Panthers | Cam Newton on track

Mon, 08 May 2017 17:02:54 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is making progress in his recovery from shoulder surgery and is on schedule for the regular season, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

Fantasy Tip: Newton probably will be sidelined until at least training camp because of his shoulder and could be limited during camp and preseason as well. He should be ready for the start of the regular season and will be looking to improve on his 2016 season. He will have more weapons to work with the passing game this season and should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Panthers | Cam Newton on track for camp

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 12:36:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is "on schedule'' to be ready for training camp after having arthroscopic shoulder surgery on March 30, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

Fantasy Tip: Newton had a miserable season by his standards last season, although his offensive line and the bum shoulder didn't help him much in that regard. While a bounce-back year could be in order, the primary focus of the Panthers' offseason has been to cut down on the amount of punishment Newton receives, which should mean a decline in his number of rushing attempts. If that happens, Newton becomes more of a midrange fantasy QB1 instead of the elite one he was in 2015.

Panthers | Cam Newton prioritized leadership

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 19:54:07 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton said he played injured last year because he felt it was his duty as team captain.

Fantasy Tip: Newton was a perennial top-five fantasy option at his position prior to last year's injury-plagued campaign. If he slips in drafts, he could end up being a good value pick in 2017.

Panthers | Cam Newton on track for training camp

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 16:50:21 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) doesn't expect to be allowed to throw until late-June, but remains on track to be "all-clear" by the time training camp opens a month later.

Fantasy Tip: Newton will be seeking to follow up a season in which he was one of the biggest disappointments in all of fantasy football. Fortunately, it looks like he'll at least be healthy from the onset, and considering how he's descended draft boards everywhere, he could be a good value pick later on for owners.

Panthers | Cam Newton to be restricted at OTAs

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 20:00:34 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will be restricted from throwing throughout organized team activities, but he'll be able to participate in the two weeks of strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation that makes up Phase 1. He should also be able to take part in Phases 2 and 3, with the exception of anything that might put stress on his right shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Newton's coming off a season in which he registered by far the lowest quarterback rating of his career -- 75.8 -- while also rushing for a career-low 359 yards. In other words, he was one of the biggest disappointments in all of fantasy football last year. Even though he'll also be trying to come back from surgery, owners might be able to view him as a value pick later on in drafts, but he certainly no longer warrants an early selection like in years past.

Panthers | Surgery goes well for Cam Newton

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 10:15:39 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) underwent successful shoulder surgery on his partially torn rotator cuff Thursday, March 30.

Fantasy Tip: If Newton fully heals in time he could be ready to participate in training camp, but don't be surprised if he doesn't see much preseason action. Newton is coming off a season to forget -- arguably the worst of his six-year career. As such, drafting him as more than a low-end QB1 is ill-advised.

Panthers | Cam Newton needs confidence repaired

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 05:34:07 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton needs to repair his confidence in the offseason, according to head coach Ron Rivera. "He's going to have to rebuild his confidence," Rivera said. "It was shook. Let's be honest, I'm not going to lie about that."

Fantasy Tip: Newton is slated to miss most of the offseason after surgery to repair a partially torn rotator cuff that he played the last three games with. They addressed the offensive line and are planning to add a running back in the draft. Newton should be in the midrange of the QB1 area in fantasy. However, coming off a down season and an injury adds some caution flags.

Panthers | 'No concern' Cam Newton ready for opener

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 10:39:49 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will be ready for the season opener "without a doubt", according to head coach Ron Rivera. Newton is set to undergo surgery Thursday, March 30, to repair the partially torn rotator cuff he suffered in Week 14. "There is no concern, at least in talking with the trainers and doctors. … They have a timeframe that they've mapped out for the most part. He'll be working with the trainers and he'll be working with us for the most part during the OTAs and minicamps," Rivera said.

Fantasy Tip: Newton will have about four full months before the start of training camp and has a little more than five months to recover in order to be ready for the season opener. By all accounts, the team is counting on him making a transition into being more of a pocket quarterback, which would make him far less valuable in fantasy. Between the surgery and his changing game, Newton may no longer make sense as a fantasy QB1 anymore.

Panthers | Cam Newton to have surgery

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 12:33:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will undergo surgery on a partially torn rotator cuff Thursday, March 30. The procedure is expected to sideline Newton for about four months.

Fantasy Tip: That timetable will put Newton right on the brink of being available for the start of the preseason. The Panthers may choose to hold Newton out for all of the offseason to as to ensure a complete and safe recovery. Assuming Newton does make a full recovery and is fully healthy for the start of the regular season, he remains a mid- to low-end QB1 option.

Panthers | Season to forget for Cam Newton

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 16:01:26 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton tallied career lows in completion percentage (52.9) and passer rating (75.8) just one year after winning the NFL MVP. He also managed a career low in rush attempts (90) and rushing yards (359) and tied his career low in rushing touchdowns (5).

Fantasy Tip: Newton is one of the most dynamic players in football, but his propensity for inaccuracy clearly led to the demise of the Panthers and himself. Newton's running ability will always make him a QB1 consideration, however. Even with his worst season so far in his career, he still finished as a high-end QB2.
