Brandon LaFell injury update: Fantasy value low with questionable status

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

Brandon LaFell hasn't practiced all week, making him a risky option in fantasy this week.

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Brandon LaFell is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

LaFell is dealing with a toe injury and missed practice all week. He is very unlikely to take the field for the Panthers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Brandon LaFell has been an average fantasy receiver this season, but it may be time to release him from your fantasy roster at this point. This toe injury has potential to linger, and there isn't much upside for him the rest of the season.

Steve Smith and Greg Olsen stand to benefit from the increased targets. The Falcons, however, present a tough matchup for the Carolina passing game.
