Fantasy Football Week 1: Breakout Player Cam Newton

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey Contributor IISeptember 7, 2012

Cam Newton was more than impressive as the starting quarterback for the Auburn Tigers two years ago, but fantasy football owners were hesitant to draft him during the 2011 season because they hadn't seen how his college skills would translate to the NFL.

Now that the Carolina Panthers QB has a full NFL season under his belt—and was perhaps the No. 1 sleeper fantasy pick of last year—we expect him to have one extraordinary season in 2012. Watch the video above to see what our NFL draft lead writer Matt Miller thinks of Newton's fantasy potential, and be sure to offer your own opinion in the comments section below!
