Jonathan Stewart, Carolina Panthers

Baller Move: Add in Deeper Leagues

Analysis: The Panthers have a running back committee in their backfield, as Stewart is getting work along with DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert. None of the RBs had a great game in Week 10, but Stewart had 22 snaps while Williams only played 20. He was given 13 carries against a tough San Francisco defense, and managed only 41 yards. But Stewart is the most talented running back on this team, and Williams was only given 8 carries on the day. This is a good sign, and hopefully the Panthers will continue to get Stewart more touches than any other RB. If Williams were to go down with an injury, Stewart would become a solid FLEX/RB2 play on a weekly basis. If you’re looking for a decent running back off the Week 11 waiver wire, then pickup Stewart. He’s still only 21% owned in Yahoo leagues, and has a tasty matchup with a weak Patriots rush defense in Week 11.
