Panthers | Jonathan Stewart optimistic

Sat, 26 Jul 2014 12:24:34 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) said he's not too concerned about his hamstring injury. Stewart said recovering from his hamstring injury will be easier than recovering from his previous ankle injuries.

FANTASY TIP: At this point in Stewart's career, he is anything but reliable. The Panthers running back to own in 2014 is DeAngelo Williams, while RB Mike Tolbert should see a good amount of short-yardage and goal line work. Consider Stewart an RB4 in standard scoring leagues.
