Should We Be Excited About Cam?

The big news in New England (if you want to call it that) was the signing of Cam Newton. The quarterback room is filled with unknowns and misfits already with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer. Cam Newton is looking to breath a little life into the tail end of his career but it will take gale force winds for his final chapter to be anything other than a light summer breeze. Let’s forget last season after going down week two and little to no stats to critique.

The 2016 – 2018 seasons were already showing major signs of decline. During that period Newton barely cracked the top 20 in passing yards coupled with 19, 22 and 24 passing touchdowns over the three year span. Let’s also add in an average of 14 interceptions per season. Newton is, well at least was, considered a dual threat but since the 10 rushing TD season of 2015, he averaged just 5 between 2016-2018 (none in 2019). It’s going to be a tough row to hoe in New England and I still don’t see how any positional player is worth a fantasy roster except James White, and even that is a stretch.
