LaFell caught seven of 11 targets for 67 yards Sunday against the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

LaFell once again functioned as quarterback Andy Dalton's No. 1 wide receiver with A.J. Green (hamstring) out, leading the team in both targets and receptions. The increased role allowed him to catch 64 balls for 862 yards and six touchdowns this season, but the 30-year-old LaFell will have a hard time replicating that success next year with Green healthy.

LaFell snagged six of 10 targets for 130 yards and a score in Saturday's loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

LaFell's big contribution came early in the fourth quarter on an 86-yard catch-and-run in which LaFell caught the quick slant and sped off down field. After hopping between hot and cold for much of the season, LaFell has topped 90 yards receiving in three of the five games since A.J. Green went down with an injury. Though not a consistent threat, LaFell, much like he did in New England last year, has shown his 2017 employer that he is a viable big-play threat provided he's a complement as opposed to a go-to weapon.

LaFell reeled in seven of nine passes for 91 yards during Sunday's 24-20 defeat to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

LaFell tripled up all of his teammates in terms of targets, which explains his standing as the only Bengal to surpass 20 receiving yards on the day. During A.J. Green's three-game absence due to a hamstring injury, LaFell combined for 15 receptions, 21 targets, 208 yards, and one touchdown. Respectable numbers in their own right, LaFell may be able to sustain such production if Green, who was able to practice on a limited basis this week, improves enough to be cleared for game action. No matter the makeup of Cincinnati's receiving corps, LaFell has a difficult road matchup incoming against the Texans' staunch pass defense.

After being limited Wednesday, LaFell (knee) practiced fully Thursday, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

LaFell's Week 15 status is not in question, which is more than can be said for fellow wideout A.J. Green, who is bouncing back from a hamstring injury and remained limited at practice Thursday.

LaFell (knee) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The same applies to A.J. Green (hamstring) and once the Bengals' top wideout is able to return to action, the fantasy upside of LaFell and Tyler Boyd figures to take a hit.

LaFell secured three catches (six targets) for 22 yards in Sunday's tilt with the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

After catching six balls for 95 yards and a score against a tough Eagles' defense in Week 13, LaFell was silenced by the Browns on Sunday. Tyler Boyd and Tyler Eifert drew most of Andy Dalton's attention, as LaFell's six targets were his fewest since Nov. 14 against the Giants. It's still unknown if A.J. Green (knee) will be able to play in Week 15, but if he does, LaFell's fantasy value will take a hit.

LaFell (knee) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

With A.J. Green still dealing with a hamstring injury, LaFell -- who was on the field for all but four of the Bengals' snaps on offense in Week 13 -- is in a good spot this weekend against the 0-12 Browns. To date, the Cleveland defense has allowed a league-high 28 passing TDs, including three to wideouts in the team's last outing, a Nov. 27 loss to the Giants.

LaFell (knee) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

We suspect that LaFell's practice limitations were maintenance-related, with the veteran wideout having turn in a limited session last Wednesday as well, before working fully Thursday and being removed from the Bengals' injury report by the end of the week. With A.J. Green still sidelined, LaFell is in a good spot this weekend, going up against the 0-12 Browns, who have allowed a league-high 28 passing TDs to date.

LaFell caught five of seven targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 32-14 win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

With A.J. Green (hamstring) out once again, LaFell stepped up to lead the team in targets, catches and yards while securing an eight-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. This performance established a season high in yardage for LaFell, who will have an excellent chance to build on it next week against the hapless Browns.

LaFell was held to three catches for 38 yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

This minimal production came despite LaFell getting nine targets. The problem is that he just can't gain much separation, especially without A.J. Green on the field to draw the attention of the top defenders opposite the Bengals.
