Will see a fair amount of snaps as the uber talented Stewart always seems to be banged upI've always been high on Thomas' skill set, expect major jump in make-or-break campaign  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
D-Will is likely on his last few legs. Luckily for him Jonathan Stewart is not 100% heading into the seaosn, which means Williams could have his few weeks of RB#2/#3 potential. While I would not get too excited, I would not let him slip too low in my draft just in case he starts against the Saints.Daniel Thomas was once on top of the Fantasy RB world. For the first time since Week 5 of the 2012 season, Thomas has the chance to reclaim Fantasy Glory and be a Fantasy RB. All eyes and ears are on Lamar Miller, but Daniel Thomas is the underdog of this camp to win that job. Either way, watch him closely we all know that he can be a BEAST.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
D-Will is hard to trust normally but against Seattle's elite run D? No thanks.   
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
No matter how much yardage he's able to produce, Williams is still likely No. 4 on the Carolina depth chart in goal-line situations behind Mike Tolbert, Cam Newton and Jonathan Stewart.Thomas has never been able to seize any of his opportunities thus far, and he's also now a concussion risk. This seems to be Lamar MIller's job to lose.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Williams will be the starter for the Panthers, but Mike Tolbert and Cam Newton will take away goalline work and some 3rd down work. Add to that the Seahawks top 10 run defense and you may be asking for trouble.
