2015 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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury WR Benjamin will miss entire 2015 season     -- Wed Aug 19 7:39 pm --

Torn ACL in left knee
SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin will miss the season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee on Wednesday. (ESPN.com)

FF Today's Take: In the wake of Kelvin Benjamin's injury, the Panthers will need Greg Olsen and Jonathan Stewart more than ever. Wide receivers Devin Funchess and Philly Brown will see their roles expand but fantasy owners shouldn't go overboard here. Cam Newton and company already figured to finish with one of the league's worst passing offenses when Benjamin was healthy. Opposing defenses will also be better able to key in on the ground attack without a big-time threat on the outside. Carolina may also look to add another veteran free agent receiver.
Injury Mike Tolbert healthy, looking to regain 2013 form     -- Fri Jun 26 12:45 pm --

Panthers RB “didn't feel like myself" last season
Mike Tolbert said he has been particularly motivated to work out in the offseason because of a left leg and knee injury last season that cost him eight games in 2014. It was the first major injury of his career. “I didn't feel like myself,” Tolbert said. “I didn't feel like I had the power. I didn't fully trust my knee or my leg. I didn't know if it was going to break again or not. I definitely wasn't confident in my body at that point." (Charlotte Observer)

FF Today's Take: Tolbert returned late last season from his broken leg but was ineffective. His return to health could pose a threat to Jonathan Stewart's fantasy upside as Tolbert is known TD-vulture scoring 11 times in 2010. Rookie Cameron Artis-Payne is also in the mix for carries and would likely split time with Tolbert if Stewart suffers a significant injury.
