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.

Panthers RBs Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams ready for Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) Panthers running backs Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and DeAngelo Williams (foot) were both able to practice in full Friday and are labeled probable for Sunday's game against Atlanta, according to the Associated Press. Williams is expected to start Week 11, according to coach Ron Rivera.

Jonathan Stewart more effective than DeAngelo Williams again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) Panthers running backs Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams got roughly the same workload in Monday's loss at Philadelphia. Stewart proved more effective for the second straight week and scored his second touchdown this season on a 1-yard run.

Williams started and lost a fumble on his second carry. He finished with 13 carries for 31 yards (2.4 ypc) and caught all three of his targets for 17 yards. Stewart ran 11 times for 36 yards (3.3 ypc) and secured all four of his targets for 23 yards.

They'll play the Falcons on Sunday.


Rivera: Panthers RBs Williams, Stewart need more touches


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Ron Rivera emphasized after the Thursday night loss to New Orleans that Panthers backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart need more touches going forward. The game marked the first time all season the pair shared the backfield.

Both carried eight times with Stewart earning 40 yards to 20 for Williams, who added a 30-yard gain on a screen pass. Rivera was unhappy with that distribution.

"It's good to have them back there," Rivera told the team website. "We are going to have to continue to find more and more chances to use them, more and more situations where we have to put the ball in their hands. They showed today that they deserve to have the ball in their hands more, and we are going to have to work on that. We have to ... take some pressure off the quarterback."

Quarterback Cam Newton did not respond well to pressure against New Orleans, completing just 10 of 28 passes.


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart leads the way Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart led the club in rushing Thursday against the Saints.

Stewart picked up 46 yards on eight carries. He received the same number of carries as DeAngelo Williams, but outperformed him on the ground by 26 yards. Stewart, however, was not targeted in the passing game. 

He'll look for more Week 10 against the Eagles. 


Ron Rivera says RB DeAngelo Williams will start Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams looked good in Tuesday's practice and will start Thursday against the Saints, coach Ron Rivera told NFL Network. Williams missed the past four games with an ankle injury.

He'll split the workload with Jonathan Stewart, who rushed 16 times for 79 yards and caught three passes for 15 yards Sunday against the Seahawks.


Steer clear of Panthers backfield timeshare


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart has had no competition for carries over the last few weeks, but that could change in Week 9 against the Saints.

Fellow back DeAngelo Williams has been spotted on the practice field in the run up to the game, and is expected to be back in time for Thursday's game. That complicates things for Stewart, who has been decent, but unspectacular in two games as the featured back, scoring 14 combined Fantasy points.

Williams might be eased back into action, but he will almost certainly cut into Stewart's playing time anyways. Stewart hasn't exactly blown us away anyways, so any hope for him to be a viable Fantasy option rested on his getting a lot of work. Even against a middle-of-the-pack Saints rush defense, neither player makes much sense as anything more than a desperate play for Week 9. 


Jonathan Stewart's role not in doubt


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart showed a bit more life in Week 8, and he did so against a tough matchup in a loss to the Seahawks Sunday.

Stewart ran for a season-high 79 yards on 16 carries, and averaged 4.9 yards per carry as result. He added three receptions for 15 yards, in what was by far his best performance of the season. And, the better news for Fantasy owners is, he was the only running back on the team to even touch the ball more than once, a good indication of what his role is on this team.

Until DeAngelo Williams can return from his ankle injury, Williams is the unquestioned No. 1 option in the team's running game. Though he is no longer the dynamic playmaker he was in his younger days, running backs with no competition for their role are hard to find in today's NFL. If he keeps getting 15-plus touches, Stewart probably belongs in most Fantasy lineups as a low-end running back or flex option. v


Panthers backup runners do little Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Panthers backup running backs did little Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Carolina was content to run with Jonathan Stewart and Cam Newton most of the game. Chris Ogbonnaya had just one carry, picking up nine yards. Wideout Jason Avant even managed a carry, but gained just one yard. Darrin Reaves also gained one yard on his only carry.

They'll look for more Week 9 against the Saints. 


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart is steady Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart turned in an average performance Week 8 against the Seahawks. 

Stewart carried the ball 16 times for 79 yards. He also hauled in three receptions for 15 yards. The Panthers seemed content to run Stewart throughout the game. He mostly responded with solid gains, and opened up the option for Cam Newton to rip off some runs. Though he had a decent game, Stewart was not a threat near the red zone. 

He'll look for more Week 9 against the Saints. 


Panthers list RB Chris Ogbonnaya questionable for Sunday


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.

Taking a look at the waiver wire for running backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list. 


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. 


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart named Week 7 starter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said running back Jonathan Stewart (knee) will start Week 7 at Green Bay, per the team's official website. Stewart missed his previous three games with a knee injury. He has 88 yards and a touchdown on 29 attempts this season.

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."

Panthers without Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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 could be sans DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
