Raiders' Brandon LaFell: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaFell (back) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

LaFell was sidelined during the Raiders' season-opening loss to the Rams, and limited in practice to begin the week due to a back issue. The veteran seems healthy heading into Sunday's matchup against the Broncos, but stands to see limited offensive snaps even if he suits up.

Brandon LaFell: Cut loose by Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaFell will be granted his release by the Bengals, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

LaFell did earn his roster bonus in the spring, but a report emerged Wednesday that the veteran wideout wasn't necessarily a lock to make the 53-man roster. That apparently didn't sit well with LaFell, but it appears his release is something that has already been brewing behind the scenes. According to his agent Johnathan Feinsod, "We have been lobbying for his release for some time now and appreciate the Bengals granting our request." Now entering his age-31 season, LaFell will be free to catch on with an organization in need of receiver depth. He's been a plug-and-play fantasy option for most of his career, collecting 500 or more receiving yards in every season since 2011. Meanwhile, Cincinnati will move forward with A.J. Green, John Ross and Tyler Boyd atop the depth chart.

Bengals' Brandon LaFell: Not considered roster lock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis hinted that LaFell isn't a lock to make the 53-man roster, Katherine Terrell of reports. "Brandon LaFell has done a nice job," Lewis said. "He feels the heat. That's a competitive group of wide receivers. So we can only keep so many of them. They're going to be competitive that way and that's a good thing."

Despite receiving a $1 million roster bonus this spring, LaFell could lose his job before Week 1 if the Bengals like what they see from their young wide receivers, a group that includes John Ross, Tyler Boyd and Josh Malone. Given that he's never been much of a factor on special teams, LaFell won't have much value to the Bengals if he tumbles to fourth or fifth on the depth chart at wide receiver. The 31-year-old is scheduled for a non-guaranteed $2.55 million base salary in the second season of a two-year contract.

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

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