Came on strong at end of season, would be top five if not for the weekly threat of Cam vulturing red zone TD's

- Raju Byfield, Win My Fantasy League

The Giants backfield is a mess and Vereen should be no more than a 6-10 touch per game player.

- Raju Byfield, Win My Fantasy League

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.

- Jeff Boggis, Fantasy Football Empire

 
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 well

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

Rashad 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

Vereen finished the season as the #26 RB in PPR formats, but was one of the less consistent pass-catching backs in 2015. (For reference, ...

Injury magnet could cede a few more carries this year to Payne in an effort to keep him fresh.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

Role limited to passing down specialist.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

The guy is always banged up, so even though the role/talent is there, I'm not biting

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

 
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.
