Panthers | Limited practice for DeAngelo Williams

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:12:55 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) was limited at practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($3,000) has missed the last two games, and Jonathan Stewart ($5,000) has looked great in his absence. If Williams returns, it could cut into Stewart's workload against the Cleveland Browns, who have allowed an average of 22.20 fantasy points to runners in the last four weeks. Stewart should be flex-worthy, at least.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) probably will not be able to play in Week 15, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 11:39:34 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams not practicing

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 12:58:01 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) is sitting out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($3,200) is likely to be questionable against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so he's not a very good option at FantasyScore at all. If he misses another game, Jonathan Stewart ($5,000) should be another fine buy with an increased workload.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams will return to mix

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 13:12:22 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) will be in the mix in the backfield when he returns from a broken bone in his right hand, but head coach Ron Rivera would not say if he would start over RB Jonathan Stewart, who has been strong in Williams' absence. "My preference. That's the only reason," Rivera said. "DeAngelo is a part of who we are. We'll see. We'll see how it is. It will be a day-by-day process with him. As the hand gets stronger and heals up, we'll go forward." The offensive line was solid in the Week 14 win over the New Orleans Saints, and they helped Stewart run for 155 yards. QB Cam Newton also ran for 83 yards on the ground, while RB Mike Tolbert had 62 total yards and RB Fozzy Whittaker had 31 total yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Williams will cost $3,200 heading into Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but his iffy status should steer you away from him. Stewart ($5,000) should remain intriguing for at least another week with this juicy matchup against the Bucs.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams day-to-day

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 09:55:15 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) is considered day-to-day because of his hand injury, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor his practice participation during the week to have a better idea of his status for Week 15. Jonathan Stewart played well in Week 14 and could receive a majority of the carries when Williams returns to the lineup. Owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid using Williams this week.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams ruled out in Week 14

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 13:48:35 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) missed practice for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 5, and has been ruled out for Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Now that we know Williams won't play against the Saints, you should look to get Jonathan Stewart ($4,900) in your FantasyScore lineups as a great value play against a New Orleans defense that struggles mightily to slow down opposing running backs.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams out again Thursday

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 13:27:28 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: A fractured finger is the latest ailment to sideline Williams, and although he's listed as day-to-day, it doesn't look promising for him in Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints. Stay away from him at FantasyScore. Jonathan Stewart ($4,900) looks ripe for the taking, though, as the Saints haven't been good against the run all year long.

Panthers | No practice for DeAngelo Williams

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 10:29:15 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($3,200) probably faces uphill odds to play this weekend against the New Orleans Saints. It's a shame, since the Saints present Carolina runners with a juicy matchup at FantasyScore. That said, we like Jonathan Stewart ($4,900), who had a big game in Week 13, as a nice value play against the Saints.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams to see specialist?

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 14:43:34 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) could see a hand specialist this week, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Williams fractured his hand in Week 13 but could still play in Week 14 if the swelling in his hand goes down.

Fantasy Tip: If Williams doesn't play, Jonathan Stewart would once again get the start. Whoever starts will have a nice matchup versus the New Orleans Saints, who allow 22.8 fantasy points per game to running backs. While Stewart hasn't done anything special this year, he is a cheaper FantasyScore option at $4,900.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams day-to-day

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 10:56:57 -0800

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (finger) is considered day-to-day because of a fractured bone in his middle finger, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera said Williams could play in Week 14 if the swelling in the finger goes down.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch his practice participation during the week to have a better idea of his status for Week 14. Owners may want to avoid using Williams even if he is active for the game because he has not been very productive this season.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams may have broken hand

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 10:12:58 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) may have a broken hand and could meet with a specialist to have his hand examined, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Williams will have to miss time with his hand injury. Jonathan Stewart likely would receive a majority of the carries if Williams misses some games, but owners likely would have better options to use at the position.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams will play

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 12:44:06 -0800

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 14, and is probable for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Even with a nice price of $3,700 in FantasyScore, Williams should probably be avoided this week since he may not be at full strength. Jonathan Stewart may end up getting more work as the game goes on, and should be considered for your roster.

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 12:15:18 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Williams could still be nursing the ankle injury that has forced him to miss some time this year. If Williams is unable to go, Jonathan Stewart would get the starting nod and is favorably priced at $4,100 on FantasyScore.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams doesn't do much

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 09:22:52 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams had only eight carries for 20 yards in the Week 9 game against the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Oct. 30, in his first game back after missing four straight contests with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers likely wanted to ease Williams back into game action, but regardless, this is a backfield that will continue to include Jonathan Stewart when he's healthy. Williams and Stewart are midrange flex plays, at best, each week.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams to start

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 10:42:59 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) will start the team's Week 9 game against the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Oct. 30, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($4,100; 8.2% of cap) could be a nice sleeper option for your FantasyScore lineups if you're willing to trust him in his first week back against a poor Saints defense. Jonathan Stewart ($4,300) should still see carries, but he's much less attractive with Williams back in the fold.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) was limited in practice Tuesday, Oct. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is still expected to start Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints. He may not see a whole lot of playing time coming off the injury and with Jonathan Stewart still in the mix. You can probably do better than his $4,100 price on FantasyScore.

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 10:31:09 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is expected to play in Week 9, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is expected to return in Week 9 Thursday, Oct. 30.

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 10:34:30 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Williams wasn't expected to play. Jonathan Stewart ($4,300; 8.6% of cap) should see the bulk of the carries against the Seahawks this weekend, but he's not a smart play at FantasyScore.

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 13:26:05 -0700

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 09:45:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: It does not look like Williams will be able to play in Week 8 at this point, but things could change over the next few days. If he does not play, Jonathan Stewart likely will receive most of the work at running back and could be a nice cheaper option at the flex option for owners on FantasyScore since he only costs $4,300.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams to return this week?

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 11:49:06 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) will reportedly return to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't necessarily mean Williams will be able to play Week 8. Keep tabs on his status throughout the week. If Williams is unable to go, Jonathan Stewart would probably get another start.

Fantasy Tip: Jonathan Stewart, Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya could all receive work at running back while Williams is out, but Stewart probably has the most fantasy value out of all of the players.

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 09:49:25 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Williams is not likely to play in the team's Week 6 game.

This is probably a situation to avoid this week in FantasyScore.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart getting closer

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 10:05:52 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) is closer to returning than RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle), according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Stewart can get on the practice field before deciding on their lineup. Stewart probably would be the starter in Week 6 if he is active, but he may still be limited. Darrin Reaves and Chris Ogbonnaya received work during the team's Week 5 game and probably would share carries again if Stewart is not able to play.

Updating an earlier report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is out for Week 5, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Darrin Reaves ($3,000; 6% of your cap) is expected to start and makes a bare-minimum flex option on FantasyScore. Chris Ogbannaya could also figure into the mix, but now there are reports Jonathan Stewart (knee) could return. Stewart ($3,600; 7.2% of your cap) would be a decent bargain bin flex option if he's able to suit up.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams doubtful

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 09:46:09 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is doubtful to play in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Williams is still sore, but he doesn't have any structural damage.

Fantasy Tip: As if the Panthers needed another injury to their backfield. Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert are also both out. That'll likely leave them with Darrin Reaves as the main ball carrier in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears.

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 06:23:29 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Darrin Reaves would figure to get the bulk of the work. He's worth a flier in case you catch lightning in a bottle, but he's probably not worth a start unless desperate next week.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in the Week 4 game against the Baltimore Ravens, according to a league source. Williams will be evaluated further Monday, Sept. 29.
