Cam Newton is a tough player to place on this list. At first glance, many will be very impressed with the performance of the young rookie, but you have to dig a little deeper. Newton has dazzled fans with his running ability, but his passing skills desperately need work.
In the first six game of the season, Newton has more interceptions (9) than passing touchdowns (7), and his completion percentage is an abysmal 58.5 percent, making him one of the worst in the NFL.
However, the rookie tosses for a ton of yards. At this point in the season, he sits in fourth for passing yards behind Brady, Brees and Rodgers. The sloppy passing has to stop, but his running ability makes him worth the risk as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback.
