According to sources, if Cam Newton is unable to play in Week 5 against the Broncos, Jarrett Stidham would likely get the start. (Jason La Canfora on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

The Patriots started Brian Hoyer in Newton’s place in Week 4, but he was replaced by Stidham in the second half. The Patriots and Broncos are slated to play Monday night at 5:00 PM, EDT, so you’ll likely want to have another option as a backup should there be any issues with the game being played. It’s still a question mark whether or not Newton will be cleared to play this week after testing positive for COVID-19 a week ago.
