Panthers rule out RB DeAngelo Williams (finger), J-Stew gets the start

Carolina Panthers - [Full Article]

With Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams out for Sunday's game, Ron Rivera says Jonathan Stewart will start at RB with Fozzy Whittaker behind him.

Fantasy Impact: 

In the five games that DeAngelo Williams has missed in the last two seasons, Stewart has averaged 14.8 touches for 62.4 total yards. With Williams out, J-Stew’s workload should be safe. Stewart gained 110 total yards last week in a similar matchup, and is running well (4.3 YPC) despite the sorry state of his offensive line. The only concern is that Mike Tolbert is back in the mix; he could steal a goal-line carry (or two).
