Week 7: at Green Bay Packers

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Cam Newton (17/107/1 rushing) had as many rushes last weekend as the backup running backs managed (Fozzy Whittaker posted 9/25/1 rushing with 2/27/0 receiving, while Darrin Reaves managed 8/15/0 rushing and 1/4/0 receiving) as the Panthers battled the Bengals to a 37-37 tie. The injury news at midweek indicates that Jonathan Stewart is the 'starter' closest to returning for the Panthers, but he is no sure bet to play a full game in his first week back in game action. Frankly, unless you have Cam Newton on your roster, we'd advise you to avoid this backfield if you can do so. The Packers' rush D is ranked 32nd in the NFL averaging 154.5 yards allowed per game, with seven rushing scores handed out to date. Miami managed 23/112/1 rushing vs. Green Bay last week; Minnesota had 25/111/1 two games back. As you can see, the Packers' defensive front is getting a little stouter as the weeks go by, but they are far from solid even so. Two struggling units face off in this matchup - the injury situation remains ugly for the Panthers but this is a neutral matchup for Newton and his side-kicks Stewart, Whittaker and Reaves.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs CHI (8 / 24 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Picked up off the street in midweek, Chris Ogbonnaya capitalized on a goal line opportunity to reach pay dirt, lowering his pads and driving the pile behind a good push from the line. Like Reaves, however, Ogbonnaya found little running room and was stymied by the Bears up front on his handful of touches.
