Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson completed 18 of his 28 pass attempts for 278 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was filling in for the injured QB Cam Newton (concussion).
Fantasy Tip: Anderson didn't have a great game, but he had a nice rapport with Greg Olsen, and he might be a decent sleeper fantasy play in Week 6 against a leaky New Orleans pass defense if Newton is unable to go, or held out until after the team's bye in Week 7.
Sun, 02 Oct 2016 15:59:38 -0700
Updating a previous report, the Carolina Panthers confirmed QB Cam Newton (concussion) suffered a concussion in the Week 4 game against the Atlanta Falcons. QB Derek Anderson finished the game in his absence.
Fantasy Tip: Newton will be in the league's concussion protocol after getting smashed at the goal-line trying for a conversion in Sunday's loss. It's uncertain if he will be forced to miss time, but if he is unable to play in Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night it would be Derek Anderson getting the nod.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 10:40:38 -0700
Updating an earlier report, Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson's two-year extension is worth $5 million through 2017. He's due $1.5 million in 2015.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 10:03:32 -0700
Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson signed a two-year extension Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Fri, 02 Jan 2015 11:51:39 -0800
Carolina Panthers LB A.J. Klein (ankle) fully practiced Friday, Jan. 2, and is questionable for the team's wild-card playoff. QB Derek Anderson (illness) and OG Fernando Velasco (non-injury) both fully practiced and are probable. S Thomas DeCoud (hamstring) did not practice and is doubtful.
Thu, 01 Jan 2015 15:29:55 -0800
Carolina Panthers S Thomas DeCoud (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Jan. 1. QB Derek Anderson (illness), LB A.J. Klein (ankle) and OG Fernando Velasco (non-injury related) practiced fully.
Wed, 31 Dec 2014 12:20:09 -0800
Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson (illness) and OG Fernando Velasco (non-injury) both did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 31. S Thomas DeCoud (hamstring) was limited in practice. LB A.J. Klein (ankle) fully practiced.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thu, 28 Aug 2014 17:40:53 -0700

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.
Tue, 26 Aug 2014 05:57:18 -0700
Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson's wife is expected to go into labor any day, and he could miss the final preseason game this week. QB Joe Webb would be the only healthy quarterback able to play in the final preseason game. Head coach Ron Rivera said the team has two unnamed options to serve as the emergency quarterback on the roster.
Mon, 25 Aug 2014 10:33:32 -0700
Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson will start against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the team's final preseason game, and he'll be the starter in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if QB Cam Newton (rib cage) isn't ready by then. Newton's injury increases the likelihood that the team will keep QB Joe Webb on roster, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Fantasy Tip: Carolina faces an undervalued Bucs defense in Week 1. If Anderson were to start, he shouldn't be considered in any leagues.
Fri, 08 Aug 2014 16:46:15 -0700
Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) was inactive for the preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 8, as expected. QB Derek Anderson started in Newton's absence.
Fantasy Tip: The injury does not sound to be serious, but it is still bad news because it is one less game situation for Newton to work with his new stable of receivers.
Thu, 10 Jul 2014 11:22:13 -0700
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton will work with his wide receivers before training camp gets underway to try to get on the same page after missing time due to an ankle issue. "It's been more difficult because Cam's coming off an ankle injury and he had to get surgery, so we couldn't throw with him as much as we would like," Panthers receiver Tiquan Underwood said.
"I know we're all going to get together next week in Charlotte. We're just going to try to speed up the process. We're all going to throw -- Derek Anderson, Cam Newton, Joe Webb, Matt Blanchard and all the receivers -- just to work on timing and get that down pat before camp."
Fantasy Tip: Newton and his wide receivers are behind after not getting much work in during the offseason program. This is a good start to help get back up to speed before the full squad reports at the end of the month. Newton remains a fringe QB1 option for fantasy players thanks to his questionable receiving targets.
