Cam Newton ($6,100) – New England Patriots - Value
Making his debut with the New England Patriots, Cam Newton finds himself in a favorable matchup against the Miami Dolphins in Week 1. Prior to his injury-riddled 2019 season, Newton completed 67.9-percent of his passes for 3,395 yards and 24 scores back in 2018. More impressively, he did so while playing through a debilitating shoulder injury.
Looking at the Week 1 matchup, Miami improved their secondary with the acquisitions of Byron Jones and Noah Igbinoghene. However, both Xavien Howard and Jones popped up on the Miami injury report, putting their Week 1 status’ in question. Even with an improved secondary, Newton should find time to throw here. Miami’s defense that ranked dead last in adjusted sack rate last year.
Also providing a solid floor with his legs, Newton notched at least 448 rushing years in each of his last eight healthy seasons. Priced at just $6,100 on DraftKings, Newton provides immense value in Week 1.
