The resurgent Cam Newton is worth starting at quarterback in week #8 of fantasy football.
After sinking to a 1-3 start, Newton has rallied the Carolina Panthers to a 3-3 record and earned quarterback ratings of 143.4 and 136.3 in the last two games. What triggered the improvement?
The Carolina quarterback credits increased concentration and playing "smarter" as being the reasons for his improved play in the second quarter of the season.
Tonight's game between Carolina and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-6) provides two "Sleeper" candidates. Wide receivers Vincent Jackson of Tampa Bay and Steve Smith of Carolina could provide 15 fantasy points each in this week #8 NFC South showdown.
Tampa Bay quarterback Mike Glennon should not be on anyone's fantasy football roster.
Look for Carolina to win their third straight game, 30-20.
