Panthers RB Cameron Artis-Payne will Start in Week 3

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera confirmed on Friday morning that running back Jonathan Stewart, hamstring, will miss Sunday's game and Cameron Artis-Payne will start in his place. Artis-Payne will be the first running back out on the field when the Panthers take on the Minnesota Vikings, but Rivera indicated he will share an equal amount of reps with Fozzy Whittaker.

Given it will be a backfield with divided carries and Carolina faces a stout Vikings' defense, Artis-Payne should be off the radar in DFS this week and is a low-end RB3 in season-long leagues.
