Carolina Panthers wide receiver Brandon LaFell (foot) missed practice again on Thursday, potentially on his way to missing a second straight game. LaFell had high expectations coming into 2012 as a potential number two receiver opposite of Steve Smith but has just 34 catches for 577 yards and four touchdowns in eleven games.
He was on a good streak before the injury, totaling eight catches and 167 yards with two touchdowns in the two games before injury, but now looks questionable to return by the Panthers Week 15 matchup against the San Diego Chargers.
Fantasy Take: With any questions regarding the foot and two missed practices already, LaFell doesn't look like a good WR3 play this week and likely won't help you get to the fantasy championship. It could mean more targets for tight end Greg Olsen though, who has a career-high 691 yards this season.
Cam Newton should also be fine without LaFell.
