Cam Newton Fantasy Stats: Panthers QB A Dual-Threat Vs. Redskins

UPDATE -- Good news for fantasy football owners: Cam Newton scored a rushing touchdown on the Panthers opening drive of the first half.

***

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is making plays with his arm and his legs in the first half vs. the Redskins on Sunday. Newton's fantasy stats include 100+ yards passing and 34 rushing yards so far.

He does not have a touchdown (rushing or passing) yet, but he knocked on the doorstep in the first half, scrambling on 3rd-and-goal, but getting stopped short. But fantasy football owners can be glad that Newton has not turned the ball over yet either.

Newton was averaging 308 passing yards a game with 1,847 passing yards on the season and 7 touchdowns through his first six games of the 2011 NFL season. Newton also has 6 rushing touchdowns.

Newton was ranked by Yahoo! as the 3rd ranked quarterback heading into Week 7 taking on the Washington Redskins who rank 9th against the pass.
