Player Notes
Oct 19 10:50am ET

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton was unable to get much going against the Denver Broncos in Week 6. He completed 17 of 25 passing attempts for 157 yards and zero touchdowns with two interceptions in the loss. He was able to somewhat salvage his fantasy value with 76 rushing yards and one touchdown. However, it was a fairly disappointing performance from Newton. He might have low-end QB1 value against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton went 17-for-25 for 157 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Denver Broncos in Week 6. He also rushed for 76 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Newton was back in the lineup after recovering from COVID-19 but struggled in the passing game. He still has plenty of fantasy value because of his running ability and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or bye week replacement next week.

Oct 16 3:30pm ET

The New England Patriots are placing center James Ferentz on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday, according to a source. The Patriots are still on schedule to face the Broncos in Week 6 on Sunday, but if the game winds up being played, quarterback Cam Newton will be taking snaps from someone else. It's something to keep an eye on, but it shouldn't deter fantasy managers from considering Newton as an upside QB1 in his return after a positive COVID-19 test himself. Denver's D has allowed the 10th-most fantasy points per game to the QB position and are without their top playmakers on that side of the ball. They've also allowed signal-callers to run for 96 yards, eighth-most in the NFL.

Oct 15 1:50pm ET

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton and cornerback Stephon Gilmore have been removed from the COVID-19 list and returned to practice on Thursday. Newton missed the Week 4 game after a positive COVID-19 test, but he will be back on the field this Sunday against the Broncos, where he'll be a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 for fantasy managers. The Broncos are allowing the 10th-most fantasy points to opposing signal-callers this year and have been trotting out a banged-up defense all season. The Patriots Defense gets a boost with Gilmore returning to the fold, and their team defense should be firmly inside the top 10 this week. The All-Pro corner's presence will be bad news for Broncos receivers this weekend.

Oct 15 1:33pm ET

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Spin: The lights are green right now for Newton who hasn't been available for fantasy since Week 3. He's a QB1 starter this week against the visiting Broncos.

From TheHuddle

Oct 14 7:03pm ET

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Oct. 14.

From TheHuddle

Oct 14 4:50pm ET

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton is expected to rejoin the team when they return to practice on Thursday, according to a source. That would put Newton on track to start in Week 6 against the Broncos after he missed the Week 4 loss to the Chiefs after a positive COVID-19 test. The former MVP has reportedly been asymptomatic since testing positive, so he has a good shot at returning this weekend. Make sure to check back through the end of the week to see if Newton is practicing. If he's available this Sunday, Newton should have QB1 upside against a Broncos Defense that will be missing most of their top playmakers.

From RotoBaller

Oct 14 4:03pm ET

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton (illness) is expected to participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 15, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: Newton has been sidelined for a few weeks because he tested positive for COVID-19, but he appears to have a chance to play in Week 6. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because Newton could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback if he plays.

From TheHuddle

Oct 13 7:10pm ET

The New England Patriots are slated to make their return to the field Sunday against Denver, but the first step in that process is getting back to the teams facility, which is expected to happen Wednesday. But despite their presence there, New England isnt slated to practice, with that first time back out penciled in for Thursday. Ultimately, it appears as if the Patriots will have something of a short practice week ahead of their matchup versus the Broncos, which throws the effectiveness of top fantasy options such as Cam Newton into flux. That the team is set to regroup is a safe indication that the COVID-19 outbreak is behind the wide group, a positive for the likelihood of Sundays game taking place after postponements.

From RotoBaller

Oct 12 5:30pm ET

Based on NFL rules, since 10 days have passed since New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton tested positive for COVID-19, he could return to the team for Week 6 against the Broncos as long as he has not shown any symptoms. But head coach Bill Belichick continues to remain non-committal on whether Newton will be available in Week 6 against Denver after the game was pushed out of Week 5. There seems to be a good chance that the 31-year-old will play this Sunday, but it's not a guarantee. If he's unable to get clearance, Jarrett Stidham would likely receive the start against Denver. Newton will have QB1 upside for fantasy managers, if he plays, against a Broncos Defense that is extremely banged up and vulnerable at all levels.

Oct 11 10:30am ET

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton (COVID-19) did not appear in line to play Monday versus Denver as he works his way back from a positive COVID-19 test. But in the wake of the decision to postpone the contest until next Sunday due to new COVID-19 positives within the Patriots organization, what once appeared to be a game started by Jarrett Stidham, may be started by Newton after all. The duo of Stidham and Brian Hoyer underwhelmed mightily in pinch duty versus Kansas City earlier in the week, leaving a chasm at the QB1 slot in New England. In an albeit small sample size, Newton has completed a career-high 68.1 percent of his passes this year, while accounting for six touchdowns (four rushing, two passing) in three games. With the Denver defense slammed with injuries, Newton, should he prove healthy, will regain much of his previous fantasy appeal for next Sundays matchup.

Oct 11 8:10am ET

The New England Patriots had an additional member of the organization test positive for COVID-19 on Sunday morning, further complicating the teams return to the field. But per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the league is still planning on holding New England versus Denver on Monday night as part of a Monday Night Football doubleheader. The Patriots have had their facility shut down three times in the past 10 days due to an outbreak within the franchise that is believed to have first affected quarterback Cam Newton. Despite the nature of the spread, New England was able to play its contest against Kansas City earlier in the week before having the game versus the Broncos shifted to Monday. Check back for the latest updates on the evolving situation.

