    Panthers' Cam Newton: Runs for TD, throws for 183 yards in win

    Newton completed 16-of-27 passes for 183 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions in Thursday's 33-14 rout of the Cowboys, but did score on the ground as part of a 12-carry, 45-yard effort. It's the first game all season in which Newton didn't throw for a touchdown, but the quarterback did well to help the Panthers' offense string together 18 first downs to dominate the time of possession. He still managed to come through with a rushing touchdown and compiled his fourth-highest yardage total of the season on the ground. Although Newton's collective production as a passer and runner was a little light compared to most weeks, fantasy owners are likely to excuse him after he tossed a career-high five touchdowns against Washington just four days earlier.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Career game versus Redskins

    Newton completed 21 of 34 passes for 246 yards and a career-high five touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Redskins. He also gained 16 yards on four carries. The 26-year-old continued his assent Sunday, leading the Panthers to 10-0 on the back of 30 straight points following the first quarter. Newton's five scores on the day gave him a new career-high with 26 total touchdowns this season, including 13 compared to just three turnovers in the last three games. Next up for Carolina will be a Thanksgiving matchup against the Cowboys.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Accounts for two touchdowns in win

    Newton completed 21-of-26 passes for 217 yards with a touchdown, and added 23 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in a typical performance Sunday against the Titans. For the fourth time in the last five games, Newton found the end zone both through the air and on the ground. Newton's ability as a dual-threat quarterback places him firmly in the upper echelon of the game's fantasy signal-callers. He should be an excellent option against the Redskins next week as the Panthers push for a 10-0 start.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Big game in win over Packers

    Newton was excellent in Sunday's win over the Packers, completing 15-of-30 passes for 297 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. He also rushed for 57 yards and another touchdown on nine caries. Facing a tough Green Bay team at home, Newton responded with his best all-around fantasy performance of the season, setting a season-high mark of four total touchdowns. Newton's rushing score was his fifth of the season, and his involvement in that phase of the offense has returned him to the upper tier of fantasy quarterbacks, despite a lack of depth at the skill positions around him. Newton will look to keep things rolling as the Panthers travel to take on the Titans in Week 10.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Leads Panthers to another win

    Newton completed 16-of-35 passes for 248 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Monday night's overtime win against the Colts. He also rushed 10 times for 41 yards and lost a fumble. Newton's performance was hampered by extremely wet conditions in Carolina on Monday night, which inevitably led to some dropped passes from his receivers, along with fumbles and errant throws as well. So while Newton's completion percentage was rather underwhelming, he still found a way to lead the Panthers to yet another victory, utilizing a nice mixture of designed runs to keep the Colts' defense off-balance. When it was all said and done, Newton's 248 passing yards actually marked his third-best total so far this season, and his two second-half touchdown passes bolstered what ultimately was a commendable display considering the conditions.

    Panthers' Cam Newton: Leads comeback at Seattle

    Newton completed 20-of-36 passes for 269 yards, with one touchdown and a pair of interceptions in Sunday's 27-23 comeback win at Seattle. He also ran seven times for 30 yards and a touchdown. Newton looked shaky at times against a tough Seahawks' defense, but led Carolina to a pair of touchdowns in the final four minutes of the game, capped off by a 26-yard score to Greg Olsen with just 36 seconds remaining. The dynamic QB has played well this season, despite having limited weapons at his disposal, although Olsen, who finished with seven receptions for 131 yards, is one of the best receiving tight ends in all of football. Newton will look to stay on a roll at home next week against Philadelphia.

    Panthers QB Cam Newton goes for 124 yards, two TDs in win

    Panthers quarterback Cam Newton completed 11 of 22 passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns, and added 51 rushing yards on 12 carries Sunday in Tampa Bay. Newton wasn't very accurate throwing the ball, but led the Panthers in both carries and rushing yards. Both of his touchdowns came on drives where the Panthers got a short field thanks to Jameis Winston interceptions, thus sweetening an otherwise ugly-looking passing stat line. Newton's dual-threat ability as both a rusher and a passer gives him a myriad of ways to accrue value every week, so an isolated poor performance in one of those two facets is no cause for concern.

    Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart probable for Sunday

    Panthers featured back Jonathan Stewart (leg) is listed as probable for the Week 4 clash against Tampa Bay. After missing the previous two practices, Stewart returned as a full participant Friday. He should be fine to lead the Carolina backfield, but his upside is limited by his lack of contribution in the passing game, not to mention the ample competition for goal-line carries from quarterback Cam Newton and fullback Mike Tolbert.

    Panthers QB Cam Newton explodes for 315 yards in Week 3 win

    Panthers quarterback Cam Newton completed 20 of 31 passes for 315 yards and two touchdowns in a win Sunday over New Orleans. He added 33 yards and another score on the ground. Newton collected his highest passing-yardage total since Week 2 of the 2011 season. Coming into Week 3 action, he had the second-lowest completion percentage and fourth lowest quarterback rating in the league. In those games, tight end Greg Olsen had a total of seven catches for 81 yards. On Sunday, Olsen had eight grabs for 134 yards. With limited weapons on the outside in the absence of Kelvin Benjamin, expect Newton's effectiveness as a passer to be tied to the success of his tight end.

    Panthers QB Cam Newton leads the charge in Week 2 win

    Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was 18 for 37 passing for 195 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's win over the Texans. He also led the team with 76 rushing yards and a touchdown in 10 attempts. While he failed to top 200 yards through the air for the second straight game, Newton came through for his fantasy owners with a strong contribution in the ground game and a pair of long touchdown passes. It is evident that the Panthers plan to run Newton more than the 7.4 times per game he averaged last season, and Sunday showed the type of fantasy return he is capable of providing even with mediocre passing yardage totals. Next up for the Panthers is a divisional showdown in Week 3, when the struggling Saints come to town.
