With Stewart out, look for DeAngelo Williams to play a lot better in a featured role than he did against the Buccaneers in Week 1. Consider him a low-end RB2.

Charlott Observer - [Full Article]

As he assessed his performance in the postgame interview room, Carolina Panthers rookie quarterback Cam Newton said he was "in the business of moving the chains."

Business was bad for Newton and the rest of the Panthers' offense Friday.

Maybe not a 400-point-drop-on-Wall Street bad, but bad enough to give pause to anyone who thought Newton was a shoo-in to win the starting quarterback job.

In his first exhibition start, Newton threw behind and below receivers, often failed to set his feet and looked confused at times in the Panthers' 20-10 loss to Miami.

The No. 1 overall pick completed 7 of 14 passes for 66 yards. He only had one completion to a wide receiver - a 2-yard gain to Armanti Edwards on third-and-9 late in the second quarter.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera would prefer to name a Week 1 starting quarterback before next week's game at Cincinnati, and did not indicate a leader in the competition between Newton and Jimmy Clausen.

The quarterback order remained the same for the Panthers on Monday night, with Jimmy Clausen getting the first reps in team drills, followed by Cam Newton.

It figures to stay that way the rest of this week.

Carolina coach Ron Rivera said again he expects to name his starting quarterback next week before the Panthers' third preseason game at Cincinnati on Aug. 25.

Rivera said the game video of Saturday's 20-10 win over the Giants didn't change his assessment of what he saw from the top two quarterbacks. Both did some good things; both made some mistakes, and there were some mistakes from their offensive teammates that caused the quarterbacks to misfire at times.

Uneven Start for Carolina Rookie QB Cam Newton

Associated Press - [Full Article]

Carolina Panthers rookie quarterback Cam Newton led a pair of field-goal drives in his NFL debut, and Jimmy Clausen threw a touchdown pass to Greg Olsen to help Carolina beat the New York Giants.

Newton, the Heisman Trophy winner from Auburn and top overall pick in the NFL draft, struggled with his accuracy and twice failed to get the Panthers into the end zone on promising first-half drives.

Newton completed 8 of 19 throws for 134 yards, including a pair of completions of at least 30 yards. He entered the game to loud cheers on Carolina’s first drive of the second quarter and left early in the fourth.

It was a forgettable night for New York’s offense, which never reached the end zone. Lawrence Tynes missed two field goals and had another blocked in the fourth.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning didn’t lead a scoring drive in his five series, completing 4 of 9 passes for just 36 yards. He also slightly overthrew Hakeem Nicks on what could’ve been a big third-down gain on his first possession, forcing Tynes to try a 56-yard field goal.

Fantasy Impact:

Nothing too surprising in this one. Carolina has to be happy that new acquisition Olsen found the end zone. Olsen will have a hard time being a TE1 in Carolina, but he's worthy of a roster spot if you have the space to carry two tight ends.

Carolina is listing Jimmy Clausen as the starter, but the real hope throughout the organization is Cam Newton will be the guy on opening day.

He’s handled everything well throughout camp. Newton doesn’t have to light it up in the preseason. With what should be a good offense around him, he just needs to go out and show he can run the huddle and get the ball where it needs to go. If he can do that, Newton’s going to step over Clausen on the depth chart.

The Carolina Panthers released their first depth chart of the preseason and Jimmy Clausen is listed as the first-team quarterback ahead of Cam Newton.

Panthers Coach Ron Rivera said the team hasn't chosen a starting quarterback. He said there's a possibility Cam Newton and Jimmy Clausen will both get a chance to start in the preseason. Rivera said that will make for a fairer evaluation of the quarterbacks since both will face first-team defenses.

Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen is still running with the first-team offense in team drills. Cam Newton is with the twos.

There were some spot-on frozen ropes and a few balls that sailed beyond receivers or tailed behind them. There was a botched handoff in which the ball ended up on the ground and there was the moment of brilliance we saw so much of in college when the quarterback tucked the ball and ran for roughly a 20-yard gain.

We're talking about rookie Cam Newton’s first padded practice as a member of the Carolina Panthers. It was a mixed bag, filled with flashes of potential and the usual rookie mistakes. Nobody’s ready to declare Newton the starter over Jimmy Clausen. In fact, the Panthers added another competitor when free-agent Derek Anderson walked out to the practice field to watch after passing his physical and signing his contract.

“It’s so early that it’s hard to get a true assessment of where we’re at,’’ offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski said. “We’ve only been out here a few days.’’

It’s likely the Panthers will go through virtually all of training camp and their preseason games before settling on a starter. But the early verdict is that Newton is doing pretty much what you’d expect.

Fantasy Impact:

Newton should be available very late in your draft and is really only a worthy pick if you have a deep roster or can carry a third QB. With no OTAs, odds are against him being the starter right out of the gate, but he should eventually take over the job at some point this year. Carolina brought back DeAngelo Williams at RB, so this is a team committed to the run for now.

Quarterback Derek Anderson signs with Carolina Panthers, according to source.

Fantasy Impact:

Don't expect Anderson to have much value this year. He's most likely just there as a veteran presence to push second-year-player Jimmy Clausen and this year's top pick, Cam Newton.
