Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
The NFL MVP candidate's streak of games with multiple total touchdowns scored stands at nine in a row. The Dallas Cowboys defense yielded the eighth-fewest fantasy points to the quarterback position during the last month, but the Cowboys faced the Seattle Seahawks, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Miami Dolphins during that stretch. Newton is a must-start for Thanksgiving Day.
Passsing: 212 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 39 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
After finishing as a top-six fantasy quarterback in each of his first three NFL campaigns, Newton plummeted to 17th in 2014 mainly because nagging injuries impacted his effectiveness all season. A now-healthy Newton is a shoo-in for a rebound. Despite his fantasy success, the 26-year-old Newton remains a sometimes-erratic thrower. The Panthers added rookie second-round selection Devin Funchess to a shallow receiver corps that features just the steady Greg Olsen and the on-the-rise Kelvin Benjamin. Funchess is a Benjamin "clone" and should push for immediate playing time. Newton's guaranteed rushing production usually lifts his fantasy scoring into the elite category. He has finished in the top three in rushing yards among quarterbacks four years in a row. Since Newton's down 2014 will scare off some fantasy owners, he could make a sneaky value pick.

Passing: 4200 Yards, 24 TD, 16 INT.
Rushing: 700 Yards, 12 TD.

Cam looking like he developed into the franchise QB that I've expected him to become. Defense looking good with Norman developing into one of the premier CBs in the league. We can still need some help with protecting cam and the relieving corps ...
Panthers might not pay Peppers big money?
At some point during the next 15 months, the Carolina Panthers must decide how much to pay defensive end Julius Peppers or whether to pay him at all. Before the 2007 season it seemed Peppers was a slam dunk to receive a contract extension that ...
Defense looks improved. Cam still can't throw accurately.
Luke is becoming an elite player. Cam is regressing. Hopefully Gettleman will eventually draft a real QB. He will likely replace Rivera at the end of the season and bring in his own coaching staff. I like this guy and think he will build us a great ...
