News: ESPN reports the Patriots have activated fullback Tony Fiammetta from the reserve/left squad list.
Analysis: Though he's got some potential as a fullback, Fiammetta doesn't produce enough stats to warrant Fantasy use.
News: Cowboys RB Tony Fiammetta was re-signed on Tuesday after being waived last week.
Analysis: This move was expected after the Cowboys played with no true fullback in Week 1 against the Jets. Fiammetta might get onto the field moving forward, but he will be in strictly for blocking purposes and can be ignored in Fantasy.
News: The Cowboys waived RB Tony Fiammetta on Wednesday to clear a roster spot for WR Laurent Robinson.
Analysis: Fiammetta was just signed by the Cowboys after being cut the other day by the Panthers. However, he might quickly rejoin the team since the Cowboys need a fullback heading into Week 1. Regardless, he is not a stat machine as a fullback and can be left on waivers.
News: FB Tony Fimmetta has been claimed off waivers by the Cowboys. He was released by the Panthers. The Cowboys had four FBs on the roster before, but released them all on Saturday. Fiammetta was Carolinas fourth-round pick in 2009 and started 11 games the past two seasons.
Analysis: Fiammetta will not be featured much in the offense if he gets in the game, but he will be blocking for some solid RBs when he does. His role may become an important one for the team to win games, but he won't have the save value in any Fantasy format. Ignore Fiammetta in all leagues.
News: Carolina RB Tony Fiammetta picked up his first offensive touch of the season in the Week 2 loss to Tampa Bay. Fiammetta rushed one time and did not gain a yard.
Analysis: Fiammetta will often go without stats this season for the Panthers. He is used mostly as a blocker in the offense. He has no Fantasy value heading into Week 3 against the Bengals.
News: The Charlotte Observer reports that the Panthers are looking for help at FB with Brad Hoover no longer on the team. That leaves things to 2009 fourth-round pick Tony Fiammetta, who struggled last year.
Analysis: Fiammetta will block for one of the best running back tandems in the NFL in DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, but Fiammetta has minimal Fantasy value. He is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues this season.
News: Carolina WR Charly Martin, TE Gary Barnidge and FB Tony Fiammetta all went without stats in the Week 17 win over the Saints. Backup QB A.J. Feeley did not get into the game.
Analysis: All four offensive players above have no Fantasy value heading into the 2010-11 season as they do not figure to be major parts of the Carolina offense.
News: The Panthers have listed the following players as inactive for Week 14 at New England: QB Jake Delhomme, DB C.J. Wilson, DE Tyler Brayton, RB Mike Goodson, RB Tony Fiammetta, DT Derek Landri and WR Kenneth Moore.
Analysis: Apart from Delhomme, who was already declared out earlier this week, none of these guys have any Fantasy value. Delhomme remains worth stashing in only deeper formats.
News: Carolina had two starters in the Week 10 win over the Falcons not register any stats in the game. Those players were FB Tony Fiammetta and TE Gary Barnidge.
Analysis: Neither of these players contributes enough statistically to matter in Fantasy. Leave them on waivers for the Week 11 game.
News: Panthers K Rhys Lloyd, RB Mike Goodson, RB Tony Fiammetta and WR Kenny Moore didn't record offensive statistics Week 8 at Arizona.
Analysis: None of these players ever does enough statistically to matter in Fantasy. Leave them all on waivers.
News: Panthers RB Tony Fiammetta, WR Kenny Moore and QB Matt Moore didn't record offensive statistics Week 7 against the Bills.
Analysis: None of these players ever contributes enough statistically to matter in Fantasy. Leave them all on waivers.
News: Carolina had the following players suit up for Week 6 at Tampa Bay but not receive stats: TE Gary Barnidge, FB Tony Fiammetta, FB Brad Hoover, WR Dwayne Jarrett and backup QB Matt Moore. Moore did not get into the game.
Analysis: Jarrett has two receptions in four games for 19 yards. He's clearly not a viable Fantasy option as the Panthers just don't seem to throw to him. Leave him, and the other players listed above, on waivers for Week 7 against Buffalo.
News: The following Carolina Panthers did not stat during their Week 5 win over the Redskins: FB Tony Fiammetta, WR Dwayne Jarret and TE Gary Barnidge. Backup QB Matt Moore did not play in the game.
Analysis: Jarrett has two receptions in four games for 19 yards. He's clearly not a viable Fantasy option as the Panthers just don't seem to throw to him. Leave him, and the other players listed above, on waivers for Week 6 at Tampa Bay.
News: Carolina FB Tony Fiammetta got the start at FB for the Panthers on Monday night in a loss to Dallas. He did not receive a carry or make a catch in the game.
Analysis: Fiammetta is around for his blocking capabilities and likely will go without stats quite often this season. He is not a viable Fantasy option. The Panthers have a bye Week 4 and play Washington in Week 5.
News: QB Matt Moore, RB Mike Goodson, RB Tony Fiammetta and TE Gary Barnidge did not record an offensive statistic in Week 2 at Atlanta.
Analysis: None of the players on this list are expected to have any Fantasy appeal this season. Leave them on waivers until further notice.
News: The Panthers have listed QB Matt Moore (third QB), RB Tyrell Sutton, DB C.J. Wilson, RB Tony Fiammetta, DL Ra'Shon Harris and LB Hilee Taylor as inactive for Week 1 vs. Philadelphia.
Analysis: There are no real surprises here. Most of these players are reserves or special teamers for the Panthers and have little to no Fantasy value when active. Keep them reserved in all Fantasy formats for Week 1.
News: The Panthers plucked an excellent blocking fullback in Syracuse's Tony Fiammetta in Round 4 of the 2009 draft.
Analysis: Fiammetta will likely get a touch or two each week when he finds the starting job, but he'll mainly blast holes open for DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart as part of the Panthers run game. His meager totals won't be appealing to any Fantasy owners this summer.
