Carolina Panthers news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:20:25 -0800
Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart will be the team's starting running back in Week 17 against the Atlanta Falcons despite RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) being listed as probable for the game. Stewart has ran for 437 yards in the last four games with Williams out, which is more than any other running back in the NFL in that span. "I'm not going to sit here and divulge what my plan is with my players," head coach Ron Rivera said. "I don't want to get up here and tell you exactly what we're going to do with our players. Why do I want to give the opponent any insight into what we're going to do?" There are no guarantees that Williams will play, since there are concerns about his ability to block with his hand injury.
Fantasy Tip: Stewart should be a solid play at FantasyScore against the Falcons, even if Williams is active in the game. The Falcons have routinely been beaten up by opposing rushers all year. Ignore Williams in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Williams looks like he is good to go for Week 17, but he should not be counted on since Jonathan Stewart has been playing well and will likely get a lot of the work.

Fantasy Tip: Williams appears to be on track to play in Week 17, but likely will not have a big role since Jonathan Stewart has been playing well in his absence. Williams ($5,555) probably should be avoided by fantasy owners this week.

Carolina Panthers RBs Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams still don't know who will start this week. Head coach Ron Rivera said he's reluctant to name a starter at this point and will cross that bridge when he gets to it.
Fantasy Tip: Logic says that Stewart ($5,555) will maintain his starter status considering his recent success. Whoever does start will have a terrific matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, who have allowed the most fantasy points to running backs this year.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($5,555) could very well return this weekend to face the Atlanta Falcons in a winner-take-all contest for the NFC South division. A Williams return would lower the FantasyScore value of Jonathan Stewart ($5,555), who has run well in recent weeks as the main back. Stewart is clearly the better option here, but temper your expectations if Williams returns.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($5,555) has run really well in recent weeks, and he has a juicy matchup against the Atlanta Falcons in the season finale. However, keep tabs on the status of DeAngelo Williams (hand), as his return could cut into the workload of J-Stew.

Fantasy Tip: Newton should be able to start this week after missing last week because of his back injury. Newton is a risky option this week at $6,700 on FantasyScore because of his injury and he is facing a tough Cleveland Browns defense.

Fantasy Tip: Jonathan Stewart ($5,000; 10.0% of your cap) is a meager flex option on FantasyScore today.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin ($7,100; 14.2% of your cap) is a decent gamble as a low-end WR1 on FantasyScore. The absence of the stud corner gives Benjamin even more of a promising outlook.
