DeAngelo Williams did not practice Thursday and Mike Tolbert was limited, meaning Jonathan Stewart could be responsible for most of the load Sunday Night.

Fantasy Impact: Jonathan Stewart would face a Steelers defense allowing the 8th most fantasy points and 2nd most rushing yards to running backs. Check back to see if Williams and Tolbert are active Sunday night.

Jonathan Stewart filled in for the injured DeAngelo Williams during Sunday's game against Detroit. He had moderate success, running the ball 15 times for 37 yards with a TD. He also caught 1 pass for 22 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Stewart will be worth a look on the waiver wire this week. DWill's status for next week is still unknown and it is a solid fantasy matchup against Pittsburgh. Mike Tolbert also got a little banged up during the game. Monitor Williams' status through the week. If he sits out, Stewart will be a great fill in option for fantasy.

Jonathan Stewart gained just 20 yards on 9 carries for a putrid 2.2 yard per carry average. Stewart earned 30% of his total yardage on his longest tote of 6 yards. However Jonathan did catch all 3 of his targets for 17 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Last year Stewart was a serviceable RB2/3 in (PPR) point per reception leagues last year and those in deeper leagues need to keep an eye on his usage. An injury to either DeAngelo Williams or Mike Tolbert would make Stewart a solid RB2 in PPR leagues.

Coach Ron Rivera said on Monday that “we took a few shots at him. He took a few bumps, hit the ground a couple of times but he popped up and kept going. That’s good.” Jonathan Stewart said “my run motion coming out the gate, making cuts, all that stuff, is as fluid as I’ve been in a while, which is good,” and that “I don’t have to second-guess anything.” This morning (Tuesday) the Carolina Panthers twitter feed noted that he’s ‘running great in practice’ and ‘looks fast as ever.’ (Source: Charlotte Observer)

Fantasy Impact: Stewart returned to his first training camp action on Sunday and has practiced three consecutive days without rest or a setback. If this progress continues, he’s expected to see his first game action this Sunday night. When healthy Jonathan Stewart is the best of the three Carolina running backs and does offer some upside in PPR formats. Stewart even participated in goal line drills yesterday. He’s worthy of a late round flier.

Panthers GM Dave Gettleman said Jonathan Stewart will likely be out 1-2 weeks recovering from a hamstring injury. Steve Reed went on to say in subsequent tweets that Rivera said it wasn’t as serious as hamstrings can be and that he’ll participate in some walkthroughs. (Source: Steve Reed on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jonathan Stewart was recovering from offseason ankle surgery and like many injury recoveries, that has lead to an injury in a support area of the body. When healthy, Stewart is a quality RB3 or Flex and even a strong RB2 when getting the bulk of the carries. He is a veteran and knows the system, but a return for week 3 of the preseason would give fantasy owners a better idea of his health heading into the regular season.

Jonathan Stewart has a "severely" sprained knee, and will not be re-evaluated until Friday.

Worth a shot at home if D-Will remains out. Did score last week.

Keep an eye on DeAngelo Williams injury; if he doesn't play Stewart will be a nice RB start since Tolbert is hurt as well.

If DeAngelo is out, this is where we would rank him this week.

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues Owned in 58% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Jonathan Stewart has been the most talented running back in Carolina for several years now, but the presence of DeAngelo Williams and some injuries have mostly kept Stewart from being a viable and reliable RB starter for fantasy football during that time.
