Cam Newton or Matthew Stafford?

Postby Xtreme » Sun Oct 23, 2011 3:43 am

Newton has been the better fantasy QB, but not by a huge margin. I think I'm still waiting for the let-down on him. Can he really keep up the great stats for the entire season? When will he have that game where he doesn't save his stats with a rushing TD? This week he plays a pretty good WAS defense.

Stafford is a cleaner passer, was great in the beginning of the season but has trailed off a bit in recent games. With RB Best out, I expect they'll throw more. Plus, it's a decent offensive opponent in ATL, so they'll not coast the 2nd half, and the ATL pass defense is mediocre at best.

I'm torn. What say you?

Every week someone asks this question... and every week they both put up good numbers. Washington is far and away the better defense at shutting down the passing game. Also, Atlanta is more likely to put up a fight and make it a high scoring affair. I'll take Stafford.

I would not trust Newton over Stafford yet. He is apt to outscore Stafford any week, but just as apt to put up a stinker.

Go with Stafford.

Best of luck.

What is your scoring?


If you league counts FL and INT, I go Stafford. I mean he easily is going to have 25 FP this week but Newton may have a few more if you do not count the negatives.


I go Stafford.


Good luck to ya!

I would go with stafford. With best out and a high scoring atl offense probably means lots of passing for stafford today
