Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed just 5-of-21 passes for 92 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins before he was pulled in the fourth quarter. He also had a rushing touchdown in the first quarter.
Fantasy Spin: Newton had a quarterback rating of 5.8 in an absolutely disastrous fantasy performance, although he did post the rushing score so it wasn't a total loss. He cannot be trusted in fantasy leagues in Week 14 after the team's bye.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was benched late in Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He was 5-for-21 for 92 yards with two interceptions while adding five rushing yards and a rushing score. Phillip Walker replaced him and also quickly threw a pick. The Panthers quarterback situation is a mess, but we should assume Newton is the starter until told otherwise.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is in the QB1 conversation against Miami in Week 12. The QB has been fantastic since returning to his old squad. He has now posted five touchdowns in the last two games, three passing and two rushing. The 32-year-old has proved he still has it in terms of his dual-threat abilities. The Dolphins allow the seventh-most points to fantasy QBs, so Newton is a solid start.
The Carolina Panthers are open to bringing quarterback Cam Newton back next season, but they want to see how the 32-year-old former MVP performs down the stretch with the offense tailored to his strengths. Newton is still learning the nuances of the offense, but many are skeptical that his diminished arm strength will limit what the team can do offensively. He looked good in the Week 11 loss to the Washington Football Team, but a 27-yard touchdown to running back Christian McCaffrey was Newton's only completion over 19 yards. Head coach Matt Rhule insisted it was a case of offensive coordinator Joe Brady choosing not to stretch the field rather than Newton's inability to go deep. There will continue to be questions about whether Newton's arm is strong enough to succeed deep down the field, but for fantasy purposes, his legs alone put him in the QB1 streaming picture, especially this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
Panthers' QB Cam Newton scored 28.05 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 11 loss against the FB Team. Newton threw for 189 yards on 21-of-27 with two touchdowns.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton went 21-for-27 for 189 yards and two touchdowns along with rushing 10 times for 46 yards and a score in Sunday's loss to Washington. Cam looked right at home with Carolina in his first start with the team again and displayed his amazing rushing prowess as well. The QB should be the starter going forward and his dual-threat abilities put him in the starting tier in fantasy in upcoming games.
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 21 of his 27 pass attempts for 189 yards and two touchdowns and rushed 10 times for 46 yards and a score in a 27-21 loss to the Washington Football Team in Week 11.
Fantasy Spin: Newton has accounted for five touchdowns in two games since returning to Carolina, and while the passing numbers might not be pretty, his running ability can prop up his stat lines. Newton is at least worth a look as a QB2.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is a high-end QB2 option against the Washington Football Team. Newton recently made his return to Carolina and though he didn't start the game last week, he chipped in with a passing and rushing touchdown. Now, the QB will get a chance to lead Carolina once again. The WFT allows the most fantasy points to QBs, so there is value in starting Cam as he is in a solid position to produce given his passing and rushing prowess.
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has been named as the starting quarterback for Week 11 against the Washington Football Team.
Fantasy Spin: Head coach Matt Rhule made it clear that "Cam will take the first snap" and that P.J. Walker will "probably" play. Rhule is being cagey here, but the fact the matter is Newton is less than two weeks into learning offensive coordinator Joe Brady's playbook, so it would be unrealistic for him to know all of the checks and audibles he needs to play a full game. The threat of Walker stealing a few snaps is enough to keep Newton out of the QB1 discussion, but his dual-threat ability makes it a close call.
Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said that quarterback Cam Newton will start in Week 11 against the Washington Football Team. "Cam will take the first play," Rhule says. The quote from Rhule makes it sound as though P.J. Walker could still be involved, but even if he is, we'd expect to see a much larger dose of Newton under center this Sunday in his second game back with the team. It was nice to see Newton return and score two touchdowns immediately for Carolina, but Washington's defense has allowed only 97.1 rushing yards per game this year, and fantasy managers shouldn't expect Newton to return to similar production that he had in his prime with the Panthers. However, with a bigger workload, he should at least serve as a solid QB2 streamer in two-QB leagues because of his rushing prowess.
Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said that it's "trending toward" quarterback Cam Newton starting in Week 11 against the Washington Football Team, but he won't make an official announcement until later in the week. The Panthers will get both Newton and P.J. Walker ready and hasn't ruled out both playing in certain packages on Sunday. Newton made his return to Carolina last weekend and rejuvenated the team in limited playing time, going 3-for-4 passing for eight yards and a touchdown and carrying the ball three times for 14 yards and another score. The former MVP deserves to be picked up in most leagues, if he hasn't been already, and he'll have QB1 streaming appeal if he starts this weekend against a Washington defense that has allowed the most fantasy points per game to QBs all season long.
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is the leading candidate to be the starting quarterback for the Week 11 game, but head coach Matt Rhule will not make an official announcement until later in the week.
Fantasy Spin: Newton played well in his limited role last week and probably will be the starter against the Washington Football Team. Newton can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in very deep leagues but probably will be a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton will work with the first-team offense in practice this week, but head coach Matt Rhule won't declare a starter.
Fantasy Spin: Newton could be a worthwhile backup so keep tabs on his progress in practice as they prepare for the Washington Football Team.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will get the majority of first-team practice reps this week in preparation for the Washington Football Team in Week 11. Newton will be in line for his first start of the season after he was used sparingly in Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals, where he was able to throw a touchdown pass and run one in himself. In his second stint in Carolina, Newton could offer some QB2 appeal because of his ability to run the ball effectively near the goal-line, giving him a higher floor for fantasy production. The 32-year-old likely has his best days behind him, but he still has the ability to produce stat lines that will be attractive to fantasy managers. Newton could be one of the top waiver pickups this week as some notable quarterbacks have their BYE weeks approaching.
There is a strong chance that Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will get the start over P.J. Williams in Week 11 against the Washington Football Team, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. Newton didn't have a big role and was basically just used as a red-zone weapon, but he ran for a touchdown on three carries and tossed a touchdown on four passing attempts in his return to Carolina on Sunday. Meanwhile, starter P.J. Williams predictably underwhelmed in the blowout win over the Arizona Cardinals. This was a nice first game back for Newton and he should be a priority addition for anyone in need of a QB. Newton may not light things up on a weekly basis with his arm, but his rushing impact alone could make him a streamable low-end QB1, depending on the matchup.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton went 3-for-4 for eight yards and one touchdown along with rushing three times for 14 yards and a score in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. The longtime Panthers QB finally returned in his Carolina uniform and wasted no time in having two touchdowns. Of course, this game was meant for Cam to get adjusted to the system, so he didn't have a big role. Managers will have to wait and see what type of role the QB will have in the upcoming games before making a decision about streaming him.
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 3-of-4 passes for just eight yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals, and he also ran three times for 14 yards and a score.
Fantasy Spin: Newton was used early in the game in goal-line packages after just re-signing late this week. He looked good in his opportunities, and had touchdowns on his first two touches. It will be interesting to see if he gets the starting nod in Week 11 against old friend Ron Rivera and the Washington Football Team after a full week of work.
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is officially active for the Week 10 game.
Fantasy Spin: Newton may receive a few snaps this week against the Arizona Cardinals but will serve as the No. 2 quarterback for the team. He should be avoided in all leagues until he takes over the starting job.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, but Phillip Walker will start. The newly-signed Newton will eventually be the starter in Carolina, but the team looks like it wants to give him another week before turning him loose. But by having Newton active and looming as a threat to play if Walker struggles, Walker loses most of his appeal as a DFS punt play.
Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is expected to be active for Week 10's game against the Arizona Cardinals as the backup to QB P.J. Walker, according to a source. There is a possibility that he could be used in a package of offensive plays, although there is no guarantee that he will see playing time.
Fantasy Spin: Newton should be held out of fantasy lineups until he takes over Carolina's starting quarterback job, which should happen once he gets into playing shape and gains a better grasp of the playbook. At that point, he can be considered a potential QB2 option for fantasy leagues with a decent amount of upside.
