Panthers | Cam Newton progressing

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 11:28:38 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is "throwing more each day and feels fine," according to a source. He is reportedly on track to play in the team's next preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, Aug. 24, however.

Fantasy Tip: If so, this would be a welcome development, even if he is rusty and only plays a couple of series. For what it is worth, Newton reportedly wants to play but the team is said to be exercising caution. If Newton plays next week, owners need to keep their expectations in check, as he will most likely be rusty.

Panthers | Cam Newton to sit against Tennessee

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 10:51:37 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will not play versus the Tennessee Titans on Saturday, Aug. 19. Head coach Ron Rivera made the decision after the second of two joint practices against the Titans on Thursday, Aug. 17, and Newton did not throw in team drills during either practice. "You could tell he was rusty. A couple late (balls) on the decisions he made. When he was throwing the ball, he was throwing the ball well, so we're not concerned about that. Now it's just a matter of him working himself back into shape where he can go out and take normal reps instead of us having to make sure we monitor him," Rivera said.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers remain unconcerned - at least publicly - about Newton's availability for the season opener, but owners probably need to consider him a low-end QB1 at this point and back him up with another quarterback with a solid early-season schedule, such as Carson Palmer, to protect themselves against a predictable slow start from Newton.

Panthers | Cam Newton takes part in team drills

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 09:06:11 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is being restricted from making deep throws, but he made some passes during a red zone portion of practice Sunday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has about another month to get ready for the season opener against the San Francisco 49ers, so there is no cause for alarm yet. Expect Newton to progressively work on deeper throws toward the end of the month before the team allows him to cut it loose in the first week of September. There is no question he comes with some risk, but Newton has top-five upside at his position if he doesn't experience any setbacks.

Panthers | Curtis Samuel working with Cam Newton

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 21:53:37 -0700

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (hamstring) is unable to practice, but he said he has been running routes at half speed on the sidelines with QB Cam Newton (shoulder), who is also unable to practice.

Fantasy Tip: Samuel is a big-play waiting to happen, but his role in the offense isn't clear, and the injury is going to make the learning curve even steeper for the rookie. He is worth a late-round flier, but he could be a year away from making a consistent fantasy impact.

Panthers | Cam Newton close to returning

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 14:27:53 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) appears to be "over the hump" in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Newton is feeling better and is expected to practice soon.

Fantasy Tip: Newton should be good to go for Week 1 of the regular season as long as he doesn't see any setbacks. The Panthers will assuredly take it easy with their star throughout the preseason. His inconsistencies and injury history make Newton a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2.

Panthers | Cam Newton likely to sit preseason opener

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 07:15:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is unlikely to play in the preseason opener, but he is expected to play at some point this preseason, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has a solid core around him for the first time in a long time, and he should be good to go for the season. He's a solid QB1, but history shows his MVP year as an aberration thus far.

Panthers | Cam Newton does some light throwing

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 16:30:55 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) did some light throwing with the trainers Sunday, Aug. 6. Head coach Ron Rivera said the trainers told him that Newton did not report any problems after the throwing session.

Fantasy Tip: Newton is working his way back from his offseason shoulder surgery and should have a good chance to be ready for the start of the regular season. The team has added a few new weapons for Newton to work with in the passing game, which should help his passing stats. Newton may not run as much as in the past but will still be a threat to run. Owners probably should consider Newton as a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback as long as he is healthy.

Panthers | Cam Newton resting again

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 07:24:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will not throw again during team drills Wednesday, Aug. 2, as he rests his sore right shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Newton's MVP season sticks out as a big aberration in his career numbers, but there's little question he possesses that kind of talent - especially now that he has more around him. He's a midrange QB1 with upside.

Panthers | Cam Newton dealing with sore shoulder

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 10:55:24 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) sat out practice Tuesday, August 1, after reporting soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder. "He started warming up this morning and said he still felt a little bit sore. Why push it? Why have him throw with a sore arm and make it worse? It made no sense to have him throw with a sore shoulder," head coach Ron Rivera said.

Fantasy Tip: Newton's absence sounds precautionary, but these type reports should be considered par for the course of the next month or so. Although he brings as much risk to the table as any QB1 given his offseason surgery and the uncertainty of how Carolina's new offensive philosophy will affect him, he also brings league-winning upside. Consider him a midrange QB1 for now.
