Panthers QB Cam Newton (concussion) missed practice again Friday. HC Ron Rivera said he’ll know Newton’s status by the end of the week (Saturday?). Newton plays on Monday night, and the Charlotte Observer expects him to sit out, so owners should pick up Derek Anderson as a Plan B. Newton doesn’t typically miss starts, but he can’t tough his way through a head injury. As for Anderson, his last two starts were in 2014 and they were both against the Buccaneers. He completed 49 of 74 passes (66.2%) for 507 yards (for a 6.85 YPA), three touchdowns and zero interceptions. In a good matchup, QB streamers could do much worse.

Week 5 vs. Tampa Bay
Cam Newton isn’t a sure thing this week coming off a concussion, which might make Derek Anderson streamable in large leagues. If Newton can’t go, it’s probably better for fantasy owners to look to a different team all together for a QB, but Anderson might have value as a desperation start with upside. The Bucs have allowed the fifth most passing touchdowns this season and Anderson has been productive in the past when given the opportunity. Anderson might be a last resort for owners with the Panthers playing Monday night.
