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. 
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
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.
