Cam Newton Daily Fantasy NFL Salary, Profile September 2015
The Carolina Panthers starting quarterback Cam Newton Daily Fantasy NFL salary had him priced at $7.6K. Newton has consistently averaged better than 24 fantasy points per season though that average has dropped slightly each season since his rookie year.
Without a deep talented pool of pass catchers and a gaping hole at left tackle, choosing Newton to anchor your fantasy team comes with plenty of risk, observes FFToday.com.
Versus the Jaguars in Week 1, Newton will be up against an improved defense though losing pass rusher Dante Fowler Jr. to a torn ACL will have ramifications for the Jacksonville pass rush. Linebacker depth is also a concern.
Despite the changes, it’s an uphill battle for Jacksonville with the team finishing 27th against the run and tied for last in interceptions (six) last season. Newton should be considered against Jacksonville in Week 1.
The Saints plummeted from number 4 in total defense to number 31 last season and the preseason hasn’t exactly shown a whole lot of promise for a rebound. Newton struggled against the Saints when they were ranked 4th in defense and excelled against them last season. Once again, he is worth considering for Week 3on your fantasy rosters.
