FF Today's Take:Artis-Payne and Fozzy Whittaker should handle the majority of running back carries with a little Mike Tolbert mixed in. Artis-Payne has some FLEX appeal but is difficult to trust given the committee approach plus Cam Newton's rushing presence around the goaline.
Jonathan Stewart expected to miss 1-2 weeks-- Mon Sep 19 12:45 pm --
Panthers coach Ron Rivera indicates Jonathan Stewartís hamstring injury will cause the team to go with a backfield by committee, but left open the possibility of signing a free agent back if Stewart is out an extended period.(Charlotte Observer)
FF Today's Take:Stewart suffered a hamstring in Week 2 and will likely miss a game or two according to head coach Ron Rivera. Fozzy Whittaker replaced Stewart and rushed for 100 yards on 16 carries. Cameron Artis-Payne has been a healthy scratch the last two weeks but will likely be active for Week 3 and form a committee with Whittaker.
