2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Newton is one of the most talented quarterbacks in the league, so it's been frustrating to see Carolina do such a poor job of surrounding him with playmakers at the receiver position. That frustration...

Newton (back) is active and will start Sunday's game against the Browns, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Newton has been given the green light by doctors and will be back under center, after missing just one game due to his back injury. He will wear a protective vest, but he still may be a bit tender just 12 days after the accident, so he may be more tentative than usual to escape the pocket and make plays happen with his feet. Plus, if the Browns defense is hemorrhaging rushing yards like it did last week, Newton may spend much of the day handing the ball off to Jonathan Stewart.
Newton (back) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Browns, the Charlotte Observer's Joe Person reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This news makes it all but certain that Newton will be under center Sunday afternoon. Head coach Ron Rivera said Newton is "on track" to start and that "everything is positive" regarding the quarterback's injury. You'll want to confirm his status Sunday before using him (he still needs to be officially cleared by the doctors), but Newton looks like he will be safe to deploy, though he may not need to go to the air very frequently against the Browns if the running game is gashing Cleveland's D like the Bengals did last week.
Newton (back) practiced fully Thursday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. Barring a setback, coach Ron Rivera said that he "probably" expects Newton to start Sunday versus the Browns, according to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

During Newton's media session, he relayed that he's experienced no discomfort in practice the past two days. While admitting he must be "100 percent" for the Panthers to clear him, Rivera's eventual decision will be predicated on Newton's ability to avoid an aggravation of his back in advance of Sunday's game. Expect Rivera to make the call between Newton and Derek Anderson on Friday.
Newton (back) handled all first-team reps in the individual portion of drills Thursday, Joe Person of Charlotte Observer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The development comes one day removed from Newton splitting reps with his backup, Derek Anderson, and could mean that the former is on track to start in Week 16 against the Browns. Such a decision is expected to be made by coach Ron Rivera on Friday, which won't leave owners in limbo heading into the weekend.
Newton (back) split reps with Derek Anderson in practice Wednesday, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. Afterward, coach Ron Rivera told NFL Network, "I like what I saw. Tomorrow will be a big day, especially in AM, to see where he is."

2014

2013

Newton has been such a controversial and oft-discussed quarterback it's easy to forget he's been in the NFL for only two years. Newton failed to improve upon his stellar rookie year, compiling fewer passing yards, passing touchdowns and rushing touchdowns in 2012. As a result, he scored 88 fewer fantasy points, leading many to claim he was a bust. Nonetheless, he still threw for nearly 4,000 yards, turned in improved efficiency at 8.0 YPA, decreased his interceptions to 12 and managed to run for more than 700 yards and eight scores. No matter how you slice it, that's one heck of a season for any passer, especially one in his second year in the league. We shouldn't let Newton's abnormal rookie stats cloud our judgment of just how productive he was in his sophomore campaign. One of the easiest ways for Newton's fantasy performance to improve is simply by throwing the ball more often – something that could very well happen this year. Newton's 485 passing attempts ranked him only 19th in the NFL last year. If that total jumps to around 550, you're looking at a player who could easily lead the league in fantasy points. On top of all that, you can expect Newton's rushing totals to remain steady. Quarterback rushing totals are the most consistent of all fantasy football stats – one reason Newton was actually able to improve upon his 706 rushing yards as a rookie. Newton also had 14 carries inside the opponent's five-yard line in 2012 and converted seven for scores, so you can expect the Panthers will keep calling his number from in close.

2012

After he completed just 42.1 percent of his passes and averaged just 5.3 yards per attempt in the preseason, Newton’s total of 854 yards and three touchdowns passing and 71 yards and two touchdowns rushing in Weeks 1 and 2 couldn’t have been much more shocking. If there were something more shocking, it was that he hardly slowed down. Newton was too big, fast and strong to be contained as a runner, and he showed surprising accuracy and instincts as a passer, nearly becoming an NFL offense unto himself. By season’s end he threw for 4,051 yards (7.8 YPA), 21 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, while running for 706 yards (5.6 YPC) and 14 touchdowns. It wouldn’t surprise us if Newton were to regress slightly as a fantasy option, particularly due to a drop in rushing scores, but it’s also reasonable to expect some improvement from him as a passer in Year 2. Consider that Newton’s No. 2 WR from last year was Legedu Naanee, who finished 2011 with just 44 catches for 467 yards and a touchdown. The development of young wideouts Brandon LaFell and David Gettis could help Newton’s passing numbers improve, as could the addition of fourth-round wide receiver pick Joe Adams.

2011

With a huge arm, a big build and 4.59 speed, Newton’s potential is off the charts. But his one starting season in Division I was in Auburn’s one-read option offense, meaning Newton has next to no familiarity with the NFL tasks ahead of him. For that reason, it’s tough to see him winning the starting spot this year. But it’s also tough to see Jimmy Clausen going a full season without getting benched. Newton's only other competition is veteran Derek Anderson and it would be very surprising to see Anderson get the call before Newton. If he does get an extended run of playing time, he’s worth a look thanks to his running ability.
