Cam Newton (CAR, QB)
Cam said it best after one of his two trips to the end zone last week: “I’m back”. As long as he remains the starter (which seems likely), he’s worth starting as a low-end QB1 against a Washington defense that lost Chase Young for the season and is giving up more points to QBs than anyone else.
Justin Herbert (LAC, QB)
Herbert has four one-TD games and four games with 223 passing yards or fewer. His ceiling is always high, but clearly his floor is, too. Against Pittsburgh’s ninth-ranked pass defense, he could be in line for another disappointing performance.
