Carolina Panthers news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Position flexibility and versatility are the name of the game with McCaffrey, who figures to line up all over the field and be heavily involved in the running, passing and return games. He's well positioned to flourish as a rookie and will draw a lot of interest early in drafts with his value spiking in PPR formats.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey will have an immediate role as both a runner and a receiver in Carolina. He is no worse than a flex play as a rookie, and he'll have even more value in PPR formats. In rookie drafts, he should be in consideration for the top pick.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey should have a solid role in the offense right away with the Panthers because of his ability to catch the ball. He probably will also receive a few carries each game. McCaffrey will be a valuable pick in point-per-reception leagues because of his receiving skills.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars have been two of the most linked teams to Fournette. Apparently the Panthers are comfortable with waiting if they aren't able to take the star prospect. If that's the case, Jonathan Stewart could very well remain the primary running back in Carolina. Even at 30 years old, Stewart would warrant RB2 consideration in that case.

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.

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.

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.

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.
