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 won't play in first tilt

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.

Panthers | Cam Newton wants to rebound

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 10:41:34 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton took his disappointing 2016 campaign personally and said the upcoming season isn't just another year.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has slimmed down this offseason and appears to have a newfound focus heading into the new season. It remains to be seen what actually comes of these new developments, but he's saying and doing the right things. Newton is a borderline QB1, just be prepared for him to miss a game or two.

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.

Panthers | Cam Newton will throw on the side

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 12:32:14 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is expected to throw off to the side at next week's minicamp, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Newton is ahead of schedule in his rehab process, but it's unclear just how far away he is from being fully recovered from his shoulder surgery. It's not likely that he'll see much preseason action, but he remains a QB1 candidate as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks.

Panthers | Cam Newton ahead of schedule

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 10:24:35 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is ahead of schedule with his rehab and expected to throw on the side during Carolina's three-day minicamp next week, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Newton will work directly with trainer Ryan Vermillion, and it is unknown how much he will throw.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has obvious ability to dominate but a fair amount of risk will be assumed by prospective drafters. Returning from rotator cuff surgery is no joke. The veteran is a midrange QB1 in most situations.

Panthers | Cam Newton on track

Mon, 08 May 2017 17:02:54 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is making progress in his recovery from shoulder surgery and is on schedule for the regular season, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

Fantasy Tip: Newton probably will be sidelined until at least training camp because of his shoulder and could be limited during camp and preseason as well. He should be ready for the start of the regular season and will be looking to improve on his 2016 season. He will have more weapons to work with the passing game this season and should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Panthers | Cam Newton on track for camp

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 12:36:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is "on schedule'' to be ready for training camp after having arthroscopic shoulder surgery on March 30, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

Fantasy Tip: Newton had a miserable season by his standards last season, although his offensive line and the bum shoulder didn't help him much in that regard. While a bounce-back year could be in order, the primary focus of the Panthers' offseason has been to cut down on the amount of punishment Newton receives, which should mean a decline in his number of rushing attempts. If that happens, Newton becomes more of a midrange fantasy QB1 instead of the elite one he was in 2015.

Panthers | Cam Newton prioritized leadership

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 19:54:07 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton said he played injured last year because he felt it was his duty as team captain.

Fantasy Tip: Newton was a perennial top-five fantasy option at his position prior to last year's injury-plagued campaign. If he slips in drafts, he could end up being a good value pick in 2017.

Panthers | Cam Newton on track for training camp

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 16:50:21 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) doesn't expect to be allowed to throw until late-June, but remains on track to be "all-clear" by the time training camp opens a month later.

Fantasy Tip: Newton will be seeking to follow up a season in which he was one of the biggest disappointments in all of fantasy football. Fortunately, it looks like he'll at least be healthy from the onset, and considering how he's descended draft boards everywhere, he could be a good value pick later on for owners.

Panthers | Cam Newton to be restricted at OTAs

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 20:00:34 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will be restricted from throwing throughout organized team activities, but he'll be able to participate in the two weeks of strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation that makes up Phase 1. He should also be able to take part in Phases 2 and 3, with the exception of anything that might put stress on his right shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Newton's coming off a season in which he registered by far the lowest quarterback rating of his career -- 75.8 -- while also rushing for a career-low 359 yards. In other words, he was one of the biggest disappointments in all of fantasy football last year. Even though he'll also be trying to come back from surgery, owners might be able to view him as a value pick later on in drafts, but he certainly no longer warrants an early selection like in years past.

Panthers | Surgery goes well for Cam Newton

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 10:15:39 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) underwent successful shoulder surgery on his partially torn rotator cuff Thursday, March 30.

Fantasy Tip: If Newton fully heals in time he could be ready to participate in training camp, but don't be surprised if he doesn't see much preseason action. Newton is coming off a season to forget -- arguably the worst of his six-year career. As such, drafting him as more than a low-end QB1 is ill-advised.

Panthers | Cam Newton needs confidence repaired

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 05:34:07 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton needs to repair his confidence in the offseason, according to head coach Ron Rivera. "He's going to have to rebuild his confidence," Rivera said. "It was shook. Let's be honest, I'm not going to lie about that."

Fantasy Tip: Newton is slated to miss most of the offseason after surgery to repair a partially torn rotator cuff that he played the last three games with. They addressed the offensive line and are planning to add a running back in the draft. Newton should be in the midrange of the QB1 area in fantasy. However, coming off a down season and an injury adds some caution flags.

Panthers | 'No concern' Cam Newton ready for opener

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 10:39:49 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will be ready for the season opener "without a doubt", according to head coach Ron Rivera. Newton is set to undergo surgery Thursday, March 30, to repair the partially torn rotator cuff he suffered in Week 14. "There is no concern, at least in talking with the trainers and doctors. … They have a timeframe that they've mapped out for the most part. He'll be working with the trainers and he'll be working with us for the most part during the OTAs and minicamps," Rivera said.

