Cam Newton is still a bad dude, just in case you were wondering. He passed for 284 yards at Cincinnati on Sunday while also delivering the week's fifth-highest rushing total (107). He didn't target himself in the passing game, unfortunately, so we can't quite call him a triple-threat QB. But we can say with relative confidence that Cam is back to being Cam — the upper-tier fantasy weapon with the S on his chest.
Newton passed for a pair of touchdowns against the Bengals, connecting with usual suspects Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen, and he targeted ten different receivers on the day, connecting with nine. Cam also ran all over Cincy, read-optioning them to death, crossing the goal-line on this grown-man carry, with various defenders clinging to him. He appeared to tweak the thumb on his throwing hand late in regulation, but he remained in the game through overtime.
