Panthers | Confident in Cameron Artis-Payne

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 19:07:00 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Cameron Artis-Payne can carry the load in the event of an injury to RB Jonathan Stewart, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: The head coach is confident in CAPís ability, but the rookie is behind Jonathan Stewart and nothing is likely to change that outside of an injury. For now the former Auburn tailback is worth a speculative pick in the later rounds on draft day.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart limited to 15 carries

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 13:54:35 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart will ideally be limited to 15 carries a game, according to head coach Ron Rivera. The team will look to draft a running back in the 2015 NFL Draft that will likely take eight to 10 carries per game.

Fantasy Tip: J-Stew has a lengthy injury history, and while it still seems like they plan to use him as their RB1, he really has very little upside in this arrangement. Draft him as an RB3, but look to handcuff him to his No. 2 as well.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart not practicing Tuesday

Tue, 06 Jan 2015 10:22:07 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart is taking the day off from practice Tuesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has rushed for over 100 yards in three of his last five games. However, against one of the best overall defenses in the league in the Seattle Seahawks, J-Stew makes for a weak play at FantasyScore this weekend.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart heads backfield

Sat, 03 Jan 2015 17:32:05 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart led the team with 24 carries in the wild-card playoff game against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Jan. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Even with DeAngelo Williams back in the mix, Stewart had 20 more carries than any other running back on the team. His role as the lead back appears safe for as long as Carolina remains alive in the playoffs.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart with good game

Sat, 03 Jan 2015 16:52:49 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart had 24 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown in the wild-card playoff game Saturday, Jan. 3.

Fantasy Tip: J-Stew will have a tough matchup next week in Seattle. Depending on his salary on FantasyScore, he could be a low-end RB1 option worth using.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart to remain lead back

Fri, 02 Jan 2015 11:08:04 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart is expected to start and see most of the carries over RB DeAngelo Williams in the team's Wild Card game against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Jan. 3. Stewart has the second most rushing yards (486) in the league in the last five games, and Williams was a liability in the passing game with an injured right hand. However, Williams is "ready to roll" this week, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($5,300; 10.6% of cap) will continue to see the lion's share of the workload, but Williams' ($3,000) return has to concern you, at least a little. Arizona's run defense has been vulnerable of late to bruising backs unlike Stewart. Consider Stewart a candidate to disappoint in the first round of the playoffs.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart given day off

Tue, 30 Dec 2014 11:38:56 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 30, as he was given the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart should still be good to go for the wild card matchup with the Arizona Cardinals. He's not the best option on FantasyScore against a top-five Cardinals rush defense.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart the starter in Carolina

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:20:25 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart will be the team's starting running back in Week 17 against the Atlanta Falcons despite RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) being listed as probable for the game. Stewart has ran for 437 yards in the last four games with Williams out, which is more than any other running back in the NFL in that span. "I'm not going to sit here and divulge what my plan is with my players," head coach Ron Rivera said. "I don't want to get up here and tell you exactly what we're going to do with our players. Why do I want to give the opponent any insight into what we're going to do?" There are no guarantees that Williams will play, since there are concerns about his ability to block with his hand injury.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart should be a solid play at FantasyScore against the Falcons, even if Williams is active in the game. The Falcons have routinely been beaten up by opposing rushers all year. Ignore Williams in all fantasy leagues.

Panthers | Starting RB still not named for Carolina

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 11:38:44 -0800

Carolina Panthers RBs Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams still don't know who will start this week. Head coach Ron Rivera said he's reluctant to name a starter at this point and will cross that bridge when he gets to it.

Fantasy Tip: Logic says that Stewart ($5,555) will maintain his starter status considering his recent success. Whoever does start will have a terrific matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, who have allowed the most fantasy points to running backs this year.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams practicing

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 11:12:34 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) was taking first-team snaps at practice Tuesday, Dec. 23, with RB Jonathan Stewart taking the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($5,555) could very well return this weekend to face the Atlanta Falcons in a winner-take-all contest for the NFC South division. A Williams return would lower the FantasyScore value of Jonathan Stewart ($5,555), who has run well in recent weeks as the main back. Stewart is clearly the better option here, but temper your expectations if Williams returns.
