Panthers | Jonathan Stewart enjoying expanded role

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 19:20:52 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hip) has averaged more than seven yards per carry in each of the team's last two games, and his 32 carries between those games are his most over a two-game stretch this year.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart is set to start against the Buccaneers in Week 15, and with Derek Anderson starting at quarterback, Stewart will likely be leaned on heavily. He will take up 10.0% of the cap ($5,000) at FantasyScore and should make a strong play.

Panthers | Probable status for Jonathan Stewart

Fri, 12 Dec 2014 14:05:17 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hip) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Dec. 12, and is probable for Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: With DeAngelo Williams (hand) doubtful, Stewart ($5,000) should see the lion's share of the carries again this weekend. The Buccaneers have yielded their fair share of fantasy points to running backs this year, making J-Stew a great value play at FantasyScore.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart practices in full

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 12:01:58 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart looks to be on track to play in Week 15 and probably will receive a majority of the carries. He will be facing a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that has had problems with running backs over the past four games. Stewart costs $5,000 on FantasyScore and could be a solid option at running back or flex option.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart on injury report

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 13:46:14 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hip) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart's injury doesn't appear to be very severe, so we expect him to suit up in Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. J-Stew had a big game last week with DeAngelo Williams (hand) out, and that could very well continue against the Bucs' weak defense this week. Consider Stewart ($5,000) a strong play at FantasyScore if Williams remains out.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams will return to mix

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 13:12:22 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) will be in the mix in the backfield when he returns from a broken bone in his right hand, but head coach Ron Rivera would not say if he would start over RB Jonathan Stewart, who has been strong in Williams' absence. "My preference. That's the only reason," Rivera said. "DeAngelo is a part of who we are. We'll see. We'll see how it is. It will be a day-by-day process with him. As the hand gets stronger and heals up, we'll go forward." The offensive line was solid in the Week 14 win over the New Orleans Saints, and they helped Stewart run for 155 yards. QB Cam Newton also ran for 83 yards on the ground, while RB Mike Tolbert had 62 total yards and RB Fozzy Whittaker had 31 total yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Williams will cost $3,200 heading into Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but his iffy status should steer you away from him. Stewart ($5,000) should remain intriguing for at least another week with this juicy matchup against the Bucs.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart breaks big run

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 11:56:04 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart rushed for 69 yards and a touchdown on a play in the third quarter of the team's Week 14 game.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart is part of a committee at running back for the Panthers, but could receive more carries because of his play this week. Stewart is not a weekly starting option but could be used against certain matchups.

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.
