Brandon Lloyd seeing fewer snaps, fantasy value on the decline

Jim Rogash

Brandon Lloyd saw a limited role in Week 11. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Lloyd only caught four passes for 45 yards against the Colts in Week 11. He was in for 34 of the Patriots 61 offensive snaps on Sunday, putting him behind Julian Edelman in terms of playing time.

Lloyd was targeted seven times, the same number as Edelman and Rob Gronkowksi.

Fantasy Impact: The Patriots are scaling back Lloyd's workload lately, but he's not an afterthought in the offense. However, Lloyd isn't producing impressive fantasy numbers like many believed he would prior to the season.

Gronk is out now, so Lloyd might be more involved with one of Tom Brady's main weapons out. Aaron Hernandez is expected back soon, though, which may just counteract that thought. Lloyd looks like a WR3 at best.
