Panthers | Cam Newton listed as limited

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 13:01:18 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has been on the injury report for the last several weeks but is in no danger of missing the Week 15 game. He has been fairly quiet over the last three weeks in terms of his passing stats but has been making plays with his legs during that span. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues because the Green Bay Packer have struggled at times stopping the pass.

Panthers | Cam Newton has big-time matchup

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 06:55:57 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has a great matchup against the Green Bay Packers in Week 15. The Packers have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game over the last five weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers have allowed 263 passing yards per game, and the 11 touchdowns through the air allowed is tied for most in the league. Newton hasn't thrown for 200 yards in three games, and he has some upside in the latter portion of the QB1 discussion.

Panthers | Cam Newton does it with his feet

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:06:39 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed just 13 of his 25 pass attempts for 137 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings. He also had 11 runs for 70 yards, including a 62-yard scamper setting up the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Newton had his struggles against a good Vikings defense, and the line would've been even worse if not for his long run in the final two minutes. He should find more room to operate against a Packers defense which allowed 21 points to the Browns in an overtime win.

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 12:17:07 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Newton should be able to play against the Minnesota Vikings despite being limited during practice.

Owners may consider benching Newton this week if they have better options because of his tough matchup.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (thumb, shoulder) was able to practice in full Friday, Dec. 1, and he was removed from the injury ahead of the Week 13 game with the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has been on the injury report all season due to his surgically repaired shoulder, rested in mid-week sessions before going full Friday. By now you know the drill. As long as he is active he is a solid low-end QB1 across most fantasy formats, especially for his rushing ability.

Fantasy Tip: Newton will play in what is arguably Carolina's most important game of the season so far versus the New Orleans Saints. Despite his often erratic throws, Newton continues to be a QB1 candidate, thanks in large part to his running ability.

Panthers | Cam Newton logs limited practice

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 13:58:33 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (thumb, shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has toughed out ailments before, so it will be a surprise if he can't suit up for an important divisional tilt with the New Orleans Saints. The Saints have defended the pass well this year, but Newton's legs are what make him dangerous. He remains a solid QB1.

Panthers | Cam Newton limited on Wednesday

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 15:21:05 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (thumb) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 22, due to a right thumb injury.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has been limited in mid-week practices after offseason shoulder surgery, so this is a new ailment. The indications are that it isn't serious and he should be fine for Sunday's game at N.Y. Jets. The Jets are middle of the pack with 229.0 yards per game allowed through the air, but they have allowed 20 passing scores through 10 games with 35 pass play of 20 yards.

Panthers | Cam Newton has monster outing on MNF

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 21:29:44 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 21-of-35 passes for 254 yards and four touchdowns in the team's Week 10 win Monday, Nov. 13, versus the Miami Dolphins. He also added 95 rushing yards on just five carries.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has had an up-and-down year, but it's games like this one that prove he still might be in the upper echelon of NFL quarterbacks when it comes to fantasy football. The former No. 1 overall draft pick was pretty much able to do whatever he wanted, and with that potential on any given week, he's still very much a legitimate QB1. With the Panthers cruising right now, don't be surprised if Newton keeps it going.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Saturday, Nov. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 10. The Panthers did not hold a practice Saturday, so his practice designation is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has been dealing with his shoulder injury for the entire season but should be ready to play this week. He has one passing touchdown and three interceptions over the last three games but also has a rushing touchdown during that span. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues and could be benched if owners have better options.

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 11:46:40 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 9.

He has been held to under 250 yards passing in each of the last four games but has rushed for at least 50 yards in three of those games. He can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback this week but is not a must-start option like in the past.

Panthers | Cam Newton runs for 86 yards, TD

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 14:18:46 -0800

Carolina Panthers WR Cam Newton completed just 13 of his 24 passes for 137 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons, but he was able to run for a game-high 86 yards with a touchdown on nine attempts.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers probably don't want Newton leading the team in rushing, but fantasy owners are pretty happy with the outcome. The highlight of the day was a 34-yard tuck and run in the first quarter to jump-start the offense early. He'll look for better results against the visiting Dolphins on Monday night in Week 10.

