Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Two carries in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart carried the ball twice for one yard in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Stewart appeared in just five offensive snaps, the same amount as fellow backup Wayne Gallman, for the Giants on Sunday night, and while he out-carried Gallman two to one, Gallman recorded one catch for 11 yards out of the backfield. Regardless, given the high usage of rookie star Saquon Barkley, there doesn't appear to be much of a role for either Stewart or Gallman in the backfield at this time.

Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Joined by No. 2 overall pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart is part of a New York backfield that now includes No. 2 overall draft pick Saquon Barkley, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official website reports.

Stewart knew this was possible -- perhaps even likely -- when he signed with New York in mid-March on a two-year, $6.9 million contract that includes $2.95 million guaranteed, per OverTheCap. The Giants may envision Stewart serving as a mentor to Barkley, but it still seems like an unnecessarily large contract for a 31-year-old running back coming off a season in which he averaged 3.3 yards on 198 carries. What's more, 2017 fourth-round pick Wayne Gallman looked the part of a solid contributor during his rookie season, averaging 4.3 yards on 111 totes. Barkley instantly becomes the best pass-catcher and pure runner in this backfield by a wide margin, but it isn't out of the question that Stewart and/or Gallman also find roles. Paul Perkins likely was headed for the roster bubble even before he suffered a torn pectoral while working out in the offseason.

Giants' Jonathan Stewart: Lands deal with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants signed Stewart on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After he was released by the Panthers on Feb. 28, Stewart initially drew interest from the Seahawks and Lions, but the Giants will end up with his services in 2018. The soon-to-be 31-year-old is the Panthers' all-time leading rusher with 7,318 yards, which he churned out at a clip of 4.3 YPC. At the very least, the Giants will utilize Stewart on first and second downs this season, but Wayne Gallman and potentially a 2018 draft pick will eat into his overall volume.

Jonathan Stewart: Visiting with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart and DeMarco Murray are scheduled for visits with the Lions on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With Ameer Abdullah entering the final year of his rookie contract on the heels of a season in which he was limited to 3.3 yards per carry, Detroit is one of the obvious destinations for free-agent running backs. Stewart turns 31 next week and managed only 3.4 yards per carry for the Panthers last season, but he did score five times in his final five games, including a 103-yard, three-score effort against the stingy Minnesota defense in Week 14. He'd be part of a committee in Detroit, where Theo Riddick is locked in on passing downs and Abdullah still figures to compete for carries.

Jonathan Stewart: On Seattle's radar
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart, who was released by the Panthers last week, is slated to visit the Seahawks, the Seattle Times reports.

Stewart, who turns 31 on March 21, recorded a career-low 3.4 yards per carry average in 2017, while logging 198 rushing attempts for 680 yards and six TDs in 15 games. Meanwhile, he was largely an afterthought in the Carolina passing attack, catching eight passes for the second season in a row. With 2017 first-rounder Christian McCaffrey now heading the Panthers backfield, Stewart will look to find a role elsewhere. Given that he's a native of Washington state and the Seahawks seem destined to part ways with Eddie Lacy, Stewart could be a decent complementary fit in a Seattle ground attack that cycled through ballcarriers last season.
