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.

Jul 9 10:43am ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is slated to be a full participant when training camp opens July 24. Newton struggled with soreness and tightness in his right shoulder stemming from scar tissue and cartilage damage that built up after his surgery for a torn rotator cuff. He had the shoulder cleaned out in the offseason. The cartilage damage was much less severe than anticipated, and he has been throwing regulation footballs.

Fantasy Spin: Newton is a puzzling fantasy option because it's unlikely he'll return to his MVP form. He simply can't play that way anymore and stay on the field. He's a mid-to-low QB1 in fantasy.

Jun 30 1:10am ET

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) advanced from throws to stationary targets to downfield throws to moving targets during minicamp and he appears to be in good shape heading into training camp and the preseason. Head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion explained to beat writer Max Henson that the joy in Newton's face during the practices comes from the fact that there is no pain in his throwing shoulder. "You know when he feels good and when he doesn't," tight end Greg Olsen said. If Newton is healthy, and he can continue to stay so, he'll be a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues not only for his throwing ability, but work with his legs.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) has been using a new throwing motion so far during minicamp and offseason drills, as the team tries to cut down on the wear and tear on his surgically-repaired throwing shoulder. "Making him a little more compact in his upper body. A little more closed off, just so he's not as open throwing the ball. And just to make him as efficient as possible and putting the least amount of stress possible," quarterbacks coach Scott Cooper said. Newton can be a threat with his arm and his feet when he is healthy. If he can avoid shoulder issues again in 2019, he can still be a low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is using a new throwing motion in hopes of preserving his shoulder for the long haul. 'Making him a little more compact in his upper body. A little more closed off, just so he's not as open throwing the ball. And just to make him as efficient as possible and putting the least amount of stress possible,' quarterbacks coach Scott Turner said Wednesday, June 12.

Fantasy Spin: Newton had a good rehab process and he has been throwing in minicamp. Fantasy owners would love to get a full season of Cam. He is a risky play based on his recent shoulder issues over the past couple of seasons, but if he is 100 percent healthy he is a legit QB1 in most fantasy leagues not only for his arm but his running ability, too.

From TheHuddle

Jun 11 2:03pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) threw to stationary targets Tuesday, June 11, during the team's minicamp practice. It was the first time Newton has thrown passes publicly since undergoing shoulder surgery in January. 'If you go back and look at a lot of things that happened before he started having shoulder issues, you can see the improvement, you can see the footwork, you can see the whole development of him,'' coach Ron Rivera said. 'As the shoulder started to go, then you saw everything fall by the wayside. Now you get an opportunity to go back, rework those things, do the things he needs to do to improve. He's done a great job.'

Fantasy Spin: Despite missing two games and being obviously hampered by the shoulder in several others, Newton finished as the 12th-best QB in fantasy in 2018. He's ranked by most as a low-end QB1 this year, and could prove to be a bargain if his recovery progress continues at its current pace.

Jun 8 12:50pm ET

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder), who had arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder for the second straight offseason, is scheduled to throw during all quarterback drills at minicamp next week. It's unclear when he'll start taking part in team drills, though. Cams confidence level is up because hes pain-free, head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion said. He feels good about where he is right now but were not done. This is one more step in our process as we get him ready for 2019. It's understandable if fantasy owners shy away from making Newton a high-end QB1 pick in 2019 drafts, but he could easily return high-end QB1 value this year if his shoulder gives him no further issues.

From RotoBaller

Jun 8 12:03pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will throw in all quarterback drills during the team's upcoming mandatory minicamp.

Fantasy Spin: Newton's recovery from arthroscopic shoulder surgery appears to be right on schedule. Assuming that he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he should be viewed as a midrange QB1 in all fantasy formats.

From TheHuddle

May 30 9:20pm ET

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) has started throwing a regulation-sized football, according to a league source. Newton is coming off his second straight offseason shoulder surgery and hadn't thrown overhand during public workouts so far this spring. The Panthers won't rush the start quarterback along through the process, but he's expected to participate in workouts by training camp this summer. Newton, 30, was really limited in what he could do down the field late last year and sat out the final two meaningless games of the season. He finished with 3,395 yards passing, 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 14 games while also running 101 times for 488 yards and four scores. When he's healthy and also using his legs to rack up points, Newton is a no-doubt QB1, but the risk is greater than ever.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) has started throwing a regulation-size football as part of his rehab, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: Newton is recovering from offseason surgery and appears to be on track in his rehab. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation over the next few months to see if he suffers any setbacks. Newton is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy.

From TheHuddle

May 28 10:33am ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is absent from organized team activities Tuesday, May 28, in what has been deemed a personal day.

