Domenik Hixon injury update: Hamstring issue limits already low fantasy value

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Domenik Hixon isn't 100 percent with his hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Domenik Hixon (hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bills. He was limited in practice on Wednesday and was a full participant on Thursday and Wednesday.

He missed the opener against the stout Seahawks D and should make his Panthers debut. Hixon has dealt with multiple ACL tears and has struggled staying on the field. Last season was one of his best of his career, playing in 13 games with 39 catches, 567 yards and two TDs with the Giants.

Fantasy impact: There still isn't a player on the Panthers that has grasped the WR2 spot next two Steve Smith. Brandon LaFell has been given every opportunity and hasn't exactly capitalized on it to this point. Hixon is still unlikely to receive a full load of snaps, but he could be worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues. He is outside of the top-80 receivers for this week until further notice, though.
