Cam is banged up and the Bucs aren't slouches but he's still too explosive to count out here.
Smith has shown he can surprise, plus he's at home versus shaky Titans D.

Tampa Bay allowed the fourth most fantasy points to quarterbacks last year. I think they will be much improved under Lovie Smith, but Newton is still a low QB1 in this matchup.
