Jonathan Stewart RB CAR 14 Days4 Comments

Stewart had 20 carries for 155 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Saints.

Stewart got the start in place of the injured DeAngelo Williams (finger), and he absolutely dominated the Saints, posting his highest rushing total since he gained 206 yards on 28 carries against the Giants in Week 15 of the 2009 season. After back to back solid performances (he had 12 carries for 85 yards in Week 13 against the Vikings), Stewart should get a bulk of the backfield touches in Week 15 against a Bucs defense allowing 116.0 rushing yards per game this season.

With DeAngelo Williams (finger) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Stewart is expected to start, the Charlotte Observer's Joe Person reports.

Fozzy Whittaker will get some opportunities as well, but Stewart is expected to carry the load. Although Carolina's offensive line isn't anything special, Stewart may still find success against the Saints. New Orleans ranks 23rd in the league in rushing yards allowed, and its 13 rushing touchdowns surrendered ranks next-to-last.

Stewart had a team-high 12 carries for 85 rushing yards and two catches on two targets for 25 receiving yards Sunday against the Vikings.

A very solid performance for Stewart, who grossly outplayed fellow running back DeAngelo Williams, who finished with only seven carries for 21 rushing yards while failing to catch a pass. Williams suffered an arm injury in Sunday's game, and if he has to miss any time, Stewart will get a majority of the carries in Week 14 against the Saints, a team allowing the 10th-most rushing yards per game this season.

Stewart (ankle) had seven carries for 24 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Falcons.

Stewart didn't do much outside of a 13-yard run at one point, and wasn't afforded many opportunities, as the Panthers trailed the entire second half. Meanwhile, DeAngelo Williams had 10 carries for 41 yards, while catching his lone target for negative yardage. Stewart is on bye next week, so he won't be available until Week 13, when he'll face an average Vikings' rush defense.

Stewart (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Stewart is averaging a respectable 4.4 yards per carry in four games since returning from injury, but the Panthers plan to start DeAngelo Williams at running back Sunday. The two will likely split carries fairly evenly as they did last week, but the timeshare situation makes it difficult to rely on Stewart as much more than an RB3/flex.

Stewart (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

DeAngelo Williams is expected to start for Carolina, leaving Stewart to play in an off-the-bench role, though the carry split should be fairly even. He has run surprisingly well in the last four weeks, totaling 211 yards and a touchdown on 48 carries, but his lack of a steady workload makes him a hit-or-miss fantasy gamble.

Stewart (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday.

During Monday's blowout loss at Philadelphia, Stewart and DeAngelo Wiliams handled most of the touches among Panthers backs prior to garbage time, but Williams joined Stewart on Wednesday's injury report, missing practice altogether due to a foot concern. Once again, Carolina's running back situation is in flux, as Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya exist as the sole fully healthy options at the moment. Expect further clarity regarding Stewart and his cohorts as the weekend approaches.

Stewart had 11 carries for 36 yards and a touchdown, with four receptions for 23 yards in Monday's 45-21 loss to the Eagles.

DeAngelo Williams had 13 carries for 31 yards, with another 17 yards on three receptions. Fozzy Whittaker got a bunch of work in garbage time but was otherwise not a part of the offense. Stewart got both goal-line carries, and he once again looked surprisingly spry, showing that he's a tough man to tackle on the rare occasions when he's fully healthy. In any case, it's hard to get excited about either runner in this split backfield, as the Panthers have a flailing offense that's held back by one of the NFL's worst lines.

Stewart gained 46 yards on eight carries in Thursday's 28-10 loss to the Saints.

One week after rushing for a season-high 79 yards on a season-high 16 carries against the Seahawks, Stewart had his work limited by the return of DeAngelo Williams (ankle), who managed just 20 yards on eight carries and 30 yards on one reception. Stewart ran hard and broke some tackles, but he'll likely continue to split the work with Williams, at least for as long as both backs stay healthy. None of Carolina's running backs has done much as a receiver this season, but Stewart typically handles the passing-down work over Williams.
