Huddle Up: Owners should be cautiously optimistic here. The fact he has been allowed to throw without supervision is a positive sign in and of itself, but it sounds as if Newton could still very much use the extra month-plus to complete the healing process. It seems highly unlikely the Panthers will expose Newton to much, if any, action in the preseason. Assuming he remains on his current track, however, he should still be considered a midrange to low-end QB1 in fantasy.

Huddle Up: Newton appears to be making good progress in his recovery from shoulder surgery and should be ready for the start of the regular season. The team is looking for Newton to run less, which will hurt his fantasy value a bit, but it could also keep him healthy during the season. Newton probably can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.
Posted: 7/15/2017 1:56pm ET
Huddle Up: McCaffrey should have a role in the passing game this season, so it will help him to build chemistry with Newton leading up to the season. McCaffrey probably will also be involved in the running game, which makes him a solid option for fantasy owners. He should be considered a No. 3 running back or flex option in leagues.
Posted: 7/10/2017 1:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton does need to take fewer hits, and fewer runs, naturally, will help in that endeavor. Cam can still be utilized close to the goal line, though. He's a borderline QB1as long as he's healthy.
Posted: 7/10/2017 9:51am ET
Huddle Up: We may not see 45 total touchdowns from Cam again. There are six years of data on him, and the only aberration among it is his MVP year. That's not to say he can't be a really good fantasy quarterback. He's someone to consider after the elite tier has been drafted.
Posted: 6/29/2017 6:26am ET
Huddle Up: Newton completed just 52.9 percent of his passes and tossed 16 fewer touchdowns than in his MVP 2015 campaign. His rushing numbers were cut in half as well. As the line goes, he goes. He's coming off of shoulder surgery, but he's expected to be ready for camp. He'll be an upper-middle option as a QB1 in fantasy.
Posted: 6/27/2017 9:59am ET
Huddle Up: Newton seems to be onboard with the changes Carolina was hoping to bring about when it added Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel in the draft this April. Even though it might be hard for owners to adjust their thinking on Newton, the reality of the situation is 2017 will probably mark the official start of his transition into being more of a mobile - as opposed to a running - quarterback. A return to top-five fantasy quarterback status cannot and should not be ruled out.
Posted: 6/26/2017 7:42am ET
Huddle Up: Newton fell back to the pack a bit after his MVP 2015 season, but he remains a high-end option at the position after the elite tier is drafted.
Posted: 6/16/2017 12:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Rivera initially said following the surgery that his quarterback would start throwing 12 weeks after the procedure, which is next week. Newton's fantasy star is dimming a bit as the Panthers want to reduce their reliance on his running ability, although he still figures to generate more fantasy value on the ground than most quarterbacks for at least another year or two. He should be considered a mid- to low-end QB in most fantasy leagues in 2017.
Posted: 6/12/2017 3:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton will not throw until training camp and probably will be limited during practice so his surgically repaired shoulder can heal. Newton will have more weapons to work with in the passing game this season and will still be a threat to run. Owners in all leagues should consider him a No. 1 quarterback as long as he is healthy.
Posted: 6/5/2017 12:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton is ahead of schedule in his rehab process, but it's unclear just how far away he is from being fully recovered from his shoulder surgery. It's not likely that he'll see much preseason action, but he remains a QB1 candidate as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks.
Posted: 6/5/2017 10:24am ET
Huddle Up: Newton has obvious ability to dominate but a fair amount of risk will be assumed by prospective drafters. Returning from rotator cuff surgery is no joke. The veteran is a midrange QB1 in most situations.
Posted: 5/8/2017 5:02pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton probably will be sidelined until at least training camp because of his shoulder and could be limited during camp and preseason as well. He should be ready for the start of the regular season and will be looking to improve on his 2016 season. He will have more weapons to work with the passing game this season and should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 4/21/2017 12:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton had a miserable season by his standards last season, although his offensive line and the bum shoulder didn't help him much in that regard. While a bounce-back year could be in order, the primary focus of the Panthers' offseason has been to cut down on the amount of punishment Newton receives, which should mean a decline in his number of rushing attempts. If that happens, Newton becomes more of a midrange fantasy QB1 instead of the elite one he was in 2015.
