Player Notes
Jan 15 9:03pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is not guaranteed to play at all in 2019 as the team considers all of its options regarding his injured shoulder. Per ESPN.com's David Newton, the organization has been in discussions with medical personnel on the best plan to strengthen the shoulder - whether that's with rest or another surgery. A surgery opens the possibility Newton could miss a season - just as Andrew Luck did in 2017 - after undergoing surgery on his throwing shoulder.

Fantasy Spin: It sounds as if missing all of 2019 is only a worst-case scenario, but the fact it is even on the table this early in the offseason is concerning. Kyle Allen played well in the regular-season finale and could conceivably be asked to fill in, but Carolina will probably try hard to secure a capable placeholder in free agency or spend a relatively early pick in the draft at quarterback to protect itself. At this point, it's probably best if fantasy owners assume the worst and hope for good news sometime this summer.

Jan 15 6:20pm ET

Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper said he has "no idea" on whether quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) will need offseason surgery. Newton's right shoulder hampered him down the stretch and he was shut down for the final two games with the team eliminated from postseason contention. We'd be surprised if he didn't undergo right shoulder surgery for the second straight season based on how he looked in the second half of the season. While a second straight year of surgery would have many scared to take Newton as a QB1 in 2019 drafts, he'd still have QB1 upside based on his running abilities.

Jan 15 5:53pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton's (shoulder) offseason recovery remains unclear as team owner David Tepper admitted he has 'no idea' if Newton will have surgery.

Fantasy Spin: Newton's rushing numbers were down in 2018 - including a career-low four rushing touchdowns - but his passing statistics were better. He even completed a career-high 67.9% of his attempts. His rushing ability will always have him in QB1 territory.

Dec 30 11:43am ET

The Carolina Panthers have declared DL Kawann Short, QB Cam Newton, CB Lorenzo Doss, WR Devin Funchess, OG Trai Turner, LB Efe Obada and TE Jason Vander Laan inactive for Week 17.

Dec 28 4:33pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) did not practice again Friday, Dec. 28 and he has been ruled out for the Week 17 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Spin: With Taylor Heinicke out and Kyle Allen starting, it was thought Cam might be healthy enough to at least serve as the backup, but that's not the case. Garrett Gilbert is the emergency QB if Allen is befallen by injury. Cam wraps up the season with 3,395 passing yards, 24 touchdowns and 488 rushing yards with four scores in 14 games.

Dec 28 12:53pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder), DT Kawann Short (calf) and OG Trai Turner (ankle) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 17 against the New Orleans Saints. RB Kenjon Barner (knee) was able to practice in a limited fashion Friday, Dec. 28, but is listed as doubtful. OT Marshall Newhouse (hip) also was limited in practice Friday and is listed as questionable. DE Julius Peppers (rest) was downgraded to a limited practice Friday but no longer appears on the injury report. S Mike Adams (rest), DE Bryan Cox Jr. (non-injury), LB Thomas Davis (rest), C Ryan Kalil (rest) and RB Christian McCaffrey (rest) fully participated in practice Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.

Dec 27 2:53pm ET

Carolina Panthers RB Kenjon Barner (knee), DE Bryan Cox Jr. (non-injury related), OT Marshall Newhouse (hip) and QB Cam Newton (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 27. FS Mike Adams (rest), LB Thomas Davis (rest), C Ryan Kalil (rest) and DE Julius Peppers (rest) participated fully.

Dec 26 5:53pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) rested his right shoulder in practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.

Fantasy Spin: Newton might be active for Week 17, serving as the backup to Kyle Allen, as last week's fill-in starter Taylor Heinicke is done for the season with an injury. If Cam plays in the finale it's because Allen was befallen by injury. Avoid both quarterbacks for fantasy purposes in Week 17.

Dec 26 5:43pm ET

Carolina Panthers S Mike Adams (not injury related), LB Thomas Davis (not injury related), C Ryan Kalil (not injury related), RB Christian McCaffrey (not injury related), OT Marshall Newhouse (hip), QB Cam Newton (shoulder), DE Julius Peppers (not injury related), DT Kawann Short (calf) and OG Trai Turner (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.

Dec 21 6:13pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 21, and has been ruled out for Week 16. DT Kawann Short (calf, non-injury) did not practice and is listed as questionable. DE Julius Peppers (non-injury) and OG Trai Turner (non-injury) were limited during practice but are not on the injury report. FS Mike Adams (non-injury, wrist), LB Thomas Davis (non-injury), C Ryan Kalil (non-injury), LB Luke Kuechly (non-injury), CB Captain Munnerlyn (knee) and S Eric Reid (non-injury) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Dec 20 3:03pm ET

Carolina Panthers DT Kawann Short (rest, calf) and QB Cam Newton (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 20. OG Trai Turner (rest), FS Eric Reid (rest), DE Julius Peppers (rest), CB Captain Munnerlyn (rest), LB Luke Kuechly (rest), C Ryan Kalil (rest), LB Thomas Davis (rest) and FS Mike Adams (rest, wrist) participated fully.

