DeAngelo Williams Fantasy News

Lack of receiving threat could hinder Carolina rushing game

During a Thursday interview on NFL Network's "NFL AM," running back DeAngelo Williams sounded particularly exasperated that the Panthers lost "all" of their wide receivers this offseason.

When asked if the lack of receiving weapons puts more pressure on the running game, Williams pointed to general manager Dave Gettleman's office.

"It puts more pressure on the front office because you make these moves, getting rid of our four receivers, but you got to bring in guys," he said. "No slight to Cotchery and Avant that we just signed. I don't know many receivers on other teams, so I'm not saying they're no-name guys, but our guys made their names all by themselves ... I mean, I don't know where we go from there."

Williams also noted that Cam Newton's recent ankle surgery makes the turnover at receiver more troubling because the quarterback won't be able to get his timing down with the new pass-catchers.

"I don't have any concerns so to speak," he said about the offense in the regular season. "I just don't want to see eight, nine guys in the box week in and week out because we're working on our timing."

Fantasy Impact:

Newton's stock has taken a hit given the current state of the Carolina receiving corps. The team will need to find 1-2 talented rookies who are ready to contribute immediately.

Jonathan Stewart has torn MCL
Monday, December 9, 2013, 9:54am

Joe Person on Twitter - [Full Article]

Panthers spokesman says RB Jonathan Stewart did tear his MCL.

Fantasy Impact:

The Panthers are apparently holding out hope Stewart will return in Week 17, but that's probably a stretch. For now, the RB situation in Carolina looks a little clearer from a fantasy perspective as DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert will now carry the load, most likely the rest of the way.

Kenjon Barner RB
Tavarres King WR
Marvin McNutt WR
Josh Norman CB
Chris Scott G
Jordan Senn LB

Fantasy Impact:

DeAngelo Williams is expected to get the start at RB with Mike Tolbert and Jonathan Stewart working in.
