News and Analysis
Newton completed 24-of-35 passes for 250 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-19 loss to the Steelers. He also lost a fumble and ran for seven yards on two carries.

Impact: Newton made some nice throws to pile up yardage, but he struggled on third downs, and the Panthers had just 42 yards on eight rushing attempts as a team. Newton was favoring his surgically-repaired left ankle in the fourth quarter, and was then replaced by Derek Anderson for the team's final meaningless drive, which concluded with a touchdown pass to rookie WR Kelvin Benjamin. While the 6-5 rookie is off to a fast start, the Carolina offensive line doesn't look good, nor do the team's other wide receivers. Newton should be able to get by with his arm by heavily relying on Benjamin and TE Greg Olsen, but it'll be a major concern for fantasy owners if the lingering ankle issue saps some of Newton's ability to run. The Panthers' QB has just six rushing attempts for 26 yards through two games.
