00 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.
Wed, Nov 15, 2017 03:49:00 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.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 05:49:00 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.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 04:31:00 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.
