 Newton salvaged his fantasy day last weekend against the Vikings with a late 62-yard run, though he still managed just 137 yards passing and one touchdown. Things should be better for Newton this weekend against a mediocre Packers defense. With Aaron Rodgers back, it's likely that the Panthers are going to need points to keep up with Green Bay, which should allow Newton to pile on the fantasy points, regardless of his inefficiency. He's a strong QB1 play this weekend.

Big Ben had a 500-yard game last week and he has 14 touchdowns and just 4 picks in his last four games. Sunday's game figures to be a shootout. The Packers are just 23rd against fantasy quarterbacks, Newton should have a monster day this week against the Packers defense.
