Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
SUNDAY MORNING UPDATE: DeAngelo Williams (hand) is INACTIVE for Week 16. Stewart will start and get the bulk of the touches against a Cleveland Browns defense that surrendered an average of 115 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown per game to opposing running backs since Week 12. Since opposing defenses must account for Cam Newton's scrambling ability, Stewart should find more running room than he did last week when Derek Anderson started.
Once considered a rising star in the fantasy realm of running backs Stewart has seen his career derailed by lower body injuries that have caused him to miss 17 games in the last two years. He underwent surgery on both of his ankles prior to last season and then suffered an MCL tear in Week 14. While still only 27 years old, the injuries have taken their toll on Stewart as he has averaged only 3.6 yards per carry over his past 15 games. He is stuck in a running back by committee with DeAngelo Williams on a team where quarterback Cam Newton and fullback Mike Tolbert vulture the majority of rushing touchdowns. Don't get carried away by the reports that Stewart looked great during spring practices, as we'll need to see him stay healthy once the hitting starts.
At some point during the next 15 months, the Carolina Panthers must decide how much to pay defensive end Julius Peppers — or whether to pay him at all. Before the 2007 season it seemed Peppers was a slam dunk to receive a contract extension that ...
Luke is becoming an elite player. Cam is regressing. Hopefully Gettleman will eventually draft a real QB. He will likely replace Rivera at the end of the season and bring in his own coaching staff. I like this guy and think he will build us a great ...

Average Draft Position (ADP) Tracker
Round 4, Pick 6
Positives over 5 ypc and 12 total TDs places Stewart in the %16 position for 2009. There's no reason t.o think his role will be any less in 2010, and it could possibly even increase. Run oriented offense with a very good line in front of him. Negatives Obviously still in a timeshare, so role may vary week to week Draft Strategy Choice came down to Stewart or Pierre Thomas, and honestly could have gone either way.Liked Stewart's updide if Williams misses any time (Contributed by: feral)
Round 4, Pick 7
Positives On a team that is dedicated to the run and seems to be leaning on him to run more and more as he gets healthier and healthier. Can do all the things that Deangelo Williams can do, but at 2 rounds lower of a price. Negatives history of nagging injuries. uncertain as to how many touches he will get a game with the presence of DWill. Draft Strategy (Contributed by: bshazzar)
Round 3, Pick 4
Positives He is on probably the best running team in the NFL, has been nothing but productive, even in shared role. If D-will goes down, watch out. He will be a solid rb2 either way. Negatives RBBC. big time. however they both get theirs without a problem. nagging injuries could flare up anytime. Only caught 18 passes last year, this is a PPR league. Draft Strategy perhaps i reached, but the man-love is strong with this one. I wanted Charles but he went the pick right before me. (Contributed by: malone)
