Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
In London, so whatever that means. He's pretty average without a healthy Megatron but Falcons D can make anyone a star.
Seattle D really not elite right now and he's at home so he could offer solid production.

Atlanta's defense is bad and the Lions are probably getting Calvin Johnson back for their London game. All signs are pointing to Stafford having an excellent fantasy day.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Falcons are 13th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks, but Stafford should still be a QB1 against this struggling defense.
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.
