Cam Newton's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

While Baker Mayfield has the superior weapons, superior mechanics and a lot of hype our projection says Cam Newton will produce more fantasy points. Mayfield is a spot ahead of Newton in our Fantasy Expert Consensus ranking, but Newton is 2 spots ahead in projection based rank. Cam should approach 4000 yards with a 25 to 16 TD/INT ratio. Even with a reduced running role he is projected for 600+ rushing yards and 4 rushing TDs.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Cam Newton to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 358 projected fantasy points puts him at #5 behind Matt Ryan and ahead of Jared Goff. He has averaged 23.33 fantasy points in his past 14 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 22.4 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 97%, he is the #12 most highly owned quarterback. Cam Newton is expected to improve on last season's #13 fantasy position rank.

CAM NEWTON WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Cam Newton is projected for 21.7 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #12 ranked quarterback and a starter for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Baker Mayfield but behind Deshaun Watson. Week 2 will be better based on projected rank (#2). He is projected for 28.9 fantasy points.

CAM NEWTON IS A BETTER VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $7.9K THAN ON DRAFTKINGS AT $6.5K

He is a better value on FanDuel than on DraftKings based on position specific points per dollar calculations. He is projected for 19.9 FD points and is worth $7.9K on FD. On DK he is projected for 21 points and is worth -$387 less than $6.5K. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
