Brandon LaFell finished Week 3 with just one reception. We break down the fantasy implications.

After two straight weeks of solid receiving numbers, Brandon LaFell fell off the map in Week 3 against the Giants. The third-year receiver caught just one pass for 27 yards on three targets.

Fantasy Impact: LaFell looked like a surefire starter just two weeks into 2012. He tallied up nine catches for 155 yards and a touchdown before Thursday night's matchup. He wasn't able to make an impact, though the Panthers were playing from behind, so the game plan likely went out the window at that point. LaFell should put up better numbers going forward, but he is susceptible to off games like this one.
