Scouting Report

Super Bowl vs. Denver

Cam Newton dominated the Cardinals in the NFC Championship Game two weeks ago in a blowout victory for the Panthers. He finished the game with 335 yards passing with two touchdowns and a pick, plus he added 47 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the ground. Cam has been a dominant force this year, and has been fantastic through two playoff starts this year.

This week, Cam will face a dominant Denver defense that was fourth in the NFL in scoring defense this year. Still, Cam should be able to use his versatility to put up points against the Broncos, and he’s far and away the better fantasy option in the Super Bowl. Fantasy owners should look to secure Cam in their lineups this week if possible, as he’s a big step up over Peyton Manning at this stage in their respective careers.
