Cam Newton looks good in matchup vs. Steelers


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton should continue to play well in Week 3 against the Steelers.

Newton didn't have a dominant outing in his first game in 2014 in Week 2 against Detroit, but he was better than expected with 20 Fantasy points. He passed for 281 yards and one touchdown and ran for 19 yards with a two-point conversion.

We hope he can build off that performance this week against the Steelers, who have struggled defensively in the last 90 minutes of game action against the Browns and Ravens. Brian Hoyer and Joe Flacco have combined for three touchdowns over that span, and Newton should have similar success in this matchup.

 For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Cam Newton officially listed questionable for Week 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been officially listed as questionable for Week 1 against Tampa Bay, despite being a full participant in practice on Friday, the team announced. Newton fractured his ribs two weeks ago against Patriots in preseason and will likely be a gametime decision for the game.

"He took all the reps he was supposed to and he did throw," head coach Ron Rivera said after practice. "It was a good sign."

Cam Newton 'not limited' in practice Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said Thursday he was on pace to play Week 1 against Tampa Bay. On Friday, he put his words into action, participating in the team's final practice session before the game.

"He's not limited today," running back DeAngelo Williams yelled to reporters, per ESPN.

Newton, who fractured his ribs two weeks ago against Patriots in preseason, was seen throwing passes in Friday's session. Coach Ron Rivera indicated the previous day that a final decision on who would play Week 1 would come game day. It remains to be seen if that's still the case.

Cam Newton is way too risky to trust Week 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has had his best games against the Buccaneers in the past. However, Week 1 may be different, as he battles an injury to his ribs. Newton is also dealing with a thin offensive line and different weapons in the passing game. His top target may be rookie wideout Kelvin Benjamin – and that’s not a good thing.

Newton has a 10-to-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio in six meetings against Tampa Bay, by far his best numbers against any opponent. He’s also averaging 235.7 yards per game. In his last meeting in Tampa, Newton compiled for 221 yards through the air while completing 23 of 32 passes. He added two touchdowns and no interceptions. He has also rushed for at least 40 yards in each of his last three meetings. However, his injury may limit his mobility, so another 40-plus-yard effort may seem unlikely come Week 1.

Because he hasn't been able to fully participate in practice this week, Newton could end up as a game-time decision. If you drafted Newton, chances are you have a second quarterback on your roster. Fantasy owners should have him prepared to start in case Newton is a no-go in Week 1. Even if Newton plays, he may be too risky of an option because of his injury.

Cam Newton might be game-time decision


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"We increased his work today, and again, tomorrow will be a big day," Rivera said, per The Charlotte Observer. "It’s all about how he feels the next day. I told that to you guys yesterday. We were concerned a little bit coming out of yesterday’s practice. We wanted to see how he was this morning. He had a lot of energy today, moved away pretty well. We stayed to the schedule. He wanted to do a few more things but we slowed him down."


Cam Newton 'wasn't full go' Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
