Panthers QB Cam Newton completed just 10 of 27 passes for 160 yards and 1 TD in Sunday's win over the Chargers. He added 31 rushing yards on 8 attempts, as well as an INT. It was Newton's 4th straight game with fewer than 15 completions and a completion rate of less than 49%. Newton's not playing well. The rushing yards marked his highest total in 4 games, though. That aspect is the only thing keeping Newton in starting contention at all.

Injury Predictor

You can find plenty of little reasons why Newton’s numbers might come down, but he finished last year well ahead of the rest of the position. The gap between him and #2 was larger than the difference between #2 and #6. Combine Newton’s 2015 ascension with the return of Kelvin Benjamin, and you get plenty of scoring potential. No QB has a higher ceiling than Newton. We almost never take the 1st QB off the board in any draft, but Newton could be that guy.
