Brandon LaFell Is No Longer A Fantasy Sleeper

Brandon LaFell cemented his fantasy value. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon LaFell made his case to be an every-week starter with his wonderful game of six catches for 90 yards and a rush for 25 yards.

Analysis: If you're going on just standard-league fantasy points, LaFell had a similar outing last week thanks to his TD against the Bucs. While he didn't score this week, the eight targets were an improvement and the Saints didn't blow coverages like the Bucs did. He led the team in targets and in receptions even though Steve Smith was out there for most of the day. The LSU product will be in a lot of fantasy lineups next week against the Giants on Sunday Night Football because of two words: Corey Webster.
