Play of the Week and Pay Up For: Cam Newton, Panthers ($6,600)
It’s rare I’ll pay this much for a QB. But there are exceptions. And this is 1 of them.
Newton has been excellent all season, posting 24+ DraftKings points in 5 of 7 outings and never dipping below 18. And now he’s in the best spot yet at home for a putrid Bucs defense that sits 31st in DK points allowed to QBs and dead last in Football Outsiders’ pass defense rankings.
Carolina is implied for a massive 30.75 points in this one — 2nd highest on the main slate. And if they get there, Newton will be a huge part of it. He’s accounted for 17 of the Panthers’ 20 offensive TDs (85%) this season.
