Sam LaPorta has 'Outside Chance' to Play vs Rams in Wild Card Round

Is this fantastic news about Laporta’s availability as the Lions seek their first playoff win since 1991? Not at all - but the fact that the Lions haven’t completely closed the door on LaPorta’s availability offers at least a small glimmer of hope for DFS players who are eager to get him into their lineup. At this point, it’s probably safe to assume that Laporta won’t suit up just a week removed from what was a relatively concerning injury on the field that required him to be carted off – but this is the Lions’ first playoff appearance since 2016, and with Dan Campbell as Detroit’s head coach, it wouldn’t come as a total shock to see Laporta gut it out for his team. In terms of his immediate fantasy outlook, it’s likely any playing time he gets if he’s able to go on Sunday is very limited, so those looking to take advantage of DFS and other contests should be weary of adding LaPorta to their entries this super wild card weekend.
