Cam Newton injury update: Fantasy value not expected to be limited vs. Chiefs

Rob Carr

Cam Newton is expected to suit up Sunday to lead the Panthers against the Chiefs. He was a full participant in practice throughout the week despite an injured right wrist. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cam Newton is expected to suit up for the Carolina Panthers against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Newton suffered a right wrist injury in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but was able to practice fully throughout the past week.

Newton is coming off his best fantasy performance of the season. He had had four total touchdowns-two passing, two rushing--and 358 total yards of offense in a win over the Eagles on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: Coming off a monster performance, fantasy owners would be crazy not to consider starting Newton against an awful Chiefs secondary. The Chiefs have given up 22 passing touchdowns on the season, countering with just seven interceptions. They have consistently been a boon matchup for fantasy quarterbacks, making Newton arguably one of the league's most promising fantasy prospects this week.
