How would Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert describe the current backfield of Jonathan Stewart, Fozzy Whittaker, rookie Cameron Artis-Payne and himself?

"We’re still a stable of running backs," Tolbert said. "We may not be at the Kentucky Derby. We may be at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, but we’re definitely some horses back there, ready to roll.

"And we’re all healthy. That’s the main thing. We’re all healthy, so we can all go at it."

Fantasy Impact: 

Stewart clearly is the lead horse. As the featured back the final five weeks of last season he averaged 5.3 yards per rush, second best among running backs during that span while Williams was out with an injury, the story said. Tolbert could see goal line and short yardage situations. He can play fullback and tight end too. The story added the real battle is at RB2 where the Panthers were impressed enough with the journeyman Whittaker last season that they rewarded him with a two-year deal in March. They also drafted Artis-Payne, who led the SEC in rushing at Auburn last season, believing he could be the every-down back if Stewart were injured.
