Panthers | Cam Newton may miss several weeks

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 09:52:00 -0700

The Carolina Panthers fear that QB Cam Newton (ribs) could miss three to four weeks because of his injured ribs. Newton can change the team's mind if he can show he can protect his ribs while playing. At this point, the team plans to start QB Derek Anderson Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation for any updates on Newton's condition. FantasyScore owners should avoid using Newton this week. Anderson should not be an option in fantasy leagues at any point.

Panthers | Cam Newton hopes to play

Thu, 04 Sep 2014 11:57:59 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) said he expects to play Week 1 but will allow the coaches and trainers to determine his availability. Newton was able to do some throwing during practice Thursday, Sept. 4, and said it does not hurt when he throws.

Fantasy Tip: Derek Anderson likely would get the start Week 1 if Newton sits out but should not be used in any fantasy league.

Panthers | Cam Newton expects to play

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 21:47:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) said Wednesday, Aug. 27, that he will be ready for the regular season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite fracturing his ribs last week. "There's no doubt in my mind," Newton said.

Fantasy Tip: If Newton is unable to play, Derek Anderson would likely get the start. For now, Newton is a risky play for the regular season opener, and he could easily have a setback if he is hit the wrong way in Week 1. Fantasy owners should try to have plenty of depth on hand if they have already drafted Newton, or plan to do so.

Panthers | May have one QB

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 05:57:18 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson's wife is expected to go into labor any day, and he could miss the final preseason game this week. QB Joe Webb would be the only healthy quarterback able to play in the final preseason game. Head coach Ron Rivera said the team has two unnamed options to serve as the emergency quarterback on the roster.

Panthers | Derek Anderson next in line

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 10:33:32 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Derek Anderson will start against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the team's final preseason game, and he'll be the starter in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if QB Cam Newton (rib cage) isn't ready by then. Newton's injury increases the likelihood that the team will keep QB Joe Webb on roster, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Carolina faces an undervalued Bucs defense in Week 1. If Anderson were to start, he shouldn't be considered in any leagues.

Panthers | Cam Newton inactive

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 16:46:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) was inactive for the preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 8, as expected. QB Derek Anderson started in Newton's absence.

Fantasy Tip: The injury does not sound to be serious, but it is still bad news because it is one less game situation for Newton to work with his new stable of receivers.

Panthers | Cam Newton will work with wide receivers

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 11:22:13 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton will work with his wide receivers before training camp gets underway to try to get on the same page after missing time due to an ankle issue. "It's been more difficult because Cam's coming off an ankle injury and he had to get surgery, so we couldn't throw with him as much as we would like," Panthers receiver Tiquan Underwood said. "I know we're all going to get together next week in Charlotte. We're just going to try to speed up the process. We're all going to throw -- Derek Anderson, Cam Newton, Joe Webb, Matt Blanchard and all the receivers -- just to work on timing and get that down pat before camp."

Fantasy Tip: Newton and his wide receivers are behind after not getting much work in during the offseason program. This is a good start to help get back up to speed before the full squad reports at the end of the month. Newton remains a fringe QB1 option for fantasy players thanks to his questionable receiving targets.
