Cam Newton, New England Patriots vs. Denver Broncos
Fresh from quarantine, Newton is back and should help get this offense back on track. The Broncos are one of the best run defenses right now, and we should all view Newton as a hybrid RB/QB. He should throw more than run, but we all know he’s going to take his shots.
In the Broncos’ first three games, Ryan Tannehill, Ben Roethlisberger, and Tom Brady picked the Broncos apart to multiple throwing touchdowns and at least 249 passing yards. And though unconventional, Sam Darnold did not throw a touchdown against the Broncos but still scored over 20 fantasy points, anchoring his performance with an epic touchdown scramble. All Newton has to do is get into that open field and we all know he can do the same.
