Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Packers D is awful against read option and Cam ran 17 freaking times last week. Expect a shootout.
Terrific matchup at home, but with no Megatron, how high can we possibly grade Stafford this week?
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Newton had his first 100-yard rushing game of the season and should be primed for a QB1 game against the Packers in what figures to be a high-scoring game.
Stafford is unlikely to have WR Calvin Johnson this week, but he is still a QB1 against a porous Saints secondary.
