Dan Harris

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.Winston was efficient in the Buccaneers' Week 2 win over the Bears, but he was far from spectacular, completing 18 of 30 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown. His performance is unlikely to get much better this week in Minnesota against a tough Vikings defense that held Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger to a combined 33 fantasy points. The Vikings are incredibly stingy against opposing QBs, rarely allowing a 300-yard passer, and it's unlikely that Winston will break that trend. In a tough road matchup, he's likely not a start for you outside of two-quarterback leagues.

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

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.Minnesota is only 17th against fantasy quarterbacks and they have another tough matchup this week, which makes Winston a viable QB1 this week.
