Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Stewart is expected to miss Week 4 and possibly another three games, per Ron Rivera. Cameron Artis-Payne should continue to lead the backfield in carries. He saw 48% of the running back touches, gaining a respectable 58 total yards against a very good Minnesota defense. This week, he faces the Falcons, who are #27 in RB aFPA. This is speculation, but Cam Newton is dealing with a foot injury, so the Panthers may be more inclined to hand the ball to CAP around the goal line.

Scouting Report

Week 4 at Atlanta
Cam Newton had a rough game against the Vikings last week, throwing three interceptions in a surprising Panthers loss. Cam managed 262 yards passing and ran in a touchdown, helping his fantasy output, but the Vikings defense harassed him all game, sacking last year’s MVP eight times!

This week should be better for Cam and the Panthers. They’ll go up against a Falcons defense that has allowed the fourth most passing yards this year and the fifth most points. They just gave up 376 yards and three touchdowns to Drew Brees, and Cam should be able to rebound from a tough outing. He’s our top option this week and should be active in all leagues.
