First off, this will have elements of overreaction- but if Matt Nagy doesn’t learn from this game, aside from Allen Robinson, this could become a brutal fantasy season for the Chicago skill-position players.
As we inch closer to the last slate of preseason games, we have plenty of fantasy fallout from a plethora of news items that surfaced today-
• Great news in Carolina as coach Ron Rivera said he has “no doubt” that Cam Newton (foot) will be ready for Week 1. Although he suffered a mid-foot sprain last week, he worked on the side the past two days, which is certainly better than having him in a boot during practices. Based on this news, it seems as if those yet to draft should be able to draft him as they typically would, and maybe he’ll even fall an extra round to give fantasy owners added value. With an excellent set of weapons, Newton can easily be a high-end QB1 this season.

As the Patriots dynasty continues to move forward, we’ve seen the offense go through varying stages.

But this year, they could be headed to the stone age after dabbling with it in the playoffs last year.
