2019 RTSports Outlook

Newton missed the last two games because of a shoulder injury, which seemed to hamper him the second half of the season. His numbers dipped after a fast start to the season. Newton failed to score a touchdown each of his last two games but had multiple scores 11 of his first 12 games. He was super consistent much of the season before his late-season issues. Newton was still 14th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring despite missing two games. Newton is the focal point of the Panthers offense and should hold that role once again this season. Newton has a huge arm and can make big-time plays with his legs. He shows some immaturity at times, especially when dealing with the press. He will force some passes at times but is pretty accurate throwing the ball. He throws a good deep ball and runs as well as any quarterback in the game. Newton has at least four rushing touchdowns every season in the NFL. He averages 30 total touchdowns per season for his career.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Newton has been a top-five fantasy quarterback two of the past four seasons. He is capable of the huge fantasy season. Consider him a top-10 fantasy quarterback and quality weekly starter. He is a consistent option, especially because of his production running the ball. Newton can throw for around 3,600 yards, rush for around 600 and score 30 or so touchdowns.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton's fantasy value is tied to his ability to continue rushing, along with the recovery from the shoulder surgery he underwent in the offseason. Newton is surrounded by the best receiving talent that he has had in his career in the NFL. Christian McCaffrey broke out last season and established himself as arguably the best pass catching back in the league, as well as an effective rusher. Greg Olsen is aging, but if fit he will continue to be a big body in the middle of the field. The Panthers also have a great dynamic duo of wide receivers with D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel, who both impressed last season. Samuel missed his rookie season through injury, and so in effect, the Panthers had two rookie receivers on the field last season, and both players should be able to take a step forward. Surrounded with that level of talent with the likely rushing production that Newton typically produces makes him a constant darkhorse to be one of the highest scoring fantasy quarterbacks. However, it is important to keep an eye on injury news in the offseason, given Newton's shoulder surgery in the offseason. Newton wasn't able to throw in OTAs, although coach Ron Rivera stated to the media that he missed time due to personal reasons.

Panthers' QB Cam Newton passed for 333 yards on 25-of-51 but no touchdowns in Thursday's loss against the Buccaneers.

Sep 13 12:43pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton appears to be struggling due to a lack of football conditioning following off-season shoulder surgery and a preseason foot injury, in the opinion of one veteran NFL reporter.

Fantasy Spin: Newton has only totaled 27.9 fantasy points in two games, and most alarming is his lack of rushing production with minus-2 yards on five attempts so far. Perhaps the extended break (11 days) before Week 3 will do Newton some good, but strongly consider other fantasy QB options until Cam can show some strides in live action.

From TheHuddle

Sep 13 2:00am ET

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton went 24-for-50, racking up 324 yards in the loss to the Bucs on Thursday night. Though the veteran wasn't able to throw for a touchdown, his accumulation of yards through the air was enough to satisfy the fantasy managers who kept him in their lineups despite his average showings against Tampa throughout the years. With two losses in the books for the Panthers, Newton and company will hit the road for a showdown with the Cardinals in Week 3.

From RotoBaller

Sep 13 1:23am ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 25 of 51 passes for 333 yards during the team's Week 2 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Newton also ran twice for no yards and lost a fumble.

Fantasy Spin: There's something wrong with Newton. Whether that problem is physical or mental is unclear. The team claims the foot injury he suffered in the preseason is a non-factor and that he's recovered from offseason shoulder surgery, but anyone that watched Thursday night saw a bevy of wildly inaccurate throws and a striking lack of athleticism -- it should be a red flag that the team didn't call Newton's number on 4th and 1 with the game on the line. This is eight straight losses for Newton as a starter, and four in a row without a TD pass. At this point it's time to strongly consider moving Newton out of your starting lineup, assuming you have a competent backup, and see if he can shake off this malaise.

From TheHuddle

Sep 12 12:33pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) was bothered some by a sprained foot and missed practice time in Week 1 rather than any lingering issues in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery, according to the team. Newton took all the snaps in practice this week heading into the Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 12. 'I feel good about him and what he's done to get himself ready to roll,' head coach Ron Rivera said.

Fantasy Spin: Newton had a rough Week 1 with 239 passing yards, minus-2 rushing yards and two turnovers in a 30-27 home loss to the Los Angeles Rams, but he has the chance to bounce back strong against a less-than-formidable Bucs defense.

From TheHuddle

Sep 11 5:20am ET

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will look to rebound on Thursday night against the visiting Buccaneers. Newton was quiet against the Rams in Week 1, finishing the day by going 25-for-38 with an interception. The 30-year-old threw for 547 yards while also tossing four touchdowns and four interceptions against Tampa in 2018, with the veteran performing much more effectively at home. He is an effective option in all fantasy formats.

From RotoBaller

Sep 10 6:13pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton assured reporters Tuesday, Sept. 10, he'll be able to throw the deep ball whenever it's required. 'If it's going to hinder us from winning, I don't want to throw it. But if it's going to make us win, 'Oh, baby,' you better throw some doggone deep balls,' Newton said while impersonating offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Newton underwent arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder in the offseason.

Fantasy Spin: Newton threw just one pass traveling 20-plus yards beyond the line of scrimmage in Week 1, completing 25 of 38 passes for 239 yards and one interception in the loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He remains a bonafide QB1 despite the lackluster season debut.

