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.Cobb has been quiet for several weeks in a row now, totaling 60 yards or less receiving in each of the past four weeks. The Saints present a good matchup on paper - they allow the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers, and struggle against slot receivers. But it's anyone's guess how the Green Bay gameplan will unfold with Brett Hundley under center. Cobb rarely scores touchdowns (just one on the season), so to start him would simply be a gamble that Hundley and Cobb show chemistry. That's a risk not worth taking in Week 7.

The Bears are 7th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Newton's playing is trending upward and he is a QB1 this week.
