Brandon Lloyd injury update: Risky fantasy play down the stretch

Rich Schultz

Brandon Lloyd is questionable for Week 13 against the Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots WR Brandon Lloyd (thigh) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. As per usual Patriots protocol, the questionable tag and limited practice are just a smokescreen, and there is little danger of him missing the game. He's fully expected to suit up.

Lloyd has 49 catches for 551 yards and three TDs on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Lloyd will play, but how much will he produce? He's been too inconsistent for fantasy owners to trust on a week-to-week basis, and has found the endzone in only two games this year.

I can't recommend starting him as anything more than a low-end WR3/WR4 as we head into the fantasy playoffs.
