Scouting report

CAR RB Jonathan Stewart - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at New York Jets

Jonathan Stewart had a nice game against the Dolphins before the bye last week, putting up 110 yards on 17 carries. While Stewart should continue to get considerable touches each game on first and second downs, his season average of 3.3 yards per carry makes him hard to get excited about in most fantasy leagues. He has some low-end RB3 potential in standard league formats because of his workload, but he’s probably better left on your bench in most weeks.

CAR RB Jonathan Stewart - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Miami Dolphins

Jonathan Stewart had a rough game against the Falcons last week, averaging only 1.9 yards on 11 carries, and fumbling twice. Stewart continues to get touches, but his effectiveness has been off all season, and he’s averaging only 2.9 yards per carry on the season.

The Dolphins are seventh in the league in rushing yards allowed per game this season. While it’s possible the Panthers get up on the struggling Dolphins early, and Stewart gets a lot of carries as a result, it’s more likely Stewart ends up with his usual middling totals and winds up with around 30-40 yards. He’s a borderline option in deep, standard leagues, but most fantasy owners probably are considering whether he deserves a roster spot.

CAR RB Jonathan Stewart - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Jonathan Stewart had only 34 yards on 11 carries last week against the Bucs, but he also scored a touchdown. While he hasn’t been terribly productive, he is still averaging 13.75 carries per game on the season, making him a high-floor depth option, especially in standard leagues.

This week, Stewart faces an Atlanta run defense that has only allowed 2 rushing touchdowns all year. He’ll get his touches, but expect another 40-60 yard outing with an outside chance at a touchdown—low-end RB2 numbers in larger standard formats.

CAR RB Jonathan Stewart - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jonathan Stewart had only 48 yards on 14 carries last week against the Bears, as the Panthers offense struggled all game. Stewart is averaging only 3.0 yards per carry this season and is hard to trust, despite getting a fairly consistent workload on first and second down.

This week, Stewart has some low-end RB2 upside in larger leagues if you have bye week issues. He faces a Bucs team that allowed a pair of rushing touchdowns to LeSean McCoy last week and has given up the 10th-most fantasy points per game to opposing RBs this year. He should be considered a relatively high floor option in standard leagues if you just need a few points.

CAR RB Jonathan Stewart - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Chicago Bears

Jonathan Stewart was miserable against a tough Eagles run defense last week, losing 4 yards on 8 carries. While the Bears should provide more running room for the veteran back out of Oregon, Stewart should be considered a low-end RB2 option, at best, in standard formats. He may soon be droppable if Carolina starts to reduce his workload due to ineffectiveness.

CAR RB Jonathan Stewart - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Jonathan Stewart is averaging 15.4 carries per game, so he’s getting a consistent workload, but he’s only gaining 3.3 yards per carry, including only 21 yards on 18 carries last week against the Lions. Stewart is worth owning and considering in any given week due to his workload, but it’s concerning he’s been so unproductive with his opportunities.

This week he faces a tough Eagles run defense that has allowed only 3 rushing touchdowns all season, and only Denver is allowing less rushing yards per game. Stewart should be considered a fringe RB2 option at best in standard leagues, with limited value in PPR formats.

CAR RB Jonathan Stewart - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Detroit Lions

Jonathan Stewart had 14 carries for 68 yards last week against the Patriots, which seems to be par for the course with him this year. He hasn’t touched the ball less than 12 times so far, but he also hasn’t eclipsed 82 total yards from scrimmage. He should continue to be heavily used, but only in two-down situations, limiting his overall upside.

The Lions have been above-average against the run so far this season, but have allowed 3 rushing touchdowns, giving Stewart a little bit of upside. Fantasy owners should expect the usual dozen or so touches and 50-60 yards, making him a borderline RB2/RB3 option in standard leagues.
