Panthers | Cam Newton officially limited

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:09:56 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: It was good to see Newton back at practice and throwing and running just more than a week after being involved in a horrific car accident. It's unknown if he'll be able to play in Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns, though, making him a risky commodity at FantasyScore for $6,700.

Panthers | Cam Newton back at practice

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.

Panthers | Cam Newton may throw Tuesday

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 06:16:35 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) worked out on an underwater treadmill Tuesday, Dec. 16, and did some rational exercises. The team plans to have him attempt throws as well.

Fantasy Tip: Newton ($6,700; 13.4% of your cap) still has hurdles to cross, but he's really not a promising start on FantasyScore to begin with.

Panthers | Cam Newton's Week 16 status uncertain

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 10:17:52 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) will only start in Week 16 if the team believes Newton can protect himself during the game, according to head coach Ron Rivera. "I don't want to put a guy out there that can't protect himself," Rivera said. "By that it's being able to run out of the way, scramble out of the way, stay alive, keep the play alive by being able to get away. That's all part of it. That's all part of the decision that went into the first Tampa Bay game." The team has a rehab program for Newton, and his status will be determined based on if he can meet the rehab goals during the week.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor this situation during the week to see if Newton has a chance to play in Week 16. Newton could be limited if he is cleared to play, so owners may want to use a different option at quarterback for this upcoming week.

Panthers | Cam Newton may play in Week 16

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 09:40:02 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) is considered day-to-day, but the team is optimistic about Newton's availability for Week 16, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor his practice participation next week to have a better idea on his status. QB Derek Anderson will be starting in his place in Week 15 but probably should not be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Panthers | Cam Newton not worried about return

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 13:06:27 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) currently isn't concerned about whether he'll be able to return to action this season. "As far as when I'm coming back, who cares," Newton said. "That's not something I'm worried about. I'm just thankful to have breath in my lungs so I can breathe again." Head coach Ron Rivera said the best-case-scenario would be to have Newton back at practice next week, but there are no guarantees.

Fantasy Tip: Newton won't play this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Derek Anderson ($3,700) will start instead, and he's a risky sleeper option if you're willing to dig deep.

Panthers | Cam Newton to miss practice

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.
