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.Reed has battled injuries all year, but unlike previous seasons, he has not been able to overcome them to be effective. He hasn't had more than 48 yards receiving in any game this season, and has been significantly outpaced by backup tight end Vernon Davis. The Eagles aren't particularly imposing against tight ends, but they have a real weakness with their cornerbacks, and Kirk Cousins is likely to attack them with the Redskins' wide receivers, rather than Reed. Given the state of the position, Reed is still a borderline start here, but don't expect much production.

The Bears are 7th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Newton's playing is trending upward and he is a QB1 this week.Reed has not done much this year and the Eagles are 9th against fantasy tight ends. I would consider Reed a low-upside TE1 to high-end TE2 coming off a game where he had only 35 yards receiving against the San Francisco 49ers.
