Panthers | Cam Newton taking it easy in practice

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 21:09:25 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) isn't running outside of the pocket during training camp, but he has been able to plant in the pocket to make throws without any complications.

Fantasy Tip: Newton should be off and running again when the regular season rolls around, and while running the ball increases the chances he will be injured, his fantasy value is tied directly to his ability to make plays with his legs. Newton has QB1 upside, but given the injury risk, it is safer to draft him as a QB2.

Panthers | Cam Newton not 100 percent

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 17:38:20 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) said his ankle is not 100 percent at this point, but it is getting better each day.

Fantasy Tip: Newton could be limited for the foreseeable future because of the ankle injury, but it does not appear to be a major thing at this point. Owners should consider Newton as a low-end No. 1 quarterback that comes with some risk because of the team's wide receivers.

Panthers | Cam Newton cleared

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 09:35:00 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) was cleared for practice, according to general manager David Gettleman.

Fantasy Tip: It is good news that Newton will be out there for the start of training camp with all the new faces at wide receiver. Still, with the questions regarding that receiving group, and his own health, Newton should be considered a QB2 for fantasy players.

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.

Panthers | Cam Newton gets praise from teammate

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 10:26:08 -0700

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen praised QB Cam Newton. "I don't know if there is another QB in the league that does what he does...he has really grown," Newton said.

Fantasy Tip: The big question with Newton will be his health after undergoing an ankle procedure in the offseason. If he is healthy going into training camp, he should be considered a QB2 going into the season.

Panthers | Cam Newton ahead of schedule

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 11:57:56 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) participated in seven-on-seven drills for the first time since his ankle surgery in March. He's about a month ahead of schedule, as he was initially supposed to start drills at training camp in July. Newton said he's excited to return, but admits he's not at 100 percent. Head coach Ron Rivera said Newton made good decisions and the right reads, but didn't get the ball where he needed to, adding that accuracy will come with time as Newton becomes healthier. Additionally, the team plans to limit his runs in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: This is certainly a promising sign for Newton and fantasy players. Still, no matter how well Newton is progressing, he doesn't exactly have a deep supporting cast and should be considered a QB2 going into the season.
