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

Jonathan Stewart (foot) is expected to be ready for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Seahawks.


Pyro's take: Adam Schefter via Twitter "Panthers' RB Jonathan Stewart, who has missed past three games with a foot injury, is expected to play Sunday vs. Seattle, per source."

Jonathan Stewart (foot) did not practice Wednesday.


Pyro's take: Joe Person via Twitter "Jonathan Stewart not practicing today. Wasn't expected to. Ron Rivera said the goal is Monday.
Panthers don't have to release injury report."

Since the Panthers dont play this weekend, he probably wont start practicing until sometime next week.

Jonathan Stewart (foot) may practice Wednesday.


Pyro's take: Ed Werder via Twitter "#Panthers hopeful RB Jonathan Stewart returns for Week 17 from sprained foot. Ran well on treadmill and could practice Wednesday, per source"

Ron Rivera said Jonathan Stewart (foot) "might be" ready to play Week 17 against the Bucs.


Pyro's take: Joe Person via Twitter "Related: Rivera says Jonathan Stewart "might be" ready to play this week."

Carolina needs a win Sunday to ensure the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Jonathan Stewart (foot) was noncommittal on his Week 16 status.


Pyro's take: Steve Reed via Twitter "Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart says "I am trying to get back as fast as I can." Non-committal on playing vs. Atlanta."

Head coach Ron Rivera is not going to risk further injury to his star back. The Panthers have it all wrapped up, and J-Stew will be back for the NFL playoffs.

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.

Stewart looking for bounce back season

The last time the Panthers produced a 1,000-yard rusher was 2009, when Williams and Stewart became the only teammates in NFL history to top 1,100 rushing yards in the same season.

Last season was a tough one for Stewart. He started the year on the physically unable to perform list recovering from offseason surgery on both ankles. He ended the year trying (unsuccessfully it turned out) to return from a partially torn medial collateral ligament. All told, he saw action in six games.

Stewart looked ready to go the last few weeks, and there's no reason to believe he can't return to form. Despite foot problems that often limited him in practice, Stewart only missed two games in his first four NFL seasons, both because of a concussion. He's missed 17 games the last two seasons, but the ankle surgeries last offseason strengthened that trouble area.

Pyro's take: Stewart is going to have a very hard time getting back to his 1,100 yard form, especially with the crowed backfield in Carolina. Now that Cam Newton has less options at receiver, it is conceivable that he will run even more this season. Once Cam came to Carolina, the running backs have taken a backseat, and the biggest problem is that there are three guys on that seat.

Stewart restructures is contract

The Panthers restructured the contracts of three veterans – center Ryan Kalil, running back Jonathan Stewart and linebacker Thomas Davis – in moves that created about $7.25 million in cap space.

Gettleman asked seven players to rework their deals last offseason after he was hired, including those of Kalil and Stewart.

Stewart, who has missed more than half of the past two seasons with injuries, had his base salary reduced from $1.5 million to $785,000, according to the NFLPA salary figures.

Pyro's take: J-Stew has restructured his contract once again, and once again the Panthers backfield will be a hot mess in 2014. Now that he has restructured his contract it will once again be a three headed monster in Carolina.

For years this has been the case with Stewart and DeAngelo Williams, and they will continue with their long term time share. The days of thinking J-Stew was worth anything are over.

Jonathan Stewart on track for week 7 return

veteran running back Jonathan Stewart is on track to come off the physically unable to perform list when he's eligible in Week 7, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said recently. Stewart continues to rehab his surgically repaired right ankle.

Without a trusted backup, DeAngelo Williams has averaged 20 carries a game and is the league's third-leading rusher with 291 yards through three games.

Pyro's take: Stewart will definitely eat into DeAngelo's carries when he returns, which means this is a great time to put Williams on the trading block and see what you can get in return for him. The problem for these Carolina running backs is while they may get some decent yards the touchdowns are few and far between and split between the 3 backs and Cam Newton. Sell high on DeAngelo if you own him.

Jonathan Stewart may go on the PUP list

Stewart played in just nine games last season, and there's no telling when he'll be recovered enough to play football in 2013. Panthers coach Ron Rivera admitted Tuesday that Stewart might start the season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, which would knock the running back out of the first six games of the season. Stewart is recovering from ankle surgeries.

"At this point, anything is an option," Rivera said, via The Associated Press. "What you're hoping is you can get him on the football field, and we'll see once the doctor gets a chance to look at him."

That's a big change in tone from last week, when Rivera believed Stewart was on track to play in Week 1.

Pyro's take: This is tough news for Stewart, but good news for DeAngelo Williams and those of us who have been hoping to see one guy lead the way for the Panthers.

Stewart is a player that has never really jumped to the level that many expected to him to reach earlier in his career. Stewart also does not have many great plays that come to mind, unlike Williams who I can recall breaking long runs more than once.

Williams will get a boost in his rankings and if Stewart does hit the PUP list he will not be worth drafting unless you are in a really deep league.

Stewart gets another start for Panthers

Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has been declared inactive for todays game against the Giants.

Stewart good to go for Sunday

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (Achilles, toe) practiced again on Friday and is fully expected to play this weekend against the Vikings.

Pyro's take: He's probable on the injury report, as usual. The Vikings rush D will likely hold the Panthers RBs in check, but I expect Stewart to be used a little more than normal because of his power. Either way, he's no more than a flex on your fantasy team this week.

Stewart held out of practice today as usual

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (Achilles, toe) was held out of practice on Wednesday as usual, as he is now dealing with a toe injury on top of the soreness in his Achilles heel.

Pyro's take: We still wouldn't worry about Stewart missing the game this weekend, but like last week, his touches might be somewhat reduced. Either way, he has a tough matchup against the Vikings rush D, so don't play him as any more than a flex on your fantasy football team this weekend.

Stewart back at practice... as usual

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (Achilles) was back at practice on Thursday as usual.

Stewart takes normal day off from practice

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (Achilles) got his normal Wednesday off from practice this week.

Pyro's take: Great game last Sunday. Now it's back to the regular grind for the big RB. He's worth a flex play on your fantasy team as usual this weekend.
