Seattle D really not elite right now and he's at home so he could offer solid production.
Big Ben is at his best when at home so he certainly has a chance, although the matchup isn't great on paper.

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.
