Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton looked healthy during Week 16's win over the Browns.
Insight: He was very mobile, rushing 12 times for 63 yards and a touchdown. Newton also threw for 201 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.
 
12/21/2014 11:33:00 AM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (back) is officially active for Week 16 against the Browns.
Insight: We expect Newton to be limited in regards to his running game, but he will have an opporunity to produce with Joe Haden out. He is a borderline QB1.
 
12/19/2014 2:04:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (back) put in another practice and is probable for Week 16.
Insight: While we expect Newton to give it a go Sunday against the Browns, owners shouldn't expect to get the running Newton, only the passer and that limits his fantasy value.
 
12/17/2014 2:02:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (back) returned to practice on Wednesday.
Insight: It was a limited session, but progress nonetheless. While we expect Newton to give it a go Sunday against the Browns, owners should monitor his progress throughout the week
 
12/10/2014 4:11:00 PM
Description: The Panthers announced Derek Anderson will start at quarterback in Week 15.
Insight: Regular starter Cam Newton suffered two fractured transverse process in his back in a car accident on Tuesday. Newton is day-to-day and will apparently try to play in Week 16, but that won't do much good for fantasy owners who do not advance out of Week 15.
 
12/9/2014 8:05:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is not expected to play in Week 15 after suffering two transverse process fractures in a car accident on Tuesday according to the Charlotte Observer.
Insight: The injury is not considered too serious. It's actually the same injury that cost Tony Romo a game this season. Although it isn't a long-term issue, the Charlotte Observer is assuming the Panthers won't rush Newton back onto the field. And why would they? At 4-8-1, Newton's 2014 season might be over.
 
12/9/2014 3:32:00 PM
Description: Updating Panthers quarterback Cam Newton who was involved in a car accident Tuesday, he suffered two transverse process factures of the lower back.
Insight: Newton played his best game of the season in Week 14, throwing for 226 yards and three touchdowns and rushing for 83 yards and another score. Pictures being tweeted show him smiling after the incident, but we await further word on his status for Week 15.
 
12/9/2014 1:55:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been involved in a car accident Tuesday, but doesn't appear to have suffered any injuries, according to the Charlotte Observer.
Insight: Newton played his best game of the season in Week 14, throwing for 226 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 83 yards and another score. Pictures being tweeted show him smiling after the incident, so Newton owners can relax.
 
12/7/2014 6:03:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton played his best game of the season in Week 14.
Insight: He threw for 226 yards and three touchdowns, and rushed for 83 yards and another score. This is what owners had hoped for out of Newton all season long.
 
11/16/2014 6:00:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had a great fourth quarter to salvage a decent fantasy day.
Insight: Newton threw for 292 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, with both scores coming in the final stanza. Newton also rushed for 30 yards. He is too unreliable to be counted on in 10 or 12-team leagues.
 
11/11/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was ugly again in Week 10, though his numbers were greatly helped by garbage-time production.
Insight: Most of the problem lies in the offensive line which yielded nine sacks to Philadelphia Monday night. It's hard to throw while running for your life. Newton finished the game with two late touchdown throws to Kelvin Benjamin and ended the night with 306 yards, two TD passes and three interceptions.
 
Cold10/31/2014 9:43:00 AM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was ugly, completing just 10-of-28 for 151 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception.
Insight: The only saving grace for fantasy owners was his seven carries for 43 yards and a touchdown. He hasn't thrown for more than 205 yards in three games and even his running isn't making him a very good fantasy option.
 
10/26/2014 6:38:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton conitued his lousy season during Sunday loss to Seattle.
Insight: He was 12-of-22 for 171 yards, no touchdowns, one interception, and one fumble lost. Newton did contribute 12 carries, but for only 24 yards. Newton, as of right now, is a low-end QB2.
 
10/19/2014 7:25:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton did not build upon his performance in Cincinnati last week.
Insight: Owners were hoping Newton would be able to repeat, or at least get close, to his 200-plus passing yards, 100-plus rushing yards and three totals touchdowns, which he had in Cincinnati last week. Against Green Bay, however, Newton threw for 205 yards, gained 41 yards on the ground, threw a touchdown and pick.
 
10/12/2014 5:44:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton came to life in Sunday's tie against the Bengals.
Insight: Carolina's coaching staff finally let him loose, as he had 107 rushing yards, along with one touchdown on the ground. Newton added 284 passing yards and two touchdowns through the air as well, but did have one interception. If this is the Newton we will continue to see, he is a sure-fire QB1, moving forward.
 
10/5/2014 6:03:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton struggled early but led the Carolina comeback over Chicago to win, 31-24, in Week 5.
Insight: The Carolina defense certainly helped as well as they held Chicago to just one field goal in the second half. Newton went 19-for-35 with 255 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He looked a bit healthier as he rolled out on more option plays in Week 5 than in previous weeks.
 
9/28/2014 5:24:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton finished 14-of-25 for 197 yards and one touchdown in the loss against the Ravens.
Insight: It is clear that Newton is still not one-hundred percent healthy. The Ravens made things worse with constant pressure all day. With Newton unable to move around effectively in the pocket and no healthy running backs, Newton is not a wise fantasy start.
 
9/14/2014 5:49:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton finished 22-for-34 with 281 passing yards and one touchdown in Carolina's victory over Detroit in Week 2.
Insight: Newton also rushed for 19 yards and almost scored. The quarterback did not look limited in his return from the rib injury.
 
9/10/2014 4:01:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (ribs), ruled out of last Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, was back at practice Wednesday.
Insight: That's a great sign and fantasy owners should expect him to play in Week 2 against the Lions.
 
9/7/2014 3:17:00 PM
Description: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (ribs) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Insight: Derek Anderson will get the start. If you have anyone on the Panthers offense, they take a major fantasy hit for Week 1. On the other hand, the Tampa Bay defense is a sneaky good start for Week 1.
