Ask the Expert Question: Pick one slow starter that you believe will turn things around the rest of the way, and say why.

Pick one slow starter that you believe will turn things around the rest of the way, and say why.

Cam Newton. No one can say he is not starting slow this year with just 189 yards per game average along with .5 TDs and 1.33 INTs. Ouch! Why do I think he will turn things around after losing Greg Olsen and possibly Kelvin Benjamin for some time? Because Newton has not fully recovered from his shoulder injury and...stop this is madness. I did not draft him this year because I was afraid this would happen. So no I am not going to say he will bounce back. Instead I will defend someone I drafted a ton. Isaiah Crowell. There I said it. I liked Crowell to have a big year and despite a dismal start I still believe in him. Why? One, he is talking to the coach about more work so that is encouraging. Second, the OL has to gel sometime this year and that could mean more holes to run through. OK who am I might mean a hole to run through as the Browns have not had any in 3 games. Finally, DeShone Kizer may get a fire burning under the Browns and inspire more from everyone including Crowell.
