Panthers | Jonathan Stewart to miss Week 16

Wed, 18 Dec 2013 12:10:55 -0800

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) will not play Week 16. Rivera would not say if Stewart will be able to play Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert likely will continue to get most of the work at running back. Williams should be seen as a No. 2 running back or flex option this week. Tolbert could be a flex option but could also be bench if an owner has better options.

Panthers | Believe Jonathan Stewart has torn MCL

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 10:42:33 -0800

The Carolina Panthers believe RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) has a torn medial collateral ligament.

Fantasy Tip: DeAngelo Williams likely would get most of the carries while Stewart is out and will be more valuable in fantasy leagues. Mike Tolbert probably will also receive more play time, which will help his value.

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 11:58:59 -0800

Carolina Panthers FB Mike Tolbert (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is probable for Week 14.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is probable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: With DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert both likely to play, Stewart is a weak play at best. If you have a better option, take it.

Panthers | Entire backfield misses practice

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:27:29 -0800

Carolina Panthers RBs DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps), Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and Mike Tolbert (knee) all missed practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers are likely just resting their three-headed rushing attack for this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but stay tuned the rest of the week. Williams' value has taken a hit with J-Stew splitting carries with him. Williams remains the lead back, slightly, but he's more of a flex in a tough matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13.

Panthers | RBs split carries

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 08:16:04 -0800

Carolina Panthers RBs DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert had 13, nine and six carries, respectively, in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: All three are worth rostering, but Williams appears to be losing his grip as the most utilized back. Stewart was effective in his first action and should continue to cut into Williams' share.

Panthers | Mike Tolbert continues to score

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 14:28:43 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Mike Tolbert carried six times for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He also added three catches for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Tolbert has scored five times in the past four games, but fantasy owners now have to worry about Jonathan Stewart taking away touches from Tolbert. He made his 2013 debut, and he joins Tolbert and DeAngelo Williams in a three-headed backfield.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart to be activated from PUP

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 10:45:53 -0700

The Carolina Panthers will activate RB Jonathan Stewart (ankles) from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Nov. 2, and he'll make his season debut in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. RB DeAngelo Williams will remain the starter, though, and he practiced Friday, Nov. 1, after missing the last two days with a bruised quadriceps. Head coach Ron Rivera wants Stewart to get six to 10 carries against the Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: J-Stew should be owned in all leagues by now. His role will be limited initially, but he could gain more carries as he gets his legs underneath him. This limits the values of Williams and Mike Tolbert and makes playing any of the three a crapshoot on most weeks.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams misses practice

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 13:22:07 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers are optimistic that Williams will play in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons, but two straight missed practices will make his owners uneasy. He could relinquish carries to Mike Tolbert and Jonathan Stewart. Tolbert's value as an RB3 or flex play is strengthened if Williams is limited.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart looks good

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 13:41:20 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankles), who is still currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list, looked and felt great in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, and the team expects him to be active in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. "I feel ready," Stewart said. "Today was a good step forward putting the pads on. It felt good going out there and hitting the field full speed with some contact and running plays with contact."

Stewart had the majority of snaps in practice with RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) being held out for precautionary reasons. Head coach Ron Rivera continues to say that Williams will remain the starter and that RB Mike Tolbert will continue to see touches. "We can't force things," Rivera said. "We can't. What we've got to do is Mike (Shula, offensive coordinator) has to continue to call his game the way he wants to call it, and at the end of the day when you get your opportunity make the best of it."

Fantasy Tip: The three-headed monster in Carolina is back. Even though Williams and Tolbert will continue to see their touches, Stewart's return will make them less attractive, especially after a few weeks when he has his legs under him in game situations. DAW is more of an RB3 now with Tolbert and J-Stew representing RB depth for your fantasy squad.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart expects to play in Week 9

Tue, 22 Oct 2013 13:27:55 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) is expecting to return to play in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. He returned to practice for the first time Tuesday, Oct. 22, since injuring his right ankle Nov. 26 of last season. He will remain on the Physically Unable to Perform list for the team's game Thursday, Oct. 24. Stewart is expected to split time with RBs DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert when he returns, but head coach Ron Rivera said Williams will remain the "premiere guy."

