Panthers | Rough night for Cam Newton

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 18:59:38 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 13 of his 29 passes for 100 yards and two interceptions and had one carry for nine yards against the New England Patriots Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Don't read too much into Newton's poor outing. His running ability and improved targets in the passing game should ensure another season of high-end QB1 production.

Panthers | Cam Newton altering cadence

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 23:33:31 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and the rest of the offense are changing their pre-snap terminology this season to prevent defenses picking up on their play calling.

Fantasy Tip: This is something most teams do, and it doesn't affect much. Newton threw for 3,837 yards and 35 touchdowns with 10 interceptions during his MVP campaign. He also rushed for 636 yards and 10 scores. He remains a high-end QB1 in fantasy.

Panthers | Cam Newton can still improve

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:39:42 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton still has an awful lot of room to grow, in the words of head coach Ron Rivera. "As he continues to learn and understand more and more about offensive and defensive plays, his decision-making is going to be even better," Rivera said. "As long as he continues to stay healthy and keep getting better physically and work on his base fundamentals, I think the young man is going to get better."

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to envision Newton playing better after the season he had last year, but there were some games where he was erratic. He's one of the biggest dual threats in the game today and should be a consideration for the top fantasy quarterback spot.

Panthers | Cam Newton expected to be at OTAs

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 10:23:53 -0700

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera expects QB Cam Newton to be on the field for the start of organized team activities Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Newton is definitely a top-tier QB1 after taking home MVP honors last year while throwing for 3,837 yards and 35 touchdowns and running for another 636 yards and 10 scores. It'll be tough matching those numbers in 2016, but Newton's ability to make noise with his arms and legs is unmatched right now.

Panthers | Cam Newton reacts to fumble

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 08:05:52 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton said he didn't dive after a second-half fumble in the Super Bowl because of the way his leg was positioned. "I don't dive on one fumble because the way my leg was - it could have been (contorted) in a way," Newton said. "OK, you say my effort. I didn't dive down. I fumbled. That's fine. But we didn't lose that game because of that fumble. I can tell you that."

Fantasy Tip: Newton has his critics, but what can't be questioned is that he vaulted himself into the elite club of fantasy quarterbacks. He'll be among the top four or five QBs taken in drafts at worst.

Panthers | Cam Newton held out of end zone

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 20:00:06 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 18 of 41 passes for 265 yards and an interception and carried six times for 45 yards in a 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 Sunday, Feb. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Newton was under constant pressure from the stout Denver defense, and although his season ended on a sour note, he should still be considered one of the top fantasy quarterbacks when the 2016 season rolls around.

Panthers | Cam Newton takes home some hardware

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 19:06:45 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton was named the 2015 NFL Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year Saturday, Feb. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Thanks to his improvements as a passer, Newton went from a QB1 to an elite fantasy option at his position in 2015. With receiver Kelvin Benjamin returning next year, Newton could actually be even better.

Panthers | Cam Newton fourth QB to reach 50 TDs

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 15:01:37 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton reached 50 combined passing and rushing touchdowns in the NFC Championship Game, making him only the fourth quarterback in league history to reach the Super Bowl with that many scores. Surprisingly, the three previous quarterbacks to have at least 50 combined passing and rushing touchdowns entering the Super Bowl all lost the game, by a combined 60 points.

Fantasy Tip: The other quarterbacks are Peyton Manning (60 touchdowns in 2013), Tom Brady (57; 2007) and Dan Marino (55; 1984). The 0-3 record would seem to be a bit of an anomaly at first blush, but each quarterback faced a dominant defense in the Super Bowl during their career year and were turned away. History is working against Newton as he attempts to lead the Panthers to their first championship in team history.

Panthers | Carolina efficient in red zone

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 13:05:23 -0800

The Carolina Panthers and QB Cam Newton scored a touchdown on 68% of their red zone drives during the regular season. Only the Detroit Lions (69%) were better in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: They'll need to keep that trend going in the Super Bowl against the No. 1 defense in the Denver Broncos if they want to win the game. Surprisingly, Denver wasn't that good defending down in the red zone this year, and Newton presents plenty of problems with his legs and his arm near the touchdown stripe.

Panthers | Cam Newton good in play action

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 11:12:51 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton had nine touchdowns on play-action passes this year, which was second to only New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (10). The Denver Broncos allowed just 87 play-action pass attempts this year (second-fewest), 54% completion percentage on those plays (ranked second) and just two touchdowns (tied for second-fewest).

Fantasy Tip: It'll all come back to how well the Panthers can run against a strong run-stopping unit in Denver. If Carolina runs the ball effectively, Newton should have more success on play-action plays in Super Bowl 50.
