Player Outlook

Cam Newton proved last year that he's one of the better Fantasy quarterbacks in the league. Now he'll get the chance to improve under the guidance of veteran offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Newton could use it -- he has one season with 25-plus touchdown passes and one with more than 4,000 passing yards. If Turner figures out a way for Newton to become more efficient while also utilizing his rushing skills, we could wind up with another MVP-caliber season. Newton will have to fend off injuries and develop more consistency because he has posted six games with 20-plus Fantasy points in each of his past two seasons. Adding rookie D.J. Moore to his receiving corps will help. While it's not a cinch Newton will come through in either of those categories, the reality is that his Round 7 price tag eliminates much of the risk. If you can take him then, particularly after the likes of Deshaun Watson and Drew Brees, then you're doing fine.

  • Panthers' Cam Newton: Plays two drives
    By RotoWire Staff

    Newton completed six of nine passes for 84 yards in Thursday's 28-23 preseason win over the Bills in the preseason opener. Newton also rushed once for three yards while leading the Panthers offense on its first two drives. During his brief stint, Newton twice found Christian McCaffrey for first downs, and he connected with Jarius Wright on a 28-yard play to set up McCaffrey's two-yard rushing touchdown. After a productive first performance, Newton will now gear up for next Friday's meeting with the Dolphins.

  • Panthers' Cam Newton: Deems himself healthy
    By RotoWire Staff

    Newton (knee) declared himself healthy during a media session Saturday. "It was very big for me making the proper steps this offseason knowing that I'm full go," he said. "My body feels great." Newton has participated in all drills since training camp opened Thursday, but his initial face-to-face meeting with the media was delayed Friday because his treatment leaked into the time allotted to talk with players, per Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer. There was no clarification on what exactly was getting treated, but Newton emerged from the Panthers' wild-card loss in January with ligament and cartilage damage in his right knee, which impacted his workload somewhat during the offseason program. Now back to 100 percent, he's focusing on building his rapport with a revised supporting cast, with Torrey Smith, Jarius Wright and rookie D.J. Moore joining holdovers Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen and Christian McCaffrey.

  • Panthers' Cam Newton: Taking part in OTAs
    By RotoWire Staff

    Newton (knee) is throwing passes Tuesday at the start of OTAs, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. Newton suffered ligament and cartilage damage in his right knee during a Jan. 7 playoff loss to the Saints, but he never left the game and finished with 349 passing yards and two touchdowns. Despite avoiding surgery, there was some concern Newton would be limited or absent from team activities this offseason. While it isn't clear if he's back to 100 percent, his participation in OTAs would seem to put him on track for full clearance at some point before the start of training camp. Newton will be playing with a new-look offense that added running back C.J. Anderson and wideouts Torrey Smith, Jarius Wright and D.J. Moore (a first-round pick) during the offseason. The team did suffer a big loss with the departure of guard Andrew Norwell, along with smaller losses in running back Jonathan Stewart, tight end Ed Dickson and receiver Russell Shepard. Meanwhile, Norv Turner is replacing Mike Shula as Carolina's offensive coordinator, with the stated goal of getting Newton's completion percentage into the 60s for the first time since 2013, ESPN.com's David Newton reports.

  • Panthers' Cam Newton: Avoids surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Newton (knee) avoided offseason surgery, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. Newton injured his right knee during an opening-round playoff loss to the Saints, and while it didn't prevent him from finishing out the contest and throwing for 349 yards, an MRI the next day revealed ligament damage, cartilage damage and extensive swelling in the knee. The Panthers haven't provided substantial information since that time, other than confirming that Newton avoided surgery. It won't come as any surprise if he's limited or absent when the team begins its offseason program in mid-to-late April.

  • Newton suffered a knee injury during the Panthers' playoff loss to the Saints that will require offseason rehab, but no surgery, ESPN.com reports. Per Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer, an MRI of Newton's knee the day after the Panthers' wild-card loss to the Saints revealed ligament and cartilage damage, as well as "very extensive swelling." This injury nugget surfaced in conjunction with the league's determination that the Panthers did not did not violate the NFL's concussion protocol relative to their assessment of Newton during the Jan. 7 tilt. In addition to his knee issue, Newton also suffered an eye injury during the contest, but according to the league's findings, he did not sustain a concussion. In any case, the QB will now have the entire offseason to recover from his aches and pains, though it will be worth monitoring his status once the Panthers resume on-field activities in order to see if he's past his knee woes at that time.
