This is an easy question and an easy answer – Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers.
We know he was the number one pick of the draft coming out of Auburn. We all saw how big and fast he was and all of the runs he made and we thought “Oh, this might translate a little bit to the NFL.” Boy, did it ever!
He was very dynamic in the run game, but the biggest surprise was in the passing game. The design of the offense, his ability to throw the football down the field, the accuracy which he threw with and the fact that he could move around, create some extra time and STILL find receivers down the field all made him one of the biggest surprises of the season.
And so Cam Newton is the Vicks NyQuil Fantasy Football Sleeper Of The Season. Vicks- because in the NFL, there are no sick days.
