Summary

Jonathan Stewart missed 10 games during 2013 due to ankle woes and then a torn MCL in his knee (week 14), but he bounced back to fantasy prominence for Carolina during 2014, when he led the team in rushing (175/809/3 rushing, a 4.6 yards-per-carry average) and receiving by a running back (31 for 25/181/1 receiving), just missing out on 1,000 yards combined. His long-time committee partner, DeAngelo Williams is (finally) out of the picture in Carolina, and the 28-year-old Stewart looks set to be the full-time, bell-cow back for the Panthers during 2014. We'll see if his hard luck with injuries remains at bay during 2015 (he played in 13 games for the Panthers last season). Stewart definitely showed he has lots of gas left in his tank with his 4.6 yards-per-carry average last season. The big issue with Stewart (besides his injury history) for fantasy owners is that Cam Newton routinely scores mid-single-digit rushing TDs for the Panthers, limiting the number of rushing scores we can reasonably expect to see from Stewart during 2015. Featured running backs are fairly rare in the NFL, though, which helps keep Stewart in consideration for a #2 fantasy running back role on your team (he's #19 on the Footballguys.com ranking boards for running backs as of mid-May).

Panthers | Jonathan Stewart too frail for big role? (Fri Jul 17, 09:54 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart led the team with 175 carries and 200 touches last year, but he missed three games and has missed a combined 20 games since 2012.

Our View: This is the same old story with Stewart. The veteran back missed 10 games during 2013 due to ankle woes and then a torn MCL in his knee (week 14), but he bounced back last year...even though he missed a few games. We DeAngelo Williams now in Pittsburgh, Stewart is in line for the featured role all to himself. If healthy, Stewart is a talented RB2 with RB1 upside for fantasy owners.
