Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
I like Newton a lot this week. The Texans have given up a league-high 1,507 rushing yards, and Newton should take advantage of them on the ground. His tendency to score rushing touchdowns instead of passing touchdowns adds to his upside, as you're likelier to get more points from him in the red zone as a result. Newton is a low-end QB1 this week, and while he isn't consistent enough to be a weekly starter, he's not a bad rotational, matchup-based starter. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Newton's pass numbers have been downright dreadful this season, but his tremendous abilities as a running back have kept him fantasy relevant. He's finished as a QB1 in each of the last three weeks, and there's a great chance he extends that streak to four in Week 11. Houston's defense has been pathetic this season, particularly against the run. Newton should be fired up as a top-10 play here.By this point in the season, Went's nickname should be Forrest. His performances this season have been like a box of chocolates... you never know what you're going to get. Despite plenty of uncertainty, it's tough to bench Wentz in a smash spot with Cleveland. He's a borderline QB1 here, but understand the volatility that comes with starting him.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If we were to extrapolate Newton's passing numbers over a full 16-game season, he'd finish with 3,070 passing yards and six touchdowns. I'm speechless. Fortunately, he has nine rushing touchdowns and is on pace to break his own single-season record of 14 rushing touchdowns by a quarterback. The Texans have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per actual pass attempt this year, but the lack of sheer volume they've faced, combined with lack of production they've allowed on the ground to quarterbacks has them allowing just the 15th-most fantasy points per game. They have allowed just 2.49 yards per carry to quarterbacks this year, which has helped them allow just 14.7 fantasy points on the ground to quarterbacks all season. Is that due to the running backs getting all the production you could want? Teams have chosen to run the ball on 48.0 percent of plays against them, which ranks as the second-highest mark in the league, and plays right into the Patriots' way, as they've run the ball on a league-high 47.7 percent of offensive plays. The Texans did play against Lamar Jackson back in Week 2 and held him to 54 scoreless yards on the ground, so it might not be a week to expect a two-touchdown rushing performance out of Newton, but given the matchup and how it plays into the way their offense is run, he should have enough volume to produce a high-floor, high-end QB2-type performance.I thought it was possible Wentz's bye week came at the right time. The pass-catchers were getting healthy, you know what to expect out of the offensive line, so go ahead and hit the reset button and refresh your season. That didn't happen. He completed just 56.8 percent of his passes, which makes it 6-of-9 games where he's failed to complete more than 58.1 percent of his passes. In today's NFL, this is pitiful. Rushing production and pure passing volume have saved him from a truly bad season, but he didn't have either of them going his way during their Week 10 loss to the Giants. Now going into a matchup with the Browns, who are ranked as the 13th-best matchup for pass attacks in Football Outsiders' DVOA rankings. We haven't seen much to suggest that over their last two games but knowing there were 50-plus MPH winds in both games, it makes sense. The last game they played with normal conditions was against the Bengals in Week 7 when Joe Burrow threw for 406 yards and three touchdowns. The Browns have allowed four different quarterbacks accumulate 34-plus rushing yards, which is something that'll provide Wentz with a better floor than he had last week. I'll be honest, it's extremely hard to project Wentz, who has finished with 21.4-plus points in four games this year but has also finished with 13 points or less in four games. We should expect plenty of passing considering the Eagles throw the ball 63.7 percent of the time (3rd-most) while Browns opponents throw the ball 60.4 percent of the time (10th-most). All in all, the Browns rank as the sixth-best matchup in adjusted opponent rank, so Wentz should at least be considered as a high-end QB2, but you must understand the volatility in his performances.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
The last three games, Newton has finished as the QB12, the QB8, and the QB11. Due to his rushing upside, he's a safe bet every single week to finish within the top-12. Now, Newton gets a matchup against the Houston Texans that are struggling to stop anyone on defense. Newton should be viewed as a mid-range QB1 in this matchup.Wentz is currently on a 16-game pace for 3,717 passing yards, 21 passing touchdowns, and 21 interceptions. Gross. It's not pretty in Philadelphia and it's getting very difficult to feel even remotely confident plugging Wentz into your starting lineup. It's a fine matchup on paper, with the Browns allowing the 11th most fantasy points to the QB position, but there's no way we can trust Wentz now. He's a risky high-end QB2 play this week with a wide range of outcomes.

The Texans are 11th against fantasy QBs, but Newton is starting to regain his stride after a strong fantasy game against Baltimore. He is a boom / bust Q2 on the road.
