Sun, 07 Feb 2016 16:19:44 -0800

Updating a previous story, Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) exited Super Bowl 50 against the Denver Broncos with a left foot injury and is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: If Stewart can't return to the game, look for Fozzy Whittaker and Mike Tolbert to see plenty of work.

Panthers | Cam Newton takes home some hardware

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 19:06:45 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton was named the 2015 NFL Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year Saturday, Feb. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Thanks to his improvements as a passer, Newton went from a QB1 to an elite fantasy option at his position in 2015. With receiver Kelvin Benjamin returning next year, Newton could actually be even better.

Panthers | Mike Tolbert probable for Super Bowl

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 15:03:47 -0800

Carolina Panthers FB Mike Tolbert (knee) practiced in full all week and is probable to face the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

Fantasy Tip: Tolbert will be used sparingly by Carolina in short-yardage and goal-line situations, so he's unlikely to become a huge factor. But if the game is on the line late, he could be a hero with a short conversion, especially if it goes for a score.

Panthers | Cam Newton fourth QB to reach 50 TDs

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 15:01:37 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton reached 50 combined passing and rushing touchdowns in the NFC Championship Game, making him only the fourth quarterback in league history to reach the Super Bowl with that many scores. Surprisingly, the three previous quarterbacks to have at least 50 combined passing and rushing touchdowns entering the Super Bowl all lost the game, by a combined 60 points.

Fantasy Tip: The other quarterbacks are Peyton Manning (60 touchdowns in 2013), Tom Brady (57; 2007) and Dan Marino (55; 1984). The 0-3 record would seem to be a bit of an anomaly at first blush, but each quarterback faced a dominant defense in the Super Bowl during their career year and were turned away. History is working against Newton as he attempts to lead the Panthers to their first championship in team history.

Panthers | Carolina efficient in red zone

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 13:05:23 -0800

The Carolina Panthers and QB Cam Newton scored a touchdown on 68% of their red zone drives during the regular season. Only the Detroit Lions (69%) were better in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: They'll need to keep that trend going in the Super Bowl against the No. 1 defense in the Denver Broncos if they want to win the game. Surprisingly, Denver wasn't that good defending down in the red zone this year, and Newton presents plenty of problems with his legs and his arm near the touchdown stripe.

Panthers | Cam Newton good in play action

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 11:12:51 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton had nine touchdowns on play-action passes this year, which was second to only New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (10). The Denver Broncos allowed just 87 play-action pass attempts this year (second-fewest), 54% completion percentage on those plays (ranked second) and just two touchdowns (tied for second-fewest).

Fantasy Tip: It'll all come back to how well the Panthers can run against a strong run-stopping unit in Denver. If Carolina runs the ball effectively, Newton should have more success on play-action plays in Super Bowl 50.

Panthers | Thomas Davis expected to start

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:50:55 -0800

Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis (forearm) is expected to start in Super Bowl 50 against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Ron Rivera. "Yes, yes I do (expect Davis to start) based on everything I'm seeing from him right now and what the doctors have talked about -- they talk about him every day and we go over everything he's done and what they're seeing. That's been a huge plus." Rivera said. "He actually took a shot in the arm yesterday and said 'I'm fine. That felt pretty good.'"

Panthers | Mike Tolbert has full practice

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 16:33:45 -0800

Carolina Panthers FB Mike Tolbert (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Feb. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Tolbert will be good to go for Super Bowl 50, but he doesn't have much value outside of short-yardage situations. Plus, the Denver Broncos are stingy versus the run.
