Panthers | Two Panthers RBs sitting out

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 08:58:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Darrin Reaves (calf) and RB Fozzy Whittaker (thigh) are not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Reaves or Whittaker will be able to play in Week 7. Both running backs will lose value since Jonathan Stewart likely will receive a majority of the work, so owners should avoid using either player.

Panthers | Fozzy Whittaker expects to play

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 11:54:36 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (leg) said he was held out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 15, but expects to play in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Whittaker's role in the offense probably will change if Jonathan Stewart is able to return. Owners should consider keeping Whittaker on the bench until his role is defined.

Panthers | Fozzy Whittaker injures leg

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 12:48:53 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (leg) left the team's Week 6 game early because of a leg injury and is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Whittaker was sharing work with Darrin Reaves during the game and was more productive than Reeves. Jonathan Stewart may be close to returning, so Whittaker's fantasy value could go down in the near future.

Panthers | Fozzy Whittaker could be factor

Sun, 05 Oct 2014 09:26:44 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Darrin Reaves is starting Sunday, Oct. 5, but RB Fozzy Whittaker could be utilized more in Week 5, in the opinion of The Associated Press' Steve Reed.

Fantasy Tip: This is a bit of a curveball, and Reaves' outlook today is tainted a bit. The team made no bones about anointing Reaves as the starter when RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) went down. Both backs are $3,000 (6% of your cap) on FantasyScore today. However, neither may be worth the flier due to the uncertainty.

Panthers | Panthers to use hot hand at RB

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 11:08:50 -0700

Carolina Panthers RBs Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya will all receive carries early in the game Week 5, and the team will continue to use whichever running back is producing, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: This is not an ideal situation for fantasy owners since it is not known how the carries will be spread out during the game. Reaves and Whittaker cost $3,000 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider avoiding the Panthers' running back situation since there is no specific role for any of the running backs.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart unlikely to play

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 12:43:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) likely will not be able to play in Week 5, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera said he is comfortable with RBs Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya.

Fantasy Tip: Reaves, Whittaker and Ogbonnaya could all receive work in Week 5, but Reaves is expected to receive the start. Reaves costs $3,000 on FantasyScore and could be a cheap flex option that can bring a profit if he gets most of the work. Whittaker also costs $3,000 but may not have a big enough role to be a factor in fantasy 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 | Fozzy Whittaker in good shape

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 19:22:12 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker appears to be in good shape for winning a spot on the 53-man roster after the team traded RB Kenjon Barner to the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Whittaker has had a strong preseason, particularly in the second game against Kansas City. However, unless DeAngelo Williams or Jonathan Stewart go down with a long-term injury, Whittaker's fantasy value is rather limited.

Browns | Willis McGahee ruled out

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 12:05:04 -0800

Cleveland Browns RB Willis McGahee (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15 against the Chicago Bears. RB Chris Ogbonnaya will receive the majority of the workload in his place, with RB Fozzy Whittaker also seeing some work in relief.

Fantasy Tip: Ogbonnaya isn't a bad flex option, since he's going up against one of the worst rush defenses in the league, even though they may be improving a bit.

Chargers | Foswhitt Whittaker turning heads

Sun, 25 Aug 2013 19:33:46 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Foswhitt Whittaker has turned heads in training camp and the preseason. He had six carries for 25 yards and a touchdown in the third preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Aug. 24, and he added two receptions for 29 yards. "He's been very patient and the offensive line has done a very good job with him. He takes what the defense gives him. When I say that I mean he takes one cut or sets up blocks a certain way. He has done a nice job making the most out of his opportunities," head coach Mike McCoy said Sunday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Whittaker has Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown ahead of him on the depth chart, so even if he finds his way onto the 53-man roster, Whittaker has a long way to go before he has fantasy appeal.
