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.

Injury Cam Newton resumes throwing
Shoulder surgery on March 30th
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jun 26, 11:50 am

Carolina Panthers
"Cool," Cam Newton said when asked how it felt to throw for the first time in nearly six months, "a lot of anticipation. Obviously, it's still not 100 percent, but seeing the ball come out of my hand in a throwing motion was good." "When I say it's not 100 percent, I'm noting the range of motion part," Newton said. "Like if you sleep with your legs hanging off your bed the whole night, you're going to wake up and be super stiff. Or like sitting on your hands, or sitting in an awkward position and finally getting up and moving - that's how I feel." (Panthers.com)

FFToday's Take: Newton is recovering from March 30th shoulder surgery and thinks he'll be ready to go by training camp in late July. More than likely the Panthers will ease Newton into camp, limiting his reps. For now, there's no concern about his availability for Week 1.
