Panthers | Cam Newton expects to play (Thu Aug 28, 12:47 AM) - Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) said Wednesday, Aug. 27, that he will be ready for the regular season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite fracturing his ribs last week. 'There's no doubt in my mind,' Newton said.

Our View: The ribs will be a long term concern as they are the sort of thing which can linger and cause issues down the road. However, we're happy to see that he will be ready to go Week 1. We have him as a borderline QB1 because of the issues at wide receiver, but his ability to run with the ball and overall skills make him a guy who will be able to overcome his surroundings and put fantasy points on the board.

Panthers | Cam Newton expect to be ready (Thu Aug 28, 12:47 AM) - Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs) said Wednesday, Aug. 27, that he will be ready for the regular season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite fracturing his ribs last week. 'There's no doubt in my mind,' Newton said.

Our View: Good news for Newton owners. There have been some concerns because of both the ribs and the lack of proven receivers. We still have him as a fringe QB1 as we believe he has the talent to overcome his surroundings. His ability to run the ball adds to his value as well.
