2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Cam Newton's 270 completions in 2017 were only nine more than Ryan Tannehill had in two fewer games and tied Tyrod Taylor for the fewest in the NFL amongst quarterbacks who played at least fifteen games. Newton has never relied on volume to buoy his strongest fantasy seasons but his dip in completion percentage and running stats made him one of the most disappointing fantasy players of the 2016 fantasy season. Many owners will likely project Newton's 2017 to land in the middle ground between last year's lackluster campaign and 2015's banner year. The common denominator in Newton's fantasy successes and failures are linked to his work on the ground. Simply put, his best years have come when the added value of rushing yards and touchdowns pushed him ahead of his peers.

Likewise, his worst seasons offer substantial declines in fantasy points produced from the running game. Consequently, Newton's steady five year decline in YPC may foreshadow another down year. Newton had shoulder surgery in March so he might not be at full speed when training camp opens but the team still expects him to be ready by Week 1. Due to his ongoing concussion potential and the league's protocol on quarterbacks taking hits to the head, anyone drafting Newton will also need to invest in a reliable QB2. Ultimately, the below average floor and health risks associated with Carolina's Superman should drop him into fringe starter territory despite his immense upside.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Newton suffered knee injuries during Saints game
Injuries considered minor, no concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jan 24, 9:30 am

Carolina Panthers
Tucked into the league’s report that all concussion protocol procedures were followed regarding Cam Newton‘s fall late in a playoff loss to the Saints is something that could be a bigger issue for them this off-season. “An MRI of the knee the day after the game confirmed ligament and cartilage damage and very extensive swelling in the knee,” the league report noted. A Panthers spokesman said this morning that the MRI did not show a level of damage to require surgery. (ProFootballTalk)

FFToday's Take: The fact that surgery wasn't required is a signal the injuries were minor but it won't be a surprise if Newton is limited during off-season practices. The Panthers have made a change at offensive coordinator, removing Mike Shula and bringing in Norv Turner.


Norv Turner set to run offense in Carolina
Spent 2017 out of football after resigning from Vikings in 2016

Carolina Panthers
Source say the Panthers have “agreed in principle” for Norv Turner to become their OC. (NFL.com - Tiffany Blackmon)

FFToday's Take: Turner's offenses are vertical-based in their nature - good for Cam Newton - but tend to feature deep drops - which may not be the best thing for Newton. While Turner tends to serve as a boon to running backs, he also has very little experience with dual-threat quarterbacks. HC Ron Rivera obviously opted for familiarity over fit here, making for what seems like an odd marriage between coordinator and quarterback.


Injury Greg Olsen misses practice Thursday
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 30, 11:30 am

Carolina Panthers
Devin Funchess caught passes today (from Cam Newton). Christian McCaffrey full participation. No Greg Olsen. Thomas Davis worked on the side with trainers. (Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Olsen isn't off to a great start this week after leaving last week's game early with pain in his foot. He reportedly didn't suffer an new damage but he appears to be a long shot to play against the Saints in Week 13. Veteran Ed Dickson would start if Olsen sits.
