Targeting quarterbacks who are recovering from offseason shoulder surgery isn’t usually recommended, despite Andrew Luck’s success in 2018. Still, Newton’s ability to heavily influence games on the ground, combined with a plethora of playmakers capable of thriving in Carolina’s quick-hitting passing game, could make him a huge fantasy football bargain.

Plus, his ridiculous rushing ability will always be an issue for defenses, and he’s a problem that’s nearly impossible to solve when he’s also at his best as a passer. Ian Hartitz
