Panthers get minor work from several role players Week 7
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Panthers received some minor contributions from several role players in a Week 7 loss to he Packers. 

Chris Ogbonnaya worked behind Jonathan Stewart and only rushed for 12 yards on four carries. He was targeted once in the passing game and was held without a grab. Brandon Williams caught two of three targets for 22 yards. Ed Dickson took a step back and was held without a catch despite being targeted once in a 38-17 defeat.

Panthers without Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams Week 6
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (knee) joined running back DeAngelo Williams (ankle) on the sidelines for Week 6 against the Bengals, as Stewart was ruled inactive Sunday after Williams was already ruled out Friday.

Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya are expected to split the reps at running back with Stewart and Williams sidelined. However, Whittaker is expected to start, according to The Charlotte Observer. Reaves was cleared to play after being listed as probable due to a hip injury.

Panthers backs unlikely to take advantage of matchup
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Bengals have had some trouble against the run this season, but the Panthers may not be able to take advantage of that, with Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams still dealing with injuries.

Darrin Reaves and Chris Ogbonnaya look likely to split the load again in Week 6, as they did in Week 5. Unfortunately, the duo was awfully unproductive against the Bears, totaling 59 yards on 19 carries and leaving little reason for optimism heading into Sunday's game.

The Bengals are allowing 5.0 yards per carry to running backs and were just gashed for 29 Fantasy points by the Patriots' duo. Even with that in mind, it is hard for any Fantasy owner to consider Reaves or Ogbonnaya much more than an injury replacement option for Week 6.

Hard to find value in Panthers backfield
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Panthers had to go deep into their depth chart at running back in Week 5 against the Bears, and it does not look like they unearthed any gems for Fantasy owners.

Darrin Reaves got the bulk of the work, as expected, but he didn't do much with it. He rushed the ball 11 times for just 35 yards, while adding one reception out of the backfield. Chris Ogbonnaya surprisingly received the backup work and found the end zone, but was unproductive all-around, racking up just 24 yards total. Fozzy Whittaker did not touch the ball in the loss.

From a Fantasy perspective, you are probably better off just waiting for Jonathan Stewart or DeAngelo Williams to come back than adding any of these guys at this point. The Panthers have had trouble getting anything going with the running game this season, and it doesn't seem like Reaves, Ogbonnaya or Whittaker are going to get them out of their slump.

Panthers new RB Chris Ogbonnaya contributes to victory
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Panthers running back Chris Ogbonnaya, who was signed by the team Monday, scored his first touchdown six days later.

Ogbonnaya did little else besides plunge in from one yard out to tie the game midway through the third quarter. He finished with 24 yards on eight carries.

It remains to be seen if he continues getting reps when Carolina plays at Cincinnati in Week 6.
