Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

According to Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review, the Panthers are awaiting the results of an MRI on running back Jonathan Stewart’s hamstring strain, but coach Ron Rivera said: “It’s going to be at least a week.”

Related players: Cameron Artis-Payne, Fozzy Whittaker, Mike Tolbert

Fantasy Impact:

Backup Fozzy Whittaker ran 16 times for 100 yards against the 49ers yesterday, but Rivera said they prefer to use him as a change-of-pace back, along with fullback Mike Tolbert. So with Stewart out this week against the Vikings, they could be starting Cameron Artis-Payne, who hasn’t played in either of this year’s games. With Stewart sidelined for a three-game stretch late in the season, Artis-Payne turned 38 total touches into 210 yards and a touchdown. He averaged 4.60 YPC during that span.

Panthers RB Mike Tolbert (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 21. Tolbert is expected to play, though he isn’t much of a fantasy option.

Panthers RB Mike Tolbert (knee) took full practice reps again Thursday. Tolbert is expected to play, though he isn’t much of a fantasy option.

Wednesday, February 3, 2016, 7:22pm

Friday, January 1, 2016, 6:26pm

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17. With Fozzy Whittaker (ankle, out) also out, Cameron Artis-Payne should see the bulk of the touches with Mike Tolbert serving in a complementary role.

Wednesday, December 30, 2015, 6:13pm

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) did not practice Wednesday. It appears that Stewart will remain out. With Fozzy Whittaker also out, Cameron Artis-Payne should see the bulk of the touches with Mike Tolbert serving in a complementary role.

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 16. Last week, Cameron Artis-Payne out-touched Mike Tolbert and Fozzy Whittaker by a margin of 16-to-9. With Stewart out, we expect Artis-Payne to serve as the lead back in a nice matchup with the Falcons.

Thursday, December 24, 2015, 6:12pm

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) missed practice again Thursday. Stewart has been ruled out. Last week, Cameron Artis-Payne out-touched Mike Tolbert and Fozzy Whittaker by a margin of 16-to-9. With Stewart out, we expect Artis-Payne to serve as the lead back in a nice matchup with the Falcons.

Wednesday, December 23, 2015, 6:11pm

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) did not practice Wednesday. Stewart may be able to return this week, though the Panthers #1 priority is to get him healthy for a postseason run. Last week, Cameron Artis-Payne out-touched Mike Tolbert and Fozzy Whittaker by a margin of 16-to-9. If Stewart remains out, we expect Artis-Payne to serve as the lead back in a nice matchup with the Falcons.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15. It’s not completely clear who is the best start with Stewart out. HC Ron Rivera said early in the week that either Fozzy Whittaker or Mike Tolbert would start, but later in the week he said that he expects Cameron Artis-Payne to “play early” on Sunday. Of the 75 non-Stewart carries this year, Tolbert has seen 45 (60%), Whittaker 18 (24%) and Artis-Payne 12 (16%), but Artis-Payne hasn’t been active lately. Last week, Whittaker out-touched Tolbert 9-to-8, but the game was a blowout, so don’t read too much into it. We feel that Tolbert has the best chance to find the end zone, so he’s probably the best play.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) missed practice again Thursday. Ron Rivera said that Stewart isn’t going to play this week. The Panthers have talked about giving him rest down the stretch, but they don’t have home field advantage locked up at this point. Complicating matters, it’s not completely clear who is the best start with Stewart out. There was an ESPN report in early December that Cameron Artis-Payne would take over as the lead back, but he hasn’t even been active the last few weeks, and continues to play behind Mike Tolbert and Fozzy Whittaker. If Stewart sits, we’d probably get a three-headed committee. Of the 75 non-Stewart carries this year, Tolbert has seen 45 (60%), Whittaker 18 (24%) and Artis-Payne 12 (16%), but Artis-Payne hasn’t been active lately. Last week, Whittaker out-touched Tolbert 9-to-8, but the game was a blowout, so don’t read too much into it.
