The Lions accomodated Matthew Stafford's request and traded him to LA netting Jared Goff and some draft picks in return for a horrendous contract. Goff has no WRs and a coach who wants to smash skulls. Not the recipe for fantasy greatness for your QB. AvoidCam hurt his hand in OTA's. Hopefully he's okay. Even if he is 1st round pick, QB Mac Jones, is breathing down his neck. The book on Jones is he's not the most gifted QB athletically, but he's very smart and will pick up the offense much quicker than the average rookie QB. If Cam can hold him off, for awhile at least, he has some new weapons in Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, Nelson Agholor, and Kendrick Bourne. And while they're talented, that's still a lot of moving pieces. I'd rather have more continuity. Avoid

 One of my favorite streaming options at the QB position this year is Newton in New England. Did you know that before Newton contracted COVID-19 in Week 4 last year he was the QB7 in all of fantasy football? This was despite being put in a brand new system late in the off-season - which wasn't really a true off-season - and without any true receiving weapons. Jakobi Meyers was Newton's top receiving option in 2020 and that's not going to lead to productivity from any QB! It certainly was not pretty from Newton, but he still brought consistent fantasy viability with his rushing prowess. Newton saw 25 (!) Red Zone carries last year and scored 12 rushing touchdowns and this was all while battling the after effects of COVID. With a full off-season in this system, plus the revamped receiving corps around him, Newton's my favorite buy at the QB position based on his price tag. There's a possibility that he doesn't start the entire season, but when you're streaming the QB position, you don't need that guarantee. The upside is too much to pass up on with Newton and I'll be drafting him everywhere that I can this season.

If you were thinking the hate went too far with Goff and that he might be a decent streamer/platoon option, think again. His start to the season is a nightmare and it really doesn't get any better as it goes on. The first seven weeks include the 49ers, Packers, Ravens, Bears, Vikings, and Rams. If you want to find a great matchup, you have to wait all the way until Week 16. The Lions offense isn't one you should aggressively attack in fantasy drafts.It seems we won't know who the Patriots starting quarterback will be until weeks before the start of the season, but the expectation should be that Newton starts Week 1. He wasn't good in 2020 - there's no denying that, though it certainly didn't help that his top receiver was out for most of the season, and they were weak behind him on the depth chart. The Patriots beefed up their wide receiver/tight end depth chart by signing quite a few players, including Jonnu Smith, Nelson Agholor, and Hunter Henry. Knowing that Newton still flashed 500-plus yard rushing upside, he can be considered a solid streamer as long as he has the job, but if he plays like he did last year, his starting job will be short lived.
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
The Lions may not have any WRs, but they may have one of the best offensive lines in football. That factor alone could catapult Jared Goff into some fantasy relevance this season.

 *UPDATE* Upside remains high & was endorsed as starter, but Mac Jones unlikely to ride pine all year. Weapons upgrade + full offseason could mean return to, or improvement on, early-season Cam that was Top-10.
