Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart is the healthiest he's been since 2011

Toe surgery, a torn knee ligament, multiple ankle surgeries, they have all been a part of Jonathan Stewart @Jonathanstewar1's life over the past couple of years. Since the start of the 2012 season, he has missed more games than he has played in. But it's a new year, and Stewart is getting off on a good foot, literally.
"Very excited about having Jonathan on the field," Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday. "He's healthy again. He's moving the way we need him to move. I like what we're getting out of him.
"Even Jonathan is saying this is the first time he's been healthy [in a while]. So that's a good thing."

Fantasy Analysis:

The Panthers need Stewart to stay on the field and be a major part of their run-heavy offense along with DeAngelo Williams @DeAngeloRB, Mike Tolbert as well as quarterback Cam Newton once he recovers from his own ankle surgery. Stewart is only 27 and should have a long future in this league ahead of him. But this Panthers ground attack is going to be split three or four different ways, severely limiting his fantasy value. Stewart is an RB5.
