|It might surprise some fantasy owners to know that Brandon LaFell finished higher in fantasy points per game in 2014 than potential studs like Brandin Cooks, Jordan Matthews and Sammy Watkins. In fact, his 9.2 fantasy points per game were just behind fellow wide receiver and number one wide receiving option Julian Edelman. LaFell has been dealing with an undisclosed injury throughout training camp which is why is ADP continues to hover in the mid-ninth round in standard scoring 12-team leagues. He is not a flashy player and owners who take LaFell in the late round of drafts will likely not receive much in the form of compliments from their fellow owners, but adding a guy who can provide 70 catches and seven TDs as a WR three is a solid move.
| Edelman limited in practice|

|FOXBORO, Mass. — New England Patriots fans and fantasy football owners can breathe a deep sigh of relief. Julian Edelman is fine.
The wide receiver popped up on the Patriots’ injury report as limited with a knee ailment Wednesday. Edelman finished practice and the injury is “nothing to be concerned about,” a source told NESN.com.
FFToday's Take: Julian Edelman's knee injury may not be serious but he could see his targets decrease slightly after the Patriots welcomed back Brandon LaFell in Week 8. Nonetheless, he's a surefire starter in all fantasy formats for Week 9 against the Redskins.
| Brandon LaFell returns to practice|

|FOXBORO, Mass. — Brandon LaFell’s 21-day window to come off the PUP list began Wednesday. The New England Patriots wide receiver returned to practice after beginning the season on PUP with a foot injury. LaFell must be activated to the 53-man roster before playing in a game.
FFToday's Take: Tom Brady may be getting another target back in the fold as Brandon LaFell inches closer to making his season debut. The team has three weeks to activate him from the PUP list and all indications point to that happening sooner than later. Snatch him up in all formats where he is available.

FFToday's Take: Since the Patriots have a bye in Week 4, the earliest LaFell will see action is Week 8 against the Dolphins. With LaFell's injury and the reports of Reggie Wayne asking for his release, New England is sure to be on the hunt for wideouts in the next 24 hours.
