'Strong possibility' RB DeAngelo Williams gets released


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) With Jonathan Stewart shining down the stretch and earning the right to start next season, there's a "strong possibility" the Panthers will release running back DeAngelo Williams, reports ESPN.com. The move would save Carolina $2 million against the cap.

Williams, 31, played in just six games this season due to injuries. He averaged 3.5 yards per carry and did not score.


Panthers' Jonathan Stewart performs well despite limited touches


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart performed well on Saturday against the Seahawks.

Stewart did so despite limited touches. He received just 13 rushing attempts, gaining 70 yards. Stewart didn't break off many big plays, with his longest run going for 16 yards, but was consistently able to pick up solid gains. Stewart wasn't much of a factor in the passing game, hauling in one catch for 4 yards. 


Jonathan Stewart leads the way for Carolina in playoff win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2015) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart had 24 carries for 123 yards and one touchdown in Carolina's 27-16 win over the Cardinals in the wild-card round of the NFC playoffs.

Stewart ran effectively Saturday, including a 35-yard run from his own goal line to get the Panthers out of a dangerous situation. 

Stewart scored the first touchdown of the game when he took it in fom 13 yards out, evading two tacklers in the process.

The Panthers will wait until Sunday to find out whether they will travel to Seattle or Green Bay for the divisional round of the playoffs.


DeAngelo Williams active, Jonathan Stewart to start for Carolina


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2015) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is active and will play Saturday against the Cardinals, but Jonathan Stewart is listed as the starter, the team announced pregame.

It will be Williams first game back on the field in the last five games after suffering a broken bone in his hand. Williams was probable heading into Week 17 against the Falcons, but was a late scratch.

In that four game span, Stewart has averaged 5.1 yards per carry with two touchdowns total. He's rushed for 401 yards on 79 carries.

The Panthers are 5 1/2-point favorites Saturday against the Cardinals.


Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams 'ready to roll'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/31/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera told the Associated Press that running back DeAngelo Williams looks "ready to roll" for Saturday's playoff game against the Cardinals. Williams has missed four straight games with a broken bone in his hand.

He'll likely mix in with Jonathan Stewart, who leads the team with 809 rushing yards and has averaged 4.6 yards per carry.

Carolina is a 6-point home favorite.


Panthers coach Ron Rivera not ready to name starting running back


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera was once again not saying who will be the starting running back for Carolina heading into the wild card matchup with the Cardinals Saturday.

Running back Jonathan Stewart started in Week 17 and had 13 carries for 49 yards in the Panthers 34-3 win over the Falcons. DeAngelo Williams was expected to play and listed as probable, but was inactive at gametime.

Williams has now missed four straight games with a broken bone in his hand.

"When he’s healthy and ready to go he’ll get his opportunities to get on the field," Rivera said.

The Panthers are 5 1/2-point favorites for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart registers 69 yards of total offense


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart registered 69 yards of total offense in Sunday's 34-3 victory over the Falcons in Week 17.

Stewart got the start again and took 13 carries for 49 yards. He also caught all two of his targets for 20 yards. He finishes the regular season with 809 yards and three touchdowns. 

Carolina will face Arizona in the first round of the playoffs next weekend.


Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams practices fully


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/25/2014) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who's missed three straight games with a hand injury, practiced fully Wednesday and is on track to return Sunday against the Falcons.

However, coach Ron Rivera has indicated he'll stick with Jonathan Stewart as the starting tailback. Stewart has run for 437 yards over the past four weeks.

Carolina is a 4-point underdog at the Georgia Dome.


Panthers to stick with RB Jonathan Stewart vs. Falcons


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera told reporters during his Monday news conference that he'll stick with running back Jonathan Stewart moving forward, per the Associated Press. Stewart's running mate, DeAngelo Williams, has sat out three straight games with a hands injury. Over the last four weeks, Stewart has rushed for 437 yards, which is the most by any running back in the NFL.

The Panthers will travel to Atlanta to face the Falcons for the NFC South title. Carolina is currently a 3 1/2-point underdog in Week 17.


Jonathan Stewart proving he can still make a difference


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is closing out the season with a flourish, as he rushed for 100-plus yards for the second time in three games in Week 16's 17-13 win over the Browns.

