Panthers | Cam Newton checked for concussion

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 10:18:53 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (head) was checked for a possible concussion in the first quarter of the team's Week 11 game but was cleared to play.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has been hit a lot this season but will have a week to rest since the team has a Week 12 bye. Newton is no longer an every week starting option since he has thrown at least one interception in each of his last seven games.

Panthers | Cam Newton playing hurt

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 17:13:58 -0800

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot, ankle) admitted that he has been playing hurt after saying he was fine following the team's embarrassing Week 10 loss Monday, Nov. 10. "Hurt is hurt," Newton said. "If you're asking me am I hurt right now? Yeah, I'm hurt. I haven't felt 100 percent in a long time. Is that going to hinder anything or that's been my excuse of why we're on a losing streak? No." Newton hasn't posted a quarterback rating higher than his career average of 85.4 since Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Well then. Newton didn't look right and wasn't his explosive self while trying to escape the pocket against the Philadelphia Eagles. Even though he has a nice matchup against the Atlanta Falcons this weekend, it's hard to justify spending $7,500 on him at FantasyScore when he's not 100 percent healthy. Look elsewhere.

Panthers | Cam Newton not injured

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 14:46:26 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot, ankles), didn't injure his foot or reinjure his ankles in Week 10 Monday, Nov. 10, according to head coach Ron Rivera. "I'm not sure where all that came from. But put it to rest," Rivera said. "He said it at his press conference after the game, he's fine." Newton didn't look right in the loss, and he struggled to accelerate to avoid sacks. He finished the game going 18-for-30 for 195 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Newton's offensive line did a terrible job of protecting him against the Philadelphia Eagles. It's great news that Newton isn't injured, but even with a nice matchup in store against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 11, it's hard to trust him for a FantasyScore price of $6,800.

Panthers | Cam Newton looked tentative

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 09:33:33 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton didn't look right in the team's Week 10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, Nov. 10, looking slow, tentative and weak in the effort. Newton finished the game with four turnovers in the rout.

Fantasy Tip: In Newton's defense, his offensive line put up a pitiful performance and didn't give him much of a chance at all. However, he still didn't look right, and he's definitely beat up physically, as he was seen grimacing at various moments during the night. It's hard to trust Newton as your FantasyScore quarterback right now.

Panthers | Cam Newton has another injury

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 07:06:05 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle, foot) is nursing a right foot injury, which could be the result of compensating for the lingering soreness in his left ankle.

Fantasy Tip: Newton ($6,800; 13.6% of your cap) has a great matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, but at this point you really can't play him on FantasyScore.

Panthers | No progress for Cam Newton extension

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 11:02:14 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and the team have made no progress in talks about a contract extension since discussing it before the season. Both sides hope to have something done in the offseason, however.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has been pretty bad in recent weeks for his fantasy football owners. Consider Newton a midrange to weak QB1 and play him accordingly based on the matchups.

Panthers | Cam Newton struggles again

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 10:56:43 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton had the worst statistical game of his career in the Week 9 loss to the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Oct. 30, completing just 10 of 28 passes for 151 yards with no touchdowns and one interception (he also ran a TD in). Newton posted career lows in completions, completion percentage (35.7) and passer rating (39.4). He was sacked four times and also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has been bad of late, reminding owners that he's a midrange QB1 on a week-to-week basis. He can make plays with his legs, but if his offensive line can't protect him, it won't be pretty, like we saw last night.

Panthers | Cam Newton takes big step

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 06:40:54 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) rushed 17 times for 107 yards in Week 6 Sunday, Oct. 12. Head coach Ron Rivera said Newton was pretty close to being fully back from offseason ankle surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has been heavily limited all season, but he exploded in this game and at least attempted to run the ball. Newton remains a weak QB1 on FantasyScore most weeks with some upside.

Panthers | No extension talks yet for Cam Newton

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 00:54:03 -0700

No talks on a contract extension have been held for Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton, but the team was made clear Newton has no interest in a "pay as you go" deal like those signed by Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton or San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick. Signing Newton long-term will likely mean a full guarantee of over $50 million and no ability to easily cut Newton after any given season. Newton's management also wants to wait and see what type of deal Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson gets.

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 13:05:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (hand) was banged up late in the fourth quarter of the Week 6 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He appeared to bang his throwing arm or thumb on an interception, and was being checked by a trainer on the sidelines.
