Player Outlook

Has the time come to consider Newton as a potential bust? He followed up his MVP season with pretty lousy numbers that included career-worst marks in completion percentage (52.9 percent) and yards per attempt (6.9), along with his third season with less than 20 passing touchdowns. Of more concern are his dwindling rushing totals, including career-lows in attempts (90), yards (359) and touchdowns (five). And we're not done yet -- he lost deep-ball receiver Ted Ginn to free agency, his head coach doesn't want him to run as much and thinks Newton lost some confidence. For the cherry on top, Newton had offseason surgery for a torn rotator cuff that might delay his involvement in training camp. Other than all that, Cam's just fine! Unfortunately it's starting to look like Newton's 2015 MVP season was an anomaly compared to his other five seasons, where he had fewer than 25 passing touchdowns in each. If we're to rely on Newton for Fantasy, and if the Panthers don't want to rely on him as much as a runner, then he'll have to seriously improve as a passer. We don't see that happening and given the depth at the quarterback position this fall, we wouldn't draft Newton with a meaningful pick. Expect someone else in your league -- not you -- to draft Newton with a pick before Round 10, however.

  • Panthers' Cam Newton: Limited to begin camp
    By RotoWire Staff

    Newton (shoulder) will be limited at the start of training camp, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports. The Panthers reported to their training camp digs at Wofford College in South Carolina on Tuesday. During an introductory news conference, head coach Ron Rivera relayed Newton's limitations, plus mentioned that the quarterback currently rings in at 246 pounds after playing "as high as 260" in the past. More pressing, though, is the state of Newton's right shoulder, which underwent surgery to repair a partial tear of the rotator cuff on March 30. In advance of training camp, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Newton started throwing to his teammates again, but his reps will be capped under the direction of the team's training and medical staff, according to Tiffany Blackmon of NFL Network.

  • Newton (shoulder) has resumed throwing to his teammates, cementing the expectation that he'll be ready to do so when training camp begins, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Newton, who underwent surgery on his right shoulder back in March, began throwing for the first time since his operation nearly a month ago. While those tosses were stationary and to a team trainer, the Panthers' quarterback has now advanced to working with his usual targets ahead of the start of camp July 26. Although Newton is expected to be limited early on as Carolina rightfully errs on the side of caution, it's encouraging to hear that he's making such strong progress.

  • According to coach Ron Rivera, Newton (shoulder) will have his rushing opportunities carefully managed by the Panthers this season, Sirius XM NFL Radio reports. Newton underwent surgery in March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder, and although he's on track to be cleared to throw to teammates when the Panthers open training camp, the team will understandably want to restrict his exposure to hits this season. As part of that initiative, Carolina overhauled its group of playmakers this offseason, most notably adding running back Christian McCaffrey and utility wideout Curtis Samuel with its first two draft picks. Along with being judicious in how Newton is used in the running game, the Panthers aim to protect him through passing plays designed to get the ball out of his hands early. Combined, those considerations will hopefully enable the still-recovering Newton to withstand the rigors of the upcoming campaign.

  • Panthers' Cam Newton: Begins throwing again
    By RotoWire Staff

    Newton threw Monday for the first time since having offseason shoulder surgery, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports. Newton tossed 45 passes in total, throwing to Carolina's head athletic trainer from three different positions. The session took place in the Panthers' locker room, an indication that Newton will proceed carefully in his recovery from the shoulder issue before taking the field again. Following surgery on his partially torn right rotator cuff in late March, the quarterback said he's yet to regain his full range of motion, but Newton admitted it felt good to finally be able to throw again. In order to shake some of the stiffness in his arm, Newton is scheduled to continue one-on-one throwing sessions for the next four weeks, and if all goes according to plan, he'll be cleared to throw to teammates the day the Panthers open training camp on July 26.

  • Newton (shoulder) is not expected to throw during this week's minicamp, NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon reports. Newton was originally expected to begin throwing at the Panthers' mandatory minicamp this week, but the team appears to be playing it safe with their quarterback's rehab process. Newton, who underwent surgery in late March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff, will likely stick to individual work on the side during minicamp. He remains on track for a return at the start of training camp in late July, but backup Derek Anderson will work with the first team in practice this week.
