Patriots Beat: It's 'unclear' when Brandon LaFell will return to action

Mass Live - [Full Article]

It's unclear when Patriots WR Brandon LaFell will return to camp. He missed all of OTAs and minicamp, but told reporters on July 9 that he is out of his walking boot.

Fantasy Impact: 

Aaron Dobson is healthy and getting extra opportunities with LaFell out. LaFell finished as the #22 WR in both standard and PPR formats, but didn’t catch a single pass in the first two games. He began to see starter-type snaps in Week 4, and was the #15 receiver in standard formats (#14 in PPR) over the final 13 games of the season. In fact, counting the postseason, LaFell racked up 87-1072-9 in his last 16 games. That would have been good enough for a #13 finish in both formats. We believe that it's his job to lose, as long as he's healthy.
