Panthers | Jonathan Stewart inactive

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 08:36:20 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) is inactive Sunday, Oct. 12, for Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Darrin Reaves ($3,600; 7.2% of your cap) was relatively ineffective last week, but he's expected to be the lead guy again today. Chris Ogbonnaya ($3,500; 7%) had eight carries and a touchdown last week and could be a dark horse on FantasyScore today.

Panthers | Chris Ogbonnaya to be limited

Sat, 04 Oct 2014 08:21:47 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Chris Ogbonnaya's playing time in Week 5 will be limited, because he signed earlier this week and is not familiar with the offensive playbook.

Fantasy Tip: Ogbonnaya will see some playing time, but Darrin Reaves and Fozzy Whittaker will receive a majority of the work at running back. Ogbonnaya should not be a starting option in any league this week.

Panthers | Panthers to use hot hand at RB

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 11:08:50 -0700

Carolina Panthers RBs Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya will all receive carries early in the game Week 5, and the team will continue to use whichever running back is producing, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: This is not an ideal situation for fantasy owners since it is not known how the carries will be spread out during the game. Reaves and Whittaker cost $3,000 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider avoiding the Panthers' running back situation since there is no specific role for any of the running backs.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart unlikely to play

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 12:43:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) likely will not be able to play in Week 5, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera said he is comfortable with RBs Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya.

Fantasy Tip: Reaves, Whittaker and Ogbonnaya could all receive work in Week 5, but Reaves is expected to receive the start. Reaves costs $3,000 on FantasyScore and could be a cheap flex option that can bring a profit if he gets most of the work. Whittaker also costs $3,000 but may not have a big enough role to be a factor in fantasy leagues.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams out

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 07:14:15 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is out for Week 5, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Darrin Reaves ($3,000; 6% of your cap) is expected to start and makes a bare-minimum flex option on FantasyScore. Chris Ogbannaya could also figure into the mix, but now there are reports Jonathan Stewart (knee) could return. Stewart ($3,600; 7.2% of your cap) would be a decent bargain bin flex option if he's able to suit up.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams in a cast

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 06:24:37 -0700

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) has right foot and ankle in a cast Wednesday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is likely to miss a couple of weeks. Darrin Reaves is expected to start in Week 5. However, Chris Ogbannaya could wind up being an active participant. Reaves ($3,000; 6% of your cap) is a bare-minimum play against the Chicago Bears this week.

Panthers | Panthers adding Chris Ogbonnaya

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 15:49:42 -0700

The Carolina Panthers will sign free-agent RB Chris Ogbonnaya (Browns).

Fantasy Tip: Ogbonnaya probably will not start for the team but could receive some carries in Week 5. Owners in deeper leagues could consider adding him since the Panthers are thin at running back, and Ogbonnaya could get playing time. Owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid using him this week even though he will have a low cost.

Browns | Chris Obonnaya may be on bubble

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 11:33:28 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Chris Ogbonnaya may be on the roster bubble, because TE MarQueis Gray and FB Ray Agnew III are receiving most of the snaps at fullback. Ogbonnaya may need to make the team based on his special teams play.

Browns | Edwin Baker performing well

Sat, 28 Jun 2014 14:36:57 -0700

Cleveland Browns RB Edwin Baker has had some good moments in spring practices and seems to be ahead of RB Chris Ogbonnaya in the pecking order. Ogbonnaya may be used mostly on special teams.
