Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart not concerned about his hamstring

Jonathan Stewart @Jonathanstewar1 told reporters at Saturday's training camp, "It's definitely frustrating, but it's nothing that I'm really too concerned about considering my past and my history with my ankles." The 27 year old running back hasn't played 16 games in a season since 2011. Stewart says it's frustrating and the only thing he wants to do is contribute. The Panther's running back feels as though recovering from the torn hamstring injury won't be problem. Stewart is expected to miss 2-4 weeks, but will be back for the regular season.

Fantasy Analysis:

Stewart hasn't been a relevant fantasy running back since the 2011 season. An accumulation of injuries and the sharing of touches with DeAngelo Williams @DeAngeloRB in the backfield does not bode well for Stewart. Some may see Stewart as a decent change-of-pace back when he's healthy, but he should only be considered in deeper leagues. With the new re-worked offensive line and the lack of passing options for Cam Newton @CameronNewton, the Panther's running game may suffer dramatically. If you're considered a Panthers running back, think again.
