Coach Ron Rivera says Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart will have an opportunity to be the “hot hand” when Carolina visits Chicago on Sunday.
“I want to see one guy pound and get a rhythm, then see the other guy pound and get a rhythm,” Rivera said. “To me it’s hard for a back to get a rhythm when you’re coming out every other play.”
Stewart is listed as our 27th rated running back this week. He’s a decent RB2 option if you need a bye-week fill-in.
