Brandon Lloyd scores twice for fantasy owners in Week 8

Jamie McDonald

Brandon Lloyd put points on the scoreboard twice against the Rams. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Lloyd caught two passes against the Rams in Week 8, and both passes went for touchdowns. This was his first multi-score game as a Patriot.

Lloyd was targeted four times by Tom Brady in London, finishing fourth on the team in this category. Fortunately he made the most of the two catches he hauled in.

Fantasy Impact: Normally when one of your receivers comes up with just two catches in a game, you'll be rather disappointed. That wasn't the case with Lloyd in Week 8. The fact that he's getting red zone looks bodes well for his fantasy value.

Lloyd finished Week 7 with a single reception for six yards, so his owners are probably a little relieved with this week's performance. He still can be boom or bust, though, with the Patriots offense having so many weapons.
