Carolina Panthers WR Brandon LaFell (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 23, and is listed as probable for Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should see LaFell as a low-end No. 2 wide receiver or a flex option this week.
Tue, 22 Oct 2013 13:04:17 -0700
Carolina Panthers WR Brandon LaFell (knee) practiced in full Tuesday, Oct. 22.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 14:33:30 -0700
Carolina Panthers WR Brandon LaFell (knee) was limited in practice Monday, Oct. 21.
Fantasy Tip: There is no official update on the severity of LaFell's injury yet, but we're guessing it's unlikely to keep him from playing in Week 8 Thursday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fri, 11 Oct 2013 19:58:56 -0700
Carolina Panthers WRs Brandon LaFell and Steve Smith had drops that would have been big plays or touchdowns in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Fantasy Tip: The drops have hurt the effectiveness of QB Cam Newton, who is often blamed for the struggles of the team, but he cannot catch the balls he throws. In addition, Newton's pass protection has been abysmal. Until things improve in Charlotte, Newton is best used as a QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

Carolina Panthers WR Brandon LaFell hauled in three balls for 53 yards, including a pair of touchdowns, in the Week 3 win against the New York Giants.
Fantasy Tip: LaFell might be a hot property off the waiver wire this week for fantasy owners, but keep in mind that the Panthers have a bye in Week 4.
Tue, 20 Aug 2013 13:03:06 -0700
Carolina Panthers WR Armanti Edwards (hamstring) has impressed the coaching staff in training camp and the preseason and has been listed as the third receiver behind WRs Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell. WRs Domenik Hixon, David Gettis and Ted Ginn Jr. are battling with Edwards. Edwards spent some time dealing with a hamstring injury which kept him out of the team's second preseason game. The door has reopened for Gettis because of the ailment, and he was impressive with five catches for 82 yards in the second preseason game. It now looks like a wide open race for the No. 3 spot.
Fantasy Tip: Gettis might be the most intriguing receiver in the lot, but none of these options should be drafted.
Wed, 31 Jul 2013 09:11:01 -0700
Carolina Panthers WR David Gettis has struggled with injuries in his career, and he appears to be slower than previous seasons so far during training camp. He is behind starting WRs Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell on the depth chart, and newcomers WRs Ted Ginn Jr. and Domenik Hixon appear to be ahead of him as well.
Fantasy Tip: Gettis might be battling Armanti Edwards for the No. 5 receiver job, and Edwards is versatile because of his special teams work. The fan favorite Gettis might be soon looking for work unless he shines significantly in the coming days. Avoid him for fantasy purposes right now.
Thu, 13 Jun 2013 10:25:01 -0700
Carolina Panthers WRs Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell are locked in at the top two spots. Ted Ginn Jr. has stood out during minicamp, catching several deep passes from Cam Newton. Armanti Edwards looks more comfortable playing the position. Ginn and Edwards will compete with Kealoha Pilares, Joe Adams and David Gettis for roster spots and reps.
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to trust Ginn finally developing into a full-fledged catcher, but there's big-play potential here in what could be a surprisingly productive passing system. Greg Olsen's presence limits the availability of secondary targets, but waiver-wire scroungers in deep leagues will watch this play out during the season.
Sat, 09 Mar 2013 17:34:36 -0800
The Carolina Panthers might show an interest in free-agent WR Domenik Hixon (Giants), a player general manager David Gettleman is familiar with from his time with the New York Giants. If signed, he could push WR Brandon LaFell for the No. 2 receiver job.
Thu, 31 Jan 2013 11:49:38 -0800
Carolina Panthers WR Brandon LaFell will have his 2013 base salary increase from $630,000 to $1.35 million because of incentives in his contract.
