2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Cam Newton has seen his average fantasy points per game drop each season since taking the league by storm as a rookie in 2011. When healthy, he has produced top-10 results by relying on his rushing totals. All signs indicate he will be unrestricted and ready to run for the opening of the 2015 season, which should make him a popular choice after the top four or five quarterbacks are off the board. Without a deep talented pool of pass catchers and a gaping hole at left tackle, choosing Newton to anchor your fantasy team comes with plenty of risk. Over the past two regular seasons, Newton has logged nine games with more than 25 fantasy points and 13 games with less than 20 fantasy points. More recently, his numbers are quite comparable to that of Russell Wilson, another dual-threat quarterback with lackluster receivers on a conservative rushing offense. In 2014, the two were almost identical in passing attempts, completions, passing yardage, rushing attempts and total touchdowns, with Wilson getting the slight edge. Wilson is currently being selected almost two rounds ahead of Newton in 12-team formats, making the Panthers quarterback a better value. Anyone drafting Newton should also carry the insurance of a quality backup in case of injury. The Panthers would probably become more conservative if forced to rely on their backup quarterback. Nevertheless, the team resigned Derek Anderson to return as Newton’s backup. He completed 67 percent of his passes over five games last season and is capable of keeping the offense afloat if called upon again in 2015.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jonathan Stewart expected to play
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jan 11, 3:42 pm

Panthers' RB Jonathan Stewart, who has missed past three games with a foot injury, is expected to play Sunday vs. Seattle, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Stewart last played in Week 14 but should be able to practice and play this barring any setback. Even with Cam Newton vulturing touchdowns, Stewart will be one of the safer running backs in the divisional round.


Panthers to use RBBC with Stewart out
A situation to avoid in Week 15
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 17, 11:27 am

Carolina Panthers
Rivera expects committee approach with RBs vs. Giants w/ Jonathan Stewart out. Tolbert, Fozzy and Artis-Payne all should get carries. (Joe Person on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fozzy Whittaker may get the "start" but it's going to be difficult to trust him as anything more than FLEX play in Week 15. Don't be surprised if Cam Newton takes on more of the rushing load with Stewart out.


Funchess draws first start for Panthers
Rookie WR slots in after injury to Corey Brown
By: John Canario | Fri Nov 20, 4:25 pm

Carolina Panthers
Rookie wide receiver Devin Funchess will make his first start for the Carolina Panthers as they put their 9-0 record on the line Sunday against Washington. Funchess moved into the lineup after starter Corey Brown suffered a shoulder injury in Thursday's practice. "It's kind of another achievement knocked off the chart. I don't sound excited, but I am excited about it," Funchess said Friday. Funchess, who has 12 catches for 202 yards and a touchdown this season, was a second-round draft pick by Carolina out of Michigan. He had a hamstring injury that kept him out all of the preseason. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: At 6-foot-5, Funchess provides a big target for Cam Newton, but he's not particularly fast and doesn't have great hands. Until he produces, the first-year WR is worth nothing more than a stash on your bench.
