Cam Newton: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Newton underwent successful ankle surgery on Wednesday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Newton's recovery period is an estimated four months, slating his return around for the start of training camp. The fourth-year quarterback out of Auburn will look to repeat a great 2013 season in which his passing touchdown to interception ratio was 24:13. The loss of left tackle Jordan Gross and a weak group of receivers might make things a bit harder on Newton, though.
Newton is slated to have ankle surgery Wednesday, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. The procedure is said to be designed to tighten up the ligaments in Newton's ankle.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Person adds that Newton's recovery period is estimated to be up to four months, a timeframe that would allow the QB to be ready for the start of training camp, barring any setbacks.
Newton said that he will not hold out for a new contract this offseason, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Newton will be entering the final season of his rookie contract, though the Panthers can exercise control of him for a fifth season at the average salary of the league's 10 highest-paid quarterbacks. The club option, which needs to be picked up by May 3, is merely a formality as it gives the Panthers another year to work on a long-term extension, if things don't work out this offseason. In all likelihood, Newton and the Panthers will reach agreement on a huge contract at some point before Week 1. He's well aware of this reality and thus has no reason to speculate about a holdout in February.
Newton completed 16-of-25 passes for 267 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's playoff loss to the 49ers. He also added 54 rushing yards on ten carries.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Newton passed for nearly 100 yards more Sunday than he did in this season's previous meeting with San Francisco. Additionally, a team-high 54 rushing yards brought his all-purpose total above 300 yards on the day. However, two interceptions and a few failed quarterback sneaks on the goal-line limited Newton's fantasy contribution in some respects. After an impressive third year, Newton figures to enter next season as a coveted option at quarterback.
Newton completed 15-of-27 passes for 149 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, while also rushing 12 times for a season-high 72 yards Sunday versus Atlanta.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

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.
