Cam Newton completed 17-of-28 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown. He also had one carry for 2 yards. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: In the dress rehearsal preseason game, Newton showed that he can still put fantasy points despite losing Kelvin Benjamin. Unfortunately, his receivers had 5 drops last night, (Cory Brown with four of those), but that's why it's preseason. Newton almost had a second touchdown, but the aforementioned Brown dropped it. He will likely play one short series next week at Pittsburgh, before shutting it down until the regular season.

Loss of KB is huge. I still like him due to his dual threat nature and he's much healthier now than a year ago.

The loss of Kelvin Benjamin makes me want to react quick and drop Cam but then again, he could rely on his running a tad bit more.

With Kelvin Benjamin out for the year, he's going to have to get 800 yards and 8 touchdowns on the ground to be a fantasy starter

Panthers are hoping Devin Funchess can be a No. 1 receiver, but that's a lot to ask of a rookie.

Newton was never right last year, he had a rib injury early in the season and a back injury due to a car accident at the end of the season. He's going to need to be a runner to be an elite fantasy option, WR Kelvin Benjamin was 6th in the NFL with 144 targets, but has been lost for the year with an ACL tear. This receiving core goes back to being an underwhelming group.

Cam doesn't run as much as he used to and he still has a tough time with missing receivers high .Luckily the Panthers know this and have drafted Kelvin Bejamin 6'5" in 14 and Devon Funchess 6'4" in 15 to go along with the 6'5" Greg Olsen. I think he'll throw a little more this season, but the reduced running takes him down here.

He didn't even throw 20 TDs last year so it's so hard to recommend Cam, but the receiving core is getting better and he does like to run the ball into the end-zone. He actually is a riskier top 10 QB, but 2015 could be the year he shows us his upside and moves up the rankings. He will also be missing Kelvin Benjamin this year.

Newton has not developed as a passer like we'd like, but he continues to run effectively and buoy his stats. The addition of Devin Funchess may help, but rushing yards and touchdowns are what we will be banking on for his fantasy numbers.

Let’s face it: most of us claim that we’d rather drink bleach through a straw, made entirely out of thorns, than watch preseason football (that means absolutely nothing) or pay attention to training camps. But we secretly are thanking the NFL gods that our eyes get to feast upon clashing helmets once again. One thing... Read More
