Panthers | Cam Newton on track to start?

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:17:36 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) had an increased set of repetitions in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, and it looks like he's on track to play in Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns. Head coach Ron Rivera has yet to name Newton the starter, though, but he showed no signs of pain for the second straight day. Newton has been showing good velocity on his throws and hasn't had restrictions with his movement. QB Derek Anderson took second-team reps Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Newton ($6,700) looks like he'll start against the Browns, but he's been too up and down to trust at FantasyScore, especially against a Cleveland team that isn't too shabby against opposing signal callers.

Panthers | Cam Newton back at practice

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 10:12:16 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) returned to practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and he worked with the second-team offense in the portion of practice open to the media. QB Derek Anderson worked with the first-team. Newton's status for Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns is uncertain right now, but he looked to be moving and throwing well Wednesday. He also ran and make some juke moves without difficulty. Head coach Ron Rivera said he had hoped to make a decision on the starting QB early in the week.

Fantasy Tip: Newton ($6,700) is a very risky play this weekend against the Browns, even if he returns to action. Cleveland actually has limited opposing QBs to an average of 13.41 fantasy points per game all season long.

Panthers | Derek Anderson leans on Greg Olsen

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 15:39:53 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson had 15 passes of 10 or more yards in Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and six of Anderson's passes of 10 or more yards went to TE Greg Olsen, who had 10 catches for 110 yards in the game. Anderson tends to lean more on Olsen as he holds the ball longer in the pocket and goes through his progressions. Olsen had eight catches for 83 yards in Week 1 when Anderson started.

Fantasy Tip: The Cleveland Browns have been good at stopping the tight end position this year, but if Cam Newton (back) sits out for another week, Olsen ($6,600) should be one of the safer FantasyScore tight end plays.

Panthers | Derek Anderson to start in Week 15

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 10:59:44 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson will get the start in the team's Week 15 game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson will cost $3,700 in FantasyScore this week, and is a nice sleeper option for your roster. Anderson played well against the Buccaneers in the team's Week 1 game.

Panthers | Cam Newton to miss practice

Wed, 10 Dec 2014 10:19:01 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) will not be at the team's facilities Wednesday, Dec. 10, after being discharged from the hospital. It is unknown how long it will be until he's ready to return to action. "That will be determined really on a day-to-day basis and we'll see how fast the soreness goes away," team spokesman Charlie Dayton said. "He'll start the recuperation process today." QB Derek Anderson was taking first-team repetitions in practice Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Newton ($6,900) is unlikely to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend, so you should avoid him at FantasyScore. Anderson went 24-for-34 for 230 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 against the Bucs. At $3,700, he's definitely a sleeper option if you feel like being risky.

Panthers | Cam Newton may miss several weeks

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 09:52:00 -0700

The Carolina Panthers fear that QB Cam Newton (ribs) could miss three to four weeks because of his injured ribs. Newton can change the team's mind if he can show he can protect his ribs while playing. At this point, the team plans to start QB Derek Anderson Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation for any updates on Newton's condition. FantasyScore owners should avoid using Newton this week. Anderson should not be an option in fantasy leagues at any point.

Panthers | Cam Newton hopes to play

Thu, 04 Sep 2014 11:57:59 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) said he expects to play Week 1 but will allow the coaches and trainers to determine his availability. Newton was able to do some throwing during practice Thursday, Sept. 4, and said it does not hurt when he throws.

Fantasy Tip: Derek Anderson likely would get the start Week 1 if Newton sits out but should not be used in any fantasy league.

Panthers | Cam Newton expects to play

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 21:47:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) said Wednesday, Aug. 27, that he will be ready for the regular season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite fracturing his ribs last week. "There's no doubt in my mind," Newton said.

Fantasy Tip: If Newton is unable to play, Derek Anderson would likely get the start. For now, Newton is a risky play for the regular season opener, and he could easily have a setback if he is hit the wrong way in Week 1. Fantasy owners should try to have plenty of depth on hand if they have already drafted Newton, or plan to do so.
