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: Throwing in team drills
    By RotoWire Staff

    Newton (shoulder) threw passes in team drills for the first time in 14 days at Sunday's practice, ESPN.com's David Newton reports. Limited to individual work and position drills the past two weeks, Newton took a step forward four days after the Panthers' preseason opener. It's still unclear if he'll see action during the exhibition schedule, but the team is counting on his availability for Week 1 in San Francisco.

  • Panthers' Cam Newton: Throwing again Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Newton (shoulder) is throwing to teammates in position drills Friday, ESPN's David Newton reports. Newton hadn't thrown for 12 days, and although doctors were satisfied with his rehab progress, news that he's back airing it out provides more tangible reassurance. Coming off March surgery on his shoulder, it remains to be seen if Newton will feature at all this preseason, but his ability to practice could enable him to be ready for the regular season even if he doesn't take the field prior to Week 1.

  • Though Newton (shoulder) didn't participate in throwing drills, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site relays that the QB tossed passes to a teammate off to the side during Tuesday's practice session. Per the report, Newton increased the velocity on some of his throws to banged-up wideout Curtis Samuel on Tuesday. While that's a positive step for Carolina's franchise signal-caller, coach Ron Rivera confirmed that Newton will not play in Wednesday's preseason opener against the Texans.

  • Newton's (shoulder) doctors are pleased with his progress through rehab, despite the fact that he didn't throw during practices last week, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Newton threw for the first time in a week Sunday, when he played catch with a team trainer. Despite the time he took off to rest his surgically repaired shoulder, Newton seems to be right on schedule with his rehab. It remains to be seen whether Newton will return to the field to throw to teammates this week, but the Panthers still have ample time to increase his workload ahead of Week 1.

  • Panthers' Cam Newton: Does light throwing Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Newton (shoulder) threw on the side with a team trainer during Sunday's practice and head coach Ron Rivera said the quarterback felt good afterwards, David Newton of ESPN reports. While Newton has not been able to get on the practice field and throw to a teammate in a week, his ability to do any throwing at all Sunday comes as an encouraging sign for the 2015 MVP. As the start of the regular season approaches, expect the Panthers to continue to ease their star quarterback back into the swing of things, with Derek Anderson continuing to lead first-team reps in practice while Newton is limited.
