2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Tom Brady era in New England is officially over. Initially, it appeared as though Bill Belichick was going to start the season with Jarred Stidham at quarterback, a 24-year old with four pass attempts in his young career.

Instead, Belichick made a wise move of adding Cam Newton to the roster on a very team-friendly "prove it" deal for a mere $1.7 million. The deal looks like a smart move for both the player and the team, as Newton has a shot to prove his worth to other teams for a potential long term deal, and the Patriots get a massive upgrade at QB and don't have to commit a ton of money or cap space.

From a fantasy perspective, Newton is a far more exciting option than Stidham, while also increasing the value of the other skill position players in the offense. The last time we saw Newton play at least 14 games was 2018 as a member of the Panthers. Although he was suffering from an injured shoulder at the time, he managed to finish as the No.7 ranked QB in FPts/G.

When healthy, Newton has always produced QB1 numbers due to the rushing production he provides. He has never rushed for fewer than four touchdowns, and he will likely add another 300 to 500 rushing yards.

Considering the fact that the Patriots have little to lose by running Newton, it would not surprise us to see him used in design runs around the goal line. If his shoulder is healed and he can complete over 60% of his passes, Newton could be a nice late-round QB with a ton of upside.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Cam Newton expected to practice on Thursday
Removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 14, 5:00 pm

New England Patriots
New England Patriots starting quarterback Cam Newton is expected to return to practice on Thursday, a source told The Athletic's Jeff Howe on Wednesday, confirming multiple media reports. Newton, who was officially removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, could play in the Patriots' matchup Sunday against the Broncos. (The Athletic)

FFToday's Take: Newton should be back on the field for his fantasy owners in Week 6. Cam has been a top ten fantasy quarterback through the early portion of the season and is slated to be a QB1 against the Broncos.


Chiefs - Patriots game postponed to Monday or Tuesday
Positive COVID-19 tests on both teams

Kansas City Chiefs
Patriots-Chiefs game is being postponed and is expected to be played Monday or Tuesday, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Hopefully further testing of both organizations comes back negative over the next 24 hours so the game can be played on Monday or more likely Tuesday. At this point, we know for sure that Cam Newton will not be playing.


Injury Cam Newton tests positive for COVID-19
KC-NE game in jeapordy?
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 3, 11:25 am

New England Patriots
#Patriots players were alerted this morning to come in and get POC tests because a player had tested positive. That player is Cam Newton. The immediate results were no more positives. As we’ve seen in Tennessee, results often take days to manifest. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The fact that no other player has turned up positive is a good sign, but it's possible the NFL could decide to re-schedule the Patriots / Chiefs game. That being said, the Falcons has a player (A.J. Terrell) test positive last week and after all other tests came back negative the game was played as scheduled. Stay tuned...
