Selling High- Cam Newton

Cam Newton threw for 422 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Cam Newton may have put up some solid numbers in the opener but he did it against Arizona. Arizona was 29th last year in total yards allowed, 23rd against the pass and 30th in points allowed. Arizona managed to “put” up these numbers in a division where no team finished at or above .500 last year.

Cam will be a solid fantasy quarterback one day but that day isn’t going to be any time soon. Take a look at the defenses coming up for Cam- Green Bay, Jacksonville, Chicago, New Orleans, Atlanta and Washington(do not sleep on their defense). Cam will remain a lower tier QB2 this year and the smartest play here is to sell this guy while he is hot. His value will not get any higher and now is the time to stockpile on depth at running back or upgrade at another position. Perhaps the biggest surprise with Cam was only eighteen rushing yards on eight carries. Cam has to produce on the ground if you are to keep the rookie.
