Huddle Up: Newton is a QB1 because of his rushing ability, and any boost Smith provides to his passing numbers will be icing on the cake. For his part, Smith should deliver some big plays, but he probably won't provide enough consistency to be more than a WR4.
Posted: 7/7/2018 8:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Accuracy continues to be an issue for Newton, and his MVP season is probably an outlier as far as his passing ability goes. However, his production as a runner allows him to produce QB1 numbers even when struggles throwing the ball. Newton has never rushed for fewer than five touchdowns in a season.

Huddle Up: Newton had a solid season despite coming off of a shoulder injury. He'll remain a midrange QB1 option in fantasy next season.
Posted: 1/24/2018 6:10am ET
Huddle Up: Newton had a solid season coming off a shoulder injury with 3,302 passing yards, 22 touchdowns to 16 picks, a career-high 754 rushing yards and six rushing scores. He'll be a midrange QB1 next season.
Posted: 1/14/2018 7:24am ET
Huddle Up: Although an MRI exam on Newton's knee came back positive, the injury was not considered serious and he would have been able to play this weekend if the Panthers had advanced in the playoffs. He should be considered a low-end QB1 heading into the 2018 season.
Posted: 1/7/2018 5:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton did it all for the Panthers, giving his team a chance to win against a spirited defense in a hostile environment with Devin Funchess, the No. 1 receiver, playing with his left arm hanging by his side. Newton even left the game briefly after a hard hit shook him up, forcing Derek Anderson into the game briefly. He finished the regular season with 3,302 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and six more scores on the ground.
Posted: 1/5/2018 2:02pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has not posted great passing numbers over the past several months but has been able to successfully run the ball during those games. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues this week.
Posted: 1/4/2018 11:32am ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been playing with an ailing throwing shoulder for much of the year but has toughened it out. Overall he struggled in his two games versus the New Orleans Saints this season, making him a risky starter in fantasy playoff games.
Posted: 1/3/2018 2:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been up and down this season and has been held to under 200 passing yards in five of the last six games. He has been successful running the ball, which helps his fantasy value. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback this week.
Posted: 12/29/2017 3:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has not posted great passing yard totals over the last several games but does have eight total touchdowns in the last four games. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback this week.
Posted: 12/28/2017 12:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been on the injury report for most of the season but has been able to play each week and should be on the field in Week 17. He has been held to under 200 yards in six of his last eight games but has 12 touchdowns and three interceptions during that span. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback.
Posted: 12/27/2017 2:28pm ET
Huddle Up: It's nothing new, as Newton has been taking off or working on a limited basis in mid-week practices all season as a precaution after shoulder surgery last offseason. Nothing to see here.
Posted: 12/24/2017 1:50pm ET
Huddle Up: It wasn't pretty, and he failed to throw for big yardage against the league's worst pass defense. But Newton punched in a rushing touchdown in the final minute of regulation to send the Panthers to the playoffs. Unfortunately, he didn't do much for his fantasy owners in their playoff games.
Posted: 12/22/2017 3:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton should have a favorable matchup this week and likely will be a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.
Posted: 12/21/2017 1:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton should have a favorable matchup this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and is coming off a successful Week 15 performance. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 12/20/2017 6:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton is coming off a four-touchdown performance in Week 15 and threw for at least 200 yards for the first time in four games. He can be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Posted: 12/17/2017 3:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton had a huge game against a soft Packers pass defense, helping his fantasy owners to a big stat line. He faces another very favorable matchup against the league's worst pass defense when the Buccaneers visit Bank of America Stadium in Week 16.
Posted: 12/15/2017 2:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been out or limited in early-week practices to rest his surgically repaired shoulder, but he hasn't miss any game starts this season. He remains a safe fantasy play against a porous Packers pass defense.
Posted: 12/14/2017 1:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been on the injury report for the last several weeks but is in no danger of missing the Week 15 game. He has been fairly quiet over the last three weeks in terms of his passing stats but has been making plays with his legs during that span. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues because the Green Bay Packer have struggled at times stopping the pass.
