While Christian McCaffrey deservedly got a ton of fantasy buzz this preseason, Stewart remains relevant, and will continue to play the role of the standard running back. The 49ers were the worst team against running backs in 2016, and haven't made enough changes to improve significantly. The Panthers will likely be playing from ahead, which should allow them to lean on Stewart and the running game in this one, and it's a good bet that this will be one of Stewart's best games of the season.

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.
