New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Jan. 23, and is questionable for the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Nothing new here as LaFell, who caught a career-high 74 passes for 953 and 7 TDs during the regular season, has been listed as questionable for most of the season -- as has most of his fellow skill-position players on the Pats.

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 16, and is listed as probable for the AFC Championship Game.
Huddle Up: LaFell, who caught five of his seven targets for 62 yards and a TD in the Pats' divisional-round win over the Ravens, has been dealing with nagging injuries but figures to be good to go by Sunday. The Pats, though, figure to try and replicate their ground-oriented success from their last two wins over the Colts, and LaFell isn't going to receive as many looks if they're successful.

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe) said he expects to play in the Divisional Round playoff game even though he is dealing with shoulder and toe injuries.
Huddle Up: LaFell easily hit career highs with 119 targets, 74 receptions, 953 yards and seven TDs this season and is certainly a candidate for fantasy success Saturday given the lingering questions surrounding the Ravens' secondary.

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell had a team-high six receptions for a game-high 119 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Sept. 29. It was LaFell's first TD with the Patriots.
Huddle Up: To this point Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski were the only members of New England's passing game worthy of fantasy attention. However, with Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins consistently healthy scratches and LaFell playing well, he may slip onto the fantasy radar.

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell and Kenbrell Thompkins each posted touchdown grabs in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Friday, Aug. 15. LaFell was targeted three times, catching two for 29 yards and the score, while Thompkins had three receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown while being targeted four times.
Huddle Up: While Tom Brady praised Thompkins after the game, it's still up in the air who will emerge, if anyone, in this battle. With Aaron Dobson (foot) still out, Thompkins has made the most of his pre-season starting opportunities. But the spot is still likely Dobson's to be had if he can get healthy.

Huddle Up: LaFell hit career highs with 49 receptions and 5 TDs last season in Carolina and now figures to be nor worse than Tom Brady's No. 3 or 4 top target (behind TE Rob Gronkowski, WR Julian Edelman and RB Shane Vereen).

The Carolina Panthers likely will allow impending free-agent WR Brandon LaFell and CB Captain Munnerlyn to test the free-agent this offseason. The team could look to re-sign both to shorter, team-friendly deals at some point.
Huddle Up: LaFell, a 3rd-round pick in 2010, hit career highs with 49 catches (for 627 yards) and 5 TDs, but it sounds like the Panthers would rather bring back Ted Ginn Jr. and add another wideout rather than look for more improvement out of LaFell.
