Shark Bites

Panthers HC Ron Rivera on Thursday ruled out RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) for this weekend's game against the Falcons. The fact that he was ruled out so early in the week is a good sign that he's not close to a return. Carolina has a Week 7 bye, and it's possible Stewart is held out through then. Cameron Artis-Payne operated as Carolina's lead back last week and is the backfield's best fantasy bet this week. Atlanta has allowed 4.8 yards per carry to RBs.

The Giants have placed RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) on IR. This is just about the end for the 31-year-old. RB Wayne Gallman had already emerged as the handcuff to Saquon Barkley.

The Giants have reached a 2-year agreement with RB Jonathan Stewart. The former Panther fell off to 3.8 and then 3.4 yards per carry over the past 2 years, while catching just 8 passes each season. Stewart is well past his prime and joining an offense that still has O-line questions to answer. It's tough to like him at all in fantasy football. We'll see how early the team drafts backfield competition.

The Panthers have released RB Jonathan Stewart. He turns 31 in about a month and averaged a career-worst 3.4 yards per carry this past season. If he earns a role elsewhere in 2018, it'll be primarily as a short-yardage and goal-line specialist. Carolina, meanwhile, is left with Fozzy Whittaker and Cameron Artis-Payne behind Christian McCaffrey, who averaged 3.7 yards per carry on 117 attempts as a rookie. McCaffrey's rushing volume should grow this coming season, but the Panthers might also add another back behind him.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (back) put in a full practice on Thursday. He was a surprise inactive after his back tightened up last weekend but is on track to play against the Saints on Sunday. Stewart totaled 23 carries for 102 yards (4.4 YPC) in 2 regular-season games vs. New Orleans.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart is inactive for today's game against the Falcons after his back tightened up on him this morning, according to the team's official website. The report adds that Carolina "will likely split carries" between Christian McCaffrey and Cameron Artis-Payne. McCaffrey will obviously dominate the pass-catching work.
