12/22/2013 5:27:00 PM
Description: Carolina running back DeAngelo Williams rushed for 67 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries Sunday against the Saints.
Insight: Apparently, Williams can only contribute to fantasy teams when Jonathan Stewart is out. He put up 235 yards from scrimmage and two scores the last two games with Stewart nursing a knee injury.
 
12/6/2013 2:50:00 PM
Description: Carolina running back DeAngelo Williams (quad) should be ready to go in Sunday's big matchup with New Orleans.
Insight: Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert will both play as well so the three-headed RBBC is back intact and none of them should be started by fantasy owners.
 
12/1/2013 12:05:00 PM
Description: Carolina running back DeAngelo Williams (quad) is inactive for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Insight: Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert will both play, but neither is more than a flex option in a week when all 32 teams are in action.
 
12/1/2013 10:05:00 AM
Description: According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Carolina running back DeAngelo Williams (quad) is "very doubtful" to play Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Insight: Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert will both play, but neither is more than a flex option in a week when all 32 teams are in action.

Insight: He's questionable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. Williams got nine touches for 51 yards and a score when he faced the Bucs in Week 8.
 
11/27/2013 4:57:00 PM
Description: Panthers running backs DeAngelo Williams (quad), Jonathan Stewart (ankle) and Mike Tolbert (knee) were all held out of practice Wednesday.
Insight: In four games since Jonathan Stewart returned to the lineup, Williams has rushed for just 133 yards on 37 carries. None of the three is a good fantasy option.
 
11/3/2013 5:49:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams found himself back in a three-way timeshare Sunday against the Falcons.
Insight: Jonathan Stewart made his season debut and had nine carries for 43 yards, while Williams took 13 handoffs for 42 yards. Mike Tolbert had six carries for 24 yards and a touchdown and Cam Newton also rushed for a score. Now that Stewart is back, Williams can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
 
11/1/2013 7:29:00 PM
Description: Carolina halfback DeAngelo Williams is expected to play Sunday against Atlanta. SOURCE: Jonathan Jones, Charlotte Observer
Insight: Williams missed a couple practices earlier in the week because of a quad injury but it looks like he'll be good to go. With Williams having to compete with Jonathan Stewart, Mike Tolbert and even Kenjon Barner for carries, he won't be a recommended fantasy play in Week 9.
 
10/30/2013 1:03:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams missed practice on Wednesday. SOURCE: Joe Person, Charlotte Observer
Insight: It's a little concerning that Williams still isn't practicing a week after suffering what was thought to be a pretty minor quad strain. He'll carry the questionable label into Week 9's matchup against Atlanta.
 
10/26/2013 7:24:00 PM
Description: Carolina halfback DeAngelo Williams should play next week against Miami despite suffering a quad injury Thursday at Tampa Bay. SOURCE: Charlotte Observer
Insight: Thursday night was somewhat of a breakthrough for Williams, who was finally able to score his first touchdown of the season. Mike Tolbert is still the Panthers' preferred goal line rusher but it's good to know Williams can punch it in too when given the opportunity.
 
9/22/2013 6:07:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has carried the ball 62 times in three weeks, including 23 times for 120 yards Sunday against the Giants.
Insight: Cam Newton and Mike Tolbert vulture most of the rushing scores so Williams is limited to being a flex option, but he should continue to get consistent carries while Jonathan Stewart is out.
 
8/28/2013 11:15:00 AM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams should get off to a good start this season with Jonathan Stewart on the PUP list for the first six weeks.
Insight: Williams rushed for 737 yards last season and finished better than he started. The lack of scores, because Cam Newton and big back Mike Tolbert get the goal line work, limits Williams' fantasy value.
 
12/23/2012 4:31:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams only had 19 yards on 10 carries and 29 yards on two catches Sunday against the Raiders.
Insight: Jonathan Stewart didn't play, which increased Williams' chances of putting up another useful performance, but his only contribution of the day, a 76-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, was called back due to a Steve Smith holding penalty.
 
12/22/2012 8:04:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams has finally turned into a somewhat useful fantasy running back again but that could end Sunday against the Raiders if Jonathan Stewart returns.
Insight: Williams ran for a season-high 93 yards last Sunday and also caught two passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. He had 112 total yards and a touchdown in Week 14 and 67 rushing yards in Week 13 but fantasy owners won't be able to rely on him despite the extremely favorable matchup if Stewart is active.
 
12/9/2012 6:28:00 PM
Description: Panthers' running back DeAngelo Williams only ran for 56 yards on 17 carries but caught a 53-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter Sunday against the Falcons.
Insight: Williams has been unreliable this season but he's obviously more useful when Jonathan Stewart is absent from the lineup.
 
11/30/2012 2:20:00 PM
Description: Panthers' running back DeAngelo Williams should see an increase in playing time with starter Jonathan Stewart likely to miss the game against Kansas City due to an ankle sprain.
Insight: Williams has only reached double-digit fantasy points in one game this season, back in Week 2. With quarterback Cam Newton stealing red zone rushing touchdowns, the Carolina backs are rarely worthy of a start in fantasy lineups and we can't recommend Williams even with Stewart sidelined.
 
11/7/2012 11:20:00 AM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams saw an increase in playing time against Washington from the previous week, leaving fantasy owners confused by Carolina's backfield situation.
Insight: Williams ran well, posting 37 yards and a touchdown on just six carries. The distribution of plays for the backfield was Jonathan Stewart 10 carries, Williams six and Mike Tolbert three rushing attempts. At this level it's tough to start any of the Panthers' running backs.
 
10/26/2012 10:27:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams could be dealt before next week's trading deadline. SOURCE: Michael Lombardi, NFL Network
Insight: Williams is expendable now that Jonathan Stewart has emerged as the team's every down back. The Panthers certainly wouldn't mind getting rid of his awful contract either (five years, $43 million). With that said, no deal is imminent and for now it looks like Williams will remain with Carolina.
 
Cold10/22/2012 12:47:00 PM
Description: Halfback DeAngelo Williams has carried the ball just eight times combined during Carolina's last two games.
Insight: Williams rushed the ball twice for four yards Sunday against the Cowboys, two weeks after running for just six yards on six carries in a loss to Seattle. Williams has now gone 17 games in a row without breaking the 100-yard barrier and with just 50 attempts on the season, we don't see the seven-year veteran having a breakout game any time soon.
 
9/20/2012 7:21:00 PM
Description: Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams will get another shot at being the lead back Thursday against the Giants with Jonathan Stewart officially inactive.
Insight: Williams rushed for negative-one yard on six carries in Week 1 with Stewart out but carried 14 times for 69 yards and a touchdown with Stewart active Sunday. He's a strong flex play against a Giants defense that has allowed 4.6 ypc to opposing rushers in the first two games, but we wouldn't recommend using him as your RB2 in leagues with no flex unless you don't possess a less risky option.
