Fantasy Football Running Backs: #13 Jonathan Stewart – Carolina Panthers

There really may not be a more underrated Fantasy Football running back that Jonathan Stewart.  Injuries, split carries, and simply being overshadowed by Cam Newton will get a lot of owners to pass on Stewart early on.

Featured Back:  Despite all the hype around Cam Newton, the truth is that the Panthers are very much a running team.  Jonathan Stewart is the feature back in that running game, so he will get a lot of opportunities to rack up points for you.

Hurdles:  Cam Newton isn’t the biggest concern for fantasy owners of Jonathan Stewart.  Neither are injuries.  The real concern is the presence of Mike Tolbert, the single biggest touchdown poacher in the NFL.  Stewart will get you points, but there will be some left on the board.

Draft Value – 4th Round:  The hurdles I just mentioned for Stewart are very real, and that’s why you shouldn’t take him before the fourth round.  He will still get you some solid points over the course of the season, but don’t expect him to be your primary guy.
