Cam Newton Fantasy Recap: Panthers QB Does It All Again

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton wrapped up fantasy football championship week with another dominant performance as his Panthers destroyed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Newton finished the game with only 171 passing yards, but he also threw three touchdowns and rushed for 65 yards and a touchdown. In most leagues, that amounts to approximately 31 points. Not too shabby.

Cam Newton has burst on the scene like nobody's business this season. The rookie QB had plenty of doubters heading into the season but he has shown he can make plays at the NFL level. His Panthers are 6-9, which is light years ahead of their 2-14 squad last season. And much of that is due to Cam Newton.

Most fantasy football leagues are wrapping up for the season and we can start to look ahead to the 2012 NFL season for fantasy football purposes. Cam Newton's draft placement will be one of the biggest discussions when we hit the summer. There will be leagues where someone jumps on Newton in the first round, and there might be leagues where he slides a round or two. It depends on how people trust him heading into what some view as the trap of a possible sophomore slump. He has proven doubters wrong, so we'll see if he can do it next year.
