Cam Newton Fantasy: Panthers QB Turns In Another Solid Effort

Cam Newton has found adjusting to the NFL remarkably easy, it seems, as he posted another solid performance on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. The Carolina Panthers quarterback tossed three touchdowns with 290 yards passing, although it wasn't enough in a 24-21 loss.

Newton is the prohibitive favorite to take home rookie-of-the-year honors at season's end. He's the biggest reason Panthers fans have to tune in every week despite another ugly start, with over 2,100 yards passing through seven games.

It's Newton's running ability that makes him an especially valuable fantasy commodity, however. He has had at least one rushing touchdowns in all but one game this year, which in standard scoring leagues should be worth a couple more points than the passing variety. Newton was ranked No. 2 in Yahoo! Sports' fantasy quarterback rankings this week, going up against a soft Minnesota secondary.
