Opponent: Oakland Raiders
Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers take on Oakland's 27th-ranked pass defense and 24th-ranked rush defense in Week 16.
The Raiders have so far surrendered 31 fantasy points to Ben Roethlisberger, 25 to Peyton Manning and a boat-load of rushing yards.
So what's stopping Newton from carrying his team with both his arms and his legs?
At that point in the season, barring a miracle, Newton and the Panthers will have nothing to play for. Surprisingly, this could be a positive for fantasy owners.
He'll definitely play if he's healthy, and playing against a bad defense with no pressure to win could work miracles for his stats.
