LaFell did not participate in either Wednesday or Thursday's practices, but got in a full session on Friday. He should suit up for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders.
Fantasy Analysis: LaFell would be a horrible gamble by fantasy players in the finals. Despite the fact that he is not 100-percent, the Panthers offense has struggled to be consistent.
Even against the Raiders, LaFell would be a low-end flex at best. He is not an advisable fantasy play this late in the season, given the circumstances. Keep him on your bench for the remainder of 2012.
