Carolina free-agent WR Brandon LaFell is visiting today with the New England Patriots.
Although it wasn't spectacular, LaFell did have a breakout year in 2013 and could now be on the move. The Patriots would be a great fir for LaFell, who has the making to be a solid secondary target for Tom Brady. If he does sign with the Patriots, he should be owned in but the shallowest of fantasy leagues. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