Dec 19 3:03pm ET

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will not be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Dec 19 1:50pm ET

The Carolina Panthers are expected to shut quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) down for the final two games of the season now that they are out of the playoff hunt, according to sources. Backup Taylor Heinicke is expected to start in Week 16 against the Falcons. Newton isn't practicing on Wednesday. Newton's right shoulder got progressively worse as the season wore on, and there's a good chance he'll need offseason surgery for the second straight year, which will put his fantasy value in question going into 2019. All of Carolina's offensive weapons need to be downgraded, including stud running back Christian McCaffrey. However, McCaffrey should still be treated as an RB1 in a great matchup. Expect Heinicke to lean on his running back most of the game.

From RotoBaller

Dec 19 1:43pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is not practicing Wednesday, Dec. 19, and will not play again this season with the Panthers being out of playoff contention. QB Taylor Heinicke will take over as the starter.

Fantasy Spin: Newton has not looked good at all the last few weeks while dealing with his shoulder issue. It makes sense for the Panthers to start resting him now since they aren't playing for anything. Heinicke is only a cheap DFS play. Don't start him in your championship contests.

Dec 18 3:50pm ET

Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera hasn't ruled out the idea of shutting quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) down for the final two games of the season due to his sore right throwing shoulder. Rivera plans to meet with Newton later in the week to figure out where he is "in terms of his physical state and mental state" before deciding if he'll play in Week 16 against the Falcons. Newton has struggled throwing the ball in recent weeks and cannot go deep down the field at all. I think the thing, when you talk to different people who can help you with it, is that theres not any magical surgery or whatever. Its just time, Newton said. Ive tried and done everything. Newton continues to get treatment on his shoulder daily, but nothing has really helped. There's a chance he'll need to have right shoulder surgery for the second straight season. Even if Newton plays in a good matchup with Atlanta, he'll be more of a QB2 now that he can't do much with his right arm. All of Carolina's receiver options, aside from running back Christian McCaffrey, are hard to trust as well. Taylor Heinicke would be forced to start and close out the season if Newton is shut down.

Dec 18 10:10am ET

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton struggled against the New Orleans Saints in a loss this week. Newton finished the game with 16 completions from 29 attempts for 131 yards and an interception, adding 15 yards on the ground. Newton has led the Panthers to six straight losses and has struggled to be the fantasy force he was at the start of the season.For Week 16 Newton faces the Atlanta Falcons, who have given up a league-high average of 21.1 points to the position. Even with the recent struggles that he has had, Newton should be considered to be started in fantasy matchups this week.

From RotoBaller

Dec 18 9:13am ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) said he has been battling shoulder soreness that hasn't gone away or gotten worse for several weeks. 'It doesn't matter how much you push,' Newton said. 'Ice, anti-inflammatories you take... I mean, trust me, I did it. Acupuncture. Massages. It's just not been a time that (a) night has gone by without me getting some type of work done on my arm. We just don't have the strength, from the range of motion. Obviously my arm hasn't allowed me to do a lot of practice. I've been on a pitch count. That's not a scapegoat. That's not something I want people to bail me out on. It's just reality.'

Fantasy Spin: The Panthers are clinging to their playoff life at 6-8, with two other 7-7 teams on the outside looking in ahead of them. Until they are eliminated, Newton should suit up. However, he's a risky midrange QB1.

Dec 17 11:43pm ET

Carolina Panthers RB Cam Newton completed 16-of-29 passes for just 131 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 15 against the New Orleans Saints and he rushed for 15 yards.

Fantasy Spin: There are whispers Newton's shoulder is not well and it certainly looked like it on Monday, as he was missing plenty of throws he normally makes, tossing up ducks rather than bullets. The Panthers are 6-8 and nearly eliminated from the playoff chase. It wouldn't be surprising to see Carolina rest Newton down the stretch.

Dec 17 4:40pm ET

The Atlanta Falcons defense/special teams returned a decent fantasy day Sunday, thanks in large part to a pick six from Deion Jones. The Falcons defense bolstered their fantasy point total with seven sacks and gave up just 14 points to the Cardinals offense. They also picked off Josh Rosen a second time in the game, and therefore returned one of their best totals of the season. The Falcons defense is hard to trust next week in Carolina, but if Cam Newton is struggling with his shoulder they could make for an interesting contrarian matchup play in Week 16.

From RotoBaller

Dec 15 2:03pm ET

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

Fantasy Spin: Newton has not played his best football over the last few weeks but probably will be involved in a high-scoring game this week against the New Orleans Saints. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues this week.
