The silver lining to Cam Newton's turbulent 2016 campaign: His beaten-up body won't require surgery.

The Panthers passer confirmed Sunday that the throwing shoulder he injured against the Chargers in Week 14 will simply require a little TLC this offseason.

"Rest," Newton said, per The Charlotte Observer. "Rest. A lot of rest."

Fantasy Impact:

One year removed from a torrid MVP campaign, Cam finished 2016 with the NFL's lowest completion percentage among qualified passers (52.9) and a career-low passer rating (75.8).

Panthers QB Cam Newton's mechanics under debate

ESPN - [Full Article]

The mechanics of quarterback Cam Newton were front and center on Monday as the Carolina Panthers entered their final week of their 2016 season.

Has the reigning NFL MVP gotten back into old habits of throwing off his back foot too much? Has the rest of his footwork gone askew?

In terms of mechanics, Coach Ron Rivera said there are “times you do see’’ a slippage.

“He is playing with the bad shoulder, trying to do the best he can with that,’’ he said. “Part of it, too, is having to get comfortable again with a [new] group of guys in front of him [because of injuries].

Fantasy Impact:

The story speculated it could be the pressure of losing in the Super Bowl and again in a Week 1 to the Broncos as well as a Week 3 setback to Minnesota that impacted his psyche. Protecting Cam Newton has been as big of an issue, but perhaps the shoulder is worse than the team is letting on.

Fantasy Impact:

For the Panthers, QB Cam Newton and WR Kelvin Benjamin are questionable. We reported earlier today that Newton is expected to play despite the tag. Benjamin practiced fully on Saturday which should be a good sign he'll be a go. For the Redskins, Jordan Reed is questionable. After playing last week, Reed should be OK to play on Monday night. Having Vernon Davis as a handcuff would be an ideal situation for fantasy owners, just in case.
