2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
At this point in his career Jonathan Stewart has proven to be a solid fantasy contributor when on the field. Unfortunately, fantasy owners are not too likely to get him on the field for the entire fantasy season since he hasn't played a full slate of games since 2011. Yet he still helps fantasy owners because he still gets enough touches and goal line carries to provide low end RB2 results when he does stay on the field. The Panthers did their best to hide the diminishing skills of their lead back by cutting back his touches in 2016. After averaging 18.6 carries per game in 2015, that number decreased to 16.8 a year ago. Roughly 46 percent of his total fantasy points scored last season occurred in three great games. That doesn't mean he isn't good enough to start in most leagues, but it does bring some "boom or bust" risk to his fantasy value. The Panthers also added Christian McCaffrey via the draft to help shoulder the workload this year leaving potential Jonathan Stewart owners to ponder just how effective he can be this year. There isn't enough upside to draft him as a RB2 but his track record working in this offense offers plenty of value as a RB3 if he slips in drafts.

News From The Past 90 Days
Panthers HC: "We believe" in Jonathan Stewart
Shakeup at RB duties still looming with Christian McCaffrey shining
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Nov 7, 11:05 am

Carolina Panthers
“We believe in Jonathan," coach Ron Rivera said Monday. “That is why we brought him back in and gave him the football again. That's why we gave him the carry at the end of the game as well." The Panthers might believe in Jonathan Stewart, but it might be time to admit that he has become a complementary piece to rookie Christian McCaffrey, instead of vice versa. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Stewart fumbled twice against the Falcons and played his fewest snaps of the season, but Rivera is till stubbornly giving the veteran plenty of early down carries. He has to say this, but the writing is on the wall that McCaffrey is easily the better fantasy option and should be deployed in all formats as a RB3 or better moving forward.


More Cameron Artis-Payne this week?
McCaffrey could lose a few snaps on third down
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 28, 10:00 am

Carolina Panthers
“There’s some really good things that Cap has done this week,” said Rivera, referring to Artis-Payne by his nickname. “So if the right situation comes in, Cameron Artis-Payne may get some opportunities. Chrisitian McCaffrey should break Jonathan Stewart’s single-season, team record for catches by a running back. But the 5-11, 205-pounder has had trouble at times holding up against blitzing linebackers. (Charlotte Observer)

FFToday's Take: McCaffrey does the majority of his damage in the receiving department and if he loses some snaps on third downs, that would have some impact on his production. That being said, we don't expect CAP to see significant usage. McCaffrey is a viable flex play this week in a game that could shootout.


Carolina to ride "hot hand"?
HC: Game flow to determine playing time
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 21, 8:15 pm

Carolina Panthers
HC Ron Rivera said balance with playing time between Christian McCaffrey and Jonathan Stewart is "about the flow of the game" and who is doing well. (Associated Press)

FFToday's Take: It's unclear what exactly prompted Rivera to make this statement. McCaffrey and Stewart are two very different backs who complement each other well, which is pretty much how they have been used to this point. The Panthers would be silly to wear out an injury-prone back like Stewart or put too much on McCaffrey's plate when Stewart is around to be the hammer for this offense. Both players have a enticing matchup in Week 3 against New Orleans.
