Bills RB Mike Tolbert (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. He's averaged 6.9 touches per game this season, so his absence gives RB LeSean McCoy a bit of a boost.

The Bills have signed RB Mike Tolbert. The notorious TD vulture has 45 scores on 833 career touches, although just 5 of those TDs have come over the last 3 seasons. Tolbert is 31 now and certainly won't be a 2017 fantasy option in Buffalo. But he could prove frustrating to LeSean McCoy owners.

ESPN's David Newton reports that Panthers RB Mike Tolbert will factor into the team's plan to replace injured WR Kelvin Benjamin. That will include lining Tolbert up wide at times to run pass routes. Obviously, Tolbert isn't going to shift to WR full time, and Newton mentions his ability to line up at various spots, including at TE. But Tolbert's certainly capable of surprising receiving numbers, as he proved with 54 receptions for the Chargers in 2011. For his career, Tolbert has averaged an impressive 8.9 yards per catch and scored 8 receiving TDs. This guy's probably going to wind up with more fantasy starter weeks than just about anyone expects. We see him -- rather than rookie Cameron Artis-Payne -- as the 2nd Panthers RB to own behind Jonathan Stewart this year.

Panthers RB Mike Tolbert (leg) is set to return for Sunday's game against the Vikings.  He's been out since Week 3 and totaled just 22 touches for 69 scoreless yards in 3 outings.  Tolbert isn't a fantasy asset, but he makes Carolina's backfield even messier.

Panthers RB Mike Tolbert missed a good chunk of August with hamstring trouble.  But he practiced all week and is listed as probable for Sunday’s season opener against the Seahawks.  Tolbert will operate as the #2 RB behind DeAngelo Williams.  He could see 8-12 touches.  But he’s not a recommended fantasy play against 1 of the league’s top defenses.
