One thing many people fail to realize is that Cam Newton has been one of the most consistent fantasy QB's since entering the league, finishing as a top-4 QB in five of his seven seasons in the league. Newton managed to finish as the No. 2 QB last season, despite missing Greg Olsen for over half the season
As I mentioned in my last post, it's Newton's dual threat ability in the run game that gives him such a high floor every week. He set a career high in attempts (139) and yards (754) on the ground last season, rushing for 50+ yards nine different games. Keep in mind with Greg Olsen out for most of last season, Newton pretty much only had Devin Funchess and Christian McCaffery to work with in the pass game as his next best targets were guys like Ed Dickson and Russell Shepard .
With the return of Greg Olsen and addition of DJ Moore to go along with another year of Christian McCaffrey and Devin Funchess, Newton has all the weapons he needs to succeed. When you consider that he finished as the No. 2 QB last season and gets Greg Olsen and DJ Moore this coming season, Newton is an easy top-5, if not top-3 QB for me this year.
