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 | 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.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart unlikely to play in Week 1

Thu, 22 Aug 2013 14:36:14 -0700

The Carolina Panthers are optimistic that RB Jonathan Stewart (ankles) will be ready for the regular season opener, but ESPN's Adam Schefter believes it's probably not realistic.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers could place Stewart on the PUP and risk losing him for at least six weeks of the season. DeAngelo Williams will be the starting running back for any games Stewart misses, followed by rookie Kenjon Barner. It isn't wise to draft J-Stew until we have a clearer picture of whether he'll be ready for Week 1.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart could go on PUP list

Tue, 20 Aug 2013 16:02:36 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankles) will not play in the team's third preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22, and the club isn't ruling out placing him on the Physically Unable to Perform list, which would cause him to miss at least the first six weeks of the season. "At this point anything is an option," head coach Ron Rivera said. "What you're hoping is you can get him on the football field and we'll see once the doctor gets a chance to look at him." Stewart has yet to practice with the team and will meet with doctors soon. RB DeAngelo Williams has been taking reps with the first-team offense, and RB Kenjon Barner has seen increased opportunity.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, this makes Stewart a very risky running back selection. Williams' stock is rising as a result, but neither is attractive as anything more than a very weak RB3. With Mike Tolbert and Barner in the picture, too, this may be one of those running back situations to steer clear of on draft day.

Panthers | Kenjon Barner impressing

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 06:43:27 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Kenjon Barner has impressed his teammates in camp and has the ability to hide behind blockers while waiting for a crease to open. He has been utilized in the passing game as well. He hasn't spent a lot of time with the returners, which is a sign they plan to use him in the offense.

Panthers | Kenjon Barner looks explosive

Thu, 13 Jun 2013 10:23:10 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Kenjon Barner has looked explosive and fast in practice. They might figure out how to get the rookie into the backfield mix.

Fantasy Tip: This would especially be true if Jonathan Stewart's ankles keep him out for much of their summer workouts. Barner is nothing more than a last-round flyer in deeper redraft leagues, but he's someone to watch over the long term.

Lions | Looking for RB

Fri, 25 Jan 2013 11:35:29 -0800

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said the team is searching for a running back in this year's draft. "We need that shifty back that can come in and be that change-of-pace guy who can catch passes out of the backfield, a guy that can run routes and get one-on-one with a linebacker," Mayhew said. "That's what Jahvid gave us, a guy with some juice, some elusiveness." Oregon RB Kenjon Barner, Stanford RB Stepfan Taylor and Florida RB Mike Gillislee were the most impressive at the Senior Bowl this week, and Taylor is the most complete back of the three.
