From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 27): Stewart looked as good as he has in years against Seattle, but DeAngelo Williams is due back this week, and the Panthers running game is still very limited when it comes to fantasy upside. He's just bye/injury/emergency material.

Week 9: vs New Orleans Saints

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. This should be a fun NFC South shootout between two rivals, though neither team has been at their best for the majority of the season. The Panthers' running back stable is (finally) getting healthier - Jonathan Stewart has managed to move the ball between the 20's over the last two weeks since returning from injury (30/134/0 rushing with 4/27/0 receiving), while DeAngelo Williams was seen running sprints prior to last week's loss to Seattle, and is expected to be back in action for this divisional contest. The Panthers should have their top two backs to throw at the Saints on Thursday Night Football. Speaking of the Saints, they sport the league's 10th-ranked rush D averaging 101.1 yards allowed per game, with seven rushing scores given out over seven games played. Detroit was held to 24/59/1 rushing two weeks ago, while Green Bay finished with 19/89/1 rushing to their credit last Sunday. Carolina's running backs may be back, but they come into a fairly tough matchup this weekend. Advantage, New Orleans.

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.

2014 Week 8 vs SEA (16 / 79 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)

Producing what was perhaps one of the best performances of his career against a salty defense, Jonathan Stewart looked back to his old self against Seattle. Showing an excellent blend of patience, burst and power that used to be his trademark pre-injury, Stewart bulled between the tackles and made Seahawks miss in the hole with slick and quick moves. Utilised in the screen game a staple of the Carolina offense Stewart was equally effective, although a swarming Seattle defense managed to defeat blocks and gave him very little room with which to operate. There was a big emphasis entering the game to establish the run, and Stewart responded in just the right way. Even behind a patchwork offensive line, Stewart showed just how effective a force he can be when healthy.
