The #Texans are signing QB Tyrod Taylor to an incentive-laden contract, similar to what Cam Newton and Jameis Winston agreed to in recent days, per source. It can be worth up to $12.5 million, but the base value is less than half that. Solid backup money, and more if he plays.
NE QB Cam Newton - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. New York Jets
Cam Newton's contributions in the passing game are negligible at this point. He is essentially a pure running quarterback and was pulled last week for Jarrett Stidham as the Patriots offensive struggles continued. The only saving grace for Newton this week is a matchup with the lowly Jets, though they have been playing better as of late after beating the Rams and Browns. With Newton's passing floor being nonexistent and rushing production being difficult to project, he is a volatile fantasy option, and one that will bust more of than he booms. If you're playing Newton this week, it's because you're banking on the Patriots trampling the Jets in the run game, which is far from a safe bet. Newton is nothing more than a volatile QB2 at this point in his career.