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 12:10:11 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 3, but is not on the injury report for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Newton is looking to bounce back from two disappointing performances but will be facing a solid Atlanta Falcons defense. He can be a low-end No. 1 in deeper leagues because of some of the quarterbacks on bye this week.

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 11:51:49 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Newton should be able to play in Week 9 but has struggled over the last several games. He has thrown two touchdowns and six interceptions over the last three games and has only two 300-yard games in 2017. He could still be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback this week because there are six teams on bye.

Panthers | Cam Newton draws limited status

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 13:49:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has strung together three abysmal performances in a row, throwing six interceptions to just two touchdowns in those three games. To make matters worse, Newton lost his No.1 receiver this week as Kelvin Benjamin was traded to the Buffalo Bills. He does still have Devin Funchess, Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel, among others, to throw to, but Newton is no longer a viable QB1 start.

Panthers | Cam Newton leads team in rushing

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 13:57:37 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 18 of his 32 pass attempts for 154 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he had a team-high 44 rushing yards on 11 attempts.

Fantasy Tip: It's never a great thing when Newton leads the offense in rushing, as that means the attack wasn't terribly balanced and he didn't receive much help on the ground. Jonathan Stewart did score, but he was bottled up most of the afternoon. The team will look for more balanced production in a key NFC South game at home against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 9.

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 16:00:40 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Newton is coming off two disappointing games where he threw five interceptions and only one touchdown during that span. He will have most of his weapons available in the passing game and will be facing a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that has struggled against the pass. He can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues this week.

Panthers | Cam Newton owns stellar numbers vs. TB

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 20:41:15 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has a 99.7 QB Rating for his career against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, his second-highest such mark opposite an opponent whom he's faced more than two times. Overall, he's completed 154 of 241 passes (63.9 percent) in those games for 2,068 yards, to go with 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions. In addition, he's registered 73 career rush attempts for 348 yards versus the Bucs.

Fantasy Tip: No other NFC team has allowed more passing yards per game this season than Tampa Bay, so Newton will be on track to churn out a monstrous performance for his owners in Week 8. True, the former No. 1 overall pick is coming off arguably his worst game of the campaign against the Bears, but that should only further motivate an angry Newton to deliver on Sunday opposite a division foe.

Panthers | Cam Newton limited Wednesday

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 12:11:00 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has had two games to forget the last two weeks. He has thrown five interceptions to only one touchdown and has only averaged 225 passing yards in those contests. This is the week to get back on track, though, as Newton and the Panthers take on one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He's a fine QB1 on paper.

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 11:42:10 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Newton is coming off a disappointing Week 6 performance but has thrown for at least 300 yards in two of the last three games. He may be missing a few of his pass catchers this week but could still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues against the Chicago Bears.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart needs to be more involved in the offense, according to QB Cam Newton.

Fantasy Tip: Carolina's ground game is a mess right now, and the Panthers are currently tied for 29th in yards per carry. Stewart is averaging just 2.9 yards per carry, and he has 17 rushing yards over the last two games combined. You are better off benching him until he shows signs of life.

Panthers | Cam Newton throws three picks

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 21:08:11 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 28 of 52 passes for 239 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 12. He also rushed 11 times for 71 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't a great night for Newton, who was picked three times, had another erased on a penalty, and authored a World Cup style flop to draw a personal foul. He also took a pounding and was off target, completing just 53.8 percent of his throws with a long of 20 yards. On the plus side, Newton's legs produced 71 yards and a score, which salvaged an otherwise disappointing night. He'll have 10 days to heal up before traveling to face the Bears where he should be considered a solid QB1.

Fantasy Tip: Newton faces a favorable matchup at home, so start him as you normally would. After a slow start Newton has picked up the pace and been producing like a bona fide QB1 for his fantasy owners again.