Posted: 12/13/2017 3:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been resting or limited in mid-week practices all season, resting his surgically repaired shoulder. He'll be fine once the game is played, and he has an excellent matchup against the Packers. Green Bay ranks 24th in the NFL in pass defense, and they have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game over the past five weeks.
Posted: 12/12/2017 6:55am ET
Huddle Up: The Packers have allowed 263 passing yards per game, and the 11 touchdowns through the air allowed is tied for most in the league. Newton hasn't thrown for 200 yards in three games, and he has some upside in the latter portion of the QB1 discussion.
Posted: 12/10/2017 2:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton had his struggles against a good Vikings defense, and the line would've been even worse if not for his long run in the final two minutes. He should find more room to operate against a Packers defense which allowed 21 points to the Browns in an overtime win.
Posted: 12/8/2017 12:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has struggled at times over the last several weeks but does have seven total touchdowns in the last three games. He will be facing a tough Minnesota Vikings defense but can be a possible low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted: 12/7/2017 12:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton should be able to play against the Minnesota Vikings despite being limited during practice. He has been held to under 200 yards passing in four of his last five games but does have six passing touchdowns in the last three games. Owners may consider benching Newton this week if they have better options because of his tough matchup.
Posted: 12/6/2017 3:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been sitting or limited in mid-week practices all season after offseason surgery, so it's no surprise. He'll play in Week 14 and the bigger concern is the tough matchup with the visiting Vikings.
Posted: 12/1/2017 3:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been on the injury report all season due to his surgically repaired shoulder, rested in mid-week sessions before going full Friday. By now you know the drill. As long as he is active he is a solid low-end QB1 across most fantasy formats, especially for his rushing ability.
Posted: 11/30/2017 12:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton will play in what is arguably Carolina's most important game of the season so far versus the New Orleans Saints. Despite his often erratic throws, Newton continues to be a QB1 candidate, thanks in large part to his running ability.
Posted: 11/29/2017 1:58pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has toughed out ailments before, so it will be a surprise if he can't suit up for an important divisional tilt with the New Orleans Saints. The Saints have defended the pass well this year, but Newton's legs are what make him dangerous. He remains a solid QB1.
Posted: 11/26/2017 6:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton was able to post nine runs for 28 yards and a touchdown to salvage the stat line. To make matters worse, Newton lost Greg Olsen after he aggravated his foot injury. He'll look to bounce back in Week 13 against the New Orleans Saints on the road.
Posted: 11/24/2017 1:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton is coming off one of his best performances in Week 10 and will have Greg Olsen back this week. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback this week against the New York Jets.
Posted: 11/23/2017 3:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton appears to be on track to play in Week 12 despite being limited during practice. He is coming off an outstanding Week 11 performance where he threw four touchdowns and should have success against the New York Jets. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 11/22/2017 3:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been limited in mid-week practices after offseason shoulder surgery, so this is a new ailment. The indications are that it isn't serious and he should be fine for Sunday's game at N.Y. Jets. The Jets are middle of the pack with 229.0 yards per game allowed through the air, but they have allowed 20 passing scores through 10 games with 35 pass play of 20 yards.
Posted: 11/13/2017 9:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has had an up-and-down year, but it's games like this one that prove he still might be in the upper echelon of NFL quarterbacks when it comes to fantasy football. The former No. 1 overall draft pick was pretty much able to do whatever he wanted, and with that potential on any given week, he's still very much a legitimate QB1. With the Panthers cruising right now, don't be surprised if Newton keeps it going.
Posted: 11/11/2017 12:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been dealing with his shoulder injury for the entire season but should be ready to play this week. He has one passing touchdown and three interceptions over the last three games bur also has a rushing touchdown during that span. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues and could be benched if owners have better options.
Posted: 11/10/2017 3:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been on the injury report all season due to his surgically repaired shoulder, but he hasn't missed any starts. Start him as you normally would in fantasy against a Miami pass defense ranking 19th in the NFL, with 23 pass plays of 20 or more yards allowed.
