Brady brings 9:0 TD:INT over last three into this game against a Bears D allowing a generous 12 passing TDs and 263 passing YPG this season.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
At home, on fire and facing bad Bears D. Not much to dislike here.
Seattle D really not elite right now and he's at home so he could offer solid production.

The Bears looked awful last week against the visiting Dolphins and now have to go on the road to face Tom Brady who has been outstanding the past two weeks. Tom Brady owners are glad they stuck with him.

The Chicago Bears are 17th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks and the locker room turmoil from last week could be a sign this team is ready to turn on each other and implode.
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.
