Fri, 12 Dec 2014 09:38:09 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) is doubtful for the team's Week 15 game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: It is unlikely that Williams will be able to play in this week's game. He should be avoided in FantasyScore contests. Jonathan Stewart is an excellent option at $5,000 this week. He should be considered for your roster.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams to see specialist?

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 14:43:34 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) could see a hand specialist this week, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Williams fractured his hand in Week 13 but could still play in Week 14 if the swelling in his hand goes down.

Fantasy Tip: If Williams doesn't play, Jonathan Stewart would once again get the start. Whoever starts will have a nice matchup versus the New Orleans Saints, who allow 22.8 fantasy points per game to running backs. While Stewart hasn't done anything special this year, he is a cheaper FantasyScore option at $4,900.

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 23:14:27 -0800

The absence of DE Greg Hardy has impacted the Carolina Panthers' defense this season, according to coach Ron Rivera, because it has made the defense more inconsistent. "People have got to game plan for him and do certain things with protections. It would help to have him. We don't. So, unfortunately, we go on and do the best that we can without him," Rivera said.
