Mike Tolbert probable Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Panthers best running back in Week 14 will be ...


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/6/2013) The Panthers head into Week 14 at New Orleans with all three of their running backs expected to be healthy in Mike Tolbert, DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. But can you trust any of them in the Fantasy playoffs?

Williams missed Week 13 against Tampa Bay with a quad injury, but he's expected to return against the Saints. And Stewart, despite missing practice time this week with an ankle injury, is also expected to face New Orleans. Of the three, Tolbert is the only running back for the Panthers to consider in Fantasy play. The other two are just too inconsistent to trust.

Tolbert has scored at least eight Fantasy points four times in his past seven games. Stewart has struggled since making his debut in Week 9 with six Fantasy points or less the past five games. And Williams has six Fantasy points combined in his past two games.

Now, all three running backs have a good history against New Orleans, and the Saints have allowed nine touchdowns to running backs this season and nine to reach double digits in Fantasy points. But Tolbert would have the best chance to score of this trio, and he should be considered a flex option.

Consider Williams and Stewart just options in deeper leagues, but we'd bench them in Week 14 if possible.


Mike Tolbert steps up his production


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Though he didn't get the start with DeAngelo Williams sidelined by a quadriceps injury, running back Mike Tolbert proved to be the Panthers' most effective backfield option Week 13 against the Buccaneers.

Jonathan Stewart, who did start, led the team with 14 carries, but for only 39 yards. And most of those carries came either early in the game, when the Panthers hadn't gotten a chance to switch gears yet, or late in the game, when the outcome was already decided. Tolbert carried the load in the second and third quarters, rushing nine times for 48 yards and catching three passes for 41. Unlike Stewart, who was unable to extend plays, Tolbert excelled in traffic, using his size to bounce off defenders.

Williams' status going forward is unknown, but Tolbert will look to make the most of whatever opportunities he gets Week 14 at New Orleans.