Posted: 4/20/2017 7:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton was a perennial top-five fantasy option at his position prior to last year's injury-plagued campaign. If he slips in drafts, he could end up being a good value pick in 2017.
Posted: 4/20/2017 4:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton will be seeking to follow up a season in which he was one of the biggest disappointments in all of fantasy football. Fortunately, it looks like he'll at least be healthy from the onset, and considering how he's descended draft boards everywhere, he could be a good value pick later on for owners.
Posted: 4/17/2017 8:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton's coming off a season in which he registered by far the lowest quarterback rating of his career -- 75.8 -- while also rushing for a career-low 359 yards. In other words, he was one of the biggest disappointments in all of fantasy football last year. Even though he'll also be trying to come back from surgery, owners might be able to view him as a value pick later on in drafts, but he certainly no longer warrants an early selection like in years past.
Posted: 3/30/2017 10:15am ET
Huddle Up: If Newton fully heals in time he could be ready to participate in training camp, but don't be surprised if he doesn't see much preseason action. Newton is coming off a season to forget -- arguably the worst of his six-year career. As such, drafting him as more than a low-end QB1 is ill-advised.
Posted: 3/30/2017 5:34am ET
Huddle Up: Newton is slated to miss most of the offseason after surgery to repair a partially torn rotator cuff that he played the last three games with. They addressed the offensive line and are planning to add a running back in the draft. Newton should be in the midrange of the QB1 area in fantasy. However, coming off a down season and an injury adds some caution flags.
Posted: 3/26/2017 10:39am ET
Huddle Up: Newton will have about four full months before the start of training camp and has a little more than five months to recover in order to be ready for the season opener. By all accounts, the team is counting on him making a transition into being more of a pocket quarterback, which would make him far less valuable in fantasy. Between the surgery and his changing game, Newton may no longer make sense as a fantasy QB1 anymore.
Posted: 3/21/2017 12:33pm ET
Huddle Up: That timetable will put Newton right on the brink of being available for the start of the preseason. The Panthers may choose to hold Newton out for all of the offseason to as to ensure a complete and safe recovery. Assuming Newton does make a full recovery and is fully healthy for the start of the regular season, he remains a mid- to low-end QB1 option.
Posted: 1/9/2017 4:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton is one of the most dynamic players in football, but his propensity for inaccuracy clearly led to the demise of the Panthers and himself. Newton's running ability will always make him a QB1 consideration, however. Even with his worst season so far in his career, he still finished as a high-end QB2.
Posted: 1/2/2017 4:04pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton dealt with various injury this season but should have a normal offseason unless the injury does not heal with rest. Newton had a down year compared to previous seasons but still posted solid numbers for owners. He may to less running in 2017 but should still be a fine starting quarterback for fantasy owners.
Posted: 1/2/2017 3:39pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton rushed for 359 yards and five touchdowns in 2016 but also took a lot of hard hits during the season, so the Panthers likely will look for Newton to become a better pocket passer. He is a solid quarterback when he is healthy and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season.
Posted: 1/1/2017 7:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton's Week 17 line was a snapshot of his season. He passes for just 3,509 yards, 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while completing just short of 53 percent of his passes. Newton was an MVP last season, and was a high-round pick in most fantasy leagues. He was one of the biggest disappointments in fantasy football in 2016, and didn't likely lead many to championships.
Posted: 1/1/2017 7:42am ET
Huddle Up: Newton was listed as questionable on the injury report despite being a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 30, after having been limited in the team's two other sessions earlier in the week. He's still worthy of consideration as a low-end QB1 option even though he has posted fewer than 200 passing yards in three of his last four games due to Tampa Bay's shaky pass defense.
Posted: 12/30/2016 3:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton should be able to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and likely will receive his normal workload. He has been held to under 200 yards in three of his last four games and has five touchdowns and three interceptions during that span. Newton can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues despite his recent play.
Posted: 12/29/2016 5:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton hasn't lived up to expectations this year, but his running ability and a matchup against Tampa Bay's shaky pass defense make him a low-end QB1 in Week 17.
Posted: 12/28/2016 2:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has had a season to forget, completing just below 53% of his passes. Despite his running ability, he's notorious for being one of the most inaccurate quarterbacks in the league. Even so, he has a favorable matchup versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and should be started in Week 17 fantasy title tilts.
