Panthers | DeAngelo Williams expected to play in Week 3

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 10:11:46 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh) is expected to return to practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and be ready to play in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Williams sat out in Week 2 with a thigh injury that flared up earlier in the week. Williams led the team with 14 carries and 72 yards rushing in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Williams will push Jonathan Stewart's involvement down. Neither back is all that attractive at FantasyScore, but if Williams is close to full health, he'll likely see the majority of the touches again.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams to work out

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 11:00:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh) is scheduled to work out Tuesday, Sept. 16, in order to test his injured thigh.

Fantasy Tip: Williams missed the team's Week 2 game because of the injury, and his status for Week 3 is uncertain. Jonathan Stewart likely would get most of the work again in Week 3 if Williams misses another game. Stewart could be a flex option on FantasyScore and in most other leagues.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams inactive today

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 08:42:51 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh) is officially inactive for Week 2 Sunday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: RB Jonathan Stewart is expected to start, but Fozzy Whittaker could see action as well. Stewart will only cost $4,100 (8.2% of your cap) on FantasyScore and is a decent flex option on the cheap.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams questionable

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 10:42:44 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 12, but has not been ruled out for the team's Week 2 game.

Fantasy Tip: With a FantasyScore price of $4,700 (9.4% of cap), there are better options on the board without the health risks for Week 2.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams sits out

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 15:06:42 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (thigh) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Pair the injury news with Williams' ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) limited usage and there is little to like about him in Week 2.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart to miss Week 16

Wed, 18 Dec 2013 12:10:55 -0800

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) will not play Week 16. Rivera would not say if Stewart will be able to play Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert likely will continue to get most of the work at running back. Williams should be seen as a No. 2 running back or flex option this week. Tolbert could be a flex option but could also be bench if an owner has better options.

Panthers | Believe Jonathan Stewart has torn MCL

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 10:42:33 -0800

The Carolina Panthers believe RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) has a torn medial collateral ligament.

Fantasy Tip: DeAngelo Williams likely would get most of the carries while Stewart is out and will be more valuable in fantasy leagues. Mike Tolbert probably will also receive more play time, which will help his value.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams will start

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 09:49:34 -0800

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) will start Week 14.

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 12:00:04 -0800

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 11:57:19 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is probable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: With DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert both likely to play, Stewart is a weak play at best. If you have a better option, take it.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams limited in practice

Wed, 04 Dec 2013 12:09:05 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Williams felt fine after missing Week 13 and said he expects to suit up in Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints. Williams may split a little more of the workload with Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert if he's not 100 percent. However, he remains the lead back and is at least an RB3 or flex play.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart does little

Sun, 01 Dec 2013 19:03:08 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart made the start in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) inactive. Stewart ran 14 times for just 39 yards, and he had two catches for three yards.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart did little with his opportunity, and was actually outrushed by QB Cam Newton (5-68-1) and RB Mike Tolbert (9-48-0). Stewart is only worth a look as a flex fantasy option in deeper leagues if he starts again, but the team might be better off leaning more on Tolbert.

Sun, 01 Dec 2013 06:31:09 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) is very doubtful for the team's Week 13 game.

Fantasy Tip: Even if he can get on the field, Williams is likely to be limited. Look in another direction this week.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) did not practice Friday, Nov. 29.

Panthers | Entire backfield misses practice

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:27:29 -0800

Carolina Panthers RBs DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps), Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and Mike Tolbert (knee) all missed practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers are likely just resting their three-headed rushing attack for this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but stay tuned the rest of the week. Williams' value has taken a hit with J-Stew splitting carries with him. Williams remains the lead back, slightly, but he's more of a flex in a tough matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13.

Panthers | RBs split carries

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 08:16:04 -0800

Carolina Panthers RBs DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert had 13, nine and six carries, respectively, in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: All three are worth rostering, but Williams appears to be losing his grip as the most utilized back. Stewart was effective in his first action and should continue to cut into Williams' share.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart to be activated from PUP

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 10:45:53 -0700

The Carolina Panthers will activate RB Jonathan Stewart (ankles) from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Nov. 2, and he'll make his season debut in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. RB DeAngelo Williams will remain the starter, though, and he practiced Friday, Nov. 1, after missing the last two days with a bruised quadriceps. Head coach Ron Rivera wants Stewart to get six to 10 carries against the Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: J-Stew should be owned in all leagues by now. His role will be limited initially, but he could gain more carries as he gets his legs underneath him. This limits the values of Williams and Mike Tolbert and makes playing any of the three a crapshoot on most weeks.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams misses practice

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 13:22:07 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers are optimistic that Williams will play in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons, but two straight missed practices will make his owners uneasy. He could relinquish carries to Mike Tolbert and Jonathan Stewart. Tolbert's value as an RB3 or flex play is strengthened if Williams is limited.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart looks good

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 13:41:20 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankles), who is still currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list, looked and felt great in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, and the team expects him to be active in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. "I feel ready," Stewart said. "Today was a good step forward putting the pads on. It felt good going out there and hitting the field full speed with some contact and running plays with contact."

