Expert 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Since the Week 1 struggle, Brady has been firing and should have no issues providing another high-end QB1 performance in this week's shootout at home against Atlanta. 
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
Atlanta is ranked 10th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Brady should do very well against the Falcons at home. The Bears are 7th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Newton's playing is trending upward and he is a QB1 this week.
