Oakland Raiders WR Brandon LaFell (Achilles') was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 19.
Fantasy Spin: With LaFell out for the year, Marcell Ateman is thrust into the spotlight after catching four passes on five targets for 50 yards yesterday. He's worth claiming off waivers if available.
Oakland Raiders WR Brandon LaFell (Achilles') suffered an Achilles' injury against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11. Before exiting, he had two catches on three targets for 29 yards and a touchdown.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Brandon LaFell was able to bring in a touchdown in Sunday's win against the Cardinals. LaFell ended with only two catches for 29 yards and a touchdown but left early due to an Achilles injury. Early reports are suggesting this could be a serious, potentially season-ending injury for LaFell, which would be yet another blow to the Raiders' receiving core. Further tests are needed to confirm this, but it doesn't appear to look good for the veteran.
Oakland Raiders WR Brandon LaFell is in line to be the team's No. 1 wide receiver Sunday, Nov. 18, with fellow WRs Jordy Nelson (knee) and Martavis Bryant (knee) both expected to miss Week 11 with knee injuries.
Fantasy Spin: LaFell has paced all Oakland wideouts with 10 catches for 106 yards and a TD over the last three games and is a deeper-league desperation option today for teams hurting for WRs.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Brandon LaFell is set for an increased workload in Sunday's game versus the Cardinals. With both Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant both being ruled out for this game, LaFell should be one of the receivers to get the start. Over the past three weeks, LaFell has seen a total of 13 targets, which should be on the rise if the injuries continue. The matchup is a tough one, as the Cardinals have the 5th (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) against the pass.
Oakland Raiders WR Brandon LaFell checked in with four grabs and 47 yards on six targets in the Week 10 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Fantasy Spin: LaFell is starting to get more comfortable and more involved in the Oakland offense, stepping up to try and fill the void left by the departed Amari Cooper. Still, he remains nothing more than a WR5 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Brandon LaFell posted a modest stat line in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. LaFell had four catches for 47 yards both of which were tied for second best on the team. He has seen an expanded role in the offense since the Raiders traded Amari Cooper to the Cowboys and now could see an even larger role with the news that Martavis Bryant could miss some time due to a knee injury.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Brandon LaFell's role in the offense is unknown for this Thursday's game against the 49ers. LaFell caught his first passes and first touchdown of the season last week against the Colts, but we may not see that moving forward. With Amari Cooper being traded away there is certainly some upside for him to grab some targets in the passing game, but until he has a clear role, he brings little to no fantasy value.
Oakland Raiders WR Brandon LaFell's 46 snaps in Week 8 were six more than he had played the rest of the year combined, and offensive coordinator Greg Olson said he expects more of the same going forward. 'He stepped up for us last week and we foresee them doing that again in the future,' Olson said
Fantasy Spin: With Amari Cooper out of the mix, someone has to catch passes in Oakland. If you need receiver depth, LaFell could be worth adding in case he becomes one of Derek Carr's top targets the rest of the way.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Brandon LaFell made a splash with his first touchdown of the season in Sunday's loss to the Colts. This was Lafell's first game of the season, as he had been a scratch in every game leading up to this point. He ended with three catches for 29 yards and the one touchdown. With the Raiders trading Amari Cooper to the Cowboys, LaFell could be in line for a larger role moving forward. This is a situation which needs to be monitored, as no Raiders receiver has been super consistent this season.

Oakland Raiders WR Brandon LaFell is going to provide 'versatility and depth' for the offense, according to head coach Jon Gruden. 'We think he can come in and get ready quickly to make a contribution.'
The Oakland Raiders have signed wide receiver Brandon LaFell to a one-year, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. LaFell was cut in early August by the Bengals, after two seasons with the team, where he played every game. The Raiders had a need at wide receiver after they cut Martavis Bryant on Saturday, which should put LaFell in line to take over that role. He will likely be the number three receiver behind Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson.
Free-agent WR Brandon LaFell (Bengals) agreed to terms with the Oakland Raiders on Monday, Sept. 3.
