Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

After trying to limit Newton's rushing in 2016, Carolina seems to have finally come to grips with the fact that trying to turn him into a pocket passer simply doesn't translate to success. Instead, his ability to keep defenses honest with his legs is a crucial component to his success in the passing game. Newton rebounded off 2016's dismal 52.9% completion rate to 59.1%, which is much more in line with what we've come to expect throughout his career. He also posted career highs in rushing attempts (139) and rushing yards (754) with 6 rushing scores in 2017. All of this suggests that while the Panthers know there are risks in letting their franchise quarterback take an above average number of hits from NFL defenders each week, they also know that without a mobile Cam the Carolina offenses simply isn't as effective, in large part because Newton himself becomes less effective as a passer. Under contract through 2020, we should expect similar efforts to 2017 going forward as long as the 29 year old signal caller can stay healthy.

2018 Season Outlook

Newton's rushing ability almost guarantees top ten fantasy quarterback numbers over a 16 games season, and the addition of rookie wide receiver D.J. Moore and a healthy Greg Olsen will only help. But Newton's real value comes from his upside. We may never see him match the 35 passing and 10 rushing scores of 2015 again, but the fact that we know he's capable of posting those types of numbers over the course of a season gives him arguably the highest ceiling at the position.
