Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
The Patriots inexplicably could not run the ball last week against the Texans, leaving Newton to shoulder the load. He was mostly up to the task, and with the addition of a successful but short hail mary, he ended the day with a big number of passing yards (365). The New England offense has been hit or miss, they really need to shorten the game by running the ball, but that is not a given especially against a Cardinals team that can put up a lot of points on the board.
Passing: 223 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 26 Yards, 1 TD.

Season Projections
During the 2018 regular season, Newton was part of the MVP conversation and the fantasy QB4 through Week 13 before he went down with a nagging right (throwing) shoulder injury that needed surgery (it was his second shoulder operation in the last four years). Newton had displayed new-found precision as a passer, hitting on a career-high 67.9 percent of his throws and setting new career highs in passing yards per game (242.5) and completions. This past season, Newton suited up for only two contests before suffering a foot injury and had to go under the knife again. If the 31-year-old Newton's health holds up, Tom Brady's heir apparent will have top-25 fantasy upside at the minimum. Newton's supporting cast, which includes Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu, James White and work-in-progress N'Keal Harry, isn't very deep and won't help him generate high-volume passing production. It would make sense for the Patriots to use Newton in a balanced attack, featuring short and intermediate throws, which would help reduce the number of hits that he takes. Newton probably will still scramble just enough on bootlegs and designed runs (he should crack the top-10 in rushing at the position) to keep opposing defenses focused on him. Newton's recent durability problems make him a risky selection, but you already knew that.

Passing: 993 Yards, 3 TD, 4 INT.
Rushing: 147 Yards, 3 TD.
