Cam Newton Fantasy: Another Good Start For Cam

Cam Newton has two touchdowns and 147 passing yards through the first half. On the ground he has yet to add to the rushing touchdown record he set last week. That could come as the Panthers are leading the Falcons. 

Rookie Cam Newton became the first Carolina Panthers quarterback in more than three years to be selected as an NFC Player of the Week last week. Newton passed for 204 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 54 yards and three scores in Sunday's 38-19 win over Tampa Bay. The No. 1 overall draft pick set an NFL record with 13 rushing touchdowns this season.

Newton continued his push towards Rookie of the Year honors by rushing for three scores and throwing a touchdown pass last week against the Buccaneers. The 2011 No. 1 overall pick set the NFL single-season record for the most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 13, surpassing the previous mark of 12 by Steve Grogan of the New England Patriots in 1976, and has rushed for 518 yards and a league-best 13 scores on 100 carries this season. Newton's 13 rushing touchdowns are the second most in franchise history for a season, five behind the team record of 18 set by DeAngelo Williams in 2008.
