Panthers | Cam Newton showing confidence

Mon, 25 May 2015 13:11:56 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton said no one has the size, the speed, the arm strength or the intangibles that he has. "I'm not saying that to say I'm a one-on-one type of person that this league will never see another… I'm just saying that so much of my talents have not been seen in one person."

Fantasy Tip: Newton is certainly a rare specimen. He has all the physical tools but sometimes struggles with inaccuracy. When healthy, he's a QB1 candidate. He finished as a QB2 last season but only played in 14 games. In 2015 drafts, take him as a QB1.

Panthers | Cam Newton not of interest to police

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 12:10:20 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is not a person of interest regarding a shooting last weekend in a Charlotte, N.C. nightclub. The investigation is ongoing, according to police.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Newton stays out of trouble and remains healthy (he missed two games in 2014), there's no reason to believe he shouldn't be considered a QB1 in 2015.

Panthers | Cam Newton deal won't be rushed

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 14:32:05 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton's expected new long-term contract may get done later rather than sooner. The topic of Newton's new deal was not even discussed when Newton's representatives and the Panthers met during the NFL scouting combine. If a new deal is not done this year, Carolina could franchise tag him in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Newton had the worst season of his young career in 2014, partly thanks to nagging injuries and a subpart wide receiver corps. If Newton can stay healthy, though, he still has QB1 potential and should still be considered a starting fantasy quarterback.

Panthers | Cam Newton begins extension talks

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 04:53:19 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton's representatives were scheduled to meet with the team this weekend at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Talks for a new contract were on the agenda.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has indicated he is in no hurry to sign, as he wants to wait and see how the market for Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck develops. Whatever the case, Newton is a safe bet to begin the season as the Panthers' starter but has shaky fantasy value because of how he fared against teams this year.

Panthers | Cam Newton hasn't fared well against Seattle

Mon, 05 Jan 2015 15:19:39 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is 0-3 against the Seattle Seahawks in his career, with all three games coming in Carolina. He has completed just 54% of his passes in those three games, and he's thrown just one touchdown and has one interception.

Fantasy Tip: Newton came out of the wild-card playoff win over the Arizona Cardinals with a decent stat line despite not playing that well. He'll have to play much better against Seattle on the road to have a chance at beating them. Against the Seahawks' stellar defense, we would advise FantasyScore players to look to avoid him this weekend.

Panthers | Cam Newton active

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 09:03:57 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) is active for the team's Week 16 game.

Fantasy Tip: Newton should be able to start this week after missing last week because of his back injury. Newton is a risky option this week at $6,700 on FantasyScore because of his injury and he is facing a tough Cleveland Browns defense.

Panthers | Cam Newton to start

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 11:46:07 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) will officially start Sunday, Dec. 21, against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Newton ($6,700) still isn't the best play on FantasyScore this week. The Browns allow 13.41 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks -- third fewest in the league.

Panthers | Cam Newton expected to start

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 13:07:52 -0800

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) has yet to officially be cleared to play in Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns, but head coach Ron Rivera is "very comfortable and confident" that Newton will start. "Right now, everything is pointing in the right direction," Rivera said. "The reason I haven't said anything (definitive) is because of that one big thing, waiting for doctors to tell me they feel good about it." Newton hasn't shown any signs of pain in practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: Newton ($6,700) just needs to be officially cleared by doctors, which is a certainty at this point. Feel free to start him, but his inconsistency this year should make you hesitant to put him in your FantasyScore lineup, especially after missing last week.

Panthers | Cam Newton probable against Browns

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 09:49:36 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) is listed as probable for Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: That means that Newton ($6,700) will almost certainly play against the Browns this weekend. Newton has been erratic this year, though, and he's a pretty risky FantasyScore option coming off his back injury, especially if he doesn't scramble as much.

Panthers | Cam Newton fully practices

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 11:42:42 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, and appears to be on track to start in Week 16, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Newton looks like he will be the starting quarterback this week if he does not suffer a setback. Newton is facing a Cleveland Browns defense that has allowed the third fewest average points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Newton costs $6,700 on FantasyScore but may not be the best option for owners.
