Jonathan Stewart looks fine in return to action


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart returned from a three-game absence in Week 7 against the Packers and looked well enough that he should be the top option in the backfield moving forward.

Stewart racked up 55 yards on 14 carries in his best performance of the season, and added 12 yards on his lone reception. He looked healthy and ran the ball fairly well, though not so well that we should expect him to be a star moving forward. Those days seem to be well in the past for Stewart, who has not averaged 4.0 yards per carry in a season since 2011.

Stewart is a starting running back, though, and should continue to see the bulk of the playing time, so Fantasy owners looking for help will want to put in a claim for him. However, he probably won't be much use in Week 8, with a tough matchup against the Seahawks on the way. 


Panthers' Jonathan Stewart held under 70 yards of total offense


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart returned to action Sunday, but was held under 70 yards of total offense in a Week 8 defeat to the Packers.

Stewart was held to only 11 yards on the ground before bouncing back with a respectable second half performance. He rushed for 13 yards on the final play of the third quarter and broke for runs of 18, 9 and 5 yards to start the fourth quarter. He finished the game with 55 yards on 14 carries, averaging 3.9 yards per attempt. He was thrown to twice and finished with one catch for 12 yards.

Stewart will look to get back on track Week 8 at home against the Seahawks.


Panthers WR Benjamin, RB Stewart cleared for Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) and Jonathan Stewart (knee) are both active for Sunday's game against the Packers in Week 7. Benjamin was questionable heading into Sunday, but passed the league's concussion protocol prior to the game. Stewart will be making his return from a three-game absence.

Even as a starter, Jonathan Stewart a risky play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) After missing three games in a row with a knee injury, Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is set to return to the starting lineup in Week 7. Will the Packers have a warm welcome awaiting him this Sunday?

The Packers have been decent against the run this season, though they have allowed opposing backs to rack up 20.3 Fantasy points per game. That number is much lower over the last two weeks, with the Vikings and Dolphins' backs racking up just 24 combined points, and that might be more in line with what we should expect from the Panthers' running game in Week 7.

The Panthers have been one of the league's worst rushing offenses this season, and it hasn't mattered much who is carrying the ball. They are averaging just 3.4 yards per carry on the season, and Stewart was at just 3.0 before his injury.

Even if Stewart gets a solid workload, he still has to prove he can be a productive and healthy back. It's possible he does so as soon as Week 7, but you are better off taking a wait-and-see approach.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart expects to start Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Stewart said he "felt pretty good" while practicing Wednesday and indicated he will start Week 7 against the Packers, per The Charlotte Observer.

Wednesday was the first time Stewart practiced in full since getting hurt. He was limited in practice last week and was a game-time decision Week 6 before being ruled inactive.

"Jonathan looked good. He had a good day," Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. "We’ll see how he is (Thursday), but he took the majority of the reps. He took all the reps that were slated for him as well. I’m excited to see him on the football field and hopefully there’s no residual (Thursday) and he’ll be ready to roll again at practice."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Panthers RBs Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams skip practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Panthers running backs Jonathan Stewart (knee) and DeAngelo Williams (ankle) were both held out of practice Wednesday due to injuries, according to the Associated Press.

Panthers' Jonathan Stewart closer to return than DeAngelo Williams

Both backs missed Week 5 against Chicago due to injuries. Williams suffered a high ankle sprain in a Week 4 loss to the Ravens, which caused him to miss Sunday's game. Stewart played the first three games before being sidelined with a knee injury in Week 4 and 5.

The Panthers will travel to Cincinnati for a Week 6 clash against the Bengals.


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.

Fozzy Whittaker appears to be top back Sunday for Panthers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) The injury-ravaged Panthers backfield is likely to have unheralded Fozzy Whittaker as its featured runner Sunday against Chicago. DeAngelo Williams (ankle has been ruled out while Jonathan Stewart (knee) is doubtful.
