Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had a strong outing in Week 2 of the preseason. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Carolina Panthers start quarterback Cam Newton continues to prove he is the real deal. On Friday night against the Miami Dolphins, Newton handled his business like a seasoned pro, going 8 for 11, for 119 yards and a touchdown. Newton completed almost all of his passes and better yet, did not turn the ball over, leading his team on a scoring drive.

Analysis: The 2011 first overall pick seems to be evolving day-in and day-out, becoming a leader and productive player in this league. Cam Newton is a fantasy stud. After being a sleeper/late round selection in 2011, Newton might not make it past the first round in most fantasy league's. With the ability to make plays with his arm and his legs, Newton collects points from all over. If positioned to pick in the late first round, Newton may be a solid selection with your team's first pick.