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams surprises in win

Sun, 22 Sep 2013 18:06:01 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams posted his first 100-yard rushing game of the season in Week 3 against the New York Giants, carrying 23 times for 120 yards and a 5.2-yard average. He did not find the end zone, but FB Mike Tolbert was able to get in on a 2-yard scamper in the first half.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Williams and his fantasy owners, the Panthers have a bye in Week 4. When he returns in Week 5, Williams will be a solid low-end RB2 or flex play in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Panthers | Steve Smith blames former coach for offensive struggles

Thu, 05 Sep 2013 10:46:54 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Steve Smith blamed former offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski for the team's struggles last year on offense. "The prior offensive coordinator [Chudzinski] really was positioning himself to just apply for that head coaching job," Smith said. "I think our offense suffered a little bit because of that." "At times, we got cute," Smith said. "We did things that weren't necessarily us, like the underutilizing of [running back] Mike Tolbert. But we're out of that. The past is the past."

Panthers | Sources: Jonathan Stewart to start on PUP

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 10:22:03 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) will start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: J-Stew would miss the first six games but still could fly as a bench grab in the middle to late rounds. DeAngelo Williams becomes a legitimate RB3 with some weeks as an RB2. Rookie speedster Kenjon Barner (foot) also gains cred as an RB5 speculation, but we'll have to see how he responds to his recent foot injury. Mike Tolbert could siphon a touchdown or two in the time J-Stew is out and could be a last-ditch pick, as well. Remember, though: The entire backfield's TD upside is restricted by Cam Newton's feet.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart could go on PUP list

Tue, 20 Aug 2013 16:02:36 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankles) will not play in the team's third preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22, and the club isn't ruling out placing him on the Physically Unable to Perform list, which would cause him to miss at least the first six weeks of the season. "At this point anything is an option," head coach Ron Rivera said. "What you're hoping is you can get him on the football field and we'll see once the doctor gets a chance to look at him." Stewart has yet to practice with the team and will meet with doctors soon. RB DeAngelo Williams has been taking reps with the first-team offense, and RB Kenjon Barner has seen increased opportunity.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, this makes Stewart a very risky running back selection. Williams' stock is rising as a result, but neither is attractive as anything more than a very weak RB3. With Mike Tolbert and Barner in the picture, too, this may be one of those running back situations to steer clear of on draft day.

Panthers | Two RBs sit out

Fri, 16 Aug 2013 10:56:18 -0700

Carolina Panthers RBs Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and RB Mike Tolbert (hamstring) were each inactive for the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Tolbert has missed the first two preseason games, but said if this were the regular season he'd be ready. Still, Tolbert is nothing more than a third option on the team when Stewart is healthy. As far as Stewart, he cannot seem to stay healthy, and fantasy owners would do well shying away from him and letting Stewart be someone else's problem.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart's participation uncertain

Wed, 24 Jul 2013 12:59:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said team does not know how much RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) will be able to practice until he undergoes an extensive physical Thursday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart's health is in question entering training camp which may hurt is fantasy value. Stewart will probably have to share carries even if he is healthy because the team also has DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert in their backfield as well as Cam Newton. Stewart should be seen as a No. 3 fantasy running back or an option in the flex position.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart very limited

Thu, 23 May 2013 11:53:12 -0700

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) was very limited during organized team activities Thursday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart is recovering from offseason ankle surgery and there is no rush for him to be on the field at this point. Stewart should be seen as a No. 3 running back at this point because he probably will be splitting carries with DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert.

Fri, 15 Mar 2013 15:52:03 -0700

The Carolina Panthers exercised FB Mike Tolbert's option for 2014 and 2015 seasons Friday, March 15.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Tolbert's value to remain relatively unchanged this year in the Panthers' offense unless DeAngelo Williams is dealt on draft day, which is entirely possible.

Panthers | Mike Tolbert does not think offense will change much

Sun, 20 Jan 2013 12:02:21 -0800

Carolina Panthers FB Mike Tolbert said he believes the offense under offensive coordinator Mike Shula will be similar to the one the team used when Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski was the coordinator. "You never know what (a coach) has planned," Tolbert said. "But at the same time, I think the basic scheme of things probably won't change much." Tolbert thinks Shula's hiring will be good for QB Cam Newton because he will not have to learn a new offense.
