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. 
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Now in New England, Newton will have a chance to be fantasy relevant once again. With a solid trio of WRs in Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu, and N'Keal Harry, Cam should always have somewhere to go with the ball. Add his rushing value and you have a potential top-12 QB. 
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.It was the best of times, it was the worst of times for Winston in 2019. Although he led the NFL in passing yards with 5,109, he also threw 30 interceptions and completed barely 60% of his passes. Now a backup to Drew Brees, Winston could become extremely interesting with an injury, though the presence of Taysom Hill might negate that potential. There's zero reason to draft Winston in redraft leagues, but his value in dynasty formats would obviously get an enormous boost if he takes over after Brees inevitably retires next season.
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. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Cam Newton and the Patriots is such a strange combination. A guy with flair, creativity and verve into a team which is calculated and often totally lacks personality. I'm not entirely sure how it'll work but I don't have the highest of hopes. His high-rushing days are over and there's not likely to be a lot of passing in this offence. I'd be avoiding Cam in most standard leagues.It looks like Jameis Winston will sit in 2020 behind Drew Brees. It's clearly the correct long term move and it does give him the possibility of some fantasy value if Brees goes down and Sean Payton doesn't actually use Taysom Hill.

Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 Signed a one year contract with the Saints, which means he'll need an injury to be relevant in fantasy this year.
