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.

Fantasy Impact: Stewart is firmly entrenched as the starter. He only played in the first quarter. He had a three yard carry that was negated by a penalty. He has the starting job as long as he's healthy.

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.

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

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

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

Fantasy football is littered with risky propositions. There are injury-prone players, players who have rookies ready to steal their jobs or coaches ready to demote them on the depth chart, or players who lost valuable teammates in the offseason.  These guys might have great track records or might seem to have everything going for them

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.

Stewart is a solid back and 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.
