Jordan Todman RB CAR 1 day ago

The Panthers have signed Todman to a one-year deal.

Todman, who carried 32 times for 186 yards with a TD, to go along with 25 catches for 198 yards and a receiving score in 16 games for the Jags in 2014, will provide the Panthers with added running back depth behind starter Jonathan Stewart, while also giving the team another option in the return game.

Todman did not receive a restricted free agent tender from the Jaguars, ESPN's Michael DiRocco reports.

Todman will now become an unrestricted free agent, and while he shouldn't have much trouble finding a team that will let him compete for a roster spot, anything more than that might be pushing it. He's a home-run threat with decent receiving skills and plenty of experience returning kickoffs, so it won't be surprising if he survives final cuts, where he may ultimately land. Todman was unable to take advantage of a shaky running back situation in Jacksonville the past few years, but he might actually have some use to a team with a competent offensive line. There is some chance he'll simply re-sign with the Jaguars on a near-minimum contract.

Todman had seven carries for 52 rushing yards and five catches on six targets for 46 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Texans.

Todman finishes the season after finding the end zone in back-to-back games while leading the team in rushing yards in both contests. That being said, Denard Robinson is the likely starter next season, with Toby Gerhart a possible backup if the Jags decide to keep him around. Todman has shown signs of potential this season, but he's got a fairly limited ceiling, which is why he isn't likely to win the starting job in training camp next season.

Todman had five carries for 71 yards and a touchdown, adding two catches for five yards on three targets, in Thursday's 21-13 win over the Titans

Working behind Toby Gerhart, Todman played the vast majority of his snaps on passing downs for the first three quarters, before exploding in the final frame. He didn't get his first carry until there were less than 10 minutes remaining, but he promptly took it for a 62-yard touchdown. He then added four more carries in the final four minutes, after Gerhart exited early because of a rib contusion. While the injury doesn't sound especially serious, Todman is seemingly next in line to start, if Gerhart can't face the Texans in Week 17.

Todman had three carries for seven yards and one catch for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to Baltimore.

Even with Denard Robinson (foot) sidelined, Todman was unable to carve out a significant role and appears to be solidly behind Toby Gerhart and Storm Johnson in the pecking order heading into Week 16.

Todman may have a chance to see a slightly larger workload over the final three games of the season, the Florida Times-Union reports.

With Denard Robinson (foot) declared out for the season, offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said the Jaguars will split the rushing workload among their three remaining backs. "It will be an opportunity for Storm to get back in the mix," Fisch said. "Toby's healthy and he'll continue to be in the mix, and Todman will be more into the mix than he's been this part of the season so far." While Todman's value receives a moderate boost, he's likely the third option behind Gerhart and Johnson and has not carried the ball more than three times in a game this season. From a fantasy perspective, it's best to avoid the Jacksonville rushing situation overall, if possible.

Todman (quad) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

With Denard Robinson running strong and Toby Gerhart available for short-yardage duty, there is not much work left for Todman, who has just six carries in his last four games. He'll have to fight for scraps again Sunday.

Todman did not practice Friday due to a quad injury but is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Though Todman sat out Friday after practicing fully the previous two days, his probable designation suggests he was held out for precautionary reasons. As long as he suits up Sunday, Todman figures to play a bit role behind fellow running backs Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart.

Todman carried once for nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Todman is firmly entrenched as the third back behind Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart, and his largest impact came on special teams Sunday. He returned six kickoffs for 173 yards, including a 39-yards return in the third quarter.

Todman carried twice for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

Todman served as the third back behind Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart but was not featured in the offense. Going forward, he'll likely maintain a similar role, and his fantasy value is extremely minimal unless he moves up the depth chart.
