RB Jeremy Stewart - Free Agent
|6-1, 218||Born: 2-17-1989||College: Stanford||Drafted: ---|
2013 Week 4 vs WAS (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Stewart came in to spell Rashad Jennings occasionally with both McFadden and Jennings out. His only catch was a five yard grab in the flats and he was cut down immediately after he caught the ball.
2013 Week 9 vs PHI (2 / 2 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Stewart saw two carries in the game and both of them came in the final two minutes from inside the five yard line. He was stuffed on his first attempt but did punch it in for a two yard score. The touchdown came with 52 seconds left to cut the Eagles lead to 29.
2012 Week 10 vs BAL (7 / 22 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
While Marcel Reece and Taiwan Jones got all the waiver wire buzz before this game, the rather unknown Jeremy Stewart collected seven carries on the day, second-most to Reece's 13. A majority of them came in the fourth quarter with the game already decided, but it is worth noting that in the first three quarters Stewart received more touches than Jones. Stewart read the blocks well on a sweep and showed some promising agility and determination between the tackles. While Stewart is only a name to remember in the deepest of leagues at this point, he did perform well in his chance with playing time this week.
2012 Week 11 vs NO (2 / 7 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 23 / 0 rec)
Like Jones, Stewart didn't receive many carries because of the success of Reece, collecting two for seven yards. However, Stewart did have a nice catch and run, picking up 23 yards on swing pass from Palmer on 2nd and 16. Stewart got up field quickly, including a mini hurdle over a diving arm tackle to pick up the first down.
2012 Week 12 vs CIN (7 / 26 / 0 rush, 6 / 6 / 37 / 0 rec)
Stewart enjoyed his best day as a pro against Cincinnati with 13 total touches and over 60 yards. For a player that most fantasy owners had not heard of two weeks ago, he has proven to be quite effective. This week, Stewart caught all six of his targets and showed nice shiftiness both between the tackles and after the catch. Late in the game, Stewart had an impressive jump cut on his way to his biggest gain, 26 yards, of the day. While it is unlikely that Stewart continues seeing consistent touches when McFadden and/or Goodson are fully healthy, he has impressed with his opportunities.
2012 Week 13 vs CLE (9 / 46 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Stewart was once-again the highly involvement backup to Marcel Reece while Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are on the sidelines. He showed a good pad level on interior runs where he continues to show patience at the point of attack. He was stuffed on a third-and-one rushing attempt near field goal range, after which he came up limping. He did not miss any time following the injury as he collected 20 yards on back-to-back carries later in the first half. He came out in the third quarter as the starter over Reece, gaining 10 yards on an early attempt. He was efficient with his touches and, while he is not likely to have any sustained value, has been a pleasant surprise with his recent uptick in playing time.
