2015 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Nov-11-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (Nov. 11): LaFell is finally back from injury and should be rostered in all leagues. He can perform as a chain-moving flex play. The occasional game with double-digit targets and a trip to the end zone are a reasonable expectation for the second-half of the season.
LaFell's first season in New England started with no catches on six targets in Week 1 and then no targets in Week 2. His breakthrough moment came during a Week 4 blowout by the Kansas City Chiefs when he hooked up with Brady for a 44-yard score. He finished that game with six catches for 119 yards and that TD. From Week 4 on, Brandon caught 70 of 105 targets for 907 yards and seven touchdowns. He caught just 13 passes for 119 yards in three playoff games, but he did find the end zone twice. With a year in the Patriots' system under his belt, LaFell should continue to improve as long as he can hold off Aaron Dobson. Last year, he was fantasy No. 22 WR. He set career highs across the board and displayed better hands than in previous seasons. Yet I don't trust that he'll offer a repeat in 2015. Other options on this team should be more involved in the passing game this season. I consider LaFell to be only a midrange WR3 on draft day.
