After Kelvin Benjamin went down with a torn ACL, the Panthers kept Stewart out of the game as a precaution. Jonathan is still slated as the primary running back with an offense dedicated to running the ball. The running back position is deep on this roster so keeping Stewart out of the lineup is a safe move. (Source: Sports World Report)

Fantasy Impact: Kelvin Benjamin going down to injury was a positive and a negative for Carolina. The box will be stacked more often without Kelvin to stretch the field but dedication to the run is even more important. The running back depth chart is deep but the coach reiterated Jonathan is the primary back.

He's scary, but he's also awesome. A healthy Stewart is rare, but one of the best runners in the league as evidenced by his finish to the 2014 season when he ran 128 times for 679 yards over his last seven games (including two playoff games vs Arizona and Seattle). That 5.3 yards per carry isn't going to be accomplished by many other runners as he was ranked second in the league by Pro Football Focus with 1 missed tackle per every 3.5 touches. Marshawn Lynch was ranked first.

Averaged over 100 YFS in final 7 games of '14 (playoffs included) - finally free of platoon with DeAngelo, should see career-high workload

J-Stew finally grew up into a legit featured back and D-Will is a goner, but this is a guy who just never stays healthy. I'm supposed to bet an early pick on that changing?

Stewart was the featured back during the homestretch playing almost 70% of the snaps and tallying 99 yards rushing per contest. He has RB2 value with upside if he can see that workload in 2015. He will be slightly hurt by the injury to WR Kelvin Benjamin, teams will be able to stack more defenders in the box.

Jonathan Stewart missed 3 games last season and still led Carolina in carries with 175 and touches with 200, averaging 4.6 yards per carry. DeAngelo Williams is now in Pittsburgh which increases Stewart's fantasy value, but Stewart is injury prone. Since 2012, Stewart has missed a total of 20 games due to injuries. Stewart could have 220-230 carries under offensive coordinator Mike Shula this season.

Stewart is now the starter with Cameron Artis-Payne running behind him. You are probably aware that Stewart is injured every year, but if he can stay healthy should put up over 1,000 combined yards and 6 TDs. I just don't think he can stay healthy and if you do draft him you need to pick up his hand-cuff Artis-Payne.

An underrated RB2 with an easy schedule

Panthers lead back with Williams gone, but hasn't turned in a full season in three years.

DeAngelo Williams is finally out of the picture and if Stewart can (big uncertainty) continue where he left off in 2014, owners will get tremendous return on investment.

Jonathan Stewart is the ultimate candidate for “what might have been” discussions. Since entering the league in 2008, Stewart has not started more than eight games in a season, thanks in large part to the presence of DeAngelo Williams. The two have cannibalized each other’s value for years, but with Williams now backing up Le’Veon... Read More
