Brandon LaFell never lived up to the promise he showed coming out of LSU during his time with the Panthers, but the expectations aren't quite as high with the Patriots who excel in getting the most out of their players. We expect him to make the roster, given the money he is making, but the question becomes "how many targets?" LaFell will be battling with second-year player Aaron Dobson for the "X" spot, which could improve his production. He ran routes out of the slot a lot in Carolina and was ill-suited to the role. If LaFell wins the job, we expect WR4 or WR 5 production. There is a chance his role is more limited though, and he is beaten out by Dobson, in which case he won't be worth a roster spot at all.

Patriots | Josh Boyce well behind others (Sat Aug 23, 01:41 AM) - New England Patriots WR Josh Boyce did not play an offensive snap until there was 1:26 remaining in the third quarter of the preseason game Friday, Aug. 22, against the Carolina Panthers. He is considered to be decisively behind WRs Kenbrell Thompkins, Aaron Dobson (foot), Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell on the depth chart.

Our View: Let's be frank here--Boyce just hasn't impressed as a pro. Dynasty owners need to take note of this situation.
