Bobby Sylvester

 Dalton put up lousy numbers in his first two games, but against terrific defenses. While the offensive line does need some work, he should roll against one of the worst secondaries in football this week so don't be afraid to start him.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
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. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 It's been a rough start to the season for Andy Dalton and I'm not here to make excuses for him, but we must also keep in mind that he played against the Ravens and Texans in the first two weeks, two of the best defenses in the game. Dalton also deserves his fair share of the blame, but it's an extremely small sample size. You have to wonder how they'll look under Lazor this week and what the game plan will be, but you should expect a lot of A.J. Green, which almost always means good things for Dalton. The Packers defense is the perfect matchup for a "get right" type game.
Kevin Wheeler

They scored 9 points against Buffalo, I might move him down more. 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Newton hasn't shown me much yet, but this matchup made Sam Bradford a superstar over night. I expect Cam and company to put up good numbers even if they struggle. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Saints have allowed the most points to fantasy quarterbacks, Newton has been a little shaky to start the season, but he should be a high-end QB1 in a great matchup.
