Brandon LaFell (WR, CIN) – 17% Owned
Following A.J. Green’s injury, Brandon LaFell has seen a steep increase in targets, which led to his solid Week 12 performance against the Eagles. In that game, he caught 5-of-7 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown. Over the past three weeks, LaFell has averaged over 8 targets a game, something that won’t change until Green’s return.
While there are rumblings that return could come as soon as this week, the Bengals are in no position for the playoffs and would only be hurting themselves bringing Green back at anything less than 100%. That should give LaFell plenty of opportunities Sunday against the winless Browns and their pass defense that ranks sixth in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers this season.
