Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
It will be interesting to see what he can do in New England. If healthy, he could be a top-10 QB. 
Mike Tagliere

There are many who'll be jumping to draft Newton as a QB1 like it's still 2017, but you shouldn't be one of them. Newton will be coming off shoulder surgery, which had countless teams passing on him. That's a concern, yes, but it's not the biggest concern. He's now 31 years old. Do you know how many quarterbacks have rushed for more than 500 yards after turning 31? Three. Now as how many of those quarterbacks had more than four rushing touchdowns... None. Newton was once a dominating force who required coordinators to adjust gameplans, but I just don't think he's that guy anymore. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Newton missed most of last season with a foot injury, but wasn't very good in the two games he did play, completing just 56.2% of his passes. He has always made up for any deficiencies in his passing game with his legs, but at 31 years old and coming off two injury-plagued years, it's fair to wonder how much he'll contribute on the ground. Nevertheless, despite the less than stellar options at receiver, Newton will almost certainly start at quarterback for the Patriots and they'll surely figure out how best to use his talents. That makes Newton a mid-tier QB2 with upside, despite all the uncertainty. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Cam Newton has now been signed by the New England Patriots and will immediately step in as the starter. While there may be some attempt by the Patriots to claim that this is an "open competition" this offseason, a healthy Cam Newton is immensely more talented than Jarrett Stidham. Newton will be used heavily in the running game in this offense, which is fantasy gold. Additionally, the Patriots only signed Newton to a one-year deal, which means that they can used him heavily and not worry about long-term consequences. I'm expecting Newton to carry the ball over 115 times this season, which immediately puts him in the Top-10 fantasy QB conversation.Justin Herbert may not see the field much in the first few weeks of the 2020 season, but he's going to take over that job from Tyrod Taylor at some point. Herbert's tape is inconsistent, but he now has the draft capital to assure us that he's the long-term answer in Los Angeles. If you're willing to wait, and gamble on his upside, Herbert's a fine selection for a QB-needy Dynasty roster.
