Scouting Report

Week 15 vs. New Orleans Saints

Cam Newton struggled against a surprisingly stingy Browns defense last week, throwing for 265 yards and a pick, while adding 23 yards on the ground. Newton has largely been productive this season, despite the Panthers being in the middle of a devastating five-game losing streak. His 473 yards and four touchdowns on the ground give him a high floor in most leagues, making him a steady fantasy option.

This week, Newton will face a Saints defense that has allowed the third-most fantasy points to the quarterback position this season. In a game where both teams could be airing it out, Newton has a chance to put up big numbers. While his turnovers have been concerning, fantasy owners should keep him active this week in a great matchup.
