Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has a fantastic opportunity against the Cincinnati Bengals this week. Building on from the previous week against the Atlantic Falcons where Newton put together an impressive 335 yards and three touchdowns in the air added to his 42 yards on the ground. The Bengals haven't looked like an elite level defense so far this year, and are clearly a worse unit than the Falcons. Newton may be without tight end Greg Olsen, but the duo of running back Christian McCaffrey and wide receiver Devin Funchess stepped up against the Falcons and should be able to give him the weapons he needs this week to be successful.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton bounced back from a hit from rookie safety Damontae Kazee in the second quarter to complete a productive game for fantasy purposes. Newton ended the game with 335 passing yards with 32 completions on 45 attempts, three touchdowns, and a single interception, while also giving his normal production on the ground with 42 yards rushing. Newton's week 3 matchup at home against the Cincinnati Bengals should be a productive one for the signal caller.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton continues his tough opening schedule on the road against the Atlanta Falcons. In Newton's opening game he was held to just 161 yards against the Dallas Cowboys, with the majority of his fantasy production coming from his 58 yards and touchdown on the ground. The Falcons defense may be missing starting safety Keanu Neal, but still has a unit that can limit Newton's productivity on the ground and force him to pass. With Newton missing one of his favorite targets in Greg Olsen expect a low scoring week from the signal caller.
