Brandon LaFell doubtful for Sunday as fantasy value sinks again

David Banks

Brandon LaFell is doubtful for Week 9 as his concussion syndromes have lingered. We break down the fantasy implications.

Carolina Panthers WR Brandon LaFell (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. LaFell suffered the concussion in Week 8 against the Bears, but stayed in the game. He was later held out of practice this week after suffering headaches, suggesting that he's very unlikely to get medical clearance to suit up.

LaFell has just 20 catches for 367 yards and two TDs on the season.

Fantasy Impact: LaFell had been coming on in recent weeks after struggling at the start of the season, but the former second-rounder has been a disappointment this year, and there's no telling when he will return.

Fantasy owners should continue leaving him on the bench for the foreseeable future.
