Jonathan Stewart will likely play against Falcons, but fantasy prospects shaky

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Jonathan Stewart is probable for Sunday's game between the Carolina Panthers and the Atlanta Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jonathan Stewart will likely play Sunday's game between the Carolina Panthers and the Atlanta Falcons after being marked as probable on the Panthers' injury report Friday. Stewart was a full participant in practice Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: Stewart should give it a go against the Panthers, but whether he is 100 percent remains to be seen. He will also have to contend for carries, per usual, with DeAngelo Williams and quarterback Cam Newton. The Falcons' have been bad against the run this season, however, giving up 5.0 yards per carry. As long you understand the risk, Stewart could be worth Flex consideration this week if you're in a standard fantasy league.
