The Chiefs allow the 2nd fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks, but Big Ben has had some big games at home against tough teams. He is still a solid QB1 this week.
Newton looks like he is going to play this week, but he is only a desperation QB2, as the Browns have a tough secondary and it is unknown how much mobility Newton will have coming off his in back injury suffered in a car accident.

Cam's status is worth monitoring. If he can't go, Derek Anderson will get another start.
