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 | Cam Newton won't be limited

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 14:09:15 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) will not be running a limited offense due to his rib injury. The team will still run the zone read.

Fantasy Tip: While this should be considered good news, Newton is still a risky Week 1 play because of questions at wide receiver as well as his health. Be cautious on draft day if Newton is still on the board.

Panthers | Cam Newton will be ready

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 09:33:16 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (rib) said he fully expects to be ready to play Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Newton has a little over a week to recover from his rib injury, which should be enough time. Owners probably should not consider using Newton in Week 1 because of the questions at wide receiver, and he is facing a solid Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense.

Panthers | Cam Newton has fractured rib

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 13:54:46 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (rib) has a hairline fracture in one of his ribs and will not play in the final preseason game next week. Head coach Ron Rivera said he thinks Newton will be ready for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Newton is still a low-end QB1. However, the injury could become more severe with a certain amount of contact. Be cautious when drafting him.

Panthers | Cam Newton undergoes X-rays

Sat, 23 Aug 2014 09:11:35 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) suffered a back contusion during the third preseason game, but X-rays on the back came back negative, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Rivera is confident that Newton will be fine.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Newton suffered a minor injury during the game, but there is a chance he sits out the final preseason game. Newton probably will be a low-end starting quarterback in most leagues because of the question marks the team has at wide receiver.

Panthers | Cam Newton not at 100 percent

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 14:20:50 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle), who is expected to play a quarter in his first preseason action against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Aug. 17, said he still is at less than 100 percent healthy. "The thing that keeps coming back up is, 'Keep treating it. Treat it when it feels good, treat it when it feels bad. Don't be that guy that only treats it when it's nagging. Try to stay ahead of the pain,'" Newton said. "That's what I've been doing, and it's been paying off." Head coach Ron Rivera said the team will not run any read-option plays against the Chiefs this weekend. Newton took part in every drill in practice Thursday, Aug. 14, and Rivera was encouraged by Newton's performance in the hurry-up offense.

Fantasy Tip: Newton probably isn't far off 100 percent health, but he's taking things slowly and being cautious in the preseason. He remains a risky and overvalued quarterback in drafts this year. Without much to work with at receiver, Newton's numbers could easily suffer drastically in 2014.

Panthers | Cam Newton expected to play first quarter of preseason game

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 12:49:21 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) is expected to play in the first quarter of the team's second preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect a lot in Newton's return to action. Getting him back on the field and in a game situation with his new wide receivers is a good thing for all involved. There are still a lot of questions surrounding this offense that could hurt Newton's fantasy football value in 2014.

Panthers | Cam Newton running read option in practice

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 09:49:21 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) tucked the ball on a read option in team drills Sunday, Aug. 10, and also made a nice run to the right side after being cleared to play in the team's second preseason game this weekend. Head coach Ron Rivera said Newton and the other starts will likely play longer than normal in the second preseason game because they play on the road against the New England Patriots five days later.

Fantasy Tip: It's great to see Newton with the leash off in training camp, and barring any setbacks, he should be good to go for Week 1 coming off offseason ankle surgery. Newton's legs set him apart from a lot of other quarterbacks in fantasy football, but you have to wonder if the lack of receiving playmakers will hurt his value as a QB1 in 2014.

Panthers | Cam Newton cleared to play

Sun, 10 Aug 2014 19:07:36 -0700

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) has been cleared to play in the second preseason game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Fantasy Tip: Newton appears to be close to recovering from his offseason ankle surgery. He may not receive a lot of time in the preseason game, but his workload likely would increase in the next game. He should be seen as a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
