Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) took full practice reps again Friday. LaFell should be producing with John Ross and Tyler Eifert out, but he’s seen just five total targets in the last two games.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Brandon LaFell has had success in the NFL and will be given opportunities again with Cincinnati in 2017. He caught 64 passes last season for 862 yards and 6 touchdowns. No doubt he will get on the field, especially early in the season.

Fantasy Downside

The Bengals are very excited about rookie John Ross and he will no doubt take catches away from LaFell and Tyler Boyd. Plus, if A.J. Green stays healthy, LaFell's numbers won't get close to what he did last year, as a lot of that production came when Green was hurt. The numbers looked decent last year, but it will really be tough for him to come close to repeating them.

2017 Bottom Line

LaFell is a late-round draft pick. If you can get him as your fifth receiver, he could be a sleeper if Ross struggles to adjust to the NFL. But LaFell's production will probably be cut in half unless Green or Ross get hurt.
