Fantasy Tip: Stewart has received at least 15 carries in five of his last seven games and probably will continue to see plenty of carries in the offense. He has scored three touchdowns in his last three games and can be a flex option for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: J-Stew has a midrange matchup against the San Diego Chargers this week. He was quiet last week in a blowout, but he scored three times in the two previous games. He's a low-end RB2 this week.

Fantasy Tip: It was simply a day of rest for Stewart. He'll be fine for Week 14 in a plus matchup against the San Diego Chargers. San Diego has given up 16 total touchdowns to running backs this year, tied for second most in the NFL behind the San Francisco 49ers.

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin has scored only once since Week 4 and failed to catch more than three passes in any of his last three games. When asked about the team's top receiver Monday, Dec. 5, head coach Ron Rivera said, "Maybe we did get him out there too soon, too much (after last year's torn ACL)."
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what exactly led to this moment of public reflection from Rivera, but Benjamin has actually been more efficient with his targets this year than he was as a rookie. Greg Olsen's production has also fallen off a cliff recently as well, suggesting the injuries on the offensive line - which may or may not be having a profound effect on Cam Newton - and the defensive struggles may be conspiring to keep the offense from realizing its full potential. Benjamin is a WR3 until further notice.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson tossed an interception on the first play from scrimmage, so his time under center did not last long.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton did not start in the Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks due to disciplinary reasons, according to reports. The decision was head coach Ron Rivera's, and Newton is healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Derek Anderson started and promptly through an interception on the first play from scrimmage, so it's unlikely the punishment will last very long.

Carolina Panthers DE Mario Addison (foot), RB Cameron Artis-Payne, S Kurt Coleman (concussion), LB Luke Kuechly (concussion), TE Chris Manhertz, DT Paul Soliai and OT Daryl Williams (ankle) are inactive for Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Fri, 02 Dec 2016 18:30:24 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Stewart should be rested for the Week 13 matchup against Seattle. The Seahawks have a solid run defense, but Stewart's heavy workload should still allow him to produce low-end RB2 numbers.

Fantasy Tip: Ginn has shown signs of life the last two weeks. He is worth adding if available, but he is a bit of a reach as fantasy play in Week 13 against the tough Seattle secondary.