Stewart bounced back from a subpar Week 15 by rushing the ball 24 times for 122 yards. The latter is his second-best mark of the season, and he also added his first receiving touchdown of the year, on two catches and 7 yards.

Stewart has really come on strong over the last four games, and has taken on a larger share of the work as a result of DeAngelo Williams' injury. He is averaging 109.3 yards per game over that stretch, and now has 760 yards on the season, his second-best total since 2011. Watching him take on a bigger workload while remaining healthy has to be a good sign for his value moving forward in his career, and he should probably be viewed as a must-start Fantasy option in Week 17 against the Falcons. 


Panthers back Stewart runs wild again in Week 16 win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Panthers featured back Jonathan Stewart continued to sizzle Sunday in the absence of injured backfield mate DeAngelo Williams. He keyed a defeat of the Browns.

Stewart not only caught a 9-yard touchdown pass five minutes into the second half, but he rushed for a game-high 122 yards on a season-high 24 carries. His twisting, turning 30 yard rush in which he faked out several defenders allowed his team to go into victory formation.

He has 437 yards on 78 carries for a 5.6 YPC average over the last four games. He will try to maintain his momentum when the Panthers play at Atlanta in Week 17.


DeAngelo Williams could play Sunday wearing a cast


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is getting fitted for a cast he'd wear if he returns to action Sunday against the Browns, reports ESPN.com. Williams fractured his right hand in the Week 13 loss at Minnesota.

Williams was limited in Thursday's practice. He hasn't caught passes, and the team is concerned about how the injury will affect his blocking, the report said.

But if Williams returns, he'll cut into the sizable workload Jonathan Stewart has received the past two weeks when he averaged 21.5 touches.


Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams gets in limited practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who's missed two straight games with a hand injury, practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. Running back Jonathan Stewart averaged 21.5 touches the past two weeks, and his workload could take a hit if Williams returns.

Carolina hosts the Browns on Sunday.


Backup quarterback doesn't help Jonathan Stewart


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) Cam Newton's absence because of two fractures in his lower back may have led to better receiving numbers for wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and tight end Greg Olsen, but it didn't help running back Jonathan Stewart, who couldn't repeat his 155-yard performance from a week earlier with DeAngelo Williams again sidelined by a fractured hand Week 15 against Tampa Bay, delivering less than half that on two more carries.

He started out well enough, picking up 53 yards on 10 carries in the first half, but with the Buccaneers stacking the box in the second half, daring backup quarterback Derek Anderson to beat them, Stewart could muster only 20 yards on 12 carries.

Helping his case is that Anderson did in fact beat the Buccaneers. Still, it's pretty clear he's the weak link on offense right now. As favorable as this matchup appeared to be for Stewart, he failed to deliver on a golden opportunity with Williams sidelined, making him less than a slam-dunk start in Fantasy whether or not Williams returns for Week 16 against Cleveland.

More likely than not, though, you'll start him. Running backs who get 20 carries aren't so common these days.


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart loses fumble in red zone Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart rushed for a team-high 73 yards on 22 carries during a 19-17 win Week 15 against the Bucs. His longest carry went 15 yards. 

Stewart, who had just one catch for 6 yards, had some issues holding onto the football Sunday. He fumbled twice, but the only fumble he lost came down in the red zone when he coughed up the football at the Bucs' 3-yard line in the third quarter.

The Panthers are back in action Week 16 against the Browns.


Panthers list seven probables for Week 15


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) The Panthers have ruled out quarterback Cam Newton (back) and guard Amini Silatolu (knee) for Week 14 against Tampa Bay. Running back DeAngelo Williams (hand) was the only player on Carolina's final injury report ruled doubtful for the game.

The following players were deemed as probable: Wide receiver Philly Brown (shoulder), cornerback Carrington Byndom (illness), center Ryan Kalil (rest), linebacker A.J. Klein (knee), tight end Greg Olsen (knee), guard Chris Scott (foot), guard Amini Silatolu (knee) and running back Jonathan Stewart (hip).


Jonathan Stewart looking like a start


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/11/2014) With Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams sidelined by a hand injury Week 14 at New Orleans, Jonathan Stewart, who normally splits carries with him, got a chance to carry the load and exploded for 155 yards and a touchdown. So with Williams also expected to miss Week 15 against Tampa Bay, should you expect more of the same?

