Week 13: at Minnesota Vikings

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. 3-7-1 Carolina faces off against 4-7 Minnesota in this one, but incredible as it sounds, the Panthers are still in the NFC South race so for Carolina this game is a must-win situation. The Vikings are in spoiler mode with Green Bay far out of reach (as is a wild card playoff berth in the NFC). Carolina comes into this one off a late Week 12 bye, so hopefully DeAngelo Williams (56/198/0 rushing with 5/44/0 receiving so far this year) and Jonathan Stewart (84/323/2 rushing with 18/123/0 receiving) will be ready to take the field for the Panthers. Neither is a compelling fantasy option with a shaky offensive line and a work-sharing arrangement (Carolina ranks 25th in the NFL averaging 96.4 yards rushing per game as a team, with six rushing scores recorded over 11 games played to date). The Vikings' rush D is ranked 21st in the NFL averaging 118.9 yards allowed per game, with nine rushing scores given out to date. They coughed up 32/155/1 to the Packers last week, and 31/138/0 to the Bears two games back - this unit is regressing during November. Neither of these sub-par teams has an edge over the other.

Panthers | Wednesday practice report (Wed Nov 26, 06:01 PM) - Carolina Panthers WR Corey Brown (illness) and DT Star Lotulelei (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 26. CB Bene Benwikere (ankle), OG Andrew Norwell (thigh), OG Amini Silatolu (knee) and RB Mike Tolbert (knee) practiced in full.

Panthers | Activate Mike Tolbert (Tue Nov 18, 02:07 PM) - The Carolina Panthers activated FB Mike Tolbert (leg) from the short-term Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Our View: This is good news for the Panthers, but it might be bad news for fantasy owners. Tolbert is a touchdown vulture who could steal some goal line looks from guys like Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams.

Panthers | Mike Tolbert should be ready (Mon Nov 17, 01:27 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Mike Tolbert (leg) should be ready to play in the team's Week 13 game, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera said Tolbert was healthy enough to play in Week 11, but he is still on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Our View: Tolbert could help spring open holes for the running backs behind him. While this is good for fantasy owners of Jonathan Stewart or DeAngelo Williams, it's also bad because Tolbert is a touchdown vulture who will steal carries away near the goal line.
