Jonathan Stewart expected to sign with Giants

Running back Jonathan Stewart is expected to sign with the New York Giants, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Twitter.

Fantasy Impact

Stewart is reuniting with his former general manager and former offensive coordinator in New York, as Dave Gettleman and Mike Shula both have been hired to the same posts there. With this move, the Giants address an obvious need after poor performances from their running backs in 2017, but they are bringing in a 31-year-old Stewart who averaged a career-worst 3.4 yards-per-carry last season.

Jonathan Stewart released

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Carolina Panthers have released RB Jonathan Stewart on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

After 10 seasons in Carolina, the Panthers have released Stewart, the 13th overall pick in the 2008 draft. His release comes to no surprise since he's coming off of the worst statistical seasons of his career. Totaling 732 yards and seven touchdowns on 206 touches, he was a disappointment for his fantasy owners who believed he'd still make an impact in the wake of the addition of Christian McCaffrey. His touchdown production was the 30-year-old RB's saving grace. Without Stewart, the Panthers are in immediate need of an early-down back. Expect them to address this vacancy in both the free agent market and the upcoming NFL Draft.

Jonathan Stewart disappoints against Bucs

Jonathan Stewart rushed seven times for 19 yards and caught one pass for negative one yard against the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact

Stewart looked like a great play against a weak Bucs defense but he showed his downside at the worst time. He was also out-carried by Christian McCaffrey, a bad sign going forward. He'll be a middling option next weekend against Atlanta.

Jonathan Stewart totals 36 yards in win

Stewart rushed 11 times for 27 yards and caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Stewart didn't do much to follow up last Sunday's 103-yard, three-touchdown outing, but considering he entered Week 15 with nine games of under 50 rushing yards, fantasy owners shouldn't be that surprised by his performance. If anything, Stewart's three-week touchdown streak should've been what fueled expectations of him, but the veteran couldn't extend that stretch either. A reliable commodity from a usage standpoint -- Stewart has logged double-digit carries in all but one game this season -- the 30-year-old will now prepare for next Sunday's visit from the Buccaneers.

Jonthan Stewart has HUGE day in victory

Stewart rushed 16 times for 103 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Stewart started the practice week with foot and ankle soreness, but those issues didn't stop him from turning back the clock to produce a vintage performance Sunday. The 30-year-old set it off with a 60-yard touchdown on the Panthers' first offensive drive, marking his longest run in over three years, then quickly followed with a more common one-yard plunge on Carolina's next series. After the Vikings tied the game in the fourth quarter, Stewart put an exclamation point on his day by scoring another one-yarder to clinch victory with under two minutes remaining. Overall, Stewart not only topped 100 rushing yards for just the second time this season, but he also scored three rushing touchdowns for the first time in 129 career regular-season appearances. While that evidences the extent of Stewart's improbable outburst -- which came against one of the league's elite defenses, no less -- Stewart's fantasy owners can take added satisfaction knowing he's now found the end zone in three straight outings.
