2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
After scoring just 16 touchdowns during the 2010 season, the Panthers used the 1st pick in the 2011 draft to acquire Newton. With Newton leading the offense from Week 1, Carolina scored 48 touchdowns despite him not having the benefit of a full off-season, easily justifying his selection as the top overall pick. Along the way, Newton became the first rookie to throw for over 400 yards in his first game, set the rookie record for passing yards in one game with 432, set the NFL record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 14 and broke Peyton Manning’s record of 3,739 passing yards for a rookie, finishing the season with 4,051. He also threw for 21 touchdowns and amassed 706 rushing yards on his way to becoming the 4th ranked fantasy quarterback in 2011. By season’s end, Newton had put to rest any notion that he was not ready to lead a pro style offense. If you are looking for any reason to doubt Newton in 2012, here it is. He was held to under 200 yards passing in each of his last three games and over his last six games, he averaged just 194 passing yards per game. Of course, he more than made up for that by throwing for nine touchdowns and rushing for 295 yards and rushing for five touchdowns. At season’s end, Newton was the fourth ranked fantasy quarterback, with his 14 rushing touchdowns helping propel him to that spot. However, rushing touchdowns from the quarterback position can be volatile and as a precautionary tale, look no further than Michael Vick, whose rushing touchdowns plummeted from nine in 2010 to just one in 2011. Put another way – can we trust Newton to average one rushing touchdown every nine carries again in 2012? While Newton is a top five ranked fantasy quarterback for 2012, he carries far more risk than any of the other options surrounding him in the rankings.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jonathan Stewart expected to play     -- Mon Jan 11 3:42 pm --

Foot injury
Panthers' RB Jonathan Stewart, who has missed past three games with a foot injury, is expected to play Sunday vs. Seattle, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Stewart last played in Week 14 but should be able to practice and play this barring any setback. Even with Cam Newton vulturing touchdowns, Stewart will be one of the safer running backs in the divisional round.
Panthers to use RBBC with Stewart out     -- Thu Dec 17 11:27 am --

A situation to avoid in Week 15
Rivera expects committee approach with RBs vs. Giants w/ Jonathan Stewart out. Tolbert, Fozzy and Artis-Payne all should get carries. (Joe Person on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Fozzy Whittaker may get the "start" but it's going to be difficult to trust him as anything more than FLEX play in Week 15. Don't be surprised if Cam Newton takes on more of the rushing load with Stewart out.
Funchess draws first start for Panthers     -- Fri Nov 20 4:25 pm --

Rookie WR slots in after injury to Corey Brown
Rookie wide receiver Devin Funchess will make his first start for the Carolina Panthers as they put their 9-0 record on the line Sunday against Washington. Funchess moved into the lineup after starter Corey Brown suffered a shoulder injury in Thursday's practice. "It's kind of another achievement knocked off the chart. I don't sound excited, but I am excited about it," Funchess said Friday. Funchess, who has 12 catches for 202 yards and a touchdown this season, was a second-round draft pick by Carolina out of Michigan. He had a hamstring injury that kept him out all of the preseason. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: At 6-foot-5, Funchess provides a big target for Cam Newton, but he's not particularly fast and doesn't have great hands. Until he produces, the first-year WR is worth nothing more than a stash on your bench.
