Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart will ideally be limited to 15 carries a game, according to head coach Ron Rivera. The team will look to draft a running back in the 2015 NFL Draft that will likely take eight to 10 carries per game.
Fantasy Tip: J-Stew has a lengthy injury history, and while it still seems like they plan to use him as their RB1, he really has very little upside in this arrangement. Draft him as an RB3, but look to handcuff him to his No. 2 as well.

Carolina Panthers WR Stephen Hill may be an option in 2015, and head coach Ron Rivera said he's excited to see Hill in camp. "With his size (6-4, 215) and speed and his ability to get vertical, if he can assimilate to what we do - and I think he will," Rivera said. "He seems to be a very smart man - he might be a guy that has an opportunity to contribute for us."
Fantasy Tip: Hill has a ways to go before we find much reason for excitement, but he's a player to keep an eye on for your final roster spot in traditional leagues.

Former Nebraska LB Randy Gregory visited the Carolina Panthers last week. Gregory reportedly had an impressive workout Wednesday, March 25, and is unlikely to last late into the first round when the Panthers are on the clock.

Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly will have his fifth-year option picked up by the team, according to general manager Dave Gettleman. Kuechly is starting the final year of his rookie deal that gives him a 2015 salary cap number of around $4 million. Kuechly will be tied to the team through the 2016 season, and his salary next year will be the average of the 10 highest-paid middle linebackers, which currently is around $7.5 million. Carolina has until May to exercise the option, and it doesn't preclude them from working out a long-term deal with Kuechly.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings was the victim of a salary squeeze as the Vikings believed they could not pay two receivers a high price. This could be a good landing spot for Jennings, who could be drafted as a WR3 in most fantasy leagues.
