Cam Newton ($6,500)
There’s not a lot to love at the QB position on DraftKings this week with Lamar Jackson struggling, Dak Prescott injured and Kyler Murray, Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen and Russell Wilson not on the main slate.
That leaves Newton as one of the highest upside QBs remaining — and we may get him at lower ownership coming off a 2-week absence due to COVID-19.
Cam was said to be asymptomatic, so he shouldn’t have any restrictions in Week 6 against the Broncos, who have given up the 18th most fantasy points to opposing QBs.
I expect the Patriots to dominate on both sides of the ball and Cam should have an excellent chance at rushing TDs with the Patriots expected to be in the red zone early and often.
Newton is my favorite GPP QB of the week. I’ll have him in at least 25% of my lineups.
