They scored 9 points against Buffalo, I might move him down more. 
Chet Gresham

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.Siemian isn't going to be as precise as Peyton Manning when distributing touchdowns between his top-two receivers, but I expect Thomas to see a few extra targets near the goal line after Emmanuel Sanders reeled in two touchdowns last week.

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.The Bills are 5th against receivers with an easy early schedule, Thomas is playing on a hot offense and is a WR2 with upside.
