Panthers | Cam Newton still on the mend

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 11:33:11 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) may not be 100 percent healthy going into camp, according to head coach Ron Rivera. "I know he's been throwing it. … He's talking to the trainers about (how much he should be throwing). I'm just pleased there is an opportunity for him to start off and start off on the right foot," Rivera said.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should be cautiously optimistic here. The fact he has been allowed to throw without supervision is a positive sign in and of itself, but it sounds as if Newton could still very much use the extra month-plus to complete the healing process. It seems highly unlikely the Panthers will expose Newton to much, if any, action in the preseason. Assuming he remains on his current track, however, he should still be considered a midrange to low-end QB1 in fantasy.

Panthers | Cam Newton working with teammates

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 11:41:33 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is throwing to teammates during workouts in Baltimore, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Newton appears to be making good progress in his recovery from shoulder surgery and should be ready for the start of the regular season. The team is looking for Newton to run less, which will hurt his fantasy value a bit, but it could also keep him healthy during the season. Newton probably can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey to work out with QB

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 13:56:42 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey said he is expects to catch passes from QB Cam Newton (shoulder) this weekend and next weekend.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey should have a role in the passing game this season, so it will help him to build chemistry with Newton leading up to the season. McCaffrey probably will also be involved in the running game, which makes him a solid option for fantasy owners. He should be considered a No. 3 running back or flex option in leagues.

Panthers | Ron Rivera confident in offense

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 13:37:06 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton may be instructed to run less this year, but head coach Ron Rivera still believes the Panthers will have an explosive offense. Rivera said his goal is for the Panthers to remain a run-focused team without Newton having to run too much.

Fantasy Tip: Newton does need to take fewer hits, and fewer runs, naturally, will help in that endeavor. Cam can still be utilized close to the goal line, though. He's a borderline QB1as long as he's healthy.

Panthers | Cam Newton instructed to run less

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 09:51:32 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has been encouraged to get the ball out quicker and run less often, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: We may not see 45 total touchdowns from Cam again. There are six years of data on him, and the only aberration among it is his MVP year. That's not to say he can't be a really good fantasy quarterback. He's someone to consider after the elite tier has been drafted.

Panthers | Cam Newton's confidence was shaken

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 06:26:43 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton's down year in 2016 was due in part to a loss of confidence in his offensive line, which was hit hard by injuries. A big part of Newton's game has always been his ability to hold the ball, buy time and strike downfield. The injuries to the line affected that.

Fantasy Tip: Newton completed just 52.9 percent of his passes and tossed 16 fewer touchdowns than in his MVP 2015 campaign. His rushing numbers were cut in half as well. As the line goes, he goes. He's coming off of shoulder surgery, but he's expected to be ready for camp. He'll be an upper-middle option as a QB1 in fantasy.

Panthers | Cam Newton changing his diet and approach

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 09:59:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton claims he is "hands down" the thinnest he's been at this point in an offseason and admits he has to realize his job "is not necessarily to always be the playmaker," according to Panthers.com writer Bill Voth.

Fantasy Tip: Newton seems to be onboard with the changes Carolina was hoping to bring about when it added Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel in the draft this April. Even though it might be hard for owners to adjust their thinking on Newton, the reality of the situation is 2017 will probably mark the official start of his transition into being more of a mobile - as opposed to a running - quarterback. A return to top-five fantasy quarterback status cannot and should not be ruled out.

Panthers | Cam Newton begins throwing

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 07:42:08 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) began light throwing Monday, June 26, for the first time since offseason shoulder surgery. He threw 45 passes to athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion. "Obviously, it's still not 100 percent, but seeing the ball come out of my hand in a throwing motion was good. When I say it's not 100 percent, I'm noting the range of motion part," Newton said. "Like if you sleep with your legs hanging off your bed the whole night, you're going to wake up and be super stiff. Or like sitting on your hands, or sitting in an awkward position and finally getting up and moving - that's how I feel."

Fantasy Tip: Newton fell back to the pack a bit after his MVP 2015 season, but he remains a high-end option at the position after the elite tier is drafted.

Panthers | Cam Newton still on track in his rehab

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 12:29:06 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) did not throw during minicamp, but his recovery from shoulder surgery is still on track. Head coach Ron Rivera said last week he expected Newton to throw, but clarified that statement this week.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera initially said following the surgery that his quarterback would start throwing 12 weeks after the procedure, which is next week. Newton's fantasy star is dimming a bit as the Panthers want to reduce their reliance on his running ability, although he still figures to generate more fantasy value on the ground than most quarterbacks for at least another year or two. He should be considered a mid- to low-end QB in most fantasy leagues in 2017.

Panthers | No throwing for Cam Newton

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 15:07:05 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will not throw during the minicamp this week, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Newton will not throw until training camp and probably will be limited during practice so his surgically repaired shoulder can heal. Newton will have more weapons to work with in the passing game this season and will still be a threat to run. Owners in all leagues should consider him a No. 1 quarterback as long as he is healthy.
