Stewart injured his ankle in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He missed last week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs and hasn't practiced all week. He is unlikely to play on Sunday. DeAngelo Williams will take over as the team's starting running back.
Fantasy Impact: Jonathan Stewart was expected to have a strong second half over the Panthers lead running back role. He has disappointed, however, and is now injured, giving him very little fantasy value.
Stewart is worth dropping at this point with the fantasy season in the balance. There should be better options on the waiver wire.