Stewart had the majority of snaps in practice with RB DeAngelo Williams (quadriceps) being held out for precautionary reasons. Head coach Ron Rivera continues to say that Williams will remain the starter and that RB Mike Tolbert will continue to see touches. "We can't force things," Rivera said. "We can't. What we've got to do is Mike (Shula, offensive coordinator) has to continue to call his game the way he wants to call it, and at the end of the day when you get your opportunity make the best of it."

Fantasy Tip: The three-headed monster in Carolina is back. Even though Williams and Tolbert will continue to see their touches, Stewart's return will make them less attractive, especially after a few weeks when he has his legs under him in game situations. DAW is more of an RB3 now with Tolbert and J-Stew representing RB depth for your fantasy squad.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart likely active in Week 9

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 12:17:59 -0700

Outside of a setback, it is likely that Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) will be active in the team's Week 9 game.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart should be seen as nothing more than an option to be picked up off the waiver wire in deeper leagues at this point. He is likely to be eased back into action and is still behind DeAngelo Williams on the depth chart.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart expects to play in Week 9

Tue, 22 Oct 2013 13:27:55 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) is expecting to return to play in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. He returned to practice for the first time Tuesday, Oct. 22, since injuring his right ankle Nov. 26 of last season. He will remain on the Physically Unable to Perform list for the team's game Thursday, Oct. 24. Stewart is expected to split time with RBs DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert when he returns, but head coach Ron Rivera said Williams will remain the "premiere guy."

Panthers | Timetable unknown for Jonathan Stewart

Tue, 22 Oct 2013 09:34:31 -0700

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera is unsure when RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) will be able to return to game action after he resumes practicing this week. "We'll have to see," said Rivera, not ruling out Stewart for Thursday, Oct. 24. "He had a really good week last week, but again we're going to go through the whole procedure and make sure we're really doing things right with him after each day." Stewart could be ready by Nov. 3 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart could return in Week 9 against the Falcons, but we're not holding our breath. J-Stew should be picked up if he's on the waiver wire, but he'll likely be eased into action behind DeAngelo Williams, who is having a fine season. Stewart should be seen as nothing more than RB depth right now.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart wants to practice before returning

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 13:34:58 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) said he wants to practice for more than a week before returning to the field. He said he is managing the pain and soreness in his ankle but still has his speed and explosiveness. Stewart said he plans to play at some point this season.

Fantasy Tip: It appears DeAngelo Williams has a hold on the starting running back job, so Stewart may return as a backup. Owners should look at Stewart as a flex option or as a handcuff to Williams. Stewart could also be used as depth at running back for some fantasy owners.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams surprises in win

Sun, 22 Sep 2013 18:06:01 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams posted his first 100-yard rushing game of the season in Week 3 against the New York Giants, carrying 23 times for 120 yards and a 5.2-yard average. He did not find the end zone, but FB Mike Tolbert was able to get in on a 2-yard scamper in the first half.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Williams and his fantasy owners, the Panthers have a bye in Week 4. When he returns in Week 5, Williams will be a solid low-end RB2 or flex play in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams blames himself for loss

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 16:48:22 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams carried 16 times for 76 yards in the Week 1 game against the Seattle Seahawks, and he added three catches for 14 yards. However, he had a costly lost fumble late in the fourth quarter, and he blamed himself for the loss afterwards. "It ultimately came down to that fumble, let's just get that out of the way," Williams said. "It was my fault."

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fumble, Williams is still a viable RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills.

Panthers | Kenjon Barner not active

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 09:01:21 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Kenjon Barner (foot) is not active in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: This is just a reminder; we knew that Barner wouldn't play a few days ago. This is another reminder that DeAngelo Williams will see the lion's share of the workload with Jonathan Stewart out for at least the first six weeks of the season. Williams' matchup against the Seahawks isn't ideal, though.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams to see bulk of work

Wed, 28 Aug 2013 07:10:36 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams is expected to receive the bulk of the work among the running backs to start the season.

Fantasy Tip: It's fair to wonder what the 30-year-old has left in the tank. He's an adequate RB3, but he really needs to produce to avoid the aging running back purgatory on the market.

Panthers | Sources: Jonathan Stewart to start on PUP

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 10:22:03 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) will start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: J-Stew would miss the first six games but still could fly as a bench grab in the middle to late rounds. DeAngelo Williams becomes a legitimate RB3 with some weeks as an RB2. Rookie speedster Kenjon Barner (foot) also gains cred as an RB5 speculation, but we'll have to see how he responds to his recent foot injury. Mike Tolbert could siphon a touchdown or two in the time J-Stew is out and could be a last-ditch pick, as well. Remember, though: The entire backfield's TD upside is restricted by Cam Newton's feet.
