New England Patriots QB Cam Newton went 26-for-40 for 365 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 11. He rushed for only six yards on three carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Newton posted his second 300-yard game of the season against the Texans but has only two passing touchdowns in the last six games. He does add fantasy value because of his running ability but probably can be avoided next week against the Arizona Cardinals.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton completed 13 of 17 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown in a Week 10 win over the Baltimore Ravens. Newton also ran 11 times for 21 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: New England elected to go with a power-based ground attack Sunday night with 18 passing attempts against 39 rushes. It was a successful approach, and you have to wonder if we'll see more of it going forward (or if the heavy rain provided the impetus). Most of Newton's value right now is coming from his rushing TDs, which probably isn't enough for a QB1 spot some weeks but should be adequate for him to be owned in most leagues.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton (neck) has a sore neck from a hit he suffered in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Newton is up to eight rushing touchdowns on the season. The problem, though, is he hasn't thrown for one in the last four games. He remains a fantasy backup despite the propensity to score on the ground.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton completed 27-of-35 passes for 274 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 9 against the New York Jets on Monday, Nov. 9, and he added 10 runs for 16 yards and two scores.
Huddle Up: Newton hasn't thrown a touchdown pass since Sept. 27 against the Raiders, a span of four games, although he does have four rushing scores during the span and eight rushing touchdowns in seven games overall. He remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton went 15-for-25 for 174 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 8. He also rushed for 54 yards and one touchdown on nine carries but lost a fumble during the game.
Huddle Up: Newton has gone three straight games without a touchdown pass but will continue to be the team's starting quarterback for now. He will face the New York Jets next week and can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues because of the matchup.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton completed 9-of-15 passes for just 98 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers and he ran for 19 yards before being benched in the fourth quarter of a blowout loss. Head coach Bill Belichick said he just wanted to get QB Jarrett Stidham some experience, and Newton 'absolutely' remains the starter.
Huddle Up: Newton was tremendous early on, but the Patriots have really gone downhill quickly. He hasn't thrown for a touchdown in two games while getting picked off five times, and his only 300-yard game came in Week 2 in Seattle. Cam is looking like more of a QB2 at this juncture. The Pats travel to meet the Bills in Week 8.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton went 17-for-25 for 157 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Denver Broncos in Week 6. He also rushed for 76 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Newton was back in the lineup after recovering from COVID-19 but struggled in the passing game. He still has plenty of fantasy value because of his running ability and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or bye week replacement next week.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: The lights are green right now for Newton who hasn't been available for fantasy since Week 3. He's a QB1 starter this week against the visiting Broncos.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton (illness) is expected to participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 15, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Newton has been sidelined for a few weeks because he tested positive for COVID-19, but he appears to have a chance to play in Week 6. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because Newton could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback if he plays.
