by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Panthers backup running back Chris Ogbonnaya was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks in Week 8, the team announced. Ogbonnaya was carted off the practice field with a groin injury on Friday, leaving his status for Sunday up in the air. If he is unable to play, the team could look to Fozzy Whittaker and Darrin Reaves to work behind Jonathan Stewart.

Panthers get minor work from several role players Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Panthers received some minor contributions from several role players in a Week 7 loss to he Packers. 

Chris Ogbonnaya worked behind Jonathan Stewart and only rushed for 12 yards on four carries. He was targeted once in the passing game and was held without a grab. Brandon Williams caught two of three targets for 22 yards. Ed Dickson took a step back and was held without a catch despite being targeted once in a 38-17 defeat.


Panthers without Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (knee) joined running back DeAngelo Williams (ankle) on the sidelines for Week 6 against the Bengals, as Stewart was ruled inactive Sunday after Williams was already ruled out Friday.

Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya are expected to split the reps at running back with Stewart and Williams sidelined. However, Whittaker is expected to start, according to The Charlotte Observer. Reaves was cleared to play after being listed as probable due to a hip injury.


Panthers backs unlikely to take advantage of matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) The Bengals have had some trouble against the run this season, but the Panthers may not be able to take advantage of that, with Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams still dealing with injuries.

Darrin Reaves and Chris Ogbonnaya look likely to split the load again in Week 6, as they did in Week 5. Unfortunately, the duo was awfully unproductive against the Bears, totaling 59 yards on 19 carries and leaving little reason for optimism heading into Sunday's game.

The Bengals are allowing 5.0 yards per carry to running backs and were just gashed for 29 Fantasy points by the Patriots' duo. Even with that in mind, it is hard for any Fantasy owner to consider Reaves or Ogbonnaya much more than an injury replacement option for Week 6. 


Hard to find value in Panthers backfield


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Panthers had to go deep into their depth chart at running back in Week 5 against the Bears, and it does not look like they unearthed any gems for Fantasy owners.

Darrin Reaves got the bulk of the work, as expected, but he didn't do much with it. He rushed the ball 11 times for just 35 yards, while adding one reception out of the backfield. Chris Ogbonnaya surprisingly received the backup work and found the end zone, but was unproductive all-around, racking up just 24 yards total. Fozzy Whittaker did not touch the ball in the loss.

From a Fantasy perspective, you are probably better off just waiting for Jonathan Stewart or DeAngelo Williams to come back than adding any of these guys at this point. The Panthers have had trouble getting anything going with the running game this season, and it doesn't seem like Reaves, Ogbonnaya or Whittaker are going to get them out of their slump. 


Panthers new RB Chris Ogbonnaya contributes to victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Panthers running back Chris Ogbonnaya, who was signed by the team Monday, scored his first touchdown six days later.

Ogbonnaya did little else besides plunge in from one yard out to tie the game midway through the third quarter. He finished with 24 yards on eight carries.

It remains to be seen if he continues getting reps when Carolina plays at Cincinnati in Week 6.


Panthers expected to use three-man rotation at RB Week 5


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Thursday running back Fozzy Whittaker, who has missed two straight games due to a thigh injury, looked good in practice and took all of his reps.

Rivera said earlier in the week Darrin Reaves was the default starter due to injuries at the position, but on Thursday he said "we'll see" when asked if Reaves will start Week 5 against the Bears.

Rivera added the running game Sunday will likely be a three-man rotation between Reaves, Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya.


Rivera: So far, so good for Panthers RB Chris Ogbonnaya


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Panthers just-signed running back Chris Ogbonnaya impressed Ron Rivera on Wednesday. The team hopes the former Cleveland back can bolster what has been an injury-plagued backfield.

"Chris had a good day," Rivera told the team website. "He's a smart young man. He's been in a very similar system. There is a lot of overlap with the terminology. He seemed to assimilate very nicely to it."

Ogbonnaya has racked up 660 rushing yards and 714 receiving yards in 46 games in the NFL, mostly with the Browns.

Chris Ogbonnaya out in Cleveland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2014) The Browns have waived veteran running back Chris Ogbonnaya, league sources have told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Ogbonnaya contributed a career-high 48 receptions for 343 yards last year and added 49 carries for 240 yards.


Several pitch in for Browns impotent offense on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The meager Browns offense Sunday against the Jets featured several meager individual performances. Included among those contributors was wide receiver Josh Cooper, who caught his first four passes of the season for 26 yards.

Also catching two were tight end Gary Barnidge (23 yards) and wideout Brian Tyms (12 yards). Wide receiver Greg Little grabbed one pass for 4 yards before being removed for dropping one in the end zone.

Running back Chris Ogbonnaya rushed for 8 yards on one carry and caught a pass for 4 yards.


Chris Ogbonnaya has 46 total yards in Week 15


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Browns running back Chris Ogbonnaya had five carries for seven yards in Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Bears. Ogbonnaya caught five passes for 39 yards, off five targets. 

Ogbonnaya didn't get his first carry until the 12:46 mark of the second quarter. Edwin Baker (who started) and Fozzy Whittaker got most of the early work. Baker had eight carries to Ogbonnaya's five, while Baker caught four passes to Ogbonnaya's five. It wasn't total touch domination from Baker, but he was clearly the preferred back in this game. 

Ogbonnaya now has 15 total rushing yards over the last two games, and has seen his usage fall off since fumbling in consecutive games (Weeks 11 and 12). 

The Browns face the Jets in Week 16. 


Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker are interesting Week 15 options


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Browns running back Chris Ogbonnaya has seen his production decrease steadily over the last four games, dropping from a season-high 69 rushing yards in Week 11 to eight yards in Week 14. The drop was likely hastened by fumbles in consecutive games (in Weeks 11 and 12). 

Complicating Ogbonnaya's value in Week 15 is Willis McGahee's health and the presence of Fozzy Whittaker. The Browns have a dream matchup against the Bears, who have given up eight straight 100-yard games to running backs, with three backs running for 130 or more in the last four. And McGahee was concussed at the end of Sunday's game against New England.

While this would seem to open the door for Ogbonnaya, his recent production dip may point to an increased role for Whittaker. The Browns know what they have in Ogbonnaya; they have yet to give Whittaker more than nine touches in a game. And while Ogbannaya has pretty much doubled Whittaker's snap percentage, there's always the possibility that Whittaker slides into McGahee's role, while Ogbonnaya stays put in his. 

The simplest way for events to play out would be for McGahee to play in Week 15. But if he's out, it becomes a logical move (to start Ogbonnaya) versus a huge upside gamble (starting Whittaker) against the league's most permissive run defense. 


Several Browns make minor contributions on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Many bit players had a role in the dramatic loss for the Browns at New England on Sunday. Among them were running backs Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya, both of whom caught three passes and rushed four times. The former managed 18 yards receiving and 6 yards rushing. The latter had 25 yards through the air and 8 on the ground.

The leading rusher was Willis McGahee, who ran for 33 yards on 14 carries. Adding receptions were Greg Little (2-14), Davone Bess (1-10) and MarQueis Gray (1-3).
