  Raiders | Brandon LaFell lands on IR    Mon Nov 19, 04:49 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Brandon LaFell (Achilles') was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 19.

Footballguys view: Bad news for LaFell here. He's a free agent in 2019 and the veteran receiver might have suffered a career-ending injury with this Achilles' injury. He may struggle to be ready for the start of the regular season in 2019 and might find it difficult to find work even if he was fully healthy.

  Raiders | Brandon LaFell to bolster WR group    Thu Sep 6, 09:22 PM

  Raiders | Oakland agrees with Brandon LaFell    Mon Sep 3, 12:50 PM

Free-agent WR Brandon LaFell (Bengals) agreed to terms with the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: LaFell could win the no.3 wide receiver job for the Raiders eventually. They have Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson at the top of the depth chart but there are questions behind those veterans. LaFell, coming off a season where he caught 52 passes for 548 yards and three touchdowns, should only be on a roster in super deep leagues.

  Bengals | Brandon LaFell cut    Thu Aug 2, 10:07 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell was granted his release Thursday, Aug. 2, according to his agent, Jonathan Feinsod.

Footballguys view: LaFell couldn't stick in a group who, aside from A.J. Green, really isn't impressive. We can't see him having much of a role anywhere else even if he gets a job. He's not worth rostering.

  Bengals | Brandon LaFell sticking around?    Sun Mar 18, 09:52 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell had a $1 million roster bonus due Sunday, March 18.

Footballguys view: The Bengals may not use LaFell much in 2018, but it must've made sense for them to keep the veteran receiver around for depth. Behind superstar A.J. Green, the Bengals have some young receivers with upside like Tyler Boyd or John Ross. LaFell is veteran insurance and not much of a fantasy factor.

  Bengals | Brandon LaFell could be let go    Sat Mar 10, 12:55 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell could be released this offseason in part because the team would create $4 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: It's not all about the money. The team could also cut LaFell in order to give more playing time to the younger receivers on the roster.

  Bengals | Brandon LaFell upgraded to limited    Thu Nov 16, 06:23 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) was upgraded to limited at practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

Footballguys view: As bad as this passing offense has played, LaFell hasn't helped much. If you are in a bind with a bye week dilemma, LaFell can give you WR6/Flex possibilities. Scour the waiver wire and see if there a better option though.

  Bengals | Brandon LaFell productive in Week 10    Sun Nov 12, 05:34 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell caught six passes for 95 yards and one touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in Week 10.

Footballguys view: LaFell's touchdown came against busted coverage. The Bengals pass offense simply isn't good enough to support two fantasy receivers, especially next week against Denver, although LaFell can serve as emergency depth on your bench down the stretch.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Nov. 9.

Footballguys view: Lafell hasn't been much of a factor this year, and if it's not a guy named AJ Green, there's really no Bengals receiver you want in your lineup this weekend.
