Panthers RB Stewart could be featured in 2015
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Though Panthers coach Ron Rivera has stated he would like to continue using a two-back system, the loss of DeAngelo Williams to Pittsburgh has Jonathan Stewart as the featured back at the moment. Stewart can sense the difference.
"It's going to be weird," he told the team website. "Just coming up here today for the first team workouts and my locker buddy was gone after seven years. Obviously, it's different, but it's part of the business.
"It's a different situation with what transpired this offseason. When things like that happen, it opens opportunities for other people."
Steward seemed to earn the opportunity late last season to be featured. He rushed for 486 yards on 91 carries over the last five games.
Panthers to employ two-back system
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday that the team would like to continue to use a two-back system this season, according to ESPN.
Ideally the team would like for Jonathan Stewart to get 15 carries while eight or more carries would go to another running back.
“The thing you’ve got to be careful about in this league is you can’t rely on one player at one position,’’ Rivera said during the NFC coaches breakfast. “Running back has definitely been proven that you’ve got to have a good two-back tandem.
“And that’s what we’re looking for. We’re looking for that complement to Jonathan.’’
Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart looking to build off strong finish
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(1/27/15) Over the last five weeks of the regular season, Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart rushed for 486 yards, second only to Dallas' DeMarco Murray. Stewart followed that up with 123 yards and a touchdown in the playoff win over Arizona.
"I'm really excited for next year," Stewart told the team's website. "You have to find your zone throughout the offseason. It starts now."
Stewart got the chance to be a workhorse when DeAngelo Williams fractured his hand Week 13. ESPN.com reports there's a "strong possibility" the Panthers will release the 31-year-old Williams this offseason, leaving Stewart, 27, as the unquestioned starter.
"It's just part of the journey," Stewart said of the individual success he had toward season's end. "The moment you start focusing on that, you miss out on other things along the journey."
'Strong possibility' RB DeAngelo Williams gets released
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(1/20/15) With Jonathan Stewart shining down the stretch and earning the right to start next season, there's a "strong possibility" the Panthers will release running back DeAngelo Williams, reports ESPN.com. The move would save Carolina $2 million against the cap.
Williams, 31, played in just six games this season due to injuries. He averaged 3.5 yards per carry and did not score.
Panthers' Jonathan Stewart performs well despite limited touches
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/10/15) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart performed well on Saturday against the Seahawks.
Stewart did so despite limited touches. He received just 13 rushing attempts, gaining 70 yards. Stewart didn't break off many big plays, with his longest run going for 16 yards, but was consistently able to pick up solid gains. Stewart wasn't much of a factor in the passing game, hauling in one catch for 4 yards.
|Are you ready to embrace Jonathan Stewart as a No. 2 Fantasy running back this season? That's a tough question to answer because of his star-crossed history with the Panthers. While he did help Fantasy owners last year with a late-season surge, the 28-year-old Stewart is still expected to settle in at 15 or so carries per game while splitting work with another rusher according to head coach Ron Rivera. He had 15 or more carries in a game just five times last year, delivering 10-plus Fantasy points in three of them. He's also no spring chicken, missing 20 games over his last three seasons. He hasn't played a 16 game season since 2011. So for in order for him to be a great contributor for Fantasy owners, Stewart will have to be dominant without having the workload that pushed him into being a late-season savior in 2014. It's too risky to justify a Top 30 pick on him -- if you can get Stewart closer to 45th overall, you're saving yourself some trouble. Of course, there will probably be someone who takes him earlier than that in every draft, so don't expect Stewart to fall into your lap. If you do decide to draft Stewart, make sure you also take his backup with a pick later on, presumably well past the halfway point of the draft.
