2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Nov-17-2015 by Shawn Childs
Update (11/17): Stewart started off predictably slow this season. Through the first four weeks he maxed out at 62 yards and didn't score a touchdown. However, he's really turned it around since then. Since October 18 (five games), he as seen at least 20 carries in every single game. He's averaged 88.4 yards per game and has punched in four TDs. The volume and blocking is there, nevertheless, you have to fear injury with such a heavy workload.
Stewart is coming off his best season since 2009 as he gained 990 yards from scrimmage in just 13 games (eight starts). However, yes, he missed three games with a knee injury and has missed 20 games over the past three years. Without DeAngelo Williams in the mix, the Panthers' backfield is Stewart's to own. Considering the poor offensive line, Jonathan ran for an impressive 4.6 yards per carry last season. The rest of Carolina's RBs averaged only 3.51 YPC. Jonathan was beastly down the stretch, taking 116 carries for 593 yards and two scores in the final six contests (including the playoffs). Stewart averaged better than 20 touches per game during this stretch. From 2008 through 2009, Jonathan tallied 20 TDs in 32 games. Stewart has talent; he just struggles with injuries. At least 250 touches should be within reach this fall. I expect 1,300 yards, 40 catches and eight or more scores from him. Stewart has a high-end RB2 opportunity and a favorable ADP (60) as the 26th RB selected in the early draft season. Just make sure you handcuff him.

|13.08||#28 World Ranked - Probing for upside here. J-Stew is hard to trust, but in round 13, if he's truly healthy and able to contribute to what looks like a run heavy offense he could provide depth for me.|
