Cam Newton had an impressive showing for the home folks with his game of 253 passing yards, 71 rushing yards and a score in each of those departments in the huge win over New Orleans.
Analysis: Cam lit up New Orleans like it was Mardi Gras. He had a 12.7 YPA, which exceeds the 12.5 he would have needed to have that component be perfect for a 158.3. His passer rating was 129.2 because of only one passing TD, but there's no doubt any concern about Cam having a sophomore slump is totally gone. He'll have a chance to be fantasy's top QB and will be a top option against the porous Giants pass D for Week 3 on Thursday Night Football.
