2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
When Stewart gets a chance to run the ball, he looks good (career average of 4.9 yards per carry). He just doesn’t get a chance to run it enough (career low 142 carries last season). In 2011, Stewart split carries with DeAngelo Williams in the Panthers backfield but both players were behind quarterback Cam Newton in terms of getting short yardage work. If that situation wasn’t bad enough, the Panthers backfield got even more crowded in the off-season with the acquisition of former Charger Mike Tolbert, who was a TD vulture in San Diego, scoring 21 times over the past two seasons and caught 54 passes in 2011. His presence will make it difficult for Stewart to match his production from last season – five total touchdowns, 761 rushing yards to go along with career-highs in receptions (47) and receiving yards (413). While Stewart is a solid player entering his contract year, he shapes up as no better than a mid-tier to low end RB3 this season with little upside barring an injury in the Panthers backfield.

Comment: Stewart suffered an ankle injury in the Panthers third preseason game. He's questionable to play Week 1.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury DeAngelo Williams expected to return for Wk 9     -- Tue Oct 28 5:30 pm --

Will "start" but should split time with Stewart
Rivera is expecting running back DeAngelo Williams to start against the Saints. Williams is returning from a four-game absence due to an ankle injury. "He is a little ahead of schedule, to be honest with you," Rivera said. (Panthers.com)

FF Today's Take: Even though Rivera said he expects Williams to start you can expect in typical Panthers timeshare between Williams and Jonathan Stewart. Stewart rushed for 79 yards on 16 carries last week. Neither RB can be counted on for anything better than a FLEX option in Week 9.
Injury DeAngelo Williams "ready to roll" for TNF     -- Mon Oct 27 2:35 pm --

Sidelined since Sept. 28 with sprained ankle
Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams told HC Ron Rivera on Monday is he "ready to roll" for Thursday night's primetime game against New Orleans. Carolina's all-time leading rusher with 6,733 yards hasn't played since spraining his ankle in the first half of a Sept. 28 loss at Baltimore. Prior to that, Williams missed two games with a hamstring injury. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Williams' return would remove some of the luster from Jonathan Stewart's plus-matchup in Week 9 at home against the Saints. Stewart should still be expected to see the majority of touches since Williams has been sidelined for over a month, but neither player should be considered more than a low-end flex play now.
Injury Jonathan Stewart expects to start Week 7     -- Thu Oct 16 4:50 pm --

Gets in first padded practice since Week 3 knee sprain
After participating fully in practice on Wednesday, Jonathan Stewart was more definitive in saying he will play, and start, for the Panthers this week at Green Bay. “Jonathan looked good. He had a good day,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. “We’ll see how he is (Thursday), but he took the majority of the reps. He took all the reps that were slated for him as well." Wednesday was Stewart’s first fully padded practice since before his injury. (Charlotte Observer)

FF Today's Take: While Carolina appears to be a low fantasy-upside proposition for running backs, it is hard not to notice just how easy the second-half schedule appears to be (starting in Week 11). With Cam Newton now a realistic threat to run again and a likely 1-2 week window without DeAngelo Williams stealing carries, it is possible Stewart could become the clear lead back in this backfield by the time Williams gets back from his high ankle sprain.
Injury Panthers' backfield in shambles     -- Mon Sep 22 4:45 pm --

Stewart to be reevaluated on Friday, Tolbert out Week 4
Coach Ron Rivera is optimistic that DeAngelo Williams will return from a hamstring injury to play versus the Baltimore Ravens this week, but the Carolina Panthers' backfield woes aren't going away. Jonathan Stewart will be held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday with a severely sprained knee. Mike Tolbert, sporting crutches and a knee brace, will miss Sunday's game with a hairline fracture in his right leg. The fullback is week to week, per Rivera. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: In the event that Williams cannot go, owners may need to consider Darrin Reaves, who was elevated from the practice squad over the weekend. The bigger problem, however, is that Cam Newton may not be healthy enough and the offensive line may not be good enough this year to mask the injuries that the Panthers overcame last year.
Injury DeAngelo Williams misses practice Friday     -- Fri Sep 12 10:38 am --

Thigh injury
Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams did not participate in portion open to media. Second day in a row. (Jonathan Jones)

FF Today's Take: Williams missed practice yesterday making his status for Sunday very much in question. Jonathan Stewart would get the start and move into flex consideration if Williams can't go. Mike Tolbert would likely see some additions additional work as well.
Injury Newton, Stewart back practicing for Panthers     -- Sun Aug 10 10:10 pm --

Both expected to play in next preseason game
Despite the wet conditions Sunday afternoon, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and running back Jonathan Stewart were on the field with the first-team offense together. Rivera said Newton’s workload will increase now after he did little during Wednesday and Thursday’s practices. He sat out Friday’s exhibition, but Rivera said he expects Newton, Stewart and running back DeAngelo Williams to play next Sunday against the Chiefs. (Charlotte Observer)

FF Today's Take: Newton's been very limited after ankle surgery in March but he should be full go moving forward. Jonathan Stewart has missed the last couple weeks with a hamstring injury. His injury history is long and even if he makes it through the rest of the preseason healthy, he can't be valued as anything more than a late-round flier for your fantasy team.
