Baller Move: Add in Deep Leagues
Analysis: Tolbert is going to get some love again in week nine’s waiver wire, as he just keeps producing as the third-down running back for the Panthers. In PPR leagues, Tolbert put up a solid 16.40 points last week. He also racked up 9.60 points in week 7 and 18.70 in week 6. Although he isn’t the starting running back for the Panthers, he has been getting some goal line carries which are translating into TDs for his fantasy owners. He is also the full time third-down running back for Carolina, so he will continue to get catches out of the backfield along with about 8-10 rushing attempts per game. Jonathan Stewart is expected back at some point, which may reduce Tolbert’s role in the offense, but nothing is guaranteed right now. If you are hurting for a running back, or are in a deeper league, add Tolbert off the week 9 waiver wire as a solid matchup against the fading Falcons awaits.