From TheHuddle

May 22 12:40pm ET

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said that there is still no timetable on quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder), but he is "very optimistic" that Newton will be ready by training camp. Newton didn't throw at organized team activities on Wednesday as the team continues to play it safe with him after he had offseason surgery for the second straight year. Shoulder issues will make Newton less desirable in fantasy in 2019, but he still has high upside as a QB1 if he can finally put his arm issues behind him once and for all.

From RotoBaller

May 10 8:33pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said he is too old to change his playing style.

Fantasy Spin: Newton has dealt with injuries over the last several seasons but likely will continue to run despite the injuries. He is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy, but fantasy players should keep an eye on him during training camp.

From TheHuddle

May 8 2:30pm ET

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) said his rehab from offseason shoulder surgery is going "unbelievable" and he hopes to throw before training camp. "I'm feeling great now," Newton told ESPN. "I feel like I do have full strength right now. But me telling the doctor, that is different than, you know, whatever the clearance process may be." Newton was shut down for the final two games in 2018, and scar tissue that remained from his 2017 surgery was removed from his rotator cuff. There is no timetable for when he'll be cleared, but he's confident he won't have any setbacks like he did last year. Newton is on a vegan diet in hopes of getting to the 237-pound range, which would be the lowest of his career. He also hired a personal trainer that works with him daily. While Newton's fantasy value might fall a tad based on his shoulder concerns, he can still make plays with his legs and should remain a QB1 heading into the 2019 season.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said he feels at full strength and hopes to be throwing before training camp. Newton hasn't been given a timetable for when he'll be cleared, but he's confident there won't be another setback like last season. He began a vegan diet in hopes of getting his weight into the 237-pound range, which would be the lowest of his career.

Fantasy Spin: Newton could return to the midrange of the QB1 pack, and he could even elevate a little higher. A healthy showing in camp will go a long way in forecasting his 2019 draft stock. However, the form he showed in his MVP season is probably out of the question.

From TheHuddle

Apr 17 6:13pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is making good progress in his recovery from shoulder surgery, but head coach Ron Rivera said there is no timetable for when Newton will be throwing at full strength.

Fantasy Spin: Newton probably will not do much this offseason but should be ready for training camp. He is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he is healthy, but owners may want to pick up a strong No. 2 quarterback in case Newton suffers any setbacks.

From TheHuddle

Apr 17 4:50pm ET

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said that quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) is getting close to throwing again. There remains no timetable for Newton to return to action, however. It's the second straight offseason that Newton has had shoulder surgery. The 29-year-old remains one of the best dual-threat QBs in the league, but his shoulder woes have really capped his fantasy ceiling the last two seasons. His arm was extremely compromised late last year and he was unable to make a lot of the necessary throws. Newton finished with 3,395 yards, 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions while also rushing 101 times for 488 yards and four more scores. If his shoulder bounces back nicely in training camp, owners should feel comfortable taking him as their QB1.

From RotoBaller

Mar 26 2:23pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) has encouraged head coach Ron Rivera by the progress he has made in his recovery from shoulder surgery in January. 'I look forward to seeing him soon,' Rivera said, 'but just very happy that things are trending in the right direction.' The Panthers are confident that Newton will be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Spin: It was an off year for Newton as he missed two games and finished outside of QB1 territory. Assuming he does make a full recovery from the shoulder issue then it would be a surprise not to see him back among No. 1 fantasy quarterbacks in 2019.

From TheHuddle

Mar 14 1:00am ET

The Carolina Panthers re-signed offensive tackle Daryl Williams to a one-year, $7 million deal on Wednesday, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 26-year-old is one of the better tackles in the NFL but is coming off a knee injury that held him to just one game last year. Williams was a second-team All-Pro in 2017 and his re-signing is definitely good news for quarterback Cam Newton and Pro Bowl running back Christian McCaffrey.

From RotoBaller

Feb 15 12:43pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton should be ready for training camp, head coach Ron Rivera said Friday, Feb. 15, on ESPN. Rivera also stressed the need to protect Newton better with the quarterback recently undergoing shoulder surgery, and the coach said the Panthers will use both free agency and the draft, if necessary, to shore up the team's offensive line.

Fantasy Spin: Cam finished as a top-12 fantasy QB, but tailed off dramatically late in the season once the shoulder flared up, and he wound up missing the final two games of the year. If all is looking good health-wise later this summer, Newton will still go off the board as a QB1 in fantasy drafts.

From TheHuddle

Feb 11 12:43am ET

The Carolina Panthers could seek a veteran backup to QB Cam Newton in free agency, in the opinion of ESPN's David Newton, who lists soon-to-be free-agent QBs Brock Osweiler (Dolphins), Trevor Siemian (Vikings), Tyrod Taylor (Browns), Ryan Fitzpatrick (Buccaneers), Sean Mannion (Rams) and Mark Sanchez (Redskins) as options they could consider.
