Seattle D really not elite right now and he's at home so he could offer solid production.
The Ravens have been playing really nasty defense and Cincy hasn't looked great. I'd probably only trust The Red Rifle if AJ Green returns.

The Seahawks have been struggling, but even over the last 3 weeks they are still 10th against fantasy quarterbacks. It is not a great matchup for Newton.
