RotoWorld.com had an interesting post today about the Panthers, and how they divided their workload among their RB's. The stat came as something of a surprise to me, their stat is based upon the percentage of offensive snaps that each RB was on the field for last season, 42.7% for DeAngelo Williams, and 55.2% for Jonathan Stewart (in the top 12 of NFL RB's). I expected that their use would have been more balanced.
They believe (and I agree) that Tolbert may receive many of Stewart's short yardage carries, but that Williams snaps should remain about the same.
Who do you think will be the RB with the most offensive snaps in 2012? Note that if the Panthers chose to use Tolbert at FB on most plays, rather than replace him with a 3rd WR or TE on many plays, he might have more snaps than either Williams or Stewart.
Which RB do you think will lead the team in offensive snaps played in 2012?
