Panthers waived RB Darrin Reaves.
With Jonathan Stewart running like his old self and DeAngelo Williams (ankle) back, there's no room for Reaves. The UDFA didn't exactly impress in his big chance, rushing 32 times for 77 yards (2.40 YPC) with no touchdowns. Reaves didn't look any better than the likes of Fozzy Whittaker or Chris Ogbonnaya.

Date:

Darrin Reaves was held without a touch in the Panthers' Week 7 loss to the Packers.

Reaves was a distant No. 3 behind Jonathan Stewart and Chris Ogbonnaya. The jig is up in 12-14 team leagues.
Oct 19 - 6:51 PM

Darrin Reaves (calf) is questionable for Week 7 at Green Bay.

With Jonathan Stewart (knee) returning, Reaves can safely be dropped in 12- and 14-team leagues if you hadn't already done the transaction by now.
Oct 17 - 1:07 PM

Darrin Reaves (calf) is not practicing Thursday.

It's a downgrade from Wednesday, when Reaves was a limited participant. Fozzy Whittaker (quad) also missed practice again, leaving Jonathan Stewart and Chris Ogbonnaya as the clear-cut top-two backs heading into Sunday's game at Green Bay.
Oct 16 - 11:54 AM

Darrin Reaves (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Reaves suffered the injury in Sunday's tie with the Bengals. He should be relegated to backup duties this week with Jonathan Stewart on track to return.
Oct 15 - 3:45 PM

Darrin Reaves rushed eight times for 15 yards in the Panthers' Week 6 tie with the Bengals.

Fozzy Whittaker got the start in the backfield, with Reaves acting as the No. 2. Chris Ogbonnaya didn't register a touch. Neither Reaves nor Whittaker did much, and it was the Cam Newton show for Carolina. Cam piled up 107 yards and a score on 17 carries. Reaves isn't worth owning in 12- or 14-team leagues.
Oct 12 - 5:29 PM

Darrin Reaves (hip) is probable for Week 6 against the Bengals.

Reaves could be in line for another start with Jonathan Stewart (knee) a game-time decision, but will be no more than a low-upside RB3/FLEX. Stewart will get the majority of the carries if he plays.
Oct 10 - 6:06 PM

Darrin Reaves (hip) returned to Panthers practice Thursday, getting in a full session.

It looks like Wednesday was just a day of rest for an undrafted rookie who could be in line for another start if Jonathan Stewart (knee) isn't ready for Week 6. If J-Stew indeed sits, Reaves will be a low-upside RB3/FLEX.
Oct 9 - 6:33 PM

Darrin Reaves (hip) did not practice Wednesday.

Another one goes down. Panthers running backs are dropping like flies with DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Jonathan Stewart (knee) still sidelined. Reaves strained his hip last Sunday when he totaled 51 yards on 16 touches. If Reaves can't play, Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker would man the backfield.
Oct 8 - 3:41 PM

Darrin Reaves rushed 11 times for 35 yards and caught one pass for 16 yards against the Bears Week 5.

Reaves earned the start with DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Jonathan Stewart (knee) sidelined. He lost out on a goal-line carry to Chris Ogbonnaya that could have saved his fantasy day. Reaves was not great, but did nothing to threaten his status as the lead back if Williams and Stewart remain on the sidelines.
Oct 5 - 5:02 PM

With DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Jonathan Stewart (knee) sidelined, Darrin Reaves will be the starting running back for the Panthers Week 5.

Reaves starting status does not mean he will definitely get the majority of the work. The Panthers plan to employ a "hot hand" approach. Fozzy Whittaker will get some early work, and could keep Reaves off the field if he is running well. Reaves is a weak RB4/FLEX play against Chicago's middling run defense.
Oct 5 - 11:45 AM

Coach Ron Rivera said Friday the Panthers will use a "hot hand" approach at running back in Week 5 against the Bears.

Rivera promised Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker, and Chris Ogbonnaya will all get early-game carries against Chicago. The Panthers will ride whichever back shows he's running the best. Explosive UDFA Reaves remains the best bet for carries, but there are no guarantees on his workload, snaps, or production. He's a high-risk flex option with some upside against Chicago's leaky run defense.
Oct 3 - 1:00 PM

Panthers coach Ron Rivera expects a three-man rotation at running back between Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya against the Bears.

We'd expect all three players to get touches as Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert sit out, but Reaves should lead the committee. The only player not to be a member of the Browns' historically bad 2013 running back corps, Reaves is also the only one of the trio to notch a touch for the Panthers this season. Reaves comes with obvious risk, but he's not a bad dart throw at FLEX.
Oct 2 - 3:38 PM

Coach Ron Rivera said Darrin Reaves is currently the Panthers' starting running back.

With DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Mike Tolbert (leg) out and Jonathan Stewart (knee) still working his way back, Reaves is next up on the depth chart, followed by Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker. Reaves (5-foot-7, 209) is an undrafted rookie out of UAB, but was a favorite by some in the draft community. For owners in a bye-week or injury crunch, Reaves is worth a grab for Week 5 against the Bears. He won't be the full-time ball carrier, but should lead a committee attack.
Oct 1 - 4:01 PM

Panthers RB Darrin Reaves managed 26 yards on 12 carries and caught 3-of-5 targets for 11 yards in Carolina's Week 4 loss to Baltimore.

An undrafted rookie out of UAB, Reaves took over as Carolina's primary back after DeAngelo Williams' second-quarter ankle injury. Williams never returned, joining Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert on the shelf in a depleted Panthers backfield. Although he ran tentatively in his first extended game experience, Reaves is worth a look in 12- and 14-team leagues based strictly on opportunity. He ran a 4.54 forty with an explosive 10-foot-3 broad jump at 5-foot-7, 209 at Alabama-Birmingham's March Pro Day.
