15. Cam Newton, Panthers
Newton would have been a top-10 fantasy quarterback if he had played the last two games of the season. In theory, he’s still capable of being that caliber of player, but the uncertainty surround the health of his shoulder makes him a risky pick unless he drops to the later rounds. Carolina’s receiving corps also has some questions outside the aging Greg Olsen and running back Christian McCaffrey.
The good news is that Newton’s shoulder trouble doesn’t take away his abilities as a runner, which is a big reason why he has a lot of fantasy upside. But he still needs to be able to throw the ball, so fantasy owners should proceed with caution if they want to draft Newton.
Top Target: Greg Olsen
Secondary Target: D.J. Moore
