Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is a great fantasy option in this week's matchup against the Detroit Lions. Newton has a great opportunity, the Lions are currently giving up an average of 18.8 points to the position and the Panthers offense has looked decent so far this season. The Panthers need to bounce back from their loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers in order to stay in contention for the playoffs, and Newton will be looking to rely on pass catchers Christian McCaffrey and Greg Olsen to make that happen this week.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had a disappointing game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Newton struggled against the Steelers pass rush and wasn't able to escape the pocket. Newton finished the game with 193 yards from 23 completions, two touchdowns, and an interception. Newton also rushed for 10 yards, but that wasn't enough to save fantasy owners this week.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is a great option this week for fantasy owners. Going up against the Pittsburgh Steelers who have given up the fifth most points this season, Newton comes into this game in great form. Newton has a great floor with his rushing ability and with tight end Greg Olsen looking fully fit to add to his existing passing options Newton has a high ceiling this week.
