Brandon LaFell could start for Patriots

ESPN - [Full Article]

From a pure build standpoint, Brandon LaFell has some Aaron Dobson in him. But while Dobson holds the speed and upside edge, LaFell is more sturdily built and played a different role in Carolina. Given the presence of Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and even Josh Boyce, LaFell may wind up playing more of a perimeter receiving role. His size, field awareness on the sideline, and ability to use his reach to out leverage defenders make him a possibility to start at the “X” or split end position.

Fantasy Impact: 

We're expecting Dobson to start in that spot if healthy, but he's coming off foot surgery, which may have prompted this signing by the Patriots.
