2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Tolbert was an unexpected fantasy star in 2010 and he followed that up with another solid season in 2011, averaging more than 10 FPts/G for the second consecutive year. In 2010, he ran for a career-high 735 yards and piled up 11 rushing touchdowns. Last season, he took a slightly different path, producing 490 rushing yards, 433 receiving yards and ten total touchdowns (two through the air). While Tolbert was a solid producer in San Diego, he faces an uncertain future in a crowded Panthers backfield. Tolbert is clearly the third most talented running back on the roster behind Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams but he is a better short yardage runner than either of those players. Unfortunately for Tolbert, the Panthers main threat on short yardage rushing players is quarterback Cam Newton. While Tolbert excelled as a receiver with the Chargers, he will likely split that role with Stewart in 2012. Add it all up and Tolbert shapes up as a player who will likely put a damper on the fantasy production of Stewart and Williams but not produce enough to make him worth owning in the majority of leagues.

Injury Panthers' backfield in shambles     -- Mon Sep 22 4:45 pm --

Stewart to be reevaluated on Friday, Tolbert out Week 4
Coach Ron Rivera is optimistic that DeAngelo Williams will return from a hamstring injury to play versus the Baltimore Ravens this week, but the Carolina Panthers' backfield woes aren't going away. Jonathan Stewart will be held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday with a severely sprained knee. Mike Tolbert, sporting crutches and a knee brace, will miss Sunday's game with a hairline fracture in his right leg. The fullback is week to week, per Rivera. (

FF Today's Take: In the event that Williams cannot go, owners may need to consider Darrin Reaves, who was elevated from the practice squad over the weekend. The bigger problem, however, is that Cam Newton may not be healthy enough and the offensive line may not be good enough this year to mask the injuries that the Panthers overcame last year.
