Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 12 vs DEN (9 / 4 / 36 / 0 rec)

Though he was targeted a host of times, Brandon LaFell had a mediocre day. Many of his targets were deep balls, which was curious given that he's not a burner and didn't have defensive backs soundly beat on any of the plays. He did narrowly miss one or two of them, but all in all, it was a disappointing day given the potential role he had.

2015 Week 11 vs BUF (8 / 4 / 66 / 0 rec)

Though he had opportunity, Lafell actually appeared to be benched for a part of the game against the Bills, and was largely ineffective, struggling to get separation. Part of the blame for his stat line is because the Patriots allowed Tom Brady no time to throw and Lafell tends to run more intermediate routes. Still, it was a mediocre day, but with a potential Danny Amendola injury, Lafell may be thrust into the #1 receiver role.

2015 Week 10 vs NYG (6 / 2 / 66 / 0 rec)

There were two key plays for LaFell, who had a relatively quiet day. The first was a defensive pass interference from the 4 in the endzone, potentially robbing him of a touchdown. The second was a 54 yard deep connection that actually saw a defender get fingertips on the ball in the air. LaFell still managed to concentrate and catch the ball. Going forward, LaFell will play a ton of snaps with the injury to Julian Edelman

2015 Week 9 vs WAS (9 / 5 / 102 / 0 rec)

LaFell continues to get acclimated to the offense, and looks to be over the rust he displayed just a couple games ago. He actually led the Patriots in targets, and barely missed a deep touchdown because Tom Brady wasn't able to step into a throw. The play still resulted in a deep gain of nearly 50 yards, but LaFell has a sizeable role going forward.

2015 Week 8 vs MIA (7 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec)

Still rounding into form after being activated off the PuP, LaFell's biggest contribution may have been a block that helped Rob Gronkowski score on a 47 yard touchdown play. He also had a nice 25 yard catch where he beat his defender on a go route. Beyond that, LaFell was 4th in the pecking order in terms of catching passes, but the good news is that Aaron Dobson stole less snaps than last week.

2015 Week 7 vs NYJ (8 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)

Ugly, ugly, ugly. Brandon LaFell committed 6 drops against the Jets in his first game of the 2015 season, as his rust was on full display. Some of the passes would have been tough catches, but some of them were stone clankers right off his hands. On the plus side for him, LaFell could have had a deep touchdown, but was overthrown on the play. LaFell should get better as the season goes on, but the rust may take a couple more weeks to shake.