It's no guarantee, of course. Williams also missed Weeks 7 and 8 with a high ankle sprain, and Stewart averaged just 14.5 carries for 62.5 yards in those games. But he was returning from his own injury, having missed the previous three weeks with a sprained knee, and may not have been in the best condition to handle a full workload.

Plus, the Panthers are coming off their most impressive win of the season. Why would they shy away from what made it such a success, especially since the Buccaneers rank only 20th against the run, allowing 115.8 yards per game?

I'm going to suggest you don't look a gift horse in the mouth here. Williams is out again, so take advantage. Both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank Stewart as a top-12 running back for Week 15.


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hip) limited Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to a hip injury.

Stewart suffered the minor injury in Sunday's win over the Saints, and coach Ron Rivera indicated that Stewart's limited practice was a precaution and that he should practice Thursday, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Stewart racked up 155 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Week 14. If he avoids a setback during the week, he should be ready to roll for Sunday's matchup with the Buccaneers.


Jonathan Stewart shows what could be


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) Basically since he broke into the league in 2008, Jonathan Stewart has had to share the workload with DeAngelo Williams, typically playing the slightly lesser role in a two-man committee. But Week 14 at New Orleans was one of those rare opportunities for him to show what he could do with Williams out of the picture, and boy was it something.

Williams exploded for 155 yards on 20 carries, the most impressive of them being a 69-yard burst up the middle for a touchdown early in the third quarter. He was consistent otherwise, though, averaging 4.5 yards on his other 19 carries, none for more than 15 yards.

As effective as he was flying solo, it kind of makes you wonder why the Panthers would bring back Williams, but as long as it's been going on, this one game isn't going to be the one that ends it.

Coach Ron Rivera initially said Williams was day to day with the hand injury, so chances are he'll be able to return before it's completely healed. Stewart looked great in this one, but he had the benefit of a favorable matchup and an out-of-the-ordinary role. He's startable for as long as Williams is out, but understand that may not be for long.


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart runs wild in Sunday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart enjoyed his best game of the year Sunday. And it wasn't even close.

Thanks greatly to Stewart, the defeat of New Orleans wasn't close either. He rushed for 155 yards, his highest total since exploding for 207 against the Giants in 2009. His 69-yard touchdown sprint untouched to start the third quarter all but put the Saints away.

Stewart, who averaged 7.8 yards per carry, will try for another big game against the Buccaneers next Sunday.


Panthers' Jonathan Stewart gains 85 yards on ground Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart accounted for 85 rushing yards on 12 attempts during a 31-13 loss to the Vikings Sunday.

The 85 rushing yards were a season high for Stewart. He also added two receptions on two targets for 25 yards.

After the game, coach Ron Rivera said Stewart received the majority of the carries in the second half because running back DeAngelo Williams suffered a hand injury, reports The Charlotte Observer.

The Panthers will play at New Orleans Week 14.


DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart fail to make an impact Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Panthers running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart were held in check during Sunday's loss to the Falcons in Week 11.

Williams got the start and the majority of the carries. He rushed for 41 yards on 10 carries, averaging 4.1 yards per attempt. Stewart carried the ball seven times for 24 yards, averaging 3.4 yards per carry. He also caught three passes for 15 yards in a 19-17 defeat.

Carolina will face Minnesota in Week 13.


Change in roles doesn't change Panthers backs' fortunes


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Panthers tried to kick-start their running game in Week 11 against the Falcons, but found little success in a 19-17 loss.

DeAngelo Williams got the start and a heavier workload than Jonathan Stewart, who had been the primary option leading into the game. Williams was the more effective back out of the two, rushing for 41 yards on 10 carries to Stewart's 24 yards on seven carries, but it didn't exactly get the offense going. Stewart was still more of a factor in the passing game, catching three passes to Williams' one.

At this point, it's pretty clear Fantasy owners just need to stay away from the Panthers backfield. Maybe if they settled on one guy there might be something here, but neither player gets enough playing time to justify a starting Fantasy role with the playoffs looming. 


Panthers' Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams cleared for Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) As expected, Panthers running backs Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and DeAngelo Williams (foot) were both ruled active for Week 11 against Atlanta. Both players were on the injury report this week, but weren't in any danger of missing game action. Williams is expected to start for Carolina.
