Jonathan Stewart rushed for 96 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries in the Panthers' Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

Stewart had his longest run of the season in this one, taking a handoff 47 yards up the middle and into the red zone. Stewart has now scored three touchdowns in his last two games and seven over his last six. Last season, he was the one getting vultured at the goal line by Cam Newton, but this year the Panthers are actually letting Stewart tote it. His touchdowns came from one and three yards out in the third quarter. Stewart offers nothing in the passing game, but his volume and touchdown upside make him an every-week RB2 ahead of Week 13 at the Seahawks.
Nov 27 - 7:59 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed 18 times for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' Week 11 win over the Saints.

He added an eight-yard reception. Stewart's score was an impressive, skying one-yard dive over the plane of the end zone. Otherwise, he was comprehensively ineffective against the Saints' improving defense. Stewart has just 112 yards on 46 carries (2.43 YPC) over his past three games. He's gone in the gutter with the rest of Carolina's offense. Stewart will be a touchdown-dependent RB2 against the Raiders in Week 12.
Nov 18 - 12:02 AM

Jonathan Stewart isn't listed on the Week 11 injury report.

He didn't practice earlier this week with the Panthers on a short week ahead of Thursday night's tilt with the Saints. Stewart has routinely been getting numerous rest days at practice. He'll be a high-end RB2 Thursday night.
Nov 16 - 1:44 PM

Jonathan Stewart (undisclosed) didn't practice on Tuesday.

Stewart didn't appear to be hurt in Sunday's loss to Kansas City and is probably just getting a breather ahead of Thursday's home game against New Orleans. J-Stew has totaled just 81 rushing yards over his last two outings, but remains a weekly RB2 in fantasy.
Nov 15 - 12:21 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed 13 times for 39 yards in the Panthers' Week 10 loss to the Chiefs.

He had a long gain of 10 yards. Stewart legitimately had very minimal running room all afternoon with two of his offensive linemen out with injuries. Cam Newton was the Panthers' leading rusher with 54 yards and also scored a four-yard touchdown. Stewart will be an RB2 Thursday night vs. the Saints.
Nov 13 - 4:39 PM

Jonathan Stewart (rest) returned to a full practice on Friday.

Stewart didn't practice on Thursday but he was just getting a maintenance day. He was not listed on the Panthers' final injury report and is ready to roll for Sunday's home game against Kansas City. Stewart is a weekly RB2 in fantasy.
Nov 11 - 1:04 PM

Jonathan Stewart (non-injury) did not practice Thursday.

Stewart also sat out Wednesday, but he is not dealing with an injury. He followed the same routine last week before handling 15 touches against the Rams. He will be a solid RB2 this week against the Chiefs.
Nov 10 - 12:26 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed 15 times for 42 yards in the Panthers' Week 9 win over the Rams.

J-Stew wasn't targeted in the passing game. Coming off back-to-back great efforts since returning from a hamstring injury, J-Stew got bottled up in a game that featured little offense on both sides. There weren't any drives for him to finish with scores. Stewart will remain an RB2 for next week's game against the Chiefs, and should see in the neighborhood of 15-20 touches.
Nov 6 - 7:34 PM

Jonathan Stewart returned to practice Friday.

Stewart got the days off Wednesday and Thursday for rest purposes. He'll be a high-end RB2 for a road date with the Rams. Stewart has four touchdowns over the past two games and is getting more goal-line looks.
Nov 4 - 10:48 AM

Jonathan Stewart (undisclosed) is not practicing Thursday.

Stewart was listed as out with a "non-injury" Wednesday, suggesting this is just another day of rest for the veteran back. Still, missing two practices in a row is at least worth a note. Stewart will be a name to watch on Friday's report.
Nov 3 - 12:10 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed 25 times for 95 yards and two touchdowns and caught 1-of-2 targets for 25 yards in the Panthers' Week 8 win over the Cardinals.

Cam Newton was stuffed repeatedly on run plays inside the red zone, and Stewart cleaned them up. He did lose a fourth-quarter fumble that temporarily gave the Cardinals life, but the Panthers went right back to Stewart and he salted the game away in clock-killing mode. A high-volume workhorse in a run-heavy offense, Stewart always has the ability to overcome tough matchups on sheer volume and scoring potential. He gets the Rams' defense next.
Oct 30 - 4:22 PM

Jonathan Stewart rushed 19 times for 85 yards and two touchdowns in the Panthers' Week 6 loss to the Saints.

Returning after missing three weeks with a hamstring strain, Stewart got right back in the mix of things. Both of his touchdowns were goal-line plunges from two yards and one yard out. If Cam Newton hadn't been in his first game back from a concussion, he likely would have vultured those touchdown opportunities from Stewart. It's possible OC Mike Shula starts dialing up more scoring looks for Stewart to protect Newton. The Panthers head into their bye before hosting the Cardinals in Week 8. Stewart will be an RB2/flex option.
Oct 16 - 5:33 PM

Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) is active for Week 6 against the Saints.

He's back after missing the previous three weeks. With Stewart back, Cameron Artis-Payne is a healthy scratch. Stewart needs to be started in season-long leagues as an RB2 in a delicious date at the Superdome.
Oct 16 - 12:05 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) will play in Sunday's Week 6 game against the Saints.

J-Stew's return was widely expected but Rapsheet's report makes it official. It shouldn't take Stewart long to dust off the cobwebs in a dream matchup Sunday against New Orleans. He'll return to RB2 status immediately. Cameron Artis-Payne and Fozzy Whittaker won't be relevant in fantasy with Stewart back in the workhorse role.
