Rivers has a tough matchup this week, the Miami Dolphins allow the eighth fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks and Miami is a long trip with an early start time for Rivers.
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.
