I have Cam in one of my leagues....the one the one that is my "fun" league and doesn't have a buy in. Because this is my "fun" league, i can take chances and start him. Obviously, the packers have one of the best defenses in the NFL and he put up over 400 yards again. So if you look it at that way, he actually proved himself this week. The other side of the coin is that down the road, defenses will know more of what to expect and can better prepare. Personally, if i had Cam in my money league I'd play him (over Matt Ryan ). And I'd play him till he turns in a bad game. But right now, he's on a roll, and so I'm going to roll with him.

I have Schaub too, and i might sit him against the Saints.

Romo's your starter though..
He's playing the undefeated Redskins, could be a toughie - Carolina is playing the sucky Jaguars..

Newton's really impressed me by pulling another big performance in week 2, so i would probably start him this week!

I have Schaub, Fitzpatrick and Newton on my team (was auditioning QB's after a dismal week 1). Romo has a punctured lung and the thing is he could maybe be without Dez and Miles Austin next week. Depends how Dez feels this coming week, Austin apparently aggrevated his hammy yesterday and talk from Cowboys camp is he might be out 1-2 weeks (keep an eye on this). Newton plays a Jaguars team who has MJD and...............um........yea. After doing what he has against two better teams IMO, I see no reason not to start him. Now apparently he was in a boot for protective measures, so keep an eye on that too. At this point though, he is making a strong case to be started.
