At Fan Fest today, Cam Newton was a full-go. However, Cam admitted that his ankle is not yet 100%. This was evident when he came up limping after an incomplete pass to Cotchery. (Source: (Source: Joe Person on Twitter))

Fantasy Impact: The ankle was looked at, and it turned out to be nothing serious. It was good to see Cam fully participating, and we will be keeping a close eye on his day-to-day health.

BREAKING: Dave Gettleman says Cam Newton has been cleared to practice in training camp. (Source: Steve Reed on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Offseason ankle surgery won't affect Newton's training camp participation. Concerns over drafting him should be less worrisome. His arm and legs make him a dual threat for yards and touchdowns and that is why he has finished each season among the top 5 QB’s in fantasy scoring since entering the league.

Cam Newton is expected to be limited for the first week or two per Bill Voth. He estimates nothing major, just sitting some things out more than he usually would. He does continue to say that if he’s going to be limited, that will mean he’s not yet 100 percent. (Source: Bill Voth – Black and Blue Review)

Fantasy Impact: Cam Newton is going to be eager to work with his new group of receivers in pads and against a live defense. But if the training staff decides to limit him, that timing with them will be further delayed. If that happens early woes could be related to both timing and his ankle. The most important thing for fantasy owners and the Panthers is that Cam is healthy and full go Week 1. Timing and rhythm may suffer, but until he misses pre-season game action there is not much to worry about at this time.

Not expected to ease up on rush attempts, which is great considering his hideous receivers.

The "downgrade" in Newton's supporting cast is insanely overhyped. He's still a top-5 threat.
Fantasy Team Advice | Jul 30th
This could be a tough year for Cam Newton and his fantasy owners. In standard leagues, his rushing TD's usually made him a top 6 option, however, with a healthy DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart (not to mention Mike Tolbert the vulture extraordinaire), it would be unrealistic to expect an increase in rush TD production in 2014. Couple that with a WR1/WR2 of Kelvin Benjamin and Jerricho Cotchery.. and you get a down forecast for Cam. Don't reach as early for him as you would have in years past.
Fantasy Sports LR | Jul 30th
I'm as troubled by his lack of weapons as anyone, but Newton's work as a rusher gives a very high weekly floor. If the o-line holds, its possible that the current receiving corps is as productive as a Smith/Ginn/LaFell trio anyhow.

Christopher Harris explains why Cam Newton is a safer fantasy prospect this people than some people might believe.

If I were needing to pick a quarterback to start up an actual NFL franchise, Newton would be a top-5 choice of mine, possibly even top-3. Unfortunately this is not the NFL, this is fantasy football. His overall offensive statistics have gone down each and every year since he has been a rookie, but you can't blame it only on injuries; the surrounding offensive cast is sub-par. Once again there has been a major turnover with the receiving group and to make matters worse, this new group actually is inferior to last years laughing stock of a squad. If he were on the Detroit Lions Newton would be a sure-fire top-5 pick. On the Panthers he is where he is, a QB2 with the potential for a very nice week from time-to-time.

Cam is a solid QB, but from Fantasy perspectives he is not quite top 5.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Jul 15th
Newton was the third ranked fantasy quarterback in 2013, despite not having any dominant skill position players to help his numbers. He has even less targets this off-season, the worst receiving core in the NFL could keep him from reaching his full fantasy potential. At least the Panthers added WR Kelvin Benjamin in the draft, but it is still a deficient receiving core.
