Bengals' Brandon LaFell: Getting $1 million bonus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaFell will collect a $1 million roster bonus, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

The Bengals surely would like to see some combination of John Ross (shoulder), Tyler Boyd and Josh Malone step up and push LaFell back to fourth or fifth on the depth chart, but it nonetheless makes sense to keep the 31-year-old around as insurance, given that he carries a modest 2018 base salary of $2.55 million, per OverTheCap. The team likely would've released LaFell before Sunday if it planned to do so at all, as his $1 million roster bonus now is guaranteed. He caught 64 of 106 targets for 862 yards and six scores in his first season with the Bengals, but then dropped off to a 52-548-3 receiving line on 88 targets last year. LaFell has only missed nine games in eight NFL seasons, and he's played all 16 games four of the past five years.

Bengals' Brandon LaFell: Could eventually be cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaFell may emerge as a candidate for release at some point this offseason, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

LaFell doesn't have any guaranteed money remaining on the two-year contract he signed last offseason, but it also isn't an especially cumbersome deal, and the Bengals still aren't quite sure what they have in the youthful trio of John Ross (shoulder), Tyler Boyd and Josh Malone. The team ideally would like to see their young wideouts step up and impress during the offseason, which in turn could make LaFell expendable before Week 1. The 31-year-old was inefficient with his opportunities in 2017, catching 52 of 88 targets for 548 yards (6.2 per target) and three touchdowns.

Bengals' Brandon LaFell: Out with a whimper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaFell had two catches for 35 yards on four targets in the Bengals' Week 17 win over the Ravens. He finished the season with 52 catches for 548 yards and three touchdowns.

Despite the Bengals spending a first-round draft pick on a wide receiver (John Ross) this year and a second-round pick on Tyler Boyd last year, LaFell remained the Bengals' #2 option in the passing game, albeit with diminishing returns. His yards per reception dropped a full three yards, from 13.5 to 10.5, and his touchdowns were cut in half. If he sticks around next year, look for his reps to be cut in favor of Boyd and Ross.

Bengals' Brandon LaFell: Logs 45-yard grab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaFell caught two of six targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 34-7 loss to the Vikings.

LaFell's team-leading receiving total came mostly courtesy of a 45-yard catch. Little went right for Cincinnati's offense besides that play, as starting quarterback Andy Dalton threw for only 113 yards and backup AJ McCarron added just 19 more after taking over in the fourth quarter.

Bengals' Brandon LaFell: Finds paydirt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaFell caught three of six pass attempts for 24 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Bears.

The 14-yard touchdown catch capped off the Bengals' only scoring drive of the day and gave them the lead briefly. But the Bears' defense smothered A.J. Green and LaFell the rest of the way, leaving the 31-year-old with his worst yardage total since Week 4. With Green likely to draw the attention of Xavier Rhodes in Week 15 at Minnesota, LaFell should see a few more open looks.
