Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart suffered no setbacks in the team's Week 4 loss to Atlanta. We break down the fantasy implications.

Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart suffered no setbacks in Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons, coach Ron Rivera said on Monday. Stewart had missed two of the first three games for the Panthers this season because of ankle and toe injuries. He rushed for 40 yards on 10 carries against Atlanta. Overall, Carolina ran the ball 35 times for 199 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Stewart was part of a very good rushing performance by Carolina but not a big enough part of it to excite fantasy owners. Quarterback Cam Newton continues to be the team's best rusher and Stewart is still splitting carries with DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert. Stewart and Williams are No. 3 running backs or flex plays until one of them becomes to the go-to option for the Panthers.
