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.

Panthers | No surgery for Cam Newton

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 16:04:50 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said he will not need to undergo surgery on his injured should this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Newton dealt with various injury this season but should have a normal offseason unless the injury does not heal with rest. Newton had a down year compared to previous seasons but still posted solid numbers for owners. He may to less running in 2017 but should still be a fine starting quarterback for fantasy owners.

Panthers | Cam Newton may run less

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 15:39:57 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton likely will be asked to run fewer zone reads next season because head coach Ron Rivera said he wants to see Newton evolve as a quarterback and take fewer hits. "You can't sit there and expect us to run 20 zone reads and expect him to carry the ball 10 out of those 20 times," Rivera said. "That's the truth of the matter." Rivera said the team will still look for ways to use Newton's athleticism like play action passes.

Fantasy Tip: Newton rushed for 359 yards and five touchdowns in 2016 but also took a lot of hard hits during the season, so the Panthers likely will look for Newton to become a better pocket passer. He is a solid quarterback when he is healthy and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season.

Panthers | Cam Newton ends on low note

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 19:52:11 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 18 of his 32 pass attempts for 237 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the Week 17 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also ran three times for six yards.

Fantasy Tip: Newton's Week 17 line was a snapshot of his season. He passes for just 3,509 yards, 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while completing just short of 53 percent of his passes. Newton was an MVP last season, and was a high-round pick in most fantasy leagues. He was one of the biggest disappointments in fantasy football in 2016, and didn't likely lead many to championships.

Panthers | Cam Newton likely to play

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 07:42:21 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 17's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Newton was listed as questionable on the injury report despite being a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 30, after having been limited in the team's two other sessions earlier in the week. He's still worthy of consideration as a low-end QB1 option even though he has posted fewer than 200 passing yards in three of his last four games due to Tampa Bay's shaky pass defense.

Panthers | Cam Newton's status in question

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 15:50:42 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Newton should be able to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and likely will receive his normal workload. He has been held to under 200 yards in three of his last four games and has five touchdowns and three interceptions during that span. Newton can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues despite his recent play.

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 08:26:23 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is throwing in practice Friday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has a midrange matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His ability to run and throw always poses a possibility of a big game, but he's an inconsistent midrange QB1 in fantasy.

Panthers | Cam Newton limited Wednesday

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 14:23:51 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has had a season to forget, completing just below 53% of his passes. Despite his running ability, he's notorious for being one of the most inaccurate quarterbacks in the league. Even so, he has a favorable matchup versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and should be started in Week 17 fantasy title tilts.

Panthers | Cam Newton not throwing

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 09:11:24 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) isn't throwing at practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a so-so matchup for him this week. Newton always has the potential to strike off a big game, but he's a midrange QB1 without a ton of upside.
