Cam Newton regains fantasy magic in upset win

Grant Halverson

Cam Newton threw for three touchdowns and ran in another one as the Panthers upset the Falcons.

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.
