    Patriots' Brandon LaFell: Tops 100 receiving yards Sunday

    LaFell caught five of nine targets for a team-high 102 yards in Sunday's 27-10 win over Washington. In his third game of the season since returning from a foot injury, LaFell continued to improve on his production. With his health and role in the Patriots' offense now re-established, LaFell is worth a look in deeper formats, though the continued presence of TE Rob Gronkowski and fellow WR Julian Edelman ensures that he'll have plenty of competition for passing targets on any given week.

    Patriots' Brandon LaFell: Shows some rust in return to action

    LaFell -- who played 30 of 32 offensive snaps in the first half of Sunday's win over the Jets, per ESPN's Mike Reiss, displayed some rust in his first game back from a foot injury, while catching just two of eight targets for 25 yards in the contest. While it's a boost to the Patriots' offense that LaFell is back, his 2015 season debut was marked by multiple drops. He'll look to bounce back in short order though, with the Patriots back in action Thursday night against the Dolphins.

    Patriots WR Danny Amendola catches eight passes Sunday

    Patriots wideout Danny Amendola caught eight of nine targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in a win Sunday over the Jets. That's two straight strong efforts for Amendola, who could potentially lose some looks to Brandon LaFell - who made his season debut Sunday - once he's up to speed.

    Patriots WR Brandon LaFell set to rejoin offense Sunday

    Adam Schefter of ESPN suggests that "depending on his conditioning," Patriots wideout Brandon LaFell "should play at least half" the plays on offense Sunday against the Jets. With fellow receiver Julian Edelman a candidate to be covered by Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, LaFell could see his share of targets in his season debut, thought it remains to be seen how close to a full workload he'll receive, which makes him a hit or miss Fantasy lineup option this week.

    Patriots' Brandon LaFell: Activated from PUP list

    The Patriots activated LaFell (foot) from the PUP list Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Leaving a spot open on the 53-man roster, the Patriots may have tipped their hand with the veteran wideout's recovery from a foot injury, especially after he returned to practice Wednesday. LaFell emerged this week unscathed and will thus be available for Sunday's contest against the Jets, potentially serving as the No. 3 threat in the passing game behind tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Julian Edelman.

    Patriots' Brandon LaFell: Week 7 status TBD

    Coach Bill Belichick indicated Friday that a decision whether or not to activate LaFell (foot, PUP list) for Sunday's game against the Jets has yet to be made, CSN New England reports. "We'll see," Belichick said with regard to the Week 7 status of LaFell, who resumed practicing this week. "We've got to, like we always do, kind of look at things after today's practice, after Friday, and sometimes it goes longer than that. We'll just have to see." It's worth noting that the team has just 52 players on its 53-man roster, so the Patriots wouldn't have to waive anyone to fit LaFell on their roster, though it's also possible that the team could add an offensive lineman to the mix, with that unit currently banged up. Once LaFell is up to speed, he figures to re-emerge as one of QB Tom Brady's key passing targets behind WR Julian Edelman and TE Rob Gronkowski.

    Patriots WR Brandon LaFell back at practice Wednesday

    Patriots wideout Brandon LaFell (foot) returned to practice Wednesday, per Mike Reiss of ESPN. Now that he has returned, the team has a three-week window with which to work with in the case of LaFell, who remains on the team's PUP list until the Patriots officially add him to their 53-man roster. At this stage, it remains unclear how close the wideout is to a return to game action, but his presence on the field Wednesday suggests that such an outcome is on the horizon.

    Patriots WR Brandon LaFell ditches walking boot

In 16 games for the Patriots last season, LaFell caught 74 passes for 953 yards and seven touchdowns, which were all career highs.
