Rivera: Panthers RBs Williams, Stewart need more touches
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ron Rivera emphasized after the Thursday night loss to New Orleans that Panthers backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart need more touches going forward. The game marked the first time all season the pair shared the backfield.

Both carried eight times with Stewart earning 40 yards to 20 for Williams, who added a 30-yard gain on a screen pass. Rivera was unhappy with that distribution.

"It's good to have them back there," Rivera told the team website. "We are going to have to continue to find more and more chances to use them, more and more situations where we have to put the ball in their hands. They showed today that they deserve to have the ball in their hands more, and we are going to have to work on that. We have to ... take some pressure off the quarterback."

Quarterback Cam Newton did not respond well to pressure against New Orleans, completing just 10 of 28 passes.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart leads the way Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart led the club in rushing Thursday against the Saints.

Stewart picked up 46 yards on eight carries. He received the same number of carries as DeAngelo Williams, but outperformed him on the ground by 26 yards. Stewart, however, was not targeted in the passing game. 

He'll look for more Week 10 against the Eagles.

Ron Rivera says RB DeAngelo Williams will start Thursday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams looked good in Tuesday's practice and will start Thursday against the Saints, coach Ron Rivera told NFL Network. Williams missed the past four games with an ankle injury.

He'll split the workload with Jonathan Stewart, who rushed 16 times for 79 yards and caught three passes for 15 yards Sunday against the Seahawks.

Steer clear of Panthers backfield timeshare
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart has had no competition for carries over the last few weeks, but that could change in Week 9 against the Saints.

Fellow back DeAngelo Williams has been spotted on the practice field in the run up to the game, and is expected to be back in time for Thursday's game. That complicates things for Stewart, who has been decent, but unspectacular in two games as the featured back, scoring 14 combined Fantasy points.

Williams might be eased back into action, but he will almost certainly cut into Stewart's playing time anyways. Stewart hasn't exactly blown us away anyways, so any hope for him to be a viable Fantasy option rested on his getting a lot of work. Even against a middle-of-the-pack Saints rush defense, neither player makes much sense as anything more than a desperate play for Week 9.

Jonathan Stewart's role not in doubt
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart showed a bit more life in Week 8, and he did so against a tough matchup in a loss to the Seahawks Sunday.

Stewart ran for a season-high 79 yards on 16 carries, and averaged 4.9 yards per carry as result. He added three receptions for 15 yards, in what was by far his best performance of the season. And, the better news for Fantasy owners is, he was the only running back on the team to even touch the ball more than once, a good indication of what his role is on this team.

Until DeAngelo Williams can return from his ankle injury, Williams is the unquestioned No. 1 option in the team's running game. Though he is no longer the dynamic playmaker he was in his younger days, running backs with no competition for their role are hard to find in today's NFL. If he keeps getting 15-plus touches, Stewart probably belongs in most Fantasy lineups as a low-end running back or flex option. v
