My favorite Stew is of the J variety. The Carolina backfield is a headache for fantasy owners but I don’t mind taking him or DeAngelo on the low. They’re both super talented and are only 1 injury away from being a top 10 running back.

Cam “Look What I Can Do” Newton
Cam Newton -
Newton failed to throw over 300 yards in any game after Carolina’s bye week last year. He only surpassed the 215 yard passing mark twice in the last eight games of the season. Opposing defenses started to shut down Newton’s pass game later in the season and forced him to run the ball. Teams will have a better idea of how to contain Newton after studying his 2011 game play. Newton will most likely lose the majority of his rushing touchdowns and short yardage work to recently acquired Mike Tolbert, who averaged 9.5 touchdowns in the past two years as a goal line back with San Diego. The Panthers most likely will use Tolbert instead of Newton at the goal line because they will not want to take a chance and have their franchise quarterback seriously injured.
Glad to see I wasn’t the only one who noticed those declining passing numbers.
Cam Newton has more swag than you
so ready for him to be traded
“Excuse me” - Jonathan Stewart
Should I start Cam Newton or Drew Brees this week ? They play against each other.
I don’t think there will be much difference between what they score. Newton has the upside to go nuts against the Saints defense, but Brees is the safe start. If you’re confident in the rest of your team, I would start Newton.
