I look for Manning to start the season strong at home against a Colts D that was only 17th in 2013 against fantasy quarterbacks and will be without DE Robert Mathis.
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.
