I know its the Seahawks but Rodgers is fairly matchup proof and this is a huge game to start the year. He'll be fine.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Cam is banged up and the Bucs aren't slouches but he's still too explosive to count out here.

Newton is a game-time decision. Even if he plays, your backup QB is probably a better option this week.

- Austin Lee, FootballGuys

Rodgers is going to have a monster season, but he plays at Seattle to open the season. The Seahawks allowed the fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks last year and look as tough as ever.

Possibly lowest Rodgers gets ranked all season.

Playing a revitalized D, Newton will wear flak jacket.

You should always start your studs, especially in Week 1. But the Seahawks pass defense is beyond stellar. If there was a week to consider using your QB2 against a good match up, this would be one of them.

*Falling Star* - It is looking more likely that Newton will sit Week 1. If he does, his replacement will be Derek Anderson. Either way, the fragility of the decision making warrants a DO-NOT-START for CN. If he does start there is still a great chance he is pulled if the game gets out of hand or he is hit hard. Not worth the risk.
