Patriots WR Brandon LaFell is beginning to feel more comfortable in the Patriots offense after feeling admittedly 'shell-shocked' during OTAs.
LaFell has a good chance to carve out a nice role for himself in this offense. He'll play behind Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola but sits ahead of Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson right now and should see a fair number of targets each week and could be a solid red zone target. Of course, if Rob Gronkowski is in there, then that will obviously cut into the red zone work, but given that Gronk's health, and Amendola's for that matter, are no lock, LaFell could see steady opportunities.

Raisel Iglesias will start for the Reds on Sunday.
Iglesias has been used out of the bullpen twice since his last start 10 days ago, and has given up three earned runs in three innings in that time. That being said, Iglesias was fairly solid in his two starts this season, going 1-0 with a 2.77 ERA and a 9/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 13 innings pitched. Analysis: Brad Costilo
