I'm in a pickle right now. Matt Ryan only put up about 10 points last week against Chicago
while Cam Newton put up 35 points and over 400 yards against Arizona. I am not sure whether to start Ryan or Newton
this Sunday. What do you guys think?

Unless your starting QB is Rodgers, Brady, or Brees, I would start Cam Newton EVERY week until he proves it was a fluke.
It would be one thing if he had two or three starts with those kind of gaudy numbers. As it stands now, he put up one big game against a poor Arizona defense. I have no idea how he'll do against Green Bay, so I'm a bit skeptical. Matt Ryan, on the other hand, is a pretty proven vet with a lot of offensive weapons. I find it hard to believe he can only put up 10 points again, except that he's playing Philadelphia. Yikes.
End of the 1st Quarter, Cam Newton already has more than 13 points, more than Matt Ryan had all of last week. He's driving at will against Green Bay. And he's on the bench. Matt Ryan is going up against Philadelphia. Goddamnit.
I only have one QB on my roster and my work buddy has Cam as his third QB. We talked about a trade earlier in the week, and obviously I should have pulled the trigger while the price was lower. Now he'll probably want more. Who would be reasonable to offer?
QB - Romo
WR - Roddy White
WR - Holmes
WR - Devery Henderson
RB - Gore
RB - Blount
FLX - Tolbert
TE - Aaron Hernandez
DEF - Saints
K - Folk
BN - Michael Bush
BN - Roy Williams
BN - Woodhead
BN - Daniel Thomas
BN - Emmanuel Sanders
BN - Dallas Clark
I don't want to over pay because this is a back up spot. But it seems like Newton would be a good back up to have. His match up on Romo's bye week is against the Saints, and that could be pretty high scoring.
