Jonathan Stewart returned from his ankle injury with flying colors by rushing for 51 yards on 11 carries and hauling in a 17-yard TD reception.
Analysis: A 4.6 YPC is a good way to start the season even though he had a better average last year. The Panthers have some of the best run blocking in the league and Stewart should be able to hold some low-end RB2 value as long as he gets 12 touches. Those touches could go up, but odds are that the Panthers will use their aerial attack against the pathetic Giants pass D. The Oregon Duck should definitely be owned, but he's not a must-start by any stretch.
