Mike Tolbert is 'crunch-time guy' for Carolina


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera doesn't want running back Mike Tolbert to lose too much weight, reports the Charlotte Observer. Tolbert has dropped 13 pounds to 250.

"The biggest thing that we want for him is to continue to maintain that weight and he maintains an effective play," Rivera said. "We don’t want him to lose that nose for the goal line that he has. A lot of times he’s our fourth-down, go-to guy. He’s our crunch-time guy. That’s why it’s important for him to be in shape and be ready to go."

Tolbert has run for 12 touchdowns in two seasons with Carolina and figures to get a slew of goal-line carries again this year.

Panthers rushers can't get anything going


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

DeAngelo Williams was used even less, with just five carries. He finished with 13 yards. Neither played a role in the passing game.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Mike Tolbert probable Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Panthers running back Mike Tolbert is probable Week 14 against the Saints.

Tolbert has been dealing with a knee injury, but was able to practice all week. After being limited early in the week, Tolbert was upgraded to full practice Friday. 


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.


Mike Tolbert could be a factor


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Panthers running back Mike Tolbert, who was limited in practice by a knee injury and listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, is active for Week 13 against the Buccaneers and could play a bigger role with DeAngelo Williams sidelined by a quadriceps injury.

Jonathan Stewart, who is dealing with an ankle injury of his own, will take Williams' place in the starting lineup.


Mike Tolbert questionable Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) Panthers running back Mike Tolbert is questionable Week 13 against the Buccaneers.

Tolbert is dealing with a knee injury, and was limited in practice Thursday and Friday. With both DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart questionable as well, the team is hurting at running back this week. 


A healthy Mike Tolbert is TD-league territory


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/27/2013) Panthers running back Mike Tolbert has six touchdowns on the season (four rushing), but hasn't scored since Week 9.

Tolbert did score one of his touchdowns against the Bucs (his opponent this Sunday) in Week 8, but that was before Jonathan Stewart returned and started to complicate the Panthers backfield. Additionally, Tolbert suffered a hamstring injury in Week 12 against the Dolphins, further muddying his value and playing status.

Tolbert is still a decent start in TD-only leagues, but is best left on the bench in nearly every other format. 

Mike Tolbert suffered minor injury Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2013) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday fullback Mike Tolbert suffered a minor injury on his final run Sunday against the Dolphins. Rivera said Tolbert was getting treatment Monday.

Mike Tolbert makes little impact in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Panthers running back Mike Tolbert was held out of the end zone for the third game in a row in Week 12, in a 20-16 win over the Dolphins. Tolbert rushed the ball just four times for 23 yards in the game, and added one reception for 5 yards.

Tolbert has just 12 carries for 44 yards and no touchdowns over his last three games. He will try to get back on track in Week 13, when the Panthers host the Buccaneers. 


Mike Tolbert does little with six carries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2013) Panthers running back Mike Tolbert ran six times for 17 yards in the win over the Patriots. He has not scored the past two weeks while totaling 40 yards from scrimmage.

Tolbert visits Miami in Week 12.


Several Panthers healthy enough to face Patriots


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2013) Four Panthers listed on the injury report are active for Monday's game vs. New England: left tackle Jordan Gross, running back Mike Tolbert, defensive tackle Dwan Edwards (hamstring) and cornerback Drayton Florence (groin). Gross and Tolbert were probable with non-injury related isuses.

No issues for Mike Tolbert


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2013) Panthers running back Mike Tolbert (not injury related) should have no problems playing in Week 11 against the Patriots, as he is officially probable for the game. 

Mike Tolbert returns to practice Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Panthers running back Mike Tolbert has returned to practice Friday.

Tolbert missed Thursday's practice, but it was due to the birth of his child. His absence was not injury-related, and he should be good to go Week 11.


Mike Tolbert looks to start new touchdown streak


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2013) Mike Tolbert's hot scoring stretch ended Week 10. He had scored five touchdowns in his previous four games before totaling 23 scoreless yards at San Francisco.

Can the Panthers' 243-pound battering ram start a new streak vs. the Patriots? Don't count on it. Carolina's backfied is overcrowded now that Jonathan Stewart is healthy, and Tolbert's touches are dropping. They've gone from 13 to 11 to 9 to 4 as Tolbert does more blocking.

Keep Tolbert reserved Monday night.


Mike Tolbert utilized little in win over 49ers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) The string of productive performances despite limited opportunity ended Sunday in San Francisco for Mike Tolbert.

The Panthers running back had scored six touchdowns running or receiving in six previous games and caught seven passes in the last two combined. But he managed just seven yards rushing on a season-low two attempts against the Niners and caught two passes for 16 yards. He was targeted only three times.

Tolbert could be used in more of a limited basis now that Jonathan Stewart has returned from injury. More will be determined next Monday night when his team hosts New England.


Jonathan Stewart, Mike Tolbert risky Fantasy options


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2013) No team has embraced the running back by committee philosophy more than the Carolina Panthers. And that approach significantly decreases the value of their backs. Included are Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert.

The return of Stewart from an ankle injury last week further watered down their value. He earned nine carries for 43 yards and three receptions in the defeat of Atlanta.

Tolbert has proven to be a decent second back or flex option in deeper leagues due to his inclusion in goal-line formations with four touchdowns in his last six games and has added seven catches in his last two. But Fantasy owners can't be sure how many touches he will get now that Stewart is back.

One encouraging note is that Week 10 opponent San Francisco has been somewhat susceptible to running backs catching balls in the passing game. The Niners have allowed 32 receptions from running backs for 297 yards and two touchdowns.

Still, Stewart and Tolbert are risky plays, but could be necessary ones in the season of weak running back production. One must hope they score or snag a lot of passes because it's unlikely they'll run the ball often or well enough to justify inclusion in most Fantasy lineups.
