Week 16 Start of the Week – Cam Newton

Cam Newton, Panthers, Fantasy Football Start of the Week, Week 16Each week The Kommish will look at the various matchups across the league and come up with a recommendation for “Start of the Week”. Since The Kommish is a fantasy genius (not really) you should take this as the surest thing possible in a given week. I don’t think “surest” is a word, but this Start of the Week is the real deal regardless.

Newton has been hot in the 2nd half of the season, and this week he has huge potential for a big game as the Panthers are home against the Raiders. Oakland is ranked 26th against opposing QBs and they are giving up the 2nd most points to running backs. That could translate to big opportunities for a mobile quarterback like Newton.  I’m predicting 25+ fantasy points for Cam in Week 16, and that’s just what you need to slide into the winner’s circle in your fantasy championship.
