The scars are still there from the burns suffered by those that drafted Cam Newton in last year’s fantasy football draft. I am one of those people that proudly sport those scars. It was a rough year. Some weeks you got good Cam; other weeks you were not so lucky. Then at the end of the year he was unusable as he was gingerly used and then finally shut down by the Panthers. The Charlotte Observer has reported that Cam’s offseason has gone as planned. Cam progressed “from throwing to stationary targets one day, to shorter routes the next, and finally to intermediate routes 20-25 yards down the field.” This was the first action since week 15 of last season against the Saints. The reports are that he will be a full participant when camp opens next month. As a fantasy owner, you want to see the Cam Newton that hits DJ Moore or Christian McCaffery on short passes and lets them run. However, more importantly, you want the Cam Newton that escapes the pocket and makes defenses pay with his legs. We should wait and see how Cam Newton looks in camp, but it is a welcome sign that his is going to be a full participant at this point of his rehab. Stay tuned and check back for more.
