2013 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 Manning’s 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 season’s 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 season’s 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 – 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 Cam Newton out four months     -- Tue Mar 18 4:00 pm --

Carolina QB will have ankle surgery
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will undergo ankle surgery Wednesday, the team confirmed Tuesday. According to the team, the recovery will take up to four months, which coincides with the start of training camp. (Charlotte Observer)

FF Today's Take: Newton battled an ankle issue during the latter stages of the 2013 season. Rest did not cure the situation so surgery to "tighten up the ligaments" is now on the table. The timetable should allow for Newton to be back on the field for the start of training camp but he'll miss valuable time with whatever receivers the Panthers add to the roster between now and then.
Newton wants long-term deal     -- Mon Feb 17 5:30 pm --

...but won't hold out for new contract
"Hopefully I will be able to get that long-term deal because Charlotte is a place that I can call home.” Cam Newton is among the top priorities for the team this offseason, along with defensive end Greg Hardy, followed by the team’s other 20 unrestricted free agents. Newton is set to earn nearly $3.4 million in 2014 with a cap hit of just more than $7 million. (Charlotte Observer)

FF Today's Take: Newton's rookie deal was a four-year, $22 million contract in 2011. While a contract extension this off-season would be optimal for both parties, Newton has stated that he won't hold out of training camp for a new deal.
