2016 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 Manningís 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 seasonís 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 seasonís 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 Ė 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 Stewart, Newton practice on Thursday     -- Thu Oct 13 12:00 pm --

Panthers should have starting QB and RB in Week 6
The fact that Cam is back out here after his most vigorous exercise in a week and a half is a good sign for Sunday for sure. (Joe Person on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Cam Newton and Jonathan Stewart were at practice for the Panthers on Thursday indicating there are on track to play in Week 6 against the Saints. The Saints porous defense makes Newton an easy QB1 and Stewart a viable RB2.
Injury Newton limited in practice     -- Wed Oct 12 4:49 pm --

Still in concussion protocol
The Panthers franchise quarterback was limited in his return to practice Wednesday as he continued to work through concussion protocol, coach Ron Rivera said. Newton arrived on a cart with his cleats and helmet in tow, putting him possibly on track to play Sunday against the Saints minus any setbacks. (

FF Today's Take: This is great news and should give Cam Newton owners a little hope heading into a juicy match up against the Saints. Expect the team to update the status of their quarterback by the end of the week.
Injury Cam Newton expected to miss Week 5     -- Fri Oct 7 9:00 am --

Cam Newton and left tackle Michael Oher are expected to miss Monday nightís game against Tampa Bay as they remain in the NFLís concussion protocol. Carolina also will likely be without No. 1 cornerback James Bradberry (turf toe), running back Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) and defensive tackle Vernon Butler (high ankle sprain). (Charlotte Observer)

FF Today's Take: The Panthers don't play until Monday night so the possibility exists that Newton could be cleared in time but for now, Derek Anderson should be the expected starter. Anderson will be a worthwhile QB streamer going up a Bucs defense that's giving up 300-yard passing days to Matt Ryan and Carson Palmer.
Injury Cam suffers concussion in loss to Falcons     -- Mon Oct 3 5:25 pm --

Week 5 status uncertain
Ron Rivera said he has no idea about Cam Newton's status for next Monday night. (Steve Reed on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: About the only thing working in Newton's favor is that Carolina will have one more day than usual to gain clearance as the Panthers host the Bucs on Monday night. Unfortunately, that doesn't do much for his owners, who aren't going to have any realistic options outside of backup Derek Anderson to turn to if he can't go. As such, owners should prepare to be without Newton this week.
Cameron Artis-Payne to start     -- Fri Sep 23 1:35 pm --

RBBC expected
RE Panthers' RB plans: Cameron Artis-Payne will start, but will be by committee. Rivera said CAP would not necessarily get bulk of carries. (Joe Person on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Artis-Payne and Fozzy Whittaker should handle the majority of running back carries with a little Mike Tolbert mixed in. Artis-Payne has some FLEX appeal but is difficult to trust given the committee approach plus Cam Newton's rushing presence around the goaline.
