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.

Panthers | Cam Newton not dealing with pain

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:56:07 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) said he is not dealing with any pain in his back but is taking things one day at a time. Newton said he needs to be 100 percent before he can play.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has been able to do things during practice this week, so he may have a chance to play in Week 16. Newton has a price of $6,700 on FantasyScore but may be a risky option because of the injury and his matchup against the Cleveland Browns.

Panthers | Cam Newton on track to start?

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:17:36 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) had an increased set of repetitions in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, and it looks like he's on track to play in Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns. Head coach Ron Rivera has yet to name Newton the starter, though, but he showed no signs of pain for the second straight day. Newton has been showing good velocity on his throws and hasn't had restrictions with his movement. QB Derek Anderson took second-team reps Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Newton ($6,700) looks like he'll start against the Browns, but he's been too up and down to trust at FantasyScore, especially against a Cleveland team that isn't too shabby against opposing signal callers.

Panthers | Cam Newton working with starters

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 09:30:22 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) is working with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Newton has a good chance to play this week but owners should continue to monitor the situation. Newton has a tough matchup against the Cleveland Browns in Week 16 and may not be a great starting option in FantasyScore at $6,700.

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.
