Xavier Legette Dealing With Hamstring Injury

By Jared Smola | Updated on Wed, 19 Jun 2024, 10:07 AM EDT

Panthers WR Xavier Legette missed the last three weeks of spring workouts with a hamstring injury. “We’ve gotta get him back out there,” HC Dave Canales said, “so we can work him through that.”

2024 Fantasy Football Impact

There's no reason to believe that this hamstring injury will impact Legette's availability for the start of training camp next month, although hamstring injuries have a tendency to linger.

Still, the missed time is not ideal for a rookie who needs all the reps he can get. Legette is a big, athletic receiver coming off a monster 2023 season. But that was his only productive college campaign. And he's a raw prospect in terms of his ability to beat press coverage, route running, and understanding defensive coverages.

Although there's opportunity in the Panthers' WR corps behind likely No. 1 Diontae Johnson, we're not particularly excited about Legette's 2024 fantasy outlook. He sits 71st in our WR rankings -- a couple of spots below his current ADP.

Injury History: New Developments & Historical Context

Legette missed four games in 2020 at South Carolina with a hamstring injury. It's unclear if this latest issue is related.

Our Injury Predictor gives Legette a 44.4% chance of injury this season with 1.5 projected games missed.
