Good chance Cam Newton bounces back
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Granted, Cam Newton hasn't been the most predictable quarterback from week to week, and because his production is largely a function of how often and how effectively he runs the ball, that doesn't figure to change. But after a disappointing showing against the Seahawks in Week 8, he should be in for an easier time Week 9 against the Saints.

After all, the Saints' explosive offense combined with their suspect defense predisposes them to shootouts. Of course, the last time I predicted a shootout for the Panthers Week 7 at Green Bay, it didn't go so well for Newton either, but that matchup wasn't as favorable as this one. The Saints rank 31st against the pass, allowing 289.3 yards per game, and have given up the eighth-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

In a week when high-profile quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Matt Ryan and Jay Cutler are all on bye, I would think someone in a 12-team league would want to start Newton, even if that someone isn't you.

Panthers backup runners do little Week 8
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Panthers backup running backs did little Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Carolina was content to run with Jonathan Stewart and Cam Newton most of the game. Chris Ogbonnaya had just one carry, picking up nine yards. Wideout Jason Avant even managed a carry, but gained just one yard. Darrin Reaves also gained one yard on his only carry.

They'll look for more Week 9 against the Saints.

Panthers QB Cam Newton held without a score
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was held without a score Sunday against the Seahawks.

Newton completed 12 of 22 passes for 171 yards. He did not throw a touchdown, but he was intercepted once during the contest. He also had 24 rushing yards on 12 carries. The Panthers were mostly content to try and run on Seattle during the game. Newton and Jonathan Stewart carried the ball 28 times. When Newton did pass, he didn't have much available. Kelvin Benjamin wound up having a decent game, but had a outmuscle two defenders on a great catch late in the game to get those numbers.

Newton will look for more Week 9 against the Saints.

Cam Newton too hard to predict
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

In Week 8, the Panthers host the Seahawks, who have been a tough matchup for quarterbacks in recent years. Not so much this year, though. The Seahawks rank 16th against the pass, surrendering 239.0 yards per game, and have allowed the fifth-highest passer rating of any team this season. They've also given up the ninth-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

So the matchup really isn't the concern for Cam Newton this week. Cam Newton himself is. After breaking out with 284 passing yards and 107 rushing yards Week 6 at Cincinnati, he had a chance to solidify his place in Fantasy in what figured to be a high-scoring affair Week 7 at Green Bay. But while he once again contributed as a rusher with seven carries for 41 yards -- another sign that his surgically repaired ankle is feeling better -- he wasn't productive enough throwing the ball to satisfy his Fantasy owners.

Of course, the Packers have allowed the lowest quarterback rating of any team this season, so maybe Newton is more the quarterback we saw two weeks ago than not. Unlike Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard, I'd have him in my top 12 for this week, but just barely.

Panthers ready for challenge of facing Seahawks' Richard Sherman
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said he won't be afraid to throw against Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman in Week 8. However, he knows he has to be careful when he challenges one of the league's best cornerbacks.

"If the play is called for me to read it to Richard’s side, by all means I’m going to do it," Newton said, per ESPN. "And I’m going to give each and every receiver an opportunity to make plays.  I’m not going to force it. I’m not going to be an idiot. I’m going to do a great job of protecting the football and be aggressively patient in taking what the defense gives me."

Sherman will likely draw rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin for most of the afternoon Sunday. Benjamin is ready for the challenge.

"You can tell he loves the game," Benjamin said. "He brings the passion to it. He has fun. He talks a lot of smack out there, but this is football. I’m just going to come out there and match his intensity; play fast and be sound in all my assignments."
