Cam Newton struggled in Week 3, but the outlook is promising for a bounce back in Week 4, which is why he is the No. 1 fantasy quarterback option. Minnesota pummeled and harassed Newton all afternoon last week, but on Sunday Newton gets to face an Atlanta defense that just allowed Drew Brees to throw the ball 54 times for 376 yards and three touchdowns.
Philip Rivers, facing a New Orleans defense which was just torched by Matt Ryan on Monday night, checks in at No. 2. If Matt Ryan can throw for a pair of touchdowns on them, so can Rivers. While the Diego Chargers are missing many pieces of their offense, Rivers has been known to make things happen with the weapons he has. He's a solid QB1 this week. Don't forget this is the first bye week, so no Aaron Rodgers or the surprisingly productive Carson Wentz.
Teams on bye: Green Bay, Philadelphia
