Cam Newton released by New England Patriots

The New England Patriots have released quarterback Cam Newton (per Jim McBride)

Fantasy Impact: With this simple move, the Patriots have completely changed their offense. Rookie Mac Jones will now be the starting QB for New England and after his preseason performances, he could be a sneaky fantasy add. Fantasy managers should now heavily target Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson as the goal line work has just opened up. The Patriots pass catchers—Jonnu Smith, Jakobi Meyers chief among them—also become more fantasy viable with red zone targets also opening up.
