Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is questionable for Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. We break down the fantasy implications.

Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is listed as questionable for Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. Stewart missed the opening game of the season because of ankle injury, but would seem to be in better position to play after returning to practice this week. DeAngelo Williams would again get the bulk of the carries if Stewart does not play.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should probably not rush Stewart back into their lineups for this week, even though he has been practicing. Williams is likely to get most of the work as Stewart gets acclimated. We're probably a week or two away from really knowing how the carries will be split once both are healthy. Williams and Stewart are No. 3 running backs or flex plays this week if both are active on Sunday.
