Onion Sports has expert analysis on which players to keep and which players to drop from your fantasy football starting lineup this week:

Start ’Em

  • Cam Newton (QB): After putting up impressive numbers against the Bengals, Newton is starting to look like his old, totally overhyped self
  • Drew Brees (QB): Brees will be on a mission to prevent the Saints defense from putting New Orleans in a 2-4 hole to start the season
  • Julius Thomas (TE): Thomas has consistently been able to haul in the tough throws from Peyton Manning, whether they’re 1.2 inches above his chest or 2.3 inches below it

Sit ’Em

  • Doug Baldwin (WR): While capable of delivering explosive performances, the Seahawks wide receiver sometimes struggles to make the routine insult
  • Darren McFadden (RB): The agile running back has been an integral component of the Raiders offense this year
  • Jake Locker (QB): The Titans are taking on a professional football team this week, an opponent that Locker has struggled with in the past
