Although head coach Ron Rivera was hopeful about his receiver being ready for Week 15, LaFell is not off to a good start. On Sunday, the Panthers will go on the road to face the San Diego Chargers.
Fantasy Analysis: During the part of the season, LaFell showed potential when WR Steve Smith was getting locked up. With this injury, and the postseason underway, LaFell is no longer relevant in fantasy leagues.
At best, LaFell was a risk as a low-end flex option in PPR leagues. However, Steve Smith has been heating up after a slow season, so he could provide a strong push for owners in the playoffs.
