Summary

Jonathan Stewart made it most of the way through the 2016 season, managing to appear in 13 games and generating 242/989/6 rushing while seeing 21 targets for 16/99/1 receiving during that span (he sat out weeks 15-17 after the Panthers had locked up the first seed in the NFC). Stewart finished 2015 as the 16th-ranked fantasy running back in the NFL, his best finish since 2009, and capped his season with a TD during the Super Bowl 50 loss to Denver. One has to go back to 2011 to find a full 16-game season contributed by Stewart - he has appeared in 13 games per season over the past two years, but fantasy owners investing in Stewart need to have a good alternative on the roster as he is far from a lock to appear in all the games during 2016. Cam Newton ran in 10 TDs last year and averages 8.6 rushing TDs per season, which limits the number of rushing scores fantasy owners can expect from the Panthers' running backs - last season Carolina scored 19 rushing TDs (first in the NFL) of which Stewart claimed six (31.5%). In short, the fantasy ceiling of Stewart (especially in the rushing TDs department) is dragged down by virtue of being a teammate of Newton. (May 19)
