The Carolina Panthers will get a much-needed boost in their lineup Sunday.
Quarterback Cam Newton (concussion) has been cleared to play against the New Orleans Saints, the team announced Saturday.
Newton missed Carolina's Week 5 loss to Tampa Bay after sustaining the concussion in a loss to the Atlanta Falcons. He was listed as questionable on Friday, when coach Ron Rivera said that "barring a setback," Cam would be good to go.

Week 6 at New Orleans
Cam Newton is set to return this week after missing Week 5 with a concussion. While the Panther offense has struggled a lot this year, they’ve faces some very difficult defenses with Cam under center, including both Denver and Minnesota. When healthy, Cam remains a dual-threat fantasy option who pads his stats with consistent production running the ball, especially in the red zone.
This week, Cam gets to face one of the worst defenses in the league. The Saints allow the fourth most passing yards to opposing teams per game this year, and Cam torched them for eight total touchdowns and 728 total yards over two games last season. Assuming Cam stays on track to start, he should be active as the top fantasy option this week in all league formats.
