Panthers | Offense struggling

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and the first-team offense has scored only one touchdown in eight series over two preseason games so far. The one touchdown came on a short field (18 yards) after a defensive interception. Their other seven series have produced four punts, two field goals and an interception. Newton completed only eight of his 17 passes for 112 yards Thursday, Aug. 15. RB DeAngelo Williams had 12 carries for 39 yards, but offensive coordinator Mike Shula kept his play calls conservative.

Fantasy Tip: Shula probably isn't showing his full hand in the preseason, but it's not good to see the Panthers offense struggling the way it has. Still, it's way early and they haven't had time to settle into games, so don't be too alarmed. Jonathan Stewart has missed time due to injury, too.
