Cam is expected back for Week 1, but that may be a mistake, as shoulders more than often require babying so they don't flare back up. Whichever way they take this, Newton will either miss a few weeks to open the season or struggle in the passing game like he did in 2018. Regardless, his legs, and especially in the end zone, make him a lock to be a top 10 performer while he is on the field, and perhaps as high as top 3 as we've seen from Cam numerous times.In the 11 weeks Wentz was healthy last season, he was the QB13 thanks to a greatly diminished TD-rate (as expected). With that said, he was even more efficient than his 2017 MVP campaign so there is more upside. The concern, of course, is that Wentz is still not healed from the back injury that kept him out at the end of the season so be sure to monitor that as your fantasy draft draws near.

As of now, we have to wonder if Cam Newton will be ready for the start of the season, as he continues to rehab from his offseason shoulder surgery. He started throwing in May, but we heard similar things about Andrew Luck a few years ago. No matter which way you slice it, Newton comes with plenty of risk. Christian McCaffrey played extremely well around the goal-line, which takes away the thing that put Newton over the top as a fantasy quarterback - his rushing totals. Unless Newton can turn into a more polished passer, his days as a top-five quarterback are likely over.If you were to put Wentz's numbers up against the career of this decade's fantasy starters, his closest comparison would be Tony Romo. During his career, Romo posted QB1-type numbers 45 percent of the time, which is precisely what Wentz has done in his three years. Wentz hasn't offered the upside that some of the quarterbacks above him in the rankings, but he should provide high-end QB2-type production at year's end.

Newton was 12th among fantasy quarterbacks, despite playing with a bum shoulder that prevented him from throwing the ball further than 30-yards downfield. He should rebound to QB1 status in 2019.Wentz had some of the same consistency issues that Texans QB Deshaun Watson had returning from ACL surgery and Wentz also dealt with other injuries, causing him to miss 5 games. I think he will be a much different QB in 2019 with these injury issues hopefully behind him.
