Newton will need to use his legs more than last season, which should keep his floor pretty high. I'm not expecting huge passing numbers though.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

Houston on the road is a problem, while Smith in general just isn't a guy to tie your week to on a regular basis.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

A road date with the Jags isn't what it was two years ago, while Cam no longer has Kelvin.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

 
Newton will be hurt by the loss of WR Kelvin Benjamin, but the Jaguars were just 17th against fantasy quarterbacks last year and he should be able to provide QB2 value.
