9.Cam Newton will be the starter in New England if he's healthy (FantasyPros) Patriots QB Cam Newton has not been guaranteed the starting job, however, according to sources, if he's fully healthy, it'll be his job to lose. Analysis: Newton signed a one-year prove it deal of up to $7.5M in incentives. If he's healthy, and that's the key after shoulder and foot injuries the past couple seasons, he'll be the unquestioned starter for the Patriots.

Newton likely will compete for the starting job in New England and could be a starting option in leagues. 3 days
