From a fantasy lens, dozens and dozens of players being sidelined is already greatly impacting the depth of your league and roster. Starting stars is as justifiable as ever, but I am still here to dump cold water on your optimism on a weekly basis, highlighting a handful of upcoming “busts” for the forthcoming slate of games.

Newton currently stands as the QB7 in fantasy points per game — safe to say I’m skittish in telling you to expect a fantasy output below his 25-point average … yet a few points send me in that direction.
