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.

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.

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.

29 yo. 68% 3300 yards and 24 TDs, but that's not why you're here. We know Cam is about the rushing yards. 488 and 4, second lowest of his career. Let's review the facts. Best completion % of his career by far. 2nd most passing TDs, LOWEST yards per completion, but so what? 2nd Most Yards passing per game in his career. This is what having guys like CMC and DJ Moore on the team can do, extend your career. Having said that, Newton was a tale of two halves. During the first eight games, 177-of-263 1,893 15 TDs for a passer rating of 100.8. Six wins two losses. MVP conversation. Next six - 143-of-208 1,502 yards 9 TDs 9 INTs for a passer rating of 85.9. All losses. Newton said he couldn't throw the football farther than 30 yards by the time he left the lineup -- second arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder. They say 'its minor's, but Now you see why they drafted Grier.