Fantasy Tip: Newton will have about four full months before the start of training camp and has a little more than five months to recover in order to be ready for the season opener. By all accounts, the team is counting on him making a transition into being more of a pocket quarterback, which would make him far less valuable in fantasy. Between the surgery and his changing game, Newton may no longer make sense as a fantasy QB1 anymore.

Panthers | Cam Newton to have surgery

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 12:33:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will undergo surgery on a partially torn rotator cuff Thursday, March 30. The procedure is expected to sideline Newton for about four months.

Fantasy Tip: That timetable will put Newton right on the brink of being available for the start of the preseason. The Panthers may choose to hold Newton out for all of the offseason to as to ensure a complete and safe recovery. Assuming Newton does make a full recovery and is fully healthy for the start of the regular season, he remains a mid- to low-end QB1 option.

Panthers | Season to forget for Cam Newton

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 16:01:26 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton tallied career lows in completion percentage (52.9) and passer rating (75.8) just one year after winning the NFL MVP. He also managed a career low in rush attempts (90) and rushing yards (359) and tied his career low in rushing touchdowns (5).

Fantasy Tip: Newton is one of the most dynamic players in football, but his propensity for inaccuracy clearly led to the demise of the Panthers and himself. Newton's running ability will always make him a QB1 consideration, however. Even with his worst season so far in his career, he still finished as a high-end QB2.

Panthers | No surgery for Cam Newton

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 16:04:50 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said he will not need to undergo surgery on his injured should this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Newton dealt with various injury this season but should have a normal offseason unless the injury does not heal with rest. Newton had a down year compared to previous seasons but still posted solid numbers for owners. He may to less running in 2017 but should still be a fine starting quarterback for fantasy owners.

Panthers | Cam Newton may run less

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 15:39:57 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton likely will be asked to run fewer zone reads next season because head coach Ron Rivera said he wants to see Newton evolve as a quarterback and take fewer hits. "You can't sit there and expect us to run 20 zone reads and expect him to carry the ball 10 out of those 20 times," Rivera said. "That's the truth of the matter." Rivera said the team will still look for ways to use Newton's athleticism like play action passes.

Fantasy Tip: Newton rushed for 359 yards and five touchdowns in 2016 but also took a lot of hard hits during the season, so the Panthers likely will look for Newton to become a better pocket passer. He is a solid quarterback when he is healthy and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season.

Panthers | Cam Newton ends on low note

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 19:52:11 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 18 of his 32 pass attempts for 237 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the Week 17 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also ran three times for six yards.

Fantasy Tip: Newton's Week 17 line was a snapshot of his season. He passes for just 3,509 yards, 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while completing just short of 53 percent of his passes. Newton was an MVP last season, and was a high-round pick in most fantasy leagues. He was one of the biggest disappointments in fantasy football in 2016, and didn't likely lead many to championships.

Panthers | Cam Newton likely to play

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 07:42:21 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 17's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Newton was listed as questionable on the injury report despite being a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 30, after having been limited in the team's two other sessions earlier in the week. He's still worthy of consideration as a low-end QB1 option even though he has posted fewer than 200 passing yards in three of his last four games due to Tampa Bay's shaky pass defense.

Panthers | Cam Newton's status in question

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 15:50:42 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Newton should be able to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and likely will receive his normal workload. He has been held to under 200 yards in three of his last four games and has five touchdowns and three interceptions during that span. Newton can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues despite his recent play.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is throwing in practice Friday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has a midrange matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His ability to run and throw always poses a possibility of a big game, but he's an inconsistent midrange QB1 in fantasy.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Newton hasn't lived up to expectations this year, but his running ability and a matchup against Tampa Bay's shaky pass defense make him a low-end QB1 in Week 17.

Panthers | Cam Newton limited Wednesday

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 14:23:51 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has had a season to forget, completing just below 53% of his passes. Despite his running ability, he's notorious for being one of the most inaccurate quarterbacks in the league. Even so, he has a favorable matchup versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and should be started in Week 17 fantasy title tilts.

Panthers | Cam Newton doesn't do much

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 15:47:18 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) completed just 18 of his 43 pass attempts for 198 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He also rushed eight times for 36 yards. Newton has been bothered by a sore shoulder, but he said Sunday, Dec. 24, that he isn't using that as an excuse for his drop in production.

Fantasy Tip: Newton had a very disappointing end to a disappointing fantasy season for the defending NFL MVP. He'll look to rebound in 2017 and will still be a must-start fantasy option.
