Brandon LaFell Fantasy News

Friday, December 2, 2016, 6:13pm

Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. Green isn’t expected to return this week as he returns from a Grade 2 hamstring tear. Dr. David Chao (@ProFootballDoc) expects a 4-6 week recovery for that type of tear, which means the best case scenario is that Green returns for the Bengals’ Week 15 game against the Steelers. Tyler Boyd and Brandon LaFell should continue to see a bump in targets.

Pats Beat: Tom Brady 'has adored' WR Chris Hogan since the offseason

Friday, October 14, 2016, 12:57pm

Boston Herald - [Full Article]

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald was asked to compare Chris Hogan and former Patriot Brandon LaFell.

Hogan has 12 catches for 236 yards and one touchdown, including four catches for a career-high 114 yards in his debut with Brady. Hogan won’t approach LaFell’s 2014 numbers, but that’s also not fair considering the quarterback situation in Weeks 1-4. But can Hogan average 4.6 catches and 60 yards per game while scoring six touchdowns to keep pace with LaFell’s career-best contributions? That doesn’t seem completely unreasonable, but Hogan doesn’t need to post those numbers with the amount of talent around him to be successful. I think very highly of Hogan, and I’ve been led to believe Brady has adored him since the offseason.

Fantasy Impact:

Hogan's 4-114 against the Browns was a good start, but his five targets represented 12.5% of Brady's pass attempts in Week 5. To put this in perspective, in 2014 LaFell garnered 19.5% of the team's targets, so (small sample size alert) Hogan is currently working with a smaller share of the targets, by a significant margin. Consider Hogan a spot-start worthy WR4 going forward, but unless he sees more consistent targets (or manages to maintain this excellent per catch efficiency), he won't be a steady fantasy contributor.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 1. It looks like Hogan has earned a starting job. He could post 2014 Brandon LaFell-type numbers (74-953-7) if things break his way. We’re expecting him to play after being “full” all week.
