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.

Fantasy Tip: Newton ($6,700) still isn't the best play on FantasyScore this week. The Browns allow 13.41 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks -- third fewest in the league.

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) has yet to officially be cleared to play in Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns, but head coach Ron Rivera is "very comfortable and confident" that Newton will start. "Right now, everything is pointing in the right direction," Rivera said. "The reason I haven't said anything (definitive) is because of that one big thing, waiting for doctors to tell me they feel good about it." Newton hasn't shown any signs of pain in practice this week.
Fantasy Tip: Newton ($6,700) just needs to be officially cleared by doctors, which is a certainty at this point. Feel free to start him, but his inconsistency this year should make you hesitant to put him in your FantasyScore lineup, especially after missing last week.

Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis (knee) and S Roman Harper (thigh) both fully practiced and are probable for Week 16. CB Carrington Byndom (hamstring) did not practice and is questionable. LB A.J. Klein (ankle) and OG Amini Silatolu (knee) both were limited in practice and are questionable.
