The Fake Football
It's difficult for Newton to be a bad fantasy quarterback, even without a ton of receiving options, because of his ability to run. He makes for a safe pick after the top three options this season.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
I'm as troubled by his lack of weapons as anyone, but Newton's work as a rusher gives a very high weekly floor. If the o-line holds, its possible that the current receiving corps is as productive as a Smith/Ginn/LaFell trio anyhow.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The "downgrade" in Newton's supporting cast is insanely overhyped. He's still a top-5 threat.
Vick should end up starting in NY, but that doesn't mean you should trust him. He's still on the wrong side of 30 and can never stay healthy.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Newton was the third ranked fantasy quarterback in 2013, despite not having any dominant skill position players to help his numbers. The only saving grace for Newton is the Panthers added WR Kelvin Benjamin in the draft and he has been as good as advertised in training camp. If Benjamin can produce and stay healthy, the Panthers may have enough weapons to move the ball through the air.

Cam is a solid QB, but from Fantasy perspectives he is not quite top 5.

QB1 option if/when starting

Back and ankle injuries could lead to less rushing attempts. O-line is shaky at best.

***Newton has suffered a hairline fracture to the ribs and is questionable for Week 1 of the NFL season.***If I were needing to pick a quarterback to start up an actual NFL franchise, Newton would be a top-5 choice of mine, possibly even top-3. Unfortunately this is not the NFL, this is fantasy football. His overall offensive statistics have gone down each and every year since he has been a rookie, but you can't blame it only on injuries; the surrounding offensive cast is sub-par. Once again there has been a major turnover with the receiving group and to make matters worse, this new group actually is inferior to last years laughing stock of a squad. If he were on the Detroit Lions Newton would be a sure-fire top-5 pick. On the Panthers he is where he is, a QB2 with the potential for a very nice week from time-to-time.
Vick is Geno Smith's backup. There is no real quarterback competition for the New York Jets and even if there was the odds of Vick staying healthy all year is practically nil at this point. If Smith gets hurt, Vick's value will jump into the QB2 tier, but while remaining on the sideline he is not worthy of anything more than waiver wire fodder.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
The Carolina Panthers have one of the worst, if not worst, Offensive Lines in the NFL this season. Coupled with this, the Panthers have a completely new WR Corps in Rookie WR1 Kelvin Benjamin, Free Agent WR2 Jerricho Cotchery and Free Agent WR3 Tiquan Underwood. To top things off, Newton has had very little work with his brand new WRs due to recovery from ankle surgery. The ankle surgery was to tighten the ligaments in his foot that has been an issue since his days at Auburn, which is very concerning for the 2014 season.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
His subpar WR corps is less of a concern than his deteriorating O-line.
Turnover machine could provide short-term value if Geno stumbles.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
On my 2014 all bust team.

The rib injury could cut back on him running the ball at the goal line.
 
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Offseason ankle surgery, cracked ribs and no-name cast of WRs have his stock plummeting, and I'd be more than happy to take advantage of the discount
