Shark Bites

Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) has been placed on the PUP list to open the season.  That knocks him out for at least the first 6 games.  New England still hasn't provided any details on LaFell's injury, but he's been sidelined the entire offseason.  He's not a lock to make an impact at any point this season and isn't worth rostering outside of deep leagues.  The Patriots will begin the season with Danny Amendola, Aaron Dobson and Chris Harper behind Julian Edelman, who is still dealing with a leg injury.

The Bengals have released WR Brandon LaFell. Cincinnati's #2 WR the past 2 seasons, LaFell was being pushed down the depth chart by the team's younger receivers, namely John Ross. LaFell's agent admitted that he'd be "lobbying" for his client's release. We'll see where LaFell lands, but he's unlikely to be a 2018 fantasy factor. Meanwhile, the door is open for a breakout season for Ross.

Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) is active for today’s game against the Broncos. The knee shouldn’t be a concern, but Denver’s strong secondary makes him a low-end WR4 for Week 11.

Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Broncos. He put in a full practice on Friday and should play. LaFell is coming off a big game vs. Tennessee but isn’t a recommended fantasy starter vs. Denver’s talented secondary.

The Bengals and WR Brandon LaFell have agreed to a new deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The 30-year-old was a steady presence for Cincinnati last year, hauling in 64 balls for 862 yards and a team-high 6 TDs. He ranked 34th among WRs in PPR points and 33rd in non-PPR. LaFell certainly benefitted, though, from WR A.J. Green and TE Tyler Eifert missing a combined 14 games. If those guys stay healthier in 2017, LaFell's numbers figure to take a hit.

Bengals WR Brandon LaFell is back at practice less than a week after tearing a ligament in his hand. He's expected to play in Cincinnati's 3rd preseason game. Opting against surgery, LaFell will attempt to play through the injury. We'll see how it impacts a guy who's struggled with drops even when at 100%. Insider Paul Dehner believes LaFell will open the season as the Bengals' #2 WR before giving way to rookie Tyler Boyd "somewhere in the Week 6-8 range." We'd rather take a shot on Boyd late in fantasy drafts, but neither guy will be a starting fantasy option early on this season.
