Jonathan Stewart rushed 17 times for 110 yards in the Panthers' Week 10 win over the Dolphins.
It was his first 100-yard game of the season; Stewart's previous high was 68 yards in Week 4. He consistently ripped off chunks of yards against a previously stout Dolphins run defense that has simply cratered in recent weeks. The read-option worked with ease tonight, allowing all Panthers rushers plenty of space. Stewart wasn't targeted in the pass game and was one of the few players held out of the end zone, greatly limiting his fantasy production. He will be a touchdown-dependent RB3 against the Jets after the Panthers' bye. Nov 14 - 12:14 AM

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he still believes in Jonathan Stewart.

Stewart fumbled twice against the Falcons and played his fewest snaps of the season, but Rivera said they plan to keep getting him the ball. "That is why we brought him back in and gave him the football again," Rivera said. "That's why we gave him the carry at the end of the game as well." Despite the coach's comments, it would not be surprising to see the backfield touches to tilt more toward Christian McCaffrey moving forward.

Jonathan Stewart rushed 11 times for 21 yards in the Panthers' Week 9 win over the Falcons.

He wasn't targeted in the pass game. Stewart looked okay early in this one, ripping off a long run of nine yards, but he lost a fumble at the end of that run around the Falcons' 40-yard line. He again lost a second fumble in Atlanta territory later in the game. After that one, the Panthers essentially turned the backfield over to Christian McCaffrey, who totaled 94 yards and scored his first rushing touchdown. Stewart will be a low-floor RB3/4 next week against the Dolphins.
Nov 5 - 4:40 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed 11 times for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' Week 8 win over the Bucs.

Subbed in after Cameron Artis-Payne was stuffed on a pair of goal-line carries, Stewart finally notched his first rushing touchdown of 2017. His only other score came as a receiver in Week 1. Not running well behind a line that can't block, Stewart has settled in as a last-gasp RB3/FLEX in fantasy.
Oct 29 - 5:17 PM

Jonathan Stewart (toe) wasn't listed on the Panthers' final injury report for Week 8 against the Buccaneers.

He returned to a full practice Friday after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday. Stewart will play his usual early-down role Sunday at Tampa Bay, though he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 1 and makes for a middling RB3 in fantasy.
Oct 27 - 1:07 PM

Jonathan Stewart (toe) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

It's a new injury and practice routine for Stewart, though we've yet to see reason to be concerned about his Week 8 status. J-Stew's poor play is the far bigger worry. Even in a solid matchup with the Bucs, he'll be a low-end RB3.
Oct 26 - 2:50 PM

Jonathan Stewart (toe) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Stewart rarely does much on Wednesdays. He'll be an RB3 against the Bucs.
Oct 25 - 3:04 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed 14 times for 48 yards in the Panthers' Week 7 loss to the Bears.

Coming off a game where he went for negative four yards on eight carries, things did not look much better for Stewart early against the Bears, but he got it going in the second quarter with a couple good runs including a 13-yard scamper. Unfortunately for Stewart, the Panthers played from behind the entire second half, and he only saw two carries after the break. As always, Stewart will be a touchdown-or-bust option next week against the Bucs.
Oct 22 - 4:19 PM

Jonathan Stewart (ankle) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

He's in no danger of missing Sunday's game in Chicago. Stewart has averaged a dismal 2.9 yards per carry this year and hasn't found the end zone since Carolina's season opener. He's a desperation RB3 at this point.
Oct 19 - 2:41 PM

Jonathan Stewart (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Stewart played through the ankle issue last week, managing minus-four yards on eight carries. He's off the fantasy map outside of TD-heavy leagues.
Oct 18 - 2:50 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed eight times for -4 yards in the Panthers' Week 6 loss to the Eagles.

Aside from Cam Newton, the Panthers were monumentally inept on the ground this evening. Although his offensive line was porous, J-Stew didn't help matters by showing absolutely zero wiggle. At times, he resembled ex-Panthers FB Mike Tolbert with the way he was struggling to move laterally. Stewart also batted up a Cam Newton pass for an interception. J-Stew now has 26 carries for 17 yards over his past two games. Crazy stuff. He will be a low-upside RB3 for Week 7 against the Bears.
Oct 12 - 11:58 PM

Jonathan Stewart (ankle) returned to Panthers practice Tuesday, getting in a limited session.

The Panthers have been monitoring Stewart's reps on a short week. He'll remain a workload/goal-line carry based RB2 for Thursday's game against the Eagles.
Oct 10 - 2:40 PM

Jonathan Stewart (ankle) was listed as a non-participant in Panthers practice Monday.

The Panthers didn't actually practice, but Stewart's injury bears monitoring on a short week. He has a lengthy history of foot problems dating back to college. On the off chance Stewart can't play on Thursday night against the Eagles, so-far scatback Christian McCaffrey could take on a much bigger role.
Oct 9 - 5:17 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed 18 times for 21 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 21 yards in the Panthers' Week 5 win over the Lions.

Stewart's usage has been consistent, but his rushing efficiency left something to be desired on Sunday against a solid Lions defensive front. He remains a touchdown-dependent flex option entering a Week 6 date with the Eagles.
Oct 8 - 5:24 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed 14 times for 68 yards in the Panthers' Week 4 win over the Patriots.

The closest J-Stew came to a goal-line carry was from the Patriots' 13-yard line early in the third quarter. He committed a catastrophic fumble that nearly derailed the Panthers' upset bid. Stewart still doesn't have a rushing touchdown through four games. Christian McCaffrey hasn't applied any pressure between the tackles, however, so Stewart's role isn't in doubt. He gets the Lions' surprisingly stout defense for Week 5.
