2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Jonathan Stewart was a first-round pick in 2008 due to a crazy mix of size (5’10”, 235 pounds) and speed (4.38 forty)

(+) Scored double-digit touchdowns in his first two years with the Panthers, showing he indeed has some high upside to his fantasy game

(+) Last season, Stewart made huge strides in the passing game significantly increasing his reception total to 47 catches for 413 yards (34 catches for 289 yards in the three previous years combined)

(+) Had a tremendous yards per carry average last season at 5.4 YPC

(+) The Panthers have one of the easier schedules against the run again this season

(+) He’s still only 25-years-old


(–) Was one of the more up-and-down running backs in the league last season

(–) Scored just five total TDs in 2011 (4 rushing, 1 receiving) with the touchdown-vulture that is Cam Newton under center

(–) With Carolina giving DeAngelo Williams a huge contract last year, Stewart’s playing time may fall even further if the team’s brass decide to fully commit to Williams

(–) Had the least amount of attempts in his four-year career last season and now the Panthers brought in yet ANOTHER RB (Mike Tolbert) to potentially steal his carries

2009 Review

jonathan stewart is good when he gets his carries

Give Jonathan Stewart just one full season as a full-time starter and there’s no doubt what you’d see emerge is a Top-5 fantasy RB for years to come.  In the three games DeAngelo Williams missed in 2009, Stewart averaged 23.3 carries/game, and with those carries, Johnny put up 150.3 yards/game, one TD/game, and an average of 21.8 fantasy points per game.  Multiply that out over a full 16-game season and you’re looking at some absolutely mind-boggling numbers.  However, the reality of the situation is that the Panthers use both Stewart and Williams as a platoon, and even though both came out of 2009 with close to fantasy starter numbers, neither will crack the Top-5 like they would if they were used on a full-time basis.

jonathan stewart 2009 stats

~ Set career bests in yards (1,133), attempts (221), total touchdowns (11), yards/attempt (5.1), yards/game (70.8), receptions (18), receiving yards (139), and total yards from scrimmage (1,272)

2010 Fantasy Outlook

The only way it would be possible for Stewart to equal or surpass the numbers he put up in 2009 would be if DeAngelo Williams were to get injured again for at least 3-4 games.  Stewart has all the potential and skill in the world to put together a Top-5 RB fantasy season, but the Panthers are gung ho on keeping their two stud running backs fresh throughout the year, thus diminishing those chances immensely.  The scary upside he possesses is definitely worth taking a shot on him, because even within an RBBC, close to 1,000 yards and 10 TDs are certainly within reach.  Those numbers, however, would make Stewart no more than a middle to low-end RB2 for your team in 2010.

~ DeAngelo Williams AND the Panthers are both very happy to keep the RBBC going in 2010

~ Carolina’s offensive line is awesome and will continue to open holes for both backs

~ No more Jake Delhomme may mean no more 8-in-the-box against them

Injury Report


Though he's had his bumps and bruises thus far, Stewart is a young buck splitting carries and played in all 16 games last two seasons, so we wouldn't worry TOO much here

Stewart, McCaffrey in Rotation

Pyro's take: "Panthers rookie tailback Christian McCaffrey worked in a rotation with veteran Jonathan Stewart, rushing seven times for 33 yards. McCaffrey's best runs were grinding out 12 yards through the teeth of Houston's defense and beating tacklers to the edge for a 7-yard scamper. As impressive as the draft's No. 8 overall pick has been in the passing game, offensive coordinator Mike Shula is unlikely to tip his hand on McCaffrey's route concepts in preseason action."

Fantasy Goo: Jonathan Stewart is a steal in the double digit rounds of most drafts, although his ADP has been creeping up to the 9th round over the past month he’s still a value if you’re unable to snag our “League Winners”. McCaffrey is being drafted near his ceiling in the third, but if he slips to the late 4th early 5th I’ll be all over him. The McCaffrey hype train is about to get out of control so I don’t see him falling to a position of value.

Stewart Not Done Yet

Pyro's take: "Everyone from head coach Ron Rivera to running backs coach Jim Skipper has insisted that Stewart’s role will not change. And Stewart himself has made it clear he’s not at all concerned. The punishing 240-pound runner will continue to see the bulk of the carries."

Fantasy Goo: Fantasy Goo: With a MFL10 ADP in the 12th round Stewart is a steal right now, although the news is getting out and his ADP has started to rise since this article was released.

J-Stew To Stay in Carolina Blue

Pyro's take: Okay its not Carolina Blue, but its in Carolina, right? The deal is a one year extension through the 2018 season for the 30 year old running back.

Fantasy Goo: J-Stew's best days are behind him, and it is largely anticipated that the Panthers will be going after an RB early in the draft. Expect about a 60-40 split in favor of J-Stew before he is worked out of the rotation in 2017.

Tolbert Cut by Carolina

Pyro's take: Mike Tolbert has been released by the Panthers. This deal will free up $1.5mm in cap space.

Fantasy Goo: This could hint at the idea that the Panthers are looking to add a RB in the draft or saving for a top tier CB to replace the ghost of Josh Norman.

Could be a Long Day at the Office for J-Stew

Pyro's take: Carolina's starting Tackle and Center are both out.

Fantasy Goo: Michael Oher and Ryan Kalil are both out. It could be a long day for Stewart against the Chiefs.

