Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Newton reverted to his old form last Thursday against the Eagles, struggling with accuracy (three interceptions) but making things happen with his legs (71 yards rushing and a touchdown). The worrisome part is that Newton appeared to hurt his shoulder diving for the end zone in the second half of the game, and he clearly struggled to throw the ball after that. Even assuming there are no residual effects, it's not a fantastic matchup this week against Chicago, as the Bears have allowed the ninth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. His rushing ability gives him a solid floor, but temper expectations some. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bears are 7th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Newton's playing is trending upward and he is a QB1 this week.

 Rodgers gets a tough matchup this week, so he's only the second ranked quarterback! That's how good he is.
