2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Jonathan Stewart, RB, Carolina Panthers

2010 Stats
770 rush yds.
2 rush TDs
8 rec. / 103 yds.
1 rec. TDs
2011 Projected
875 rush yds.
7 rush TDs
12 rec. / 150 yds.
0 rec. TDs

After a tremendous 2009 season, where Stewart rushed for 1,133 yards and scored 11 touchdowns (10 rushing, 1 receiving), he followed that up with a dud. Stewart struggled last year on a bad team and played through a lingering back injury. He finished 2010 with 873 total yards and three touchdowns (2 rushing, 1 receiving). Despite his lackluster stats, Stewart did come on at the end of last year. In the season's final six games, Stewart became the focal point of the Panthers offense, rushing for 562 yards and a touchdown during that stretch. When healthy, Stewart has proven he can be a dynamic NFL running back. He will share the carries in Carolina with DeAngelo Williams.
