Quick fantasy outlook: 2012 was not an auspicious year for Carolina's tandem of DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart - quarterback Cam Newton led the team in rushing with 127/741/8 on the ground, compared to 173/737/5 rushing and 20 targets for 13/187/2 receiving for Williams, the team's number two rusher last year. Jonathan Stewart (nine games played with 93/336/1 rushing and 17/157/1 receiving last season) struggled with injuries (again), sustaining a left ankle sprain that sidelined him from week 13 forwards. Stewart had corrective surgery on the ankle January 12, 2013. The team must have liked the outcome of the surgery as they renegotiated Stewart's contract in February, in which course Stewart received a $2.5 million signing bonus and got his 2014 $1.5 million base salary fully guaranteed. However, as of mid-June Stewart has missed OTAs allowing Williams a lot of first-team reps. Williams restructured his contract in mid-May as well, making his contract cap-friendly and likely keeping him in the mix at running back during 2013. Williams has logged two 1,000+ yards-rushing seasons during his seven years in the league, with his best effort coming during 2008 (274/1,518/18 with 22/121/2 receiving), while Stewart has logged one 1,000+ yards-rushing effort while in Carolina (2009, with 221/1,133/10 rushing and 18/139/1 receiving). Neither player has been particularly effective for fantasy owners over the last three years - their extensive time sharing and the arrival of Cam Newton has combined to limit each back's production.