Posted: 11/9/2017 11:46am ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been limited during practice over the last few weeks but should be ready to play in Week 10. He has been held to under 250 yards passing in each of the last four games but has rushed for at least 50 yards in three of those games. He can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback this week but is not a must-start option like in the past.
Posted: 11/5/2017 2:18pm ET
Huddle Up: The Panthers probably don't want Newton leading the team in rushing, but fantasy owners are pretty happy with the outcome. The highlight of the day was a 34-yard tuck and run in the first quarter to jump-start the offense early. He'll look for better results against the visiting Dolphins on Monday night in Week 10.
Posted: 11/3/2017 12:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton is looking to bounce back from two disappointing performances but will be facing a solid Atlanta Falcons defense. He can be a low-end No. 1 in deeper leagues because of some of the quarterbacks on bye this week.
Posted: 11/2/2017 11:51am ET
Huddle Up: Newton should be able to play in Week 9 but has struggled over the last several games. He has thrown two touchdowns and six interceptions over the last three games and has only two 300-yard games in 2017. He could still be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback this week because there are six teams on bye.
Posted: 11/1/2017 1:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has strung together three abysmal performances in a row, throwing six interceptions to just two touchdowns in those three games. To make matters worse, Newton lost his No.1 receiver this week as Kelvin Benjamin was traded to the Buffalo Bills. He does still have Devin Funchess, Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel, among others, to throw to, but Newton is no longer a viable QB1 start.
Posted: 10/29/2017 1:57pm ET
Huddle Up: It's never a great thing when Newton leads the offense in rushing, as that means the attack wasn't terribly balanced and he didn't receive much help on the ground. Jonathan Stewart did score, but he was bottled up most of the afternoon. The team will look for more balanced production in a key NFC South game at home against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 9.
Posted: 10/27/2017 4:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton is coming off two disappointing games where he threw five interceptions and only one touchdown during that span. He will have most of his weapons available in the passing game and will be facing a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that has struggled against the pass. He can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues this week.
Posted: 10/26/2017 12:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has struggled over the last two with five interceptions and only one touchdown during that span. He should have all of his weapons available this week and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback in most leagues because of the matchup.
Posted: 10/25/2017 8:41pm ET
Huddle Up: No other NFC team has allowed more passing yards per game this season than Tampa Bay, so Newton will be on track to churn out a monstrous performance for his owners in Week 8. True, the former No. 1 overall pick is coming off arguably his worst game of the campaign against the Bears, but that should only further motivate an angry Newton to deliver on Sunday opposite a division foe.
Posted: 10/25/2017 12:11pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has had two games to forget the last two weeks. He has thrown five interceptions to only one touchdown and has only averaged 225 passing yards in those contests. This is the week to get back on track, though, as Newton and the Panthers take on one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He's a fine QB1 on paper.
Posted: 10/22/2017 2:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton was under duress all day, officially sacked five times while he also lost a fumble which was returned for a touchdown and an interception was also taken back to the house. The Panthers will look to regroup for Week 8 when the Buccaneers pay a visit to the Queen City.
Posted: 10/20/2017 3:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been on the injury report all season as he takes it easy during the week with his surgically repaired shoulder. He hasn't missed any playing time and remains a fantasy must-start option across the board.
Posted: 10/19/2017 11:42am ET
Huddle Up: Newton is coming off a disappointing Week 6 performance but has thrown for at least 300 yards in two of the last three games. He may be missing a few of his pass catchers this week but could still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues against the Chicago Bears.
Posted: 10/18/2017 1:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton's limited status has been pretty standard lately, as the team limits wear and tear on his surgically repaired shoulder during the week. Any issues or lingering soreness hasn't kept him from game time, so start him as you normally would.
Posted: 10/13/2017 7:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Carolina's ground game is a mess right now, and the Panthers are currently tied for 29th in yards per carry. Stewart is averaging just 2.9 yards per carry, and he has 17 rushing yards over the last two games combined. You are better off benching him until he shows signs of life.
