Panthers | Cam Newton and offense struggling

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton was in for five series in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 15, and he led the team to two field goals and three punts. In eight series over the first two preseason games, Newton has led just one touchdown drive, and that came on a short field (18 yards) after an interception. "We kicked two field goals (Thursday), but I want touchdowns," head coach Ron Rivera said Friday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners shouldn't be too terribly concerned, at least not yet. The Panthers have been starting slowly under Rivera the past couple of years, but Newton remains a legitimate No. 1 fantasy option heading into the regular season. If you drafted him, remember, these are just preseason games. If you're thinking about drafting him, remember, these are just preseason games.
