ESPN.com Well every year at this time the fantasy football sleepers and bust come out of the wood work.
The ESPN fantasy staff release their predictions for the 2012 season and while most are deep sleepers and predictable bust. However a few standout and they are worth considering as real game changers come draft day.
The one that stands out the most is the selection of Cam Newton as the bust pick for 2012.
Now last year I said Cam Newton was going to be a huge NFL Draft bust so I am not as eager to make the same pick twice. I am surprised that seven staffers are convinced he is a bust.
Do they know something we don’t?
If you look at Cam Newton’s schedule he plays the 4th easiest defensive passing scheule and the 7th easiest defensive rushing schedule. So Newton has an even easier schedule than last season.
So why all the hate? They some how believe that defenses took away the deep ball from Newton.
News Flash! Yes defenses did take the deep ball away from Newton but he still made plays with his feet and scored TD’s!
So it is still safe in my opinion to draft Cam Newton as early as the second round in most leagues.