From RotoBaller

Oct 10 6:10pm ET

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said that quarterback Cam Newton and cornerback Stephon Gilmore won't practice on Saturday after testing positive for COVID-19, but he ignored questions about who would start under center on Monday night against the Broncos if Newton isn't available for the second straight week. New England had no new positive COVID-19 tests from Friday, allowing them to reopen their facilities on Saturday. Newton and Gilmore remain on the COVID-19 list, and Belichick continues to say that they are taking the QB situation "day by day." It's unknown if Brian Hoyer remains the top backup after he was replaced by Jarrett Stidham in the Week 4 loss to the Chiefs. As of right now, it seems unlikely that Newton will play on Monday night against Denver, so you should have him benched for this weekend. Whether it's Hoyer or Stidham against Denver, either signal-caller would be a mere desperation QB2 streamer in superflex leagues.

From RotoBaller

Oct 10 10:33am ET

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton has not been ruled out of starting Week 5's game versus the Denver Broncos, even though he will not practice Saturday, Oct. 10, according to head coach Bill Belichick. 'I'm not getting into a bunch of hypotheticals,' Belichick said, when asked about who would be the starting quarterback if Newton was unable to play Monday, Oct. 12. 'We're taking it day by day, hour by hour.'

Fantasy Spin: Due to the uncertainty surrounding this situation, fantasy owners might be best served avoiding New England quarterbacks altogether this week, especially since the Patriots won't play until Monday night. If Cam Newton is declared the starter against the Broncos, he should be viewed as a low-end QB1 option in fantasy leagues with 12 or more teams. If either Jarrett Stidham or Brian Hoyer gets the starting nod, they are only worthy of consideration as starting options in deep two-quarterback leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 7 2:40pm ET

New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore confirmed that he is asymptomatic after testing positive for COVID-19 this week. Gilmore is also claiming that he followed all of the league's COVID-19 protocols prior to testing positive. Because of the positive test, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year won't practice with the team on Wednesday and is in danger of missing the Week 5 contest against the Broncos, if the game is even played at all. The game this Sunday could be in danger of being postponed with both Gilmore and quarterback Cam Newton testing positive for COVID-19. The good news is that both players are reportedly asymptomatic, but it's something to keep a close eye on the rest of the week.

From RotoBaller

Oct 7 11:40am ET

New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore was the only player on the team to test positive for COVID-19 from Tuesday's round of testing, according to a source. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year joins quarterback Cam Newton on the COVID-19 list, and Gilmore isn't expected to practice on Wednesday. At this point, it's highly unlikely that Gilmore will be cleared to play in Week 5 against the Broncos. Still, even if Gilmore misses this weekend's game, the Patriots Defense should be considered a strong fantasy unit against a Broncos team that remains depleted of their offensive weapons. Wide receiver Courtland Sutton (knee) is out for the year and they might also be without quarterback Drew Lock (shoulder) and tight end Noah Fant (ankle).

Oct 6 4:30pm ET

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton hasn't shown any symptoms after testing positive for COVID-19 last weekend, but that doesn't mean that he won't experience some symptoms in the next couple days. Newton could have a chance to play this Sunday against the Broncos if he returns two negative tests within a 24-hour span, but that's a big if right now. The 31-year-old sat out of the Week 4 loss to the Chiefs on Monday night and would have QB1 upside if he plays against a Broncos Defense that has been decimated by injuries. If Newton misses a second straight game, it'll likely be Jarrett Stidham, who took over for an ineffective Brian Hoyer on Monday, getting the start against Denver. Stidham threw two interceptions himself against KC, which would make him a low-end QB2 streamer in superflex leagues.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 11:50am ET

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton, who tested positive for COVID-19 last Friday, was asymptomatic as of Monday, according to a source. It means that Newton could be cleared to return in five days since his first positive test if he continues not to show any symptoms, has two negative tests 24 hours apart within those five days and is cleared by the team doctor. He could return to practice by Thursday, which would give him a chance to play in Week 5 against the Broncos. Newton was ruled out for Week 4 against the Chiefs after his positive test. Against a Denver team that has allowed the 11th-most fantasy points per game to the QB position, Newton would have QB1 upside this Sunday if he's cleared to return.

From RotoBaller

Oct 4 9:30am ET

New England patriots quarterback Cam Newton (COVID-19) is unlikely to be back for Week 5 after testing positive for COVID-19. Nothing is set in stone yet, but Newton would have to pass two tests once the virus leaves his body, which becomes harder when there's just one week to do it. It seems likely that Brian Hoyer will be more than just a fill-in for one game. Hoyer is a downgrade from Newton, though receivers Julian Edelman and N'Keal Harry can still be played, as they'll be the top two targets in this offense no matter who's under center.

From RotoBaller

Oct 3 11:40am ET

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the Week 4 game against the Chiefs. Newton will likely have to miss more than just one game as he quarantines, so his fantasy managers will have to reverse course quickly and go in another direction. It's really bad news for the Patriots and for Newton's fantasy managers, as he was looking for a bounce-back performance against KC this week after putting up a dud against the Raiders in Week 3. It's unclear if Jarrett Stidham is healthy enough to fill in this Sunday, but if he can't, it would be veteran Brian Hoyer under center. New England will still have to throw often to keep up with the Chiefs offense this week, but the move from Newton to either Stidham or Hoyer should cause you to downgrade both wide receivers Julian Edelman and N'Keal Harry this week and for however long Newton is out.
