Buffall Bills - [Full Article]

In a crushing blow for Mike Tolbert enthusiasts everywhere, the Bills FB has been ruled out for the team's Week 11 contest against the Los Angeles Chargers after missing three straight practices.

Fantasy Impact:

Tolbert headed into Week 11 as the Bills' second-leading rusher (at the running back position) behind LeSean McCoy. On the season, Tolbert toted the rock 50 times for 179 yards and 1 touchdown. He also caught 12 of his 13 targets for 61 yards. We had Tolbert ranked as our No. 60 RB in all formats and McCoy is a top-6 RB this week.

Bills cut RB Jonathan Williams

Sunday, September 3, 2017, 3:16pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

In a surprise move, the Buffalo Bills waived running back Jonathan Williams on Sunday, NFL Network reported.

Williams was expected to play a significant role behind LeSean McCoy in the Bills' backfield after Mike Gillislee signed a restricted free-agent deal with the New England Patriots in the offseason.

Williams, a fifth-round pick of the Bills in 2016, played in 11 games last season. He rushed 27 times for 94 yards and one touchdown.

Related players: Mike Tolbert, Joe Banyard, Taiwan Jones

Fantasy Impact:

Williams seemed like a popular pick among 4for4.com subscribers who shared their squads on our Discuss Your Team forum, so owners obviously want to take note here. Without Williams, the Bills are now expected to use veteran Mike Tolbert as their top option behind McCoy. The team also kept running backs Joe Banyard and Taiwan Jones, whose main contributions are expected to come on special teams, on their 53-man roster.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart to miss 'at least a week'

Monday, September 19, 2016, 1:34pm

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.
