The Bears have allowed the fourth fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks over the last 5 weeks, but Stafford should continue to be an elite QB1 at home.The Chargers are just 26th against fantasy quarterbacks over the last 5 weeks, Newton tends to play better at home and he should be motivated after being embarrassed on Sunday Night Football.
