Ryan is not as sexy to own as Mahomes or Rodgers, but he certainly has gotten the job done over the last three seasons. In that time, no fantasy football player has more fantasy points, and with a reasonable 5.6% TD-rate, that pace appears to be sustainable. It further helps that he may have the best receiving core in football.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Let's be clear - Ryan isn't going to throw the ball 608 times again in 2019. That happened last year due to the insane amount of injuries to their defensive starters, as well as the injuries to both Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Still, Ryan has proved to be a reliable fantasy quarterback who may not provide the highest weekly upside, but he offers more stability than most. He's been a top-12 type performer in 27-of-48 games the last three years, so he's still not someone you should reach for.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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Ryan was 2nd among fantasy quarterbacks, thanks to 4,924 yards passing, 35 passing touchdowns and just 7 picks. He should continue to be great fantasy player in 2019.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.
