The Saints are 27th against fantasy quarterbacks and play terrible on the road, this should be a chance for Newton to be a QB1 this week.
The Rams are just 25th against fantasy quarterbacks this year and the 49ers are coming off their bye week. Kaepernick has low QB1 appeal in a favorable matchup.

St. Louis' defense with just 3 picks on the season (and the 2nd most rushing yards by QBs against) seems like the perfect get right game for Kap coming out of the bye.
