Panthers | Cam Newton sheds weight

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton said he lost 12 pounds in the offseason, bringing him down from 255 pounds to 243. "It was just a personal goal that I set for myself. I'm not going to go into what it really meant because looking at my body from afar you really couldn't tell," Newton said. "Being that I lost the weight, nobody really could tell, either."

Fantasy Tip: After starting out slow last year, Newton turned things around in the second half and matured tremendously as a quarterback. With a stellar offense line at his disposal, expect Newton to continue getting better. The added dimension that he brings to the running game makes him even more valuable as a No. 1 fantasy QB.
