Panthers Team Depth and Surprise Cuts

Jonathan Stewart
Going into training camp, General Manager Dave Gettleman and Head Coach Ron Rivera will hope to fill all roster needs to have a productive camp. If that means going longer or shorter at certain positions, they will have to make those tough decisions for the benefit of the team. Because the Panthers are such a young team, Rivera doesn’t have to worry tremendously about managing veteran reps to save their bodies for the season. Let’s be honest, no one wants to see a star player go down to injury before seeing any real game action. Injuries happen, however, especially to Jonathan Stewart (injured already), and Carolina’s front office needs to be prepared for any and everything.  The will also have to mine a few unknown gems to fill a few needs offensively and defensively.

Injuries Mount in Carolina Panthers' Backfield

Every year it seems like the Carolina Panthers lose at least one guy for the year early in mini-camp. Last year around this time, it was LG Amini Silatolu. This year, it's rookie RB Tyler Gaffney.

Gaffney was drafted to compete with Kenjon Barner for snaps behind Jonathan Stewart and an aging DeAngelo Williams, but Gaffney isn't the only Carolina RB that's ailing.

Who is the other ailing RB you may ask? Do I really have to tell you?

Yep, it's Stewie. Jonathan Stewart could miss two to four weeks, according to early reports. I hate to say it, but isn't it just downright strange that he keeps getting dinged up....AFTER he got paid?

Argument for Single RB Fantasy Leagues

Fantasy Football has had a massive spike in popularity in recent years, and the game has been evolving quickly.  The NFL has put less emphasis on workhorse running backs, and committees have become the new norm.  In response to this, Points Per Reception (PPR) leagues have become more and more common, and many people, including myself, feel that it is a more balanced scoring system.  But in order to form a more perfect scoring system, the cool new thing in fantasy is the Single Running Back, Two Flex, PPR league, like the one here at Carolina Cat Chronicles.
