Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He's been flat out solid and he's in the desert against a pretty leaky Eagles D so you can trust him.
Seattle D really not elite right now and he's at home so he could offer solid production.

The Eagles are just 20th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks, Palmer should have some upside facing this defense at home.
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.
