Summary

As he did in 2015 (242/989/6 rushing while seeing 21 targets for 16/99/1 receiving), Jonathan Stewart managed to appear in 13 games last season for the Panthers, piling up 218/824/9 rushing with 21 targets for 8/60/0 receiving to his credit - he was back below four yards a carry last season, averaging 3.8 yards per tote. Now 30 years old, Stewart has played nine seasons in the league, and the Panthers made a move in the first round of the 2017 draft to get younger at this key position. Rookie Christian McCaffrey figures to be the new starting running back, and he has three-down skills (having caught 99 receptions while at Stanford). Stewart likely has a role as the short yardage/goal line/change-of-pace back for the Panthers this year as he mentors the heir apparent, McCaffrey. Footballguys.com's panel of fantasy football projectors think he'll fall somewhere in the range of 575-795 yards rushing with 5-6 rushing scores, and perhaps 80-100 yards receiving in his new #2 role during 2017.
