Panthers | Cam Newton will work with wide receivers

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 11:22:13 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton will work with his wide receivers before training camp gets underway to try to get on the same page after missing time due to an ankle issue. "It's been more difficult because Cam's coming off an ankle injury and he had to get surgery, so we couldn't throw with him as much as we would like," Panthers receiver Tiquan Underwood said. "I know we're all going to get together next week in Charlotte. We're just going to try to speed up the process. We're all going to throw Derek Anderson, Cam Newton, Joe Webb, Matt Blanchard and all the receivers just to work on timing and get that down pat before camp."

Fantasy Tip: Newton and his wide receivers are behind after not getting much work in during the offseason program. This is a good start to help get back up to speed before the full squad reports at the end of the month.

Panthers | Cam Newton gets praise from teammate

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 10:26:08 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen praised QB Cam Newton. "I don't know if there is another QB in the league that does what he does...he has really grown," Newton said.

Fantasy Tip: The big question with Newton will be his health after undergoing an ankle procedure in the offseason. If he is healthy going into training camp, he should be considered a QB2 going into the season.

Panthers | Cam Newton ahead of schedule

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 11:57:56 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) participated in seven-on-seven drills for the first time since his ankle surgery in March. He's about a month ahead of schedule, as he was initially supposed to start drills at training camp in July. Newton said he's excited to return, but admits he's not at 100 percent. Head coach Ron Rivera said Newton made good decisions and the right reads, but didn't get the ball where he needed to, adding that accuracy will come with time as Newton becomes healthier. Additionally, the team plans to limit his runs in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: This is certainly a promising sign for Newton and fantasy players. Still, no matter how well Newton is progressing, he doesn't exactly have a deep supporting cast and should be considered a QB2 going into the season.

Panthers | Cam Newton tests ankle

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 09:47:14 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) tested his surgically repaired ankle Tuesday, June 17, and did more than head coach Ron Rivera was expecting. Newton did not participate in any team drills after taking three and five-step drops on passes to wide receivers. "I think I'm on schedule to make a speedy recovery," Newton said after practice. "We are in the last curve and I am just trying to be smart about it, do everything that the trainers ask of me and more and see where that gets me."

Fantasy Tip: Newton appears to be right on track in his recovery from ankle surgery. As long as there are no setbacks, he should be good to go for training camp.

Panthers | Cam Newton may be ready in June

Wed, 28 May 2014 12:14:53 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) may be ready for the team's June 16-19 minicamp, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Newton has thrown some off to the side during the first two days of organized team activities. He's showing no signs of limping, although he skipped some drills like high steps. Newton added that his foot is getting stronger every day.

Fantasy Tip: This is certainly promising news for Newton, who has been a top-five fantasy quarterback in each of his first three seasons. While it may take some time for him to fully recover and get used to his new receiving corps, hes still a solid QB1 option in all formats.
