Fantasy Football Advice
Cam Newton is a great pick if you want to take a QB early. I typically wait on QB, but Newton is one that I'm OK spending a mid round pick on. Newton had his best season by a mile in terms of completion percentage last season, beating his next best season by over 6%. The reasoning for that makes perfect sense too. The Panthers have built their offense to thrive on the short passing game. McCaffrey is one of the best receiving backs in the NFL, and the combination of Samuels and Moore gives Newton two receivers that can make plays after the catch. This allowed Newton to finish with the second most yards per game in his career...even with the 32nd deepest ADOT. What you also get with Newton is the rushing floor. He's going to be around 500-600 rushing yards with 5-6 rushing TD's. That's a really secure floor, and also gives him massive weekly upside. I expect Newton to have one of the best seasons of his career, and yet this is the latest we've been able to draft him since 2015.I think people forget how good Carson Wentz is. He was the clear cut MVP in 2017 before tearing his ACL, then he posted a 21/7 TD/INT rate in his 11 healthy games last season, finishing with over 300 yards or multiple scores in 8/11 weeks. He opens this season fully healthy, and is currently 4th in MVP odds. The offense also upgraded in the offseason. Not only has Alshon/Ertz/Agholor all returned...but Goedert is now set to take a step forward in his second season, the traded for DeSean Jackson (who's still an elite field stretcher), they signed Jordan Howard in FA, and they drafted both Miles Sanders and J.J. Arcega Whiteside. These are elite offensive weapons, and the Eagles have PFF's top rated offensive line. I expect the Eagles to make another Super Bowl run...and I expect Carson Wentz to be the driving force behind it.

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 be healthier this year and rebound to QB1 status in 2019, but he needs to be healthy if he is going to be a QB1.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.

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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.