Fozzy to feel the Payne

CHARLOTTE – Fozzy Whittaker did well with 100 rushing yards against the San Francisco 49ers in place of injured running back Jonathan Stewart, but Cameron Artis-Payne, likely will serve as Carolina’s “feature back” Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Pyro's take: CHARLOTTE – Fozzy Whittaker did well with 100 rushing yards against the San Francisco 49ers in place of injured running back Jonathan Stewart, but Cameron Artis-Payne, likely will serve as Carolina’s “feature back” Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Goo: First Fozzy now Cameron? If true all those waiver pickups of Fozzy will have been a waste. Cameron Artis-Payne is good enough to carry the load the rest of the season if needed. James Stewart gets hurt as often as anyone so, snag Cameron Artis-Payne now off of your waiver wire. It may be a bit risky until we get more assurance that Cameron is the guy but, I love risk. Sometimes taking a swing can net a home run... I mean touchdown!

Jonathan Stewart To Miss At Least A Week Or Two Due To Hamstring Injury

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera

Pyro's take: Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera told the media that RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) is expected to miss "at least a week or two" of football activities as a result of a hamstring injury suffered during Week two's matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Cameron Artis-Payne and Fozzy Whitaker are expected to be part of the Panthers' RBBC Week three in place of injured RB Jonathan Stewart.

Fantasy Goo: It's to be determined what Artis-Payne's usage will be, with rumors varying from him seeing a majority of the work to others believing he'll simply be part of a very loaded committee approach with Fozzy Whitaker. Considering the tough opponent in Minnesota and the fact is that there's nothing clear about this timeshare Week 3. As of now Fozzy is worth a pickup considering Stewart could miss extended time, but owners should temper expectations this weekend.

Carolina GameScript to Favor the Ground Game


Pyro's take: Carolina is expected to score the most points in Week #2. They play a San Francisco team that is predicted to score the fewest amount of points. The game itself holds the largest spread of the week.

Fantasy Goo: Vegas is telling us that this game is most likely going to be a blowout. So, if that indeed does unfold, Carolina will look to run early and often. They will have plenty of red zone opportunities. That bodes well for the two RBs. Yes, I am including Fozzy here. He is the number 2 it seems. They know J-Stew is a bit injury prone, and this team has plans of going deep into the play-offs. So if indeed that game-script unfolds and they are blowing the 49’ers back to Gold Rush days, then they could easily want to pull J-Stew and let Fozzy roll. Oh, did I mention Carolina lost their opener, and has had 10 days to prepare for this game?

Panther’s running back Jonathan Stewart is limited by his foot he injured during the Super Bowl

Rivera said the Panthers are being cautious with Stewart, who ran for 989 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games in 2015.

Pyro's take: Rivera said the Panthers are being cautious with Stewart, who ran for 989 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games in 2015. Stewart, 29, participated in positional drills Tuesday, but did not appear to be involved in the team portion of practice. “Lately he said he’s been feeling really good, so (Tuesday) he got a good dose of it,” Rivera said. “We’re really trying to be smart with that and I wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent, but it’s almost there.”

Fantasy Goo: Only three years out of eight years Jonathan Stewart played in all 16 regular season games. When he is out there he plays very well and can help your fantasy team. You will want to draft plenty of other running backs if you want to draft Stewart in 2016. He is older and has a laundry list of past injuries. Drafting him and expecting him to last is a gamble. The best gamble might be to not draft him, let someone else waive him when he gets hurt and then you swoop in and pluck him off the waiver wire when he is about to come back. Unfortunately, a situation like that is about as odds on as drafting him and having him last the full fantasy season.

Cameron Artis-Payne, Mike Tolbert, and Fozzy Whitaker will share duties again.

Jonathan Stewart is due for a breakout game


Pyro's take: Running back Jonathan Stewart is due for a breakout game. He had a quiet 91 yards rushing and a touchdown on 22 attempts last week against a solid Tennessee defense. He faces a Washington defense Sunday that ranks 30th against the run and 32nd in rushing yards per attempt. The Redskins have given up an average of 181.2 yards rushing in the past five games. A back has had 129 yards or more in four of those games. Carolina has rushed for more than 100 yards in 20 consecutive games, tied with Seattle for the longest streak in the NFL. -- David Newton

Should find running lanes against Indy's defense


Pyro's take: He should open up a few more on Monday night against an Indianapolis defense that is allowing 122.7 rushing yards per game. The biggest knock on Stewart is that quarterback Cam Newton and fullback Mike Tolbert take away touchdowns near the goal line. Newton had one and Tolbert had two last week against Philadelphia. -- David Newton

Johnathan Stewart did not practice on Weds.


Pyro's take: Johnathan Stewart has not been able to do what many owners thought he was cabable of doing, and perhaps his knee injury has everything to do with it. It might be wise to park Stewart for a couple games to give him time to heal.

Being Limited

Steve Reed, who covers the Carolina Panthers for the AP, has stated that "Bene Benwikere (ankle), Melvin White (knee) and Jonathan Stewart (ankle) were limited. Everyone else practiced."

Pyro's take: Looks like another game time decision for Jonathan Stewart. Even if he plays, use caution, as he should only be used in an special situations, against the Falcons, he could be considered as a flex.

Stewart Returning

Johnathan Stewart expects to play this week and according to Max Henson, the staff writer for Carolina Panthers, says that "he is feeling much better and expects to play this week." Stewart practiced fully Wednesday for the first time since suffering a knee injury in Week 3 against Pittsburgh and said following practice that he expects to play when the Panthers visit the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

"Jonathan looked good. He had a good day," Rivera said. "We'll see how he is tomorrow. He took the majority of the reps, all the reps he was slated to take.

"I was excited to see him on the football field, and hopefully there are no residuals tomorrow and he'll be ready to roll for practice."

Pyro's take: Johnathan Stewart will be coming into the crowded backfield his has grown accustomed too. He should be his normal self, mostly useless to your fantasy team.
