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.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs PHI (13 / 31 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)

Williams, like the rest of the offense, had a night to forget. Williams was only given 13 carries as he split the backfield with a more effective Jonathan Stewart, and he fumbled on a routine run up the middle. Williams doesn't appear to be the same explosive athlete that he once was, and that coupled with running behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league makes him almost unable to start in fantasy.

2014 Week 11 vs ATL (10 / 41 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -3 / 0 rec)

Like backfield mate Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams couldn't get into a rhythm in this contest with the Panthers offense struggling to stay on the field. The Panthers ran the football with good success early and it seemed to be a formula they would stick to for the remainder of the game. However, poor third-down execution scuppered this plan. Despite looking hesitant early on and not hitting the hole with any authority or conviction, Williams rebounded and showed good wiggle and bounce to find what was there against Atlanta's front seven.
