Huddle Up: It's been an eventful offseason for Newton, who was limited earlier in training camp following foot surgery and is now dealing with the cracked rib. But if he says he'll be ready to roll by Week 1, who are we to argue?
Posted: 8/27/2014 2:19pm ET
Huddle Up: The main fantasy concern is not Newton missing games, but cutting back on his rushing, which has been a key component of his three-straight top-5-ranked fantasy QB seasons.

Huddle Up: Far from a debilitating injury, but definitely not good news for the fourth-year QB who already is coming off ankle surgery. Add in this rib issue, and Newton is likely be more conservative with his running -- a major component of his fantasy game since entering the league.

Huddle Up: Coming off offseason ankle surgery, Newton still figures to be limited in terms of snaps and designed running plays, but you can check him out yourself in Sunday evening's nationally televised home contest against the Chiefs.

Huddle Up: Cam could use the PT to get used to his new surrounding cast, but on the other hand, the Panthers certainly aren't going to rush their prize offensive asset back into action and risk re-injuring his surgically-repaired ankle.

Huddle Up: As has been stated here, expect Newton's running and scrambling to be curtailed this preseason as the Panthers have their sights set on the Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Bucs.
Posted: 7/29/2014 1:54pm ET
Huddle Up: All indications are Cam is right on track and even ahead of schedule, and the Panthers certainly aren't going to have the QB scrambling all over and pushing things during the early stages of camp.

Huddle Up: Because much of Newton's fantasy value is derived from his rushing, expect his ankle to be an ongoing story during training camp. A Newton that runs less is no longer a top-five fantasy quarterback, especially given his corps of receivers.

Huddle Up: Good news for the Panthers, Newton and his fantasy owners as the QB looks to make it four top-five fantasy QB finishes in four NFL seasons this year.
Posted: 7/20/2014 1:58am ET
Huddle Up: Newton had offseason ankle surgery and isn't all the way back yet. Ideally, fantasy owners would like to see him a whole lot closer to 100 percent by the time fantasy drafts roll around, as Cam's mobility--especially given his dearth of receivers--is a key component of his fantasy value.

Huddle Up: Newton was sacked a career-high 43 times last season -- and that was before the retirement of LT Jordan Gross -- so don't be surprised in the least if the Panthers target a tackle in the first round next week.
Posted: 4/24/2014 7:32pm ET
Huddle Up: No surprise here with the 2011 No. 1 overall pick coming off his most efficient season (88.8 rating) as a passer while leading the Panthers to the NFC South title.
Posted: 4/22/2014 11:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has had at least 111 rushing attempts and 585 yards in each of his three seasons, and it sounds like his fantasy owners don't need to worry about Newton suddenly becoming a pocket passer.
Posted: 4/19/2014 10:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners will be on "Cam Watch" all summer long. Ideally, he'll get out of the boot and get some work in during OTAs, but it sounds more like training camp before he'll be anywhere near full go.
Posted: 4/2/2014 5:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Maybe by the time Newton is ready to hit the field in August, the Panthers will have his contract situation ironed out... and have found some wide receivers for him to throw to.
Posted: 3/18/2014 6:27pm ET
Huddle Up: This procedure doesn't sound like it'll hamper Newton any -- if at all -- this coming season, but the team's depleted WR situation certainly might as Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn have all departed since the end of the 2013 campaign. Some moves are most definitely in order, or Newton's fantasy stock will undergo a downgrade.
Posted: 2/18/2014 11:38pm ET
Huddle Up: The Panthers are definitely in a tough spot with Hardy, who hit career highs with 15 sacks and 65 total tackles this past season and now tops most of the best-available-free-agent watch lists. With cap space at a premium, look for the Panthers to try and hammer out a longer-term deal with the DE before using the franchise tag as a last resort.
Posted: 1/26/2014 4:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton's 2013 passing (3,379) and rushing-yard (585) totals were career lows, but his passing TDs (24) and the Panthers' wins (12) were both career high-water marks. Still, Newton and the Panthers were the only divisional-round host to lose, and his contract offer will surely fall short of the other QBs megadeals (Joe Flacco, Matt Ryan) we've seen of late.
Posted: 1/14/2014 6:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton had his best year in terms of team success -- 12 wins and a playoff berth as opposed to a combined 13 victories and no postseason over his first 2 years -- but on the fantasy flip-side, he did record career lows in terms of passing (3,379) and rushing yardage (585) and rushing TDs (6). He did, however, hit a career high with 24 TD passes.
Posted: 12/22/2013 10:26pm ET
Huddle Up: He should be fine for this week, but this is the second week in a row where he has been injured. The Panthers haven't clinched the NFC South, so Newton should be a full go next week.
Posted: 12/16/2013 3:56pm ET
Huddle Up: It would likely take a lot to keep Newton down for a huge divisional matchup against the Saints this week.
Posted: 11/19/2013 12:20am ET
Huddle Up: It wasn't Newton's best-ever fantasy performance, but it was likely his best overall game as a QB, outduelling Tom Brady and the Patriots in front of national audience. Since the Panthers' 1-3 start, Newton has 10 TD passes, 3 rushing TDs and only 3 interceptions.
Posted: 10/25/2013 12:09am ET
Huddle Up: It was another "on" week for the on-again, off-again Newton, who lifted the Panthers above .500 for the first time in 5 seasons. Overall, it was the Panthers' third straight win, so weather the off weeks and keep riding Cam.
Posted: 9/9/2013 8:56pm ET
Huddle Up: Conservative may be an understatement. Newton threw for only 125 yards -- his lowest single-game output as a pro -- and his longest completion was 27 yards to Greg Olsen. Look for more downfield throws in Week 2 at Buffalo.
