Well, it’s official: The Cam Newton era is over in Carolina.

Liz Loza and Matt Harmon discuss the Panthers releasing the former MVP and more a bit later on the latest fantasy football podcast.

First, two big-name running backs switched teams. The Los Angeles Rams released Todd Gurley, and he was subsequently signed to a one-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons. (3:55)

The Denver Broncos signed free agent Melvin Gordon, adding him to a backfield that already contained Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman. Our experts discuss what the moves mean for fantasy. (10:15)

Newton reportedly had a successful physical in Atlanta that proved his health, so, with that knowledge in tow, where do we think he’ll land? (18:30)

Out of the backfield and switching to out wide, Robby Anderson — signed with the Carolina Panthers (28:00) — and Breshad Perriman — replaced Anderson on the New York Jets — are off the free-agent board. (37:20)

Another wide receiver, Devin Funchess, signed with the Green Bay Packers, giving Aaron Rodgers a new ... weapon? (43:20)

Liz and Matt breakdown all those moves — and discuss sweatpants, lasagna and kumquats on another quarantine edition of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Podcast.
