Cam Newton News
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) has been using a new throwing motion so far during minicamp and offseason drills, as the team tries to cut down on the wear and tear on his surgically-repaired throwing shoulder. "Making him a little more compact in his upper body. A little more closed off, just so he's not as open throwing the ball. And just to make him as efficient as possible and putting the least amount of stress possible," quarterbacks coach Scott Cooper said. Newton can be a threat with his arm and his feet when he is healthy. If he can avoid shoulder issues again in 2019, he can still be a low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder), who had arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder for the second straight offseason, is scheduled to throw during all quarterback drills at minicamp next week. It's unclear when he'll start taking part in team drills, though. Cams confidence level is up because hes pain-free, head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion said. He feels good about where he is right now but were not done. This is one more step in our process as we get him ready for 2019. It's understandable if fantasy owners shy away from making Newton a high-end QB1 pick in 2019 drafts, but he could easily return high-end QB1 value this year if his shoulder gives him no further issues.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) has started throwing a regulation-sized football, according to a league source. Newton is coming off his second straight offseason shoulder surgery and hadn't thrown overhand during public workouts so far this spring. The Panthers won't rush the start quarterback along through the process, but he's expected to participate in workouts by training camp this summer. Newton, 30, was really limited in what he could do down the field late last year and sat out the final two meaningless games of the season. He finished with 3,395 yards passing, 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 14 games while also running 101 times for 488 yards and four scores. When he's healthy and also using his legs to rack up points, Newton is a no-doubt QB1, but the risk is greater than ever.
Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said that there is still no timetable on quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder), but he is "very optimistic" that Newton will be ready by training camp. Newton didn't throw at organized team activities on Wednesday as the team continues to play it safe with him after he had offseason surgery for the second straight year. Shoulder issues will make Newton less desirable in fantasy in 2019, but he still has high upside as a QB1 if he can finally put his arm issues behind him once and for all.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) said his rehab from offseason shoulder surgery is going "unbelievable" and he hopes to throw before training camp. "I'm feeling great now," Newton told ESPN. "I feel like I do have full strength right now. But me telling the doctor, that is different than, you know, whatever the clearance process may be." Newton was shut down for the final two games in 2018, and scar tissue that remained from his 2017 surgery was removed from his rotator cuff. There is no timetable for when he'll be cleared, but he's confident he won't have any setbacks like he did last year. Newton is on a vegan diet in hopes of getting to the 237-pound range, which would be the lowest of his career. He also hired a personal trainer that works with him daily. While Newton's fantasy value might fall a tad based on his shoulder concerns, he can still make plays with his legs and should remain a QB1 heading into the 2019 season.
