Baller Move: Add in Deep PPR Leagues
Analysis: Although Jonathan Stewart returned from his multi-week injury yesterday, Tolbert was still involved in the Carolina running back scheme. DeAngelo Williams did not not play particularly well this week, and the Panthers want to try and keep Stewart healthy for the remainder of their playoff-bound season. So Tolbert will continue to be involved in the running game, especially since he continues to be effective. Yesterday Tolbert only had 24 yards on 6 rushing attempts, but also added in a touchdown (which Williams could not convert on) and had 3 catches for 13 yards. Overall that equaled 12.70 points in PPR leagues, and 2 weeks ago Tolbert had 16.40 points in PPR leagues. Not too shabby for a bye-week fill in or a deep league FLEX play. If you’re looking for some running back help on the week 10 waiver wire, you can add Tolbert to your fantasy team especially if it’s a PPR league. While he probably won’t win you any leagues single-handedly, it looks like he will continue to get consistent touches and provide decent production for fantasy owners.
