Stewart is a solid back, who if healthy, will give you solid production in a good offense. Yes, Cam Newton takes some touchdowns away from him, but Newton's rushing ability helps Stewart as wellRashad Jennings is the lead back, and Paul Perkins has many of the same skills as Vereen, but Jennings is a capable receiving back if given a chance
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
In 2016, Jonathan Stewart will see a lot of carries this season and his job is secure. But with Cam Newton vulturing goal line carries, there is a low ceiling for receptions and TDs.

Only three running backs graded in Pro Football Focus' top 100 players of 2015. Adrian Peterson wasn't one of them. Jonathan Stewart was. Stewart finished the season with the second most broken tackles, and he is perhaps the most durable back in the NFL. You can't go wrong adding the Panther's workhorse in the mid-rounds of your draft.Vareen is much like many of the other pass-catching backs in fantasy football. He will pretty consistently put up five or six points, but he will never get enough touches to be worth starting. Even if Rashad Jennings goes down, he will have to fend off Paul Perkins, Orleans Darkwa and Andre Williams. You are better off looking elsewhere.

Came on strong at end of season, would be top five if not for the weekly threat of Cam vulturing red zone TD'sThe Giants backfield is a mess and Vereen should be no more than a 6-10 touch per game player.

5th Down Fantasy
Injury magnet could cede a few more carries this year to Payne in an effort to keep him fresh. Role limited to passing down specialist.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The guy is always banged up, so even though the role/talent is there, I'm not biting 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Stewart will count $9.55 million against the 2016 salary cap, which is staggering for a running back. He also turns 29 years old this year and has lingering foot issues from an injury suffered last season. It sounds like the Panthers will keep him and ride him for one more year, but with his injury problems, he is a RB3.
