Expert Note

Newton has looked somewhere between rusty and downright bad in his two games this season, completing just 34 of his 57 pass attempts and barely running the ball. He continues to recover from his shoulder injury, but now must learn to deal without his most trusted target, Greg Olsen. It's a fantastic matchup at home against the Saints, of course, but Newton has not looked reliable enough this season or last to be trustworthy. He remains a firm QB1 here in light of the matchup, but he's not the top option that owners expected him to be this week.

Cam Newton has a solid day against the Bills but fails to find the end zone

Cam Newton completed 20 of his 32 passing attempts Sunday against the Bills for 228 yards. Newton also added 27 yards rushing on five attempts. However, Newton failed to find the end zone.

Fantasy Impact

It is nice to see Newton using his legs to gain yards but failing to score hurt Newton's fantasy production in a big way Sunday. The loss of Greg Olsen, one of Newton's top targets, does not help matters for Newton going forward. The Panthers get the Saints' porous secondary next week. Look for Newton to put up a bigger stat line next week.