Posted: 12/24/2016 3:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton had a very disappointing end to a disappointing fantasy season for the defending NFL MVP. He'll look to rebound in 2017 and will still be a must-start fantasy option.
Posted: 12/23/2016 2:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has struggled at times this season but is coming off one of his better games of the season when he threw for 300 yards and two touchdowns. Newton can be considered decent No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 12/22/2016 11:15am ET
Huddle Up: Newton is coming off a solid Week 15 performance where he finished with 300 yards and two touchdowns but has thrown for at least two touchdowns in only two of his last eight games. He can still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.
Posted: 12/21/2016 2:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton recorded only his third 300-yard game of the season in Week 15 and has six touchdowns over his last four games. He has not had a great season so far but can still be a decent No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 12/17/2016 10:16am ET
Huddle Up: Newton was limited for most of the week but should be ready to play against the Washington Redskins. He has thrown for less than 200 yards in three of his last four games but does have six total touchdowns during that span. Owners can consider Newton as a No. 1 quarterback because of the matchup.
Posted: 12/15/2016 10:25am ET
Huddle Up: Newton underwent an MRI on his shoulder earlier this week, but he may be resting his shoulder during practice. Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if he is in any danger of missing Week 15. Newton should be a solid No. 1 quarterback if he is able to play.
Posted: 12/11/2016 3:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has been held to under 200 passing yards in three of his last four games but has thrown at least one touchdown in each of his last six games. He will be facing the Washington Redskins in Week 15 and can be considered a No. 1 quarterback.
Posted: 12/4/2016 5:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Derek Anderson started and promptly through an interception on the first play from scrimmage, so it's unlikely the punishment will last very long.
Posted: 11/27/2016 10:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has struggled by his standards, but he remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues for his ability with his arm and his legs. He has a tough matchup in Week 14 at Seattle, however.
Posted: 11/16/2016 8:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton has struggled over the past three games, tossing just two TDs and running for another, but he should roll against a Saints pass defense which ranks dead last in the NFL, allowing 292.7 yards per game through nine outings.
Posted: 11/13/2016 1:58pm ET
Huddle Up: The leg work obviously helped his value for the day. Newton's Panthers host the New Orleans Saints on a short week this Thursday night, which should prove to be another quality fantasy day for Superman.
Posted: 11/6/2016 8:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton head home to face another above-average defense when the Chiefs visit Charlotte in Week 10. Regardless of the matchup, Newton remains a must-start across all fantasy formats.
Posted: 10/30/2016 2:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton was not asked to do much after the team opened up a big lead early in the game, so he threw for less than 30 times for only the second time this season. He is scheduled to face the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9 and can be a fine starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 10/27/2016 9:31am ET
Huddle Up: Newton posted decent numbers in his first game back from the concussion and will continue to run the ball when he needs to moving forward. He will be facing a solid Arizona Cardinals defense in Week 8 but can be a starting option in all leagues.
Posted: 10/16/2016 6:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton made it through the game without any big hits to the head after exiting his last game in Week 4 due to concussion. He'll have two weeks to rest with a bye in Week 7.
Posted: 10/16/2016 9:07am ET
Huddle Up: Newton will have a favorable matchup this week and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 10/15/2016 2:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton will have a favorable matchup this week against the New Orleans Saints and should be a starting quarterback in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 10/14/2016 3:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton looks like he is ready to play against the New Orleans Saints and will have a favorable matchup for fantasy owners. Owners should check the inactive list to make sure he is playing, but Newton should be starting in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 10/14/2016 8:03am ET
Huddle Up: Newton completed 66.7% of his passes, threw for 646 yards and tossed seven touchdowns to one interception in two games against the New Orleans Saints last season. He also added 82 yards rushing and another score. He's a strong play this week.
Posted: 10/13/2016 12:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Newton is on track to play in Week 6 and will have a favorable matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Owners in all leagues should have Newton in their starting lineups.
Posted: 10/13/2016 8:20am ET
Huddle Up: It's a good sign for him to return for a salivating matchup against the New Orleans Saints. He remains a high-end option at quarterback.
