Jonathan Stewart injury update: Missed practice, fantasy value not looking bright for Week 14

US PRESSWIRE

If Stewart misses another start, it will provide additional opportunity for DeAngelo Williams. We break down the fantasy implications.

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (ankle) missed practice on Wednesday, making it more likely that he will miss his second straight game. Stewart has already missed three games this year with injury as the Panthers have struggled to run the ball all season.

DeAngelo Williams is in line for another start. Williams ran the ball 12 times on Sunday for 67 yards and has 359 yards and three touchdowns on the season without missing any time. Stewart has 93 carries for 336 yards and one touchdown in addition to 17 catches. The Panthers take on the Falcons in Week 14.

Fantasy Take: Carolina has dropped dramatically from the best rushing team in 2011 to one of the worst. They average 4.2 yards per carry but most of that comes from quarterback Cam Newton. Williams (3.5 YPC), Stewart (3.6) and Mike Tolbert (2.8) have all struggled. If Stewart is out however, Williams becomes a low-end RB2.
