2016 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


The days of hoping for upside from Stewart looks to be numbered. He set career high in rushing attempts (242) leading to his second best season in the NFL as far as rushing yards (989). Jon averaged 4.1 yards per rush as his offensive line isn't an edge. On the passing side, he only had 16 catches for 99 yards with a TD. His TD production (7) has never approached his success in 2008 (10) and 2009 (11). Jon's regular season was cut short after Week 13 due to a left foot injury that led to three missed games. Stewart aggravated his foot injury in the Super Bowl leading to continued discomfort in the offseason. The Panthers expect him to be healthy by the start of the season, but they will limit his work over the summer to keep him on a positive direction. He averaged almost 20 touches per game last year, which is a substantial opportunity. I don't trust him at all due to his history of foot issues. Last year the Panthers' RBs had 390 rushes for 1666 yards and 10 TDs plus 52 catches for 356 yards and four TDs on 63 targets. If healthy, Stewart has a chance at 1100+ yards with mid-tier TDs and minimal action in the passing game.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
5.12 Brandon Marianne - Jonathan Stewart will never be a sexy pick. No one will ooo-and-ahh, but he averaged 18.6 carries per game last year and is markedly better than his competition: Cameron Artis-Payne and Fozzy Whittaker. This team likes to run. Only concern is his foot, but it?s early in the off-season.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
6.03 Scout Fantasy - Armando Marsal - Not thrilled about this pick, but he’s one of the few bellcows left in the game. Limited TD upside and doesn’t catch many passes.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
7.05 Cowboys HQ - Matthew Postins - Not thrilling, but nice. Would it have been too much to ask for either Matt Jones or Jay Ajayi to fall to me here? But at least Stewart is consistent and plays in an offense where you know he's going to get the football.
