Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton had a banner game in Week 14. Against the Atlanta Falcons, Newton completed 23-of-35 passes for 287 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also added 116 rushing yards on nine attempts, including a brilliant 72-yard TD run off a read option play.
The Panthers knocked off the Falcons 30-20 to hand them only their second loss of the season.
Fantasy Impact: Newton was nearly flawless in this game, showing the dual-threat ability that reminded everyone why he is considered such a special talent. It's been a disappointing year for the second-year QB, but he's playing strong down the stretch.
Newton remains a decent QB2 play throughout the fantasy playoffs. The Panthers take on the Chargers in Week 15.
