Panthers | CAR to use RB committee

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 07:32:56 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker, RB Cameron Artis-Payne and FB Mike Tolbert will split carries by committee with RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) out, according to offensive coordinator Mike Shula.

Fantasy Tip: Whittaker and Payne could see the lion's share if one of them is hot. Both are flex options in fantasy. Tolbert figures to see short-yardage carries and doesn't have much fantasy luster except in TD-only leagues.

Panthers | Fozzy Whittaker the main back

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 13:41:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker was in on 49 offensive snaps in Week 2 in light of RB Jonathan Stewart's (hamstring) early exit. RB Cameron Artis-Payne did not receive any snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Whittaker will be the Panthers' go-to running back assuming Stewart is out for Week 3. Whittaker ran for 100 yards and caught three passes for 31 yards last week. He and the Panthers face stiff competition in the Minnesota Vikings, though. View Whittaker as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 with added value in PPR leagues if Stewart can't play.

Panthers | Fozzy Whittaker fills in admirably

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 18:11:32 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (concussion) left the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers briefly to be evaluated for concussion. He passed tests and finished with 16 carries for 100 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Whittaker filled in well for the injured Jonathan Stewart, who was forced out in the first half. Ron Rivera expressed concern about Stewart's injury, so Whittaker might be forced to carry the mail in Week 3. If so he is a decent low-end RB2 in most fantasy formats.

Panthers | Fozzy Whittaker briefly leaves game

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 11:26:48 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (head) briefly left the team's Week 2 game and was evaluated for a concussion but was able to return to the game.

Fantasy Tip: Whittaker is seeing more playing time with Jonathan Stewart out with an ankle injury. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues next week if Stewart is not able to play.

Panthers | Three Panthers RBs questionable

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 10:10:06 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and RB Mike Tolbert (knee) and RB Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) are listed as questionable for the Super Bowl. Stewart and Tolbert didn't practice Friday, Jan. 29, while Whittaker was limited.

Fantasy Tip: All three should be good to go, and Stewart will lead the way. He'll have a pivotal role against the Denver Broncos to keep their devastating pass rush honest.

Panthers | Two Panthers backs ease in

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 08:33:31 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (rest) and RB Mike Tolbert (knee) did little-to-no work at practice Friday, Jan. 29, but RB Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) returned to practice.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart figures to see a prominent role in the Super Bowl, and the team is being cautious with him with the game more than a week away.

Panthers | Three Panthers RBs sit out again

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 09:15:22 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (rest), RB Mike Tolbert (knee) and RB Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) were out of practice again Thursday, Jan. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart had a solid showing with 83 yards rushing in the NFC Championship, and they'll need him to open up other areas of their offense in the Super Bowl.

Panthers | Three Panthers RBs not practicing

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 09:22:14 -0800

Carolina Panthers RBs Jonathan Stewart (rest), Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) and Mike Tolbert (knee) are not practicing Wednesday, Jan. 27, and RBs Cameron Artis-Payne and Brandon Wegher are seeing most of the work.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers have plenty of time to practice, so they're just resting some of their banged up players early in the week. J-Stew has had a very productive year despite missing time at the end of the regular season with an injury. He had two touchdowns and over 100 yards in the divisional round and 83 yards last week against the Arizona Cardinals. The Denver Broncos are a tough squad to run against, but the presence of Cam Newton could open some big holes for Stewart to exploit.

Panthers | Fozzy Whittaker tweaked his ankle

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 16:44:57 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) tweaked his sprained ankle in the NFC Championship game, but he is expected to be fine for Super Bowl 50, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Whittaker played sparingly down the stretch of the end of the regular season because of a high ankle sprain. He had just two rushes of minus-two yards in the NFC title game and probably won't see much work against the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Panthers | Fozzy Whittaker likely to go

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 08:59:50 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) is probable for the NFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 24, against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Whittaker ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) may not have a large enough role to be a huge factor on FantasyScore. However, with Jonathan Stewart's (ankle) durability a concern, he's a shot in the dark to fill out your roster.
