Panthers' Cam Newton: Struggles as Panthers have 14-game home win streak snapped
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Newton threw for 262 yards and three interceptions while completing 21 of 35 passes, and added 26 yards and a rushing touchdown on seven carries in Sunday's 22-10 loss to the Vikings.

Newton and the Panthers had a 14-game home winning streak snapped in this surprise defeat, and the star signal caller's poor play was the primary reason why. He salvaged his fantasy performance with a three-yard rushing touchdown, but even his rushing output was meager by the hulking quarterback's standards. Newton's strong start to the season suggests this performance was just an outlier, so expect a better effort next week in Atlanta.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Lights up the scoreboard Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Newton racked up 353 yards and four touchdowns through the air, completing 24 of 40 passing attempts during Sunday's win over the 49ers. He also carried the ball six times for 37 yards, but turned the ball over twice.

Newton put up quite a performance as he led the Panthers on their way to 46 points against a struggling 49ers defense. His day was highlighted by a 78-yard strike to tight end Greg Olsen during the second quarter, and he also hit No. 1 receiver Kelvin Benjamin seven times for 108 yards and two touchdowns. Newton has a bit more of a challenge next week against the Vikings, but he'll remain one of the top fantasy options at quarterback regardless.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Carries to be monitored
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Newton's amount of carries will be monitored going forward, as offensive coordinator Mike Shula feels more comfortable with him running seven or eight times per game, ESPN's David Newton reports.

Newton was credited with 11 rushes during last week's season-opening defeat to the Broncos, when he also took a number of wicked hits from his plays as a passer. Although Newton has proven pretty durable despite his frequent runs in the past, Shula rightfully wants to manage the amount of times he's asked to carry the ball. While Newton's fantasy owners will find this a reasonable precaution to ensure he's healthy for the long haul, they'll still at least hope his number continues to be called near the goal line going forward.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Not in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Newton has passed four concussion tests and thus is not subject to further concussion protocol following Thursday night's season opener against the Broncos, The Associated Press reports.

Newton endured a number of gruesome hits to the helmet during Thursday's loss to the Broncos, but apparently avoided suffering a concussion. With multiple tests confirming that notion, Newton should be able to participate normally in practice this coming week. While that's certainly reassuring news for Newton's fantasy owners, they'll also surely hope he doesn't again experience anything resembling the pounding he absorbed Thursday in the Panthers' upcoming games.

Panthers' Cam Newton: Passes, runs for scores in Opening Night loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Newton completed 18 of 33 passes for 194 yards with a touchdown and interception in Thursday's 21-20 loss to the Broncos. He also tallied 54 yards and a touchdown on 11 rushes.

The 2015 NFL MVP got his 2016 campaign off to a solid start, particularly on the ground, where he once again displayed why he is the league's most effective dual threat at the position. However, Newton was sacked three times and hit hard throughout the night, while also seeing Chris Harris intercept one of his passes early in the fourth quarter, a pick that led to a go-ahead scoring drive by the Broncos. He also took a helmet-to-helmet blow from Broncos safety Darien Stewart in the final drive, but managed to remain in the game. Despite some struggles against one of the NFL's stoutest defenses, Newton encouragingly connected with Kelvin Benjamin, who missed all of last season, for six receptions, the last of which was a clutch 21-yard completion to the Broncos' 32-yard line that set up the potential game-winning field goal. The kick ultimately went wide left, sending Newton and the Panthers into a Week 2 matchup versus the 49ers that should be more conducive to offensive success.
