Cam Newton has yet to fail me. I’ve been hitching my wagon to Cam Newton for the past few years now. Cam is an elite fantasy quarterback because of his running capability, and knack for finding the end zone.

Newton was the center of allot of criticism regarding his body language and play during the 2012 season. I think this criticism was entirely unfair. Look at Newton’s numbers and you’ll see he accumulated more fantasy point than the likes of Peyton Manning. I know that doesn’t translate into wins on the field, but the Panthers only lost 2 games but more than 1 possession. If the Panthers can close out half of these games, their easily a playoff team. People also criticized Newton’s body language at the end of the games, when he draped a towl over his head and looked dejected. I don’t have any problem with this, I just think that Newton is an emotional player and hates to lose. I don’t know any other player in the league that smiles as much as Newton or looks like he’s having as much fun.

I think the emergence of Brandon LaFell could really help out the Carolina offense and further open up the field for Cam. It’s been reported that Carolina will look to throw the ball down field more this season, which will showcase Cam’s rocket arm. I currently have Newton as my #4 QB ahead of Tomy Brady and behind only Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Peyton Manning.

Getting Cam in late round 2 or early round 3 (where he is going in allot of mock drafts) is a steal.