From TheHuddle

Sep 8 4:50pm ET

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton failed to lead his team past the Rams in Week 1. Despite finishing with 239 yards while completing 65 percent of his passes (25-for-38), Newton was unable to find the end zone, with the team relying on running back Christian McCaffrey to pick up the slack offensively. It was still a semi-efficient outing for the veteran, especially after dealing with a nagging shoulder issue in 2018 that led to offseason surgery. He will look to get it going in Week 2, with the Panthers getting only a few days off before meeting the Bucs on Thursday night. He remains a must-start in most cases.

From RotoBaller

Sep 5 4:23pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) has reportedly shown the ability to move around well in practice, leading head coach Ron Rivera to believe Newton will be able to do the things 'he has normally done' in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Spin: A fully healthy Newton is a dual-threat quarterback with potential to vulture touchdowns near the goal line. He's a solid start in Week 1.

From TheHuddle

Sep 5 4:00pm ET

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said that quarterback Cam Newton's (foot) mobility has been good in practice and he feels like the signal-caller will be able to do the things he normally does in Week 1 on Sunday against the Rams. Newton suffered a mid-foot sprain in the third preseason game but is past the issue and is all systems go for the regular season opener. Many fantasy owners were skeptical of Newton in drafts this year because of his second straight offseason with right shoulder surgery. But if he's right, Newton should remain a QB1 most weeks. He's a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 to start the year in a tough matchup with LA's capable defense.

From RotoBaller

Sep 4 3:30pm ET

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (foot) is not listed on the team's Week 1 injury report against the Rams. Head coach Ron Rivera said there's no reason to hold Newton back in the season opener. With injury concerns surrounding his foot and right shoulder, Newton's fantasy value dropped in drafts, but he still has the potential to put up QB1 numbers more often than not, especially if he continues to use his legs to pick up yards. He'll be a risk/reward low-end QB1 while going up the NFL Champions from a year ago in Week 1.

From RotoBaller

Sep 4 3:13pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

Fantasy Spin: Newton dealt with a foot injury during the majority of the preseason but should not be limited in Week 1. He will be facing a solid Los Angeles Rams defense but can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

From TheHuddle

Sep 2 1:03pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) was not limited during the media portion of practice Monday, Sept. 2. General manager Marty Hurney told reporters afterward Newton is 'good to go' for Week 1 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Spin: Owners should feel good about plugging in Newton as their starting fantasy quarterback this week. His presence will also be good news for Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel - each of whom is either a must-start or a player who should be starting in the majority of leagues.

From TheHuddle

Sep 2 2:23am ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) was sharp during practice Sunday, Sept. 1, and able to take his first-team reps, according to sources.

Fantasy Spin: Fantasy owners have worried about Newton, since the last time he was on the field in game action he limping off in New England and wearing a walking boot after. He is still a little bit of a risky fantasy play in Week 1, but overall he is a solid low-end QB1 in most formats if he can stay healthy.

From TheHuddle

Aug 27 2:33pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) is expected to play in the season opener against the Los Angeles Rams according to head coach Ron Rivera, who said 'there's no doubt in my mind' Newton will be ready.

Fantasy Spin: Newton probably won't get much practice in between now and then, but he appears to be safe to start. Fantasy owners of D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel and Christian McCaffrey can all take a deep breath as well.

From TheHuddle

Aug 27 2:10pm ET

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said that "there's no doubt in my mind" that quarterback Cam Newton (foot) will be ready for Week 1 against the Rams. Newton suffered a mid-foot sprain in the third preseason game, but he should be ready to suit up for the regular season opener. Coming off a second straight offseason shoulder surgery, all of his injury concerns make him more of a low-end QB1 selection in fantasy drafts now. However, Newton will be on the QB1 radar in Week 1 and still has plenty of upside on a week-to-week basis.

From RotoBaller

Aug 26 1:00pm ET

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (foot) worked on the side with trainers in practice Monday. Newton is dealing with a mid-foot sprain, but his activity level is encouraging. Before the injury, Newton was already a shaky QB1 option in fantasy because he's not the same player after the shoulder injury. A mid-foot sprain could be a multiple-week injury, but the team is cautiously optimistic he'll be ready for Week 1. There are a lot of quality quarterbacks in the low-end QB1 range, and Newton might slip to fantasy backup status.

From RotoBaller

Aug 26 11:23am ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) is working off to the side with trainers Monday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Spin: That's a step in the right direction, but there should still be concern about his Week 1 status. Newton was a low-end QB1 with a lot of questions before the injury and could fall further.

From TheHuddle

Aug 25 2:39pm ET

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said that quarterback Cam Newton (foot) is progressing and shed his walking boot on Sunday. There's a chance that Newton returns to practice as early as Monday, which would be a great sign that he'll be ready to suit up in Week 1 against the Rams, where he'd be in play as a QB1. Many fantasy owners were already skeptical of Newton after he had offseason surgery on his right shoulder for the second straight year, but reports in the preseason were positive about his throwing motion. There's certainly injury risk with his foot as well now, but Newton should be in play as a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 with upside. Keep a close eye on his status this week as the regular season approaches.

From RotoBaller

Aug 25 1:43pm ET

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton shed his walking boot Sunday, Aug. 25, according to multiple media reports.

Fantasy Spin: This is a step in the right direction for Newton's availability come Week 1. Fantasy owners should have a backup plan for the opener, just in case. If you have yet to draft, Newton is as risky as ever coming off of shoulder surgery, but he has the skills to maintain his entrenched QB1 placement, provided health isn't an issue.
