Panthers | Cam Newton still on track in his rehab

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 12:29:06 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) did not throw during minicamp, but his recovery from shoulder surgery is still on track. Head coach Ron Rivera said last week he expected Newton to throw, but clarified that statement this week.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera initially said following the surgery that his quarterback would start throwing 12 weeks after the procedure, which is next week. Newton's fantasy star is dimming a bit as the Panthers want to reduce their reliance on his running ability, although he still figures to generate more fantasy value on the ground than most quarterbacks for at least another year or two. He should be considered a mid- to low-end QB in most fantasy leagues in 2017.

Panthers | No throwing for Cam Newton

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 15:07:05 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will not throw during the minicamp this week, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Newton will not throw until training camp and probably will be limited during practice so his surgically repaired shoulder can heal. Newton will have more weapons to work with in the passing game this season and will still be a threat to run. Owners in all leagues should consider him a No. 1 quarterback as long as he is healthy.

Panthers | Cam Newton will throw on the side

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 12:32:14 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is expected to throw off to the side at next week's minicamp, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Newton is ahead of schedule in his rehab process, but it's unclear just how far away he is from being fully recovered from his shoulder surgery. It's not likely that he'll see much preseason action, but he remains a QB1 candidate as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks.

Panthers | Cam Newton ahead of schedule

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 10:24:35 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is ahead of schedule with his rehab and expected to throw on the side during Carolina's three-day minicamp next week, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Newton will work directly with trainer Ryan Vermillion, and it is unknown how much he will throw.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has obvious ability to dominate but a fair amount of risk will be assumed by prospective drafters. Returning from rotator cuff surgery is no joke. The veteran is a midrange QB1 in most situations.

Panthers | Cam Newton on track

Mon, 08 May 2017 17:02:54 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is making progress in his recovery from shoulder surgery and is on schedule for the regular season, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

Fantasy Tip: Newton probably will be sidelined until at least training camp because of his shoulder and could be limited during camp and preseason as well. He should be ready for the start of the regular season and will be looking to improve on his 2016 season. He will have more weapons to work with the passing game this season and should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Panthers | Cam Newton on track for camp

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 12:36:45 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is "on schedule'' to be ready for training camp after having arthroscopic shoulder surgery on March 30, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

Fantasy Tip: Newton had a miserable season by his standards last season, although his offensive line and the bum shoulder didn't help him much in that regard. While a bounce-back year could be in order, the primary focus of the Panthers' offseason has been to cut down on the amount of punishment Newton receives, which should mean a decline in his number of rushing attempts. If that happens, Newton becomes more of a midrange fantasy QB1 instead of the elite one he was in 2015.

Panthers | Cam Newton prioritized leadership

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 19:54:07 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton said he played injured last year because he felt it was his duty as team captain.

Fantasy Tip: Newton was a perennial top-five fantasy option at his position prior to last year's injury-plagued campaign. If he slips in drafts, he could end up being a good value pick in 2017.

Panthers | Cam Newton on track for training camp

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 16:50:21 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) doesn't expect to be allowed to throw until late-June, but remains on track to be "all-clear" by the time training camp opens a month later.

Fantasy Tip: Newton will be seeking to follow up a season in which he was one of the biggest disappointments in all of fantasy football. Fortunately, it looks like he'll at least be healthy from the onset, and considering how he's descended draft boards everywhere, he could be a good value pick later on for owners.

Panthers | Cam Newton to be restricted at OTAs

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 20:00:34 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will be restricted from throwing throughout organized team activities, but he'll be able to participate in the two weeks of strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation that makes up Phase 1. He should also be able to take part in Phases 2 and 3, with the exception of anything that might put stress on his right shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Newton's coming off a season in which he registered by far the lowest quarterback rating of his career -- 75.8 -- while also rushing for a career-low 359 yards. In other words, he was one of the biggest disappointments in all of fantasy football last year. Even though he'll also be trying to come back from surgery, owners might be able to view him as a value pick later on in drafts, but he certainly no longer warrants an early selection like in years past.

Panthers | Surgery goes well for Cam Newton

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 10:15:39 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) underwent successful shoulder surgery on his partially torn rotator cuff Thursday, March 30.

Fantasy Tip: If Newton fully heals in time he could be ready to participate in training camp, but don't be surprised if he doesn't see much preseason action. Newton is coming off a season to forget -- arguably the worst of his six-year career. As such, drafting him as more than a low-end QB1 is ill-advised.
