From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Stewart is the only game in town when it comes to the Carolina backfield, but DeAngelo Williams could practice this week, and the Panthers running game is inspiring no confidence. He has desperation play value and is worth a look in deeper leagues, but that's about it.

Week 8: vs Seattle Seahawks

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Carolina's offense went from finding a rhythm vs. Cincinnati (during a 37-37 OT tie game) to getting blown out (10-38 scored by the first team offense before the second-string tacked on a late TD to make it 17-38 in the crushing loss to Green Bay last week). Without Cam Newton running wild as he did against Cincinnati (17/107/1 two weeks ago, but just 7/41/0 rushing at Green Bay last week), Johnathan Stewart eked out 13/50/0 rushing (3.8 yards per carry) and 1/12/0 receiving, while Chris Ogbonnaya posted 5/17/0 rushing in a change-of-pace capacity. Aside from Newton occasional explosion there isn't much fantasy juice in this phase of the game for owners. The Seahawks defense has lost some of their Super Bowl luster as the team sits at 3-3 through six games played - Dallas hung 37/162/1 rushing on this club two games back and St. Louis posted 27/102/1 in their upset victory over the Seahawks last week. It's fair to say that the defensive front is in a funk as of late October. This looks like a neutral matchup between units that are currently struggling.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 7 vs GB (14 / 55 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

With the offensive line unable to provide much push and with the offense unable to sustain drives, Jonathan Stewart's afternoon was not a pleasant one. Time and again he would be met by Packers defenders, who played disciplined football and kept everything funneled to the inside. Stewart, to his credit, produced a couple of ;bull in a china shop' style runs in the fourth quarter, but was a non-factor prior to that. The game script meant the Panthers had to get away from their preferred run-first strategy and Stewart bore the brunt. Although Stewart displayed good second effort on a handful of carries, he has lost the "it" factor to defeat defenses with power.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart to start (Fri Oct 17, 05:57 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) will start in the team's Week 7 game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart probable (Fri Oct 17, 02:08 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as probable for Week 7.

Our View: Consider Stewart a "what the heck flex" as the Panthers running game has been stuck in neutral. He could have a solid stat line on sheer volume against the porous Packers run defense, although Cam Newton is more likely to score on the ground at the goal line now that he's healthy.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart a full participant again (Thu Oct 16, 04:25 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.

Our View: Stewart should get the start and most of the carries, but isn't more than a an RB3/flex guy. Buyer beware, he wasn't looking good in the 15 seconds (give or take a few) he was healthy earlier this year.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart expects to start (Thu Oct 16, 11:48 AM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) said he will start in the team's Week 7 game.

Our View: He'll start but remains no more than a RB3, though if Darrin Reaves is out completely, he might fill in as a low-end RB2.

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart expects to play (Wed Oct 15, 03:46 PM) - Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) said he is feeling better and expects to play in Week 7.

Our View: Awesome....most fantasy owners should be avoiding this backfield. If you're desperate, then you can put in Stewart as a 'what the heck' flex.
